Shadows of the Damned
Shadows of the Damned is a third-person action title created through the collaboration between Shinji Mikami and Goichi Suda. Players control Garcia who battles demons, along with his sidekick Johnson, who acts as his weapon, torch, and motorcycle, while solving "darkness" puzzles and upgrading weapons.
Garcia Hotspur, a demon-hunter, returns home to find his girlfriend Paula being abducted by the Lord of Demons, named Fleming. Along with his sidekick Johnson, Garcia ventures into the demon world in pursuit of Fleming and to rescue Paula.
Shadows of the Damned received mainly positive reviews, with an average score of 78%, praised for its music, sound, challenging bosses, and overall fun, but criticized by some for its clunky design.
The game has three difficulty modes - easy, medium, and hard - with a trophy for completing each, which are not stackable. This means a minimum of three playthroughs are required. While the majority of the trophies are story-related, there are a number of kill-related trophies to unlock, and one for collecting all the red gems throughout the game. While these may be missable, having to play through the game three times means three chances to collect them all.
Overall, the game is no walk in the park, but not too difficult for an average player, either. Expect roughly 20-25 hours, depending on your skills.
Since completing the game's difficulty mode trophies are not stackable, you may as well begin on Lemon Hunter (Easy). Aside from unlocking the various story-related trophies along the way, this is also a good opportunity to follow one of the Red Gem guides under our Links tab, in order to unlock the High In Las Vegas trophy, as well as some of the kill-related trophies.
Once you've finished your first playthrough on Lemon Hunter, it's time to start Demon Hunter (Medium). The game has no New Game+, which means you'll be starting from scratch again. Also, if there were any trophies you missed during your first playthrough, then now would be the time to snatch them up.
Last, you can load up a new game on Legion Hunter (Hard). Hopefully by now the Legion Hunter trophy should be the only one you still need at this point. If not, try to mop-up any others during your third playthrough, in order to avoid having to do a fourth.
