Introduction:
If you are familiar with the NFS: Undercover WP7 game that is also out on the marketplace, then you will be familiar with this game. The controls can be a bit touchy, so I recommend going to the game settings and turning the sensitivity right down, this will make the cars a lot easier to handle. The only missable achievements are Maximum Overdrive and Full Garage, you may not earn enough XP during the campaign to attain these, but you can simply earn more XP through Quickplay if you miss them.

Abbreviated Walkthrough:
Firstly I recommend you go for Clean Run, Cop Out and Gear Head as soon as you unlock those race types. It is much easier to get the achievements early on when the difficulty is still quite easy. They are not hard to get, but much less frustrating early on. You unlock cars as you progress in levels, and your levels go up from earning XP. XP can be acquired through doing certain things in the race, like speeding, drifting, jumping and so on. Winning the race will also give you an XP bonus. If by the end of the campaign you have not reached level 20 and unlocked all the cars, I recommend doing drag races through Quickplay. as they are the easiest and quickest source of XP.

Conclusion:
Really quite an easy game once you get used to the controls, it should not be too difficult to unlock all the achievements.

You've completed all races in Downtown district.


Story related, cannot be missed. This will unlock upon completing your last race in the Downtown District.

You've avoided all traffic cars in a Trime Trial.


Best to do this early on in the campaign when the difficulty is still quite easy. You need to avoid all traffic whilst still winning the race, hitting walls is perfectly ok though, so don't be afraid to hug the wall in tight areas. Drive cautiously, but not too slow, and you should still win the race.

You've completed all races in Beachfront district.


Story related, cannot be missed. This will unlock upon completing your last race in the Beachfront District.

You've won a Cop Chase without using nitro.


Really Quite simple, just race a clean race, avoid traffic and try not to let the police pass you. If the police do get in front of you, passing them shouldn't be too hard, just don't let them sit in front of you. Again, best done in the early levels.

You've completed the Story Mode.

http://tiles.xbox.com/tiles/5c/ns/0YCLiGJhbC9DFQRpXFFRGEQzL2FjaC8wLzcAAAAA5+fn-sPJ-g==.jpg Full Garage - 15http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/misc/g-icon.gif
You've unlocked all cars.


This is unlocked upon hitting level 20, which unlocks your final car. If you have not unlocked this by the time you've finished the campaign, then simply use Quickplay to do a couple more races until you acquire level 20. Drag races are easy and quick, so I recommend doing these for easy XP.

You've won a Drag Race having perfect shifts only.


To get a perfect shift, you need to change gears when the arrow on your speedometer turns light green. Do this through every gear and win the race to unlock the achievement. Make sure to shoot your nitrous as soon as your in last gear to assure you win the race. Again, best done in the early levels.

http://tiles.xbox.com/tiles/69/3L/0oCLiGJhbC9MFQRpXFFRGEQzL2FjaC8wLzgAAAAA5+fn-eTd8A==.jpg Maximum Overdrive - 20http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/misc/g-icon.gif
You've reached the maximum level.


If you have not unlocked this by the time you've finished the campaign, then simply use Quickplay to do a couple more races until you acquire level 20. Drag races are easy and quick, so I recommend doing these for easy XP.


http://tiles.xbox.com/tiles/Zt/L2/1oCLiGJhbC8wFQRpXFFRGEQzL2FjaC8wL0QAAAAA5+fn+dnSfQ ==.jpg Nitrous Burnout - 15http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/misc/g-icon.gif

You've cross the finish line by using nitro.


Very simple to unlock. Make sure you save some nitrous for the end of the race, and when you see the three green flags (or the green line on your mini map), shoot your nitrous so that it carries you across the line.

*Note that the wording of that achievement is copied straight from Xbox.com, its not my spelling :P

Any comments or tips are more then welcome :)

I know there are a couple of grammar and spelling errors, but they are intentional as that is how it appears on Xbox.com. ("Trime Trial" being one example)

Very easy 200g :) Takes a bit to get used to the crazy steering though, but if you turn the sensitivity down, its not too bad :)

I just did the time trial one in the campaign, I just restarted the first time trial race until I got it :P

Thanks :) I also thought I was first to 100% this game... but turns out I was beaten by a matter of hours! lol

Wasn't connected to xbl during reaching lvl 20 and beating a boss and now I have to beat the whole game again for those 2 achievements... tried rebeating the boss in quick race but that didn't work.

Thats sucks man, I always checked to make sure I was connected before I started every game... in fact I might make a note of that in my guide :)

Just happenned to me twice. Once in the beginning of the game (before 1st boss) it wasn't registering the no nitro and nitro at finishing line achievements, have to restart the carrer. Now I just beat 2nd boss and the game seems to think I wasn´t online and did not give me the achievement. S!, I was connected through 3G and WiFi at the time...

Yeah best thing to do, is just check your achievements from the main menu before you start playing. That will usually tell you if your connected or not :)
