It came out earliest for Austrailia on the 26th...it's the 27th right now (just turned) and the release date in Europe is today. The game must be an easy 3 hours to get all 1000 points! NICE!~ Do you see my point? I am very familiar with finding out release dates and things like that, even in other countries. For the guide to have been written in such little time, the game would have to have been obtained prior to release date.

I'm in the UK, it officially comes out today but I managed to buy a copy from my local Morissons as the old lady on the counter didn't have a clue it wasn't out yet. I only got it yesterday.
And I don't have 1000 points on it, you can write an achievement guide without getting all points you know, it's easy to fill in the gaps, researching across the internet, or your own experience thusfar with the game. Many of the achievements for this guide I've wrote are guesswork, and guess what, they're correct.

One quick question though involving the skirmish achievements.

Do they have to be done as a skirmish or can they be done as a deathmatch.
From playing it so far, I've got the ones I have in standard skirmish games as I found Deathmatch to be VERY tough, especially against the Heroic AI, I got my arse handed to me on a plate.

You can't just leave the game loaded up for 24 hours, this requires you to have ingame play time of 24 hours, just keep playing the missions or xbox live and you will get it eventually.


Secret Achievements





Just a quick query about this one... are you sure you couldnt just leave an Easy skirmish running, upgrade your base fully so you are unpenetrable to 'easy' attacks, but never attack their base to win. Hence leaving it on for hours...

It seems possible, although Ive not tried it. Cant remember if you have time limitations either (not with game now)

No there are no time restrictions, so that could work...although NO ONE will get the rest of the achievements before getting it...

(Over 3mill points for general????? At around 3k a game, thats 1000 games )

That's a possible solution, thank you, I'll add it to my guide

Nice one, dont see why it wouldnt work.

Churn a few tanks out to sit just behind your 1st line of turrets. Or on the other hand, use the Covenant and build a scarab or 2! If it doesnt work it will at LEAST boost your time on the game substancially.

Par times are wrong, either that or they change dependant on difficulty.

e.g Mission 5 for me was actually 21:00-35:00 I checked on completion. (Heroic Difficulty)

Welcome to the club, it seems you dont get slated like myself as much though, but yeah great guide man, a bit rusty but the game has only been out for a few days.

I writ a 50 cent guide with good descriptions for 43/46 of the achievements 2 days after it was released, and i was told it was shit XD

Then again, a 50 cent game is bound to attract some assholes. Haha, sorry for the rant.

Good guide, ever need somebody to boost with just holla, or somebody to coop with...

There was another user on this forum that accused someone of illegal activity, and he was given disciplinary action. In the words of Prince Humperdink... "I would not say such things if I were you."

That said, there's a large number of people who have gotten the game early through promotions and retailers releasing/shipping the game early. Some people have even had it for a couple weeks now. None of these people downloaded it illegally, though I'm sure there are plenty of pirates that have, and they've been most helpful contributing in this forum, so I see no reason why he wouldn't be able to write a guide at this point.

That said, I wrote a review based on the demo somewhere in this forum, and I included a tips&tricks section as well as outlining a rushing strategy. If you want, whiney, you can use the tips & tricks I wrote up, just give me credit.

The only issue I see with that is resource management. The Prophet's Y-ability sucks up resources like a fat kid (me) at a place that gives out free soda (Mountain Dew). So you would probably have to lay off the cleansing beam until you have some Honor Guards being trained.
