Section 02. Introduction
Silent Hill 3 HD is an HD upping of a game that originally came out on the PS2 and is one of two games part of the HD Collection. Unlike the other games; this one is nowhere near as complicated, so the platinum should come easily.
WARNING: Due to the poor programming in this game it is prone to freezing. This can make earning one of the trophies extremely difficult as you have to beat the game while saving no more than 2 times. It is very possible to obtain the platinum but understand that your game may freeze and result in loss of progress.
Section 2.1 - What to know
Even though earning the platinum isn't much of a challenge, there are a few things you should understand to help make your trek to the platinum even easier.
Pausing the game
Pressing will pause the game and the timer so if you forget on where to go, you can pause and look at a walkthrough. Pausing will freeze the in game timer and help you earn the 3 hour time limit.
After clearing the game once start up an Extra New Game. Go into the options screen and press , , , and simultaneously to access the special options menu. One of the options here is Bullet Adjustment, setting this number higher gives you more bullets on pickup.
This game has an immense amount of instant death traps in it, if you do not know how to bypass them this game can be very frustrating. Having the game on Easy does prevent you from falling off edges to your death but there are still plenty of other traps.
When you die you may notice a Continue option, the game will start you out at the beginning of the area you're currently in. If you wish to continue you will have one less save as choosing to continue will count as a save; this affects your final score and the trophy as well.

Section 03. Walkthrough
Luckily this game only has 3 endings and you'll only need 2.5 playthroughs to reach the platinum. The big thing to remember is you'll need to earn 333 kills across all playthroughs. The harder the difficulty the more enemies that spawn, but you can still earn 333 in two playthroughs on Normal if you do some hunting.
Section 3.1 - First Playthrough
If you want you can play this one on Action Level on Easy, but I advise you to play on Normal and go for as many kills as possible. For your first playthrough I suggest you focus on earning 75 melee kills, killing the final boss with the Katana (your free to kill other bosses with guns), and earning as many kills as possible; 111 is plenty but you should do more. You don't need to be concerned with earning the speed, save or damage trophies yet; those will be infinitely easier on later playthroughs. As long as you do good enough you should earn the Normal Ending. Be sure to save your clear data.

Section 3.2 - Second Playthrough
From the menu screen choose Extra New Game to continue. I suggest from here on out you play with the Action Level on Medium. Your goal this time around will be picking up speed and wasting everything you see with guns. I suggest you turn up the Bullet Adjustment in the options menu; at most all you need to do is kill 75 with guns and have more gun kills than melee kills. I also suggest playing very poorly and focusing on getting the Possesed Ending. You can also pick up the unique weapons you've unlocked. Be sure to kill as many enemies as possible this playthrough; 111 is sufficient but the more the better. Be sure to save your clear data.
If you haven't killed the final boss with a melee attack yet, NOW is the time to do so.

Section 3.3 - Third Playthrough
From the menu screen choose Extra New Game to continue. This isn't going to be too difficult of a playthrough; all you'll need to do is focus on the gold trophies and getting as many kills as possible and you'll have the perfect weapon to do this (Infinite Submachinegun), as long as you've killed the final boss with a melee weapon. By the time you finish this playthrough you should've earned a total of 333 kills across your three playthroughs, if not you'll need to play through the entire game again until you earn that many.
If you played both previous playthroughs on Normal and killed plenty of enemies, it is possible you already have 333 kills. If this is the case, you can combine this step with the next step.

Section 3.4 - Final Playthrough
As long as you've done everything properly up to this point, this will be your last playthrough and will only require you to play through half the game. If you've earned 333 kill across your previous playthroughs you'll have access to one more weapon and it is paramount to earning your last two trophies. Any of the limitation trophies you may have missed can be earned here as well; those are the limited save, limited damage and limited time.
