I just read a post by Frankie B1 were he said that teh achievments suck in this game, now i am sorry that he feels this way BUT i think that they are ok in some ways than other , some of the achievments reminds me of GOW & some remind me of At Worlds End, And in my eyes i think teh achievments are just as good as any other game and damn some will be pretty damn hard like achievement_complete_campaign_legendary, i must admit i am very dissapointed with the online achievments as they do suck big time!!!, i have looked long and hard at the achievment list and heh you have to run through the game 5x to get the achievments so people cannot and i say again cannot say that they are easy and quick to get as they will be liers. Well that is my opinion folks.

An awful amount of campaign achievements. It seems like they really want people to get involved in the offline now. I think the fact that there aren't a lot of online achievements will disappoint a lot of people. That being said, they will probably add another 250 points that are all online achievements.

Actually you can run through the game twice to get the campaign achievements. I see a very doable 500-600 and a not-to-impossible 800-900. However, going for the full 1000 will not be achievable in a mere weekend. Or week, for that matter.

I am so fuckin pissed right now, you just dont even understand. The online achievements are very achievable in one night. It actually makes me question whether or not I'll get this game. They are horrible, Im not even going to say anything. There are no team based achievements. There are no time consuming or cumulative achievements either. Only achievements you get for doing something In a game, disappointment. I mean why isnt there a 10,000 Kill achievement, or 777 Ranked games won. I mean, why? I just dont get it. I think bungie made a huge mistake, and they'll regret it. Even with content, It just doesnt make sense to me.

Im going to go cut myself.

No Maka trust me, i understand...im right with you about to drive to bungie headquarters and slap a bitch like wayne brady

There's a lot of questions that this achievement list raises, what is a meta-level?(or am i retarded) And what does "access all terminals" mean? O well guess we'll be waiting till september 25th

And yes i'm with you all...this achievement list blows. There are no long term goal achievements except for finish the game on legendary! I'm going to get ALL the multiplayer achievements in the first fucking week! WTF bungie

SHADOWRUNS achievements kick the shit out of this.

For the legendary achievement all you need is a mate who kicks ass at the game (providing you can get the achievements in co-op) then sit through the single player in Legendary. 9 levels = a long weekend, not too hard, for the rest, wait for a guide like Pirates or Robinsons and finish them off on Easy, or whatever the skulls etc can be found on - not the most exciting thing ever

As for the online, on evening if you are lucky with the achievements, two if you're not. Why no achievement ala GRAW or GOW for insane amounts of kills, as I said in my other post, I'm only going to be playing this one for the points, end of!

By the looks of the online achievements, I'm gonna be sticking to Shadowrun for my online fun.

If I was a single-player campaign guy, which I very rarely am, then I would be over the moon.

Right now, after reading the achievement list, I have a depressive frown wrinkling it's way across my face.

God save Halo 3.

These achievements have won me over, I will now buy this game.

Stupid online achievements were exactly what I didn't want and thank god they haven't done this.

But this is from someone who love the single player for halo but hates the online.

Yeah i thought so too, but I was still hoping they'd stick a couple of decent online, cumulative, achievements on there, but, alas, no such luck

Oh well, we can only hope GTA4 (IMO a far better game to be) will have some pretty nice achievements!

Wow, this is going to kill my enjoyment of Halo 3- once I get 1000 in a game I quickly lose interest in it, and this looks like a relatively quick 1000.

Semi disappointing, too many campaign achievements and no 10,000 kill sort of achievement.

Those achievement blow. Halo is an online giant, and all the online things are to do something once, instead of like Gears where you get it after a long time of doing the same thing. The majority of the achievements are in the campaign. I logged almost 2000 games online in Halo 2, never once played the campaign. Fuck that shit.

Edit: People like the post below me are missing the goddamn point. Halo is primarily an online game, one that people play for hours every day regardless of achievement or not, so the achievements should reflect that. They don't, and it's bullshit. Prey understood it wouldn't be a huge online game, so 25 kills per weapon was reasonable. Gears was significantly bigger, so 100 kills was reasonable. 250 kills per weapon in Halo 3 would have been reasonable.

Not a single sniper achievement?
No # of wins per map achievement?
No # of kills with weapons?
No # of kills total?
What. The. Fuck.

They got this wrong, and I hope they realize they pissed off their core audience.

Edit2: The extra 250 points better be for weapons/total kills, or they are just damn fools.

I LOVE this list. Not a single bloody online achievement that isn't attainable. Any game like Gears of War or PDZ with online achievements you have to invest months into instantly lose points in my book.

Halo has ALWAYS been a single player game with great multiplayer as a bonus. I don't think there was ever a chance in hell the boys at Bungie would have released a game with achievements 9/10 people would never want to spend time getting. I think your view of what Halo is... is the one at fault here.

Again, I think they know their core audience don't want to spend days unlocking a single achievement.

The fact that you do is... well that's nice for you. But for most people out there? Nope.

Have a strong feeling with enough beefing from the online community or just that it is already planned that the 250 point expansion should be all online and hopefully the large kill totals for example. My only concern would be if stats were not retroactive. I would hate to have say 2000 kills and then this comes out and they do not count toward a 10,000 kill achievement for example.

To be honest, and many people may disagree with me here, I think the multiplayer is pretty rubbish. I hate the Halo 2 multiplayer online play - I think it gets very boring pretty fast and not the most balanced game ever. Your skill on the game represents how many little tricks you have learnt, not on how you play as a team, like in Gears of War. The Beta was rubbish and I refused to play it after my first encounter with it. Even so, they should have some up with some nice long achievements to keep me interested and a couple of original achievements, like have a system link match with at least 8 xboxs or kill 100 people by knocking rocks on their head (Beaver Creek was good for this ) They have seriously scuppered the achievements on this

Fragula, why are thousands of people playing Halo 2 online every day, still, years after its release? You think those people ever play the single player again? Halo is not a single-player game. You're mental.
