The unfinished story
The first two games in the series to which this is the third entry, Trine and Trine 2, were splendidly imaginative and rich experiences that deserve to be played. There are therefore high expectations for this sequel but sadly it fails to live up to the standards of its predecessors. The game is an adventure which mixes puzzles and action in a fairy tale world but has too many faults to make it a definite recommendation. Heroes from the previous games are reunited when they decide to return their unique gifts to the mystical artifact called Trine, but in doing so, they release a sorcerer from imprisonment and thus embark on an epic quest to undo the harm they have caused. What follows is a 3D adventure which requires platforming, exploring and puzzling skills in order to complete, as you venture through what is an undoubtedly beautiful fairy tale land. There are heaps of bizarre contraptions and characters to meet along the way, while there are also various forms of multi-player to try out. While this could have been a great adventure, it's let down by several major faults which really get in the way of enjoyment. Although the 3D visuals are superb, the awful camera system prevents you from moving around or making jumps properly and which just causes major headaches with every step. The controls are just as bad, and only serve to make the issue worse, while the game has a distinct air of being unfinished. Throw in a very short running time and you have one big wasted opportunity.
