    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.

    I voted 3 - Moderate, especially if you use the glitch. I mentioned it here before the forums got reset and will mention it again here. It makes a hardcore playthrough of all levels but the first one easier. Play the game until you get the filecard for and purchase Agent Helix. Her special ability (the circle button) is a sheild that protects her for about 10 seconds or so. Then for any mission, select Agent Helix and another character and begin mission. Once the mission begins you must acquire 2 shields for use, but don't use them until you get 2.

    Once you have 2 shields, use the first shield and stand still. When the shield blinks to let you know you have a few seconds left, use the second shield. You will have 2 shields for a second and then both will dissappear. You will still hear the shield sound effect for a few seconds and will be impervious to everything except melee attacks. Lasers, missiles, explosions will not harm you, only melee attacks. This only applies to Agent Helix and does not make the other character invincible, meaning that if you switch to your other character it will be mortal. Also, if you use another shield it will stop her "invincibility".

    Most of the other trophies were pretty easy. There may be glitches with the "Storm Shadowed" trophy if you don't play those levels initially on Casual difficulty, as you are revived on the spot when you die and will not have to replay a level. You will need a second controller for three trophies, and possibly a friend for one of those ('No "I" in Team'). It's a little time consuming if you go through all levels first on Casual and then replay them on Hardcore. It's also best to have a guide to look at to see where all the collectibles are, and many can be found online.

    Any ideas on how to get the Hardcore score on the very first board? I have been trying over and over again to go those last two bonus points, but I can't score high enough. You wouldn't think that the very first board in the game would be this ridiculous LOL...
