Should i go for this platinum?

19 posts in this topic

So i'd like to platinum this game because it's free with ps plus. Most of the trophies are singleplayer based i like that. The game looks fun, but i heard some mixed feelings about this game. Is the singleplayer fun? Im not planning on playing a lot of multiplayer in this game. Just playing the multiplayer for the trophies

I saw that its alot more grindy then the first two, like a ridiculous grind like 100+ hours since they nerfed the xp gain from singleplayer content. Its a shame because I really enjoyed the first two games especially the first game.

This game has the best single or coop gameplay in the series, but PvZ GW2 has by far better unlockables and multiplayer. Still, the BfN's story when played with a friend is more than enough to justify your time.

The game is fun to play, but the problem is the leveling requirements. You basically need to prestige 20 characters 5 times. It's a long and frankly miserable grind that I got through watching Hulu on my laptop. Outside of that, the game and trophy list are great.

 

You can also grind in the single-player zones, and it is actually faster unless you are really good at MP. But you're looking at about 40 hours of pure grind after doing everything else.

I bought this game when it first came out and I really had a lot of fun with the Single Player Campaign. To each their own, of course, but running around Neighborville as a plant in 3rd person mode is just super chill. 😁 The towns/areas are very colorful and there's lots of collectables and places to explore. If I got bored of a gameplay style I would just switch to another Plant or Zombie :dunno: Hope you enjoy!

Since most of you guys are pretty positive about the singleplayer i'll give it a go. I have never really played any other pvz games so i have nothing to compare with so i'll hate things less fast. I don't really mind the grind so i thing i'll be fine. Thanks guys for the quick responds <3

unless you do the exploit which is like 30 hours of grinding

 

Is that the TTS trick using the Accessibility menu? My understanding was it was closer to 10 hours (which is still a massive ball ache).

That would still be a massive time saver

One of my most favorite games of all time.  Plat took me 150 hours without exploits, but we've got over 400 hours in now.  The multiplayer is an Overwatch clone, but it's done very well and I love the characters and maps.  The single player levels are great and very fateful to the plants vs zombies universe with their humor and creativity.  Also, everything can be played in local splitscreen which is relatively uncommon for shooters like this.

 

The main problem with the character grind is that you have to play with EVERY character and they have to each be levelled up A LOT.  They also limit you to a certain number of XP you can buy everyday with your coins.  I would definitely not recommend trying the plat grind in single player only because the XP is so limited, but custom games with bots on the max difficulty give the same as online matches I believe.  Expect 5 hours minimum grind for each of the 20 characters and some are far worse than the others.  They still have (shitty) exploits for the zombies, but I don't think there's a working exploit for the plants.

There is a glitch that you can get this trophy in less than two days, that sprinter used that glitch. It saves a lot of work.

It felt like ages. But yeah, I think the grinding would be 10ish hours, but you have to do everything else still, so that's where I got 30 hours from. 

 

The single player content is pretty bad as well imo. Not worth anyone's time.

That's really unfortunate, but thanks for the information. I guess we know why it was abandoned and also why it's part of PS+. It's a shame, because I really enjoyed GW2 (minus the time-walled rotating content).

Honestly I'm loving this game, reminds me a lot of TF2. Multiplayer is packed and it's not hard to rank up so far. 

Trophies are easy and the games a laugh. Seems like a no brainer for the plat.

Honestly, I'm currently addicted to this game. I think it's a lot of fun and going for the platinum has been fun, as well. Most of the trophies are super easy and the only ones I'm worried about are the PVP trophies because I'm terrible at PVP. I would recommend it honestly.
