Warning: Before you start going after Achievements, make sure you do NOT have any cheats enabled, because that turns off the unlocking of Achievements for your savegame. – It’s always best to use cheats on a separate or non-saved file anyway, especially now that the game automatically saves your progress when you hit checkpoints.
