Child of Eden is a rhythm-based rail shooter based on shooting targets in unison with the beat of the music in the levels. It is the spiritual successor to the esoteric PS2 classic Rez. The game is nothing like you've ever played before. It has some of the greatest music to grace video games and the visuals are stunning. The game's platinum trophy is one of the hardest on the PS3, it has a completion rate below 1% and only ~10 people have the platinum. Prepare for a challenge and a prestigious platinum if you attempt and get it. Due to the uniform nature of the trophy list many of the trophies overlap in tips and descriptions. The good part is if you have a knack for this game and move along the learning curve most trophies will come naturally.
Step One: Normal Playthrough
When you first start the game you will have to progress through the game on Normal difficulty and you will have to progress through each level in a linear fashion to unlock each successive level. Simply play through each level just worrying about completing them.
Step Two: 100% Runs and Gold Stars on Normal
I would recommend you not go to the newly unlocked Hard mode after beating normal. You should go back and focus on beating each level with 100% purification and then after that go for the Gold Stars (100% and over 800,000 points) on Normal. See the video guides I have posted in the Trophy Guide for a Gold Star walkthrough.
Step Three: Hard Playthrough
After getting Gold Stars on Normal now play through Hard mode. Your skills should be very tuned from getting Gold Stars on Normal so you should know the levels, enemy spawns, which enemies are the most potent threats and your planned strategy of attack.
Step Four: 100% Runs and Gold Stars on Hard
This will be the main deciding factor of who is elite enough for the platinum trophy. First, only focus on getting 100% purification and surviving. Then take on the task of trying to get the Gold Star on each level. Tips for each level is listed in the Trophy Guide.
Step Five: Beat Hope and Focus on Collectibles
Hope is unlocked after you beat Normal but I recommend saving it for last. It is a level that will focus on surviving and will require a lot of practice. From there you should focus on getting the Super Collider trophy and Ultimate Compiler for the last trophies you need before Platinum.
