Trophy Difficulty: 4.35/10 (Taken from Official Trophy Difficulty Rating Thread)
Trophy Breakdown: 36, 8, 3, 1 (8 trophies online)
Approximate Time: 25-40 Hours
Minimum Number of Playthroughs Needed: 1+ Miscellaneous Cleanup
Missable Trophies: None.
Glitched Trophies: None.
Do Cheats Disable Trophies?: No Known Cheats
Does Difficulty Affect Trophies?: No, play as easy or as challenging as you like.
WHAT'S IT ALL ABOUT?: As you will probably be aware, this game is a rally-based racing game, it is very fun to play and a fairly easy platinum to boot. The format is nothing new, you unlock races and events as you rank up and as you progress, your opponents will become a little harder to beat. Your rally career will culminate in the X Games where, when you win, you will be known as a legend worldwide!
IMPORTANT NOTE: This game has become impossible to platinum unless you have already achieved the 2 trophies Tourney and I Ain't Afraid Of No Ghost!. The developers have stopped supporting DiRTNET therefore there are no more weekly tournaments and no ghosts to download. You can still play online matches and rank up, so if you have the 2 aforementioned trophies, you are OK for now. Thanks to malo who brought this to my attention, and also showed me this thread: https://forums.xbox.com/xbox_forums/x.../t/347667.aspx
NOTE: This game has a pretty cool feature in the form of a menu that tracks your progress relating to trophies. In your trailer select My Stuff > Trophies for a detailed breakdown of what you need.
Step 1: Complete the Career, to make it easier for yourself you can play on Easy difficulty, however this is so insanely easy you may want to play on Casual so it does not bore you, plus this will surely help you become a better racer for the online modes later on. However if some of the trophies that require you to fulfil a criteria and still win are causing you trouble, change it to easy if you need to. In this step you will unlock the trophies related to ranking up, racing in different classes, and so forth. Don’t spend any money for the first 10 races or so, and you will unlock the Big Bucks! trophy. Try and win every single race and event you can so you don’t have to repeat it later on. Winning every single race will also help ensure you don’t get frustrated later on with You’re The Best, Around!.
Step 2: Now for the online modes, there are 8 trophies here and since the online is dying out it can be tricky to get these without boosting. See the individual trophy descriptions for more information. Find boosting partners here: https://www.playstationtrophies.org/forum/dir...ng-thread.html
Step 3: Mop up - most likely this will mean random miscellaneous trophies that may not have unlocked for you but are pretty simple to obtain. Again, check the descriptions below for individual trophies.
