    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*.

    3 - Moderate

    Love this game. Some collectibles, some kills with each of the various weapons, mixed with a little bit of skill based trophies. The only kicker is that it requires 3 play throughs on Easy, Normal, and Hard in order to get the Platinum. Not really a problem, since the game is pretty fun and not overly long or boring. Great atmosphere, dialogue, controls make this Platinum fun, and with lines like, "Let me know if I have to fuck a horse to open a door" what's not to love!

    "Easy", because this is an incredibly straightforward platinum, and no missable trophies, as long as you know where to get enough Red Gems for maxing out your weapon upgrades. Bosses are fairly easy or hard depending on the difficulty, but doable for the average gamer. Neither too scary nor too light-hearted, this is a good game to pass your time! =3

    3-Moderate
    The only reason for moderate is if you do not know about the Red Gem glitch it can be quite difficult to upgrade your weapons on your Legion play otherwise a solid "2-Easy".
    Great play and script with several very humorous quotes. You have 3 play-throughs to complete without being able to skip some of the cinema bits, which can be annoying at times. Most annoying part is when Angel chases you. That stupid b*tch just wouldn't give me a break.
    Other than that a very enjoyable game, not short and not too time consuming for the three required plays.

    I voted it moderate.

    Overall fun game, but it does have a few draw backs to me.

    The chase scenes can be annoying, the first side scrolling mission was fun and a nice change of pace but after that, it lost it's luster quick, and the Hotboner levels get old on you third play through, and last not being able to skip scenes gets a little old also on you third playthough.

    But probably the worst thing is no carry over of weapons and upgrades once you complete the game, having to play the game 3 different times (once for each difficulty) and having to start over each time sucks.

    But I would still easily recommend the game, it's fun and has a lot of great one liners and moments, and arguably some of the best trophy names ever.

    My personal favorite "Now that's a big fucking gun".................AWESOME !!!!

    Not to hard no matter the difficulty. The kill specific trophies are fairly easy as well. But you do have to through it three times and that can weigh on you a bit, plus the red gems are a pain in the butt to collect near the end.

    Easy-nothing too difficult here. Only reasons i didn't vote very easy are 3 playthroughs is a pain and i don't enjoy unskipable cutscenes also Fleming boss takes forever on hard.

    2 - Easy. Went in thinking this would be moderate, but I can't justify that. Hard isn't even that hard thanks to cheap brutal moves (light shot + square), that give you iframes and save your ammo. The game is really fun though (well for the first 1 or 2 plays), but the unskippable cutscenes, sometimes long load times and mandatory 3 playthroughs for platinum makes it a bit tedious.

    Easy: A rather easy game that wasn't too challenging. I hated the fact i couldn't skip cut scenes on my second and third playthrough.
