The Xbox 360, Steam, and the PS3 have a system to celebrate gamers' accomplishments in games; on Xbox and Steam they're called achievements, and for PS3, they're trophies. Some are gained through story progression, while others take many, many hours to achieve...

On this page, you'll find a full list of the achievements in FFXIII-2, along with what's necessary to get them. For a few of the more difficult achievements, I've included links to guides. You can find the Steam achievement page here; it's not included in this table as all of the names/descriptions are the same.

Personally I found the achievements in FFXIII-2 to be the easiest in the trilogy to get; a couple were tricky, but they didn't take that much time. This is probably why it's the only game of the three I've gotten all the achievements in. (Curse you, Treasure Hunter.)
