How easy is it to obtain the Platinum trophy in Dead Space?

Generally speaking, the Dead Space Platinum is fairly easy to get, although it does require multiple playthroughs. The hardest thing to do will be completing the campaign using only the Plasma Cutter, as it's not really recommended you play the game that way on your first playthrough. Marker Fragments can be tricky to find in New Game Plus, especially when you consider that the game will be more challenging by default.

It seems as though three playthroughs are recommended to go after the Platinum. This could take you up to 30 hours, depending on how long it takes you to clear certain areas at higher difficulties.
