Dark Void is a third-person action shooter, which mixes on-ground and in-air combat, and makes use of a "vertical cover system" as well as a standard one. Players can upgrade through the use of Tech points at a shop between missions.
Taking place before World War II, William Augustus Grey is a cargo pilot who flies through the Bermuda Triangle, warping him to another world. Known as the 'Void,' Will meets up and joins a human race known as the Survivors, and uses advanced technology to defeat an alien race called the Watchers while searching for a way to escape the Void.
Dark Void received lukewarm reviews, with an average score of 62%, praised for its innovative jet pack and overall fun, but generally considered too short and generic in many areas.
Not a particularly difficult game, even when playing on Hardcore mode. Many trophies are standard for these types of action titles, such as weapon upgrades, kill-related, and a few collectibles, which can be mopped-up through a chapter select. While still warranting a 2-star rating, as the flying areas can be tricky, the game is significantly easier than the Uncharted series, and much shorter than Assassin's Creed II.
Overall, expect around 15 hours of gameplay on this one, depending on your skills.
The quickest way to that Platinum is to select Hardcore difficulty and play from beginning to end. Hardcore is not all that challenging, so long as you are patient and careful during the flying stages, and are a relatively good shot. Along the way, to save yourself time later, you can follow a walkthrough and collect journals for the Bookworm trophy, and use tech points to upgrade your jet pack and weapons.
Once you've completed your Hardcore playthrough, you can then change the difficulty to Casual and use the Chapter Select to mop-up any trophies you still require. Check out the trophy guides in our Links page for further details. This may include finding any missing journals, and fully upgrading your equipment for the Grease Monkey trophy through farming.
