    The Official Platinum Difficulty Discussion Thread


    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*.

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.

    2 - Easy

    The vast majority of the trophies come through just playing the game the way it is meant to. The game is intended to be played co-op, so even the online trophies aren't that difficult, especially if you bring along a friend for the ride. Grinding to 50 is a bit annoying, and unless you're up for excessive farming, or exploits, it's going to take nearly two play throughs to get that trophy. Not difficult, but not something that is going to be achieved over a weekend rental either.

    Easy - Playing around the many annoying glitches will likely hinder your progress more so than difficulty.

    The plat wasn't difficult at all. Hell even the collectable trophy was easy considering that anything be it evidence, ID, Weapon Mod on any character counted toward the 120 needed. Sure grinding to lvl 50 was a bit of a pain but it wasn't terrible. Doom rates this plat as Easy.

    As stated by many the trophies came pretty naturally. Lvl50 was a grind but I got to Lvl43 by normal means and playing. Only 1 trophy was a pain with MP and that was having 4 different characters. But finding 4 ppl isnt to hard to pull together. Gave it an EASY!

    3- Moderate - most trophies are pretty simple and easy to obtain, online was pretty good too, I found a lot of people playing. The originality trophy was actually the first i got online. Theres a few tricks to help you get to Lvl 50 quicker. Overall was pretty fun, I spent about 50 hours getting the plat and just took my time for the most part.
    Also the there and back again trophy seemed pretty glitched. I got it on my second playthrough. I only had 2 areas left and it turned out to be the Prison kitchen and changerooms, which i would of gone through on my first playthrough

    Moderate - A lot of the trophies do indeed come naturally as people have stated. I didn't think 'One Is All I Need' was gonna be doable but I finally made the Mindblowing Military Knife developer mod and got it no problem. 'There And Back Again' gave me some fits trying to find the last location that I needed. It ended up being a village in the Jungle that I needed to find. And 'Right For Life' glitched on me and it was the last one I needed. Trophy stat said I had successfully played as all the characters, so I quit to the XMB and restarted and it then said I had to play as all 4 characters again. Then I played from chap 4 with my level 50 Sam B who i originally beat the game with and it popped. Really fun game to play co op, but i had a lot of difficulty connecting to people a lot of the times. Do yourself a favor and don't spend too much on this buggy kinda POS game either. definitely would class this game as a bargain bin buy.

    3 - Moderate. Though most of the trophies are easy to obtain, dealing with the myriad connection issues make the online trophies a complete pain in the @$$. The night I earned the Plat, I had to quit to xmb menu or restart the system no less than SEVEN TIMES and reload to get it to work "maybe" long enough to connect for 15 minutes for progress towards "People Person". The friend that I was primarily playing with joined the game I was hosting (along with a couple other players) and he was receiving the "People Person" status updates a full 2 - 3 minutes before me. The game was fun in single player and a lot of fun in co-op when it actually decided to work. The fact that less than 20% of people that own the game own the Plat must mean that the game is not as easy as everyone makes it out to be.....

    I would have said very easy if it wasnt for the online trophies including the Arena DLC. Besides the Lvl 50 trophy, all others were pretty straightforward as long as you find a good area to achieve some of the trophies (burning 10 zombies at once, for instance). but just bc of the online trophies and the connectivity issues, this game is already traded in almost the next day of 100%/Plat

    I rate this game as 2. Easy.
    I enjoyed this game a lot and most of the trophies were pretty easy. This was my first platinum.
    I even got the DLC trophies for this game, and this is the only game I got all the DLC trophies for.
    A great and enjoyable game!

    I'm giving it a 3 because of the crazy amount of glitches and the disgusting matchmaking. Finding other players or joining friends seemed impossible for most of the time.
    Setting 10 zombies on fire at once took a dozen tries. It's a fun game, but it takes some while.
