XCOM: Enemy Unknown

XCOM: Enemy Unknown Achievements

A Continental Fellow

Win the game from each of the 5 starting locations.

Each time you start the game you are given the option of what continent you wish to establish your base on. Each location has its own bonuses that can affect certain aspects of the game, but overall there is no great difference with each location.

This will take 5 playthroughs to unlock as long as you choose a different starting location with each new game. How you play and progress through the game is entirely up to you but be aware that you need to win the game. Having more than 8 countries pull out of the council will result in a loss and void that particular playthrough for this achievement.

It would of worked better if, like the original, you could (And had to) build multiple bases.
Then the achievement could of been to have a base on each continent at the same time, would make a bit more sense.

Personally I find this game fun to play, so, I will most likely play it through a dozen times or more (Although not in one go, that would be silly).

If a game is fun then play it, if it's not then don't.

this should be piss easy if you play in easy mode. it's very easy in normal - so easy? walk it in a few hours.

i gotta admit i miss the multple bases of the original. i do luv micromanagement [even macro-micro management].

the good old days of building bases everywhere - in europe w nothing but research labs; asia a base full of engineers; afrika as a cash cow [cant rem how!];N.Amerika for troops; S,America for weird alien tech.

cant rem how it was done in original game but i luv it when aliens do a "BASE ATTACK! BASE ATTACK!" and, god help u if you didn't put at least 5 troops in each base to defend it.
thew beauty of the base attack in-game was it FORCED u to train as many rookies up to SGT lev as poss or you'd lose a base! of course, the base had defences but they'd get thru s

R0KETM4N, ig you have forgotten where you started previous games, but you have savegames remaining, then you can load these games and see the base location on hologlobe or see from where the craft is launching/returning for the missions/ufo hunting.

Question: Does Enamy Within games count for this achievement or does EW have a separate list of achievements? Is this different for PC/consoles?

SmaGreBazm, I'm almost certain that this does not link with Enemy Within since that game comes with a complete new achievement list! The Achievements are also not added to the list of Enemy Unknown! So I'd say get them in the original game! Takes a while, but as mentioned above, rush through it on easy if you want to save on time!
