We all covet the S-rank, the ability of a gamer to completely beat a game. Not just the story but everything the developers deemed important.
So as we all work hard to attain more S-ranks there will inevitably be a game or two that acts like a constant mocking monkey that never leaves our back.
The game: Sid Meier's Civilization Revolution for the Xbox 360
I absolutely love the Civilization series and when I heard that it was coming to consoles I was all in.
A lot of these achievements are super easy, and despite some 3 point achievements, everything balances out after a few playthroughs.
The trouble comes in the form of a handful achievements asking to beat the game on the highest difficulty. Now Civilization, to me, is about a relaxing strategy game where I will dominate and destroy all others. And I do play on higher difficulties so that when I do win my ego is boosted.
But this game offers 4 separate achievements for beating the game on the highest difficulty.
Even after following online guides I am stuck on 3 remaining achievements and about 100 gamerscore trapped in limbo.
Beating the game on 2 of the harder difficulties by domination (military victory) and 1 for beating the game before 1000 AD, which gives you about 100 turns to win.
It's not that these remaining sons of bitches are hard, it isn't that guides don't exist making these much easier to attain.
But in the end I've spent hours trying and always seem to be just that short.
The next game: Forza Motorsport 3
Do you guys have any games you never seem able to S-rank?
