First of all this isn't a bad game by any means. It just lacks in certain areas. Game play- Its hack and slash but has RPG skills to use in combat. You run around kill things get xp and also get money and the occasional item drop. You level up and updrade skills with SP. You can block and evade, which is helpful. Some monsters are huge and you fight about 20 to 30 things at once. That about sums up gameplay.
Graphics- There seems to be some type of grainy filter applied to the overall look of the game. It makes the game look worse. Why they put a filter on i dont know. Unless your on a HD TV this game looks like bad its very dark and hard to see with no gamma option. But in HD it looks decent. Animations are average. Models both character and enemy look good. Effects are nothing spectacular but get the job done.
Presentation- Menus menus menus, thats all you see when your not fighting. Towns-menu, dialogue-chat boxes, and lots more. The only exploration you do is in the games zones. That do have multiple areas but if you don't like that idea watch out for this game. Not only are there a lot of menus but they are generic and plain. Nothing special something you would see on a DS or PSP game not a 60$ 360 game. If it was 40$ that would be the right price. Oh but there are cut scenes that are fully voiced and animated but there are few and they don't last long some only 20 seconds.
Lasting appeal- Well the game has tons of quests most are opttional. Quests are balanced and different. I would say there are about 10 different types of quests. They are fun and each one does feel unique. The game should take you about 20-30 hours if you do all the quests and try to max level to 50. Story is ok but nothing great.
Over all its a decent game. If your a fan of hack and slash rpg you will feel right at home with this game. Just dont let the simple interface and menu system get to you. Its definitely worth a rent or a buy at a cheaper price maybe 40$.
This is an action RPG with a heavy emphasis on combat and looting.
PROS: Lots of quests, good (although unoriginal) story, lots of loot, lots of character customization. Unique combat system. Plenty of things to do. Streamlined presentation.
CONS: Voicework is not very good, combat can get tedious, quests are mostly generic, no world exploration, boring characters.
Overall: I give this a 9, but that may be skewed because I am a big fan of Japanese RPGs. Most people will probably give this a 7. The game has some issues, but if you can overlook them, the game can be fun and engaging.

As a huge rpg fan i have played my fair share. Trinity offers nothing gamers havent seen done before. The story is bland and characters are very forgettable. You start out with your main character Areus thirsty for revenge for the death of someone close to him. Throughout your journey you will run into a few new characters. You can switch between characters the the push of a button. Each is designed for specific situations in battle. You have your tank, warrior, and rouge. The combat is strait forward you have 3 main attacks and it gets pretty repetitive. The graphics are ok nothing stellar. You pick up quests from a tavern or guild that are the basic go kill this collect this and return mission type. There are no towns to explore or openness to this game. Its all point and click where you want to go. With rpgs now days as open and free to do what and go where trinity offers none of that. Trinity just falls short on all aspects of what makes a good rpg. If you are a rpg fan looking for something to pass the time until something better comes out this would be good for a rent.
