Mortal Kombat is an all out action fighting game it has been around for a number of years, the first encounter I had with it however was on the sega megadrive. This game has tried to push the series to a new level and expand in a new way with brand new features! With the introduction on the DC comic characters I felt that this was actually a pretty decent game. If you are looking for a quick platinum then I suggest you side step this one. To get 100% on this game it will require you to have a lot of time, dedication and a huge amount of patience. Here is the step by step guide on the best way to get yourself one more platinum towards your collection.
Step 1: Story Mode x2
I would suggest to do this first no matter what! There are two sides to choose here, the DC side or the Mortal Kombat side. I would have the difficulty set on normal or easy just to give yourself an easier time when fighting the computer. Each side will only take a few hours separately but once you have done this you can move on to the more challenging trophies.
Step2: Arcade x2
This is not challenging at all. The best method as the guide says is to set the settings to easy and have each round at 30 seconds each. This will cause you no fuss when fighting opponents and will make it quicker for you to achieve each trophy. Just do this for both sides in the game and this will be an easy trophy. All finishers can be done in here and is highly recommended by me, set all matches to a 30 second period and use the list within the guide, the link can be found at the bottom.
Step 3: Kombo Challenges
This is to be known as the hardest and most toughest/challenging trophies in a playstation 3 game to date. There are really no tips that a person can give because the way you complete all challenges is up to your style of play and whether you can be patient enough to stand the disappointment of failing almost 90% of the time. Just follow the videos located in the guide and try to follow them as best you can.
Step Four: Online
No longer possible due to server closure.
BOOSTING – There are two trophies related to online, to get a flawless victory (1 round) and to play 100 matches. I would recommend boosting the flawless trophy because it would make it so much easier for you. The 100 wins trophy will just come over time and doesn’t need boosting because you can either win or lose and it won’t matter.
NON BOOSTING – This is pretty much the same as the boosting way except you will have to try extra hard to get the flawless trophy. You need to take no damage and beat the opponent in 1 round. I would just suggest using the same moves over and over. The 100 wins doesn’t matter for this again because it requires no boosting, just play 100 matches.
Note: Many have found the 100 matches trophy to be glitched. This happened with me - I had to play 135 matches before the trophy popped up so be sure to have patience!
Step Five: Finishing Up
All extra trophies will relate to finishing up. The 200 versus matches can only be played against a second player. Therefore I recommend to keep playing matches against someone or yourself on a 30 time period. This will make it much faster and easier for you. Once again, the versus matches are another great opportunity to try and get all of the finishers done, these are very easy to get if you just use the list from the guide. (Link at the bottom).
This last trophy ‘super moves and promoves’ should all be done within practice mode. The enemy here can be non-responsive if you wish so it makes it a great deal easier when doing certain moves that you need time for. There is a link within the guide to this game that shows all of the moves that you can do and is a spot on list that you should have no problems with.
