Achievements and Gamerscore are a big part of Xbox culture. Not only do we like to unlock the most brutally difficult achievements to showcase our skills to our friends and followers, but sometimes we just like to send our Gamerscore skyrocketing by any means necessary. The best way to do that is to make time for games that offer super easy achievements – games that don’t make it too challenging to reach 100% completion. That’s where Achievement Alert comes in. From here on out, we promise to inform you of any game that offers a big ol’ bump to your Gamerscore for minimal effort on your part. For the sake of bragging rights and Xbox Rewards benefits, Pure Xbox is here to help out.
The topic of this debut installment of Achievement Alert is Forza Horizon 2 Presents Fast & Furious. If you weren’t already aware, this is a standalone downloadable game that’s currently free for Gold subscribers. Well, at least until April 10th it is. Then it will fetch an asking price of $9.99 – which is still reasonable for the amount of content it offers.
When it comes to achievements, the entire list of 26 can be completed in just a few hours for a full 1000 points. The best part is that a majority of the achievements unlock just by winning races that are a natural part of progression. There are a few that are based on skills and scoring, but they shouldn’t take too long to nab if you know what you’re doing. Worst case scenario is you’ll end up with roughly 800 points at the end of your three-hour session. It's hard to complain about that, right?
