    Shouldn't there have been 13 achievements? Or would that have been bag luck.

    What is very bad luck is the game has a platinum wannabe achievement of the type that is notoriously glitched on the X1.

    Aaaaand...skip. Can't stand these kind of achievements.
    This just makes no sense. Who wants a tag only filled with easy games? You need a balance. Never understood people skipping games because of achievements.
    Agreed. Difficulty achievements may occasionally steer me away from a completion, but never from playing a game entirely.

    The achievement for playing on max difficulty looks like the only one that's halfway interesting--get five documents, get ten documents, get 15 documents, etc. What are we doing here? Filling out a bunch of boring paperwork? And the platinum wannabe is a deal breaker.

    Also wondering if this achievement will unlock or not:

    I see they didn't remake Duchovny's terrible voice acting.

    Maximum difficulty sounds fun.

    Also, taking bets on the "get all achievements" achievement being broken. Why does Xbox get these stupid ass achievements? We don't have the equivalent of a bootleg "platinum". We get 100% and that's all that matters.
    Because devs are lazy and just port over the tropy lists.

    Never even heard of this game. Seems like a lot of people like it though.

    That kind of achievement always makes me nervous.

    You're right, but it should be the other way around. Xbox created achievements. They were the progenitor. Just because Sony sold the most consoles doesn't mean we should have to play by their rules. Bah.

    I've seen an unopened ps2 version for $2. Wonder what that resell value is....

    That’s exactly right. Moreover, a company who is too lazy to do more than just port over a trophy list is also too lazy to properly code the platinum wannabe achievement on the X1—hence the high propensity for platinum wannabes to be glitched.

    Liked the original but THAT price for such a niche game in the mass of x-mas releases seems crazy.

    Exactly! Difficult achievements are awesome. Cumulative or collectible achievements are not. Unless they give you a cutscene, story element, or an in game reward other than the achievement.

    I agree, but Sony has such a huge lead over MS when it comes to console sales, so I guess it's simpler to go with the leader?

    It looks like the difficulty achievements don't stack. The one person that has early access and played it does have the following achievement unlocked:
    XIIIAuthentic XIII AgentThe Authentic XIII Agent achievement in XIII worth 159 pointsComplete the campaign on maximum difficulty.


    But he has the following achievements locked:
    XIIIThat was easy!The That was easy! achievement in XIII worth 51 pointsComplete the campaign on easy difficulty

    XIIIMade it!The Made it! achievement in XIII worth 67 pointsComplete the campaign on medium difficulty

    Just about the first game I played back in the original Xbox, so I'm definitely getting this. Just hope the rose-tinted glasses aren't covering for a disappointing reunion!
    Boring sounding achievement list though.

    So this one is glitched !

    XIIIFinish HimWhiterValkyrieThe Finish Him achievement in XIII worth 86 pointsDeplete the armor of a fully armored enemy, then kill him with a melee attack


    The guy has all achievements unlocked (even the platinum) but not this one... Strange !

    That means the game credited the player with the achievement but failed to trigger unlocking it in XBox Live.

    ...or the achievement itself is badly coded but the platinum recheck every condition instead of every achievement.
