5 <

It would be a 3 if my data wasn't corrupted and making me complete the game three times... 'Insanity Mode' was easy peasy compared to ME2..

5. Standard Platinum difficulty.

Beat the game on the hardest difficulty. Do some grinding for kills. Nothing majorly hard.

Retired trophy hunter. Gamer for life.

I give it a 4/10. Easier to plat than ME2. Can get all the trophies by playing SP/MP without the grind or working hard for it. Don't even need a trophy guide.

I voted a 6/10 as I found alot of the trophies easier to earn than in ME2, Insanity seemed a bit easier than ME2 apart from a few spots where I struggled, I don't think I died more than 5 times in some story missions (Grissom Academy and the N7 Cerberus Lab side mission gave me a bit of trouble though)

i was gonna vote a 3 because its way easier then mass effect 2 and even my friend who isnt a trophy hunter got the plat and hes an average gamer. but after 50 to 60 death on the last marauder my end vote is 5. i also denied a few times the fix thing after a freeze because a friend told me i could keep al my trophy stats. i know if the 5000 kills glitched i would have give up. or my insanity playthrough i couldnt see myself do it again after 23/25 (had a bad freeze then). lucky denying fixing works. 5000 kills is a serious grind i played many days online for fun before i started sp and i got 900 kills. it took me 2 full playthroughs (no skippings missions) on normal and insanity and 50 to 60 deatch where i each time killed al husks to get 4600 kills. the last 400 wont be bad. so im very close to plat.

thanks aeirou for signature

Nothing too difficult. Played both playthroughs as a Soldier, and I used the Black Widow 95% of the time. Got me through the game pretty good.
Only annoying part was Kai Leng on Insanity. Took me quite a few tries. The last Marauder took me four tries.

On Insanity I always took Liara with me, her Stasis and Singularity were invaluable. I changed between Garrus and James as my other squadmate.

Unfortunately I'm at my girlfriend's place for the weekend, so I have to wait until next monday before I can sync my new plat.

Currently playing:

on PS3:
on PS4:
on Vita: Final Fantasy X HD; Sly Cooper 2

4/10. Not difficult at all, just took some multiplayer grinding to get those 5K kills.

6/10 Average

Learned my lesson from ME2 and backed up my Save file every 6 hours or so (I lost a 66 hour Insanity Character on ME2 when the game crashed during a Load and Save screen, hated those multitask screens).

A hint: Disable Auto use of powers fro your companions because the Ai will most likely use some powers not fit for the situation or use them on targets that don't pose an immediate threat. This way you will always have the power you need when selecting a specific target in the Tactical mode.

The only real Insanity is on the very last sequence with the 3 Husks and the Marauder, you are bound to repeat the sequence over and over and over until you get lucky and complete it. It is not that you have to headshot the Marauder but just land every single shot even on the body, that will prevent it from killing you with a second shot, you can think of it as stunning it with every shot, if you miss a single one (usually the first) you are dead.

I started a new game and farmed kills to get to 5,000.

It's a bit time consuming but the game isn't honestly that hard. Even when you play as a stupid, underpowered soldier (totally regret not picking another class). You can just pretty much camp it out and spam with your assault rifle any time, occasionally you need to rush a bit but it isn't super difficult, ever really. Much easier than ME2. Gave it a 4/10.

My timezone is GMT+2, I live in Finland and speak finnish and english fluently. I generally play during the day and in the evening.
