5 Easy Games To Help Boost Your Gamerscore

A lot of us are really into increasing our Gamerscore by earning Achievements in various games on the Xbox 360 and Xbox Live Arcade. Some games are extremely stingy with handing out the Gamerscore. I admit I like getting an average of 500-600 Gamerscore for every Xbox 360 game I play, sometimes I feel cheated if I get less. The Lego Star Wars games in particular are tougher to get Achievements on, I usually prefer games that can give me the most score with the least amount of time. Keep in mind that the games I’ve chosen in the list can and will get you some fast, easy Gamerscore, but I never said these were actually good games. You might have to suffer for a few hours here or there in order to tough out some of these.

1.Peter Jackson’s King Kong
This was a launch title for the Xbox 360, it was also available on a plethora of other platforms, but only on the Xbox 360 version can you earn Achievements and Gamerscore. Peter Jackson’s King Kong isn’t the worst game on this list by a long shot. In fact, it’s quite fun and you can even use cheat codes to breeze through. Most of the launch titles for the Xbox 360 have really easy Achievements and this one gives you the full 1000 just for beating the game. The game itself can be beat in about four hours and as I said earlier it guarantees you a pretty easy 1000 Gamerscore.

2.Madden 06
This is another one of those launch titles for the Xbox 360. Madden 06 doesn’t even feature color commentary in the game, but you can easily get all 1000 Gamerscore by playing a single game or two and then by simulating the franchise mode for twenty-five seasons. I think the simulation is the hardest part, but you can get all the Achievements in around four and a half hours. I think early on EA wasn’t exactly sure how to put the Achievements in their games, now days the Madden games are incredibly tough to get significant Gamerscore from, but back in 2005 it was really easy.

3.Lost:Via Domus
Lost Via Domus is a game that fans of the television show Lost usually pay a visit to, this is how I found out about the game. I never really got into the series when it was originally broadcast, but I recently watched the entire series on Netflix and really enjoyed it. When I heard there was a video game that takes place on the island and that features some of the actual cast from the series, I went and bought the game. As a video game, it’s pretty bad, I mean it handles like a shopping cart, there is all sorts of texture problems and the voice acting is laughable. The game as a Lost experience or adventure is quite entertaining however. If your a fan of the series then this will be an easy 1000 Gamerscore, if your not…then it’ll still be an easy 3-4 hour adventure that will net you a ton of Achievements.

4.Jumper: Griffins Story
Remember that Jumper movie from a few years ago? Probably not, but they did come out with a game to coincide with the release of the movie. You can literally get 500 Gamerscore in about twenty minutes. You get Achievements simply by attacking an enemy to the left or to the right. It’s almost like they knew they were making a horrible movie based game and so just threw in some Achievements as an afterthought. This is one of those games that I mentioned earlier that is probably going to be tougher to go through, only because it’s such a terrible game. Bad controls, poorly designed levels, poor voice acting and just a lame movie based story, probably one of the worst games of this generation.

TMNT is the reboot to the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle franchise, the ones thing that I didn’t like about this game is that it’s strictly a single player experience. All of the other Turtle games have some great co-op and seeing as how there are 4 turtles, it’d make a lot more sense for this to be a co-op or multiplayer game. As far as games with easy Gamerscore are concerned, this one is actually pretty decent, definitely not the best game of all time, but in about 4-5 hours you can pretty much get all the 1000 points.
