    The Official Platinum Difficulty Discussion Thread

    Thanks to antoniosbandana of the Banner Team for making this banner.

    This thread is first and foremost a discussion thread, but it also has a poll. Please do not vote in the poll until you have earned the platinum trophy for this game. That being said, we invite you to post below and discuss the difficult aspects of the game, even if you do not yet have the platinum trophy in your collection.

    When you post, give more than just a number. Give reasons why you feel the game is easy or hard. What parts of the game are easy or hard? Were there collectibles? Were they a pain? Is there a required online component? How easy or hard is the online portion? What is the most frustrating part about the game?

    Once you have obtained the platinum trophy, feel free to return to this thread and post your official vote. Say something to the effect of "I give this a 2 because there was only one tough spot and the collectibles were easy to find". At this point, you may also add your vote to the poll.

    The poll is public, meaning everyone can see how you vote.

    Obvious spamming will not be tolerated. Moderators will take action against obvious spammers as necessary*.

    *NOTE: This Official Platinum Difficulty Discussion Thread and others like it constitute an Official Site Feature here at Misuse of this thread or this poll may count as an abuse of a site feature which is expressly forbidden in the site rules. Moderators will give punishments as necessary.

    This game is garbage. Bought it for 4.99 new a while ago and finally played it. What makes it so bad is that it's completely trophy driven. The collectibles are useless and more of an annoyance and they add hours to the game which to me is just absurd. Without a walkthrough you'd never find them all as you will die in the radiation, looking. I rated it as hard because it's more frustrating than hard... and in my books, that can be the same thing.

    I'm sure before the "dump" there were some useful tips on this site as I could add many. If you go for this one it's do-able but expect many angry moments especially during Commando mode.

    No save feature so you must reach checkpoints and if you die before that you lose everything gained during that mission...

    The trophies are all based on "challenges" forcing you to kill enemies in certain ways with certain weapons. Hence, any gamer not playing for trophies would be done this piece of trash in 2 hours on normal mode then shit on it then buy another copy, just to cover up the shit.

    This plat can be earned two different ways:

    1) Separate runs for collectibles/challenges vs. commando difficulty: If you do it this way, then the game should be moderate difficulty. The sniper areas are hard on commando difficulty, but if you find Mmac's youtube walkthrough then you can pin down a solid strategy to avoid the sniper fire. Most of the in-game challenges are not hard to execute, but it can be difficult knowing when to do so.

    2) All-in-one platinum run: I opted not to do this but it can be done. Expect the plat to be in the hard/very hard difficulty range if you choose this route. (Since this is optional, I choose moderate as the standard difficulty.)

    Note also, this game has a significant learning curve for swing mechanics. I've found that if I play it twice on the standard difficulty, then reaching collectibles and surviving commando difficulty will become naturally easier on later playthroughs.

    This game has some drawbacks, including radiation mentioned by the previous poster. That being said, if you expect to plat this game in one playthrough with no prior experience with swing mechanics (and knowing how short the game is) then this game may not be for you. If you want this plat, the gameplay takes some getting used to. Once you're used to it, the difficulty is moderate.

    If you plan on raging your way to this plat in one quick playthrough, you should reconsider everything I wrote above.
    I'll censor anything anyone writes except for this for-profit advertisement found at the top of my signature. Rawr.
