In ending, I'd conclude that Trine is a good game, but it was a little over-hyped. While it was nice to play a side-scroller for the first time in several years, the game doesn't necessarily leave an outstanding impression. It's certainly is priced well now ($20), and is fun, but I think the difficulty could have been upped a bit, and I would have like to see a little more variety with the enemies. If you love side-scroller platforming games, then you'll certainly want to pick this one up. For the more casual fan it's a bit more difficult to say one way or the other. The graphics are great, the gameplay is fairly good, but it does get somewhat repetitive after a while, and it is somewhat short at around 5 to 6 hrs. For the casual gamer on the budget, wait for a sale. If money isn't much of a concern and you enjoyed the trailers/demo, it seems worth it.
