After the great feedback from the last article, we are now going to discuss the easiest of the hard games. These games are few and far between, but there are some games that are just not as hard as people think they are.
Here is a list of the games that I found much easier than the rating gave to it. All platinum percentages are obtained at www.yourgamercards.net
Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two
Current Platinum rating 1.43%
First off, there are no difficult trophies in this game. The issue with the game is missable trophies….lots of them. Between collecting all the pins, quests, picture spots, etc. the tasks can get quite daunting at times. Fortunately, more guides are being released and will help you on your journey. Here are the two guides that helped me.
I think the biggest issue in the game is finding the hidden items in each area. Sometimes knowing where pictures or collectibles will still make finding them impossible so keep a guide with you at all times. This game will take a minimum of 2 play-throughs but if you are diligent you will bag a nice rare platinum.
Tom Clancy’s H.A.W.X 2
Current Platinum rating at 2.19%
The only thing I can think of why this game is so rare is maybe the first game drove some people away. I can assure you the sequel is nowhere near as hard as the first title ( H.A.W.X. 1 Platinum has still eluded me) . For a game that takes about 20-25 hours, this is a nice rare platinum to add to your collection.
Before you attempt this game, I would try and make sure you have some friends to play with for the online trophies. There are many tasks you need to complete and having 1-2 friends with you will help you greatly. Other than that, you should have no issues. The campaign can be done on the easiest setting except for one mission which must be done on Expert. You can play this co-op though to make it easier but if you played any flying games in the past, this should not be any concern.
Cabela’s Dangerous Hunts 2011
Current Platinum rating of 3.34%
If you want to have an easy shot at the platinum, you will need a gun. You can do it with a controller but it will be making the game much more difficult than it needs to be. Top Shot Elite is preferred but I did it with the Sharpshooter. The following guide can help you as well.
Playing the story mode is about as easy as you can imagine it to be. Once you finish, you can start working on the galleries and this is where the challenges arise. With practice everything should come with time. The true challenge lies with the trophy for surviving for 7 minutes in Gallery 1. It took me about 10-15 tries to finish this trophy, but once you get it everything else is downhill from there. There is a great video by Shoe478 that shows when power-ups should be picked up and used.
NCAA Football 12
Current Platinum rating of 3.68%
As with most games that are a little older, I would get the online trophies as soon as possible. You never know when the servers might shut down so I am trying to warn you in advance.
If you played any of the other NCAA football games, this is no different. Most of the list even includes the same trophies. The fact that you can edit any player/team stats will make the game laughable if you choose it to be. You can even turn off penalties to make it even easier. There is nothing like sacking the QB when you are lined up offside 🙂
If you enjoy easy trophies and football, pick this up today. NCAA Football 13 is out so this game should be cheap.
I hope you enjoyed the article.
