    I wrote this article about WP7 games with Broken Achievements. It's semi-up-to-date except that I won't be adding news games to it. Rather I'll do a second article in the future. But for now, here's a list that should be accurate.

    Games with glitched Achievements:

    • Brain Challenge
    • Crackdown: Project Sunburst (now delisted)
    • Deer Hunter 3D
    • Fusion: Sentient
    • Let's Golf 2
    • MiniSquadron
    • Revolution


    Honorable mentions (Achievement doesn't match the description/requires extra steps)

    • Bubble Town 2
    • Oregon Trail
    • Pac-Man Kart Rally
    • Pocket God
    • Super Monkey Ball (Crowns must be earned in every level of all worlds instead of only one.)


    Games whose glitched Achievements have been fixed and now work perfectly:

    • Battlewagon
    • Bug Village (Level 25 Achievement still glitchy)
    • Doodle Jump
    • Enigmo
    • Farm Frenzy 2
    • Gravity Guy (2 Achievements were unattainable until the version 1.1 update debuted)
    • Hasta la Muerte
    • I Dig It
    • More Brain Exercise
    • Rise of Glory
    • TextTwist 2
    • The Sims 3


    Games which require an active internet connection to view or earn Achievements:

    • Fusion: Sentient
    • Frogger
    • Need for Speed: Underground
    • Puzzle Quest 2 (Note: Achievements can be viewed offline. While they don't unlock offline, they will unlock the next time the player connects to Wi-Fi.)

    [*]Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit
    Need for Speed is Undercover?

    And with the Gravity Guy achievements is it in relation to the secret ones?

    The Endless Mode 50k Achievement doesn't unlock until 52-54000k.

    We're doing a post on the secret Achievements today too.

    I actually have the doodle jump ufo achievement I got it on accident, needless to say I know how to unlock it if you need help. I also just unlocked gravity guys impossible perfect run achievement so that one is also doable granted it takes a lot of patience. I did however get it in under 10 hours.

    Whitneyjj, sounds like you need to join TrueAchievements - Xbox 360 Achievement Tracking ! List EastX as your referrer and add me as a friend there.

    It's in a state of flux. The update is being sold as a different version instead of pushed as a proper update, AFAIK. We'll remove it when it's a legitimate update.

    I think the Puzzle Quest 2 issue may have been fixed in the last patch several months ago. I just haven't tested it or seen confirmation since then.

    KK, I am liking the game but this is what is putting me off it. I rarely play games whilst I am connected to the net.

    It should be noted that Super Monkey Ball has been fixed, although you need to get perfect on ALL worlds, not just one.

    Let's Golf 2 - Junior Golfer.

    got a support ticket open with Gameloft and xbox support really hope they sort this out it's such a good game.

    also why is Deer Hunter not on the glitched list?

    agree with this one, Junior Golfer does unlock on your phone, just does not sync with xbox...

    Paul, just got an update from Bryan Mitchell (from Playful Art) about Revolution:

    I don't have any control over the matter. Microsoft continues to hold up the process by adding new problems to the bug database on every certification submission. Even bugs that were never identified before, and bugs that don't actually exist and cannot be duplicated by half their team. It is nearly impossible to get this out. It is terribly frustrating.
    For anyone that wants more info on the broken Revolution achievement see the forum here: Gold Level 47 - Page 2 - Xbox360Achievements.org

    That is a huge shame. I hate how little priority Microsoft gives to fixing Achievements.

    An update from Glu about the All Year Round achievement:

    We are sorry about this problem. We have sent these reports to the team for review. Unfortunately this game is no longer on the active list so it is not likely that it will be updated anytime soon. Maybe in the future.

    Apologies for the inconvenience.

    Regards,
    Glu Mobile Customer Care

    Augh! Well, I also asked them about it in an upcoming developer interview. So we'll probably get a more official, PR-filtered response later this month.
