Step 1 - Do Work
Start the game off on Normal, then as soon as you get the chance, pause the game and select "Lower Difficulty," earning you Our Little Secret. From here, start destroying any and all vases you see to work towards Anger Management. Once enemies begin to appear, start working on your combat achievements, which most of them can be unlocked fairly early in the game. Follow the Sarcophagus Collectible Guide (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/showthread.php?t=229270) during your playthrough; don't worry if you miss one, you can replay the game once you beat it and start over with your stats. There are only two achievements you won't unlock on your first playthrough, and those are: Prince of Tides and Completist. You should have 900http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg by the time you beat the game.

Step 2 - Prince of Tides
Once you beat the game, go for Prince of Tides. As stated in the Achievement Guide, the Enemy Tides challenge is a simple challenge if you utilize Stone Armor, as well as the plethora of vases around to replenish health and magic.

Step 3 - Completist
From here, you have two options if you didn't get Completist during Enemy Tides: (1) Do it again. (2) Replay the game. Your stats will carry over into a new game, so don't worry about losing them. If you didn't get certain combat achievements or didn't find all 21 sarcophagi, use this time to get them as well.

The Forgotten Sands is a very easy game to earn 1000http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg in, only if you plan ahead and keep tabs on all the combat related achievements; these make up the majority of the game - asides from story related achievements - so make sure you're not just cramming on the :xbut: button your entire adventure.
