If anything, it just needs more of everything. Ultimately the characters only really differ in their spells, which means you could have given all the spells to the two starting characters and it wouldn’t have made a difference. On one hand, it’s good to see FrozenByte avoiding the trope of character classes, but on the other, Nine Parchments would have benefitted greatly from real variety in its characters. Given the diversity of Trine’s heroic trio, it’s a little disappointing.
Nine Parchments is a solid release. Its gorgeous art style, dependable controls and fun co-op play almost hide a multitude of sins. Almost. Unfortunately, with a poor save system and combat mechanics that never really develop from the first level onwards, Nine Parchments soon becomes a slog that is less than magical.
A game lovingly made by a studio with big ambition that, for the most part, succeeds. Single player and a lack of story are its downfall, but, none of that matters when you are adventuring with your friends and writing your own story!
