Introduction:
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows is much more combat orientated than the previous Harry Potter games. It has even been called "A Third Person Speller" by some. This game focuses entirely on combat with little to no exploration that made the previous games moderately entertaining.

Preparation:
It will take you at least three playthroughs to get all of the achievements because the difficulty achievements don't stack. Hard difficulty won't be that much of a challenge and the other two playthroughs shouldn't take you that long to complete. There are six achievements related to collectibles in the game, a video collectible guide can be found here.

Easy, medium, and hard playthroughs
You will unlock thirteen achievements by simple playing through the story. Other achievements are tied to kills, leveling up, and using potions and spells. You should reach level 20 if you defeat all of the enemies that you come across throughout the game. After completing your first playthrough prepare for another two to finish up all of the single player achievements.

Online achievements:
There are four online achievements and they are relatively quick and easy to obtain. Two achievements will come by simply completing the fifteen online challenges that are available. For Survivalist you will need to 5-star a hard challenge, hard challenge four is recommended for this achievement. To obtain Friendly Rivals you will need to compare one of your challenge results with a friend's result. If you have no friends who have the game you can create a second account and add that account as a friend to obtain this achievement. This achievement has been reported as being glitchy and won't unlock for some. There is no known solution to sort this yet.

Kinect achievements:
There are three achievements you get for completing all of the Kinect missions. There are 22 Kinect missions, 12 solo and 10 co-op. By the time you have completed all of the Kinect missions you should have unlocked Capable Casting which is the final Kinect achievement.

Conclusion:
This game's achievements are easy to obtain but they are time consuming. The fact you have to have Kinect to gain all of the achievements may deter some though. Although if you do have Kinect these are some of the easiest achievements available for it.

A Desperate Betrayal20
Uncover some answers in exchange for freedom. (1) 

This is unlocked through story progression. Immediately after unlocking A Clue to Investigate, you will have to survive for three minutes. If you don’t want to fight, or are playing on Hard, I suggest putting your back against a hole in the wall and holding for Protego. When less than one minute remains, two Dementors will appear in or around the house. Kill them, then use Protego again. When the time runs out, the fight is over and the achievement is yours.

A Valiant Friend20

This is unlocked through story progression. During the fight with Bellatrix and company just survive a few moments until a friend comes to your rescue.

Dragon Dodge10

After unlocking An Unexpected Ally, you will be presented with three missions to be completed in any order. The Dark Caves is the mission to complete, and upon finishing it you will receive this achievement.

Wand-master20
Use every spell in the game successfully at least once. (2) 

To unlock this achievement, you need only to cast each spell, not use them on someone or something. Some spells will unlock through story-based collection, others will unlock based on Harry’s level. By the time you unlock A Friend from Afar, you should be able to get this. Simply choose a spell from the wheel with , cast it, and move on to the next spell. Expecto Patronum (Tap, then hold ), and Protego (Hold ) are spells as well. Alternately, you can play XBL/Local 'Easy Challenge 1', where all spells are already unlocked.

Liquid Experience20
Use all available potions in the game successfully. (3) 

Similar to Wand-master, you need to throw each of the four potions in order to count. You should be able to do this before A Friend from Afar at the least. However, you must also consume each of the potions dropped by enemies. The instruction book has a listing of them, and it will come naturally if you are picking up all yellow orbs.

Confusion Reigns5
Cast Confundo to cause an opponent to defeat other enemies. 

To unlock this achievement, simply choose Confundo from the spell wheel and cast it upon an enemy. It can be cast on Death Eaters, Snatchers, or Inferni.

Got it Covered!10
Cast Wingardium Leviosa to create cover against incoming spells. 

After receiving Wingardium Leviosa, cast it on a barrel or sheet of metal nearby, while still holding . Once an enemy shoots the item, this achievement will unlock. I waited until the Quarry side-quest level, as you begin the level in front of usable objects.

A Strong Shield5
20 Protego deflects. 

You need only to cast Protego by holding while under fire. Once twenty shots have hit your new shield, the achievement will unlock. Keep in mind this is cumulative and likely natural if playing on Hard.

Reached Level 2050
Increase Harry’s abilities to level 20. (1) 

Harry will unlock spells and receive health and spell power increases by leveling up in combat. This will happen naturally through story progression. If you are feeling impatient, levels involving Acromantula will give you a small boost if you stand still and destroy all the spawning spiders. They usually are in waves of 2-3 at a time, with around 5-8 waves. View your current level and XP meter at any time by pausing the game. If you kill most everything you come across, this will easily happen before the last level.

Defeated 100 Enemies10
Defeat 100 enemies in Story Mode. (1) 

See Defeated 1000 Enemies

Defeated 250 Enemies25
Defeat 250 enemies in Story Mode. 

See Defeated 1000 Enemies

Defeated 500 Enemies50
Defeat 500 enemies in Story Mode. 

See Defeated 1000 Enemies

Defeated 1000 Enemies75
Defeat 1000 enemies in Story Mode. (3) 

For these achievements, simply destroy or defeat the required number of enemies. This can also include Dementors. The level in which you follow a Patronum through the woods has a huge amount of spiders in it. I suggest standing still when you get to each batch of them and letting them spawn until there are none left. Then move to the next batch, repeat. These achievements are cumulative, and if you don't have it by the end of the game, you should get it within the second level of another play through.

Ron’s Saviour10
Defeat 35 Acromantula. 

This can come naturally if you kill all spiders you come across. Often, they will quickly spawn again in groups and the Expulso spell makes short work of groups of them.

Expert Aim25
50 quick Stuns. (5) 

A quick Stuns is simply a head shot. This is done easiest with Stupify, without holding . You can get head shots with , but it is not that frequent. Simply get 50 head shots and the achievement is yours.

From Under the Cloak25
50 stealthy Stuns. (12) 

A stealthy Stun is performed by sneaking behind someone while using the Invisibility Cloak, then holding for Protego. Note that this will bring you out of cloak, and not always kill the enemy. Repeat 50 times, and you're done.

First Showing10
Post a result online for a Challenge for your Friends to compare. (3) 

This is completed by choosing Challenges from the main menu, then choosing and finishing any Xbox Live Challenge. Once complete, it will unlock. If you are having trouble getting it to unlock, check the Xbox Live Leaderboards menu after completing a challenge.

Comprehensive Showing 10
Post a result online for every Challenge for your Friends to compare. (8) 

Similar to First Showing, this achievement requires the completion of every Xbox Live Challenge on each difficulty, totaling 15 in all. The achievement unlocks upon the end of your final challenge.

Survivalist30
Get a 5 star rating on any Hard Challenge! 

Simply complete any of the five Hard Xbox Live Challenges for this to unlock. I suggest Hard Challenge 4, as you do not have to actually fight anyone, and need only to run up the path on your left and follow it. When reaching the top landing with ruins, head left. You need only get less than 01:30 as your time, and I got 01:14 after stopping to fight once.

Friendly Rivals5
Compare your ranking on any Challenge with a Friend on your Friends list. (3) 

In order to obtain this, you must have a person on your Friends list that has completed the same challenge as you. Once at the Xbox Live Leaderboards, press to sort your rank among friends, and the achievement will appear. Alternately, if you have two profiles on your box, use one to view the board as long as both are on corresponding Friend Lists.

Defender against the Dark Arts25

This is unlocked after completing the game on Easy and is NOT stackable.

Auror Material35

This is unlocked after completing the game on Hard and is NOT stackable.

Demented10
Spurn a Dementor's Kiss. 

To unlock this, wait until a Dementor is near you and visibly removing your soul, not just icing the screen over. Cast Expecto Patronum by tapping, then holding to discourage your new lover, and you will be rewarded. There are many levels that feature Dementors, so you have multiple chances.

Wizarding Workout40

This is unlocked upon completion of the final Kinect mission. These missions are accessed from the main menu, under "Kinect" (when the device is connected).
