Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception
Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception is a third-person action adventure with puzzles to solve. The game continues the story of Nathan Drake, the Indy Jones like treasure hunter who climbs, leaps, and shoots his way through a variety of cities and countries, including Columbia, France and Syria - this time searching for the Lost City of Ubar. The story also includes flashbacks into Drake's childhood, revealing secrets of his past.
The game, like its predecessors, received outstanding reviews with an average score of 94% and won several Game of the Year awards. An engaging story, well-voiced actors, creative puzzles, and jaw-dropping graphics, Drake's Deception has been described by many critics as a "masterpiece."

If you've played any previous Uncharted games, then you have a good idea at how (not too) difficult this platinum can be, as the trophies are extremely similar. This involves a minimum of two playthroughs - one on the most difficult setting - finding collectibles, getting head-shots, making kills with certain weapons, etc.
Nothing that should take you more than 20 hours of gameplay.
NOTE: There are 2 online trophies. Though they are easy to acquire, they require an Online Pass. If you've purchased the game, than this pass is free. If you've rented the game or bought it used, chances are the free online pass' code has been used - in which case, you will have to pay for it.
If you've gotten Platinums on previous Uncharted games, then you know the routine.
If not, and if you're in a rush to get that platinum, then we recommend starting off on Hard mode and getting through the story. Along the way, you'll need to find various collectibles - which you can use the Walkthroughs in our Links page to help you out. There are also trophies for getting a number of kills with particular weapons, stealth attacks, head-shots, and a few various challenges. All these trophies are stackable, so don't worry if you can't collect them all during your first playthrough. All your stats will be saved in an overall collection.
Once you've completed Hard, the next mode - Crushing - will be unlocked. Again, just play through while trying to add more stealth kills and head shots to your stats, as well as other kills with certain weapons.
By now you should have nearly all the trophies. The rest is a simple clean-up, which you can use the chapter select as well as the Uncharted 3 Drake's Deception Trophy Guide links under our Links tab to help you. There are two online trophies, which simply require you to complete one Competitive and one Cooperative game.
