Game didn't recognize the Max Weapon Level achievements, nor win the game/win the game with S rank. ;(

ok why the game has a timer if there's no achievement about speedrun ??
Ryu 19 Dec 2017 13:49
i suggest achievements about weapon-only playthrough, like you can only z-saber until finish the game.
BerserkerBR 30 May 2018 00:27
All the S mission achivements can be done in ultimate mode

Mastered! Great set. While I am annoyed that 9,999 E-crystals is an achievement, it's more of a problem I have with the game itself (so many needed for Jackson...)

Wanna start this series. Firstly, any missables? And secondly, anything that’s extremely hard?
timenoe 17 Jun 2022 21:51
Mastered! Fantastic game. The hard mode clear achievement was definitely the hardest one in the set.
coveredingas 25 Dec 2022 22:20
Kamikoopa - probably old news to you at this point, but you can miss cyber elves during missions. However, this set will require you to play multiple times anyway - there is always New Game+. You don't need to use New Game+ to complete this set; the most efficient route will require a guide.

Hard Mode would be a difficult achievement, but you can grind cyber elves to your heart's content. If you know where to get the elves, you can make yourself nigh-on unkillable. The grinding is the only real barrier to victory, but turning your emulator's fast forward feature to 2.5-3x so you can still control the game while moving back and forth between groups of enemies makes it far more manageable.

The S rank achievement WOULD be really difficult if you had to do it on normal or hard mode, but - you can do it on ultimate (where the defensive and health elves are active without hurting your rank) and you don't need to get an S rank on the final mission, you just need to enter the final stage with an S rank. (As of December 2022.)

Overall, if you are patient, this is easier than mastering the set for X1 or X2.
coveredingas 26 Dec 2022 04:55
I want to make a correction - you will need to do at least one playthrough on New Game + to unlock Ultimate Mode. So four playthroughs, minimum. I did five.

Overall - a solid set. The only issues I have with it are issues with the game itself. Namely that ungodly grind to get all the elves fed and grown. I don't know what they were thinking with that - they could cut the crystal requirements to a quarter of what they are and they'd be fairly reasonable. On a normal playthrough where you level all the weapons to max you'll only get a couple of the permanent elves ready to use.

MMZ1 is a really solid game at its core with some rough edges that make it hard to go back to. A fun game to master, but with this out of the way - I'm not sure I'll ever come back to it. 2 did everything better.

i hate this game
coveredingas 19 Jan 2023 22:51
For anyone looking to just play this after finishing - there's a patch on that changes the crystal requirements to be much more reasonable and I think makes other quality of life changes. I hope a set of achievements is eventually developed for that version of the game.

Mastered! Thanks for the set.
