You'll have to play the game through, twice at least for most of the offline achievements. They're all pretty easy anyways just long (but fun imo, playing Hard Boiled right now).

It's really possible, get a boosting partner for the online achievements though but they'll go also fast (2-3 hours for 'em all if you're really at it I think...).

Hard is pretty hard, you can't go all moviestyle and do cool stuff (like in mega restaurant, go on the dragons in the casino hall, because that'll get you killed instantly by the rain of bullets). Hard boiled is pretty much same thing only your tequila bombs last even less long and you die faster. I think personally HB is about as hard/harder than COD4 on veteran, but it's not really comparable (although I finished veteran in a few days, this game is taking me longer).

Some parts in the game are going to be a pain in the ass (sinking Tai O drug ships, boss battles) but it can still be really enjoyable. Just find the right spots on where to kill people and be very cautious.

Hard Boiled is tough. As has been said you need to stay in cover, pop out in slow motion, take ppl out, then back into cover. All the dives and special moves go out the window because it becomes a tactical shooter.

this game is a big pain in the ass on hard boiled. I am just taking it one chapter at a time, one section at a time.

Hard boiled is not really hard, you just need some patience, pattern recognition will help a lot because everything is scripted. And remember to stay away from doors, because enemies use to spawn from here. Play FEAR-style: use slomo in short bursts with RB, don't bother with the fancy stuff. You can unlock every SP achievement in 2 playthroughs. Multiplayer is totally empty, though.

Yer as Stated online now is pretty much dead, post inthe forums on here and find a boosting buddy to get the online achievements, finding each other in ranked matches is pretty eazy, as for hard boiled i wudnt say it is really hard but you do have to treat it like a tactical sort of shooter as stated but compared to Cod veteran i wud say it is harder,

I found normal challenging enough and was having to take cover all the time!

that RB tip is very useful though, i'll keep it in mind if I try hard+

Nobody mentionned the 250 achievements points you get from buying the map pack at 1200 ms points. If he's after a 100% GS completion, he'll have to buy it to get 100%. But if he's just after the 1000 points that come with the retail disc, then there's no reason not to get it...
