    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 PS3T.com. 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.

    Bioshock was a fun game to plat, but the reason why I voted Moderate, because of Survivor Difficulty

    2. Easy

    Great game one of those next gen games that's a must play/own just because its something different from your typical FPS game. I voted easy because once you get the research camera, camouflage and the gun that shots different elements the game becomes way to easy.

    3 Moderate The only that was kinda tough was I choose the impossible as not using any vital chambers on the hardest difficulty setting. It was hard at first since you were weak, but once you start getting powered up then it becomes easier. Not using the vital chambers is really just more of an inconvenience than hard.

    4 - Hard : Survivor mode is extremely challenging for the first few levels, but the game naturally gets easier as you go on, instead of adapting to how powerful you are. All of the other trophies are pretty easy. If you want a real challenge, get the Challenge Room DLC. You might say you'd be in for a world of hurt.

    Moderate - It has some challenges but overall not too tough. The dlc would be a 4 or 5 though.

    2 - Easy.
    The only thing that might get irritating is Survivor difficulty without Vita-Chambers. But it no longer becomes a problem once you get the Natural Camouflage Tonic. Survivor mode is actually really fun.

    4. Hard-This game is definitely a challenge. Most of everything can be pretty easy but survivor is what gets you. I remember going through it the first time not thinking it was too difficult but replayed it over a year later realizing just how difficult it was. As you go through it does get easier but the first few levels can get you pretty frustrated.

    Moderate - Nothing overly challenging in the game. Survivor can be tough in the beginning, especially the 1st few levels, but as you get plasmids and tonics it becomes a ton easier.

    Meh - once you get by the first couple stages on survivor it's pretty easy.

    Moderate

    Certainly there is a challenge playing the first few levels on Survivor, but the difficulty decreases as the game progresses. The game excels at letting the player move deliberately while letting the environment do a majority of the work in defeating bad guys. An all around fantastic experience. Save often.

    Moderate. Survivor was not a walk in the park for the first few levels, but it's really doable and all the other trophies are pretty easy to obtain.

    Moderate, I personally suck a lot at FPS based games. But survivor wasn't that hard for me. You just got to know what plasmids to use.

    Beating the game with not vita chambers is relatively easy as well, just save often.

    I see what you did there.

    I also voted hard, although I did it in one playthrough (Survivor, no Vita Chambers). Had I split it up, it probably would have been moderate.

    Moderate because of the survivor difficulty trophies. It starts off pretty hard, especially the first big daddy fight. Once you start getting a few more powers and upgrading weapons it gets easier the further you go.

    Ah, my first plat. This one was a blast to get. I didn't find survivor mode to be a pain at all. I had a really fun time strategizing my way through it, and the only annoyance I had was the journals.

    Moderate.

    Hard- Survivor handed me my butt for a while. Near the end it gets easier, but it was still a bit of a challenge.

    I voted Bioshock as a moderate platinum. I managed to get it in one playthrough on Survivor, which was admittedly taxing to begin with. Once you work out a rhythm and the best way to take down the Big Daddies (Security Cameras ftw) it became a lot easier to progress.

    Voted Moderate. Those 1st few Big Daddy's were tough.
