Welcome to my Ben 10 Ultimate Alien: Cosmic Destruction guide. The game is a linear action game in the same vein as the Ben 10 Alien Force: Vilgax Attacks game and is generally geared toward a younger audience with a few challenges on the boss fights. The majority of the achievements will be unlocked during the course of normal play and anything else can be completed with the level select feature. I'd like to recommend that you save every chance you get. The game had a tendency to freeze on me.
Play through the main game. Start by using Ben (human form) and get his 50 kills out of the way. Then, on each level you will want to focus on destroying every enemy and destructible object you can to collect kills and DNA points. There are 3 achievements for destroying objects, 3 for DNA points and 3 for killing enemies. You need to pay extra attention to make sure you specifically destroy every car throughout the entire game for “Immobilized” and all the security cameras in the Amazon level for “Camera Shy”. You will also want to collect all the Sumo Slammers from each level. I have a guide to the car, camera and slammer locations and it can be found here. On the Final Battle level you will want to save all the civilians for “Savior”. There are not that many but I have them listed in the collectible guide with the rest of the stuff. In addition to the collectibles, half way through level 2 you can use the Swampfire method outlined in "100 Hit Combo" to get to 1,000,000 DNA points relatively quickly. Check the "100 Hit Combo" section again when you reach level 6 for an easy opportunity to obtain the 100 hits and the achievement. Once you finish the game for the first time, be sure to watch the entire credit roll for an easy achievement. Doing all the above will net you all of the achievements in a single run.
Go through and complete any section that you may have missed and mop up any of the remaining challenges. I have listed tips for each challenge under their respective achievements in case you need additional help. If you did not use the Swampfire method on your first playthrough you will need to replay a couple of levels to get your million DNA and to fully max out all the aliens. The only other thing that you may have left to do is go for the 50 and 100 hit combos.
Overall the game is not too difficult with the exception of the 100-hit combo. The average gamer should be able to complete the majority of the game within a single day of dedicated play. This makes it a perfect candidate for a weekend rental.
If you really run into trouble or just want to blow through the game as fast as possible, I have a step by step walkthrough for the entire game here.
Hope you have fun with the game and if you hated it, well maybe the guide will help make it less painful. Thanks for reading.
