And I have a $2300 TV.

I've tried for a grand total of 10 hours to get the Mile High Club acheivement.   I've tried strategies from online.   I've tried everything.   

I either get screwed by a friendly, bombarded by enemies, hung up on a corner or something, flash myself, etc etc etc.

A couple times I've made it to right down the hall from the VIP.   ONCE early on I made it TO the VIP, but I was so paniced that I shot the VIP instead of the bad guy.   frown frown frown frown frown

I want this achievement.   I don't know why.   But I'm getting to the point of going nuts trying to do this over and over again.

What exactly is the Mile High acheivement.  Just curious.  I don't follow acheivements at all in any game, but curious what could drive you this bonkers.  Must be one tough sonofabitch.

In a nutshell: 

There's a bonus level which is a plane that has a hostage at the end of it.    You have to go through the entire airplane fighting veteran level badies (the variety that kill you with one or two shots) in 60 seconds to reach the hostage.    It's almost impossible with the 360 controls.

What's the actual reward/achievement for completing it fast though, just bragging rights?

Maybe you should get another hobby?  Or attempt to become of real member of the real Mile High club!  Now THAT would be an achievement!

agreed (it would likely take less than 10 hrs, as well)...


parents: see what achievements can do to your kids?...

Oh, that mission.  Yeah, I beat that on my first play through.  You must be talking about on Veteran level or something.  I was on normal and it was not too hard.  I can't imagine ANYONE actually beating the game on Veteran. 

Not sure I would believe it if I was told someone had.

I'm halfway through (maybe a little better than halfway through) on veteran.   Check my achievements:  msduncan is the live id.

And yes, that achievement is for veteran difficulty.    On the difficulty you played the mission, you got like 3 minutes or something to get to the VIP and the enemies were much weaker.

Yeah I spent about an hour one night trying to figure out how to do it on the 360 and just stopped and went back to multiplayer.

I'm also on my way through the game on veteran, though I'm taking it a lot more slowly than a lot of people. I usually only get through one level or so before I get multiplayer invites and those are just too tempting to pass up most of the time.
