Child of Eden is a rhythmic rail shooter from mastermind Tetsuya Mizuguchi and the sequel to Rez. On your way through five huge trippy levels you try to save Lumi. You can use the Kinect to play this game and it's highly recommended on your first playthrough for an amazing experience. After that you should plug in your controller since it's easier to master the game. The game is broken up into five stages and one challange level. You have to play through the game on both normal and hard while reaching the ultimate goal of getting Gold Stars on every stage.
1st Playthough - Normal:
Just play through the game on normal without worrying about any achievements. You will get the ones for achieving perfect Octa-Locks along the way.
2nd Playthrough - Hard and Hope Archive:
After you finished all five archives on normal you will unlock hard mode and the challenge stage, which is called Hope. Go through the game on hard and try to beat hope afterward since it's by far the most difficult stage in the game.
Getting 100% and 5 Stars on every stage:
Now the fun part begins. You will try and get 100% on every archive (both normal and hard). You also need to reach 800.000 Points on every level to get the 5 Star Rank. You get one 15 achievement for every level you get 800.000 on. This has to be done on both Normal and Hard. After you've done this, you should also have purified every enemy in the game, unlocked everything in the Extras menu, and may have gotten every item in Lumi's Garden. Depending on the items, you should now have 900 or 950 . There is only one thing left to do.
Getting Gold Stars on every stage:
This is the last step and the one that will probably cost you your sanity. To get a Gold Star Rank on an archive, you have to get over 800.000 while still defeating every enemy for the 100% purification. This will be a hard test and not many will have the skills to do it.
You should now have 1000 in Child of Eden and can be very proud of your achievement. If you don't have all the items in Lumi's garden by now, just replay the levels you need and can finish the game for good.
