Sonic Unleashed Trophy Guide. Difficulty: *** A platformer and part of the Sonic series, combining behind-the-back third-person and 2D side-scrolling. The Platinum is both somewhat time consuming, as well as challenging with clearing the Hot Dog missions.
Sonic Unleashed is a platformer which combines behind-the-back third-person with 2D side-scrolling, and is part of the Sonic the Hedgehog series. Gameplay switches between fast-paced levels during daytime, and slower action-based during night-time where Sonic transforms into a Werehog. the setting takes place on different continents inspired by real-world locations.
Doctor Eggman has drained the power of the Chaos Emeralds in order to unleash a powerful creature known as Dark Gaia. The side effects of the drained Emeralds has caused Sonic to transform into a Werehog each night. Sonic must find a way to stop Doctor Eggman and the Dark Gaia, and restore the power of the Chaos Emeralds.
Sonic Unleashed received mixed reviews with an average score of 58%, praised for its beautiful graphics and environments, though criticized for the Werehog concept and night-time segments for slowing down the gameplay with too much combat.
This is a high 3-star rating, due to the difficulty in some of the challenges required, as well as a few time-consuming trophies. While a good chunk of the trophies shouldn't pose too much difficulty for average players, clearing all the Hot Dog missions will truly test your gaming skills, and requires much trial and error for completion. A few other trophies, such as for talking with all the townspeople or collecting all 400 medals, will add time to your gaming.
Expect roughly 40-50 hours of gameplay, though it heavily depends on your skills.
Start by simply playing through the Story mode. There are no missable trophies to worry about, so if you like, you can just enjoy the game from start to finish. If you want to make things easier for future play, try to upgrade your abilities as much as you can. Also, if you want to avoid more grinding later on, you can try to get all the medals as well.
Once that's finished, and if you haven't already, it's time to fully upgrade all your abilities. Make sure this is done before moving onto the Hot Dog missions.
Okay, time to turn to the Hot Dog missions, where you must complete all of them in each location. This is what generally makes or breaks getting the Platinum for most players, as they are very difficult and even frustrating. Remain patient and keep trying. Through trial and error, you'll eventually clear them. Be sure to check out the Sonic Unleashed trophy guide links for tips on how to beat these, under our Links tab.
If you managed to complete them, then congratulations! It's all downhill from here. Finally, just mop-up the remaining trophies you still may be missing. This may include collecting all the Medals, all the food, souvenirs, and a few others if you haven't done so already. Again, check out the Sonic Unleashed trophy guide links under our Links tab to see what you're missing and their requirements.
