    'Supposedly' Easy Platinums

    Hi All,

    Have you encountered any games that are supposedly easy to Platinum, yet experience great difficulty in doing so? I’ve come across a few in recent months that are proving to be absolutely infuriating:
    • Eat Lead – The Return of Matt Hazard (40 of 51) I rented this game in 2009, and recently bought it for 3.99 to finish the trophies. I simply CANNOT get past the sniper section at the beginning of level 3 on maximum hazard difficulty.
    • Call of Juarez: The Cartel (49 of 51) Despite 4 plays (including one with the invincibility glitch and avoiding combat), I have still not obtained the ‘Clean Shot’ trophy.
    • My Sims: Skyheroes (8 of 49) The AI on this game blatantly cheats, worse than I have ever seen, and makes every mission an absolute chore. At present, I’m stuck with a level 1 plane. Hoping if I can force myself to keep playing, the stronger aircraft will make this more tolerable.
    Apologies if a similar thread exists. I thought this could be used to vent frustrations on games that are played for an easy Plat, and instead becomes hard, tedious work.

    I actually found terminator Salvation really hard, It took me over 24 hours of game time to complete the game and get the . However that maybe because my skills at shooters can only be compared to inanimate objects such as a table or a light switch.

    For me that game is Tomb Raider Annivesrary with some of those time trials as not only a few of them being 30 mins long but must be done fast and not messing up much but that can be a challenge due to the controls . Most people found this easy but not me, even Twisted Metal felt easier than this lol.

    With a name like Lego Rock Band, you'd expect it to be a pushover, particularly compared to the other Rock Band titles.

    But no... Final Countdown - Score 100% on the Guitar Solo in "The Final Countdown" on Expert is a nightmare!

    Carnival Island for me. I got it free and decided to write the trophy guide for it (thinking 10 hour plat at best). Some of those challenges are brutal. It says on the cover something like "Kid Approved" but you need pinpoint accuracy and very quick reflexes to get all the golds. I'm serious if you see anyone with that give them rep because it is a tough son of a bitch.

    Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days was supposedly easy but that game kicked my ass from beginning to end on the hardest difficulty.

    I have the MySims plat and I wrote the guide for that game. It's true, the AI is maddeningly unfair at times, but if you just keep trying you'll win the races/events you're stuck on. Surely you can improve from only 8 trophies

    Legends of WrestleMania
    Smackdown Vs Raw

    Didn't really spend enough time on them but my god the combat mechanics are too confusing and seemed extremely slow. I remeber wrestling games been easy to pick up and play on the PS2 without this much of a learning curve.

    inFAMOUS. One would expect it to be an easy Plat given that most people have it, but some of the stunts are purely luck-based or require certain Karmic powers and the Blast Shards can be really annoying. Not really a difficult Plat, but not as easy as one would think.

    For me the first game that comes to mind is Hary Potter and the Half Blood prince. Getting the Flying badge was hard for me.

    This.

    Although I have yet to play it on my new ID...on my old ID, I couldn't get past level 2 on hard when you're being chased by the van or whatever and you have to shoot out of the back of the truck. I just got pissed off and never continued from there.

    I'll eventually try again someday....maybe...maybe not...

    Lol I'm actually trying it now. Im following your guide btw, ill be sure to rep you when I'm done. I dont suppose you can remember when level 2 parts are unlocked? Ive currently done 25% of the story.

    EDIT - It unlocked after 'Rock the Ragnarok'.

    I seem to remember wanting to rip my hair out in God of War. That 10th Challenge of the Gods challenge with the rising platform almost gave me an aneurysm.

    I remember getting something like 347 out of 350 blast shards, and having to restart the game, using a map and ticking them off.
    The stunt list wasnt easy either, particularly if you had already completed the story.

    Mine would be the first PoP. For whatever reason. I just cannot nail that 14 hit combo to save my life. I always end up missing that 11th or 12th hit. I've been trying to get that trophy for close to 3 years now, off and on. I'll load up the game give it a few tries. Get pissed. Then put it back on the shelf for another 4-5 months.
