To start on a personal anecdote, this particular editor had the pleasure of playing Trine 2: Complete Story for his first review at Push Square two years ago, and much to our surprise, we were delighted that it was a magical indie title that boasted some of the greatest visuals we’d seen with phenomenal puzzles and platforming to boot. Needless to say, we jumped on the chance to turn the pages in a new chapter for the series’ three heroes with Trine 3: The Artifacts of Power, so with a drastic transition to 3D environments and gameplay, does the series transcend to new levels of wonderment and possibilities or has it veered off the path to unhappy endings? We’re sad to report that the latter is true, and in more ways than one.
