No, games like Angry Birds Space/Star Wars are availble on WP7 and WP8 however the WP8 version has achievements where as the WP7 version does not.

Games that require interent access
Q. I fulfilled the requirement for X achievement in Y game but it didn't unlock?
- Gun Bros (TBC)
- Fusion Sentient
- NFS Undergound
- Puzzle Quest 2
- The Sims 3
Some games are just glitched (see question below) but others are buggy and if this happens then you can try deleting the game and then re-installing it (as this also removes the game saves) and re-fill the criteria for it.
If you unlocked an achievement but its not showing up in your history, give it some time it will update.
Q. What games have glitched achievements on the WP?
Unfortunately there are some games that have glitched achievements, while some get patched there are some that have yet to receive patches. The reason behind glitched achievements is because the developers can't test the achievements.
Games with glitched achievements
- Brain Challenge HD - 5 achievements for 80gs
- Contract killer - 1 achievement for 15gs
- Crackdown 2 Project sunburst - all achievements for 200 gs
- Deer Hunter 3D - 1 achievement for 25gs
- iBomber Defense - 1 achievements for 10gs (TBC)
