I'm about to go pick up my pre order for this game in a little while. Is it good? I have a thought of just canceling the pre order and getting my money back for something different. I'm not sure

I honestly think it should be a rental or just wait till the price drops. The game is alright but it's frustrating. It's also not an easy 1000 by any means.

I think there's a thread about this but I'll answer it anyways.
There's a big bridge close to the second camp I think. In the middle of it is a ramp slow down before you hit the ramp so you'll fall straight down. Cheevo unlocked.

For the Hello, world achievement and the similar ones where you have to travel from one camp to another. Can you switch vehicles mid way through by pressing start or do you have to do it with one vehicle?

The Doppler trucks reveal the locations of Vista's, Liveries, and Challenges. One truck each.

I've got a question now: Do doppler trucks automatically show up on your map when you unlock a new camp or do you have to win races there first?

You have to win races. Winning a race can make one of 4 vehicles appear. A Vista Doppler truck, a Livery Doppler truck, a Challenge Doppler truck, or a Maverick vehicle. On the map, Vista trucks are a green arrow, Livery trucks are blue, Challenge trucks are red, and Mavericks are purple. Go crash into them to collect them.

Note that these trucks are in addition to any gear or vehicles you win in the race.

I've heard that if you go into the water while on a bike or quad you can do a swim type glitch if you hold x while the game respawns you.

Winning races will unlock more cars for purchase. You can only purchase 49 total cars. The rest are unlockables.

I cant get the Hello,World achievement.
I have done it twice now and no achievement!
I drive from Offshore Shack Camp get to & enter Tsunami Reef Camp beside the crashed tanker it loads the menu but no achievement.
I do crash alot & change my car does this matter?
Can you do this in Offline free roam or Online free roam?
Do you need to specificly enter Offline/Online free roam?
all i have been doing is going to Offshore Shack Camp and pressing (B) to leave then driving to Tsunami Reef Camp.
Is this a Glitch?

Sounds like you've got a glitch. That sucks. Online free ride and offline work for it. It doesn't matter how many times you change cars. Plain and simple you should have it by now but the game hates you.

Firstly horrible achievements? If you bought this game for achievements you might want to rethink why you play video games. As for glitches there is remarkably few of them considering the scope of the game. I have encountered I think 2 both of which escape me as they were nothing significant.

As for the AI I totally agree lol, The AI is a joke in this game If anything should be changed the AI should be it.

I'm going to have to agree with the achievements. This is not the game to get if you're looking for a quick 1000. It'll probably take you 60+ hours to get all of everything.
