DC Universe Online
DC Universe Online is a third-person MMORPG which takes place in the world of Detective Comics' superheroes.
In the future of a war-torn Metropolis after a mighty battle between the superheroes and villains, Lex Luthor stands victorious - only to witness Brainiac's war fleet invade Earth. Without any superheroes left to overtake him, the alien invasion would be victorious. Lex Luthor travels back in time to warn the superheroes of Brainiac's plan. He also returned with stolen "exobytes" from the mothership - nanobot-sized devices which can host people, giving them extraordinary powers. The Justice League, as well as the villains, will train and mentor these new superheroes in order to stop Brainiac's plan of invasion.
After selecting a server, the player makes their costume, chooses their powers, selects either one of six superheroes/villains as a mentor, then heads into the DC Universe. After managing to escape Brainiac's ship, you will be given multiple quests, earning experience points, going up in levels, and collecting/buying/trading weapons and armor.

Not a whole lot of skill is required for this platinum. For the most part, this game is a button-masher. There are only 13 trophies to be collected for the platinum, most of which require you to simply reach level 30 with your character.
So why a 3-star rating? Time consumption! Expect over 100 hours of gameplay - though it varies, depending on whether you're working on your own or teaming up with others to accomplish missions.
Also, depending on when you're reading this, you may or may not be paying monthly fees - which means this platinum may be an expensive one, as well.
Originally, after buying the game, you'll have one free month of subscription, before having to shell out $14.95 a month to continue playing on the DC Universe Online server. Unless you play this game endlessly with little sleep, it may be difficult to collect the platinum before the free month is over, so be prepared to spend money.
Update: Due to a lack of players, as of November 1st 2011, DC Universe Online no longer has monthly fees!
The trophies are not difficult, just time consuming. The only trophy which stands out as a "challenge" is Platinum Race, which requires you to run through a series of rings with an excellent time record. These races are marked in purple, and often appear right in front of the police stations. These races are not difficult, and so far everyone here at Trophy Hunter managed to collect the trophy on their first try, while only at a level-2 character.
All the other trophies are linked to your level progress with your character. There are 6 possible mentors, so 6 trophies for each, reaching level 30. There are three types of movement you select for your character - acrobat, running speed and flying - and so three corresponding trophies, also requiring a level 30. Then there are three possible roles - tank, controller and healer - each with a trophy for reaching only level 10. And that's it.
You will have to reach Level 30 with 6 different characters, one for each mentor. Make sure, during those six playthroughs, you've chosen each of the three movement types at least once, and each of the roles at least once.
Overall, you probably won't need any guides for this game, since all the missions are self-explanatory and provide an arrow to show where to go. But here are some links just in case:
