Madden NFL 12
Madden NFL 12 is an American football game licensed by the National Football League, and the 23rd installment in the Madden NFL series. New features include 25 new plays, a new collision system for more authentic tackling as well as 100 new tackle animations, AI enhancements, and mascots and cheerleaders have been added to opening presentations for teams who have them.
Madden NFL 12 received generally positive reviews with an average score of 78%, praised for its graphics and presentation, and overall fun, though criticized for lacking in added features compared to its predecessor.
This is actually a low 2-star difficulty, as Madden NFL 12 is arguably easier than its predecessor. At least 20 MUT games will need to be played, a year of Franchise, and lots of Play Now games. There are technically 5 online trophies, though these are MUT related and mainly involve collecting and trading cards.
Expect roughly 12-15 hours for the Platinum, depending on whether you have Madden NFL experience or are starting from scratch.
NOTE: Having 2 controllers is not necessary, but will make earning some Trophies much easier.
The game doesn't require much of a roadmap, but we'll break things down just to clarify what needs to be done. These steps can be done in any order. Also, if you wish to make things easier, you can head into Settings and adjust the sliders for Player Skill to 100, and the CPU Skill to 0 to make things easier, as well as Special Teams to 100 and Penalties to 0.
There are two trophies related to Superstar mode. The first is The Next Big Thing for simply creating an NFL Superstar. Then, take your created superstar to the training camp and play the event, which will unlock the We're Talking About Practice trophy.
There are also two Franchise mode related trophies. In the set-up menu, change Salary Cap to Off, and everything else to User. Then continuously select to sim the week and cut the number of players required. Do this until the pre-season is over, and you will unlock the Hey Can I Talk To You trophy. Then win an FA bidding for the Winning trophy.
There are five MUT mode related trophies, which are the more time-consuming ones. You will need to create a MUT team for the This One Is Easy trophy, make a MUT trade for the Wheel and Deal Trophy, and complete a total of 20 MUT games for both the Ultimate Veteran and MUT Maniac trophies. You will also need to build an 80 rated MUT team, which can either be done by trading cards, or earn coins for buying packs by either playing online games, playing single-player with 5 minute quarters and App-pro difficulty, or spending cash at the PlayStation Store.

Lastly, the rest is simply mopping-up whatever is left. Be sure to check out the Madden NFL 12 trophy guide links under our Links tab to see what you still need and their requirements.
