Alienation Trophy Guide. Difficulty: ** A top-down shoot ’em up, using twin-stick controls to blast away invading aliens. Three playthroughs are required, one on Hardcore mode. The majority of the trophies are more grinding than difficult.
Alienation is a top-down shoot 'em up, similar in style to the 2010 Dead Nation by the same developers. Players select from three different characters, each with their own unique abilities, firing against swarms of aliens while upgrading weapons through collectibles. The game can be played ether solo or online co-op with up to four players.
Aliens have invaded Earth, and most of humanity has either died or been mutated. Soldiers from a military group known as UNX are the planet's only hope to stop humanity from becoming extinct.
Alienation received positive reviews with an average score of 79%, praised for its twin-stick shooting mechanics, online co-op play, and overall excitement and fun, though criticized for its lack in variety of weapons and for not possessing local co-op play.
Three full playthroughs are required, one of which on Hardcore mode. While Hardcore mode is obviously the most tricky aspect of the game, the remaining trophies are more time-consuming than difficult, as you'll need to do plenty of grinding.
Expect roughly 55-65 hours for the Platinum.
You'll need to do three full playthroughs, one with each of the three characters, with your last playthrough on Hardcore mode. We recommend saving the Bio-Specialist for the Hardcore run, as he has the ability to heal himself. But the choice is yours.
During your first playthrough, select whichever character you want. You'll be unlocking all the story-related trophies. We also recommend going for any other miscellaneous ones that don't involve a lot of grinding. Check out the Alienation trophy guide links under our Links tab for more details.
For your second playthrough, choose a different character, and aim for whatever miscellaneous trophies you're still missing.
Now, it's time for the Hardcore playthrough with your remaining character, which will unlock the I Fear Everything trophy, as well as whichever character-related trophy you're missing. On this mode, if you die, you lose your save file and will need to start all over at Level 1. If you prefer to play this co-op, check out the Boosting Forums under our Links tab.
With that out of the way, the rest is all grinding. Again, check out the Alienation trophy guide links under our Links tab to see what other miscellaneous trophies you may still be needing, and their requirements.
