How difficult?

13 posts in this topic

I am late to the party but I must say that Trine has slowly become one of my favorite indie game series in a long time.

 

The characters, the humor, the atmosphere, I just love soaking it in.

 

The first Trine presented a tad of a challenge in a couple places but it was fairly easy. Trine 2 on the Playstation 3 was a cakewalk, Trine 3: The Artifacts of Power was a collectahon but was also a cakewalk.

 

Trine 2: Complete Story looks to be in a completely different league. The levels are much more involved and longer than they were in the first game, as well as more difficult. I think this will be quite a challenge since I hear that it's quite tough later on in Hardcore Mode. In fact less than 10 percent of players have even made it to the last few levels. Maybe this game was on Playstation Plus at some point but I wasn't here to take advantage of that.

 

How difficult is the game? I'm aware I'm asking a pretty obvious question, but this would definitely be a nice game to add to my collection, and it would round out the series.

I've played it quite a lot and it was challenging but nothing to be afraid of.

It was indeed on PS plus at one time. I got it back then. I consider myself an average-to-fairly-skilled gamer, and I managed to get through it, albeit with a bit of frustration here and there. If you're fond of Trine, though, I'd say go for it, since you'll probably enjoy the time spent! :)

It really isn't that tough. It uaed to be harder because missions would randomly not count as being completed and there was no way of telling which levels counted, but they have since added a method of stat tracking so the issue is only a minor annoyance if it even still occurs.

 

Play this game, it is a superb platformer. Skip 3 unless you are a rabid fan.

I found this one the hardest of the 3 games. Low Grav Arrows makes a lot of stuff easier but many levels are taking me 3-4 times on Hard/Hardcore to complete.

@Spaz  Responding to an older topic, I know, but I was wondering how you found the difficulty, if you've played the game since asking for yourself.  Such a rare platinum trophy, and I'm curious why so many seemingly threw up their hands and walked away.

@IntroPhenom I have not played the game yet. 

 

I think it’s because most people probably played no more than a hour or two before giving it up and moving on to something else. 

 

It definitely isn’t a game most people played through and gave up because of one trophy. Vanquish is a pretty good example.

I've played the game a few times. Beating the game on on hard with hardcore mode is the blocker. It is extremely difficult. I have not been able to get very far on it. Everything else can be done with a guide or without much difficulty once you have all the skills/upgrades. Regardless of the trophies, it is a wonderful game worth experiencing. And if you have a 3D TV, the 3D is amazing. Once of the best games for 3D.

I already said this and i will say it again, i don't know why this game have an ultra rare platinum!. In fact, it was one of my easiest UR, and as you can see viewing my profile, i'm an average player.

Took me one week and a couple of days doing 2 or 3 levels per day on hardest mode. Some levels are way easier than others.
all you need for this one is patience and perseverance. Of course, some youtube guides helped too with some bosses.

 

Oh, and the game is pretty great.

I only have a couple more levels to finish, but I feel like I've done enough to judge. People way over judge how hard it is. Getting all of the experience per level is pretty tedious IMO, especially in the later levels, but hardcore isn't that bad.

I'm about 2/3 of the way through the levels so far. Some of the parts can be a bit tricky to figure out, but overall it's not too bad! One downside is there is no way to save progress on the individual levels, which can be problematic considering how long some of them are. If you have to quit out, you are stuck starting back at the beginning.

 

The odds and ends trophies aren't difficult at all, most of them just require specific powerups to be able to do. There is a nice trophy guide out there that makes it pretty easy to know where to do them and how. Plus with chapter select, that makes cleanup a breeze!

 

The obvious big barrier here is Harcore Mode. But like anything else, it would just take a bit of patience and perseverance to get through! I've been a fan of this series since PS3, and this particular iteration is phenomenal! I highly recommend checking it out if you haven't yet.

Thanks for the responses everyone. I'll be playing this pretty soon, hopefully it is just as much fun as Trine: Enchanted Edition was.
