"Trine 2: The Director’s Cut was the first time the series appeared on a Nintendo platform, way back at the Wii U’s launch. Over two years later, we finally get to see the first adventure the three heroes shared – and now we get that tale with significant visual improvements. So how does the game fare? Well, it’s not as good as the sequel. Of course it isn’t – the sequel improved on practically everything about the original. Even so, that doesn’t mean it doesn’t share the same beautiful visuals, stunning music, fantastical world, and clever gameplay as its follow up – and that means that it is most certainly worth checking out all the same, and is a great place for newcomers to start."
