This is one of those trophies that if you don’t get it the first time you play, you’ll have to play the game in its entirety another time just to get one trophy. While this may be fine if you’re a fan of the game and don’t mind multiple playthroughs, sometimes it’s good to just get these kinds of trophies out of the way from the start. Let’s get you this trophy.
Grim Fandango Remastered – The Right Way
Play the whole game with tank controls. Tim demanded this trophy. – Gold
TIP: When you start this game for the first time there is no menu. You’ll see a cut scene that introduces the game and then be given control of Manny. So the usual start menu that has all of the options and whatever else start menus have is gone. Before you even take one step with Manny make sure you enter the options menu by pressing Options on your PS4 controller. Once you’re in the options menu make sure to turn on Tank Controls and save your game. If you’re trying to get this trophy this has to be the first thing that you do in the game. If you move around or do anything else it could jeopardize the whole trophy and you’ll have to play again.
Now for playing the whole game with tank controls. Tank controls are awkward and clunky at best since you can only move in one direction at a time. If you need to turn you have to turn first before moving forward and the same thing when going backwards. It’s like operating a tank which is why it’s called tank controls. This will present a bunch of problems throughout the game as it will sometimes cause you to get lost or move into an area where you can’t see Manny and going backwards or forwards doesn’t help. For this reason I’m going to suggest that you save as often as possible. You don’t want to get too far ahead in the game only to get stuck and have to go back a few hours from your last save.
Be warned because getting this trophy is extremely frustrating and you’ll want to shut off tank controls in the middle of the game and just play normally, but stay strong! You can get this trophy and when you feel like just giving up it’s time to save the game and shut it off for a little before going back to it. Don’t make getting this trophy any harder then it already is.
