    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*.

    2 - Easy. Long though. The toughest difficulty is frustrating in a few spots, but not many. Then there's a 30-60 hour grind to reach 75% completion in a game that presents 400 sq km of sandbox. Whoa.

    3 - Moderate

    Time to reach the 75% completion is going to be the main bugaboo in keeping people reaching this Platinum. There is also the case of needing to finding all 104 vehicles. Most of the kill variety trophies will come in the dozens of area takeovers you will be doing. A very fun sandbox game that opens up quite early and lets you play how you want. A time sink of a game that will eat up dozens of hours to reach the Platinum trophy.

    Moderate: Story wasn't hard but the 75% completion was a huge and boring grind.

    Moderate for this.
    Some bits could be annoying but nothing much.
    I gave it moderate mainly for the amount of time spent playing it for certain trophies.

    3 - Moderate. Grind grind grind - but still quite fun. Some trophies are a little tricky, but nothing too hard.

    3 Moderate- Like everyone said, it's that perfectionist trophy. I am at 59% right now. I have every other trophy finished except this one. It doesn't help that for every village you 100%, you only get .1% toward your completion rate. That means I need to complete at least 150 villages, what a boring grind I have ahead of me! It will be done none the less!

    It's not so hard, but it takes a long time.
    I played this game for 3 weeks until I had the platinum. I will give it a 3/5.

    Moderate, even the hardcore run isn't too much troubles. Took me around 70 hours to platinum it because of the 75% trophy.

    3 - Moderate

    Easy, but time consuming. I think it took me just under 80 hours. The game is crazy fun, though lots of grinding can diminish that a bit.

    Easy - Just pretty time consuming. Put 80 Hrs into this one to plat it but I loved every minute of it. One of my absolute favorite games!

    I gave it a 3. I started to lose my mind towards the end but had fun! Really starts to get repetitive after you've finished the actual missions but still not hard to plat.

    3 - Moderate

    I chose 3 due to the amount of time it takes to get 75% completion. The actual difficulty of the missions was not bad but, it seemed much harder during Mercenary Mode (free roam after all agency missions) when sabotaging and collecting resource items.

    Suggestions to make the completion go a little faster:
    1. Assassinate all colonels... they give .14% each
    2. Complete all the Challenges (even the ones left after that trophy)... They give .10% each
    3. Sweep through multiple bases and villages with a helicopter to destroy everything you can; then go back through them on foot to collect resource items.

    Found this game to be 2 - Easy

    The only roughest parts of the game were finding all 104 vehicles, but that wasn't hard at all, and some of the challenges, which you didn't need to do all 75, only 50.

    Best way to get up to 75%

    Found the game to be easy. A grind in places but a lot more entertaining than other games I've had to grind in.

    Just got this platinum and voted Moderate as it so time consuming to achieve that most people simply don't have the patience.
