Is this game hard to get 1000gs in?
 
I was thinking about getting this game but I am not sure since everyone I have seen on LIVE has 0 points in it.

Is this hard to 1000 or time consuming or both?

How long would it take to just complete it?

What is the maximum amount of points I could achieve in it for around a five day period?

Thanks

this game is a very hard 1000 points. It requires skill because s-ranking all the acts takes loads of time. It's also a tough game to get used to with its camera angles. I have managed to get 520 in this game and i'm really happy with that. I recommend not getting this game for only 5 days because the achievements take much longer than that.

Unfortunately I kind of agree, kind of disagree. I have 500/1000 and haven't played this game since September. Once I pick back up on this game I will go for the 1000. It's definately manageable, no one should be completely uncapable of gettin 1000. If I'm not mistaken there should still be a video guide on youtube showing you how to S rank EVERY level and get EVERY silver coin for the full 1000. The game has hard concepts but once you get used to it the levels are pretty much all the same.

I can tell you now that Sonic's are the easiest to S rank (at least for me because of his slow down gem giving you a massive time bonus) It's Silver and Shadow that take a little more work.

Professor Pie 08-06-2008 07:58 PM

I'd say they aren't too difficult skill-wise, it's just the fact it take a long period of time. The game's loading times do not help. Now I've only got about 440 gs in the game so far and I haven't played for ages, but Night of Kronos seems to be the hardest one for me to get as it's quite hard to S rank the last level. I can see it taking more than 5 days in some cases.

crazy 1 08-13-2008 09:44 PM

that is hard as hell to get all s ranks i only got an all S in sonic town missions they need to make a cheat devices or something

Matriculated 08-16-2008 09:27 PM

The hardest part is having the energy to sit through all the loading times when you attempt the Town Missions.

Piccolo549 08-16-2008 09:43 PM

yeah i was also wondering how hard this was, thanks

Domerchuchu 08-17-2008 08:36 PM

This is definitely one of the hardest games to get 1000 in. I managed to get 1000 after many many hours of retrying nearly every level. That being said, I kind of liked the challenge lol :woop:

VitoADP 09-20-2008 11:37 AM

i only have 2 achievements in this game, because my game got glitched and when i beat shadows story i never got the achievement for that or beating the last boss at the end.

GrAgOt 10-11-2008 11:41 AM

it is really time consuming, and u will have do repeat levels over and over

Bruk 12-31-2008 10:57 AM

It probably wouldn't be too bad if the game wasn't horrible. Those load times...*pulls shirt collar*

vmu 01-28-2009 04:59 AM

load times, glitches, controls, voice acting, music= Bad in this game, if sega updates them all come back to it, i love sonic to death (former world speedrunning champ of sonic adventure- (1/12/05-6/29/05) but this game only ruins what that game stood for, fantastic controls(nope) kickass music(nope) and decent camera angles(not even decent)

Rodni Demental 02-17-2009 03:18 AM

Well the game got Hardest Action 1000 in the 07/08 achievement awards on this site if that means anything.

To get 1k you need lots of patience (to get around a few of the game issues), you probably need to like the game to some extent, :P and will require a lot of skill/memorisation for getting S ranks and finishing some of the hard mode levels. Then there's just ever so time consuming medal collecting.

Fun game imo and I enjoyed getting the achievements but I realise it's not for everyone. :)

Reloaded 03-04-2009 07:35 PM

About how many hours did it take to get 1000?

Rodni Demental 03-08-2009 12:05 AM

o_0 That is a very good question...

It was about a month from unlocking the first achievement to unlocking the last achievement but as far as that goes, i slowed right down towards the end going days without playing (silver medals are not fun). I'm gonna say it was around the 30-50 hour mark.

Thing is it could vary so much, depending on your ability to unlock the S ranks and how long it takes you to collect the medals (text guides/no guides/official guide with pics etc.)

lordsponge 05-24-2009 06:04 AM

it took me ages to get 1000 on this i love sonic but this drove me mad at times but now i've done i can just play the levels for fun again.

Speed OD 06-12-2009 05:22 PM

yes is there a achiv value to this game
it worth the time to play or not?

SCA KAZUMA 06-15-2009 05:03 AM

I have to be honest: I only have 270/1000 on this game, and I got it the summer after I got my system (2007). This is one of the few games that I beat the main storyline and pretty much quit playing. I'm usually an achievement whore, but the loading times for this game were enough to make me never want to play it again. I really want to get more than 300GS on this game, but I can't make myself go back and play it for the simple fact that I know the loading times eat up 75% of the playing time I will end up investing. Plus, if I fail at whatever I am attempting, I have to sit through more loading screens. I have more to do than sit at a game that I'm not even able to play for a good three quarters of the time...

IceKingz 08-04-2009 07:59 PM

Wow, after over a couple of years I picked the game back up. Working on S ranking Shadow's first then Silver followed by silver coins to 1k it. I'm shocked that so many people are saying it's THAT hard. My tip for anyone that's seriously struggling is watch the Youtube vids and copy. If you look at some of DarkSpinesSonic vids, he has a lot of helpful little glitches to speed things up. Basically what I find is that enemies are much more reliable than times and rings. If boxes are in your path of travel, go ahead and break as many as you can, sure they are small points but every point counts. If you watch a video first, you can see every tricky part and it will save you many many run throughs.

The only factor that seems to stop me after watching these videos are just your usual glitches. (I was at Kingdom Valley and Shadow homing attacked a switch but after that he stopped in midplace and fell to his death even after I hit A) Stuff like that...

Edit: Oh ya and as for hard mode not much really changes except for a few different obstacles in the way and more enemies which spells out more points. Just watch the regular videos and be a little cautious for new traps.

Edit 2: Alright a day later and I have S ranked all of Shadows stuff besides town missions and I have 3 more full levels (both medium and hard) for Silver. After that and Shadow's town missions I am done! Well I also need Silver Medals but with guides that's easy. Just a tip guys, to S rank a level, kill enemies and don't die. I promise that's all it truly takes. For Silver, his Jungle level is the only one that's kind of tight on points if you don't know where to go. If you watch on Youtube it's easier. Besides that I've S ranked everything first try. Just be careful but kill enemies fast.

Zerowind117 08-07-2009 10:42 AM

The "Legend of Soleanna" is certainly something to take pride in if you manage to get it. I've played this game on and off for 2 years now and I don't have half the points. With enough time, yeah you can do it, but you would have to be really devoted to get it in a rental period, if that's even possible.

IceKingz 08-15-2009 06:45 PM

I got Legend of Soleana today! Finally finished up Silver's story and Shadow's town missions after CoD WAW x2 XP was over. There was ONE level that was pretty agrivating for me and that was Silver's Kingdom Valley. Everything else was pretty easy taking 1 (2 max) tries. His level wasn't neccessarily hard EXCEPT the battle at the end is tricky if you don't play defensively. I died there twice from rushing in and those stupid yellow robots will scatter your rings off the map before you get up. Watch DarkSpineSonic's video on Youtube for anyone struggling on that level as he takes massive short cuts.

i agree.
the game isnt that hard. it does require patience and skill however. i only just started working towards the sran k achievements for sonic and i already have the first 3 levels done on both normal and hard.

the whol time i focused on killing everylast enemy i cam across (on white acroplys its best to LET the sear ch lights find you so u have more enemies to kill for more points) and other than that dont die and end the game with the most rings u can. rings dont matter a whole lot if u kill enough enemies but it will help alot in the long run especially if u fall short with enemies.

but enemies are the big focus of nearly all the s ranks.

my only issue right now is crisis city. i'll have it perfect up to the part with the speed run, all of a sudden those cars just land on me no matter what i do. im still working on that part.

xboxmorgan91 01-15-2010 11:30 AM

Don't try this game if you are going for casual Sonic funziez. I was hoping to just kick ass as Sonic and Shadow and throw in Tails every once in a while and to see who this Silver dude was... but I don't have near the patience to even beat the first level in that superfast mode... This game has been removed from my house and has made me weary about ever trying a "new" Sonic game.

Arenazombie 01-29-2010 01:16 PM

S-Rank most time is just "complete the level without dying"
Think I will also go back to it at some point to at least finish all town mission S-Ranks since I only need 5-10 more.

alex555 01-31-2010 09:25 AM

I manage to get 1K, like 2 years ago, but that was because I'm a Sonic hard core fan, and that's why I manage to find patience on it.

If you really want to get 1000/1000, I'll share with you my technique. Watch YouTube videos to see how to get S Ranks on stages. You can't die, on the exception of Crisis city with Sonic, I think. Anyway you'll naturally get the hang of it, learn the stages and from your mistakes. You'll dominate the stage in no time giving you the S Rank on every stage with every character.

There are some videos telling you the locations of the Silver Medals as well. Well that's all, good luck, and now that I think about it there are harder games to achive the 1000/1000, so don't let the game intimidate you :).

Ahh, one more thing, be really careful with Kingdom Valley with Sonic on both normal & hard :eek:. This is the most difficult & gimmick stage in the whole Sonic history. Things get worse when you can't die, and even worse when if you die in the final running section that's so gimmick as well, you'll have to restart the stage all over :(.

Decabo 08-14-2010 09:36 PM

Very tough, although I'd argue that beating EggmanLand 3 times without dying in Sonic Unleashed is harder than anything in Sonic the Hedgehog.

Hyuzeni Pattasan 08-08-2012 06:45 PM

This game is really hard to aim 1000g because of getting an S rank is impossible. It like getting a S rank is to complete the Act mission without dying. The lasted Act I got a S rank is Crisis City as Sonic, because on the last area, I having trouble dodging the objects and cars while being chase by fire tornado. Unitl I realize I can light dash the rings to go far so I won't get hit by cars. Sonic's Speed is not fast:(, Silver's power is lack to control:(, and Shadow... well he no problem:). For Rouge, she didn't use kick but she could use throwing bomb:(. For the medals hunting, I go to youtube videos to location silver and gold medals. It really hard to location them on my own, but thanks for the person who made the medal location videos. I had 1000G in 4 years to completed it. This game is hard, but I enjoy it because I'm a fan of Sonic. Hope I play it again.

UnseatingKDawg 11-01-2012 05:16 PM

Yeah... This ain't an easy one to complete...

S-Ranking requires perfect play (no deaths/restarts), patience, perseverance, etc.

How I managed to S-Rank all the Town Missions I won't know.

I have 16 of the Achievements. The last 7 require me to S-Rank everything that's left and find all the Silver Medals.

I do know an easy S-Rank, though. In Silver's first Town Mission (The Apple Festival), if you commit suicide by jumping off the bridge nearby, you get to the results screen with more than 40,000 points and 0'00'016 on your time. Instant S-Rank.

I also know that to get an S-Rank as Silver in the Sonic vs. Silver fight, you need to practically defeat Sonic in less than 30 seconds. You just grab a bunch of stuff, jump, and mash X to throw the stuff at high speed.

JayCeeRocha HD 11-07-2012 02:05 AM

In all honesty the S-Rank Achievements are the biggest issues, considering the fact the game is very frustrating. I still love this game though!

DMagoo24 11-10-2012 12:08 AM

I'm just having a hell of a time beating levels... I got this game for my son and I to enjoy together, and it ends up just pissing me off...
