I am fed up of seeing threads popping up on the Xbox 360 board about games with 'easy' achievements or games to easily 'boost' your gamerscore. I decided to take it upon myself and create a simple guide to help out those new and clueless users who are interested in boosting their gamerscore.
Now before I get started, I would like you all to please read the following:
1. Your gamerscore is just a number and means nothing other than bragging rights. You own nothing on the internet so remember this; you can have an extremely high gamerscore, then some jackass hacks and steals your Xbox live account. Xbox live support only gives you false hope, doesn't do anything and you loose everything (true story, it happened to me)
2. I do plan to write up more of these in the future, featuring 10 game at a time.
3. Recommendations are fine, however lists will be based on my experiences and mine alone. I will not include a game unless I have a certain amount of experience with it, so obviously if I have not played and completed the game, it will not be on the list. Simple.
4. This entry may contain some minor spoilers
Avatar: The Last Airbender -- The Burning Earth
This game is the mother of easy achievements. It contains only 5 achievements and all of them are based on combo attacks. If done correctly, you can get full 1000GS in about 3 mins from the title screen (this includes loading time and cut-scenes). As soon as the game starts, simply run to the extreme left and blast the enemies with 'B' button. Try to blast them when they are lined up behind each other for additional hits and don't let them get too close to you. When you kill the first wave, a cut scene will play and another wave will attack. Repeat the above attacking pattern and you'll get to 50 hits in no time (which is the final combo hit achievement)
This game contains 5 achievements. They are easy to get and you can get all achievements in a single game once you know what you are doing. You can get full 1000GS in no more than an hour. It may take inexperienced gamers a little longer, but don't expect to spend a long time to get all these achievements. I'm not going to explain how to get these, figure it out on your own or do your personal research. I will give you a hint, play around with the options and the game sliders to increase your team's potential.
This game has an easy 1000GS, however to get them all you may need the assistance of guide. Most of the achievements are based or storyline or involves you taking certain pictures. The pictures are specific and can easily be missed. Even if you play this game through the first time and use a guide to assist you with the achievements second time round, expect to spend around 10 hours with this game.
This game contains a quick and easy 1000GS. The game itself is extremely easy. Just by completing the storyline, you'll get a whopping 920GS. Just meet the requirements for the remaining 2 achievements and 1000GS is easily yours. This game should take you no more than 5 hours.
Fight Night Round 3
This game contains an easy 1000GS and you can be able to get it in about 5 hours if you tweek the options a bit. Basically all the achievements are earned by winning the sponsored events. Once you've created your player, purchase the illegal moves, Low blow and Elbow to the face. Go to the options lower the difficulty and turn illegal moves off. When fighting, spam your opponent with illegal blows and he should go down easily without much of a fight, even if their stats greatly surpass yours.
Bioshock contains some easy echievements and is one of the best games you'll be playing for achievements. By default it contains a total of 1100GS. Firstly you need to refer to an achievement list to get an idea of what needs to be done and do it. A certain ending will unlock 100GS and harvesting/saving every little sister will net you 40GS. Other achievements can be unlocked simply by fully researching all the enemies in the game, hacking things, upgrading weapons and plasmid/tonic tracks, creating ammo etc. You do have the ability to save almost anywhere in the game so replaying it on the hardest difficulty for that achievements may not be as difficult as other games. In all, if you get the best ending in the game, and follow the achievements from your Xbox360 or a list, you should get around 800GS in your first playthrough which should take you about 10 hours (maybe more depending on how much you explore).
Peter Jackson's King Kong: The Official Game of the Movie
Just play the game from start to finish. At the end of certain chapters, you'll unlock achievements. All the achievements are based on the storyline and cannot be missed. Easy 1000GS for around 5 hours.
CSI: Crime Scene Investigation: Hard Evidence
This game is an easy 1000GS. It has 5 achievements, worth 200GS a piece. The game itself has 5 episodes and the end of each episode, you'll unlock a 200GS achievement. In all it shouldn't take you more than 5 hours to complete this game and rack up all the achievements. The first episode will take you about an hour to complete, maybe more, as you get familiarize yourself with the gameplay elements. Once you do so, the other episodes will become extremely easy and completing them will be a breeze. However, it isn't recommended you skip the cut-scenes, because some of them will contain vital information and you may find yourself stuck in the game.
Jumper: Griffin's Story
Jumper contains some easy achievements, however getting full 1000 will take some work and a lot of patience because this game is horrible. The game contains 20 achievements worth 50GS a piece. You can probably get at least 600GS easily during the course of game which will take you around 2 hours to complete. The other achievements will be fustrating and difficult to get such as the achievement for not dying during the game, which is almost impossible, because the second to last and last boss are brutally difficult. Still 2 hours with a crappy game for around 600GS isn't bad.
For all those of you obsessed with getting 1000GS for games you've played, this game is for you. This game contains a very easy 1000GS, however thy are a bit time consuming to get. This is an RPG, so on average, you'll spend about 40 hours with this one. All achievements are storyline based and unlock when bosses are defeated. Easy 1000GS, but it takes some time. Please take note: Before you enter the final area in the game, make multiple save files. You are given a choice before you battle Touya at the Ice Palace, the choice you make will affect the ending and only the best ending will give you a 150GS achievement
Thank you for reading. I hope this helps some of you people. More to come in the future.
Edit 1: I updated Enchanted Arms. Thanks to Pfilosophy for jogging my memory. I forgot an achievement can be missed if a wrong choice is made.
