This is one of the few games that are almost impossible to receive a full 1000. Only a few people on this site have actually achieved this. All but one of the achievements are fairly easy to obtain. The one that most people do not have and never will is “To be this good takes AGES”. As the name states: it takes ages to get this achievement. Also note that AGES spelled backwards is SEGA.
This game requires only one playthrough but it also requires that you play several tennis matches not related to the main game. These matches include online achievements and co-op achievements. These are very easy to obtain, especially when boosting with other people in this thread.
Step#1: To start off, you will want to play through the game’s story mode. Though it doesn’t have a plot or any type of story line, it is a sequence of events therefore it is to be called a story mode. The story mode for this game is known as SuperStars mode. This area of the game is fairly straightforward and doesn’t require a lot of guidance. Simply start a new game and play through every mini-game, tennis match, and tennis tournament. Each stage requires that you meet certain criteria before you can proceed to the next level. SuperStars mode does not require you to play it in one sitting or one straightforward line. You can exit a level at any time you wish and your previous data will still be saved. Upon completion of SuperStars mode, you could have obtained a total of 35 achievements which is worth 780. You most likely will not have this unless you are very skilled at this game. Continue this walkthrough to learn how to obtain missing achievements.
Step#2: Now that you have completed SuperStars mode, you are ready to move on to co-op mode. There is only one achievement that requires you to be in co-op and that is “Party Time”. This achievement is very simple to obtain.
Step#3: This step is for Tournament mode. Start off by playing a new tournament via the main screen and select the character you wish to play as. Play through all tennis matches with at least a score of AA. When you defeat the last stage of the tournament, an achievement will unlock. If you have a least a score of AA for each match, then you will be sent into a bonus match against Dr. Eggman. He is very hard to beat but keep trying and/or restarting the match until you beat him. Upon completion of this a second achievement will unlock.
Step#4: This is the final step. Now you are ready to obtain all of the online achievements. This is best done by boosting with another person and should only take about 45 minutes to unlock all of the achievements. Refer to the achievement guide for instructions and this thread for boosting.
If you are missing any achievements, which you probably are, simple refer to the achievement guide for this game located below. The guide gives great information on how to obtain all missing achievements. Overall, this is a fun game to play and relax with, but very hard to get a full 1000.
[x360a would like to thank Monopoly Man 93 for this road map]
|Win your first match||(1)|
First select Match form the main menu, then choose singles match. Then choose any character for your player, against any other character for the CPU, and select these settings for the match:
|Win with all 8 starting characters||(2)|
For this you must win a match with each of the 8 starting characters, who are:
|Beat them All||30|
|Beat all characters in Singles matches||(1)|
This achievement will come by going through SuperStars mode and defeating all the characters. If for some reason you didn't beat them all in Superstars mode, then just play a quick match against all of them once you unlock all 8 hidden characters.
|Beat all the classic Doubles pairs||(1)|
This is another one that should come to you while playing through Superstars mode. If not, the classic doubles pairs are as follows then just play a quick doubles match against all the pairs:
|Hit a SEGA court cameo||(2)|
Start a match from the main menu, and get the match going with any settings you like. What you're going to have to do is to hit one of the spectators on the sides of the course. Hit the ball on sharp angles over and over until you hit one of the spectators. The achievement will unlock as soon as you do.
|To The Max||20|
|Hit 3 Max serves in a row||(7)|
For this I suggest setting a singles match as follows to give you the maximum available chances to serve:
|Enter Superstar mode 10 times in a match||(1)|
For this I suggest setting up a single Match as follows to give you the Maximum amount of time to gain your 10 Superstar modes:
|Hit a 40 shot rally||(1)|
This achievement is easiest achieved the same way as "Top Gun," but instead set the match up with the following settings:
|Hit 100 aces||(2)|
The easiest way to get this achievement is to get two controllers, and then select "Match." Once on the Character select screen hit on the second controller, pick a character for both players, and begin the match. Then set the match up with the following settings:
|Hit a serve over 100mph / 160kph|
To get this all you really have to do is hit a Perfect Serve. To do this hit the or button to start your serve, and when the 5 stars fill up on the screen, hit the or button again. This will give you a perfect serve and get you the maximum speed.
|Run a total of 10 kilometers / 6 miles.|
This achievement will come over time by playing through Superstars mode and on Xbox LIVE. You can check your amount of distance ran by going to the main menu, then selecting options, then selecting records, then look for "Distance Traveled." It is in meters so you need to get 10,000 meters to equal 10 kilometers, for those not familiar with metric.
|Step into SEGA World||10|
|Complete your first Challenge (Rank A)|
First you must enter Superstars mode from the Main Menu. Then enter any one of the playable levels, and play the first mini-game. Complete the requirements for that specific level to get yourself an A rank. For example, if you have to play a tennis match for the game, you just need to win that game to get an A ranking.
|Complete all Challenges in one SEGA game (Rank A)||(3)|
See "Step into SEGA World," but instead of completing the achievement for one of the mini-games, do it for all mini-games for a level.
|Complete all Challenges in all SEGA games (Rank A)||(2)|
Please see "To be this good takes AGES"
|To be this good takes AGES||60|
|Complete all Challenges in all SEGA games (Rank AAA)||(13)|
This is another tough one since gaining AAA scores on all the mini-games will take some time and patience. The basics of getting AAA scores is by gaining a lot more then what the requirement is. The majority of the mini-games require at least triple or double the basic requirement to pass with a AAA score. The tennis matches, including the tournaments, require you to go through the entire thing without losing a point to the CPU. The trick to doing it with ease is if you're losing in a match, no matter how far you are into the tourney, you can hit and retry, and you'll stay on the same opponent.
|Unlock all Secret Characters|
The Secret characters are unlocked by playing through Superstars mode, The following are who you can unlock. Each is unlocked through their own achievement, and there is a listing as to which explains how to unlock them:
|Play the Field||30|
|Unlock all Secret Courts|
You unlock courts by progressing through Superstars mode from the main menu the names of the courses and how to unlock them are listed below:
|Unlock all Ball Games|
The names of the ball games to unlock and how to unlock them are listed below:
|Magical Sound Shower||30|
|Unlock all Secret Music Tracks||(1)|
Secret music tracks are unlocked by progressing through Superstars mode on the main menu. The names of the music tracks, and how to unlock them are listed below:
|Climb the Ladder||20|
|Win the final stage in Tournament mode|
Select Tournament mode from the main menu, and then select Doubles. You will only have to win three matches in doubles, so its easier and faster then going through the single player tournament. After winning the third match the achievement will unlock.
|Beat the hidden stage in Tournament mode||(8)|
For this achievement you need to go to tournaments on the main menu, and then you should select singles. You then need to make your way through the tiers, making sure to get at least a AA score on each match. After doing that, you will be granted access to the hidden stage, which is against Dr.Eggman that you must win. If you're finding it hard to beat him, remember you can hit , then select retry to restart the match until you win.
|Rescue 500 ChuChus over time!|
From the Main Menu, select Superstars mode, and go into the ChuChu Rocket level (you have to unlock it first by playing through Superstars mode). Then play through each of the mini-games. The majority of these require you to rescue ChuChu's, so getting 500 should not be a problem.
|Hit an 8 zombie combo!||(1)|
For this you have to play the Curien Mansion level in Supstars mode. Unlock the 4th mini-game, called Use the Power Ups. Once you begin, you will have a choice of three power ups to pick from. Choose Big Shot which is the large tennis ball, then just wait for the zombies to get real close to you near the bottom, and then start swinging. If you aim it correctly, you should get 8 in one shot. If not, keep trying this level over and over until you do.
|Clear a Tag without missing a shot!|
From the Main menu select Superstars mode and go into the Jet Set Radio level, which is the second mini-game to be unlocked. Once the game begins, look at the tag to be painted and study its colors. Then pick up the paint and shoot the ball onto the empty letter to paint it. You must not miss with any shot on your way to filling in the tag, there are some really easy ones to fill up so this shouldn't be to hard.
|Clear a 20 Puyo combo!||(5)|
For this is I suggest doing it on the 7th mini-game in the PuyoPop Fever level, because for that mini-game you will be clearing large walls of puyo, and there is more then enough chances to get a combo of 20 or even higher.
|Collect 7 Chaos Emeralds in one game!|
To get this achievement you must do it in the games section, NOT in the Superstars mode. Go to Games on the main menu, then select single player, then choose a character, then select the Sonic The Hedgehog game. This can be frustrating and might just be the toughest achievement in the game. You goal is to collect rings and get to the bonus stages where you get emeralds by gathering all coins in a bonus stage. All I can tell you is to keep moving, don't try for coins that are near the top (AKA being greedy) and always collect the power ups that appear aside from the speed one since that seems to hurt you more then anything. A good thing to remember when you're playing, is making it to level 9 will basically restart your easy factor since level nine is the same as level one.
|Destroy the Final Squilla in under 20 seconds!|
Play through the Space Harrier level in Superstars mode until you reach the 9th mini-game (called Squilla Attack). What you need to do here is destroy the third Squilla that comes out in under 20 seconds. All you have to do is hit him in the head a few times to defeat him, just make sure the aiming reticle is on his head, and shoot the balls at him. You really need to defeat 5 Squillas in this mini-game to achieve the AAA score, but you only need to defeat the third one to get this achievement.
|Clear 4 Trick Shots in one game!||(2)|
Play through the Super Monkeyball level until you reach the mini-game called "Make a Trickshot." Have a look at what you need to do to make the shot, which is to get the black ball into the gate. The easiest way to explain it is just to hit the white ball in the dead center with lots of power, and you will make the shot. Getting four black balls in the gates will also get you a AAA score for this mini-game.
|Destroy Kong without being hit!|
First you must unlock the Virtua Squad level in Superstars mode. Then you have to make it to the 7th mini-game, which is the fight against Kong. He is really quite simple to defeat, all you have to do to defeat him is alternate between him and the guys below. So shoot one guy below, then shoot Kong. Rinse and repeat until he is dead. Make sure not to get hit to unlock the achievement.
|Play each type of Ball Game Multiplayer|
For this achievement you need to have two controllers hooked up to your Xbox 360, and you also need to have unlocked all the ball games (Please see the "Score Attacker" for means on how to unlock all the ball games).
|Surf the Net||10|
|Win a Match on Xbox LIVE||(23)|

|Let's Get Friendly||20|
|Win 10 Xbox LIVE Player matches||(31)|
These can be done legitimately or with a boosting partner. From the main menu, select Xbox LIVE, and then go to "Player Match." You can set the game up any way you wish. You can do either a singles match or doubles match, or a combination of the two. Just cumulatively get 10 wins and you will unlock this achievement. If you are boosting, select doubles each time, and you will be able to unlock "Ball Buddies" while you're working towards this achievement.
|Space Channel 5||10|
|Watch a match on TV||(1)|
From the main menu select Xbox LIVE, then select TV, then go into the Live Channels, and search for a game that is being played. Once you find one, highlight it and enter it to begin watching the match. You must watch the game until it ends to unlock this, so just sit back and watch or do whatever you want just make sure to watch the entire thing.
|Swinging Report Show||30|
|Become a TV Superstar||(5)|
For this achievement, someone on LIVE must watch one of your highlights. For this I suggest getting a buddy to go in the game select menu at the same time you are playing a ranked match. Then he should keep refreshing the list until your name appears then have him/her watch the highlight, and the achievement will unlock for you.
|"I am the world's Ultimate Life Form."||(1)|
