Finish on hardest difficulty

Finish the story on the hardest difficulty.   

The game is not much harder on this difficulty. However, I suggest that you complete every other achievement before you do this especially the OWLS and the Gobstones and Chess. They are much more difficult on the Hard difficulty.

Ok, there are problems with this achievement and so I will list some of the solutions that have been brought forward to unlock this.

*If you have not begun to play this game yet, and are simply looking through to see how difficult the achievements are, before you begin the game turn auto save OFF!

1. If, on your first play through you played on Hard, but the achievement did not unlock, it is suggested that you complete everything now. Once you have every other achievement other than completion on Hard, go into your options and turn auto-save off. Your achievement MIGHT unlock. If it does not, quit out of the game, go to your dashboard, memory, then delete the HP save file. Start up a new game on HARD, but before you start turn the autosave off.


2. If, on your first play through you played on Easy, and then played through on Hard but no achievement. Go into the options menu and turn auto save off. This is how I gained my achievement.

I had to play it through in one sitting with no saves at all (manual or autosave) to unlock the achievement. The first time I did it on hard in several sittings and it didn't unlock.

For anyone still doing this in 2013. The guide gives some good advice but could do with a bit of detail in certain parts.

I first played this game in Normal difficulty, as I do with most games. The only achievement left was this one. On my normal play through everything was defaulted (Autosave ON). As soon as I inserted the game this time round I turned OFF Autosave. Then I went to New Game, I selected an empty slot and made sure that in the options before you start a new game, it says Autosave Off. However as I played the game I wasn't sure what happens when you die or get defeated as I haven't been ever and no one is talking about. I did use the Save Adventure feature. I manually saved the game 3 times during the play through, I died twice, but DID NOT ever load or quit the game. I pl

I played through it in one go and being a perfectionist it took 7 hours but it popped up soon after the end cutscene. Hope that helps.

Hard mode is a joke. So easy. Only thing that gets hard are the mini games like the OWLS
