View Full Version : Achievement Difficulty?

I checked out the achievement list and they all seemed achieveable. I just wanted some opinions before I downloaded this game and realized that the achievements would be "controller throwing" hard!

Seeing as trwo people in the world have 200 and only one with 11 achievemetns, it may just be controller throwing hard...

I hate it, it's controller throwing hard. Of course I never played it before so that might be a factor. I did do much better with my arcade stick, but I haven't put in the time to really get any of the achievements.

Thanks for the info... I think I'll give this game a pass. I just hate playing XBL Arcade games that have insane achievement difficulties.

So would 100 points be hard to achieve in this game? I'm looking for a new arcade to download...

Personally I only have 45 but I never put more than an hour into it. Looking at the achievements I'm sure you could get 100 in a night of practice.

Probably took me a week of occasionally playing it to get 155 points. (10 Achievements). Although I doubt I'll get the last 2 any time soon...

The Defender achievements are reasonably tough but not as challenging as Robotron or Geometry Wars. 70 points are probably easily achieveable with little practice, these being:
Fifteen grand
Getting better
Nice catch
One Wave

It is quite a bit harder than I remember. I used to rack up vulgar scores on this at the 7-11 but now it makes me feel hurt inside.

I've always disliked this game, beginning when it was originally at the arcade, and then every other incarnation of it i've ever played. It moves wicked fast, much like Robotron, and things seem to home in on you and take you out quick. I actually accidentally downloaded this , so i fugured i'd try my hand at some of the achievements - after one day, i have 3...
