Introduction:
Rise of Nightmares by Sega is a first-person survival horror game for Kinect. This is no rail-shooter; you can move anywhere in the game world, and interact with objects by using realistic gestures. While the controls may take some getting used to, once you have them down the game is tons of fun. The thrill of hacking and slashing creatures to pieces with your hands never gets tired, though your arm will.

Step 1: Humane Playthrough
The three achievements for playing through on each difficulty do not stack, so you might as well start on the easiest setting. This will also allow you to get familiar with the game and its controls.

In this playthrough, make it a point to kill every creature you see, pick up every weapon, tarot card and detective’s tape, and view all secret events. This will net you Creature Hunter, Tarot Master, Master Sleuth,and Sharp-Eyed Traveler. You will also earn progress towards, and likely earn many of the weapon-specific kill achievements. Your kill counts carry over to each playthrough, so there’s no need to try and get all the kill-based achievements in one go.

Beating the game on this difficulty will get you Nightmare Escapee,and unlock the Torture difficulty and Endless Nightmare mode.

Step 2: No Mercy Playthrough
Now play again on the normal difficulty, No Mercy. Finish up any weapon-based kill achievements you can. Completing the game this time will earn you Nightmare Defeater.

Step 3: Torture Playthrough without Dying
Now that you’ve beaten the game twice, you should know what you’re doing. This playthrough can be tough, as you can die in one or two hits. If you do die, shut the Xbox off before the Game Over screen appears to make sure your death doesn’t count. If successful, you will earn both Nightmare Vanquisher and Master of the Nightmare.

Step 4: Endless Nightmare
Now comes the difficult part, Act 10, which is on Torture difficulty. You need to complete each of the three scenes within the time allotted to get an A rank. Doing so will get you Escape From the Grasp of Evil, Live to Tell the Tale, Fight or Flight,and Endless Nightmare.

While playing, make sure to pick up the few weapons in this act that are needed for Weapon Master.

Conclusion:
At this point you will likely have all the achievements. If you are missing any, such as a weapon kill achievement, load up an appropriate scene and get it done. Celebrate your 1000:gsicon: in Rise of Nightmares!

Cards of Insight.
Unlocked Description: Found a Tarot Card for the first time.

This can first be unlocked in Act 1. Tarot Card 0 (The Fool) can be found in the dining car. Once you side-step the guy on the phone, turn around, and you will see the card to the right of the door from which you entered.

For a complete list of Tarot Cards, see HERE.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...9/5-jy6XY=.jpgFading Footprints - 5:gsicon:
Forgotten Records.
Unlocked Description: Found a Detective's Tape for the first time.

This can first be unlocked in Act 1. Detective's Tape 01 (In Eastern Europe) can be found at the end of the dining car. When facing the dining car exit, turn around and you will see another door. Open this to enter a small kitchen, where you will find the tape on a counter.

For a complete list of Detective's Tapes, see HERE.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...9/5-4ICmY=.jpgCreature Executioner - 15:gsicon:
Attacks from below are effective against creatures too.
Unlocked Description: Defeated at least 20 creatures with a spear trap.

A spear trap is a section of floor that has spears which pop out at regular intervals. You need to get 20 creatures to die on these spears, either by knocking or leading them onto the spears.

A good place to get this is in Act 3. After the TV room, there will be a long passage with spear traps and several enemies. Kick or lead them onto the spears to kill them, and then kill yourself. Repeat until you unlock the achievement.

In Act 10-2 there are spear traps that materialize from purple vortices. These also count for this achievement, but there are very few enemies in the area.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...9/5-wpA9M=.jpgIron Fist - 10:gsicon:
Keep punching. Don't stop.
Unlocked Description: Defeated at least 50 creatures with a fist-type weapon.

Kill 50 enemies with weapons worn over both fists. These include:
Brass Knuckles
Creature Gloves
Golden Knuckles

Keep swinging that knife.
Unlocked Description: Defeated at least 50 creatures using a knife.

You need to lure them into their doom.
Unlocked Description: Defeated at least 20 creatures with the slicer.

The slicer is a large spinning blade that slices across a room, either from the wall or floor. You need to get 20 creatures to die on these blades, either by knocking or leading them onto the blades.

While there are many locations with slicers, the best place to work on the achievement is in Act 3. You'll come to a point where there is a locked door at the end of a large room, and you need to pull a lever to open the door. Pulling this lever also activates a pair of large slicers, and lets lots of creatures into the room. Simply bait the creatures into walking into the blades, and they will die. Once the room is clear, kill yourself on the blades, and repeat until the achievement unlocks.

This is where it all begins.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...9/-KBD3g==.jpgThe First Kill - 5:gsicon:

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...9/5-nNy2Q=.jpgBrawl King - 15:gsicon:
Don't pick things up.
Unlocked Description: Defeated at least 50 creatures using only punches and kicks.

Kill 50 enemies by punching or kicking. You can punch with your left hand at any time, and with your right when you are not carrying a weapon, but can kick any time.

These are the weakest attacks, so either work on this when your current weapon breaks and before you pick up another, or try and get it done in the early stages that have weaker enemies. You can also whittle an enemy's health down with a weapon, and finish it with a kick.

Your kill counts carry over from each playthrough, so this will eventually unlock this as long as you use unarmed attacks when possible.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...9/5-6ozAA=.jpgCreature Hunter - 30:gsicon:
Defeat as many kinds of creatures as you can.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...9/5-+u0bs=.jpgCreature Crusher - 15:gsicon:
Kick'em to their doom!
Unlocked Description: Defeated at least 20 creatures using spiked walls.

A spiked wall is a section of wall that has spikes protruding from it. You need to get 20 creatures to die on these spikes, by kicking or punching them into the spikes.

In Act 3, after the passing through the passageway that has lots of puddles, you will turn the power on which causes the puddles to become electrified. At this point you need to go down a ladder to proceed. In this underground passage, there are spiked walls and a handful of enemies. Kick or punch them into the spikes to kill them, and then kill yourself. Repeat until you unlock the achievement.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...9/5-xvIJ0=.jpgCreature Bomber - 15:gsicon:
Burn baby, burn!
Unlocked Description: Defeated at least 30 creatures with explosives.

This achievement is earned by killing 30 enemies with explosive crates. Kills made with Volatile Test Tubes do not count towards this.

There are numerous parts of the game with explosive crates. A good place to work on this is in Act 3. Just after you pull the lever to open the door and activate the slicers, you will enter a room with several red crates, a stairway up, and three enemies in the room. You can try getting enemies from the previous room to follow you. Lure the enemies near the crates, then attack the crates, causing them to explode, killing the enemies nearby and very likely you. Repeat until you unlock the achievement.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...9/5-9INJM=.jpgCraftsman - 10:gsicon:
Dismember a single creature while leaving it alive.
Unlocked Description: Sliced off three creature body parts without a powered weapon, leaving the creature alive.

This is earned by cutting off a creature's head and two arms. This can be pretty tricky, as you'll often kill them before you can remove the third part.

Grab a sharp weapon, like a Knife, Machete or Hatchet. Try to remove each arm first, by swinging directly at each arm. Once both arms are gone, remove the head by swinging down or stabbing at it. If successful, the head will explode, and the body will stumble around for a moment before finally dying.

Refrain from swinging wildly at it, as that will just cause more damage and kill it before you want to. Do not attack the creature after removing it's parts; allow it to die on its own.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...9/5-waOs8=.jpgWatcher - 5:gsicon:
The actions of others are fascinating.
Unlocked Description: Discovered your first "Secret Event."

Knock out more than one at a time.
Unlocked Description: Defeated at least three creatures in one swing.

Killing three enemies or more with one attack is tricky do with regular melee weapons, as it is hard to hit every enemy in a group at the same time. Rather, get a Golden Test Tube and toss it at a group of three enemies. If they all die, the achievement will unlock.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...9/5-oMOkI=.jpgEscape From the Grasp of Evil - 30:gsicon:
Obtained an A-Rank in Act 10, Scene 1.

To get an A rank, you must complete the scene quickly, and with a decent, but not necessarily high kill count. Move from area to area swiftly, stopping only to kill those enemies directly in your way. Keep your arms down unless you need to block or attack; the auto-aim will become frustrating quickly, as it will spin you around in directions you may not want to go.

Scene 1 takes place in the catacombs and graveyard from Act 2. An A rank can be achieved with at least 37,120 points, but lower might be possible.

Here’s a great video walkthrough by YouTube user Landscape97.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...9/5-vswtE=.jpgLive to Tell the Tale - 30:gsicon:
Obtained an A-Rank in Act 10, Scene 2.

Scene 2 begins in the TV room from Act 3, and takes you through the bedrooms, ending in the booby-trapped underground passage. There are very few enemies in this scene; your main task will be avoiding one-hit kill traps. An A rank can be achieved with at least 38,820 points, but lower might be possible.

Here’s a great video walkthrough by YouTube user Landscape97.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...9/5-5OKSg=.jpgFight or Flight - 30:gsicon:
Obtained an A-Rank in Act 10, Scene 3.

Scene 3 takes place in the forest from Act 5. It can be tricky to navigate your first time through, as there are multiple portals you can take, levers to pull, and an item to find. There are tons of enemies here, and it is best to avoid combat when possible, especially in the area with the hordes of chef creatures. Keep your arms down and kick enemies away, killing only those necessary to clear a path. An A rank can be achieved with at least 52,360 points, but lower might be possible.

Here’s a great video walkthrough by YouTube user Landscape97.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...9/5-47M3o=.jpgSharp-Eyed Traveler - 20:gsicon:
Discovered all "Secret Events."

There are 12 Secret Events throughout Acts 1 through 8. Find them all to earn this achievement. Your discovered events carry over from each playthrough, so if you miss any, you can replay Acts from the Scene Select menu, or find them up on another playthrough.

For a list of all Secret Events, click HERE.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...9/5-gtM-c=.jpgEndless Nightmare - 60:gsicon:
Survived the Endless Nightmare.

The Endless Nightmare is Act 10, and must be unlocked by first completing the game on any difficulty. The difficulty setting for Act 10 is "Torture" and cannot be changed. The goal is to complete each stage in the time allotted, without dying. You only get one life to complete each scene, so if you die, you must start over again.

To get this achievement, you must complete all three scenes in Act 10, which are selectable from the Scene Select menu. See the three achievements for obtaining an A rank on each scene for more.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...9/5-2P2A4=.jpgMaster of the Nightmare - 60:gsicon:
Cleared the "TORTURE" difficulty without dying.

"Torture" is the hardest difficulty, and must be unlocked by first completing the game on either "Humane" or "No Mercy." To select this setting, choose New Game at the Main Menu.

You can die in one or two hits on this setting. The key to surviving is to avoid fights whenever possible, and not to get overwhelmed by groups of enemies. If you are injured, back away if you have room, or block by keeping your arms up. You can still die while blocking if you are already near death.

If you do die, either shut-off your Xbox or quit to the dashboard before YOU ARE DEAD appears on screen. You will have to continue from your last checkpoint, but your death will not count.

Complete all acts on this difficulty without dying to earn this achievement. It will unlock after the cut-scene that is Act 9, which takes place after the credits, so do not turn off the game until you watch it.

To minimize your playthroughs, it is recommended that you go for this achievement at the same time as "Nightmare Vanquisher" - clearing the game on "Torture" difficulty.

For a no-death Torture walkthrough, see YouTube user Landscape97's run HERE.

Thoughts? Feedback?

I placed the difficulty at a 5, because the controls can be troublesome at times, and Endless Nightmare is frustrating.

I estimate the total time to 1000 at 15-25 hours, as each play through can be completed in about 5 hours, giving ten more hours for Act 10 and clean-up.

Does anyone want to share their A-rank scores for Act 10? I'd like to add the lowest known score for an A on each stage.

CelticWarriorDB 10-06-2011 12:55 AM

I think this is an awesome guide dude, it will be very helpful.

I'm still trying to get used to the controls lol.., and unfortunately the 'no dying' run is going to be a pain as I've died several times already, and some were pretty cheap IMO.

CelticWarriorDB 10-08-2011 11:04 PM

I have a question, I picked up a Katana, what weapon achievement category would that fall under? I didn't see it in the guide.

Honestly, a lot of the weapons don't clearly fall into a specific category, which is why a lot of my descriptions add "but may not be limited to" those weapons listed.

If I had to guess, I would imagine the katana would fit in either the wood-chopping or knife weapon category. If you get the achievement for either of those while using the katana, let me know.

CelticWarriorDB 10-08-2011 11:20 PM

I don't have the knife kills achievement yet, but I do have the wood-cutting achievement. I really hope it's the knife achievement.

However, maybe it's the power weapon category? I killed enemies in one hit with it, and it showed up in the same crate I found a meat-mincer in on a previous play session.

HamKet 10-08-2011 11:23 PM

Actually, that achievement is for powered weapons, that is, weapons that need a power source or a motor, not power weapons, which would be really strong weapons.

So the katana wouldn't work for the powered weapons achievement.

CelticWarriorDB 10-13-2011 01:33 AM

I have a question:

- Since the game remembers your tally for kills, does it remember things like Tapes/Cards/Weapon pick ups? So, I wouldn't have to start a whole new playthrough, I can just pick the act and get what I need? Once I do that, could I just quit out, or do I have to finish the act for it to count? I know I missed a couple of weapons.

Correct. If you miss a collectible, you can snag it on another playthrough, or replay the act to get it.

If you replay the act, I would suggest playing until you hit a checkpoint before quitting.

Started playing this tonight. The controls are a bit frustrating for sure, but not a bad game. Got to the end of Act 3 before needing a break for a smoke. LOL...Gotta quit smoking!

Nice guide though man, It'll be very helpful.

Cheers!

Well, unless anyone has any suggestions, this guide is complete, and I will submit it this weekend.

Thanks for the guide mate.
I havent bought the game yet, but it sits on the top of my wish list so I think it wont be long until I give it a try.

Helpful guide.. I'm enjoying the game as well! I'm frikin sore though! Played for 2 days straight, finished my first easy playthrough and all the collectibles on Tuesday, then wednesday did all the Act 10 scenes which were frustratingly hard!

I think 1 of my achievements is glitched though.. it's the Pipe Layer achievement.. I played Act 10-3 numerous times using the bone crusher weapon and this hasn't unlocked for me yet. Maybe I'm sitting at 49 and just don't know it.. I'll pick it back up next week!

I tried playing the endless mode for about fifteen seconds before I gave up due to the auto facing an enemy near you feature, and moved on to going through easy mode getting my collectables and weapon related achievements.

By the way, within those fifteen seconds I did get two weapon related achievements, though. From what I could see, those levels have a lot of unique weapons in them, and a lot of enemies, so they'd probably be good spots to grind out the weapons, if you wanted to.

I'd suggest just using the Iron Pipe to be safe; you can grab it in Act 0 and get quite a few kills there. It's been a while since I've played, and while I am fairly certain the Bone Crusher counts for Pipe Layer, it is possible it doesn't.

Yea, I ended up getting it with the Iron Pipe while doing my normal difficulty playthrough.

Also; the Icesaw counts towards the "Axe Chopper" achievement as well. Since that achievement unlocked for me while swinging it.

And for the "Master of the Nightmare" you can simply dashboard. I just held a controller in my offhand just in case. I only died about 5 times during my nightmare run. It just reverts you back to your last save.
