Here we have a pretty fun game on vita using the touch screen to follow along to Michael Jacksons most famous songs. This was my first and only music/rhythm game that I have played but I didn't find it that difficult. It is fun and I found the controls very responsive which would have killed it for me if they hadn't been.
Again I must reiterate that if you don't have a friend that can come over to your house and ADHOC with you, you will not get the Platinum!
Each song has 5 different challenges that must be met to fully clear the song. Some of them are pretty easy while others you might have to try for a few times. Each challenge can be tied to either a trophy, a glove, a costume for another song, or a statue. Just know that you will need to clear all 5 challenges for the 15 songs. That makes it a total of 60 challenges!
Please also know that it takes a lot of points to reach Legend! With that being said if you are a rage quitter than instead of quitting out of the song cause you made a mistake, set down the vita and let the song play out so you get the points. I had everything done by level 16 and was stuck playing Blood On The Dance Floor on Expert over and over and over...until I got the Legend trophy.
Lastly Difficulty only affects trophies or challenges where it is specifically stated. For example, get a K rating on Expert can only be done on Expert. Where as Draw 45 perfect shapes in a row can be done on any difficulty you would like. For the high scores you will want to go for them on expert. The most important thing is to have no misses. You can have OKs and still blast top scores.
Step One: Go for the MP trophies and challenges
If you are taking the advice I said above than you have someone you can do this with. If you are just playing this for fun or the other trophies than you can skip this step. During this time you will unlock 1 glove, 1 statue and 1 trophy. You will need to do the following:
Speed Demon - Win 2 Multiplayer Battles
Don't Stop Till You Get Enough - Win 3 Multiplayer Battles
Rock with you - Win 5 Multiplayer Battles
Once these are out of the way move onto the next step.
Step Two: Go for the Gloves
Why would I do the hardest move next!?!?! Well you are going to have to get these to get the platinum. Also these will help you get other trophies that you might be struggling with. I am being honest when I say I didn't need any of the gloves to help clear any of the challenges. The only glove I used was the Obsidian Glove that has the 1.4 Multiplier to grind out to level 20.
White Armguard - Bad: Draw only perfect Shapes on rookie difficulty.
Obsidian Glove - Blood On The Dance Floor: Complete the song on expert difficulty with a "King of Pop" grade.
Black Armguard - Hollywood Tonight: Draw 50 perfect shapes in a row on expert difficulty.
Star Sapphire Glove - Beat It: Score 145,000 points.
Golden Glove - Leave Me Alone: Reach the top position on the leaderboard (greater than 125,000 points)
Emerald Glove - Smooth Criminal: Draw 45 perfect shapes in a row.
Ruby Glove - Ghosts: Wear the Alternate Outfit.
Multiplayer Glove - Complete MP Challenge
Step Three: Clean up other challenges
You probably cleared some challenges while doing the first two steps. In this part you will need to go through and clear each of the five challenges for each song. None of them are all that difficult and it shouldn't take that much of your time to get them done and out of the way.
Step Four: Grind to Legend
As I said before, I was level 16 (without doing MP challenges) once I had finished everything else in the game. It took me a lot of grinding on Blood On The Dance Floor because I could clear 400k each time I did it. You can pick any song of your preference or mix it up and just keep completing songs until you hit the max level.
[PS3T Would Like to Thank tsugarusatsujin for this Road Map]
|Obtain all the trophies in Michael Jackson The Experience HD|
As usual once you have all the other trophies this will pop. The only thing that will really prevent people from getting this trophy are the MP related challenges and trophies (beating a dead horse).
|Become Legend (Level 20)|
This is going to take a total of 20,000,000 points to unlock this. The song that I was able to obtain the most points on was Blood On The Dance Floor with a score of 407,074 so I will round down to 400k. That means if you were able to do that EVERY time it would take you 50 times with that song. I would say you will average about 200k a song maybe. That is why it is important to not rage quit while playing through a song since you will end up grinding at the end.
|A Glove for Any Occasion!|
|Unlock all the Gloves in the game.|
These can help you out with completing some of the challenges during the game. I didn't use any but the 1.4 multiplier at the end to grind to level 20. I am not some superior rhythm game player so I don't want you to be intimidated. I think the biggest benefit of them is they give you a bit of a safety net that takes away some of the pressure while going for the challenges. Here is a list of the gloves, how they are unlocked, and what they do.
|Score 145,000 Points on Beat It|
On Expert I scored 184,595 points with an A rating. This means that I had to have missed or gotten an ok on some of the shapes. I didn't use any glove to increase my score so if you are having trouble and you have unlocked a score multiplier glove use that and it shouldn't be a problem.
|Perform 50 Perfect moves in a row on Hollywood Tonight (Expert difficulty)|
This is the one song that I would restart on if I messed up while going for the trophy. I found that the beginning sequence up to around the 70th shape is relatively easy. I had to restart about 7 or 8 times but going for it from the start of the song is the best way to get this trophy done and out of the way (while also unlocking a glove)!
|Perform 30 Perfect moves in a row on Thriller (Expert difficulty)|
30 moves shouldn't be all that difficult. Since this is a bit of a tough song I would recommend to just go for this throughout the whole song. Opposed to restarting. There are some parts where you can get over 10 easy perfects out of the way. Using a glove will also help with this if you are getting stuck. Save this until you feel confident with playing this game.
|Unlock all the Michael Jackson Figures in the game|
You will unlock these through the natural progression of clearing the challenges for each of the songs. They do not effect the game or help you in anyway so there is no rush to get this trophy done and out of the way.
|Remember the Sequence!|
|Perform the secret freestyle sequence on Remember The Time|
See the image below for all of the freestyle moves:
|Complete 150 Perfect moves on The Way You Make Me Feel (Medium difficulty)|
150 Total Perfect Moves! This has to be done on medium so you can't do it on Expert (which would make it easier) Play through the song and memorize the pattern and don't worry about the mistakes you make. At the end of the song as long as your total perfect shapes is 150 or more than the trophy is yours.
|Unlock, equip and dance with an alternate costume for the first time|
Any song that has an alternate costume as soon as you unlock it you can go to that song and below the difficulty selection you will see the costume button. Switch it to the alternate costume play a round and the trophy is yours.
|The Tour Continues…|
|Become a Dance Fanatic (Level 10)|
See Become Legend
|Perform 250 Perfect moves on Ghosts|
250 Total Perfect moves! Not in a row! so play through the song on Expert so that you have more shapes thrown at you which increases the amount of perfects you can get. Playing through this a few times will get you used to the song then once you are in the groove just knock out the shapes. If you get a great, ok, miss don't worry about it because it doesn't count against the 250 so just keep ploughing through.
|Rock The Night Away!|
|Don’t miss a single move on Rock With You (Medium difficulty)|
Simple enough explanation right. If you are having trouble equip the Black or White Armband which will give you 2 mistakes for incorrect shapes or bad timing. With one of these equipped it should be very easy to get this trophy out of the way.
|Get an A grade on Bad (Medium difficulty)|
If the majority of your moves are Perfect or Great this will come no problem. You can get ok and miss and still get an A so don't beat yourself up if you mess up a move during the song. Just finish it out and you will probably get an A anyway along with the points to work towards level 20.
|Top of the World!|
|Get the highest score in the leaderboard on Black or White|
You will need to beat the score of 120,000 points. Getting a K rating doesn't matter! I got 153,964 points with an A rating and beat this score. When going for a high score the most important thing is avoiding misses because you then have to build up your combo meter again missing out on precious points.
|A Smooth Criminal…|
|Hold a Max Combo Level for 90 seconds on Smooth Criminal (Medium difficulty)|
A Max Combo is earned by getting consecutive shapes in a row. It is pretty easy to build this up and once it is built up you will just need to keep it at Max for the 90 second duration. If you get Perfect, Great, or even ok the combo stays. If you end up with a miss somewhere in the middle of the song you will most likely not unlock this. Go back, try again and avoid getting a miss.
|The Tour Begins…|
|Become a Trainee (Level 2)|
See Become Legend
|Complete Speed Demon 6 times|
You completed this 2 times for a MP challenge and you will probably do it another 4 or 5 while going for the other challenges. If you are good enough to get them all out of the way then just do like I did and start the song and let it play out without going for any shapes (if you need a break) or play it normally for points and then this will unlock.
|Out on the Dance floor|
|Draw only lines and spins during Freestyle on Blood on The Dance Floor|
This mean that you can only draw LINES or SPINS during freestyle. So draw a right line then a spin to the right and keep repeating until the song ends. I saw some people having trouble with some of these Draw Only challenges but I didn't run into it. If you don't get it on your first time don't reset the challenge because you will be playing it again anyway.
|Still Not Enough!|
|Win 3 multiplayer Battles on Don’t Stop ‘Til You Get Enough|
Convince a friend that this is going to be the next GOTY get him to buy it then ADHOC with him while you apologize for misleading him. Just have your friend do nothing while you complete the song 3 times and this trophy is yours.
|Unlock, equip and dance with the alternate costume on Leave Me Alone|
Once you have unlocked the alternate costume for Leave Me Alone simply equip it and go through one round of the song. You will get the trophy as soon as the song starts but you will want to finish the song to complete the challenge.
|Score at least 80,000 on Billie Jean|
Well my highest score on Billie Jean was 159,509 so it shouldn't be hard at all for you to clear this. Go for it on medium and you should have it on your first try.
|Get a B grade or better on Thriller (Medium difficulty)|
As the trophy states it has to be done on medium difficulty and you have to get a B or better. If you are having trouble getting a B on a song on medium this may not be the game for you. You can miss a decent amount and you should still be able to pull off a B.
|Complete every song once|
This will come as you are going for all the other trophies. This one you don't have to worry about.
|Watch any song in the “On demand Performance” Mode|
As you gain more levels it will say X song is now available in the On Demand Performance Mode. As soon as a song is available Back out of history go to Backstage then On Demand Performance select the unlocked song and watch it. Once you have watched the whole song the trophy will pop, very easy trophy.
|Perform the special Thriller move during Freestyle|
Once it has been unlocked (it will say this after completing some of the challenges for this song) all you need to do is tap the back of the Vita during the Freestyle sequence and there is your trophy.
