Easy Achievements – Boost Your Gamerscore

I originally wrote this little “guide” for another website, but I thought it would be a good idea to share here also. Below is a list of xbox 360 games that have easy achievements.

Avatar: The Legend Of Aang – The Burning Earth

Easy Xbox 360 AchievementsThis is probably the easiest game to earn a full 1000 achievement points. I managed to do it within about 5 minutes (including time taken to put the game in the xbox 360 and load it up).

Peter Jackson’s King Kong: The Official Game of the Movie

The achievements in this game are fairly straightforward. You earn them simply by playing through the game. It’s hard to estimate the time taken as it was so long ago. I’d say it takes about 8 hours to get the full 1000. The game isn’t too hard and is quite enjoyable in certain parts.

TMNT: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

This game is a bit of a no-brainer. I earned the full 1000 achievements in under 4 hours. This game was also quite fun which made the task not as painful as some games can be when trying to max out your gamerscore.

Bionicle Heroes

Easy 1000 achievement points, although it may take some time to get the full 100%. The game can be quite fun for kids that like blowing stuff up and looking for hidden collectibles. I found it a bit boring though.

Open Season

As odd as it may sound I thoroughly enjoyed this game and was actually a little disappointed when I completed it. I wanted more! The game is fun and great for kids. The 1000 achievements are fairly easy although there are two levels that are a bit of a b*tch to get 100%.

Surf’s Up

Yet another kids film made into a kids game. This isn’t too bad though. The game is simple and enjoyable enough. To 100% it can be a bit of a challenge, but not too hard. You can easily get 950 achievement points if you are not patient enough to collect everything. To get the full 1000 will probably only take you a couple of days in total.

Viva Pinata

This game is a bit weird but quite addictive. If you have the patience it is fairly easy to get the full 1000 gamerscore. I used a guide to help me get some of the hidden achievements. I didn’t quite have the time to get all 1000, but I racked up about 920 points pretty easily.

Spider-Man: Friend or Foe

It is easy but enjoyable with a nice graphical style. You can get the full 1000 just by playing through the game, finding some collectibles, and upgrading your characters. Pretty straightforward, but might take you a few evenings to 100% each level.

Fight Night Round 3

This game is really easy to get 1000 achievements. A word of warning though, set the saving to manual so you can retry any fights you lose (i missed out on a chance to get 100 points because I lost an important fight and it auto-saved). Also turn on “illegal blows” to make the fights a lot easier to win.

Halo 3

Chances are you probably own this game already. Still, it belongs in here. It was really easy to get over 800 achievement points. I was a bit disappointed actually how easy it was to complete the game on legendary with a few friends online. To get the full 1000 relies a bit on chance and playing online continuously.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

I’m not a huge fan of Harry Potter. My girlfriend forced me to watch it! The game itself also isn’t too bad. It’s a fairly easy getting the full 1000, but I didn’t really have the patience to play through it again on a harder setting. Do it on easy to get 900, then try it on hard to get the last 100 if you have time. I will probably return to this game one day 100% it.


I’m not good at games, but I managed to get 780 achievement points just playing through this. Tip: save all the “little sisters” to get an extra 100 gamerscore when you complete the game. If you kill/sacrifice one you will be kicking yourself as you get nothing for being evil (gamerscore wise).

2006 FIFA World Cup

Rubbish game. You can get 500 achievement points in one afternoon’s play. The other 500 take some time to get. Personally, I don’t have the patience for it.


This game is great fun! The achievements are easy and fun to get. I haven’t got them all myself, but I plan to come back to this game later in the future. I got 650 points (before the expansion came out) without trying particularly hard.

Viva Pinata – Party Animals

A fairly average party game but incredibly easy to get achievement points. So far I’ve only played it twice and got almost 400 achievement points. Have a few friends over to help make the time pass by a little quicker.

Matt has been hooked on games since he received his first console (a SEGA Mega Drive) for his 7th birthday. He now spends most of his time on the Xbox One, Xbox 360 and Nintendo 3DS, but will use any excuse for a retro gaming night.
