Conflict: Denied Ops is the latest installment of the highly addictive past generation series of games with the same name. This time around you will be fighting your enemies with only a 2 man team and also in first person. The achievements in this game are relatively straight forward but can be a pain to unlock for some of the level specific achievements. There are also online achievements that are primarily to win under certain conditions. Considering the lack of players online for this game, you may want to find a boosting partner for the online achievements.
Step 1: Campaign in Co-op and normal difficulty
Your first step should be to start the campaign and complete it entirely in Co-op and at normal difficulty. There isn't too much of a difference between normal and easy, so starting on normal will gain you Campaign Completed(easy) and Campaign Completed(Normal) as the difficulty achievements stack. After you have completed step 1 by finishing the campaign on normal with a Co-op partner, you will have unlocked at least 170. While going through this step you should try to get as many of the level specific achievements as possible to get them out of the way.
Step 2: Campaign on Extreme difficulty
After your first playthrough you should start the campaign again, but this time on extreme difficulty. you can only unlock this difficulty after completing the campaign at least once. This time around you may struggle, but you can still have a Co-op partner if you feel it would make the game easier. The final 2 difficulty related achievements also stack, so completing the campaign on extreme will gain you Campaign Completed(Extreme) as well as Campaign Completed(Hard) for a further 250.
Step 3: cleaning up
After you have completed all of the Co-op and difficulty related achievements, you should start cleaning up all of the achievements that are level specific or that are for a certain degree of performance within a level. You can attempt these as you are going through your original playthroughs, but any that you miss can be attempted again through level select.
Step 4: Online
Your final step will be to play online for the achievements. These are skill based achievements as apposed to grinding achievements so you should find a boosting partner or group and help each other out to obtain these. The online community of this game is also very under-populated so you may struggle to find a game on your own.
So difficulty wise, this is hardly a quick and easy game, but it also isn't too hard and can be completed by the casual gamer as well as the hardcore. The main problem you will encounter is finding people to play with online, due to the age of the game and the lack of online community that still plays it, but, with perseverance and a bit of luck and you should find the people you need to boost it with.
