Transformers Devastation Trophy Guide. Difficulty: ** A third-person hack and slash action game, based on the 1980’s animated Transformers TV show. The Platinum requires multiple playthroughs, including one on a hard difficult mode while achieving a high rank score.
Transformers: Devastation is a third-person hack and slash action game based on the Transformers franchise. Specifically, the characters and cartoon-like graphics are based on the 1980's Transformers animated TV series. Players control one of five Autobots, each using a variety of melee and long-ranged attacks, as well as possessing unique special abilities. Players use Credits earned in the game, to purchase new weapons and upgrades.
During a run in with the Decepticons in New York City, the Autobots learn that Megatron has an ancient ship in his possession with the ability to terraform planets to support Cybertronian life. Optimus Prime and the Autobots must stop Megatron's plan before all life on Earth is destroyed.
Transformers: Devastation received positive reviews with an average score of 77%, praised for its presentation, graphics, and nostalgic feel, though criticized by some for the game's short length and poor camera angles.
The Platinum is fairly average in terms of both difficulty and time required. The most challenging trophy will be for completing the game on Commander difficulty while achieving the highest rank. However, making back up saves on the PS+ Cloud or a USB HD will make this a little easier. The game also requires multiple playthroughs, and collectibles to find.
The Platinum can be earned in roughly 25-30 hours, depending on skills.
NOTE: The trophies on the PS4 have a separate list from those on the PS3.
Start things off by playing through the game with each of the five characters. There is a trophy for completing the game with Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Wheeljack, Sideswipe, and Grimlock. You can select any difficulty mode you like. However, keep in mind that the higher the difficulty, the more experience and credits you'll earn. Also, focus on upgrading whichever character you feel most comfortable with for your Commander playthrough later, rather than sharing the upgrades with all the characters.
Also, there are a number of collectibles to find. These include 30 Logos, 13 Kremzeeks, 22 Decepticon Flags, 14 Decepticon Spy Ops, and 12 Mystery Objects. So be sure to hunt for these during one of your five playthroughs, in order to unlock the No Stone Unturned trophy. You'll also need a sniper rifle in some situations, so be sure to bring one during your collectible hunt. If you're having trouble finding them, be sure to check out the collectible locations guides under our Links tab.
Finally, there are some attack and kill related trophies, as well. Try to unlock these during your five playthroughs, as well. If you miss some, you can always mop-up later.
After your five playthroughs, it's time for the most difficult part on your road to the Platinum. Your playthrough on Commander difficulty, while achieving an SS rank. You'll need to get bonus points for headshots and Reversal headshots, rush attacks, vehicle attacks, focus, paries, and status inflictions. This, in addition to completing the battles quickly with little damage. If you have access to the PS+ Cloud, or have a USB flash drive, you can backup your save, then reload if you make mistakes.
With that done, it's all downhill from there. Next, you'll need to beat all 50 challenge missions, in order to unlock both the Halfway There and All Clear trophies. While some of these can be tricky, they should feel quite easy after getting an SS rank on Commander difficulty.
Lastly, it's time to mop-up whatever you're missing. These might include the boss-related trophies, and of the kill or attack related trophies, and anything else you still need for the Platinum. Be sure to check out the Transformers Devastation trophy guide links under our Links tab to see what you still need and their requirements.
