View Full Version : "Over Achiever!" achievement glitched?

I just completed the game with all of the attainable achievements, except for "Over Achiever!" (which you have to unlock all of the other achievements to get it), and the achievement didn't unlock. Is anyone else having this issue?

I've tried repeating races that would normally trigger an achievement/save. I've cleared my cache. I've tried doing this with the title update, and without.

I've been trying to be 1st in the world to finish this game (you probably beat me). I've had the same problem.

I'll try calling THQ when they open in a few hours.

Cool. Keep us posted. I sent in an e-mail/bug report to THQ last night. If I hear anything, I'll post it here.

I called them, and they said they didn't have any information yet, and to send an e-mail, so I did.

I started playing this game before the title update, so I wonder if that has anything to do with it. Since this Achievement triggers when you unlock all the others, and since we've already unlocked all the others, there's nothing we can do but hope they release another update that somehow lets us trigger it.

Sorry for the off topic but how long did the game take to complete? Quick?

Hope you figure out how to get he last achieve!

I recommend anybody thinking of playing this game to go to THQ's support page and send them a message about this problem. That might speed things up.

I received an e-mail from THQ asking whether or not if I had installed the update. I responded, and I sent them a link to this thread.

-As far as completion time is concerned, probably around 5-6 hours to complete all of the events. There are a ton of side "missions/quests" that you'll need to complete to get the full 1000... err... 900. :)

Having started playing the game before the patch/title update came out may have something to do with it. But, I would think that the save system would run a check of all achievements earned each time you save any event. But, who knows?

I'll keep you guys posted.

Here's the response I recieved:

"Unfortunately this is not a known issue and no suggestions are available at this time. We are currently looking into the matter and if a solution or suggestion is found, we will provide it in the Support section of our website."

I've found something else that may help. Although THQ publishes this game, it was designed by a company called Incinerator Studios. You can send them an e-mail at admin@incineratorstudios.com, and their Web site is
http://www.incineratorstudios.com

If we let them know about this problem, it might speed things up.

How in the name of God can a company fuck such a simple achievement unlock? Yet another glitch.EVERY single new game it's the same.I pray for you guys it get's sorted but I wouldn't hold my breath.Stuff like Ghostbusters is still screwed and that was a major league release :(

I played the game after the update came out and now have the 900G and NO "Over Achiever" achievement unlocked. I also installed the game to my hardrive to possibly avoid this GLITCH, but no luck. This Fucking Sux BALLS, they better figure something out, B/C this is FUCKING pathetic...

You know it would f'en suck if the achievement will not unlock until they put out another 650 points of dlc you have to pay for over the next year. Then you would have all the achievements in the game and "Over Achiever" will unlock... What has happened to Quality Control?

is any body sure that we don't need to win all races and mini games in gold to get this achievement? I won some " Guido Kart champ " races in silver (damn it. what kind of a race was that. you felt like racing with ball not car!)

Well it say's "unlock all other achievements".These guys have done that.It says nothing about gold medals so I doubt it.However,it is possible (though doubtful),some DLC is inbound and that has screwed it up,as it would take the highest amount of ineptitude to mess up the coding of the achievement unlocking.Honestly,it's level 1 basic at best.

I actually posted the question to their "support" page. This is the answer I got back, which is the typical answer I would expect.


Thank you for contacting THQ Customer Support"

Unfortunately this is a new issue which we are currently looking into. At this time we do not have any solutions or suggestions. Please continue checking the THQ Supports section for any further info/updates

So I see it was being an SOL problem, kind of like Ghostbusters.

This is just ridiculous!!! How hard could it possibly be to make sure the code that unlocks the "unlocked all other achievements" code is programmed into a kids game? I know it must be extremely difficult and time consuming (insert sarcastic face) to remember to insert code ---->HERE<---- into this game?!?!

I am super angry at not being able to add this to my 1000 point completion list....maybe they will fix this soon enough!

Does anyone have 100% completion showing on the main menu? Maybe you need to unlock all the characters, paint jobs and everything else? Not sure but it is what I am attempting to do while playing through.

Lots of people have 1k in UFC...and it really is not a developers biggest concerned that an achievement that only a niche group of people care about is glitched.

Thats because they played it before the patch, THQ pulled a codemasters and glitched 2 achievements while trying to make a patch

This game is on the way to me and so it sucks to hear about the glitched achievement. Anyone else notice that they sort of modeled this after the platinum trophies on the PS3.. a bit funny that the achievement that doesnt unlock is similar to the platinum trophy.

11-04-2009, 09:44 PM
thats my question is if hey glitched it attempting to patch it, couldn't we *people that did not play it* unplug from live play through the entire game, get all te achievements and then just plug it back in after geting 1k

BckHlPnchr
11-05-2009, 05:05 AM
Dont' really know I can't test the theory b/c i had the game through gamefly played what i could and sent the game back. I figure once the shit is patched I will get the game again just for the 100 points and game completion

ImAKing1987
11-05-2009, 12:07 PM
Also another idea is if we think its the patch that glitched it, then just delete all update patches on your system and try it that way. I cant remember right off how to do it but I know its somewhere on xbox.com; then just put the game in refuse the update and pray that works...lol.

has any one tried this !/
i've just completed the game today but i was on xbox live and now i'm stuck on 900G !?
this is another game that has done this to me !?
moto gp 08 did this for 50G and didnt unlock for completing all challenges !?

i think i'll give this ago (above)

I guess I am not as immediately concerned with my completion %, so I'm just gonna go ahead and knock out the 900 for now. Once an update shows up, then I'll pop it in for the rest of it. For me, points are points, and 900 easy is almost as good as 1000 easy.

"yo dude just seen you got the full 1000 for cars race o rama? what did you do to unlock or did you somehow glitch it?? please message back."

Just a thought, have any of you tried creating your saved game on a memory card rather than the HDD? Would that make a difference? I am about to start playing this today.

Also, THQ made Juiced, and that game was glitched for acheivements on the PC version, and never got fixed, despite claims it would.

Well, 2 days later, and 900 Gamerscore.

I can confirm the following.
Game was saved on a Memory Card, not the hard drive (I thought I'd be different to see if it had any effect).
I played over 2 large sessions, ie not continuous.

No Achievement, game still says 100% complete in main menu, Boo!

On the shelf this game goes.

This is an issue we are aware of and even completed the game to confirm it here. Unfortunately we, like you will have to wait for the development team to produce an update to resolve this issue as it hinges on the game interacting with a service we have no control over (Xbox live).

I am sorry for an disappointment this response may cause but there is nothing that can be done at this time.

I am confused by their response to the problem. How does the achievement unlocking have anything to do with XBox Live? Granted if you are connected to Live, then you gamertag on Live will update once you unlock said achievement but the achievement itself has zero to do with Live. Sounds to me like they are full of shit! and trying to blame someone else on the complete and utter incompetence!

I don't understand why it has to anything to do w/Live as all offline achievements should be gainable even if you had non-live tags(the ones that aren't even silver type).

Would be too bad if its only 900 GS to get from it! :(

Has Anyone yet tried to Complete from 0 to 1000? Cause at mygamercard.net there are 15 People who have 1000 GS on this Game!

Have any of you that are not getting the last achievement used any of the cheats? They say they dont affect achievements, but maybe they do.

And vice versa, if you have NOT used the cheats, maybe if you do use them, they may unlock the last one.

Here they are FYI:

SLVRKEY Unlock All Arcade Mode Events
GR8MODS Unlock All Lightning McQueen Custom Kit Parts
EVRYBDY Unlock All of Lightning McQueen's Friends
CARSHOW Unlock All Paint Jobs for all Non-Lightning McQueen's Character
GOLDKEY Unlock All Story Mode Events

We have been made aware of this issue and it has been escalated however no definite solution has been made available at this time.

Apologies for any inconvenience.

Same here. Just completed it and yet again no 1000G achievable. Same thing happened with NFS Carbon achievement to win 50 duels. I hate this. You think you can rack up another 100% completion and disappointment hits you in the face yet again. Hope it gets fixed some day but as many have said already: don't hold your breath, it rarely gets any attention.

At this point, It's apparent they will NEVER fix this game.We can assume they have gotten tons of emails/calls about the problem, so they know there is an issue.With the responses they've given so far It seems like they dont care.

They already made their money,anything after the fact would cost them money/time they dont want to give,to an essentialy dead product.Theres nothing in it for them.All you can do as a consumer is not support them.Your calls and emails may say little but your WALLET is a bullhorn:rant::rant:

Sucks that they won't fix the glitch. Curious how some people have been able to get the last achievement while so many others can't.

JUST TO let you guys know , i've completed every race, won every race in 1st place inc kart, monster truck etc. completed all silver events. i've done this on 4 different gamer tags, a brand new account offline not hooked up to live, online with gold membership and silver, and the last on a profile where i installed an update then went offline till i completed. THE VERDICT IS........ all have 900gs. i must admit i flew through the game last couple times in like 4 hours, its enjoyable game, kart races are a nightmar to begin with, but once you have the knack its easy. anyway i've certainly got my money's worth from that game. don't count on an update, i know of gamers that have used modding software to unlock the 100gs, yet they still can get banned from live for it, even though we're being screwed over by the programmers.

Then someone else should make a patch that just unlocks the achievement immediately. All the patch has to so is make it pop, no other work involved. They could easily do it.
Btw, there's a new Cars game coming out only for the Wii. It's not like nobody's making Cars games anymore.

Think this says everything. As of 10/16/2010 there are 866 gamers on true achievements that have played the game, and ZERO of them have the final achievement. Pathetic!

Anybody else notice that in the new Marvel Super Hero Squad game by THQ there is a 100pt achievement called "Super Achiever!" which unlocks once all Heroic Feats are accomplished. Are they taking the piss?

I just beat this shitty glitchy game and I am 900 for it. I guess the years of people complaining went unheard. It is THQ after all, I am pissed but not surprised

I just got this game last week and played it all this weekend. I "finished" the game on 100% (game says so), but still need 1 photo op, the achievement for photo ops and off course the overachiever-achievement. I was thinking maybe you need to drive around more (I used the map to get from race to race) and special stuff will appear (I got something once during a photo op challenge, not sure what, but it unlocked something)... I'm gonna try tonight. Oh, and I did get an update, but not sure if it will help...

Okay, I've just gotten my last achievement (before the big over-achiever off course) and no unlock... as expected. BUT! I've been driving around in the locations and unlocking stuff like crazy by picking up all these lightning bolts. There are 3 different kinds as far as I can tell, normal black ones (worth 1000), silver ones (worth 10000) and red ones (unlocking something special)... and once every (i guess) 25000 points I unlock something... i'm gonna try and drive around some more on the several locations and see if this might be the secret to the very last achievement... It must be doable!!!!

edit: I just drove around a lot, and now have about 1.8 million points and no stuff unlocking anymore... I'm gonna try and do every race again and make sure I finish first on every one of them... If I get every little thing unlocked and still don't get the achievement I'm probably gonna burn the disc!

Over achiever works fine on PS3. It's the xbox 360 verison its glitched.

You are right... I gave up on the thought of maybe achieving the 100%... and put the game on my to-sell-pile. 900 GS is good enough for me!

You should technically count it as a completion even though it doesn't count officially :) I do hope they decide to patch this. I won't play it if they don't!

I put it off for the moment... I buy 1-3 new games every week, but since I have Cars I decided NEVER to buy ANY THQ game new until they fix it. I came back now to check whether I can preorder de Blob 2 for next week. Well, it seems no change here yet, so next week it will be Knights Contract. Well, THQ, I know I am only one customer, but I happily contribute to your financial losses until your business strategy includes quality again. Lets hope you get it done until Homefront or I am going to be one of the reasons it will flop.. :)

Really wish we could do something to make them hear us. Guess we will never see this game at a 1000gs :mad:

I hate glitched achievement games. You do all the hard work and nothing pops up.

Oh well. Always have to jump into forums and look around to make sure there aren't any glitches before buying new games.

Has anyone actually tried playing this start to finish on a dummy profile whilst NOT connected to LIVE? If they are going on about something to do with LIVE is that worth a try?

i did... didn't help at all

We all have written letters, made calls etc. THQ is purposely ignoring us and refusing to rectify this mistake. I think we should all ignore them the way they did our complaints and not buy any future releases until we get a patch on this. How could a company blatantly overlook this many people with an issue regarding one of their mistakes. THQ wont see another one of my hard earned dollars!

This is exactly how I feel. Once again we the consumers have been screwed and once again the company responsible won't man up. Fk THQ all day!

Okay I just called the US customer service number at THQ. (1-818-800-4563) I explained the whole situation and even quoted some of our comments we have written as well as my own. The guy was a total prick from the beginning of the conversation. He said the developer is to blame and he doesn't even know if they are still in business. He said "there will likely never be a patch". Just another classic case of publisher hiding behind developer yet reaping the profits.

personally, i say all of us that have the game to 900/1000 should just put it up as complete. especially since all of us have tried to get someone to fix this bs and no one will listen to us. just an idea :uzi:THQ

DarkJediHunter

I logically understand why "they" wont fix it. THQ is the publisher, so they can't -- and the developer won't, because there is no financial incentive to cover the development/QA from the publisher.

The only answer is to not purchase THQ products and be vocal about the reason, that they do not adequately manage quality from their developers.

This all sounds good, but won't make my son's 900 points look any better.
