One trick that I'm working on with 720 doing the downhill race is timing the landing with the direction the skater is turned when hitting the next ramp. I can consistently get a silver medal without jumping and staying on the "inside" of the turn into the next ramp. It's still extremely hard to pull off reliably though.
Surprisingly, getting the Gold Medal in 720 was easy for me. Didn't take but three or four attempts. Smash TV, however, is kicking my ass, which surprises me. I own it for the NES, and even downloaded it on the XBLA and have made it to the second and third level before, on my own. Can't even beat the first boss in this one. I'm sure I'll nail it before too long. Only have Smash TV, Joust II, Rampage and maybe one more achievement to get.
Now all I've got is Smash TV. I was on a roll today and knocked out 4 achievements in like 15 minutes. Surprised the hell out of me, especially the Joust 2. Went 2 and a half levels on my last life.
