Review Summary

StrongCritic Consensus

Trine 4: The Nightmare Prince is a return to form for the series, correcting the mistakes seen in the predecessor as well as implementing a number of clever and fun gameplay features.

A Joyous Return to Form

Trine 4 corrects the ambitious mistakes of it's predecessor by taking the series back to its 2.5D roots.

Terrific Co-op Gameplay

The Trine series has always been renowned for its fantastic co-op gameplay and 4 more than delivers on this front.

Overly Simplistic

The gameplay might be a bit too simplistic for those craving more of a challenge.

Outrageously pretty and newly refined, Frozenbyte's series finally strikes gold.

Trine 4 is beautiful and perhaps a bit too straightforward for solo players, but it shines brilliantly in co-op.

Puzzle design does the heavy lifting for Trine 4, a fun but ultimately hollow experience.

A welcome return to form for the series, and while the co-op puzzle-solving no longer seems quite as original as it once did it's never been as enjoyable or varied as this.

Really, that's how I could sum up Trine 4. It's an easy recommendation for platform fans, but it's also just a plain fun time. It's not revolutionary or trailblazing, but it does what it needs to prove that Frozenbyte hasn't lost its touch. I wouldn't necessarily expect a Trine 5 or anything, but clearly, this series has some life left in it.

Whether you’re alone, with friends, or living in a box, Trine 4 is an old school co-op adventure worth taking.

Frozenbyte returns with a fourth installment of its saga of puzzles and platforms that shows that the study still knows how to create smart gameplay riddles. Trine 4: The Nightmare Prince is a reconciliation between the franchise and its fans, an ode to their first two games that polishes and further refines what they presented to the world when they went on sale.

Review in Spanish | Read full review

Trine 4: The Nightmare Prince is a lovely return for the series' 2.5D puzzle platforming. It tinkers with and broadens the gameplay options to be more welcoming, and levels can feel a little stretched out at times, but grab a couple of friends and stick it on Classic mode, and this will delight fans of those first two games.
