Introduction

The Raven is a 3rd person point and click adventure game with interesting setting and good story. The game is very easy to platinum with proper guide which was written by MaG from Gameboomers and gave me permission to use it here.
There are 17 missable trophies which may look daunting but by following the guide step by step You wont miss any of those and get Your platinum trophy in no time.

 

To make things easier i will write down missable trophies in the exact order they appear during the game:

 

:bronze Music Lover
:gold Accurate Detective
:silver Humble Helper
:bronze Firebug
:silver Crime Scene Investigator
:silver Advanced Detective (Episode 1)
:gold Master Detective (Episode 1)
:bronze Brilliant Mind
:silver History Fan
:silver Snooper
:silver Advanced Detective (Episode 2)
:gold Master Detective (Episode 2)
:silver Know-it-all
:bronze Animal Lover
:silver Advanced Detective (Episode 3)
:gold Master Detective (Episode 3)
:silver Completionist

Important things to be aware of before playing:

 

1) The game has one glitched trophy - Crime Scene Investigator. Other guides say to save before entering the baroness room but on the PS3 the game will auto save inside anyway so this wont work. Backing Your save file to PS+ is the only way (You can also try to back it up with usb stick as there are reports save is not locked).
All You have to do to not miss the trophy is to STAY in the room and NOT leave to report to Legrand until trophy pops (while checking all items). Another VERY IMPORTANT tip is to remember to NOT take the diary lying on the desk, but to read it with :circle:. Following these two steps and checking every item in the room will almost surely net You the trophy.

 

There are also reports from people to NOT SKIP the text while being in the room.

 

2) Save Your game from time to time as bugs and glitches like to occur in this game and Your character can get stuck in a wall which forces You to restart the game from last save.

 

3) If You want a platinum trophy then just in case do not ever hit Square button or use any hints as it will lower Your overall score which is neccessary for all trophies.

 

4) Also look out to not hit "Hints" in Your journal accidently as it can also lower Your score.

 

5) IMPORTANT! If You want want to enjoy the story do not look at the description of "Snooper" Trophy as its a massive spoiler which says who is the real bad guy (yes its dumb i know). The problem is, this is a missable trophy so i suggest to take a peek if You want near the end of Episode 2, when You are about to guess who is the culprit.

 

Now You are ready to begin Your journey.

 

As i see no reason to re-invent the wheel again, im gonna use the walkthrough of MaGtRo from Gameboomers who did the great job and prepared complete guide for PC version which includes all trophies/achievements.

 

We have got official permission from MaGtRo to use it

Crime Scene Investigator :silver

*TIP* It's wise to backup your save file to PS+ just in case the trophy won't unlock. *TIP*

In Episode 1 you are to enter the baroness cabin, examine a few items and report back to Legrand. When you enter and start examining items DO NOT LEAVE THE ROOM until the trophy pops. Another VERY IMPORTANT tip is to remember to NOT take the diary lying on the desk, but to read it with circle18x18.png. Following these two steps and checking every item in the room will almost surely net you the trophy.

There are also reports that trophy popped after NOT SKIPPING text in this room.

Just in case here is the list of items to examine:

1. Examine portholes fully
2. Examine drawer with the audio tape in it fully then pick up the tape
3. Pick up feathers under the bed
4. Examine painting fully
5. Examine mannequin fully
6. Examine portable bar fully
7. Examine alarm fully
8. Examine vent fully
9. Examine luggage fully
10. Examine handbag fully

A couple of things to add... Here were my scores for each episode to get Master Detective:

  • Episode 1: 19,500
  • Episode 2: 12,000
  • Episode 3: 8,500

Not sure if it's even possible to miss the scores if you follow the guide and never press Square.  I'd venture to say that even half the conversations aren't even required, but I wasn't willing to risk it.

 

Also, the walkthrough mentions checking the Journal several times, which I'm not sure is even required tbh, but just press Select to bring it up and R1 to scroll through all the pages.

 

Awesome guide!  Thanks!

Guide updated with some info regarding glitched trophy.

 

Thanks for input Capt. I missed the scores while following the guide and still got it. I had 19,000 and 8,000.

The CSI trophy glitched on me. I didn't back up my save because this said you had to send it to PS+. I figured I would play it again before I would wait the 24 hours needed to dl the ps+ save again.

 

When I went to back it up during my 2nd playthrough, I noticed 2 save files. One for progress and the other for the overall game.

 

The progress one could be saved to another profile so I assume it wasn't locked. Are you sure it requires PS+ (locked save file)?

 

Thanks for the guide.

Hmm..im not sure so its a nice find. That means You can backup Your save on USB stick inf necessary correct?

I'm not sure but it's worth a shot. The back up I had on another account was not needed since I got it on the second try. But yes, I was able to copy one of the saves. I didn't try to copy the other.

Alright thanks for the info.

Please adjust the guide. The CSI trophy is in chapter 1.

 

I was assuming it was in chapter 2 based on this and got fucked out of the trophy since I didn't think it was til chapter 2

I have no idea how this typo happened. Thanks for spotting it.

 

I edited the CSI trophy and few things to make it easier.

ok so followed the guide from start to finish 2 fucking times now and still im missing "Completionist" any ideas?

Not really. You must have missed something, but its impossible for me to tell You what exactly it is. Other people had no problem geting the plat.

Not really. You must have missed something, but its impossible for me to tell You what exactly it is. Other people had no problem geting the plat.

the only thing i did was skip the cutscenes and all that talk bull shit, apart from that i followed the guide word for word, it can stay at 97% fuck playing this shite a 3rd time

So did You solve it yet? Maybe dont skip movies? or i dunno how to help You. fu**ing game.
