Platinum difficulty?

14 posts in this topic

The game has been sitting in my closet for a while and I'm not sure wether to go for it or not.

I really don't want to end up rage quitting the game with unearned trophies.

My stress intake is very low so I often break really easily when playing platformer-like games therefore I'm not sure if this is really for me.

 

Still didn't answer my question but okay I guess.

Played a long time ago on my xbox360, it's a hard platinum, 9/10 maybe. Definitely not a walk in the park.

This is easily an 8 or 9/10 for difficulty, because the Hard Mode and Babel Trophies are no joke but the Plat is very doable with practice and two controllers for the Babel trophies. I still need to go back and finsh this Platinum but am having trouble finding sufficient time to do so :(.

This is not a 8-9/10 difficulty game. Don’t let the other posts discourage you. I’d rate it in between 6-7/10. The only difficult trophies are the Babel trophies, but with 2 controllers it becomes much, much easier. (You need 2 controllers anyway because Babel stage 4 is glitched) As an example, I myself was stuck on Babel stage 3 Obelisk for many attempts until I finally hooked up a second controller and I did it first try. It’s just annoying controlling 2 at the same time, constantly pausing, but it gets the job done. The game is really good, you should go for it.

Maybe we look at games differently. If I'm not enjoying a game, or as in your case find it too stressful, I will just stop playing it. Even though they are both good games, I stopped playing Bloodborne and Monster Hunter World early on because I wasn't enjoying them.

 

You already own a copy, so you have nothing to lose by giving it a try, if you find it too stressful to complete then just let it go.

You can get through much of the game by watching YouTube videos and simply repeating what those guys did in the game itself.

 

The only issues you might have are the Babel stages which are one of those "Rogue-like" procedural generations, but practice and pattern recognition will serve you well.  As one of the above posters mentioned, you'll need two controllers to do Babel 4 -- as to get around how buggy it is in one-player -- but it's not terrible and one person can capably play both characters on separate controllers to get through it.

You know... it never crossed my mind to pause when switching to player 2... always just dropped my controller and picked the other one up... hehehe.

Anyway, it ain't easy as others have said due to Babel. Took me a fair bit to do it myself, doing 3 with two controllers and one oddly (second I think) on my own. As long as you know the tricks to advance you should crack it eventually but it won't be easy.

 

Rest is actually not that bad. The minigame is very long due to the amount of stages but no difficulty as you can just do what is done in the youtube videos out there. Hard mode can also be done this way but the boss levels can fail you as the boss could do something which doesn't happen in the video (final guy who changes blocks being the worse as he could change what is X block in the video to say a fragile block or something).

If you have a fight stick it can help a lot with the babel towers using 2 players. Use the home button to pause when you are not sure what blocks to move. That helped me get the platinum

How exactly does a fight stick help? I imagine it's because you can kind of use both controllers at once? Or something else?

For me it was easier using a fight stick and controller because if you use two controllers its slower having to put one down while picking the other up. I've seen a few players use this while doing some speed runs.

I haven't found it that stressful so far but i'm only on chapter 7 Normal. A lot of trial and error and most of my deaths are just dumb mistakes like forgetting that ice is slippery

Trouble and seriously hard trophies starts with Babel Tower, the rest is just a walk in the park. Campaign is also not a problem, pretty straightforward.

I wonder if last Babel Tower is still bugged in PS4 version and requires 2 controllers to finish.
