Achievements are up guys!!! :eek: --> http://www.xbox360achievements.org/achievements.php?gameID=393 (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../achievements.php?gameID=393)

And it's a poor list if you ask me, too many random achievements that take away from what the game should be.

Encouraging players to play left and right handed and playing with the controllers.

Well, I for one am disappointed. Discuss...

im not that dissappointed...and i think when it says standard controller it means the guitar...since it's only 5 points...the lefty flip achievements can be done on easy...i know im gonna have fun with this though...and i have very good friends online so i can't wait:woop:, and point distubution is a shateload better as well

I kind of like them except for the play with a normal controller ones. Thoses are just plain retarded. Kudos to the guys that can beat through the fire and flames on expert.

I only played the first one for like ten minutes when my friend came over one time, but that list is awful... They made a game where you get to play with a guitar, then force you to do the entire career with a controller? And force you to play with the wrong hand for an entire career? Win 500 online matches? What the hell were these jackasses thinking?

Yeah, you believe that... but you're wrong. The guitar isn't a standard controller, it's an X-Plorer. A standard controller is what you use for every other game.

It will be with a standard controller, I'm disappointed with the winning online matches! I like the idea of the co-op ones with 5* in each difficulty and doing the whole campaign co-op.

Dammit not one of those 'Beat a developer' ones. And the standard controller achievements are gunna be VERY hard. The online ones should not be hard at all since everyone will be playing. Those are my only cons though.

These achievements are a little whack, but it's nice to see them...Thanks Routine!

Thank God my lady is good with the controller, that's all she'll use. She can actually beat me on most expert songs with that damn controller, but I can beat her in anything with lots of strumming since it's harder to push the buttons that fast. Anyway I look at it, she can help me with these since she beat expert with the controller...

Love,

seems like an odd list, I like it except the normal controller cheevs, but they can all be done. "Beat a developer" will probably be like thpj8 where if anyone gets the cheev from the dev, you can get it from anybody by playing a match with that person and so on.

I gotta say i'm pretty dissapointed with those achievements. They really dont seem all that well thought out or fun. Granted I like guitar hero so much it's not just about the achievements, but still would have been nicer if they would have at least been good.

We can only hope this is not the final list ;) they've still got awhile before the game comes out... from what I recall the Halo 3 list was put up early but its not official, its begin re-vamped, I'm sure I read this some where but I could be wrong .

What the hell is wrong with these achievements? Beating Through the Fire and Flames is 15 points, lol.

And 500 wins? I said this before, if this game had a lot of online vs. achievements, I may not buy this game. 15 consecutive wins?? Play with the controller. Omfg.

Alright, I thought about it and it shouldn't be hard. The 'Beat a Developer' one is probably EXACTLY like THP8 since the SAME people made it (Neversoft). I got that achievement on my first xbl game. Those controller ones are still bothering me though.

Gold Star 20 Songs on Expert??? Wow, I can hardly FC any on hard....looks really tough.

What do you guys think?

I am slightly disappointed.
They added a lot of stupid achievements.
Like the controller achievements.
Its Guitar Hero not Controller Hero.
And the beat a creater achievement.
I always hated those kind of achievements.

These achievements look really hard. But at the same time i kind of like them. I don't know why lol. It just gives you more to do and gives you more replay value. I still can't wait to play this game though. Hopefully it'll be good.
Anyway, how come the forum link doesnt work?

Ghost x360a
08-22-2007, 02:14 AM
Im not really to happy about these achievements, and its because alot of them are extremely hard to get and dont offer many points. Like with the achievement for gold staring 20 expert songs, its only worth 30 GS! Also, the one for beating a developer looks impossible because with all the people that will be playing you have a very small chance of actually coming across a developer, and if you do you probably wont even beat them. And who is going to play this game that much to get 500 ranked wins?

I'm pretty disapointed at these achievments. But... i'm still gunna 1000/1000 the bitch. I really just hope rock band is better with their achievments... Seems like neversoft just took GH2's stripped some down and added their own flair, and I am kinda scared of beat a developer... those guys don't miss a note.

Ugly Achievements. I'm in the controller haters club as well. Granted it would be cool for just one song, but a whole career? Might as well have a joystick achievement to go along with it. And a creator achievement instead of a virus? Virus would seem so much more appropriate...given the rocker lifestyle.

And I seriously hope they don't pit us online with a "Trueskill" score, at least give us a chance in a lobby to challenge people and don't randomize us in hopes that it will fair.

I'm sure to get the game, but I won't be working for all the achievements.

does anyone else think that through the fire and flames is not going to be THAT difficult. i mean its going to be hard but im sure its not gonna be that hard. Kick the Bucket Award was worth 30 points and The Inhuman Achievement (beat through the fire and flames on expert) is worth only 15. just a thought...

Yeah, I agree that these achievements are disappointing. Too many co-op/online achievements for my taste... and the controller achievements... what's the point in that - especially on hard/expert.

How bout for The Orange Box achievement list:
Win 10 ranked matches using the Xplorer controller

And for Burnout Paradise:
Beat the game using the Rock Band drumset

Oh well. I'll still buy it, love it, and play it nonstop along with RockBand.

I dont know how many of you guys noticed this but I honestly laughed out loud when I saw it. In GHII the achievement "The Long Road Ahead" is to fail a song on easy, the easiest achevment in the game IMO. But in GHII the achievement "The Long Road Ahead" is to Complete all difficulties in Career, buy everything from the shop and complete 100 online matches. Lol, a bit more work this time. Ovall I like the achievements better even though the non-guitar ones will suck. I am very happy about ONLINE though, now we can do co-op and battles with all our virtual friends! WARNING TO J LO... I'm going to whip your ass in online battles. O boy i'm excited for this game!

No, Apache's doing co-op with me! Back off! :p

It's not that hard, especially when you're a lefty like me. :p

i think when you get 5 stars on a song the color is gold...hopefully...and i sure as hell would play enough to get 500 wins;):drunk

Doesn't gold star usually mean to 100% a song? If so, that is going to be a very hard achievement.

Okay, enough quoting.

I don't see what all you guys are bitching about. I agree with Apache by saying these achievements, although harder, is a very well constructed achievement list. Sure, some of them might be hard/annoying/time consuming, but that's what keeps you playing the game. Seriously, what's so bad about these achievements? Most are quite easy. Also, how can you be mad with co-op and online achievements? I am very happy with this list.

I prsonally think these are the worst achievements Ive seen in a while. Im not gonna lie, Im not the greatest at this game, but At my current skill level, I think I could put 100 hours into the game and come out with 90 points? The achievements are ridiculous, what were they thinking? wtf? At least they dont have "Buy 2 songs for $6 real money!"

WTF!!?

08-22-2007, 03:03 PM
i have to say i am liking these achievements it makes people practice to beat expert not beat easy and come out with the same amount of points and also makes me glad that i practiced with the controller for GH2 cant wait for this game to come out and try for the 1000 just hope rock band will be challenging as well

JJBDude
08-22-2007, 03:17 PM
I don't get it, are you all complaining because the achievements are time consuming or what? I look at these achievements and I see same as what GH II had to offer but there are more added for a bonus. They have added some interesting ones in like using whammy bar everytime and stuff, I like that and put together with the general completion ones witch GH II had the list is great! I won't deny that they have probably gone overboard with the standard controller ones, but otherwise I think the list is excellent. I'll be spending 100's of hours getting these. :D

These achievements are going to be hard I am not very good at GHII but I have spent alot of time playing it. I am really looking forward to the co-op career. But the whole career with a controller is terrible. I do not think very many people will be able to get 1000 pts in this very challenging

Daggermn
08-22-2007, 04:18 PM
This looks like one of the most challenging list of achievements so far on a game. I know for some of you guitar hero gods out there this will be a walk in the park, but for the average gamer, we won't be able to get even half of them. I thought that guitar hero II was hard. I'm not even close to completing that one and I dont think that there are ny more achievements on that game I will be able to get, I am not skilled enough even to do hard. As for the achievements though, I am not mad at them. I welcome the challenge and the fun trying to get them. I think they are very original too. I wish that the achievements were worth more. I see a lot of them at 10pts, 20pts or lower. This will make getting a good gs for this game very hard. I am still going to buy it as I'm sure it will still kick ass. I will just have to let my gamer score ratio drop a little bit. Oh well.

I guess these achievements aren't too bad, although there are definitely a few that I think are just stupid (play with a controller).

I accept that I will probably never 1000 a GH game, so the fact that there are really hard achievements doesn't bother me too much. I am looking forward to some of the quirky achievements though, like whammy all held notes and the left flip achievement.

I hope the online play is smooth, or people are in for a world of hurt for those achievements. :)

TacticalChaos15
08-22-2007, 05:40 PM
WOW, these have got to be some of the crazzzzziest achievements ever. Did anyone else notice how just about every achievement is relatively low in points ( it because they have 59 achievements). This is going to consume most of my time this winter (along with Halo3 and assassins creed). This is going to be cool, playing as the guns n roses dude will be cool ( axel or slash?) and online is going to be the best thing ever ( if they get it right). Not to mention the achievements are actually intresting and challenging( for the most part, unlike GHII). Wow, cant wait , the wireless guitar is freaking sweet ( even though real guitars have the amp cord anyway).


PS how much do you think they will milk us for the guitar faceplates?

08-23-2007, 02:26 PM
The great thing about the achievements in GH2 is that you played the game, the fantastic game that everyone loved, and along the way you picked up the achievements. this retarded list of crap is just gimmicky. i know we've established the controller ones are stupid, but stuff like get '200k without star power on cult of personality' imo, is just achievements for the sake of achievements. gh2 had a great list (i don't have anywhere near all of them, but i enjoy working towards them)
but who am i kidding, i've already paid off my preorder, so i'll be playing the piss out of it, so i should just shut up and take it :mad:

Some look hard but I still think I'll be able to get around 800 points if not more. I have 760 in GH2 and I could definitely break 850 if I put some more time into it. As for people saying oh some of these look time consuming. Well... I don't know about you guys but I expect to put lots and lots of hours into GH3 regardless of the achievements. It's going to be a very fun game just like GH2.

I really think that they're trying to get back at us for that glitch that alot of ppl used to get 5 stars on expert, beating jordan, etc. how can they even have 59 achievements? the rules microsoft made are that a game can only have 50 achievements and 1000G unless bonus content is available, which can boost the achievements to 60 and gamerscore to 1250G... Guitar Hero 3 just broke that concept and now im sure this will encourage games to have more than 50... imagine a game with 100 achievements for 1000G..... =(

Juiced was the first game to produce a achievement list of 60 with 1000 score, Guitar Hero III did it next. I'm not too sure on the ruling but I believe what has happened is allowed, I'm not complaining that we are given 9 more achievements for free. :D

Yeah, it was a new Microsoft ruling. It's supposed to allow developers to have more freedom when they create their list.

The great thing about the achievements in GH2 is that you played the game, the fantastic game that everyone loved, and along the way you picked up the achievements. this retarded list of crap is just gimmicky. i know we've established the controller ones are stupid, but stuff like get '200k without star power on cult of personality' imo, is just achievements for the sake of achievements. gh2 had a great list (i don't have anywhere near all of them, but i enjoy working towards them)
but who am i kidding, i've already paid off my preorder, so i'll be playing the piss out of it, so i should just shut up and take it :mad:

Achievements are supposed to be hard, and a good achievement list doesn't just give em to you as you play through a game. You should have to go out of your way to get the majority of the tough ones.

As for me, I'm going to start on Easy playing Lefty, and then use the controller for Medium. Then I'll use my guitar for Hard, Expert, and all co-op difficulties. This'll be the best way to knock all of them out without having to play through multiple times on the same difficulty.

I'd guess that most of the people complaining about these achievements don't really enjoy playing Guitar Hero, they're just getting it for easy achievements, like they probably did with GH2. If you're actually a huge fan and can't stop playing Guitar Hero, then this list is a blessing.

I agree w/ Buttcrack, the list is great for anyone who actually likes the game. The standard completion ones will be challenging, and the whammy on every note in NotB, etc. will add a little spice and give the game a little more replay value.

Reminds me of the Dead Rising achievements.

For the "Beat the game on Hard or Expert using a standard controller" achievement, I'm playing it through on Hard getting like 3 stars lol....like somebody said before, it's called Guitar Hero...playing with a controller doesn't make you one (well neither does playing a guitar simulator, but using the controller is ridiculous)..

At least there is online play, so the co-op achievements will be easier to get. None of my friends are as good as me, so the co-op achievements on GH2 were impossible, which isn't fair....

Dragonforce will be awesome...I'm pretty sure I can get the 3 star power activations achievement...and hopefully i can get thru it on expert...at least there's no "5 star it on expert" b/c that would ruin many people's chances of getting 1000 GS...I'm such a guitar freak, and it would make me sad if i couldn't get the 1000 GS...

Playing through career with lefty flip is ridiculous also...why would you force a righty to play with the wrong hand for that long? The one song thing on GH2 wasn't bad, but it was still a dumb achievement (all you had to do was play a ridiculously easy song). I don't think turning that one song thing into a whole career makes it any better....Just let me play through the game with a guitar controller right-handed, with online play for co-op partners and I'll be set!...

I just remembered about the secrets too...hopefully it isn't the nightmare of Through The Fire And Flames 5 star =[

For the "Beat the game on Hard or Expert using a standard controller" achievement, I'm playing it through on Hard getting like 3 stars lol Man, I can't even play one song on Hard with the controller. I've tried in GH2 and it's just so unnatural. I even tried Psychobilly Freakout on Medium with it and it destroyed me. Good thing something like Psychobilly isn't in GH3...at least I hope not.


Also, the 3 secrets:

The 0 probably has to be the "Fail a Song on Easy" one, except they got smart and didn't give it points this time.

As for the other two I don't know. Originally I thought the 3 secrets were to beat the bosses because there's 3 battles, but then I realized there was a 0 point one.


Hey just thought that it would be nice to point out the the "Now That's Impressive" achievment has the 1mill sign on it but the description says 750k. LOL. :^)
Also yeah what's with the description being 750k and the picture is 1mil?

ha just recently started playing ghII, but on the ps2, lol, probably because i cant handle it yet, but i dont think any game should have more than 50 achievements. i agree that achievements should make you go out of your way but some of these are just unnecessary, like the controller and lefty flip. plus, again, we have another sequel with pretty much a mock achievement list from its predecessor. boooo.

Not a fan of most of the achievements in GH3.

Call me crazy but I liked the 'natural progression' achievements in GH2. The ones that rewarded you for beating difficulty levels, 5-stars, getting streaks and so on.

Most of these new achievements seem ass backwards. I'm surprised Neversoft isn't asking us to play blindfolded with our feet for 7 achievement points.

10-14-2007, 03:16 PM
I think they suck, many that takes faaar to long for very few points. And many is just to damn hard. Sure some should be hard so you have to be reeeal good to get 1000 but this list :confused: Most are just aimed for the GH pros.

Im still stuggeling with GH2 and if I buy this it sure wont be to get achievement points :p Counted and I think I could get about 160 points, I have 420 on GH2 (Don't have a good co-op player)

Seriously, I'd almost rather not have them. I would honestly be happier being able to buy a version without the achievements than have to put up with crap like that on my gamertag. If Rockband is as awesome as I hope it is, I may not even glance at GH4.

Hmm, not loving the achievement details. A lot of random requests like playing left and righty as well as playing with the controller. Also a lot of hard looking one. 5 star all songs on co-op as well as in career on expert? Seems near impossible to me.

hey tonyeck - niiiiiice one with the secret achievements!!!

i'm definately going to try and get those tonight then, gotta practice up on expert so i know i'm gonna fail something along the way 10 times, haha!

thanks for the heads up!

Right now i'm working on co-op with the gf (i'm playing on lefty, she's playing righty) just finished that last night, and going to run through it again to finish up 5 stars on righty to see if you can get the Hendrix Reborn achievement on co-op.

Let me know if you have any luck with any other achievements!

For those going for Hendrix Reborn: it looks like you have to beat the same difficulty twice, one for lefty and one for righty. I just beat easy using only the lefty flip and didn't get anything. Going back through on default now. God dammit. :(

I'm not exactly thrilled with the achievements for GHIII. Really not a whole lot of points dished out for the single player and well a good majority just look very difficult to obtain. And honestly why the hell are there achievements for playing with a 360 controller? That is just lame. That said this game still rules and hopefully in time I'll at least be able to get half of the points. I really doubt I'll be able to get much more then that.

i just got Hendrix Reborn, so i can clarify some things: first you DO NOT have to beat the SAME difficulty twice. i beat hard with default flip and then easy with lefty flip and got the achievement straight away.

Apparently, the beat hard or expert career with a controller achievement is glitched/broken. A person on scorehero.com says he beat hard/expert with a guitar and then restarted his 360, with his Les Paul turned off, turned on his regular controller, went into his career and it unlocked. Can anyone confirm this and try it out? I've only beaten medium.

Probably all of the ones that don't have to do with the campaign.

Ex: Beat co op career, beat is as lead, beat it as backup

So im sure you can do the streaks and score ones online

Hey all. First post here. Been lurking for a couple months. Love the site.

Medo...I was playing co-op last night with my gf and I noticed the same thing. I got the achievements (on 1p) and she didn't. She was 2p and using the controller. Don't know if either of those things would effect it. But she wasn't too happy and I don't blame her. That's bs if we have to go through each co-op career mode twice to each get the achievements.

Hey, Im new to this site too. I love it. Its a great help. I found out that if you use the Cheat code that (unlocks everything) or something like that it only unlocks all the bonus tracks, but I didnt buy any of the bonus tracks before and after I entered the cheat it gave me the achievement for buying all the songs. So I guess you can get a free achievement that way and still save some money.:)

I've heard there's a glitch to get achievements like beat TtFaF and beat Expert and so forth. Anybody have any insight to it? Apparently it was also in GHII and ISN'T the practice mode glitch.

I have an epic inner conflict going on, as I want the achievements and the guitars but in no way have any possible chance of unlocking them. :\

Earn them legitimately. Then you'll actually feel a sense of pride when you unlock the achievements. Once you glitch, you can't go back. Anyways, for Enlightened Guitarist, is that really what I think it is? FC 20 songs in Expert? That's fucking ridiculous. Unless the songs are a lot easier to FC than Guitar Hero II's.

I think they could have done alot better with these achievements. You can't have a job in order to get good enough to get half of these achievements! I understand that it is possible for someone to beat TTFAF on expert, but not many can, so why make 2 achievements for it? The song makes me cry! I agree with everyone else as well...What is the point of making achievements for the normal controller, other than taking away points you could have used for good achievements?

I have a couple questions about this achievement:

1. If you play some of the songs on Righty Flip and some of the songs on Lefty Flip, but you still play all of the songs on either Lefty Flip or Righty Flip, can you still get the achievement?

2. When going for this achievement, do you have to do lefty and righty on the same difficulty?

3. Do you need to 5 star all of the songs?

When playing Easy, I did the Guitar Battle vs. Lou, Number of the Beast, and Hit Me With Your Best Shot on Lefty Flip. Then, my mom did the rest of the Easy Career on Righty Flip, including the three songs I did on Lefty Flip. Once she beat the entire career, I didn't get the achievement. Before we finished Easy Career, I finished Hard Career on Lefty Flip. Does this achievement need to be in the same difficulty, or since I played those three songs on Lefty Flip it is impossible for me to get the achievement? Also, do the songs need to be 5 starred because my mom still needs to 5 star Raining Blood on Easy and I still have a few songs to 5 star on Hard.

Thanks in advance,

Guitar Hero 3 just broke that concept and now im sure this will encourage games to have more than 50... imagine a game with 100 achievements for 1000G..... =(


You do know that "Half Life 2: The Orange Box" has 99 achievements for 1000G, right?

I have a couple questions about this achievement:

1. If you play some of the songs on Righty Flip and some of the songs on Lefty Flip, but you still play all of the songs on either Lefty Flip or Righty Flip, can you still get the achievement?

2. When going for this achievement, do you have to do lefty and righty on the same difficulty?

3. Do you need to 5 star all of the songs?

When playing Easy, I did the Guitar Battle vs. Lou, Number of the Beast, and Hit Me With Your Best Shot on Lefty Flip. Then, my mom did the rest of the Easy Career on Righty Flip, including the three songs I did on Lefty Flip. Once she beat the entire career, I didn't get the achievement. Before we finished Easy Career, I finished Hard Career on Lefty Flip. Does this achievement need to be in the same difficulty, or since I played those three songs on Lefty Flip it is impossible for me to get the achievement? Also, do the songs need to be 5 starred because my mom still needs to 5 star Raining Blood on Easy and I still have a few songs to 5 star on Hard.

Thanks in advance,

~J Lo

dude this is a pretty easy achievement, and i have a technique for playing that completely eliminates all the ridiculousness from it. Like, I beat the game on easy to get it out of the way so i would never have to play on easy again, then i started a new band so i could do easy again, cause other wise you wont get the achievement if your doing the lefty flip on a previously done career so start a new band and the career will be reset for easy and just play through, you dont have to get five stars, you dont have to do every song, and you dont have to play through the credits, almost right after you beat lou it will give it to you.

I have been trying the whole time that i have had this game to get the 250,000 points on a song achievement. I have done the soical destruction song and got 245,000 with 100% on medium, The metallica song got the same but not 100% on medium and Dragon force on easy and got the same. It seems like the game is tryng to give 245,000 on every song that it is possible. any one know how to get it.

For the get 200k on Cult of Personality, is it on any difficulty. Cuz I can 170K on Expert and 190K on hard with missing 6 or 7 notes in the 2nd solo. so i want to know which i should work on.

If you can do 170K on Hard you got it.

There is a part at the end where it stops, and you think the song is over, but then it keeps going. You are actually allowed to use Star Power at that point. I did it on hard and used star power then and got the achievement right away.

Let me know if this works for anyone else.

Distortion. Social Distortion.

There's a few songs one medium you can get 250,000+ on... Story of My Life, Cherub Rock, Stricken, Knights of Cydonia and One.

Hell, according to Score Hero, the top score for One on medium is over 366,000... so you wouldn't even need to be perfect for that one.

If you do this with a friend and play all the songs as lead guitar will your friend unlock the bass one aswell? and you only have to play the set list? or all of the bonus as well

I'm wondering because "That's What Friends Are For" only unlocked for the primary account.

By Platium Streaker I assume you mean Streak Master (Earn a 1000 note streak in Career or Quick Play). That being said...

TtFaF on easy is the easiest one to get this achievement on....it took me a couple of tries (934 and 980 streaks :mad:) but I eventually got it. Another one you can try is One on medium, but the solo is pretty fast picking.

I would recommend practicing from the solo on in One if you are going to try that out. Good luck.

Anyways I tried One. I'm not gonna bother with that solo, so I'll just keep trying TtFaF, just got a 900 something streak then had an irresistable itch on my nose

Hey guys, I just got the 'Meet your Maker' in an online co-op game. The guy I was playing with had it, and when the song was finished it unlocked for me. I guess this doesn't have to be done in battle or face off.

RevenantSeraph
11-09-2007, 02:10 AM
Nope. "Meet Your Maker" is viral - if you play with someone who's got it, and beat them in even one song of a set, you get it too. Convenient. Not quite sure how you could get it through Co-op, though...

This might have been addressed earlier, but my brother and I are playing through Co-op for the Guitar/Bass achievements, and while we're nowhere near finishing those yet, no matter what we do, how we change things around, he's the only one getting achievements when we play.

However, when he plays with his son, they both get them.

Anyone have a solution to this? We've tried:

-Fresh Career
-Both of us in both player slots (1p and 2p)
-Differing difficulties and same
-Activating my accounts Gold subscription (on the off chance that had something to do with it)

Getting a little irritated with trying to figure out what the deal is - I figured I'd ask where there's good chances of someone knowing. (Well, ScoreHero might know too...but they're snobs over there. Srsly.)

Any tips for where/what parts of Raining Blood to use SP and which parts I should work on? I can get 169 K so far, but need like 6,000 more. Hopefully I can do it once I try with my Les Paul, been trying with GH 2 controller so far, and am much better with Les Paul. Tips for Raining Blood PL0X!!! Oh and I found Hyperspeed 1 to be really helpful for this song.

Hmm, what difficulty?

But anyway, I'd say use it the first time you get it. Then get what SP you can until the semi-repetitive chords in the middle of the song.

After that I don't think you can get enough, unless you hit all the paths and use it at the ending crazy solo.

Mr Hey
11-09-2007, 02:29 AM
On Hard.
I've been saving it up until the part right after Mosh 1, and then I use it all. I havent been able to hit the first two (and then the one after the mosh with the chords) so far, but I think using it during those chords is the best part since I can 100% that little section and am not too good at the intro (I can get through the Mosh without Star Power easily BTW)

I did the same thing. I ended up getting 100% on Story of my Life (medium) 8 or 9 times before I finally got 254k. It is all about when you use your star power and wammy any note you can. One time I literally got 249,976 points. I was so mad.

Just a friendly little warning i discovered pertaining cheat codes.

If you are using certain ones, achievements will still unlock.

for example. if you use the unlock everything cheat, even just to see what things look like (knowing you may never be able to finish even hard difficulty) you will get the achievements for buying things from the shop. which will then look wierd if you haven't even finished medium yet.

Just a little warning. (mostly cause something like this could make it look like you gamesave or something when you dont.)

If me and a buddy want to play ONLINE co-op, do we still get achievements? I'm kind of confused about all this talk about not getting achievements or something about only one person getting them when they unlock.

Can anyone clear this up for me? We want to play through Easy to Expert and pretty much get all of the achievements we can. For example: Dynamic Duo, Medium Duo, Leader of the Pack and other achievements like that.

Thanks.

trust me dude, it took me fucking 5 hours to get it right. i ended up turning it off and sleeping some. when i awoke again, i tried it, and it was so easy. i just got the first power up and used it when the really fast part of his comes and boom, i beat'em. i figured i'd fail the part that says 'now finish him', but i didn't. just keep tryin' though, i guess.

you need to do it in solo. no coop. my question is i played thru hard coop career and played as lead guitarist the whole time. and the Guitar wizard achievement didnt unlock. Do you have to complete all 4 coop careers as the lead guitarist? or did i miss one....

Do they have to be consecutive "with the controller" or can I use the guitar in between?


For example could you win two with the controller, get bored because it's a stupid achievement, use the guitar for a while and then do a couple later? As long as you never lose with the standard controller?

if you use the unlock all cheat and go into the store all the store related achievements will unlock. also if you use the unlock all cheat and fail TTFAF or maybe fail just any song the Enlightened Guitarist will unlock as well.
for many people this is either a blessing or a curse. simply many people on this site want to get their achievements legit, yet others just want the points.

for beat the creator you need to beat someone who already has the achievement.

in the guitar hero 3 forum you can find a list of all who already have this achievement and you can contact them and say you would like to get it from them.....but if you play and beat alot of people online you will probably get it within a few songs as quite a few people have that achievement now.

quick question.. if u use star power at the very end of Cult of Personality, and its still active when the song ends, and u get 200k, will u get the achievement i kno it says u will under guide for the game, but i was just curious... BTW 197k W/o Star power =D

J Lo
11-30-2007, 11:39 PM
After the pause in the song at the very end, I used my starpower and got 205k and got the achievement, so the answer is yes, you can use the starpower at the very end of the song.

Now onto my question:

I have a question about the Long Road Ahead Award. Just recently, I beat Expert (my last career.) That's 1 out of 3 tasks complete. On GuitarHero.com, it says I've played over 200 matches. That would be 2 out of 3 tasks complete. Finally, I used a cheat code so it would give me everything from the store, which would be the third task. Unfortunately, I didn't get the achievement.

My questions are:

1. Does it have to be 100 ranked matches played or can it just be 100 games played online?
2. Do you have to win the games?
3. Do you have to actually buy everything from the store or can you actually use the cheat code to get the achievement?

*NOTE* When I entered the cheat code, I got the 5 achievements for buying all characters, songs, outfits, guitars, and everything from the store.

Thanks in advance,

To answer you and J Lo's question I'm nearly 100% positive it does have to e ranked but you do no have to win. And yes using the codes still lets you get it because i used them as well. It might also help to add that you do not have to win 100 matches just complete them because i got the achievement on a match that i lost :woop:

Well the friend that you are talking about, probably got someone to second profile glitch it for him, only because he probably sucks at games and cannot beat it by himself. So what you are seeing is just a glitch.... Do not ask about or how to do the glitch! If you really want to know, go search it up;)

Can the co-op achievements be earned by playing online? Cos if not - That seriously sucks. Id like to earn them by playing with mates when I get this game.

sorry if this has already been discussed, but i beat the game with lefty and righty but not get the achievement..any ideas?

go search the threads, there is one called "Hendrix Reborn confirmation"...

i just got Hard Duo tonight. aka 5 star all Hard coop songs. now my buddy and I have 2 left on expert....Number of the Beast and Raining Blood. I checked scorehero.com for 5 star cutoffs but they arent listed. We scored 606,000 on The Beast. Anyone here have it 5 starred that on expert with a score close to mine? any help is appreciated.

I personally think they should once they release enoug DLC. Here are some of my ideas for achievements:

Beat "The Devil Went Down to Georgia" on Expert.
(the actual song, not the Lou battle)

Complete all bonus tracks.
(the list with TTFAF in it)

Complete Bonus Teir 9 on Easy.

Complete Bonus Teir 9 on Medium.

Complete Bonus Teir 9 on Hard.

Complete Bonus Teir 9 on Expert.
(if they release a bonus teir with a possible new boss battlle)


Ok those are some of my ideas, your input? Maybe some of you have some ideas for achievements?

I'm still clueless on why I did not get this achievement yet. I have beaten all 4 difficulties, on GuitarHero.com, it says I've played 280 matches, 173 of them being wins, and I used the cheat for buying everything from the store. Does anyone have any idea on why I do not have this achievement yet?

~J Lo Have you played Co-op online? That counts as a match and is also counted as a win if you get the most points. Like I've played 103 matches. 4 of them being co-op. I'll see if I get it with my 100th online match.

Is this correct? Me and J Lo have played many gaming online together and co-op makes up the majority of my online games... Do I have to have 100 wins in battle/face off/pro-face off for this achievement?

I am not quite sure what you are saying but I will try to clarify with an example.

Player X has completed all career difficulties and bought everything. He has played 50 co-op matches online and has had the higher score in 25 of them. He has also won 20 battle mode games and lost 5. Also he has won 25 pro-face off games. Total he has played 100 games online, will he get the achievement, or will he need to play 50 more Vs. type games?

Oh sorry if my post was a bit fuzzy :P

You just need to play 50 more games (pro face off, face off and battle), you don't have to win them. The Co-op matches won't count towards the achievement. I'm pretty sure that is the case. I'll elucidate that tomorrow. If I don't get it on my 100th match(the Co-op I've played not included) tomorrow it's definitely glitched.

EDIT: BTW, my english isn't really flawless. Probably because English is my second language. So thanks for NOT flaming me. If you can't understand what the heck I'm talking about, just ask. I hope this isn't a huge problem. I've been talking english for ages now, but sometimes it's not that great. Well, I'm at least trying. ;)

I come baring bad news :rolleyes:...

The wife and I were working on an Easy Co-op career, 5*'ing everything down the line. We got to three songs left and she was dying of boredom (how could you not?) and we were just going to come back to them. Flash forward and I'm checking out the Rocker Review feature on guitarhero.com. I notice I have some scores for the Expert Co-op songs which I've only done online (the misses isn't at that level....yet...a rigorous routine of raw eggs in the morning and Raining Blood should remedy that). But then a light bulb goes off. If those Expert Co-op scores are counting, then I can test if I can get the 5* all Easy co-ops by getting them online. Unfortunately, after 5*'ing the three songs I didn't get the achievement :mad:. But I can confirm you can get the backup achievement online. It just sucks you have these four achievements only possible through same-box Co-op.

so I just finished my easy career with lefty flip on. I got the beat easy achievement and that was it. I only did 3/4 songs in each tear and missed 5 stars on 2 or 3 songs. I have also completed the game on righty on hard and medium. Why did I not get the achievement? Can somebody please tell me what they did to help with glitchy Hendrix?

Unfortunately you have to complete the same difficulty both righty and lefty for the achievement. So go beat easy right handed and you should get it, well thats what i did anyway ;).

:mad: I... hate... playing... on... EASY!!!!!! O well :( thanks for the help. Should I just go back through and do 3 songs in each tier on the same band that I already beat it on, or start a new band?

Yes I started a new band to do it on lefty, to make sure i got the story cutscenes so that it definitely counted. So yes start a new band and do it righty.

The only thing is i did mine righty first, then started a new band to do lefty, you are doing it the other way around, but it should still work if you get what i'm trying to say, im confusing myself its like 3.30 am :p.

Oh and yes only doing 3 songs per tier definitely works.

Im new to these games and i think the achievements are rediculous ive only got 10 gamerscore. The game is far to hard even on easy and i just play it for fun.

Activision should take a leaf out of PGR 4 developers book and make the easier achievements with more gamerscore and harder ones with a lower gamerscore that way everyone one has fun and gets some points. That was the best achievement list ever exept obviously Avatar...

Weirdest thing happened last night.

I was playing co-op (medium) with this guy, he picked Even Flow, I chose Cliffs of Dover, and he picked One as the last one.
We played Even Flow all right, I missed some notes here and there... But at the newspaper screen it said 100% notes hit o_o
So the guy got the "100% a co-op song" and the "500 streak on a co-op song" achievements all together.
Then we played Cliffs of Dover, and at some parts his Star Power would last WAY too much, while my screen would be normal (the multiplier case kept blinking from 4x to 8x or 3x to 6x and etc).
We went to play One, finished it... Then I went to check his profile I saw he had earned the "500k on a co-op song" achievement, but I hadn't O_o
I asked him about it, and he said we'd gotten 500k on One.

Now what the hell is wrong?

quick question...for the long road ahead achievement, do i have to win 100 matches or just play 100 matches?? Can the be regular or must they be ranked? Can I just go play battles and instantly fail myself to make it quicker?? thanks

I personally don't know but you can try what I did.

Select the song on easy, and push the whammy bar all the way down with your palm, hold it there, and play the song normally. Make sure you hit all the held notes, and ta-da!

Just tape it down. I dont know, you must have missed one. On easy there are little long notes...If you missed them you wont get it.

Has anyone else not been able to unlock the achievement? I've beaten One 3 times, each over 600,000 and i still can't get it. I've done lead and rhythm but nothing. Any suggestions?

And you don't have to 100% the song, just make sure you hit the long notes.
Plus, I got annoyed with my Les Paul (GH3) guitar and switched to my X-Plorer (GH2) guitar and got it first try. Just an FYI.

I am slightly disappointed.
They added a lot of stupid achievements.
Like the controller achievements.
Its Guitar Hero not Controller Hero.
And the beat a creater achievement.
I always hated those kind of achievements.

ya it sucks and if anyone can explain me the never gonna spend it all achievement do you have to save the money or can you spend it.
