Welcome to the Bionic Commando Road Map and Achievement Guide. This game can be completed in one playthrough but I recommend you split it into two. Playing on Normal first will make gathering all the collectibles and completing all of the challenges much easier and less frustrating.
For the most part this game is easy and straight forward. However whenever you die you will need to re-complete any challenges or recollect any collectibles you picked up since the last checkpoint. This means its very easy to miss "The Collector" and "Bionically Challenged" achievements.
The game is also structured in such a way that after you complete a level you will never go back, this means that any collectibles missed in the area are missed permanently. There is a replay option but it does NOT allow you to pickup collectibles or complete challenges to work towards "Bionically Challenged". So if you miss ANY collectible you will not be able to go back and you will not be able to unlock "The Collector" achievement.
Step #1 - Normal Playthrough:
You will be unlocking all but two achievements on this playthrough, make sure to follow the Collectible Guide (LINK) to find all 150 collectibles and unlock "The Collector" achievement.
You may also want to refer to the Challenge Guide (LINK) all of the challenges in the game are listed here. Many of the challenges are simply and many others are included in the Achievement Guide. However there are some difficult challenges that are not, details of which can be found in the Challenge Guide.
Step #2 - Commando Playthrough:
You should now have all of the games achievements except "I Got Hard" and "I Went Commando" which you will be unlocking on this playthrough. A list of tips for playing on this difficulty can be found here (LINK).
Note: If you missed any of the collectibles or challenges on your normal playthrough, or you decide to only have one playthrough on this difficulty then you can unlock all the achievements during this playthrough.
Overall this is simply game to get score out of. Unfortunately due to the save system, if you have missed even one challenge or Collectible will have missed "The Collector" and/or "Bionically Challenged" achievements. Your only option at this point is to start another playthrough.
