On the whole it is still an easy game even for the most amateur of gamers, and shouldn’t take any longer than 15 hours. To complete the game you will need to play through it twice, once on normal mode and once on fantastic mode. No achievements can be missed as you can replay levels, but once you start a new campaign all of your previous campaign progress will be lost. Save points, upgrades etc.

Fantastic 4: ROTSS supports 4-player co-op which is a nice feature but it honestly isn’t vital to you completing it, but bring in a friend and it can make the game-play less monotonous.


  • Play as The Thing. I cannot stress this enough, he is by far the strongest character and you can complete the game easily by just spamming his+ move. You should upgrade this ability first.
  • Playing the last level WILL give you the achievement for completing the whole campaign, whether you complete the last level on normal or fantastic difficulty. However, once you start a new campaign all previous data is deleted.

Step 1 – Normal Difficulty
This step is going to be where you achieve most of the gamerscore and is also the easiest part. On this run through you’ll want to aim to get the "Fantastic Four" and "Doom Tracker" achievement. These achievements are collectible based and you have to find two different types of collectible to get them both. Once you have unlocked both of these you should get the Treasure Hunter achievement too. For the locations of all the collectibles take a look at the achievement guide, HERE. As you progress through the story-mode you’ll also receive achievements for completing each level (NOT Act) and also when you defeat each boss.

Step 2 – Grinding for Gold Coins and "Assist" achievement.
You may or may not be aware that there are achievements for fully leveling up each character, these being: Mr. Fantastic, Invisible Woman, Human Torch and The Thing. To max out all of their stats you’re looking at around 110,000 coins. The best place to grind gold coins is just keep replaying the chapter “It’s clobberin’ time”, this is the most profitable as it has the higher coin per minute ratio. However, there is an easier way, please see this thread for a trick which can save you a lot of time.

The "Assist" achievement is very simple but can be easily overlooked. To net this achievement just stand next to another member of the Fantastic 4 and hold and press either , , or to do a super combination move and the achievement should unlock.

Step 3 – Fantastic Difficulty
*Important* - Only start Fantastic difficulty when you have achieved every other achievement in the game. Starting Fantastic difficulty will erase all previous campaign progress!

Fantastic difficulty really is a piece of cake, as previously said stated upgrade Ben's shockwave attack and you’ll breeze through. This step doesn’t really need an explanation as it is pretty straightforward, once you have defeated Dr. Doom at the end of the game the achievement should unlock.

At this point you should have the full 1000 and should be smiling boldly. However, if you are still missing any achievements you can always use the replay level feature and pick up the last collectible or grind for coins to max out the stats on any of the characters.

There are 19 achievements with a total of 1000 points

  • Upgrade all of Mr. Fantastic's Powers


    See "Thing".

  • Upgrade all of the Invisible Woman's Powers


    See "Thing".

  • Upgrade all of the Human Torch's Powers


    See "Thing".

  • Thing



    Upgrade all of The Thing's Powers


    During the game you will earn coins by smashing objects. At the end of each act you are given the option to upgrade your characters (though you can do this at any time by pressing the back button). Once you’ve got all the powers upgraded for any of the characters, you’ll get their achievement. You can only upgrade a certain amount depending on where you are in the story. This will probably take 2-3 playthroughs, and must be done on the same difficulty, so do not start a new game until you are done with this, just keep replaying levels.

    I would suggest doing Military Base, Act 1. This seems to net the most money each time.

  • Hero



    Complete the game in normal difficulty mode.


    Simply progress through the game on Normal.

  • Complete the game in Fantastic mode.

    Simply progress through the game on Fantastic. Like most other games, doing it on Fantastic does not give you the achievement for Normal.

    *Important* - This should be the last thing you get, because as soon as you start a new game, you lose any progress you made previously. So if you don’t want a ton of extra work for yourself, get all the achievements on Normal and then once you only have this left, start a new game and just beat it again.

  • Doomed



    Defeat Dr. Doom


    While he is flying around, hit the switch on the giant machine to shoot him down. Then just pound the crap out of him with Ben's + attack. He'll run away and go back to flying, just repeat the whole process. Extremely easy for a final boss...

  • Defeat Super Skrull

    To defeat the Super Skrull, you have to use the Thing to pick guys up and throw them into the glowing ball in the middle. After about 10-12 guys the shield will drop. Switch to the Human Torch and use the + fireball attack until it’s depleted, then switch back to Thing and use the + ground pound attack. The shields will go back up after you hurt him some. Rinse and repeat until he’s dead.

    Or, just shoot the glowing ball with fireballs and use the same method to attack the Super Skrull. Thanks, flea... don't know why I didn't think of that.

  • Defeat Terrax

    After doing the first two security rooms, you should have a feel for how to make the beams of light hit their target, so hit the bell and figure out that pattern until he is stunned, then unload on him with Ben's + attack until he stops glowing when hit, then run away because he is going to do a similar shock wave to hurt you. Any time Ben dies, go to someone else and run into a side room until he is back up, everyone else is basically useless during this fight.

  • Complete Skrull Lair Level


    See “Skrull’s Demise” for tips on the boss battle.

  • Complete Red Ghost Level



  • Complete New York Level


  • Complete Terrax Level



    See "Elemental Master" for tips on the boss battle.

  • Complete Military Base Level



  • Complete Shanghai Level


    Self-explanatory. See "Doomed" for tips on the boss battle.

    2. In the room where you first use Mr. Fantastic’s evade ability through the lasers, just inside the door on the left.
    3. Behind a pillar during the Super Skrull fight. Just run around the room until you find it.

    New York City, Act 1

    1. In the corner of the room with the red carpet.
    2. After you move the crane to get to the second building, go around back.

    2. After disabling the first set of lasers in the giant generator room, go through the tunnel and they are underneath some indestructible boxes in the next room.
    3. After killing four monkeys to disable another set of lasers, go straight in that room before you go to where the lasers are.

    Terrax, Act 1

    1. In the very first room, on the right side after some rocks.
    2. Behind a lone lion statue in a blue-lit dead-end.
    3. Just inside the large room with the yellow rocks hanging from the ceiling, right side.

    3. Behind the big statue on the third level of the mountain, after the two security levels.

    Military Base, Act 1

    1. This is right in the beginning behind green lasers, but you can't get it right away. Progress through the level until you get to the computer that says "Open Security Bays" and then backtrack to the start. On the opposite side of the room from the lasers, there is a white room now open with a power box high up. Hit that and go collect the coin.
    2. When you get to the part where Ben says "Hey Big Brain, there's a computer" you're going to use the computer and backtrack out into the room with the circle desk in the middle. Go all the way across the room and inside this newly opened door is a breakable wall. It's behind there.
    3. After Reed calls for a ride, go back the way you came. Go into the first room on the left, then turn around. On the wall near the ceiling is a power box, use Reed's RT+X move to break it. Continue down the way and the power grid blocking this coin will be gone.

    Military Base, Act 2

    1. During a somewhat large robot fight, break the wall on the left side. Edit: I meant a large group of robots, not a single large robot. Sorry about the confusion there.
    2. In the back left corner during the second robot fight in the Skrull warship room, there is a small cubby with some boxes, break them to find it.
    3. On the third level where you call the elevator, it is behind a green laser grid. The power box is in the left room, up high.
    4. When you get to the missile silo, find a power box on one of the supports on the ground level and smash it. It appears to do nothing. Find a similar power box on every level as you go up the silo, but make sure it doesn't open a door or drop a laser field, because that's not the one you're looking for. If you get them all, a door on the top level will be open with a coin inside.


    1. On the right side, use Johnny to fly up to a ledge and behind the building.
    2. Further down the street, this time on the left side. Same method.
