The coop action with your friends is a blast your first time through the game... but it’s the exact same campaign It’s also dependent on your ability to communicate with your teammates. It’s great fun with 3, but personally, the discovery of doing it all alone is much better. If there was more stuff that could be done in coop, or more levels that were designed for it, ala Portal 2’s multiplayer component, it would be much better.
While the enemy variety isn't too deep, the enemies are so beautiful that you don't care if you see the same one every now and then.
I love this game, but the vaunted addition of online co-op really doesn’t do much for me. A game like this was made for local co-op, with a bunch of friends yelling at each other—not fumbling around on Ventrilo. Trine 2 is still a stellar sequel that is worth every penny, but it’s a fairly short ride and the replayability is strictly up to you and your love for collection, or breaking the physics engine and flying across the stage on a levitating box while doing your best Magneto impression.
That is pretty badass though….
