Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater
Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater, is an action-adventure stealth game, first released on the PlayStation 2 in 2004, then re-released for the PlayStation 3 with trophy support as part of the Metal Gear Solid HD Collection in 2011.
Set in 1964 during the Cold War, FOX operative Naked Snake wanders through a Russian jungle in search of a defective Soviet weapons designer named Sokolov, who has been developing a nuclear-equipped tank named the Shagohod. Though assisted over the radio by Major Zero, Para-Medic, and The Boss, Snake's missions are rarely without twists and surprises, and this one is no exception.
The original Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater on the PlayStation 2 received outstanding reviews, with an average score of 91%, praised for its incredible details, beautiful visuals and cinematics, and complex but engaging plot.
Considering you can play the game on Very Easy mode, and that it's possible (if you're careful and follow a guide) to earn all the trophies in one playthrough, this game is significantly easier than its prequel, Sons of Liberty.
There are a vast number of collectibles to find, including several missable trophies, and at least one playthrough where you can't kill anyone. Follow one of the guides in our Links page to a T, and you should have yourself a new Platinum.
If you've already played this on the PlayStation 2, then you're at a great advantage to knowing where to go and how to defeat the bosses. If not, then don't fret. Just follow the walkthroughs and guides under our Links tab, and you'll be fine.
If you plan on earning this platinum in one playthrough, then you'll need two things: a guide which you'll have to follow strictly, and multiple saves in case you miss a missable trophy. There are no chapter selects, so missing a trophy means playing the game again.
Since there is no trophy related to the difficulty mode, you may as well select Very Easy, unless you simply like challenges. But playing on Very Easy also equips you with the EZ Gun, which holds an infinite ammount of tranquilizers. In order to unlock the Peace Walker trophy, you will need to play through the game without killing anyone, so the tranquilizer is a handy tool.
So, play the game from beginning to end, remember not to kill anyone, continuously save along the way, and follow the guides to find all the collectible and missable trophies, and you should have a new Platinum after 15-20 hours of gameplay.
