    Basically to get this you have to go through every ending in the game. You don't necessarily have to finish each walkthrough though. As long as you get to Act 4 you can quit and start up the next one. Just make sure you finish the ending at least once!

    Some good tips for this one is:

    1. Look for good places to blow a path through. A good placed explosion can save you a good minute sometimes.

    2. Once you get the almighty virus every single one of these are easy. Simply send one virus and about 5 attackers. In other words hit Y once and A 5 times. Then rinse and repeat until you're out of energy. Then let it recharge and start again.

    Although on about half of the hacks you won't even need to send in the second wave after the recharge.

    And that's that. Simply follow those 2 rules and any System Override Hack is easy. Happy Hunting! :D

    z Mr Man zAll you have to do is send your little things into the green gate on the opposite side. Any of your items that hit it will hurt it. And if you do it enough it will go red and you'll win.

    Iceberg082006But then the description under the achievement is wrong? It says in any single player game, wouldn't that mean any playthrough? Because there is only 1 single player game but multiple playthroughs

    z Mr Man zThe achievement description may have changed from when I put this solution up. I can't remember what it used to say since I won this half a year ago. But when I got the achievement I had to do each playthough, and the ending at least once. If you've already done one playthrough completely and you got the achievement then let me know and I will update my solution.

    You'll have to play through each of the 4 different paths for this achievement, I've linked in some videos below which will breakdown which puzzles can be found on each path so you can keep track of what you've done and what you need to do!

    The System Override mini-games are very easy once you've got the hang of it, your first playthrough will be the hardest because you'll be unlocking equipment as you play but if you decide to playthrough again and go for this achievement you'll keep all the equipment you've unlocked (you unlock it by just progressing through the story).

    There's not a great deal I can advise you on this game type, however I strongly recommend that you pay attention to the tutorials before each "new" System Override because they'll explain the new "software" that will be available, how to use it and what it does, there's no real consequence if you can't beat a particular game first time so don't get too worked up if you're struggling, keep calm and keep trying making sure you're using the equipment you have to it's full potential.

    On subsequent playthroughs you'll find these games infinitely easier because you'll be able to spam out pieces of your equipment that you didn't have access to on the previous playthrough!
