Silent Hill: Downpour
Silent Hill: Downpour is a third-person survival horror game, and the seventh title in the Silent Hill game series. As in past installments, the game includes puzzle-solving and exploration, as well as battling enemies. The game supports 3D capabilities.
Murphy Pendleton is a prion inmate on his way to being transferred, when the vehicle crashes near Silent Hill - a rural, fictional town in America where parallel universes overlap one another. As he explores the town, Murphy soon realizes what horrors lurk within.
Silent Hill: Downpour received very widely mixed reviews, with an average score of 68%. Some online critics gave it high praise for its sound design, musical score, stylish design, and overall scare-packed fun. Other critics complained of its combat system and technical issues.
Silent Hill: Downpour is not particularly difficult for an average player, though can be a little time consuming since it requires three playthroughs in order to get all three different endings. If you're using a guide to help you find the collectibles, as well as get you through the puzzles, you shouldn't have too much trouble with this platinum.
Expect roughly 20-25 hours to get through three playthroughs and unlock the Platinum.
There are three different endings, which means three separate playthroughs are required for the Platinum. While there are a number of combinations to do this, we recommend the following:
First, play through the game on Hard difficulty. The reason we recommend this, is to work on your Good Karma playthrough, which also means not killing any monsters - and this is easiest on Hard mode, since it means avoiding combat and not accidentally killing anything. Don't worry about the sidequests, as you can do those later. For now, just focus on getting through the game, and unlocking the Puzzle Master trophy for completing hard puzzle difficulty, Capital Punishment for completing the game on Hard mode, and Good Behavior for completing the game without killing any monsters. Also, since you're avoiding killing anything, and if you're making the good decisions throughout the game, you can unlock the Ending C and Ending A trophies as well.
Next, you can bring the difficulty down to Easy, and start your second playthrough. Work on completing 13 available side quests (minus the "Digging Up the Past" quest), getting the kill-related trophies, open all safes to gather enough ammo for the Gun Control trophy, and for the sake of getting different endings, make bad choices in order to unlock Ending B and Ending D.
Hopefully at this point, you should have all the trophies except for Useless Trinkets and Ending E. If there are any others you are still missing, now's the time during your speed run through the game on whichever difficulty level you like. Perform the "Digging Up the Past" side quest to finally unlock the Useless Trinkets trophy. Doing so will also unlock Ending E at the end of the playthrough.
