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.

Silent Hill 3 HD

Silent Hill 3 HD is a survival horror game, originally released for the PlayStation 2 in 2003, and revamped in HD with trophy support for the PlayStaton 3 in 2012, along with new voice actors, as part of the Silent Hill HD Collection.

Seventeen years following the events of the original Silent Hill, Heather Mason, the baby girl given to Harry Mason to care for, is now a teenager growing up in Portland. However, it seems the cultist have returned, and wants to use Heather to give birth to their new god.

The original Silent Hill 3 received positive reviews, with an average score of 85%, praised for its creepy atmosphere, great graphics and sound, and for containing some good scares.

This game is far easier and less complicated than its predecessor, requiring only two and a half playthroughs, which can be done on either Easy or Medium mode.

As long as you're following the guides in our Links page, the Platinum can be earned in roughly 15 hours or so.

For your first playthrough, you can select Easy if you wish. However, you'll eventually need a total kill count of 333 enemies across your playthroughs to obtain the Heather Beam. Since Easy mode doesn't have as many enemies, we recommend playing on Medium, otherwise you may need to do another playthrough later on. During this playthrough, focus on getting the Normal ending for the I'm Normal I Promise trophy. You can also go for the Hoarder trophy, by finding at least 100 items, as well as the Wall Basher for finding the silencer. Hopefully, and particularly if you're playing on Normal mode, you should also unlock the They Look Like Monster To You trophy for defeating at least 75 enemies.

For your second playthrough, we highly recommend playing on Medium if you haven't already, in order to get those kills. This time around, we recommend going for the Possessed ending to unlock the It Was All In Your Head trophy by having over 4000 points by the end of the game. Kill as many enemies as possible. You can adjust the number of bullets you pick up from the Options screen, by hitting the L1, R1, L2, and R2 buttons simultaneously to access the Special options menu, and go into Bullet Adjustment. This makes things easier and won't affect the trophies. Also, if you haven't done so in your first playthrough, make sure you kill the final boss with a melee weapon, in order to obtain the infinite submachinegun.

For your third - and hopefully final - playthrough, you'll want to aim for the UFO ending for the Coolest Dad Ever trophy, which means having the Heather Beam and killing 30 enemies with it before reaching your apartment. You'll need the total kill count of 333 enemies in order to unlock the Heather Beam. If you haven't gotten it already, then unfortunately you'll need to do another playthrough. Luckily, however, once you do have the Heather Beam, getting the UFO ending doesn't take very long. Also, since the UFO ending makes for a short game, you should also go for the Makes My Head Hurt trophy on this run, which is for completing the game in only 2 saves or less. It should be noted that selecting Continue after dying will count as a save.

Silent Hill 2 HD

Silent Hill 2 HD is a survival horror game, originally released for the PlayStation 2 in 2001, and revamped in HD with trophy support for the PlayStation 3 in 2012, along with new voice actors, as part of the Silent Hill HD Collection.

Set in another area of the Silent Hill town from the prequel, James Sunderland visits the town after receiving a letter from his dead wife. James searches the town for his late wife, meeting other characters along the way, while learning about and attempting to survive the horrors surrounding him.

The original Silent Hill 2 was both a commercial and critical success, with an average score of 89%, praised for its graphics, atmosphere, story, and overall frightening fun.

Not a simple Platinum, as it's easy to make a mistake with some trophies. You'll need to play through the game at least six times, to collect all the different endings for each corresponding trophy. The most challenging, however, is the Who Needs A Gun trophy, as it requires a large, specific set of requirements - one of which is saving the game only two times during the entire playthrough. If you make a mistake, you'll need to start over.

This is not a game for anyone searching for a quick Platinum. Expect, minimum, 35 hours of gameplay, if you do some research and planning first. Otherwise, expect far more time required.

A few things to mention before we get started. First, if you pause the game by hitting Select, you will also be pausing the timer. This comes in handy when you want to check any walkthroughs while working on completing the game under the 3 hour limit. Also, after clearing the game the first time, you can hit R1 in the Options menu and add a higher number of bullets under the Bullet Adjustment. Finally, unlike most games which have a master file to track all your progress, Silent Hill 2 HD does not. This means, you'll need to load your results each time you start a new game, otherwise each ending won't be included in your total count.

Now, with that out of the way, we highly recommend simply playing through the first time without worrying about anything. Just enjoy the story and get familiar with the game itself. If you like, you can set the Riddle level on Easy and Action level on Normal. You should unlock a number of story related trophies during this process.

After that, go ahead and do Maria's scenario, which will earn you the Restless Dreams trophy.

Next, set the Action level to Hard and the Riddle to Normal, and begin your second playthrough. Focus on getting the second normal ending.

Then, adjust the Riddle level to Hard, and play for a third time, aiming on getting the third and final normal ending.

Now, you'll need to start working on the special endings. We began with the Rebirth ending, which requires you to find four items: the White Chrism, Book of Lost Memories, Unholy Grail, and the Book of Crimson Ceremony. This will earn you the Say Your Prayers trophy.

For your fifth playthrough, you can aim for the UFO ending, where you'll need to get the Blue Gem and use it in three different locations.

Your sixth and hopefully last playthrough will be for the Dog ending, which requires you to unlock the Observation Room on the third floor of the Alternate Lakeview Hotel using a collected Dog Key. However, you should also check the Who Needs A Gun trophy in the trophy guides in our Links page to see the requirements of acquiring the Green Hyper Spray. During your sixth playthrough, you should be aiming for completing these requirements at the same time. This is not easy, and remember you can only save the game twice, while keeping both the Action and Riddle level on Hard. Completing these requirements will award you with a 10 Big Star result.

Finally, after being awarded the 10 Big Star, load up the game one last time, head to the camper on Saul Street, and inside you'll find the Green Hyper Spray, thereby unlocking the Who Needs A Gun trophy, along with the Platinum.

Good luck!
