This is a fairly straight forward 1000k, you may need to grind a few but follow the guides, and you will have the full score in no time.
You will unlock 9 achievements for 130
just from playing through the story. It doesn't matter what difficulty you chose for this as there are no difficulty related achievements. However you will get many achievements on the way to this.
guide to make sure you collect all of the gene upgrades and secret as you will need them all to unlock X-Files, Snoop, Post Graduate
. The gene upgrades unlock different skills for you to use throughout the game. Make sure you are using these skills throughout the game to maximise your achievements.
Your character will get stronger throughout the game. Make sure you are using all of your abilities and the following achievements will be awarded as you play through.
Master Of Reflection
- Simply deflect 200 shots over the course of the game.
- Kill 5 & 8 enemies with Rage. Level 8 is the best place for these
- Take 30 enemies under your control.
- Spend 15 minutes in alien view. Use this whenever you can as it takes a while to accumulate all 15 minutes
- Kill an enemy with a reflected shot. You will get this soon after you get the ability.
There are a lot of kill x with x type achievements, but most of these will come naturally throughout the game, things like close combat kills, grenade kills etc. You should have most of these by the time you have finished playing through. Be sure to shoot any bottles and barrels you see for Anonymous Alcoholic
and Explosives Expert
You can unlock Collector
on the first level by picking up all 4 melee weapons, however these weapons are pretty useless as guns and ammo are everywhere in this game.
On the second level where you are being chased by the beast do not kill any human enemies for Humanitarian
, but remember you can replay any level so don't worry if you don't get this first try.
When you fight the Terminator on level 5, kill him with a grenade instead of performing a fatality to unlock Ripper
On level 6 you will fight the Annihilator, again kill this sucker with a grenade for Energy Blast
. Beware it is quite easy to kill him accidentally before you get the chance to throw a grenade, just take your time when his health gets pretty low.
On the final boss level, you have to kill him in a few different ways. Once you have one you can just reload the last level and kill him the other way. Kill him with his own shot, reflected by your shield for Suicide
, kill him with a grenade for Deadly Metal
and use Isolation to kill him with an alien for Alien DNA
Once you have finished your playthrough there is a little method you can use to get Immortal
. This is awarded for completing all levels without dying. As it says, complete all levels, not complete a playthrough. Load up a level, and play through to the final checkpoint. It doesn't matter how many times you die, but when you get past the checkpoint, exit the game to the dashboard. Go back into the game and select Continue Game, and it will start you at the last checkpoint with 0 deaths. Finish each level from this point without dying and this will unlock.
There may be a few miscellaneous achievements that you don't have by now, so simply replay a few levels to mop up any kills, barrels, fatalities or even maybe jumps you need.
This is an easy 1000
but do not expect to be playing a great game. It has some cool features but the graphics made my eyes bleed, and even though it was a pretty quick completion it felt like it took a lot longer than it did. It is not the worst game around but won't win any awards. The achievements are all pretty straightforward and using the method to complete all levels without dying will save you a bunch of time.
