I agree with Trine. The first one was pretty decent but didn't finish it, I lost interest quickly in the second one.
Never played any of Trines alone, always 3 people coop, but liked 1 and 2, 3 was not so great, 4 is ok.
Oh I totally agree, it was a complete bore. Not even really a game, just one very long and dull cutscene.
It is the most overrated game of all time for sure. Some people claimed that it was the game of the decade, or even the best game they ever played, huh? I guess they had played exclusively Pong? But even Pong has more gameplay so I take that back.
That's the difference I guess. I played Trine alone, didn't like it. I played Journey about 20 times from start to finish, different experience each time with random people. From speed running to exploring off limit areas.
