We're back! Here's our round-up of the easiest completions in the week's Xbox Sales, as determined by their overall TA ratio. If you're in need of some quick gamerscore these titles might just help you out. Click the game names to see the achievement lists and get access to both individual guides and a comprehensive achievement walkthrough where one has been written.
Quickest Xbox Game Completions from the latest Sales**Albedo: Eyes from Outer Space is only on sale via the Merge Games Mega Bundle - click "View" next to Albedo above to see more details.
As you can see, the usual sprinkle of ACA NEOGEO games has turned up in the sales once again — if you can tolerate a quick retro experience and can follow a guide or two, you shouldn't have any problems finishing these ones off. There's some other TA regulars in the mix too, such as Albedo: Eyes from Outer Space – LifeExpectancy's site walkthrough will get you through it in a few hours, and the community certainly appreciate it having given nearly 300 likes to the guide so far. (Remember to tip your walkthrough writers with a thumbs up!)
But certainly in the case of Albedo, "easy" and "worth playing" don't always align. Luckily there's plenty of games in this list that range from "not too bad" to "actually really good" — at least according to our own community. There's the beloved Life is Strange and Life is Strange: Before the Storm, in which you only need to keep an eye out for a few collectibles while enjoying the emotional story. There's also the Capcom Beat 'em Up Bundle sitting just shy of 4 stars from the community — and a great way to sample one of the great genres of the 90s without too much difficulty. After all, none of the achievements require you to avoid using continues, and the game appears to have an unlimited supply.
Also recommended — by me personally and by a large chunk of the community — is Sherlock Holmes: Crimes and Punishments. You can easily get through all of the achievements with Ackter's walkthrough sitting at a whopping 1053 thumbs up, and in the meantime you can enjoy a wonderfully detailed if slightly dry rendition of life in and around 221B Baker Street. In a similar detective vein, Murdered: Soul Suspect is a bit of a cult favourite. It's cheesy and messy, but it's easy enough to both complete and enjoy as a popcorn noir. And Ackter is back again to help out via a walkthrough, once again with over 1000 likes from the community. Finally, while it's not universally beloved, the grim Inside-like puzzler Black: The Fall might appeal to some of you, and it won't punish you on the achievements front either; follow along with guns vs kittens' walkthrough if you get lost.
