This game is pretty easy and won’t take you very long. You can get the platinum and all 11 other trophies in an afternoon. There is an option to play through the game in offline co-op, but it’s not necessary. The game is easy enough as it is. You’ll only need one play through. Hard mode is available from the beginning, and the trophy for beating the game on Medium will unlock if beat it on Hard. Turning down the sensitivity of the Right stick to about 30-40% helps with aiming, especially in the vehicle sequences. Since nine of the trophies are awarded for completing chapters, all of the trophies are basically impossible to miss. If for some reason you miss one, there is a chapter select in the main menu.

Here are some things to remember for this game. Use cover in every fight. If you’re out in the open for too long, you won’t last for very long. If you can move around to different cover spots, do so. The machines will lose track of you making them easier to take out. If you can, try and flank them. Some of the enemy Terminators can only be taken out when you’re behind them. If you’re playing by yourself, your allies won’t help you much (if at all), so be prepared to take down all of them yourself. Pay attention to the movements of the machines that you’re fighting. They move in pretty predictable patterns.

There isn’t a whole lot of variety to the enemies that you’ll face. The flying enemies are Wasps. One shotgun blast will take them out. On the ground, you’ll face T-7’s (spiders) and T-600’s (the Terminator that everyone will recognize). The T-7’s you have to get around behind to destroy them. The T-600’s…well good luck. They’re tough. They’ll take grenades, pipe bombs, or rockets to destroy. Apparently, their weakest point is in the chest, but they could have fooled me. If all you have is an assault rifle, find some other weapon. You won’t do nearly enough damage to take them out. You’ll also encounter some motorcycle-like Terminators in one vehicle sequence, but you have a rocket launcher, so they’re not much to worry about.

Since this isn't the typical game with a lot of trophies to explain, I'll give some tips on how to make it through each chapter. A few of the levels have frustrating parts to them. Just remember to stay in cover, move through the cover points, and flank when you can.


Determinated
Collect all other Trophies


L.A. 2016
Complete Chapter 1 – L.A. 2016 on any difficulty.
There’s nothing too difficult about this chapter. Make sure that you don’t expose yourself too much when you’re firing rockets at the HK. The Wasps will do some heavy damage to you if you’re in the open for too long. You’ll get this trophy a few minutes after you start playing the game.

Thank Heaven
Complete Chapter 2 – Thank Heaven on any difficulty
This chapter sort of begins with a chase sequence through LA. Fire in bursts to take out the Wasps being careful not to overheat your gun. When you get into the tunnel, take out the van first, then worry about the Wasps.

New Acquaintances
Complete Chapter 3 – New Acquaintances on any difficulty.
The end of this level could cause you some problems. It’s really not that bad once you figure out where the best cover spot is. When you face the first T-600, run up the stairs and let someone go before you so you don’t get hit. There will be an L-shaped cover spot on this floor that is directly across from the stairs. A guy behind you will be making pipe bombs that you can throw at the three T-600’s. Take them out with a combination of one or two pipe bombs and some gunfire at their chest. Destroy the one that is across from you first. Then finish off the two that everyone else is shooting at. You’ll go into another room that has a few more. Run to the back of the room, get some more pipe bombs, and take them out as they come.

The Sights
Complete Chapter 4 – The Sights on any difficulty.
Your objective is to make it onto the roof of a nearby building. The most difficult part you’ll face is when you’re up against two T-600’s. Stay by the steps up and take out the first one. When the second one is near you, run over and take cover behind the curved wall. Pop up and shoot at it when the Terminator is shooting at your allies. Just remember to use cover effectively, aim for the upper chest, and use your grenades and pipe bombs when it gets in close.

Underground
Complete Chapter 5 – Underground on any difficulty.
You’ll have a couple of vehicle sequences again this level, but they’re not very difficult. One of them you get a rocket launcher for, so it’s not very hard. The toughest part is when you have to keep the machines busy while Barnes checks the explosive trap he set. There are a couple of checkpoints in between waves of Terminators. Just keep moving from one side to the other. Use the rocket launcher and the grenade launcher for quick kills. By the way, if you quit after one of the checkpoints and reload, all of the weapons will respawn and you’ll be at max ammo again.

Into the Wild
Complete Chapter 6 – Into the Wild on any difficulty.
There’s nothing difficult here and it's a pretty short level. Keep using cover. Use your grenades wisely. Use the grenade launcher on the T-600’s.

Angie
Complete Chapter 7 – Angie on any difficulty.
There are a couple of spots where you’ll have to survive waves of T-7’s and T-600’s with a few Wasps thrown in too. Use the same strategy that you’ve used the entire game, and you’ll be fine. This chapter ends with another vehicle section, but this time you’re in control of a giant Terminator.

Every Life is Sacred
Complete Chapter 8 – Every Life is Sacred on any difficulty.
There’s not too much to this level. Just survive more waves of T-7’s and T-600’s. This level is pretty short and as long as you keep using cover, you’ll have no problems.

For the Resistance
Complete Chapter 9 – For the Resistance on any difficulty.
The first room can be tough. You have two T-7’s and two T-600’s followed by a wave of three T-600’s. Amazingly, that’s the easy part. The hard part about it is dealing with the games crappy frame rate and significant slowdown during this part. After this room, you’ll have another room to fight a few Wasps, and then you’ll get to the control room. After that, you have a fight with six or seven T-600’s. Use your rocket launcher and grenade launcher and you’ll make it through no problem. After that, the rest is cake walk.

Seasoned Commander
Complete the game – Become a Commander on Medium difficulty.
Self explanatory. This unlocks if you complete the game on Hard.

Veteran Commander
Complete the game – Become a Commander on Hard difficulty.
Self explanatory. Completing the game on Hard also gives you the trophy for completing the game on Medium.

LOL, yeah it's definatly a rent title! I won't even be starting it until later today or tomorrow, you'll already have the plat in this and have probably started another game by then, if the approx 6 hour completion time is accurate!

i'm on chapter 3, this game is a mess. No way I can complete it in 1 sitting, rented for a week, so maybe I'll do 2 chapters per sitting.
