Awesome! No multiplayer achievements and no secret achievements. A pretty solid FPS list too.

Truthfully was hoping for some MP cheevos. Not as much fun to play without them.

@5 Multiplayer achievements are worse than cancer as you get fuckin' retards running around trying to get kills in a special way.

I'm going to refrain from getting this game now just incase I end up in a game with you and you spread your dumbshit ideas to me.

And no, I'm not trolling. I fucking hate achievement whores and multiplayer achievements. All they do is corrupt games.

for a game such as this which my prediction is that the multiplayer community won't be that big for long so having no multiplayer achievements is great.

The FUBAR Difficulty def seems to be a challenge i geus. This said i coudn,t agree more with @7 All MP achievements do is having alot of gamers getting on and trying to boost the living crap out of it, then u take ur time and wanna have a go and getting owned by gamers that already reached the highest rank available and also own all the power weapons and then u in return with ur level 1 weapons get serious owned and then those same guys boosting the crap out of it wanna tell u how much skill they have...yeah right! My ass! xD

and if your gunna slag people off then your tolling!
coz your even using this site for what its made for LOOKING UP/UNLOCKING ACHIEVEMENTS!!

I think the game and achieves look good BTW.

Thursday, June 28, 2012 @ 09:17:04 AM

Absolutely agree - MP achievements completely suck. Just take Assassin's Creed, for example, what the hell is an essentially single player game like that doing with multiplayer achievements? In my opinion, if a game's focus is on campaign/story, as this one seems to be, then there should only be single player achievements. Likewise, if the focus is MP, then by all means have MP cheevos.

Friday, June 29, 2012 @ 02:46:55 PM

I like completing games and getting cheeves, but I also hate mp achievements. Its ok if its stuff you can knock out easily, but bullshit like max payne making you play to get level 50 and all this stupid shite, especially when a game has awful multiplayer, it is just a kick in the nuts, moreso when it is a hard highly unlikely achievement to get, like Homefront's maximum party achievement, impossible and glitched. MP achievements prevent you from progressing as they rely on other people which if you have no friends with the game or people arent playing a certain way you cannot get them, just like with Brink. So yeah MP cheeves are gay and this list seems pretty decent.

@7 Can you explain why you are waisting your life away complaining on a Achievement hunting website if you hate achievement hunters? You need to calm down and not get so pissed off over somebody sharing their opinion you just made yourself look really stupid because you have nothing better to do than sitting on websites and complaining.

Wouldn't making the hardest difficulty easy be kind of stupid?

Comment #28 by CraKeLL
Monday, July 02, 2012 @ 08:39:23 AM

@27 Well it depends if Fubar is really stupid hard or not. I mean i have started on suicide mission difficulty and that's solid hard, and there's normally a massive difference between 2nd hardest and hardest difficulty. ie; Call of duty, hardened and veteran big difference....

do the diffuclties stack like if i go to the second hardest difficulty will that stack for the two easiest?

Comment #31 by Gib247
Friday, July 06, 2012 @ 07:44:16 PM

#30 yeah.

There are random difficulty spikes during the 'Suicide Mission' difficulty that have put me off trying FUBAR though. Think I might just leave this @ 950 gamerscore and move on (I'm not quite there yet, but tomorrow should clean it up). If FUBAR had been available from the start I'd probably have 1000d the game, but meh.

I'm not much of a completionist ^_^

Comment #32 by Jake317
Tuesday, July 10, 2012 @ 08:37:48 AM

FUBAR definitely holds its fair share of challenges. Holding positions, Juggernauts and Knife guys are by far the real challenge, but for the majority you can have Adams and Lugo pick off guys while you're safe in cover, just watch out for grenades and if you have a clear shot, take it!

yeah i went on suicide after beating it the first time and i noticed how hard some of the spots were.

Comment #34 by Tsukimi
Monday, July 16, 2012 @ 10:25:55 AM

On suicide mission, the only part I felt hard was just the chapter 10 part 2.
But on FABUR, that's insane.
Yeah maybe a coop can help a little for this, but that will ruined the game's story.

Wednesday, July 18, 2012 @ 06:49:24 AM

Campaign is solid and has a decent storyline...

But fuck me it's hard... Don't know if it's just because I'm an FPS player coming to third person but this is one of the hardest campaigns I've played - even on Combat Ops I died constantly

Comment #36 by DavidinCT
Thursday, July 26, 2012 @ 04:02:47 PM

#35, Thanks for that. I just picked up the game (on the list but, not a chance), I wont start on FUBAR mode, like I was thinking off...

Story sounds good, so it might be something I play through 2 times at least, so I'll start at Combat Ops and when I do it again, go in at FUBAR mode... Like I do with most games..

Comment #37 by Mrryan12
Saturday, July 28, 2012 @ 05:13:06 PM

@36 You unlock FUBAR by beating the game on Suicide Mission, AKA 2nd hardest difficulty, but you do start with that one.

Holy CRAP!!!!!!! FUBAR is the fcuking hardest lol I'm all the way at Cp. 14 the 2nd checkpoint ( the 1st cp there is no fighting ) & this was the hardest by far to clear - took me over 3 hours just to clear that c.p. where most of the other hard ones only took 30 - 45 min - chapter 14 THE HARDEST BY FAR - but fcuking love it lol have fun getting this one

Holy shit!! I cant get past the part in the mall where you are on the turret trying to get Lugo and Adams up to the top!!!!! Chap. 11!!!
I can get to the part where you shoot open the door. then they come from behind and kill them, and if i try to cover the back the ppl in the front kill them!!!!
AHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!! I need help!

Soooooo finally just beat it man this game was amazing it's meant to be played at least twice with different endings and different choices throughout the game yeahhhh what a motho game lol

Comment #43 by OZPROdotCOM
Wednesday, August 01, 2012 @ 09:50:39 AM

WOW this one was really hard. There is a handy walkthrough on you tube ( For the really tricky bits it does help at least to see what happens through the levels first so you don't constantly get just a bit further than before only to be overcome by a big wave or a sneaky bastard that kills you from nowhere, or a heavy armour juggernaut guy that you haven't saved any 'nades for... At the end of the day the key is to use cover all the time and be patient and very persistent. Good luck!

Multiplayer achievements just sort of scream "PLAY MY MULTIPLAYER" IMHO. Unless the game has a strong, popular multiplayer, achievements are not needed. Lost Planet... urgh.

Sunday, August 05, 2012 @ 01:07:20 AM

This is bullshit! I've spent far too much time trying to beat this game on FUBAR difficulty...This is the sorriest exuse for a game as I have ever seen...The enemies take SEVERAL headshots to take down. This makes zero fucking sense to me...the enemies are shoot a man in the head once, he dies no matter what. Shoot 100 guys in the head they die every fucking time. PERIOD. Except in Spec Ops, where they grow super human douche bags programmed to ruin my fucking day.

Comment #46 by Xleft4theDEADxX
Sunday, August 05, 2012 @ 08:37:32 PM

#45: That's nonsense. When I played it the enemies even died due to a headshot from the M9.

That's a real pain-in-the-ass-cheevo. I nearly got crazy at that one. Two important hints: ALWAYS stay in cover. If you peek over the cover for too long you'll die. The second one: mark enemies for Lugo and Adams. Mostly they'll act really good for an AI. If you beat the first ten chapters you will easily make it through the last four ones.

Good luck.

Comment #48 by Moozipan Cheese

This would be manageable if the friendly AI was better, there weren't so many grenades, the checkpoints were placed after cutscenes, and (in particular) if the loading screens after death weren't so damn fucking long.

I only managed to get to Chapter 3 before giving up. Got all of the other Achievements though. Good luck to all who try.

Comment #49 by damnbloodymess
Sunday, September 09, 2012 @ 08:52:15 PM

@48 You should go back to it. You are right its not a perfect game and its flaws are magnified in FUBAR. The game DESPERATELY needs a hold command and oddly enough a take cover command. Lugo and Adams especially engage enemies in the open far too often regardless of whether or not I gave an attack order. But it is the hardest difficulty of a 4 tier difficulty game so it should be harder then whats usual for these games. It was quite rewarding win I did beat it as was the epilogue.

You guys say you hate MP achievements, well I think the worst are online achievements. Ones where you have to have a subscription to Live or PSN. And besides the fact that not everybody can afford a subscription or Internet, they're almost always something insane, like Soul Calibur's play 100 online matches or Moral Kombat's achievements where you have to win 50 matches online against someone who's way out of your league. That, my friends, sucks.

Just finished the game on FUBAR difficulty (my first 1000 G). was really challenging comparing to Suicide mission difficulty. Chapter 6 first battle and Chapter 13 second battle (where we defending an injured teammate) were absolute nightmares. It took maybe 30 tries for both fights for me, especialy that fight in Chapter 13 (the last wave with a heavy trooper and 2 elites was a hell).
But after all it's doable, all you need is a patience and to progress in your aiming and timing shots when leaving a cover.
A couple of simple advices: 1. If you're feeling completely stuck, enable auto-aim in settings; 2. Always take cover which have enough length to avoid grenades by simple moving left or right (if your cover is tight, you'll be wiped out by a grenade or killed by a gunfire wh

#7, go die in a hole, if achievements were all that bad you shouldnt have gotten a 360,whats even more pointless is bitching about it on an achievement hunting website, on a page about an ACHIEVEMENT!

Just beat this game on Combat Ops difficulty. Have every achievement except Suicide Mission and FUBAR. Don't think I'll replay it seeing as how even on Combat Ops there were spikes in the game that nearly drove me insane. Great story and would love to replay but don't think I have the patience to actually complete a tougher play through. And #1, I agree.

Fuck this achievement... I beat the whole game on FUBAR took me 2 days worth of playing to do so, and somewhere along the line the game somehow reset all of my data starting the achievement trackers again, I had to do the screen adjust all over again and blocking FUBAR off so I would have to beat Suicide Mission again, but it kept me playing on FUBAR. Said I didn't complete Chapter 1 on FUBAR. Fuck you game you cheating piece of shit...

Yeah, I was pulling my hair during the Yacht part in chapter 13 and the whole chapter 14 on my "Suicide Mission" playthrough, so I will take care of my nerves and won't even try completing the game on FUBAR... I'll stay with my 950G.
