Major Nelson and Xbox have graced us with another Xbox One, Windows and Xbox 360 sale. Are you looking for some easy Gamerscore for cheap? Well, you're in the right place as we've compiled a list of games with easy completions for you to boost your Gamerscore with. This week we have 19 titles to choose from, all with low TA ratios and short estimated completion times. We've linked directly to each game's hub where you'll find individual achievement guides and full achievement Walkthroughs — if one's been written.
Quickest Xbox Game Completions from the latest Sales
First of all, let's get the ACA NEOGEO Win 10 games out of the way. Seven games on our list are NEOGEO titles all for Windows. ACA NEOGEO SAMURAI SHODOWN II, ACA NEOGEO THE KING OF FIGHTERS '95, ACA NEOGEO AERO FIGHTERS 3, ACA NEOGEO FOOTBALL FRENZY, ACA NEOGEO METAL SLUG, ACA NEOGEO ZED BLADE and ACA NEOGEO NINJA COMMANDO all have 12 achievements worth 1000 Gamerscore. They are all separate Windows 10 achievement lists so if you've already completed these on Xbox One you can stack them again for their Gamerscore. Each game is on sale for $3.99, and all have short completion times.
Transference is an adventure title with 14 achievements worth 1000 Gamerscore. All but three of the game's 14 achievements are unlocked just by playing through the story; the rest are all collectables. Estimated completion time is around an hour, especially if you follow our Walkthrough. It's been relatively well-received here on TA too with a rating of 3.12/5, so if you fancy stumping up the $7.50, you could be in for a short but enjoyable time with a sweet reward of 1000Gs awaiting you at the end.
Telltale games are notorious for their easy completions, and we have two in this week's list, BATMAN – The Telltale Series and Batman: The Enemy Within - The Telltale Series. Achievements in both of these games are straightforward and are unlocked just by completing the story and are worth 1000 Gamerscore each. The Telltale Batman Bundle is on sale for $11.99. The only issue here is the time sink. Telltale games are episodic and contain five episodes in each game. An episode takes roughly 1-2 hours to complete. The bonus is that both of these Batman titles are great games — the Gamerscore should be seen as a bonus.
UPDATE: The first Telltale Batman title is included with next month's Games with Gold so it's probably worth holding off on this one. Also, a new update for the game has broken the achievements making them unobtainable.
Life is Strange: Before the Storm is yet another episodic game. Before the Storm has three episodes with each one taking around 2-3 hours to complete. 34 achievements on this one worth 1000 Gamerscore and nearly all of the achievements are collectables. If you follow our highly-rated Walkthrough, you'll grab all of the achievements in no time at all. Life is Strange: Before the Storm is a great game with an intense and emotional narrative. If you don't want to get too bogged down in reading a walkthrough and just want to absorb the story and game world, there is a Collectable Mode that is accessible after each level. This allows you to skip all of the dialogue and pop those achievements. Before the Storm recently left Xbox Game Pass, luckily it's on offer for just $3.39 — $4.99 if you want the extra "Farewell" bonus episode.
Skipping on down the list we have Disney Classic Games: Aladdin and The Lion King. Now, if you played these games as a kid when they came out on the Genesis/MegaDrive back in the 90s, you'll be forgiven for thinking that these are not an easy completion. Luckily a generous rewind system and the old Level Select and infinite life cheats still work. You will have to play through each game about three times though as the difficulty achievements don't stack, overall, it should take about 3 hours to grab all 15 achievements. Disney Classic Games: Aladdin and The Lion King is on sale for $20, so it's still a pretty expensive game. Unfortunately, our site review didn't score it too highly either.
That's it for this weeks list. Let us know if you know of any other games in the sales that are also easy completions or why the games in our list might be a little more tricky than the TA ratios make out. You can view the full list of the games discounted in the latest Xbox sale here.
