Kung Fu Panda 2
Kung Fu Panda 2 is a third-person action platformer, based loosely on the DreamWorks animated film of the same name. The game was released in 2011 to coincide with the movie, yet does not host any of the same voice talents.
Taking place immediately following the events of the film, the villagers of the Valley of Peace are in celebration after the defeat of Lord Shen. However, Lord Shen's minions suddenly begin attacking the village, in a distraction for Po and the Furious Five, while two Komodo dragons attempt to take over Gongmen city.
Kung Fu Panda 2 received very mixed reviews, with an average score of 47%. While considered overall fun for children, it was criticized for poor graphics, game design, and an having the appearance of being rushed.
As you would expect from a game based on a children's animated film, this platinum is quick and painless. Over half of the trophies are story-related, while the others are either combat-related, or for finding all the collectibles.
As long as you follow one of the collectible guides under our Links tab, and unlock the combat-related trophies as soon as possible, you should have a new Platinum in about 5 hours.
There is no trophy for playing on any difficult modes, so just start up the game and begin. Your goal is to get all the trophies in one playthrough, as mopping-up can be time consuming in this case.
At the start, before selecting which Master to join with, start smashing the breakable items in the Training Hall. While it doesn't necessarily matter in which order you choose a master to follow, we found the quickest route was to start first with Croc, then Shifu, then Ox.
As you play through each of the three Master's levels, make sure you find every collectible available. There are a lot, and to avoid mistakes, we recommend following one of the walkthroughs or collectible guides under our Links tab.
Also, take note of the combat-related trophies, and try to unlock these as earliest as possible.
Once you defeat the final boss and clear the game, you will be able to continue in free roam. This will give you a chance to find any collectibles you missed. However, we found that sometimes the enemies respawned, and sometimes they didn't. In which case, if you missed some of the combat-related trophies, you may need to start a new game.
Otherwise, if all goes well, you should have a shiny new Platinum in just a few hours.
