1) Play through the Main DNA sequences + 100% Sync + Desmond Sequences.
The first step is to play through the main story and just enjoy the game. The good thing about AC games in general is the lack of missable trophies as there is free roam at the end so you don't have to worry about that. The Desmond sequences can be done at any time when you have enough of the animus data fragments; you can play them after the main story if you want. The trophy order suggests that the developers intended them to be played at the same time, if you look at the order the Desmond sequences slot in between the main ones. It's all up to you though, however you want to do it, go for it.
You can go for whatever trophies you want as you progress. You should try and get all the 100% sync objectives in the main sequences because the more you miss, the more memories you will have to go back and repeat. Also, I'd concentrate on recruiting and leveling up your Assassins as you go as it can be a bit annoying if you are only concentrating on that, as they can take a while to level up.
The other thing you should keep in mind is money. You are going to need a lot of it to buy all the books, nearly half a million. So building up the city a bit and regularly collecting your total from the bank should be the minimum you are doing.
2) Clean up via free roam.
This is where you'll go around getting the rest of the collectibles, getting all the miscellaneous trophies, and finish off the 40 SP trophies. Have a look through at what you are missing and refer to each trophy in the guide. Anything that you skipped earlier you can go back and do now, including the Desmond sequences by pausing and selecting return to the animus island.
The Online Pass is now free for everyone so if your copy didn't come with one, then don't worry . Thankfully, the multiplayer is a lot more reasonable this time round and won't take very long to do. Ultimately, you'll be making your way up to level 20, getting the rest along the way. You shouldn't need to concentrate on much other than playing at least one match of each mode. The first 10 trophies on the list are for the MP so have a read through them before you start online.

1. Obtain All Trophies
There really isn't any sure-fire way to go about getting these trophies, so go at it however you wish and in whichever order you prefer. Note that it's rather hard to find a match that is actually on the map and game mode you will need for trophies, so it may be easier to boost. You can find boosting partners here: Trophy Boosting Thread. Note that if boosting, most trophies will require three players, and one will require four (Carnival) to even start the private match.
If you need any further hints to obtain these trophies in a boosting match, this thread is rather useful: Tips for these trophies. Also, for added help, look to posts #7,#8 and #9 below.

Welcome to the third and final Assassin's Creed: Revelations DLC installment, cryptically entitled "The Lost Archive". This story arc deals with some of the gaps concerning Subject 16's past, as well as additional background information about the always lovely Lucy Stillman. This DLC does NOT add anything to Ezio's gameplay experience per se, however downloading it does unlock the "Vlad The Impaler" pre-order bonus mission if that was something that you missed out on.
This installment strictly features the "Portal/Tetris" gameplay that so many gamers either love or absolutely hate, but from a difficulty standpoint it's all quite reasonable.
Step 1: Play through all 7 Memories
First time through just load it up and get through all 7 Memories. This will net you Part of the Creed, Jump they say, Enter the Animus, Meet Your Maker, The Loop and almost assuredly Save yourself as well. There is no reason that you can't get all of the decipher fragments as well in the first playthrough, but you can clean them up in chapter select if you'd rather just focus on the platforming.
Step 2: Locate all 20 decipher fragments
These are the glowing floating cube things that serve as the main collectable in the game (other than the letters, which have no trophy value from what I can tell). These aren't God of War feather chests just sitting around out in the open - they're hidden out of sight unless you're purposely looking for them.
Finding the 20th decipher fragment unlocks Find all Pieces as well as a screen message saying "LOCATE THE BACKDOOR" that opens up the way for the ending and the credits (and the Breaking the Loop trophy).
Step 3: Locate The Backdoor
At the very end of Memory 5 you can see another doorway over to the left of the one that you're supposed to go into. After getting all 20 decipher fragments and restarting Memory 5, you'll notice a new cut-scene when you load it up. It's a golden magical bridge leading to the previously inaccessible doorway. You have to replay the whole Memory and then take this new pathway at the very end. You will finally see the game's credits and unlock Breaking the Loop.
Step 4: Flawless Runs
This just leaves Impress Warren Vidic and Cross Styx without dying. Using DNA Memory select, you can load up Memories 4 and 7 as many times as need be until you ace the required parts without dying. See those trophies for more information.
