I played this game an extremely long time ago and i must say it sucks. In my opinion anyway.

02-14-2007, 12:36 PM
I bought it and it's pretty bad :(

02-14-2007, 12:53 PM

I used to love this game back in the day. Well my refresher course went well, finished 11 of 12 achievements in a "liquid refreshment enhanced" state of mind I'll come back later today and get the finish one week of easy street to complete the game

02-14-2007, 02:53 PM
Its pretty easy for achievements

I got 7 or 8 out of 12, and have yet to attempt Hard Way, or even really focus on them.

Ive never played the game in my life before, And I found it very fun, I like it :)

I got it on middle road or whatever it's called the guy i was doing the co-op with got it on hard way. The achievement pops as soon as you break the 30 windows it took me several attempts to get it

02-14-2007, 09:39 PM
I remember playing this on the NES. Fun times and easy achievements.

02-14-2007, 10:40 PM
Is the smasher achievement Cumulative, so it adds both of yours, or is it solo?

Because Today, It seems as though me and someone on live got 20 each a couple of times on the same day, and nothing...

And if its solo, Does it matter on what houses? Black and Others? Just Black? Just Coloured?

The achievement has to be done on co-op but is independant of your partner. All windows count but only windows. doors sadly don't count as windows even if they have a window in them. easy strategy go slow if you run out of papers die and respawn. You do not need to complete the day as the achievement pops as soon as you hit 30

so is this game worth getting... what do you guys think?
i kno its only 400 MS points but is there much replay value on it once u get the achievements? and how is the gameplay on the 360 compare to the original.

1st off, I *heart* paperboy. I wrapped up all of the XBOX Live achievements (no boosting required) and started on the single player one.

It sucks that at least one of my offline achievements is glitched (deliver 7+ papers on the first day of "Hard". I've done that about ten times and nothing. And, no, I didn't alter the settings.

Game plays just like it did on the Midway XBox Compilation, which, if you haven't noticed, costs about five times as much to buy piecemeal on XBOX Live as it did when Midway shoved twenty odd games on one XBOX disc.

Oy, the price of achievements and live play.

i've got 9 outta 12 so far...digging paperboy 'cause my girl is actually giving it a chance too.

was wondering if anyone got the "racer boy" achievement yet? & if so any pointers? i'm a little confused myself on the description. 5 papers all to the same house in 60 seconds or just deliver to 5 houses total?

02-15-2007, 04:48 AM
I'll post an achievement guide tonight.

I'll post an achievement guide tonight.

rad! thanks a ton!

Excerpt from my achievement guide- in case it doesn't get accepted or someone beat me to it:

Racer Boy 25 points

Racer Boy is actually very simple. You have to deliver five papers and then get through the stage in 60 seconds. I recommend that you get the first five houses out of the way and then speed like hell through the second half of the map. You donít have to complete the bonus section. In fact, I just ran into an obstacle once I made it into obstacle course.

You can die and still unlock this achievement but if you die twice- you probably will not make it. I died once and got it done in about 50 seconds.

thnx again! perfect description. got it on my 1st attempt.
