There are 20 achievements with a total of 200 points.
[x360a would like to thank Stufin135 for this Roadmap]
|Complete a game of 8 Ball, 9 Ball, and Snooker.|
Probably the simplest achievement and one of the first you will get. You just have to play each of the 3 game modes available (8 Ball, 9 Ball & Snooker). Win or lose it does not matter just as long as you finish the game.
|Defeat Pro opponent in any Single Player game.|
There is no real advice here for this one except try not to let the CPU not have many turns, none if possible. You change your difficulty by sliding the star difficult bar at the bottom all the way to the right.
|Sink or Swim||5|
|Sink 100 legal balls.|
See "Time Sink."
|Sink 1000 legal balls.|
Sinking a ball is to pot it, the ball must be legal (i.e. your colour/number ball). This achievement is cumulative. This will come naturally with playing the game. But to give you an idea of how long it will take roughly:
|Run the table (8 Ball).|
To run the table you must pot every single ball without the opponent getting a turn (this means you have to break). There is not much advice that can be given here except take your time, line up your shots as best as possible (thinking ahead for the next shot if you can). Also don't forget to change camera angles with the eye in the bottom left corner. Having a look from on top can be a great help.
|Run the table (9 Ball).|
To run the table you must pot every single ball without the opponent getting a turn (this means you have to break). Unlike "Running Man" this can be achieved in one shot by potting the 9 on the break. So this should unlock whilst going for "Eagle Eye".
|Sink 2 legal balls in one stroke.|
See "Master Blaster."
|Sink 3 legal balls in one stroke.|
This is one of the more difficult achievements to get and once again seems heavily based on luck. Whilst going for "Jet Setter" & "Fat Cat" you hopefully should get this in one of your games. If not IEvil IMonkey has try providing some tips on how to get it here: http://www.xbox360achievements.org/f...81&postcount=2
|Sink the 8 ball on the break (8 Ball).|
See "Eagle Eye."
|Sink the 9 ball on the break (9 Ball).|
ISAAC1982 has made a very helpfull guide complete with pictures as to how to tackle these achievements. Check it out here: http://www.xbox360achievements.org/f...19&postcount=3
|Sink the 9 ball on a combo (9 Ball).|
To get this achievement you have to pot the 9 and at least one other ball whilst playing 9 Ball. This one is heavily based on luck, but obviously the more balls on the table the higher the odds. Try to aim the legal ball into the 9 so that will go in. If you put a lot of power and have a lot of luck another ball could go in. This will come eventually for you and could come whilst going for the "Sure Shot" & "Master Blaster" achievements.
|Accumulate 1,000,000 Scratch.|
This achievement will probably one of the last you get. It will take a very long time to get so a lot of grinding will be involved. On average you will net 500-800 Scratch for winning a game and gaing bonus Scratch for combo shots, winning under five minutes, etc. If you loose a game you are looking around 200 Scratch. So you are looking arond 2000 games (if you win everyone netting 500 Scratch) or 5000 games (if you loose every match netting 200 Scratch). Realistically you are looking around a good 200+ hours playing single player.
|Brave New World||5|
|Win an online match.|
See "Lobby Lizard."
|Win 20 online matches.|
To get this achievement just keep playing online games and eventually you will win 20 games. It does not have to be in a row and can be on any of the three game modes.
|Win 5 Snooker games.|
This one shouldn't cause to much bother, just aim to win all your Snooker games, choosing to play easy opponents to make it much easier. If you are having troubles beating the AI then choose to play Multiplayer > Pass and Play. This way you can just keep playing fouls for Player 2 to get some easy points whilst obviously potting the balls with Player 1 to win.
NOTE: Only Player 1 will unlock the achievement
|Lose 50 games.|
Not a difficult achievement to get at all. The chances are this will come naturally with playing games online and playing lots of games to get the "Jet Setter" & "Fat Cat" achievements. If not you can choose to grind it by just simply loosing 50 games.
|Purchase all Pool Halls from the Pro Shop.|
To unlock Jet Setter you need to buy all of the Pool Halls from the Pro Shop on the Main Menu. The Pool Halls you have to buy are as follows:
|King of the Hill||10|
|Have an Overall Win Ratio of 80% or more with at least 5 online games played.|
The first part to go for in the achievement is your 5 online played games, win or loose it does not matter you just have to play 5. Once you have that done you just need to build up the wins to get you back up to the 80%. The lowest amount of wins and loses you can have is 4 wins and 1 loss.
|Win at least 700 Scratch in one Single Player game.|
This one might come whilst going for the "Fat Cat" & "Jet Setter" achievements. If not you will just have to make sure you win game, aim for as many bonus Scratch as possible (Win under 3/5 minutes, Combo Pots, Etc.). Also playing on higher difficulties gives more Scratch for wins, so try to play on Pro Difficulty.
|Achieve a score of at least 147 in Snooker.|
This one will be a pain trying to go for against the AI since it will require you to get a max break (potting every red followed up with a black, then potting all the colours) as well as getting your opponent to perform a few foul shots. Luckily you can get this achievement in Mulitplayer > Pass and Play. Simply make sure player 1 is potting all the balls and that Player 2 keeps committing foul shots to give Player 1 4 points each time. Once Player 1 has reached 147 points finish the game to get the achievement.
