Started on Kickstarter and funded by fans, Harmonix revives a cult classic again with Amplitude (2016)! This game was originally on the PS2 but has made its way back on this PS4 with a brand new song list, new modes and a new, sheer look. Fans of old and new will crank up these jams as they mix along the neural pathways of an unconscious patient that needs to be revived in order to realize her true meaning...and yes, that's the story behind the campaign. Blast your way to victory with Amplitude!
Although Amplitude has a short list of trophies, the list isn't easy. Most of the trophies you will obtain just by playing the game and learning the songs. Others, you'll have to go out of your way to get them. There are two major trophies that will either make or break the game for you. One is beating campaign under certain conditions and the other is beating every song on Super Mode. See the Trophy Guide for more details.
Step 1 - Complete Campaign on any difficulty and unlock FreQ Mode
*Skip this step if you're ready to play on Expert difficulty*
The Campaign in Amplitude is fairly short, but becomes more challenging as you move up in difficulty. Beginners are advised to play through on the lower difficulties and even practice on songs you're stuck on in Quickplay (Since the games offers no Practice Mode). Campaign has 3 regions, 5 songs per region, for a total of 15 songs. However, 3 are Bonus Songs and are only accessible after obtaining 10 Score Bars in each region. Your goal this time is to play through the Campaign, unlocking any miscellaneous trophies as you go and complete it. It doesn't matter if you don't unlock the Bonus Songs. Just make it to the end of Campaign. You can retry/fail as many times as you like. Also, watch out for the end of Dalatecht. It's tricky! You may unlock Comprehensive Treatment during this run. If not, it will be unlocked after Step 2.
By the end of this run, you should unlock:
- Pathway Restored
- Emergency Care
- Accelerated Response
Step 2 - Complete a full 15 song Campaign on Expert & unlock Super Difficulty
*Skip this step if you're ready for the next step*
This run is a bit tougher. Restart Campaign and choose Expert difficulty. This time, you MUST access and clear all of the bonus songs. To do that, you'll need 10 score bars per region. Score bars increase depending on your score in a song. Continuously streaking and using Multiply nanotech boosts will increase your score. You only have 4 songs per region to get 10 score bars. The max you can have is 12 bars per region, so you can only miss TWO score bars. Basically, you'll need to 3-bar two songs and 2-bar the other two songs (or any combination that will result in 10+ score bars) in order to unlock the Bonus Song. This has to be done in every region. What's tough about this run is that the last region, Limbic System, has incredibly tough songs on Expert. Many will struggle trying to obtain 10 score bars in this region. Digital Paralysis and Dalatecht are the toughest to score on, so it would be best to practice the songs in Quickplay before taking them on in Campaign. You'll need about roughly 2500+ points to ensure 3 bars on each song. Some exceptions are easier songs like Perfect Brain, which doesn't have as many notes. You can also retry a song during this run if you didn't score enough points. Be sure that the retry is done BEFORE you clear the song. Otherwise, you won't be able to go back and play it. Once you clear Campaign this time, Super Mode should unlock. Like the end of Dalatecht, watch out for the same effect during the entire last Bonus Song, Wayfarer.
By the end of this playthrough, you should have:
- Comprehensive Treatment
Step 3 - Complete a full 15 song Campaign on Expert without failing, retrying or quitting.
Here's where one of the REAL challenges are in Amplitude. You must do what's mentioned in Step 2. Only this time, you cannot fail, retry or quit the game. If you do, you must start the Campaign all over again. The reason why Step 2 is important is because you also need to access the Bonus Songs along the way, which means that you need to obtain 10 score bars in each region. This all must be done flawlessly without restarting the song in any way. This will be incredibly tough for most players and a bit of a challenge for veterans. Use nanotech boosts wisely to help you get out of trouble.
By the end of this playthrough, you will have:
- Fluid Intelligence
Step 4 - Clear every song on Super difficulty.
This is yet another tough trophy to obtain. This time, choose "Quickplay" and go down the list of songs, clearing them all on Super difficulty. There are 30 songs total and you need to clear all of them on this difficulty. On Super, you start with a Multiply boost and every boost on all of the songs are only Multiply. However, there is no life recovery for clearing a string of notes. Also, there are no energy restoration checkpoints. These conditions make the songs even tougher to clear. You can only miss 9 times in a song, but there's a way to get an "extra chance" to help you clear the tougher songs. Refer to the Closure trophy for more information. Also, during this run, turn FreQ Mode on in Options and play and clear a song in that mode. You can turn off FreQ mode if you like, but I would highly recommend it from here on out.
By the end of this, you'll unlock:
- Super FreQ Out
Step 5 – Miscellaneous trophies & Clean-up
Going for the remaining trophies won't be too much of a hassle. Some may have some trouble on Golden Child and Luminary, but after some practice, they are very obtainable. They can be done on Expert, but Super is recommended. If you haven't gotten Overachiever and/or Accelerated Response, do so now. Aggregate Results is 45000 cumulative points across all 30 songs. If you're going for Luminary, you should have it by then. Total Awareness should unlock either before or during this granted if you unlocked ALL of the Bonus Songs.
You should unlock:
- Golden Child
- Total Awareness
- Aggregate Results
Step 6 – Multiplayer
Now that you've gotten all of the Single Player trophies, it's time to get these now. There are only three to obtain, but one's a bit tricky and may even require another person. It has been reported that Imperturbable has trouble unlocking. For a more detailed explanation and method of unlocking it, refer to the trophy guide. Group Therapy may require another player since you'll need to streak quite a bit in order to get 4000+ points.
Finally, after this, you'll unlock:
- Aggressive Tendencies
- Group Therapy
