Adam's Venture: Origins has a game style identical to portions of Tomb Raider and Uncharted. One very notable difference however is this game lacks any sort of combat or weapons. It is single player only and there is no multiplayer capability. Even though this is a PS4 game it has graphics comparable with first-gen PS3 games. In other words, the graphics are not good (comparably) at the time this game was released. The game play is also much more clunky than we are used to at this point.
With that said, I found this game to be quite enjoyable even though the story was extremely clichéd. The reality is, this game will only take you 2-4 hours to complete so you will not really be playing it for that long. It is with this duration that I found it fun. I should also mention that this game is extremely easy so you will almost certainly want this title if you are a platinum trophy hunter. If any of you trophy hunters out there are looking for a "fastest platinum" title, this is a good choice because you can complete it in under 2 hours if you know what you are doing and never have to reload a checkpoint.
This game does not have a difficulty setting. The only way you can die is if you get spotted by a guard during a section where you cannot be seen or if you fall from a great height. In this context a great height pretty much means where you cannot see the ground because I easily fell 60 feet at one point with no problem.
Auto-save is used to track your progress but the game also employs the ability to load from a previous checkpoint (and these are frequent) or restart an entire Episode. The story is broken down into 20 Episodes. There are no missable trophies because all Episodes may be replayed through the "Chapter Select" concept that this game has.
The game is extremely story driven and even if you know where to go next, you frequently have to wait for a certain cut scene or conversation option to occur before you can proceed. For example, I had only 1 game glitch while I was playing. At a certain point in the story, one of the game characters was supposed to say a certain line and then walk out of the area. Well, he walked out of the area but never said his line. As a result, I was unable to interact with the object that I needed to. With the frequent checkpoints, I was able to reload the last checkpoint and get right back to where I was in just a couple of minutes. He said his line and I could proceed.
13 of the 15 trophies are story related so you could almost get the platinum without even trying. Even though I put a decent amount of information within the story-related trophy descriptions, I doubt you will need to use them that much (if at all). The other 2 trophies do require you to do specific actions but these are also extremely simple. Since there is the ability to replay any Episode, there are no missable trophies.
The walk-through below will list the best order to get all of the trophies in a single playthrough.
Step 1: Single Playthrough
Play through the story
The game begins with two optional trophies so refer to their descriptions to unlock:
Episode 1 (Oxford) - Heavy sleeper
Episode 1 (Oxford) - Globetrotter (Perform 2 of the 3 requirements for unlocking)
You will then unlock these story trophies:
Episode 1 (Oxford) - Dominus Illuminatio Mea
Episode 2 (Oxford Dungeon) - All roads lead to Luz
Episode 3 (Route de Luz, 1925) - Pairing up
Finish out the 3rd requirement to unlock this optional trophy:
Episode 5 (Templar Church, Luz) - Globetrotter
Complete the game, unlocking these story trophies:
Episode 5 (Templar Church, Luz) - Onwards, to paradise!
Episode 9 (Leap of Faith) - Leap of faith
Episode 12 (Hold On To Your Belief) - Adam may yet surprise you!
Episode 13 (Eden) - Knock knock...
Episode 14 (Airport) - Jailbreaker
Episode 15 (Jerusalem) - Kill two stones with one bird
Episode 18 (Solomon's Throne Room) - Adding a bit of wisdom
Episode 19 (Mine I) - Nerves of steel
Episode 20 (Mine II) - It all ends with a bang
Step 2: Cleanup
Replay any episodes to finish up your trophies.
All episodes can be replayed whenever you want (after they are initially unlocked).
Once all individual trophies are out of the way, the Hero of the day trophy will be yours.
