Welcome to WRC Powerslide, developed by Milestone, they have approached the game with a top down camera perspective to add an arcade feel to the game with the addition of power ups the player can use such as Hailstorm, Cloud of Dust, Thunderbolt & Nitro for a fun and frantic racing experience all with the modern day WRC cars/teams with a multiplayer mode included to keep the racing fresh.


A few tips -
  • You can earn all the Power Up achievements apart from Improvised Slide in multiplayer quick matches.
  • Save your power ups, especially shields and nitro. Don't use them as soon as you collect them as they may benefit more when other opponents use power ups on you.
  • If you're still having trouble with the AI constantly using power ups on you, you can turn the power ups off completely in the options on the main menu.
  • The power ups you gain will depend on your position in the race, if you're in first place then you will only earn power ups that benefit a player in first place such as nitro (Flatout), shield (Extreme Pace) & Cloud which blinds any opponent behind you. Therefore, you must be in 2nd, 3rd or 4th place to acquire power ups such as Horn Power, Hailstorm & Thunderbolt but you can still earn any of the other power ups even if you aren't in first place.
  • Use :bbut: for handbrake around tight corners to maintain speed and start a drift, especially around hairpin turns as you will encounter many of them. Use :ybut: to respawn your car in case you crash, spin out or end up in a muddle.
  • The best car in terms of performance for each class are; WRC - CitroŽn DS3 WRC/Team CitroŽn Total WRT. Class 2 - Ford Fiesta S2000/team Yazeed Racing. Class 3 - Mitsubishi EVO X/Team Benito Guerra. You will unlock better cars (Crews) as you progress and win gold medals in the stages.

http://i1321.photobucket.com/albums/...ps59699460.pngHAILSTORM

Singleplayer -
Approximately half of the achievement list (6 achievements) are tied to using power ups. Power ups show up as spinning signs with exclamation marks throughout the track in races, you drive through these and you can use them instantly but beware, your opponents can also use them on you as well which is very frequent on this game in the last few stages.

You need to use the Flatout & Horn Power power ups 3 times each in a single race (not both power ups in a single race, just 3 uses of the same power up). You need to use the Extreme Pace, Thunder Bolt & Hailstorm power ups 10 times but these are accumulative across all events. The most specific one is the Cloud power which you must use only once but has to be in a Special Stage within the Wales Rally GB, which is the last stage on the singleplayer.

Ultimately, you need to 100% the single player in order to earn Rally king which means you need to earn a gold medal in every Rally. This will unlock 4 achievements of which 3 are specific to earning a gold medal in the Vodafone Rally de Portugal, Rally Guanajuato Mexico & Rallye de France - Alsace.

Multiplayer -
There is only one multiplayer achievement in the game International Rallyist which requires you to accumulate 45 minutes of total racing time in multiplayer events.

This power up will enable a red shield to your car that protects you from enemy attacks, it will also increase your max speed for a few seconds essentially giving you a small speed boost. Hitting an opponent with this power up in use will knock them off the track as well. This is the most frequent power up you will collect, regardless of the position you're in. Can be unlocked in multiplayer races.

Make sure you cross the finish line, if you end up with a DNF then it won't count as a "Valid" online race.

https://live.xbox.com/tiles/rj/5g/1I...fn+08+tQ==.jpg Rally king - 70:gsicon:
Complete the Single Player mode to 100% and win the final cup!

There are 8 Rallies in the singleplayer as follows with their corresponding difficulty levels each measured from a scale of 1-5, with 5 being the hardest.
  • Rallye Monte-Carlo (Difficulty 2)
  • ADAC Rallye Deutschland (Difficulty 3)
  • Vodafone Rally de Portugal (Difficulty 3)
  • Rally Italia Sardegna (Difficulty 3)
  • Rallye de France - Alsace (Difficulty 4)
  • Rally Guanajuato Mťxico (Difficulty 4)
  • Acropolis Rally (Difficulty 5)
  • Wales Rally GB (Difficulty 5)
Within each of the 8 Rallies are 3 Special Stages (SS1, 2 & 3). A Special Stage is basically a track with different routes/surfaces but in the same environment. You need to win each Special Stage in at least one WRC category car, Class 2 category car & a Class 3 category car.

Don't let the difficulty rating for each Rally fool you, they are all actually equally as easy. There is not much difference between 2 & 5 bar ratings apart from the increase of complexity of the tracks as you progress, the AI remain the same throughout and don't get any harder.

That's 3 races per Special Stage. 3 Special Stages within a Rally with a total of 8 Rallies. 3 x 3 x 8 - 72. You need to win 72 races, earn a gold medal in each race and you will unlock this achievement. See my tips above for more help.


https://live.xbox.com/tiles/JJ/CO/1I...fn+6GQPw==.jpg Asphalt king - 40:gsicon:
Win all the gold medals in the "Rallye de France - Alsace"

This is the 5th Rally out of 9 available in the singleplayer. You need to win all 3 Special Stages in any WRC, Class 2 & Class 3 category car. That's 9 gold medals. Difficulty rating 4/5.

Thanks for reading.

Cheers it's a fun little game mate.

Easy method for the power-up achievements is to just stop at a power-up pick-up location and keep pressing A. It will launch the power-up and pick up a new one right away. Doesn't work for all power-ups, as you need to be ahead of an opponent for some. But I had a hard time getting 3 horns in a race and doing it this way was really easy.

IEvil IMonkey 03-15-2013 03:07 AM

If you start to struggle on any stages or just get pissed off with the AI keep hitting you with power-ups just go back to the main menu and turn off the power-ups in the settings section

After doing this I was winning every race by 5-10secs =)

EDIT... I was even able to win by a large margin on new tracks I'd not even raced on before without being knocked off the track every 10secs by the AI power-ups

Man I didn't even realise you could turn them off! Thanks, I add that to the tips. :)
