Closing Remarks

I’d say the overall best strategy for getting every achievement is by playing through Story Mode first, completing 10 missions for each game with S-rank, then finishing everything else. You’ll probably get a good number of these achievements passively by doing this. Not only that, but you should also have enough coins to buy all the necessary museum collection items by that point (which cost 230 coins combined).
 
 
Most of these achievements shouldn’t give you too much trouble. Personally, I found the missions achievements to be the most challenging of all these.
 
 
That’s everything you need to know for earning every achievement in Sonic Origins. Don’t forget to rate + like this guide so it can help others. Thanks for reading!
