Cursed Crusade Trophy Guide. Difficulty: ** Two playthroughs required, one on Nightmare difficulty, and collectibles to find.
The Cursed Crusade is a third-person action-adventure set during the Fourth Crusade in the early 13th Century. The game features both co-op play, and single-player in which the character's partner is controlled by AI. Players battle enemies in a hack n' slash style with a sword, as well as with other weapons that can be found and picked up along the way. Players also use the Curse ability, which allows for stronger moves and quicker movements.
Denz de Bayle is on a quest to find his father, who left Syria and never returned during the Third Crusade. Paired with a Spanish mercenary named Esteban Noviembre, he journeys across Europe in order to find his father, reclaim his family's castle, and remove the curse that has been placed on him.
The Cursed Crusade received rather poor reviews with an average score of 46%, praised by some for its fun moments, though criticized for its repetitive and boring gameplay, shallow combat system, and technical bugs.
The Cursed Crusade is a low 2-star rating. Two playthroughs are required, one on Nightmare mode which can have a few frustrating sections, but for the most part the game is average in terms of difficulty, and not particularly long.
Expect roughly 20-25 hours of gameplay for the Platinum trophy.
You'll first want to play through on Crusader difficulty in order to unlock Nightmare. In order to make things quicker and easier, you may wish to unlock as many as the miscellaneous trophies during your first playthrough. This includes finding all 26 Blood Crucifixes for both the Here's Your Trophy and the Cross The Crosses trophies, finding all 103 coffers for the Gold Before Glory trophy, and picking up all the different weapons for the Master of War trophy. Check out the Cursed Crusade trophy guide links under our Links tab for collectible guides.
After that, you should have unlocked Nightmare difficulty. While this can prove frustrating at parts, Nightmare difficulty isn't too hard, as all your stats from the previous game will carry over. Simply get through the game, and pick up any missed trophies along the way.
Finally, if you haven't yet unlocked the Platinum trophy after completing your Nightmare playthrough, use the Chapter Select to mop-up anything you missed.
