However pretty it is, for some reason I didn’t quite gel with Trine 2 at first. The controls were fiddly, having to swap character and weapon and use all the buttons and the touch screen, and as much as I wanted to love it, I didn’t.
Then, when I realised it’s the only Wii U game I have that I haven’t completed (aside from Nintendo Land, which I’m not sure counts? That’s a debate for another time, perhaps), I got back on it.
After a couple of hours, I was hooked. The controls suddenly worked, and I went through the whole of the rest of the game having fun. Or so I thought, since the end of the game, the final chapter (called “The Final Chapter”), referenced online as the final chapter, isn’t actually the final chapter. There was more. A lot more.
You see, I’d not read anywhere (and still haven’t seen it mentioned anywhere) that the Wii U version of Trine 2 actually includes the DLC episode “The Goblin Menace” from the other platforms. Which, it seems, is about half as long as the main game. Bonus!
So I’m now about an hour into that. Awesome.
