First off, let me just say that Eden is my favorite downloaded game so far. It is so addictive.
Now, on to the topic...The trophies for this game are flawed. Let me explain why:
1. There are no gold trophies available. They are all bronze except for one (which is silver).
2. Some of the bronze trohpies are WAY too difficult for bronze level. Like the trophy for opening all seeds on a level without missing a single piece of pollen. COME ON! That should be gold all the way, or silver at least. Anyone who's played the game will know what I'm talking about. Another difficult one is destroying 15 mongers in a single "jump." There's hardly ever a situation when there are that many enemies on screen at once. That should be a silver trophy for sure.
3. One of the bronze trophies involves playing in THREE player mode. WTF!? I don't even have ONE other person to play with, let alone two. Also, I only own TWO controllers. So, to get a platinum trophy I would need to buy another controller and then pay two homeless guys to help me out? That's too much money for a trophy.
So, all-in-all, what this boils down to is: Because of the three-player trophy, I know I will never get the platinum trophy and because all of the other available trophies are only bronze, it's not even worth trying to get them. I will not spend five or more hours grinding away at a BRONZE trophy.
I sure hope other developers put more thought into THEIR trophies for future games.
