I just picked it up from the bargain bin, is it an easy S rank?

Looks like it takes some grinding for some of the hardest ones. But I never played it, just going of glance of achievement list.

No it's definitely not an easy S. Some because of the no death runs, and some because of finding a full red hero set of matching armor. I did it because I couldn't stop playing it and just eventually did everything. If you put in the time, and get your character truly buffed out(gear, weapon, spells etc.), you will wreck every lvl like a god...but it takes a healthy time investment, and a partner to co-op with as well helps a lot.

I bet there are still people playing it...it's really addictive and will really suck you in if you stick with it.

If I am remembering right, some of the achievements have to do with random loot drops.

The game will take a good long time to S Rank. Some of the achievements revolve around getting the legendary set pieces which can take you a day or a month to find and complete. I loved the game, wishing they made a second, but if you do not like loot-based games with a lot of replay - pass on it.

If your playing games just to get points then you shouldn't be playing games in the first place.

No. Because finding the full set of armour will take you a wile.

I thought u had to play through the game multiple times and one time on the hardest difficulty? Too Human will really spam you with enemies, so that will probably be a hard one to get. Maybe an easy A but not an easy S.

Yeah, fuck people that get enjoyment out of things that I don't approve of.

Don't worry, it's going to be a trilogy.

It took me about 60 hours to S rank it. If you're at all good at games the "No Death" achievements are nothing, if they pop. I had to go through world 3 about 5 times to get it to pop. The Elite Armor set is the hardest to do. I traded for all of mine but the guy I traded with told me he didn't even get his first Elite armor drop for about 200 hours. There is one of two co-op achievements too so you may have issues with those.

Besides all that it's a fantastic game. It has it's issues but I absolutely loved playing it and I really wish it had done better so we could get those sequels.

I may have come along a little strong, but some people will go and play games that are just awful games just to get more points. I just play games that you know are fun.

If your only intersted in the game for the points, your doing it wrong. But by all means if you want to waste 100 hours on getting 1000GS, go right ahead, its your time and you can spend it however you want.
