If nothing else, this game is the most beautiful game I have seen all year, and that is with 50 hours into Skyrim. It may not be game of the year, but it definitely has the visuals portion down. I just started playing, but in the first 10 seconds I was captivated by the look of this game. So captivated I texted my wife while she was teaching nurses... I'm sure she had it on silent. Anyways, I am two chapters in (levels) and it looks amazing! It's like playing through Fantasia. It's only $15 on Steam. I encourage anyone who at least likes things that look pretty to... Take a look?
To all GOTY Discussions... WAIT!
So far it's at least as good as the first one in all aspects except there is no loot(that I've found anyways). In the first Trine exploring crazy areas or solving difficult side puzzles could reward the player with cool pieces of loot that would have pretty significant buff properties on them. So far all I've got from all the secret chest I've found is poems and artwork. The poems appear to kind of string together in a kinda "Halo 3 ODST Audio Log-esque" way, but man I want loot bro, got that loot lust! It made figuring out puzzles way more rewarding.
I'm 2 hours in and I'm loving the combat.
The repetitive combat ruined the first game for me. Is the combat any better in this?
- As Amadeus (wizard), I can either create crates/planks on top of enemies to crush them, or pick up enemies and throw them around (magic upgrade) <== the most fun ever!
- As Zoya, I use the bow to shoot them. The beauty of it is that you can buy an ice upgrade for the arrows which slows down the big enemies/freezes the smaller enemies (so you can BASH them to bits as the warrior afterwards)
- As Pontius (warrior), you can upgrade your shield so it stuns the enemies when they hit it / slash them with your sword (which has a fire upgrade) or bash them with the sledge hammer
I'm looking forward to the upcoming upgrades, like multiple arrows for Zoya or throwing hammers for Pontius, and the enemies are much more dynamic and awesome than Trine's skeletons.. they're well animated goblins!
