I like the list. It looks easier then Part 1, in my opinion!
Only thing I don't like about this list. Is the fact there's challenge related achievements again. I hope you don't have to do multi-play throughs for the difficulty achievements. I'm happy to do at least 2 play throughs!

Hope someone could make a collectable guide as well. It would help the community out. I would make one myself, but I'm not very good at finding hidden secrets.

I think they look very simple and easy. I am just glad there is no Kinect for this one. I have all achievements on DH part 1 game except for the 4 kinect mission achievements. It is really annoying but glad I don't have to worry about it this time. I love the design for every achievement like the pictures the achievement represent. Really cool looking.

Alright, I just finished the game. Here's a few tidbits of info:

The difficulty achievements do stack this time. Unfortunately, you cannot start on the highest of the game's 3 difficulties from the get go. You must complete the story mode once before the 'expert' mode is available to play.

There is chapter select this time around, and it tells you how many collectibles there are to be had on a particular mission.

Unfortunately, the game is still a little bit... Bad. There are definite improvements, but there is so much repetition that you will go insane.

There is one section where you literally have to go through the same chase loop four times. No joke.

At least they made an effort to improve the combat, and all the spells are equally useful. There is a bit of strategy to using them this time too, as certain enemies react differently to various spells.

Have fun, and if you have any questions about the game I'd be happy to answer.

How do you beat the giant . in A giant problem ... my 5yr old son is having a really hard time

cheers for the heads up, i am pleased there is a chapter select at least, as i only missed 1 of each of the collectables last time and no way to go back and get them once I had slightly run past their location.

is it in any way hard? i normally play easy mode first, but for a HP game i could go harder from the start. I may not bother if you can do easy, unlock expert and then that gets you medium anyway.

There are some tough segments, but if you have some shooter skills, you shouldn't gets stuck on a section for more than 45 minutes. The hardest section I can remember was when I had to cross a 'U' shaped area in Hogwarts with 'snipers' spawning on the rooftops.

The hardest difficulty you can play on is the middle one to start off, so you'll know the levels by the time you hit it up on hard.

Good luck everyone :)

Anyone figure out a good place to do the "Stopped In Their Tracks" achievement? Any help will be much appreciated.

I got mine in the Gringotts level right before you get to the door where your defending Hermione. I found it easier than other levels cause they can't produce shields.

No need for help any more. Used xXx McClane xXx 's idea from another thread. Worked great for me. But thank you for trying to help AuroraAsters. Very much appreciated.

What's an easy way to get the Back to You... achievement. My protego shield never seems to kill the enemy.

Figured I'd run through this. I remember how easy the half blood prince achievements were.
