Condemned Achievements

Golden Bird Award

You found all birds in the game

See this walkthrough:

for locations of all birds/metals/TV's. I suggest to print out the guide and just follow it step-by-step, pausing after every step to read the next and move on. If you miss something, you can reload a chapter and do it over, but you must get ALL the birds/metals the next time, not just the one you missed.

I can't get this achievement for the life of me, no matter how many times I finish the game with all the birds collected... is there some sort of unknown trick to it or something?

Sadly, think ive read somewhere before this achievement is glitchy. Ive also
managed to get all the dead birds in all the levels and still not been awarded
this achievement, so if ANYONE knows a way to have it unlock thatd be very

Not sure if this was a mistake on the developers but I'm pretty sure you have to not only get all the birds, but TVs AND metal pieces for it to unlock

I had the opposite happen. I missed a bird in the library level, and so I clicked on (?)X to restart level. When I collected the bird on the table in the foyer I got the Gold Bird Achievement (50p), though I definately havent got all the other birds in the game. (Also, the bird which I picked up when I received this achievement was not the one I missed.)

I found something on Gamespot forum and here what someone claim to be possibly the problem:

I just went back through the school level recollecting all the birds and finally got the achievement. Also, I originally didn't get the fourth propaganda report when I first played through even though I had collected all metal pieces. So this is what I have determined.
If you save a check point and then quit in the middle of a level, you will not get the overall achievement (ie: golden bird/ fourth prop report), if you continue the chapter later. Also, if you are gathering collectibles and miss some you must recollect all birds/metals if you are going to continue to the next chapter after the summery screen. I'm not sure if this problem would be avoided by g

going to the main menu from the summery page and then selecting the next chapter.
I hope that helps

If you follow the guide that is linked you should be warned that some of these
are listed out of order. I would suggest a youtube guide but the only one I found have
very annoying commentary. Either way if you use one or the other your screwed in
some form.

Ok, an update. After beating the game on hard and getting every bird and metal piece I was still missing this achievement and propaganda reports 3 and 4. Today I loaded up a new game on easy and after collecting all 6 bird for Weisman Office building I got this achievement. My 3rd and 4th reports unlocks after collecting metal pieces 2 and 3. If you don't end up getting the achievements after finishing the game, try loading the first chapter on easy and collecting everying, only takes a few minutes. You might end up as happy as I am now.

For me it's the FIRST propaganda report and the gold bird that won't open. On my 3rd playthru. If that doesn't work im going to delete my gamesaves off my hd and try again.

i just got this game for £2 so I'm gonna give this achievement a try, no worries if i don't get it, I'm more curious as to why there is less than 1000g for it, can anyone answer that?

@ #18 - this was one of the very first Xbox 360 games released (back in November 2005 - only 6 months after launch), so I am guessing that there may not have been tight controls on the number / total gamerscore awarded for achievements.

Just to chip in my two cents, here is what happened to me: After finishing all ten levels, I did not get this achievement or the final two propaganda reports. After looking online forever and thinking they were glitched I realized that I may have made a simple mistake. When I played through chapter 3, I died and missed a bird. After finishing the level I replayed it and grabbed one bird which gave me the silver bird cheevo for the level, but ended up missing a bird and two metals. I thought both play throughs counted, but apparently not. If yu dont get this cheevo, be sure you played thru every level without loading and collecting every piece. My cheevos popped right away wen I replayed chapter 3.

@Ghost, my advice is to start a new game on easy and just fly through it making totally sure (via the printable checklist) that you dont miss any birds. Be sure if you die that you replay the entire chapter and get every bird again, even if it says you already got 5 or 6. If I'm way off the mark, I'm sorry. Good luck.
