The Five Most Surprisingly Difficult Trophies and Achievements

We've all heard the expression “Don’t judge a book by its cover”, but many gamers do just this. Naturally when a trophy list is leaked, many people start to judge the games’ difficulty. Several gamers thought Lost Planet 2’s hardest trophy was play 300 chapters, but it turned out those titles were quite insane. This is one of many games where the appearance was quite deceiving and it got me thinking what other games have surprisingly hard tasks. This of course led to my five most surprising or “troll” trophies out there (BlazBlue Continium Shift, BloodRayne Betrayal, Catherine, PS3, Streets of Rage 2, Vanquish, Xbox 360)

Score attack is a bitch. Though I had no problems with Ragna. But I did not beat it due to Unlimited Rachel.

She hits the entire screen. It did not end well at all!
Though I would add one more trophy!

"Hardcore" Dead Space 2
Proud that I got this trophy. But DAMN that was insane!

Demon Souls: king duran
Uncharted 2: lazarievich on crushing
MGS4: big boss mask (wasn't a trophy, but it counted as something within the game)
MotorStorm Pacific Rift: platinum trophy
Flow: getting through the game without eating anything
GT5: platinum trophy
Little Big Planet 2: Get through the game without dying
And the list goes on....

Old King Doran is easy if you cheese him and use his A.I. and aggro limit to backstab him constantly.

Dead space 2 was kinda hard, but mainly because of my time restraints. How could i possibly find stretches of 6+ hours to do this? To me, because of where my strengths lie, it is killzone 2 on elite & arkham asylumns challenge rooms. Though, i haven't finished arkham city yet. I imagine demon souls and dark souls were a bitch too. The majority are difficult because of time and boredom.

Demon Souls and Dark Souls arn't too bad at all. a higher percent beat Demon Souls than beat Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 on normal... What makes Demon Souls hard is the requirement of learning from your mistakes. Many people think "oh empty hall I'll rush it" then they get stabbed in the face by a knight then go online to bitch about it.

You have to remember that you can constantly level.
You could always play with other people.
There were several glitches found.

To put it into realistic terms. All data is from PSNprofiles.

Beat Demon Souls "40.5%"
Platinumed Demon Souls 3,454/20,222
Platinumed Vanquish 947/15,127

Vanquish and World at War = RAGE RAGE RAGE.
There are other games, but probably no where as "cheap" as the two I mentioned above.
admiralvic  +   1488d ago
Vanquish isn't cheap... it's just about knowing what to do. (and yes I've platinumed it)
Zoron007  +   1487d ago
Deja vu and the firefight one were a pain too because lagging out l, someone giving up or just finding the right people.
