-Online: 0():
-Approximate amount of time to 710/1000: 15 hours 1000/1000: 16+ depending on skill
-Minimum number of playthroughs needed: 2
-Number of missable achievements: None
-Do cheat codes disable achievements?: No cheats
-Does difficulty affect achievements?: YES!
-Glitchy achievements: None
-Unobtainable achievements: None
-Extra equipment needed?: Kinect

Introduction:
This game requires skill and a skilled partner for some achievements like 'Qualify as Star in Synchro Mode' and 'Groove Brothers.' Other than that it's just doing the same dance moves over and over again. So you get better as time progresses. This will take two playthroughs, one on Easy and another on Hard. I will also explain the miscellaneous ones in step two. I will have each achievement numbered within each step, to figure out how to do them follow either the paragraph or for a quick reference look at the the number below the paragraph the coincides with that achievements number.

Step 1:
Here's where I will explain these:
1.'Mr. DJ' - 5
2.'Welcome!' - 5
3.'Finish 1 song' - 10
4.'Finish 10 songs' - 20
5.'Finish 20 songs' - 30
6.'Finish 30 songs' - 40
7.'Finish all songs' - 90
8.'Take it easy' - 30
9.'Hard Dance' - 90
10.'Until the End!' - 30
Total: 350
Fist go and do an easy one for 5 by loading up video box found on the main menu. There you will need to choose one song and play it. You will unlock 'Mr. DJ' (1) when the song starts, you then can immediatly leave.
Next go play through the entire story mode on easy and beat all 40 challenges, each song has a corresponding challenge to it. Through doing this you will you will get practice for later and get the achievements 2-9. You must work for 10 if your not good.

1.Load up video box found on the main menu. There you will need to choose one song and play it.
2.For playing the tutorial, this will play before your very first song. You could also choose to play it on the single player menu.
3.For finishing one song in any mode.
4.Ffor finishing ten songs in any mode.
5.For finishing twenty songs in any mode.
6.For finishing thirty songs in any mode.
7.For finishing all forty songs in any mode.
8.After you beat all forty challanges in the easy run through.
9.After you beat all forty challanges in the hard run through.
10.You will most likely not get this on your first try, but just score 7,000 and also try and keep your 'misses' and 'almosts' to a minimum. This only works with the last challange in the hard career.

Step 2:
Here's where I will explain these:
1.'Combo Maniac' - 20
2.'Fancy Free' - 15
3.'The 10,000 Points Dancer' - 20
4.'Perfect Groove' - 20
5.'Full Throttle' - 60
6.'Extreme Limit' - 10
7.'Dance Robot' - 90
8.'First Dance Degree' - 10
9.'Bachelor's Dance Degree' - 20
10.'Master's Dance Degree' - 30
11.'Duke of Groove' - 30
12.'Prince of Groove' - 60
13.'King of Groove' - 90
Total: 475
This are all the miscellaneous achievements. You might have gotten a few of them during step one but if not I will explain them here anyway.

1. Get a streak of thirty notes going in any song. Getting a miss will start you over. An easy way to track this is that there are some challenges that tell you to get a certain combo and it tracks your highest combo from that song. You will most likely unlock 'The 10,000 Points Dancer' at the same time.
2.Play any five songs in free play mode to the end.
3.Score 10,000 points in any song while playing alone. This will require skill and some luck. You will most likely unlock 'Combo Maniac' at the same time.
4.Do this on an easy osng that you can do all the moves on. Just keep going 'til you miss no beat.
5.Finish a song while getting approximately the last 5 notes with perfect and have full health. Make sure to hit that last note or you will lose your multiplier. And make sure if you have star power to use it at the end to boost your multiplier.
6.You may unlock this playing a hard song ,if not do bad on an easy song on purpose and hit about every other 3 notes.
7.Play any song on hard and get an 'almost' or better rating on every note. Make sure this is a song you can do all the moves on.
8.Score 1,000 points or more in any one song.
9.Score 6,000 points or more in any one song and try and keep your 'misses' and 'almosts' to a minimum.
10.Score 7,000 points or more in any one song and try and keep your 'misses' and 'almosts' to a minimum.
11.Score around 1,000 points on all 40 songs. (Might need to be done in career)*
12.Score around 6,000 points on all 40 songs. (Might need to be done in career)*
13.Score around 7,000 points on all 40 songs. (Might need to be done in career)*

Step 3:
This is where I will explain these:
1.'Synchronicity' - 20
2.'First Fight' - 20
3.'Face to Face' - 20
4.'Dance Power Master' - 25
5.'Mirror Stars' - 60
6.'Groove Brothers' - 30
Total: 175
These are all the multiplayer achievements. You will need another human player present and one that is as good as it takes for these achievments.

1.Go into multi player mode and start a syncro game with one other player and finish it.
2.Go into multi player mode and start an attack game with one other player and finish it.
3.Go into multi player mode and start a versus game with one other player and finish it.
4.Use all 7 powers in the multiplayer game 'attack' against another player
5.Just practice and score 7,000 and also try and keep your 'misses' and 'almosts' to a minimum in any one song. This only works in synchro. I'd aim to do this with 'Groove Brothers.'
6.Just practice and score 10,000 in any one song. This only works in synchro. I'd aim to do this with 'Mirror Stars.'

Conclusion:
Overall this game is pretty easy besides the fact that a few achievements are really hard. Also you need to make sure if you want the full 1000 you need to be able to find a commited partner taht will help you with the synchro mode achievements.


*I think I hit at least amatuer on all songs in free play, but I could be wrong, it's the stupid way they score this game.

---(See Finish All Songs)

Fancy Free - 15
Play 5 different songs in Free mode

---Go into free play and play any 5 different songs through to the end.

Finish all songs - 90
Finish all songs

---You may finish them in any mode and in any order, you do all the songs if you play through the career mode. I may also suggest doing this in free play mode as you can choose up to 8 songs in a row to play. It wll take 8 run throughs, but you'll know what songs you've done.

You will unlock 'Finish 1 Song' after you finish your first song.
'Finish 10 Songs' after you finish 9 more different ones.
'Finish 20 Songs' after you finish 10 more different ones.
'Finish 30 Songs' after you finish 10 more different ones.
And finally 'Finish All Songs' after you finish the final 10 songs. You can check to see which songs you've done by looking at the scores menu from the main menu.

Finish 30 songs - 40
Finish 30 songs

---(See Finish All Songs)

The 10,000 Points Dancer - 20
Earn 10,000 points in one song in Single Player mode

---Earn 10,000 points in any one single player mode, this is harder than it sounds. You must practically hit all notes in an easy song using the multiplier boost or be really good and in hard hit a lot of notes with getting a lot of 'perfects' and/or 'greats.' With this I'd practice the same song over and over again, preferably one that you can trigger all the dance moves in.

Perfect Groove - 20
Finish a song with 100% "Perfect" or "Great" moves

---Easiest done on easy. Just play any song getting only 'greats' and/or 'perfects' on every move. With this I'd practice the same song over and over again, preferably one that you can trigger all the dance moves in.

Full Throttle - 60
Finish a song with a full vitality gauge and a score multiplier of 4

---Finish a song while getting approximately the last 5 notes with perfect and have full health. Make sure to hit that last note or you will lose your multiplier. And if you have star power that doubles your score so you may end with 2x, but jump before the song is over to get it to 4x.

Extreme Limit - 10
Finish a song with the vitality gauge in the red

---Finish a song with your vitality in red. You may get it while playing hard. If not than go into easy and do whatever song you want until towards the end of the song and just don't do anything until you hit red. Then keep yourself there doing every other move. Or just start out at red from the start and keep yourself there. Not recomended as you might fail on accident.

Dance Power Master - 25
Successfully complete all Dance Power moves

---This is done in multi player in the 'attack' mode. There are 7 different powers and you must use them against your opponent. You get them by doing the dance moves that are in the gray silhouettes and they usually, with some exceptions, come two at a time. Hit them both with at least a good or better rating and than jump to use your power. Does not have to be done on the same song as you only get 3 - 4 in each song. All the powers are: 1.Vitality Theft 2.Track Jump 3.Twinkling 4.Stuck 5.Hidden 6.Freeze 7.Score Theft.

Dance Robot - 90
Finish a song without missing any dance moves in Hard difficulty mode

---Play any song on hard and get an 'almost' or better rating on every note.

Until the End! - 30
End the last song in Career mode with a Star Rank in Hard difficulty mode

---Score around 7,000 or more points in the last song to get star rank. Also try and keep your 'misses' and 'almosts' to a minimum. It's a little weird how they give your rank in this game, it's a little of both score and ratings. A little different every time.

Mirror Stars - 60
Qualify as Star in Synchro Mode

---This mode you must play with another player and it takes the lower rating of the two players move. So you must play with another player that is really good and play a song where you can score 7,000 points in. I'd aim to do this one with the same song you plan to do with the 'Groove Brothers' achievement.

Bachelor's Dance Degree - 20
Qualify as Pro on one song.

---Score 6,000 points or more in any one song. Also try and keep your 'misses' and 'almosts' to a minimum. If you get this it also stacks on 'First Dance Degree.' It's a little weird how they give your rank in this game, it's a little of both score and ratings. A little different every time.

First Dance Degree - 10
Qualify as Amateur on one song

---Score 1,000 points or more in any one song. You can check the points of every song you've played by looking at them in the score menu from the main menu. It's a little weird how they give your rank in this game, it's a little of both score and ratings. A little different every time.

Groove Brothers - 30
Earn 10,000 points in one song in Synchro mode

---This mode you must play with another player and it takes the lower rating of the two players move. So you must play with another player that is really good and play a song where you can score 10,00 points in. With this I'd practice the same song over and again, preferably one that you and your partner can trigger all the dance moves in.

Master's Dance Degree - 30
Qualify as Star on one song

---Get 7,000 points in any one song. Also try and keep your 'misses' and 'almosts' to a minimum. If you get this it also stacks on 'Bachelor's Dance Degree' and 'First Dance Degree.' It's a little weird how they give your rank in this game, it's a little of both score and ratings.

King of Groove - 90
Qualify as Star on all songs

---Score at least 7,000 on all 40 songs. Also try and keep your 'misses' and 'almosts' to a minimum. You can check the points of every song you've played by looking at them in the score section of the main menu. It's a little weird how they give your rank in this game, it's a little of both score and ratings. A little different every time.
