AFL Live is the 10th video game based on Australian Rules Football to be released on consoles. There is a new developer this time round, Big Ant Studios, who have done a great job creating the new platform from scratch. There are 5 game modes in which you will have to focus your time in in order to achieve all trophies, with most of you time being spent in Competition mode which includes the Season modes.
Specific breakdown is:
Footy Factory - 2 trophies
Online - 1 trophy
Toyota AFL Premiership Season - 9 trophies
NAB Cup Pre-Season - 1 trophy
Single Match - 25 trophies
Note most of the trophies in the single match can also be unlocked during the Season mode. There are only a few trophies that will actually require you to play in Single Match. Most of the Single Match trophies are very straight forward and you will unlock the without even trying, some although are lacking specific detail which this guide will hopefully solve.
Step 1 - Starting off
My first recommendation is to go straight to Training and read the Tutorials! This is pretty much essential, there are lots of controls in this game and they have a steep learning curve to master.
After you have read the tutorials, there is no doubt that you will still be pretty confused. You should play a few matches in Single Match to get an idea of how the game and controls work before starting a Season playthrough. For your first match it would be a good idea to choose a high rated team and play against the Gold Coast Suns. St.kilda, Geelong, Bulldogs and Collingwood are all the highest rated with 4.5/5. After selecting you Guernsey you will enter a screen where the Match Setting can be altered. Change the quarter length to either 3 or 5 minutes and make sure the difficulty is on Amateur.
Playing a few matches in this step you will most likely unlock "First Use" and hopefully "Winners (are Grinners)"
Step 2 - Amateur Toyota AFL Premiership season
Ok so after you have played a few matches you should be getting fairly familiar with the controls. You should now start a Season playthrough on Amateur with 3 minute quarters. Choose one of the better teams if you want to make it easier for yourself.
Note that you only have to play the games with your team that you selected and that you have to simulate the AI. The best way to do this is to play your teams match each round and then press to simulate all AI. If you simulate any of your teams matches you will not get any trophies!
During this step will unlock "Amateurs' Hour" and you should also try for "Chas", "Got the Wood on 'em" and "Set for September" as it will be much easier for you to get these on Amateur than the higher difficulties. You are also likely to have most of the random trophies by now, such as: "50 Metre Bomb", "Poster", "Slippery When Met" etc.
Step 3 - Professional Toyota AFL Premiership season
After your season you should be fairly competent with the controls and gameplay ready to start working on the more difficult trophies. Before jumping straight into Legend difficulty I would suggest to start a season on Professional and attempt to win 5 games in a row for the "Hot Streak" trophy.
*If you think you are good enough to win 5 games in a row on Legend difficulty you can skip this step and unlock this trophy during Step 4 or Step 5.
Step 4 - Legend NAB Cup Pre-Season
After winning 5 games in a row on Professional it's time to start working on the Legend trophies. The NAB Cup will be easier and shorter to win then a season as you only have to play 5 games, and the first two games will only have two terms rather than four. Winning the NAB Cup grand final will earn you the "Nabbed it" trophy.
Step 5 - Legend Toyota AFL Premiership Season
After the winning the NAB cup on Legend it's time for a full season on Legend. Be prepared for 50 hours to unlock this trophy, you will have to play a minimum of 25 games, each game being 2 hours long.
Before you start this each game make sure you have 2 hours free, possibly more depending on stoppages. When playing the Finals you must make sure you win the matches otherwise you may be eliminated. If you are about to lose you can quit the match via the pause menu and play the match again with no consequences.
Win the Grand Final without simulating any of you teams games or playing any of the AI's games and you will have unlocked "Legendary".
Step 6 - Online
If you have not managed to play 5 games online yet now is the time to do it, online is very fun, lag free and definitely the most fun part of the game. Play 5 games online and you will unlock "Online Player".
Step 7 - Clean up
By this stage you will have most of the trophies apart "Lifetime Lagger" which will take a decent amount of grinding to unlock. You will also finish off any remaining trophies you have left, such as; "Australian Made" "Chairman of the Board", "No 'I' in team".
