Achievement Discussion
 
Discuss the achievements, when they are revealed, in this thread.

These achievements look somewhat time-consuming, but not difficult. If the multiplayer is at all good (think around the level of Medal of Honor) then I will tackle and destroy these achievements. If it is poop, I will pass.

I can't help but want to go for the multiplayer achievements. I find them to be a decent test of dedication to earning your 1k. Not that I don't like an easy pass (like dead space 2); I just enjoy a decent competitive challenge.

Here's hoping this game is going to be good! :drunk

5 star threat and Expert of war are the only 2 that worry me so far. Looks to be a mediocre list. This will be a bitch to boost in a few years lol a 16 person achievement? WTF?!

Lord Yamikage 02-25-2011 06:41 AM

Can't wait for the guide(s), so I know how those MP achievements actually works. Very few of them are just completely confusing to me.

njdevils17 02-25-2011 08:08 AM

I'm not liking the whole "party" achievements. Other than that, they seem pretty standard.

I'm curious as to what the secret achievements are.

Actually, that is probably more like a 32 person achievement. This game supports 32 player matches, and that achievement is for having 16 players in your party -- your whole team. Probably best done at launch just in case the multiplayer dies off real quick.

TehGreyWolf 02-25-2011 05:19 PM

I hate it when games just try to be like call of duty, but the achievement list looks good but I still wait for a review before I purchase this game.

DemandingSky 02-25-2011 06:56 PM

I sense I'm going to find some people who want to party up to get that achievement. The others will come with time.

gmcb007 02-25-2011 07:22 PM

The party achievements are just annoying...16 people in a party??!!?? pathetic sales pitch IMO

Sir Goatfather 02-25-2011 08:31 PM

Awesome achievement images.

KuShNsTieN 02-26-2011 04:31 AM

these achievements are kinda crazy lol. be party leader with 16 members lol. Most of these mp achieves can be boosted, prob all of them..and plus you have to play the single player prob 2-3 times (depending on the difficulty u start from)...and another lvl 50 achievement -___- im def gonna boost that if i get this game.

SubG3nius 02-26-2011 05:35 PM

I actually think these achievements looks decent, never understood why people always whine when there is online cheevos involved, I actually like them, when they aren't that annoying/hard or just stupid.

And these cheevos looks like fun, not that hard, maybe only time consuming. See it as a reason to keep playing the game otherwise.

For the 16player-thingy, I think you only need to play in a game where your team is full.
If you have too invite 16 friends to a party, then it's messed up.

seven43861 02-26-2011 08:00 PM

Is it just me or does this achievement list seem kind of unoriginal. Sure there are mission specific cheevos and collectible cheevos, but 3 achievements just for completing a level. One for just complete, one for complete on hardest and one for not dying or restarting, kind of bland in its list.
Not saying that its hard in any way but come on, a little more variety would have been appreciated.

Extreme Washing Machine 02-27-2011 04:21 PM

Achievement list is a lot of Grinding
 
I feel kind of disappointed with this list because I was hoping for something new.
It is just another set of 'complete chapter 1' crap.

Samba P 02-27-2011 07:45 PM

Yeah I don't know. I have been on the fence about this game, I said very early that online/MP achievements was going to be the deal breaker, and here we are. Sorry Homefront

HELLSPWAN 88 02-28-2011 06:15 AM

I am so tired of MP achievements why do they have to put in bad achievemenst and kill the dam game for me

Barad 02-28-2011 11:18 AM

The multiplayer ones has ruined the list completely, just terrible.

Exactly what i thought, ive just cancelled my pre-order cause of this crap. Went for crysis2 instead now. Achievements look solid and rewarding.

Cooljoe 03-03-2011 07:53 PM

Anyone have any guesses how long it will take to reach rank 50? I highly doubt it would take as long as Battlefield Bad Company 2 as on average that one takes about 300 hours.:p

The Betrayer142 03-05-2011 06:25 AM

Not feeling optimistic about 1k'ing this, although I think that if the multiplayer is good and the boosters are consistent it's possible to get through this game without much trouble. I REALLY hope it's good.

Why on Earth would someone cancel a pre-order and not play a game just because of achievements. Yeah this is an achievement forum but dosn't anyone remember a time when video games didn't have them and we just appreciated games for what they were. Today's gamers are too spoiled with achievements, auto-saves, etc. I spend my hard earned money on games that interest me and not cuz the achievements are too hard or time consuming. If the achievements are worthwhile then it's a bonus.
If you want to play just for achievements than your not a true gamer. Go play something shitty and easy like King Kong or Avatar.

If you're a score whore annoying, pain in the arse achievements can ruin an otherwise perfectly decent game.

I agree a little more variety would have been awsome. I can not even begin to thing how manytimes you will have to play the SP to get all of them.

I totally get that. It's just a shame to miss out on what could be one of your top ten gaming experiences and not even get to taste it because the achievements don't look appealing. Im not saying Homefront is a top ten contender; just speaking in general. When I first started out w/ x360 I was a total "score whore" but quickly learned to appreciate games for what they were, achievements aside. ;)

Score whoring attracts plenty of OCD types... luckily I'm mild to middling, so I'd tend to agree that you shouldn't let achievements put you off a good looking game... as long as I can maintain my 85%+ completion rate that is.

Toastngravy 03-14-2011 01:05 AM

I actually decided to cancel the preorder for this game just by looking at the achievement list.
For a couple reasons really. The main point being I just despise games that have multiplayer based achievements. I'm ok with a couple simple ones, maybe one or two for hitting certain levels even.

Then we get to games like Homefront. They plug the poo out of the campaign saying it's all awesome and such, then focus all attention, as far as achievements go, to multiplayer.

That....and when i got a chance to play the multiplayer a few months ago it really wasn't that good....

DBurchHero 03-14-2011 01:48 AM

im an achievement whore in a sense, not that you could tell by my completion rate (but I blame that on having 2 jobs, a kid, and Ive only had my 360 for like 5 months and went and bought like 60 games within a month so I have too many to choose from or pour 50 hours into) but I also think its a little crazy to totally not get the game based on achievements.

Hell gamestop, where I assume a vast majority of us are getting the game from, offers a 30 day guarantee on new games that if you dont like it you can take it back and get your money back. If the game is so short and the multiplayer sucks... take it back and by then Crysis 2 will be out.

Or better yet get gamefly. Dont miss out on what could be a great game. I heard a lot of bitching , albeit a lot less, when bulletstorms achievements first hit the site. Im glad I didnt pass on it solely for achievements because Ive played through the game 4 times now and enjoyed it every time.

MikeinSC 03-14-2011 05:55 PM

joy, another game where it seems most of the points are MP. That's a giant "pass" right there.

basis 03-15-2011 10:16 PM

does anyone know how many players are necessary to start a match?

8? or 16?
