Introduction
Welcome to the latest instalment of EA’s official world cup games, this time for the 2010 world cup in South Africa. Unfortunately due to server closers by EA, the maximum 1000 gamerscore is no longer available in this game. Instead, a maximum of 715 points are up for grabs, although these are pretty straightforward and should not take much time to complete. You will also want to have the achievement guide by daenius open up as well:
http://www.xbox360achievements.org/f...d.php?t=226046

NOTE: Before you start playing the game, be sure to make a list of all 32 teams who have qualified for the 2010 World Cup in real life, and tick any teams off that you beat as you progress through the game. (See further below for a complete list of teams that have qualified)

Walkthrough
This section will contain a number of steps to follow in order to unlock all available achievements as quickly as possible.

Step 1

NOTE: Before starting this step you'll probably want to be aware that you have to play at least 6 qualifying campaigns, so you may want to be aware of the region of the nation you use first (Europe, Africa, Asia, Oceania, CONCACAF, South America).

The first step will be to play through a full world cup campaign, including both qualifying and the actual tournament itself, which you will eventually need to win.

The achievements you should be aiming for on this first step are:

NOTE: The difficulty will have to be set at Semi-Pro for this first step to ensure all achivements are unlocked.

- Europe/Oceania/Asia/CONCACAF/Africa/South America Qualifier (Depends on which team you use)
- Lightning Quick Strike
- Defend, defend, defend
- We'll just score more
- World Cup Winner

Step 2:

Here you will want to knock off another one of the qualifier achievements and one other, for this the difficulty must be set to semi-pro and you must choose a team that has qualified for the world cup but never scored in the finals, you should unlock:

- Europe/Oceania/Asia/CONCACAF/Africa/South America Qualifier (Depends on which team you use)
- Second Trip, First Goal

Step 3:

You should by now have at least 2 qualifying achievements, and will now want to knock off the final 4, so by the end of this step you should have all 6 achievement from:

- Europe/Oceania/Asia/CONCACAF/Africa/South America Qualifier

(Following the method in the achievement guide will see you net these in no time really, providing you have 2 controllers)

Step 4:

You will now want to start a play through of 'Captain Your Country' mode, similar to fifa's 'be a pro'. You'll need to play the whole campaign from the start of tournament qualifying, right through to winning the world cup. There is one achievement which requires you to play as a defender but this can be done at a later stage if you wish to play in a different position. You should have, by the end of this step, the following achievements:

- First Team Selection
- Managers First Choice
- Masterful Peformance
- The Captain
- Solid Performer
- Fair Play
- Most Hat-tricks
- Victorious!

and

- Hold the line (This requires you to play as a defender, but can be done on its own at another time if you wish)

Step 5:

This is where you will unlock the achievements for re-enacting certain world cup finals of recent history. All games will need to be played on Semi-Pro or above. You should now unlock:

- 2006 Fifa World Cup Final
- 2002 Fifa World Cup Final
- 1998 Fifa World Cup Final

Step 6 - Miscelleneous:

The final step here is to unlock the remaining achievements which cannot be unlocked alongside any other achievements, or would be very difficult unlocking alongside any others. You will now want to unlock the following:

- 2 Button Mentor
- Co-op Success
- Practice Penalty Kicks
- 2010 Fifa World Cup Mastery
- Pressure Cooker
- Practice Makes Perfect
- Hospitalities and Victories
- Concede No Goals

and if you didn't unlock it during the CYC campaign:

- Hold The Line

Conclusion + Mop-Up
By now, if there are any offline achievements which you have failed to unlock so far, you can just go back and try to get them again on their own, it should not take long.

To conclude, EA's 2010 Fifa World Cup is not a difficult game offline, and although its a shame, the removal of the online servers (resulting in no online achievements being available) has made the game much easier in regards to unlock all the obtainable achievements, and should take you no longer than 12-15 hours.

Against all odds75
Win the Online 2010 FIFA World Cup™ with a 1/2 - 1 star team. (24) 

In order to get this achievement, you will have to win the Online FIFA World Cup with a team rated 1 star or lower.

In the Main Menu, select "Online Fifaworldcup" and select a 1-star rated team.

For all teams rated with 1 star check "Single Star Group Stage" above.

Even with a lot of skill this will prove to be a near-impossible feat, since being the better player doesn't win you games; there are still other factors that play into this, such as connection, luck, etc. There is a way however, to slightly improve your chances of winning.

Simply quit out at the beginning of each encounter (in the team/jersey screen BEFORE the game starts) if your opponent is too strong for your team (3 stars or higher).

From my experience, there is a chance you will get matched up with people playing with weak teams, too, so if you have enough patience, just quit out of every encounter until you find someone you're positive you can beat.

In total, you'll have to win 7 matches.

- Group Stage (3 matches)
- Round of 16
- Quarter Finals
- Semi Finals
- Final

 

Ultimate Underdogs50
Win the Online 2010 FIFA World Cup™ with a 1.5 - 2 star team. (5) 

In order to get this Achievement, you will have to win the Online FIFA World Cup with a team rated 1.5 or 2 stars.

In the Main Menu, select "Online FIFA World Cup" and select a 2 star rated team.

For all teams rated with 2 stars check "Two Star Group Stage" above.

The same principle as above applies for this Achievement.

Quit out of every match until you find a team that you can beat. With some skill, you can beat teams rated 3 stars; more skilled players will even be able to beat teams rated 3.5 or 4, but don't underestimate the difference between teams.

The safe way is to just wait until you find a team rated 2 or 3 and to go for it.

 

Played well as a team15
Win the Online FIFA World Cup™ with a 2.5 - 3 star team. (3) 

In order to get this achievement, you will have to win the Online FIFA World Cup with a team rated 2.5 or 3 stars.

In the Main Menu, select "Online FIFA World Cup" and select a 3 star rated team.

For all teams rated 3 stars check "Three Star Group Stage" above.

Again, use the same method as mentioned above.

Quit out of every match until you find a team that you can beat. This time, if you're a skilled player, you can try to go for matches against teams rated 4 to 4.5 stars, although this still can be difficult.

As stated above, the safe way is to just quit out of encounters and wait for a team that's equally strong or weaker than your team.

 

Dream Come True5
Advance past the group stage in the Online FIFA World Cup™ with a team rated 3 stars or lower. 

From the Main Menu, select "Online FIFA World Cup" and advance past the group stage (first 3 games) with a team rated 3 stars or lower.

For all teams rated 3 stars check "Three Star Group Stage" above.

To unlock this achievement, you have to advance past the group stage of the Online World Cup, meaning you have to reach the 1st or 2nd place in your group to advance to the round of 16.

Just use the same principle as above - quitting out of encounters until you get matched up with a team equally strong or weaker than yours works well.

 

Undefeated Group Stage15
Win all three group games and advance to the knockout stage in the Online FIFA World Cup™. 

From the Main Menu, select "Online FIFA World Cup" and win all three games in the group stage to advance to the knockout stage.

For this, I would recommend using only 5 star rated teams, maybe even go as far as using only Spain (Region is Europe), since they're the best rated team by a long shot.

Select your team, start the World Cup and win all three games in your group to get this achievement.

Again, quitting out of games until you find a weaker opponent might help, although if you're playing with Spain, chances are people will quit out on you often enough, so you should take any chance you get; they're good enough to beat any team.

 

Hospitality and Victories10
As the lead profile advance through the group stage as South Africa in 2010 FIFA World Cup™ (5) 

For this achievement, first select "2010 FIFA World Cup" in the Main Menu.

In the following screen, you can change the settings if necessary.

If you're not as skilled as you'd like to be in FIFA, you can set the difficulty to "Amateur" and change the fixture type to "individual", this way you can select all the teams for the World Cup manually and make sure you can beat all of them.

Either way, make sure to select South Africa as your team, pressing when the cursor is over the team and press to continue.

To get the Achievement, simply finish 1st or 2nd in the group stage and advance to the knockout stage.

 

We'll just score more10
As the lead profile Concede 14+ In the Finals & Win the World Cup™. Semi-Pro or higher difficulty. (7) 

To get this achievement, select "2010 FIFA World Cup" from the Main Menu, set the difficulty to Semi-Pro or higher and give away 14 or more goals in the tournament and still win the World Cup.

Since we'll try to get "Defend Defend Defend", too, we'll do it like this:

Win your first two group stage games to make sure you'll reach the knockout stage, only score one goal a game and don't let your opponent score on you.
In your third game just go for 14 own goals, that way you have conceded at least 14 goals before the knockout stage and don't have to worry about it any more.

To score an own goal, pass the ball all the way back to the keeper, turn around and press either or to pass/lob the ball into the net.

Now you have to score two or less goals in each of the remaining 4 games and win each game to reach the necessary 11 or fewer goals for the "Defend Defend Defend" Achievement.

NOTE: Make sure to set the difficulty to Semi-Pro or higher.

 

Concede No Goals10
As the lead profile Advance to the round of 16 without conceding a goal: Semi-pro+ difficulty 

Select "2010 FIFA World Cup" from the Main Menu, set the difficulty to Semi-Pro or higher and finish the group stage (your first three games) without conceding a goal, meaning you'll have to win each of your first three games without your opponent scoring on you.

This could pose a problem if you're not into defending, but I did it like this:

Score one goal, then pause the game, select "Team Management", change your formation to 5-4-1.

When you're back in the game, press until you've reached "Ultra Defensive", then press twice to change to "Offside Trap" and twice to change to "Counter Attack".

When you're playing like this, your whole team will play defensively and only open up to get a fast counter attack.

NOTE: Make sure to set the difficulty to Semi-Pro or higher.

 

Defend, Defend, Defend10

Refer to "We'll Just Score More" for additional information.

 

Second Trip, First Goal10
Qualify & Score in the finals using any team that's been to the finals & not scored :Lead profile (13) 

For this achievement, again select "2010 FIFA World Cup" from the Main Menu, this time setting the tournament type to "Finals" and change the difficulty if necessary.

Then, set the fixture type to "custom" and select one of the countries mentioned further down as your team.

The teams you can use for this Achievement are:

CONCACAF:

  • Canada
  • Trinidad & Tobago

ASIA:

  • China

First Team Selection15
Get promoted to the First team and play a match in Captain your Country. (3) 

Refer to "The Captain" for additional information.

 

Managers First Choice15
With a Virtual Pro play a game as the #1 ranked squad member in Captain your Country. 

Refer to "The Captain" for additional information.

 

Co-op Success5
All four co-op players get a match rating of 7 or above in a captain your country match. (2) 

For this achievement, you'll have to start a "Captain Your Country" campaign from the Main Menu again, this time setting up a 4-player campaign, doing so by changing "Players" to 4.

Then start a game (all 4 players will participate in it) and try to keep your rating-indicator above 7 at all times. Each player starts out with a rating of 6.0.

The most important criteria for a good rating are:

- scoring goals
- providing assists
- staying at your position (use the markers shown when you're too far away from your position as guidelines)
- successful tackles

To get the Achievement, simply let all four players play as defenders, namely Left Back, Left Center Back, Right Center Back, Right Back.

Simply bass the ball along the defense over and over again. There is no need to score any goals, just keep the ball between the four of you and watch the player ratings reach over 7.0 for all players.

 

Practice Penalty Kicks10
Score at least 5 penalty Kicks in Penalty Shootout Practice 

In the Main Menu, select "Training Ground". Once you're able to control the player, press BACK and select "Penalty Shootout Practice".

Score 5 times and the achievement will pop.

 

Masterful Performance20
Finish a captain your country where one of the players wins an end of tournament award. (4) 

Another "Captain your Country" achievement.

When you team has qualified for the World Cup,try and score as many goals as possible with your Pro during the course of the tournament.

You have to be ranked #1 goalscorer at the end of the tournament to unlock the Achievement, this way, you'll earn the Golden Shoe of the tournament, which is awarded to the player who has scored the most goals.

You can check your progress in the CYC Hub in between games by selecting "Statistics".

 

The Captain10
In a Captain your Country campaign play a game as the captain for your country's first team. 

This one will come over the course of your campaign.

Start a "Captain your Country" campaign in the Main Menu and either create or import a Virtual Pro (your virtual representation in this game). The game will ask you if you want to use a Virtual Pro as soon as you start your Captain your Country campaign.

You usually score in the range of 8.5+ as long as you score two goals. Scoring a hat-trick almost guarantees a 9.5+ rating. Keep these ratings high, and you'd be able to see your ranking (check the "Ranking" option on the main web page) soar. Once you get into the first team ("First XI") and play a game, "First Team Selection" should unlock.

Soon, you'll be made captain as long as you keep up the good work. Note that this usually happens in a B International, and will not unlock "The Captain". If you impress in this game, however, you should become captain in a full international, and the achievement will unlock.

Eventually, when you play well enough, you'll become Rank #1 in your team. Play the next game now to unlock "Manager's First Choice".

The most important criteria for a good rating are:

- Scoring goals
- Providing assists
- Staying at your position (use the markers shown when you're too far away from your position as guidelines)
- Successful tackles

 

Solid Performer10
Achieve an average match rating of 8 at the end of a single Captain your Country campaign. 

Another achievement that will come over the course of your "Captain your Country" campaign.

Just make sure you keep your match ratings above 8. I managed to get over 9.0 in every match I played until now, so you should be good if you keep scoring goals.

The most important criteria for a good rating are:

- scoring goals
- providing assists
- staying at your position (use the markers shown when you're too far away from your position as guidelines)
- successful tackles

If you're having any problems with getting match ratings above 8, try this:

Take the ball, go to your own end, keep passing ball to your team mate and ask him pass back. Keep doing this, sometimes you may have to change to the other side as your opponent comes too close.

 

Fair Play5
In a single Captain your country campaign Receive no match bans. 

Turn off bookings by selecting "My FIFA World Cup" from the Main Menu.

Then open "Game Settings", press three times to get to "Rules" and turn off bookings, then start a new "Captain your Country" campaign. This way, you won't get booked.

 

Hold the Line5
Earn a match rating of 8 or above as a Defender in Captain your Country. 

Start a new "Captain your Country" campaign and select a defender as your Pro - for instance Carles Puyol of Spain (center-back).

In your first match, try to get as many clean tackles as possible, as many pass completions as possible and keep track of your position (which is indicated by yellow pointers) and you should be good.

NOTE: Try to avoid sliding into your opponent (done so by pressing ) as this will do you more harm than good, it's better you only press to tackle your opponents, since this is a much less dangerous way of going into a challenge.

If you should happen to get a yellow card (or a red one, of course) restart the game.

 

Most Hat-tricks20
In Captain your Country score 2 or more hat-tricks in the Finals to beat the standing record. (3) 

Another achievement in "Captain your Country".

When your team has qualified for the World Cup, you're entering the Finals (group stage, round of 16, quarter finals, semi finals, final).

Score two or more hat-tricks - 3 goals in one game by one player - during the course of the World Cup.

This is best done with a striker, since basically, a striker's pure purpose is to score goals.

Change the difficulty if necessary, it absolutely helps to do this on Amateur.

 

2010 FIFA World Cup™ Mastery125

Then, all you have to do is FORFEIT the match with Controller 1 and keep on doing it as your team will get a default win of 3:0 and in the end will qualify for the World Cup, gaining all points. To forfeit a match, press when you're in-game and select the option "Forfeit Match" at the bottom of the menu.

For this achievement, you'll have to start another "2010 FIFA World Cup" campaign, and make sure to set the tournament type to "Qualifier", so you only play the qualification for the World Cup.

Make sure to set the region to Africa, select your team pressing , then press to advance and simply try to win all matches.

The qualification requirements for the region of Africa are as follows:

The first group stage consists of 12 groups of 4, with the group winners and 8 best runners-up advancing to the second group stage that consists of 5 groups of 4 - with group winners advancing to the World Cup.

NOTE: Use the 2-controller method mentioned above to make sure you finish first and qualify for the World Cup.

  • Argentina
  • Brazil

 

Victorious!100
Win the FIFA World Cup™ in a Captain your Country campaign. 

Not really much to say here; start a new "Captain your Country" campaign from the Main Menu, qualify for the World Cup and win it.

Playing with a 5-star team like Spain or England helps, as well as playing as a midfielder/striker to help your team score enough goals.

If you're having problems with this you can change the difficulty to Amateur.

 

Shameful0
I've quit out of at least 5 ranked matches while losing. (6) 

This works in any ranked game mode on Xbox Live.

I got this while playing "Online FIFA World Cup". Select your team, make sure you're behind (if your opponent doesn't score, go for an own goal) and quit out of the match.

Do this 5 times and this (stupid) Achievement will unlock.

 

 
Secret Achievements
 
First time on the world stage15
Play with a team in the Online FIFA World Cup™ that's never qualified for the real World Cup Finals. (2) 

There are much too many teams to post a list for this Achievement.

For anyone interested, all the teams that are white in this list have never qualified for the World Cup: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FIFA_Wo...tion_1934-2010

For this guide, I'm going to go with Finland.

Simply select "Online FIFA World Cup" in the Main Menu and select Finland as your team.

You don't have to win any games, just play a game with them.

 

adidas Golden Shoe25
Beat the standing record by scoring 10 goals in an Online FIFA World Cup™ with a single player. (5) 

During the World Cup, the player that has scored the most goals at the end of the tournament wins the so called "Golden Shoe".

I don't really understand why this achievement says the standing record is 10 goals, since Just Fontaine (France) scored 13 goals in 1958, but ok.

This one is a bit tricky, since you never know how good your opponent is.

Select "Online Fifaworldcup" in the Main Menu, select a 5-star team with good strikers/midfielders and score at least 10 goals in all matches (7 in total including the final) with one player.

If you're lucky and you get weak teams to play against during the group stage you can chalk this one off before the knockout stage.

Some teams with good forwards are:

EUROPE:


England - Wayne Rooney / Emile Heskey / Gabriel Agbonlahor
France - Karim Benzema / Nicolas Anelka / Thierry Henry / Franck Ribery
Italy - Vincenzo Iaquinta / Filipo Inzaghi / Andrea Pirlo
Spain - Fernando Torres / David Villa / Xavi / Iniesta / Cesc Fabregas

 

Better luck needed next time20
Finish the group stage without advancing to the Knockout stage of the Online 2010 FIFA World Cup™ 

Start a new "Online FIFA World Cup" from the Main Menu, select your team and lose every game to make sure you're not advancing past the group stage (first three games).

 

Practice Makes Perfect5
Enter the training grounds to practice after a loss. (2) 

This achievement will only work in either "Captain your Country" or "2010 FIFA World Cup" mode.

Simply lose a match and then select "Training" as soon as you're back in the Menu.

Instead of playing through a whole game to lose you can also quit out during a World Cup match, losing 0:3 by default. Then just hit training and the Achievement will unlock.

 

Pressure Cooker15
Score in a penalty shootout using your Virtual Pro and win the game. (9) 

First of all you have to start a new "Captain Your Country" campaign and either create a new Virtual Pro (your own virtual representation on the pitch) or import your FIFA 10 Virtual Pro.

When you start a new "Captain your Country" campaign, the game will immediately ask you if you want to create a Virtual Pro or import your FIFA 10 Virtual Pro.

As soon as this is done, assign your VP to a team and make sure that your team qualifies for the World Cup.

Once you're in the knockout stage (after your first three games), turn autosave off, save your game before the round of 16 and try to draw all the way until you get to the penalty shootout.

Score with your Virtual Pro, win the game and the Achievement will unlock.

If you're having problems with this, you can set the difficulty to amateur.

NOTE: This seems to work only in "Captain your Country" mode.

 

2 Button Mentor10
Play and win a co-op game where at least one user is on 2 Button Controls. (6) 

Start a game via "Penalty Shootout" from the Main Menu, make sure you have a second controller plugged in and move both controllers over to your preferred team.

Then press on any controller to open the controller settings, press either or to get to the controller layout screen.

Scroll up and change the preset to "2 Button". Whichever controller you did this with, this one will be on 2-button controls now.

Win the shootout and the Achievement will unlock.

 

2010 FIFA World Cup™ Fever10
Challenge and defeat someone with this achievement in the Online FIFA World Cup™. (4) 

This is a viral achievement, meaning that each player who has unlocked it will automatically spread this to anybody else he is playing from the moment he unlocked this Achievement.

Just keep playing "Online Fifaworldcup" and eventually you will run across somebody who has this Achievement.

Beat him and the Achievement will unlock.
