xbox 360 Baja Achievements 1000/1000 -- details / discussion
Ok, This took a little longer to make than I thought... oh well its done now, enjoy.
I have seen posts like this for other video games I have played in the past (in other forums), so I thought I would make a similar thread detailing all of the xBox 360 Baja achievements available. Mostly to try and make getting some of them a little easier.
This is a complete list of all the xBox Achievements you can accumulate while playing Baja: Edge of Control
This list was copied from here (although, I re-ordered some of it in this thread):
This looks like a fairly easy game to get all 1000 Achievement points for, although, it will probably be VERY time consuming.
If you have more info / or notes for any one of these achievements, please feel free to post about it!
Questions are welcome too.
Although, if you just ask what all this is for, you will be laughed at.... use google if you really don't know
Also, Please don't post JUST to say that going specifically for these is a waste of time.
The people who do go for these KNOW that already (I usually don't go for achievements myself).
It is something that exists to have fun in addition to what the game already has.

Re: xbox 360 Baja Achievements 1000/1000 -- details / discussion
So far out of all these Achievements, I have 28 out of 50, but only 370 out of 1000 points.
I have all the "Career Achievements", along with:
5 invite wins
won 1st race
hot pit repair
help from above
(those last two were also gotten in career playing, the helicopter was done during a rally race)
Out of the ones I have remaining, I would say the "Hill Climb" and "Open Class" wins look to be about the hardest, since I suck at both those types of events.
Damn I hate the "Hill Climb" events...
So does anyone actually have all 1000 points yet?
Who has the most?
