So how about the 5 deaths achievement?

That is one tough cookie, I've been working on it for the past 7 hours since I got off work and finally took a break, I usually end up with the 6th death on the final puzzle =/

ya I played through the game a few times getting 6 deaths...wasn't too happy about it cause it was so close...but I know the parts that would always catch me were all the parts with the saw blades. If there's a saw blade around I'd probebly hit it...so I did just those particular parts a few times over and used certain areas (like the background) to help my timing. Like the area with the two boxes you need to stack before the blade gets ya..well there's a blade of grass that I use so when the blade gets to it I hit the next button...stuff like that. My suggestion though is play it in parts, take a break every couple minutes to break it up, cause you play it from beginning to end ya start to stress out here & there.
 
The part thats driving me nuts are the secret SECRET hidden eggs...some of these are rediculasly hard...to the point that you can only find them from someone telling you, cause there's no way I could see someone getting a few of these on their own...lol no way.

This is my second night playing the game after work, and I'm like 75% done with the game, and I've died approximately 5.4 billion times. 
 
You people are crazy, but I fully endorse you.

I was playing the game about a week before launch, and I took a look at the leaderboards. Let it be known that I practically shit my pants when I saw a guy had unlocked the "Complete in one sitting with less than 5 deaths" achievement BEFORE  unlocking the "Complete Limbo" achievement. 
 
Yeah, that's right. Somebody got this achievement on their first playthrough.

Alt account most likely.

 My guess was that it was a developer .

He'd have to be a genius with insane timing for that ending.

I just got it. Only died 3 times.
 
Funnily enough, 2 of those deaths were in a section I thought would give me no trouble at all.

@Seiken_Enhasa:  
Same, took me loads of tries and when I eventually got it the deaths I got were on parts that had given me no trouble at all previously.

Plan on S-Ranking this so I guess I might as well start trying my hand at it.

This seems downright impossible.  I'm going to give it a try though.

How do you even do this? There are so many parts in this game where I absolutely know what I have to do and yet still die 5-15 times until I get it right.

#14 Posted by FlamingHobo (4479 posts) -

I'll get this eventually but I'm busy with other games right now.

#15 Posted by iizcallum (606 posts) -

I was really trying for it at one point, could get about three quarters of the way through before dying 5 times. Then Dragon Quest IX came along and I haven't been on it since.. D:

I dont know if the 110% completion is worth the headache

I would like to S-Rank this game, but I'm not sure I will find time. Realistically I could take my 360 to work on night shift... Maybe I will get this achievement.

Had a couple of runs at it this morning, managed to get it down to 7, all on piss-easy jumps as it goes. Might have another go tomorrow.

Seems rather a ridiculous achievement, to be honest. Scary scary achievement. I'd be rather wary of anyone who has procured it.

I did it today on my 3rd complete run through of the game. I practiced the final couple of chapters a few times and did the beginning half or so a couple of times. I did it in four deaths and two of those were RETARDED.

So... Batman then? 
 
Sorry, but I need to necro this thread. I'm about to go for this achievement and I'm wondering if anyone else has gotten this achievement. I need all the tips I can get before attempting it.
