No need to play twice for Path of Flesh/Blood achievements (Spoilers)

As the title says, here is a handy tip to save you two playthroughs.

Simply start the game on Normal and play through the first chapter - at the end, with the balance beam, have Campbell make it across and get in the elevator. I say this, because people who let him die are having trouble getting this to work.

As you go through, I would recommend you find all collectables and also do all of the Timed puzzle achievements on Normal. After that you can use Flashback mode to redo certain levels (as detailed in the guide) and get the other Timed puzzle achievements for Insane difficulty.

Now just use Flashback and load up Chapter 1 (I did it on Normal again). Get to the end and kill Campbell by letting him fall off the beam. Make sure you watch the cutscene at the end of the level and I even let Chapter 2 load to be sure. Then just exit out and play through the last chapter using Flashback mode. At the end you will get the alternate ending and last achievement.

Hey presto, time has been saved.

The 1st post states to use Flashback to Chapter 1 and not start a new game. Perhaps that was your issue? I am keen to find out if this works 100% as I will get the game by Friday.

Well I will point out that in my full playthrough I had Campbell survive at first. But this certainly worked for me. I will edit the guide.

Also, do not start a new game - you must use Flashback.

Who would willingly play this game twice? Have to say, it's pretty garbage.

I'll live with my 925 gamer score. 75gs and the full 1000/1000 is not incentive enough to play this garbage piece of crap again.

This method infact does work.

I did exactly what it says. perfect!


Tips"
Do not use flashback till you complee the game.
Watch the cutscenes.



Ending 1 - With Cambell is boring I find.
Ending 2 - With Michael is the best. Its a cliffhanger so HAH! i love those.

Works like a charm.

I even got 2 collectibles trophies in the last chapter and died some times, having to reload checkpoints.

I just did NOT save when had the option to.

Thanks for the tip... XD

I can also confirm that this achievement works the opposite too. I let him die my first playthrough and I used the flashback method and got it for michael dying at the end. WORKS BOTH WAYS.

Yup, this works. Just completed the game today (31st of August) and first time around I fell off the beam and died, second time I went across the beam. So it works both ways! Nice hint, thanks
