Just wanted to let people know that EA is shutting down the servers for Create (and several other games) on April 13th. I finished the game some time ago, but those out there who haven't done the online achievements (mostly voting on creations and uploading/downloading creations) should get them done ASAP.

Thanks TC. I have this game on my backlog, so I guess I'll have to complete it next. For convenience, can somebody post a list for all the online chievos?

Thanks for the heads up! I guess I'll be picking this game up. Do I need a boosting partner for the online achievements?

Which 14 achievements are the online Achievements?

No boosting partner needed...they are all easily done by yourself in about an hour.

These are the online achievements:

Solution Sharer
Pick a Pick
Pick of the Bunch
Challenge Wizard
Challenge King
Challenger
Fave Rave
Rise to the Challenge
Share and Share Alike
Radical Remix
Creation Craver
Top Marks
First Rate
Give Something Back

Pretty sure I got them all, but be sure to look at your checklist to confirm it. Anything involving uploading/downloading or rating content created by another user requires the EA servers.

Sweet, just unlocked all the online chievos. Only took a few hours, but you could do it in less if you were already familiar w/ all the menus & icons. For the remaining chievos, is there any advantage for being able to do them while the servers are still online? The only thing I can think of is having other ppl's solutions readily available.

Having the user solutions still available is actually a fairly big help - on the puzzles where I used solutions, I often found a better, less complicated solution in the user submissions than I did on YouTube.

Hmmm, should I still get it then? I don't want to play it in a hurry, and if I can't get any help from user solutions later down the road, I'd better not start it.

Kinetic Faith, I would recommend you do get this. They don't make many games like it and the eventual lack of user solutions shouldn't be a deterrent. I just 1k'd it using mostly youtube solutions and didn't have many problems at all. Of course like YoshiMiyamoto mentioned, there potentially may be better solutions available on the EA servers, but my point is, you shouldn't have any problem completing the single player achievements w/o them in the future.

I agree to get it regardless - this is a fun and unique game that shouldn't be missed. There's also really no need for heavy use of solutions, but if they are needed there will always be some type available - I just happened to find the users more helpful on my "trouble" puzzles. I probably used them on around 10 puzzles total, usually to get a missing spark.
