Sounds like a good main set for a pretty underrated and hated N64 game in comparison to others made by Rareware. Gotta try this someday BUT as long as the game has the memory leak problem, game might freezes at Fungi Forest or Creepy Castle...

While I am working on the 101%, does anyone know if you can get the normal ending achievement at the same time as the 101% or do i need to just save before the final boss and redo it with all the golden bananas?
29 Jun 2020

Normal ending always comes first before secret ending, so I suppose that only the 101% run is enough.

I unlocked both at the same time. You can check my profile, the difference should be only the minutes it takes to start the secret one.

Mastered! Love the game and it's totally fun to get the 101%. There are interesting challenges in this set and i totally underestimated the All-Coin- and K.-Rool-No-Hit-Achievements, but after all i really enjoyed it.

So much complaining about these cheevos, yall arent hardcore at all. What do you think achievements are for if youre too lazy to get difficult ones?
7 May 2021

It's more like... do you really justify playing up to a certain point, having to constantly check the achievement list just to make sure you won't miss something or accidentally do something that'll lock you out of a achievement.

A lot of the achievements here feel like they come from an DK64 expert who took it upon themselves to make it for themselves.
7 May 2021

But god forgive me for accidentally using an instrument here, or killing an enemy there or playing the game the way it was intended and getting locked out of a cheevo and having to play up to that point again for another shot at an achievement.

This game is nothing like the original trilogy on the snes and I don't see the justification for boss fights to have cheevos based on if you got hit or not; seeing as most attack sporadically. Especially King K. Rool's dreadful 20 minute long fight.

This achievement list could benefit from a good scrubbing, but in no ways by making it a more casual experience. After all everyone using this site is looking for a greater challenge.

Just not challenges made by players who treat this game like a 2nd religion.

Please forgive my long tangent.XD

While most of these achievements aren't really that bad looking back, some of the missable ones are just too many for this kind of game. I feel like *only some* missables belong in a Bonus set. Not trying to piss anyone off, I'm grateful for the set,
7 May 2021

Nah, i don't share that critic. I really liked and enjoyed this set. Grab the 101% and watch out for the missable ones. Get every achievement is usual a little more tough at the end, so it was with Every-Coin- and NoDamage-Finalboss-Achievos.

Finally beat that stupid Pufftoss battle without taking damage. Five freaking rounds of going in circles trying to hit rings and not get hit by a million fireballs... brilliant -_-
6 Jun 2021

I think its perfect fair. Missable achievements are normal even in modern console games. And as for the achievements being "made by an expert for themselves", id say i hope so. Thats what I'd expect.
6 Jun 2021
22:50
I think its inherently the point of achievements is that you have to "achieve" something to earn them. Sometimes that's grinding, sometimes it's finding well hidden secrets.
15 Jun 2021

I have to agree with IIStickyII. The one thing I dislike about achievements is the mindset that comes along with it that every achievement must be this insane feat that takes hours of practice to achieve. New games have better saves to go back, too.
15 Jun 2021
14:27
Everyone else was voicing their differentiating opinions, so why not me too, lol. Though if you look at the Spyro sets on here, those are perfectly fair and acceptable I think. With so many devs, not everyone is gonna be happy. Just a fact
