The first Trine was a great platform game. Awful voice acting but excellent game play and graphics. Definitely going to buy Trine 2 at this price.
#3

Fantastic! Thought I may have to wait a little longer for this price.

It certainly makes up for the last 30 minutes of my life:
A: Told by a Tesco self-checkout machine I have entered my '10 year strong' pin incorrectly 3 times.
B: Burning my eagerly anticipated fajitas under the grill.

Reflects the way I feel now.. Still, can't resist Trine 2. First one was awesome, and from the looks of it, this one's even better.

Have to say that one of my mates showed me this game which he thought was pretty good. I had a quick shot and simply thought, "If this was 1990 this would have been amazing..."

As it's 2012, it looked cute and that was the end of it for me. ;)

I'm afraid you don't have the intelligence to be described as a "mong".

Isn't the word "mong" a discriminating and negative term towards people with Downs Syndrome AKA "Mongoloid" people.

Due to your apparent lack of ability to understand what I typed - as well as your ability to use negative reference terms that may well prove insensitive to certain members on this board..let me spell this out for you:

I meant that if this game was available in 1990 and able to be played as it is today then it would have been amazing.

This has nothing to do with people who have disabilities.

Did you manage to figure out which planet I am on yet, or, was it too taxing for your brain?

For info, its free to PS+ user's on the PS3. I've downloaded it but not tried it yet.

You should maybe have a look at games available in 1990 and compare them to Trine 2 to see how stupid your original statement was and insulting to the developer. As for the word "mong" the mordern usage is to discribe someone who is lacking physical and cerebal ability. Yes, thats right, words evolve over time! Anyone that is offended by it's use on the internet is a bit of mong quite frankly.

Playstation Plus - pay monthly for a few games and early access to demoes and betas. Pretty good service.

So I'm a mong according to the urban dictionary definition, due to not finding a scrolling platform game exiting?

This is also deemed to be insulting to the developer.

Wow, that's some logic process you have there Sherlock.

I'd look out my Amiga 500 to relive the glory days of the platform game but it's not necessary.

Collins definition being as urban dictionary isnt good enough for you. Do you lack basic comprehension skills? Seems so. Did I call you a mong for not liking this game? No. I dont give a rats **** if you like this game or not. What I take exception to is you telling people what words they can and cannot use based off some stupid definition you have made up.

Saying the game looks like it could have been made in 1990 is insulting to the developer, yes...Sherlock Holmes wasn't required for this one. Anyone with a limited understanding of gaming history can answer that one.

Maybe you should "look out" your amiga 500 being as you couldnt give ONE example from the "glory days". I really wanted a good laugh at what you came up with as well. NEWSFLASH this game wouldnt have been possible 10 years ago let alone 22 years ago.

Betaman, I'm not certain if English is your first language, based on your misinterpretation of what I wrote?

Perhaps if you can explain where I said this game looks like it was made in 1990 might be a good starting point?

You could even try to demonstrate where I said you cannot use certain words too if you like?

It's all a figment of your imagination or perhaps a simple inability to comprehend English.

If this Zippo lighter was available in AD 577 and able to make fire as it is today then it would have been amazing. Hyperbole aside, that sentence doesn't really say much.
"if this game was available in 1990 and able to be played as it is today then it would have been unremarkable" would have been informative if you were suggesting that it appears it was made in the 90's, but you vehemently deny that.

Yep, I can totally see your point. If this game had been available to play in the 90's it would have been amazing. That doesn't make it any less amazing now though.

As the pics above ought to highlight, you can't possibly be suggesting the game has 90's graphics.
2D platformers in the 90's were pretty standard run and jump affairs, they didn't have massive cooperative play and the level of in-depth puzzles that Trine 2 offers so it surely can't be the content of the game that you are critiquing.
So it can only be the fact that it's a 2D platformer. Hmm. A tried and tested style is revamped and updated to produce a great game (as every review I've read collaborates), but because the style originated in the 90's (it was actually the 80's) you write it off as "cute" and dated.

I think what betaman and myself take umbrage at is the fact that you seem to have written of a great game simply because the genre isn't new. Every game release has its roots in the 80's and 90's; the genre's don't really change, they just evolve.

That said, you are entitled to your opinion; it would, however, seem reasonable to give the game more than a passing glance before you publicly denouncing it as dated.

The main problem you have is that I didn't say you couldn't use the word "mong" and I certainly didn't say the game looked like it was made in 1990. Epic fail #1

If you do have better things to do than argue semantics (not that I was talking about semantics anyway) with psuedo-intellects at least be advised that the word you are looking for is actually pseudo. Epic fail #2

That was exactly my point - nothing more nothing less. ;)
#33
I find myself almost speechless... My entire post was about how empty and meaningless that statement was!
My point was that if almost anything made today was magically made available in some period in history it would be amazing (god-like in some instances), but that has absolutely no bearing on its value today. Hence the second sentence in the paragraph that you quoted out of context and apparently managed to selectively read:

"Yep, I can totally see your point. If this game had been available to play in the 90's it would have been amazing.That doesn't make it any less amazing now though." [emphasised in the hopes that you can't miss it twice]

Post whatever you like from here on out; it appears that I share with betaman not only a distaste for vacuous sentiment, but also for pointless debate with pseudo-intellects. Feel free to correct any spelling mistakes I may, or may not, have made: that's always a great place to start when constructing a sound rebuttal.

Now if you don't mind, I'm going to go play Trine 2: A game that is available to play in 2012 and is amazing. A game that the OP found at a great price; sorry for hijacking your thread, have some heat :)
#34
There's nothing like flogging a dead horse is there?

Did I say the game was terrible, that nobody should play it?

No, I just said that it looked cute and that's the end of the game for me.

To make you feel better yes the game looks great - that's not a point I've been discussing.

Platform games don't really appeal to me in a nutshell, with my interests lying in the FPS genre these days.

Now get on with playing the game, enjoy yourself and stop trying to argue a case for something I didn't say in the first place.
