    though i will still play an uncompletable game, i would really also like to see them fix the old ones first.

    i never understood why some games have achievements and some do not, or some come to WP and some do not. for example we have Angry Birds Epic but no achievements (even though it shows up as Live Enabled). also, dragon quest and final fantasy titles, we have ff1 and ff3 and that's it? ios and android have others. anyway i know that's not really related to this article.

    Hopefully they look at Total Conquest too. =/

    You say to hold off on buying Modern Combat 5 because it's going F2P, but I'm wondering if it's actually better to buy it while you can and avoid the exorbitant F2P prices all F2P games seem to suffer from. I mean, what will happen to those who already own it, after it turns into F2P? Like, they'll have the equivalent of the most "super unlocked" version, as if they paid massive amounts of F2P in-game currency or something?

    And every other similar comment posted on here and every other Gameloft forum.

    Does Asphalt 8 still require $150 in actual money to complete?

    How very dare people complain about achievement completion on an achievement focused website.They should be ashamed of themselves for trying to finish what they have started.

    /End Sarcasm.

    I have little desire to play broken mobile games for hours on end maybe all the trailblazers on here can test them first smile

I know a few people on here who have 100% completions.

    Gameloft's free live enabled WP titles are all a super huge grind to 100% unless you wana spend a shit load of cash. Asphalt 8 I'm looking at you! 4 cars that I can only buy with tokens and the online events get me maybe 30 tokens a week and each car is 1,000+! Will only have ANY interest in these if they are paid for titles if they are "FREE" I'm not interested.

    Yes it does. You can earn tokens from the online events for the 4 cars you can only buy with tokens but its painfully slow unless you fully upgrade the best car available in each class and are good at the online event. Do-able without spending money but it'll take 100 hours or so.

    250 achievements on old games for 1% increase.... soon be 90% >_<

    They should update their bugged games with glitched achievements like Brain Challenge (WP) or Lets Golf 2 (WP).

Just out of curiosity, as I'm seeing these comments quite frequently, may I ask someone to list "must play" games with unobtainables? I'm especially interested in non-discontinued achievements (i.e. that have been unobtainables ever since the release of the game) ...

    In my opinion, having unobtainables says a lot about the devs and therefore about the game ... especially when it comes to Gameloft!

    Wonder if they'll fix Total Conquest's achievements and make a better sync between the Win 8 and the WP versions. Kinda ridiculous of having broken games that you can't complete because of a few bugs -.-

Play the damn game and enjoy itIt's always interesting to see these posts from people who have been investigated and moved to non-stat tracking even when I agree with the sentiment. That said Gameloft has pulled some BS with their games, like what they did with Asphalt 8. Ugh.
    Looking to boost any MP achievements I don't have for any game I own.

Revolution (WP) has one unobtainable (since launch, never fixed, despite being published by Microsoft Studios), but I still think it's a superb puzzle game worth buying, if you're looking for a unique puzzle game.

    Any news on whether they will have modern combat 4 free again as well? I got it when it was free during bean dive 2014 I think but had to delete it for space and by the time I had enough space they had removed the free version from the marketplace!

    Stuck with an achievement unlocked but no way to complete the game without buying it. And it ain't one of the cheapest games!

    Craploft games can suck it. Issues already mentioned aside, the games aren't fun. They're boring/gimmicky games that feed of the childish do thing->make rewarding sound/animation->do again->wait longer each time or pay $$$->make rewarding sound/animation loop. It's so blatant it's rather pathetic.

    At their core all games are like that to an extent but at least some try to be proper games and not bordering on gambling. Although Microsoft is far worse just less broken like Microsoft Jackpot.
    Life, it's funny that way.
