View Full Version : Good achievements on decent games?

02-12-2008, 07:39 AM
As above really, I'd never buy a lame game just for the achievements, but in the same respect I could be tempted into buying a game I don't know an awful lot about if the achievements are well worked or whatever, so any recommendations please guys?

Also, anyone else think it'd be great if on the game directory on this site you could rate the achievements and the game, and see which ones have a good balance? :)

Assassin's Creed has fun and easy achievements. So does Halo 3. That's all I can really think of at the moment. I think you could always just check out the reviews on the site, which rate the game and the achievements.

Many thanks; I already have Halo 3 but I think I'm going to get Assassin's Creed asap. Where are the reviews btw?

yeh assasins creed mate is such a great game the most you will get out of it would be about 800 - 900 but then you have to try to get 1000

1. Oblivion - Takes ages to get the 1250 but it's a good experience.
2. CoD 4 - Complete it on Veteran and get the Mile High Club and you've basically done it Online is out of this world =].
3. Fight Night Round 3 - It's awesome and a easy 1000.
4. Assassins Creed - it's an easy 500 and a gettable 800 good game aswell.
5. Tony Hawk AW - I liked it and I got a quick 800 off it.

Mass Effect as well its not an easy 1000 but its fun enough where you'll get the 1000 in a few play threws.

Halo 3 has some great achivements that will keep you hooked on the online and will make you want to do the campaign at least twice.

Nice one, thank you guys!

I've already got a few of the games mentioned (Halo 3, Call of Duty 4, Fight Night) and love them. I've already completed Oblivion and Call of Duty 2 on PC, but I'm tempted to get them on the 360 for the expansions and Veteran difficulty respectively.

Very tempted by Assassin's Creed and will no doubt pick it up when the price drops to 20 or so :-)

Thanks again

If following a guide, Bioshock is an easy 1100 in a minimum of 2 playthroughs, 1 if you are insane. It's a good game too.

I hear that the orange box has great game play and fun/hard/time-consuming achievements.....also....halo 3 probably has the best overall experience though.....because it is easy to play more or less.....and there aren't rediculous online achievements like 700 ranked wins....and it has only one or two maybe three tough ach.'s....the other achive's are pretty easy to get and still have TONS of fun....because they are campaign based...the others can come easily in online matches....I think that the hard ones are obviously the overkill....the terminals and maybe legendary....easily done with a party online co-op.......

I also like assassin's creed and skate.
