Hardest time trials and speedruns?

What do you think?

Top 5 Time Trials:

1) Actino Rise (DLC)
2) Atrium 1
3) New Eden
4) Playground 3
5) Shard 1

Playground 3 and Shard 1 were very close

Top 3 Speedruns:

1) The Boat (7)
2) The Shard (9)
3) Heat (3)

The Boat and The Shard were very close as well

Imo Actino Rise isn't that hard, it's just different because instead of going straight ahead like on most courses you're going up a lot of the time, so it take some more practice. I would make a top 5 myself if it hasn't been a long time since I last played the game, and I don't remember which were the hardest for me. I only remember me not liking both the Shard levels so much :P

Also, am I the only one who didn't have trouble with the Shard speedrun? I died once and still made it. In the server room you just have to take your time instead of going straight for every enemy and you're fine.

I agree with your Time Trial picks, as those (plus Atrium 2) are the ones I only managed two stars on.

For the Speedruns, I'd throw Jacknife (2) in there, as it isn't too hard overall, but it is quite long and very easy to screw up near the end. Restarting the stage after 9-10 minutes is a pain in the ass.

I didn't have any problems with Heat (3), but I know some people have. The Boat (7) isn't too tough once you get past the guards at the beginning, and The Shard (9) is just annoying.

I dunno what it is with Heat, I can own all the individual pieces of it (and together, I think there were 3 time trials from it, all 3 starred) but it took forever to out it all together. Jacknife I got on my first try actually, it's long yes, but I didn't fuck up enough times/majorly enough to warrant a restart.

What pissed me off was the I owned the train level (chapter 4?) and beat my friends' top score by over a minute (beating the cutoff by over a minute and a half) then EA online just randomly discnnected and when I rebeat it, I beat the cutoff by 2 seconds.

I completely agree with the trials you listed. Shard One, New Eden, and Playground Three were the last of the retail trials I 3 starred. And Actino Rise and Atrium One are the only trials remaining that I've haven't 3 starred. Though I'd personally rank Atrium higher, only because there's so much shit to get hung up on if you don't pull off any given move just right.

The only speedruns I had to attempt more than once were chapter 2 and chapter 9. The rest I managed to finish on the first attempt.

Haven't played in a while but I like your list . Took me like 8 hours to 3* Atrium One. I wasn't even having fun doing it...it was frustrating.

Hardest imo

Shard 1, 2

Atrium 1, 2

Playground 3

Those 5 and Convoy 2 are the trials I never 3 starred, although for some reason I had trouble with Razzmataz.

The Actino's are not so bad once you've played them a while, they look more scary than they are.

I hate Atriums... both of them.
right now I've started from the beginning once DLC downloaded and I'm redoing every single time trial once more. I have about 30 stars after couple 2-3 hours.

I must admit that I didn't have any problems with Convoy 2.
actually I have more problems with Convoy 1, s ofar I have only 2 stars there.

I find both Cranes quite easy but there's always something that prevents me from 3 starring them, d'oh !

either way I find this game excellent. if there were only time trials I would admire the game the same. to me it's all about the time trials, they are simply perfect. I love those challenges, period.

The Shard

The Shard was an absolute nightmare for me; too many tricky jumps, and the final room was a massive pain to complete. However, it was very enjoyable. My second worst one would be The Boat, which made me feel like committing suicide over and over again until I finally completed it. My final speedrun that I hated was Jacknife, since I always got so far in it only to fall at the last hurdle.
