Worth going for the platinum? And is it still possible to do without a headach?

14 posts in this topic

I never went for the platinum on the PS3 version of this game.

 

I kinda want to do all 3 of the Tomb Raider New Games in Order.

 

Is this platinum still kinda possible and is it worth the effort?

It is still possible but I would say that it isn't worth it! Having to play the multiplayer for about 20 hours alone to grind to level 50 is NOT worth it.

 

If you want to play the trilogy and want the story from the first one but don't want to have an unfinished game on your profile, play it on another account and then continue with number 2.

Unless you're really determine to platinum the entire trilogy then it's really not worth the time and energy; this is coming from someone who did both the ps3 and ps4 versions (only because I vastly enjoyed the campaign).

 

If you really want to tackle it then I suggest boosting some of the trophies with a group since the mp is practically dead at this stage. The rest can be solo'ed but you'll have an excessive grind ahead of you, that's where netflix comes in handy for the most part.

I used four consoles (a couple borrowed) to grind some of these trophies, then spent 15-20 hours to grind to Level 60 and get all the scrap I needed.... both on PS3 and PS4. IF you're willing to put in the time to get some decently rare plats then sure, it's probably worth it, but they'll be sitting unfinished in my list for quite a while to come yet.

Main story can be done in 1 day with the help of a guide to ensure all collectibles ect are picked up without much need for back tracking. Your probably looking at around 3 days to cover the online and that's with boosting everything minus the rank 60 which can be done solo....earphones in, music on and go for it. You got this!!

The first part of the Reboot series was the worst. I like Rise and Shadow, but Part 1 was not fun in single player as well. Just the constant camera shake while running meant that I would not continue to play it. Fortunately, that didn't exist in the next few parts. I'm also a big fan of multiplayer games, but I didn't enjoy the MP part in this game.

 

So if you like hard work and use games not to play but as work then give it a try.

The online from the first is quite tiresome, reaching lv 50 takes forever, and you also have to worry about the Chatterbox Trophy, which can be glitchy and you may need to replay the game all over again.

 

Shadow is definitely the most doable, so if you're able to enjoy that one, go for the platinium

I liked the rebooted trilogy overall, but I think the first one is the weakest.

 

Not a bad game by any stretch, but comparatively it was the one where they were still finding their feet.

 

Mechanically they only get better across the trilogy, but story-wise, they get a bit more ridiculous each time, so Rise (the second game) is probably the sweet spot in terms of overall game quality. It also happens to feature no Competetive MP (a plus, as the first one's MP was pretty bare-bones and not a great time), but has a very robust and fun Cooperative 2 player survival mode. 

 

I'd still recommend the whole trilogy though - it's a fun ride, and a surprisingly modern feeling set of games, considering the long established roots of the franchise, and they did a really admirable job turning Lara from a 'big-boobs and guns' cypher to a somewhat rounded character.

After i got the platinum trophy on PS4 and all achievements on Steam, is not worth it, i love the single player but the multiplayer is a lot of boring grind, you need to put 15 hours just to get 2 trophies and also you need at least 4 people for the other one, but i know i will probably try to get the platinum trophy even on PS3...

it's pretty standard PS3 gen multiplayer stuff, you need to boost most of the trophies and do a 15-20 hour grind for the max level trophies, nothing too crazy, it's worth it IMO

I would say try the mp on a alt account and see if you like it but you'll probably don't, and even if you do it's probably dead by now.

 

Imho the trilogy platinums are not worth it, the first one cause of mp, Rise has a really weird second walkthrough with cards acting as modifiers and Shadow climbing mechanics were a nightmare for me even on my first playthrough, and you're supposed to beat it only saving at checkpoints.

 

I liked the trilogy despite the plats and the first game was my favourite followed by Rise, hated many things in Shadow though.

Servers are unstable and you need a group for ranked match in order to get the related trophy on Tomb Raider Definitive edition.Also on Rise servers sucks too.I can't do co-o with a friend and i need to find another player in order to get 100% completition on Rise.The most annoying trophy is to grind mp level in order to unlock skin and do weapons upgrade on definitive edition.Quit out works for the ranked matches on Definitive.Also you can boost exp on Definitive Edition trading kills with a friend but be careful to set a low score match on option otherwise there is a possibility game will crash and lost all your progress.Even if i don't own the dlc i loved Shadow.The only difficult trophy will be the difficulty related trophy but if you even exeperience with Uncharted or The Last of Us it won't be a problem.

You will need at least 3 other people to get the ranked win trophy. Requires 4 people to start the match. But everything else can be done with either 1 or 2 other people in private matches. You need at least 2 other people to get the blow 2 people up with one explosion trophy. Good luck if you go for the platinum, hitting level 60 is a massive grind.

It's possible but a bit of a grind in multiplayer, even if you boost it and use the Solo Exploit.

 

Shame, cause I think the single player stuff is fun to complete.
