Trophy Tuesday: Far Cry 3

Last Friday, I posted a blog about Far Cry 3 and how everyone should play it. Turns out, it's also a great game for trophies. Truth be told, there are very few annoying trophies in the game. I've actually enjoyed seeking out each one to see everything this game has to offer.

PS3trophies.org rates the game's platinum trophy difficulty a 3 out of 10 and in my experience, this is accurate. There are only two missable trophies and those are actually quite difficult to miss. As long as you liberate at least two outposts without being detected, you should be fine. Difficulty does not affect any of the trophies so feel free to play on any level you prefer.

There is also a series of co-op trophies, which you can actually obtain on your own if you have a 2nd controller. Although not ideal, you do have the option if you have an aversion to playing co-op or just don't have any friends.

Don't do it!
Platinum trophies usually fall into three different categories: attainable/terrible game, attainable/fun game, or unattainable. Luckily, Far Cry 3 falls squarely into the 2nd category, much like Sly Cooper. My one piece of advice for trophy hunters? Don't give into the terrible games! It's a never ending cycle and you'll likely regret it completely. There are way too many quality titles with attainable platinums to waste your time on games like Terminator Salvation or Kung Fu Panda...believe me, I know. I've platinumed them both. Don't hate. Just go play Far Cry 3 and add another platinum to your trophy room.
