PlayStation LifeStyle writes: "With video games, nostalgia can be a challenging affair. Oftentimes, the over-the-top epic from yesteryear just falls flat, which is specifically why Trine is so refreshing. It's not a masterful remake of an old 16-bit staple, but it certainly plays like one. It's very much inspired by old-school platforming titles, albeit designed with more contemporary hardware in mind. What sets it apart is its presentation quality and the fact that it's a brand new IP. Contained within is a solid storyline that's somewhat tongue in cheek, and a strong gameplay experience."
