Ice Age 3 is a fun,and very easy, 1000 points and can easily be completed fully in 4 to 5 hours. Thanks to the game design, you can replay any level or challenge as many times as you like so if you miss a crystal, it is a simple case of replaying the level. As soon as the crystal is collected,the game saves it so you need never collect it again (you can't anyway as they vanish for good on that save once collected). Check my crystal locations walkthrough, HERE.
With that in mind, the road map is very short and linear. Start off by simply selecting "Extras" from the main menu and then "Credits. You don't have to watch them all through as the chiev pops up straight away.
After that, simply play through each level of the game, making note of which levels have a challenge associated with them. The first one you unlock is "Diego's Challenge". There aren't any actual challenges by this name, however, it is the Pursuit challenge it wants. It's a good idea to do the challenges straight after finishing the level in story mode as your mind will be fresh on the level layout and what needs to be done. Bear in mind, 99% of the challenges are very straightforward and will not require more than a couple of attempts by most to get them. A few however can be tricky. Check my guide for some tips and tricks to help you along. You can find the guide HERE.
Whilst playing the story, make sure to collect all the berries and fruit so you can purchase the coloured crystals from the store. These are counted for the crystals achievements. If you break open everything, kill all enemies and pick up all loose fruit, you will easily have enough to buy them as they appear. If not, simply replay the level Noisy Nightlife as this easy level will net you over 1000 berries every time.
Once the main story is completed and all crystals are collected, clear up any challenges you may have missed and you will be sitting at 1000 points.
