Ratings and Reviews
Good but problem with Right Click
I have had a lot of fun with this game. One control issue I had was with the right clicking. On my Mac Book Pro, my control click registered as only a regular click in the game. However when I went to change the controls in the menu, my control click did register as a right click to set a new control for the levitate/shield/grapple. But then if I returned to the game, I couldn't right click. I did end up changing the command to just right control, but that was a little bit annoying, particularly for the grappling.
This game will replace whatever you had in your heart as an all-time favorite. Quickly will Trine 2 become that game you always look upon with fondness and deep regard. Mushy stuff aside, the graphics are STELLAR! Even on my 2012 MacBook Air; no complaints. If you’re into puzzles, guess what? There’s multiple solutions to each one! You’re not stuck looking up BS strategy guides or googling for boss info. Nay, you ARE the strategy guide.
Don’t listen to the “controls don’t work” reviews, they just don’t know how to use a Mac yet (no offense intended). If you’re using a single button mouse, it will require some additional configuration within the game (as stated before). Although you’ll need to fiddle around a bit to set up what works for you, it’s a million times worth it. You will never have a bad thing to say about Trine 2. Trust me, I’ve been searching for a game like this for almost 15 years now. Some have come close, but this is the total package.
It’s inexpensive, the content is robust, the length is adequate, and the graphics are stellar. What more do you want in a game?! Buy it. Buy it now. Stop reading this and go click the green button up there. You’ll be happy you did.
Worth every penny
Things I like about this game include the completely gorgeous and atmospheric graphics, the ability to switch among three characters who have different abilities and can attain different upgrades, the puzzles that are just challenging enough but not so hard that I'm always having to check a walkthrough to get to next stage. I really like that the same puzzle can often be solved in more than one way, depending on which abilities you prefer to use.
NOTE: I noticed one review was unable to get the controls to work. You can fix this by reconfiguring the keyboard controls so that when you press the left-hand command key (without clicking mouse) , you get the same thing as a right-click or whatever the default is. (Some Mac users only have a one-click mouse like me). You CAN change it, although altering the settings is not the most intuitive process.
It is sometimes difficult to execute complex sequences of movements with the keyboard, however. I did get the hang of it, but some players might want to completely change the keyboard command settings so they aren't playing "Twister" on the keyboard.
The only thing I didn't like about Trine 2 is this difficulty in doing things like rapidly switching directions mid jump or perfectly timed jumps to get past certain puzzles. Fortunately, there is often a different way to solve the puzzle, so be creative!
