    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 It was almost a moderate difficulty plat but the fact I got it in 2 days still makes it a easy plat. The game does require 2 playthroughs and the one on hard is actually easy and can be done in 4-6hrs. There are lots of challenges but most are easy though the freefall challenges took several attempts. The one trophy that was actually tough was Mighty Marvel Booster as you have do a freefall section going fast through the whole freefall which is a lot of trial and error. Overall it borderline moderate but still a fast plat

    I voted easy on this because overall it was easy would you believe.the only difficult thing really would be the web of challenges and even then,they arent that bad.the hard playthrough was a dodle,especially if you upgraded everything first.i was actually expecting hard to be at least a challenge but it wasnt,even without being able to get collectables.defiantely a fast plat,as omni says and imo,definately worth the money if you loved shattered dimensions.

    This was a really fun game. However, for being spiderman I felt pretty restricted on the web slinging fun, haha. The overall difficulty is pretty high at first (especially the bosses). Once you get your sea legs though, it's really not bad at all. You can not button mash your way through this game! Develop a strategy and take down the enemies methodically. By the time you finish your Normal difficulty playthrough, you should have most of the upgrades purchased (making your next playthrough on Hard difficulty that much easier).

    The collectibles added to the game as they doubled as "currency" to purchase combat moves/upgrades.

    The Web Challenges (namely the Freefall events) however, really gave me a run for my money I attempted the damn freefall events countless times with little to no success. The game actually started freezing my system when going to Restart the event; I had to quit back to the XMB and restart the game after every failed attempt I seriously almost walked away from this game for a while. I'm not sure what it was that changed but, I blazed through all of the freefall events in 1 short sitting, haha. It must have been divine intervention

    I gave this an Easy. It wasn't time-consuming; everything un-related to the Web of Challenges was received during the first run-through on Normal, after which I was planning on giving up. The control scheme was frustrating compared to the options at hand in Shattered Dimensions and I was still pissed off at the camera and having to mash the square or triangle button and little else. However, I decided not to quit and did all the Web of Challenges in less than 2 hours, which nets you pretty much everything else--the last of the Golden Spiders, XP to max out, the bonus suits, etc. After that, Hard run was a joke... I got it done in less than three hours. Overall, the game was about 10 or so hours of gameplay, and frustrations aside in regards to me just not getting over the fact it's not on par with its predecessor, it's not a bad game (or a difficult one), just redundant after awhile.

    3-moderate. Not hard to play, even on hard difficulty if you've unlocked every upgrades and know which fights to dodge, but very very time consuming, and annoying at some points.
