Rez Infinite is the PS4 port of the musical rail-shooter classic, featuring a completely new level and also supporting the PlayStation VR, though you do not need a PSVR to play and earn the in this game. If you have played Rez HD on Xbox360, the trophy list will be familiar to you as it is basically the same as the achievement list (plus a few new ones for the new Area X).
Many of the trophies in Rez' trophy list are based around beating the high score, but these are pretty easy to beat if you remember the game's basic: Hold and aim up to 8 enemies / targets, and then let go of . You will earn way more points this way. Other than this and with a bit practice and being familiar with the levels, achieving the should not be overly difficult.
Step 1: Clear Area 1 to Area 5 in Play Mode
Before you can dive into the new Area X, you will need to play the original five levels first. While you can earn the trophies for the first four areas in travelling mode (you take no damage in this mode compared to the regular play mode), it is not recommended to do so in preparation for later trophies.
During Step 1 you will earn these trophies:
Step 2: Play the new Area X
You can now freely choose whether you want to clean up the remaining trophies for the original areas first, and do all of Area X afterwards, or jump right into the new Area. Since this new level is probably what you have bought the game for (or simply want to experience it now), the next steps will focus on Area X, and the remaining steps on cleaning up the original areas.
So for Step 2, simply enjoy the new Area X. During this initial play through Area X, you can try to achieve a shot down ratio over 95% to save a run later.
During Step 2 you will earn this trophy:
Either Buttefly Dream or Birds in the Sky (depending on which color enemy you shot down)
Step 3: Defeat the Other Boss in Area X
Replay Area X and defeat the boss you did not defeat in the previous playthrough by defeating the other enemy (either red or blue) who are fighting each other in the middle of the playthrough. If you like, you can try to achieve a shot down ratio over 95% to save a run later.
During Step 3 you will earn this trophy:
Either Buttefly Dream or Birds in the Sky
Step 4: Clear Area X With a Shot Down Ratio Over 95%
Now that you got a feel for this area, you can aim for a clear with a shot down ratio over 95% if you have not got it in the previous two steps. You will need to do this two times: Once while defeating the standard final boss, and once with the alternative final boss.
During Step 4 you will earn these trophies:
Step 5: Area X Cleanup
If you have not gotten the three miscellaneous Area X trophies in one of the previous runs yet, now is the time to earn them.
During Step 5 you will earn these trophies:
Step 6: Beat the High Score in the Lost Area
Now is the time to return to the original five areas; more specifically, to the bonus stuff. The following steps can be done in any order, but doing some goals first will unlock options in the selection of Beyond Mode options, which will make some of the further playthroughs easier. But first, beat the High Score in the Lost Area with the standard options set. As this trophy is for beating a High Score and not just clearing, you want to avoid having set high score-disabling options.
During Step 6 you will earn this trophy:
Step 7: Clear All Five Original Areas With a Shot Down Ratio Over 95%
If you have not achieved a shot down ratio over 95% in all five areas yet, now is the time to do it. This will unlock infinite overdrive for Beyond Mode, which is very useful for the direct assault runs.
During Step 7 you will earn this trophy:
Step 8: Beat the High Score in Score Attack Mode For All Five Original Areas
While you could clear the direct assault (a run through all five areas without pause) now, it is recommended to beat the High Score in all five areas in Score Attack mode first since you are now well familiar with the individual levels.
During Step 8 you will earn this trophy:
Step 9: Beat the High Score in Boss Rush Mode
Beat the High Score in Boss Rush Mode (defeating all bosses one after one without playing through the individual levels beforehand). This might take a few tries, but the bosses from area 4 and especially area 5 offer lots of chances to score extra points.
During Step 9 you will earn this trophy:
Step 10: Clear All Direct Assault Levels
Now is the time for playing through all six Direct Assault levels. You do not need to beat the high score in any Direct Assault level, so you can activate infinite overdrive in the Beyond Mode options. Some bosses may need adjustments due to their movements, but you can play through the levels before the bosses by just activating overdrive with over and over.
Since each Direct Assault run takes about an hour, you will likely earn the trophy for playing the game for 10 hours as well during this step.
During Step 10 you will earn these trophies:
Step 11: Cleanup
Now is the time for cleaning up any trophy you have not gotten yet, which if you followed this Roadmap should be only one trophy (the one for clearing Score Attack Mode 30 times) as you will very likely unlock the trophy for beating all High Scores in Score Attack Mode well before clearing it 30 times. The first area is the shortest and easiest, so play it over and over until you get the trophy. If you got all other trophies, this will also unlock the .
During Step 11 you will earn these trophies:
