Xbox 360 Achievements Guide

By: Michael Porteous

Perhaps one of the most revolutionary aspects of Microsoft's Xbox Live system is the rewards system where you can gain actual rewards for completing challenges and gaining achievement points. This is rewarding in terms of game play and of course the tangible rewards Xbox live gives you to purchase content as you go. However the disparity between casual and hardcore gamers will still exist as the casual gamers without as much time as the hardcore players often feel quite let down as they cannot possibly gain as many points as some other people regardless of skill. To counter this you need an Xbox 360 achievements guide to help you find the best way to increase your score without having to increase your time spent playing saving you time and giving you the enjoyment of playing the games to your own timetable!

While every game has different methods of gaining achievement points and some are easier than others the real trick is to find the easiest methods and even slightly unintended ways to gain points the developers did not really imagine! Forget aiming for the impossible and do the easy and achievable first, most games have a set of points that are easy to get but then have others that involve an enormous amount of time to do! If you want more points forget trying to do the time based ones if you have other easier ones you can grab first. This is the concept of 'low hanging fruit', easy to pick without much effort and has good rewards, get all the low hanging fruit first then find the next easiest part.

Another tip is that some games are much easier than others! Sports games seem especially easy to get points but long games like Oblivion while a great game is not the best for racking up points as the time taken to finish the game is massive compared to other titles. To get you started here are some of the best games for easy achievement points:

King King - This is ranked as one of the easiest places to farm for points as it takes about 6 hours to complete the game and get all the points.
Madden NFL 06 - This is another great game for easy points. By using the simulated season feature you can shortcut your way to easy points rather than slogging through the hard way.
NBA 2K6 - By selecting players that already are close to gaining achievements from assists and rebounds you can again short cut to some easy points.
Fight Night Round 3 - Another game that is quite quick, by winning all of the sponsored fights you get all the achievement points quickly and easily!

There are many more games with easy challenges and many other games that have a mix of easy to do and hard to do parts that you can cherry pick the ones you want to achieve. Using a bit of common sense and planning with your games you can rack up a bundle of points with these achievement points tips. I hope you found this Xbox 360 achievements guide helpful and good luck!
