Trine 2 is Out Now and Looks Simply Amazing with 3D Vision

December 11th, 2011 · 9 Comments · Stereo 3D Games

If you have missed playing the first Trine game, then you should not miss Trine 2 for sure. Trine got a 3D Vision Ready certification some time after its release and looked really nice when played with 3D Vision in stereo 3D mode, but the new Trine 2 game is even better. Trine 2 is out for a few days already and although when you run it with 3D Vision enabled you will see that there is no 3D Vision profile for the game, it will work and look great in stereo 3D mode…

The game even has a menu with controls for adjusting the 3D effect, both for depth and convergence in the game as well as a separate control for the menu. And everything works very well apart for one very minor issue that I’ve noticed – the in-game crosshair’s depth (and some in-game hints’ depth) is varying based not on what it is passing over, but based on what settings for depth and convergence you have set. So depending on your 3D settings and where you position it, it might get semi-transparent if it passes behind some objects. Anyway, this is not a serious issue at all and can easily pass by without bothering you at all, especially considering the fact that the game looks really impressive when you increase the depth and play with the convergence. So definitely something that you should try, and don’t forget to set the monitor at 120 Hz refresh rate from the game launcher when running Trine 2.

    I’ve played this game with a friend half way through the game. This game is absolutely gorgeous in 3D.
    Everything about it is so beautifully made.
    Very much recommended for anyone!

    On a side-note I would like to add, that you can increase the depth beyond the limit in the game by editing the options.txt file in your user in appdata. There is a more detailed explanation over at the 3dvision forum, and the results are better with more separation.

    best 3d game so far… played yesterday after check this review and it is great!!!
    The game itself is not so good, but the environment and depth is the best.

    Just wanted to point out that with Tridef3D, it seems that Trine2’s in-game Stereoscopic 3D Effects options sliders have no effect whatsoever. Presumably they only work with 3D Vision. It still looks great at default settings using Tridef’s Trine profile, but there are shadow artifacts and also it seems like the convergence is not quite right, and unchangeable. But overall it looks great.

    I’ve been stereo 3D gaming for the last 10 years, and Trine 2 could well be the contender for the most beautiful 3D game there has ever been.

    I can only imagine how the artists feel when they see their creations come to life with 3D vision technology.
