Magna Carta 2 is a Japanese Role-Playing Game (JRPG) with a free-action battle system similar to Infinite Undiscovery. It has some unique battle features that help it stand out though. I suppose it is technically a KRPG since it was made by a Korean company, but as genres go, it is right in line with most JRPG on the market.
The only thing you'll need before starting your playthrough if you only want the original 1000 is the Quest Guide. I will include the locations of the three recipes that can be found only in chests inside that walkthrough to simplify things. However, if you want the full 1240, you'll also need to consult the Weapons guide.
If you plan on getting the full 1240, purchase the Magnacarta 2 Bonus Pack for 400 Microsoft Points before beginning your game. If you want, you can watch the Live Dramas right away from the main menu, but I'd suggest saving them until you are familiar with all the characters. Unless of course you don't care about that.
If you don't care about playing the game "pure," this content is also fabulous for powering through quickly. The extra weapons that you are given have ginormous damage output, killing most of the enemies and bosses in the first half of the game in just a few hits.
Play the game
Well, this is actually the only step to getting the entirety of gamerscore since there is no end-game component, secret dungeons, multiple playthroughs or anything like that. If you follow the Quest Guide and Weapons Guide diligently to complete all the quests, grab the few items that are found specifically in chests and collect every weapon, you will easily have all the achievements. One of the simpler JRPG lists for sure! Be sure to do Chain Breaks whenever possible though, and follow some of the tips for the skill mastery achievements if you're going to try for those in a single playthrough.
