Introduction
Men In Black: Alien Crisis is based off of the popular film Men In Black, and is another one of those easy to complete movie games. Two playthroughs are needed as you will unlock the Elite Agent difficulty upon completion of Agent. Make sure you have access to two controllers in order to complete the competitive V.R missions located in split-screen. The game's story mode consists of eight chapters that can easily be completed in around 3 hours.

Step 1: Playing Through The Game
Play through the game and unlock as many achievements as you can. You will need to complete the game on Agent in order to unlock the Elite Agent difficulty. If you focus on getting the kills with specific weapons then you will come out to around 780G on your first playthrough. Completing the story will take no more than 3 1/2 hours and is extremely easy. Try to upgrade your weapons and attachments as much as possible to give you an advantage when playing on Elite Agent. 

Step 2: Elite Agent Playthrough
You will need to first change the difficulty to Elite Agent by entering the "Extras" located in the Main Menu. Extras > Change Difficulty > Elite Agent. Go into Chapter Select and start completing the missions. You may not even notice the increase of difficulty from your Agent playthrough since it's just as easy, and will probably only find certain boss battles to be a little more difficult then the first time playing. All of your upgrades will carry over from your Agent playthrough so I you shouldn't have a problem with making it through the missions.

Step 3: Competitive V.R Missions + Mop Up
After completing the game you will need to finish off the competitive V.R missions. There will be 12 missions that you will need to complete for the achievement. All of your upgrades will be carried over from your other two playthroughs so I suggest finishing these last. You will need access to two controllers in order to beat these, but you will not need any other assistance from a friend. The second player will follow you throughout the missions so it shouldn't be a problem. Make sure you take a look at the "Duelist" and "Conqueror" achievements listed in the guide.

Use Chapter Select to clean up any other achievements that you have missed during your first two playthroughs. If you have taken a good look in the guide then you shouldn't have a problem cleaning them up.

Conclusion
Men In Black: Alien Crisis is another one of those quick and easy 1000 games which only contains a few difficult achievements. You shouldn't have any problems completing the story on Elite Agent. Just make sure you update your weapons and attachments while progressing through the game.

Save the Universe50
Completed all the missions in Story Mode

Senior Agent60
Completed Story Mode as an Elite Agent (8) 
Elite Agent is unlocked after completing the game on Agent. From the Main Menu, Extras > Change Difficulty > Elite Agent. Make sure you do NOT start a new save; continue the game by using Chapter Select. This will allow you to keep all of your upgraded weapons and attachments for the playthrough.

You shouldn't run into any problems with your Elite Agent playthrough except for a few deaths from some of the bosses. The Elite Guards and bosses may be a pain sometimes but you shouldn't have a problem as long as you make good use of your attachments.
 
Elite Agent Tips:
  • Upgrade your weapons and attachments! This is extremely helpful and the upgraded attachments will help you tremendously during boss fights.
  • The Std. Issue 1995, BANGer, and Tribarrel are probably the best guns in the game so try to use those for most of the playthrough.
  • Taking cover is useless at times when you are low on health. Try to kill the aliens as fast as you can to gain health pick-ups.

Conqueror25
Achieved at least 300,000 points in one V.R. Mission (P1) 

Scoring 300,000+ points is not hard at all as you will more than likely achieve well over 1 million in a mission. Just rapidly kill as many aliens you can while performing combos and you should have no problem. An easy way to gain a lot of points is by performing the "Caught" combo: Equip the Anti-Gravity Grenade by holding  and pressing  on the d-pad, then fire a grenade into a group of enemies by pressing . Spray the aliens down as fast as you can to achieve higher multipliers and more points.

Hide’n’Seek10
Scanned 2 hidden aliens in Story Mode (4) 

*If you do not feel like finding the second alien or going back through Chapter Select, you can scan one alien, restart checkpoint, then go back and scan him again for the achievement.*

The first alien is near the end of Chapter 4 when you are leaving the museum. Once you come outside you will spot several aliens and humans out on the street. The alien that is hiding inside the human body is on the left behind the police car.

The second alien that you will need to scan is located at the end of Chapter 7. As soon as you are finished with the flying section, you will come to some stairs leading down to the fountain. There will be several aliens and humans on the stairs. The alien that is hiding is at the bottom left of the stairs. 

You can use chapter select if you miss out on the achievement in your first run of the game.

Capture and neuralize seven humans and the achievement is yours. 

Brute Force20
Achieved a 25x multiplier in Story Mode (4) 

Your multiplier is displayed on the top right of your HUD. An easy spot to gain a 25x multiplier is on Chapter 2 when you are fighting Serleena. You will be able to get a 25x+ multiplier as long as you avoid shooting the yellow petals on her. The achievement will unlock after finishing her off.
There will be plenty of chances later on in the game so don't stress if you miss unlocking it here.

Group Off20
Destroyed 3 enemy platforms in Story Mode 

The platforms are the enemy ships which usually contain three or more enemies on them. You will be able to shoot these down during any of the flying sequences. Take them down with a rocket by using .

Road Hog20
Defeated 40 bikers in Story Mode

Dodge and Weave20
Dodged the mines placed by Nethera in Story Mode (8) 

This is probably the most difficult achievement in the game. During the flying sequence in Chapter 7 Nethera will be laying down mines that you will need to avoid. As you are chasing her she will set down 3 sets of electric mines. If you think that you may have hit a mine then restart the section. Take notice of your multiplier on the top-right of your screen. If it turns red then you have been hit by a mine. 

  • The first set consists of 5 stationary mines that can easily be avoided by weaving through them.
  • The second set will be a little more challenging, as you will need to dodge 8 vertical and horizontal mines. You will first have to dodge 4 vertical mines that are moving side by side. Try to stay in the middle of the screen to avoid them. After dodging the vertical mines, there will be 4 horizontal mines moving up and down the screen. Keep right of the screen and maneuver up and down to dodge the mines.
  • The last set will be the most challenging of the sets and may cause some frustration. You will first need to dodge 2 mines together, one horizontal and one vertical. Try to stay to the bottom-right of the screen to avoid hitting them. Next you will need to dodge two of the same combination of mines but on opposite sides. Try to stay towards the middle for the first one then quickly move to the top-right to dodge the second mine. Lastly, there will be 3 mines that are spinning in circles. Stay to the bottom-right of the screen to dodge them.

*If you think you didn't get hit by a mine but didn't get the achievement - Dashboard while you're still in the car and copy your save to a USB. Doing this will allow you to retry the flying sequence without having to restart the entire level over again.*
