How many of you can actually finish Shock and Awe (Extreme)?

Like many of you, I was stuck on the Shock and Awe (Extreme) challenge map for ages. My problem wasn't getting the score, it was finishing within the given time. So many times I got to round 4 with ~30,000 points, only to fail because I couldn't finish it before the floor lit up. The only time I ever completed the map, I got all three medals.

So I am curious, how many of you can actually finish the dang thing, with or without a qualifying score?

I did Shock & Awe Extreme with 3 medals in seven attempts just now but for whatever reason I'm finding Shock & Awe more difficult! I just can't reach the 30,000 mark, I think it's because I takeout the enemies too quickly rather than stringing a nice varied combo.

I spent a few hours on shock & awe extreme last night ... oh my god!! Not since the days of early Sega Mega Drive (Genesis) & the SNES have i found something so infuriating!! I wanted to throw my pad at the screen! On my last try before bed i did it!!! Im so happy it was so close though!! the screen was pretty much black when batman was doin his slow mo ... dont even think i saw his fist connect lol. That is the ONLY time i have beaten the clock! Anyway im now part of the perfect night club!! Ive 1000K on Batman!

i can understand people finding shock and awe hard as there is a time limit... i still cant do it... but rumble in the jungle? im not great at the challenges but i did this easier than some of the normal challenges... The combo goes sky high on the back on a henchmen... just keep the combo going hitting every one in the way and hit the opposite henchmen and jump straight on his back after...

If your serious about your edit you might want to spell check and sort out the grammar in your own post. I personally don't care how i type on message boards as long as the meaning gets across. just thought i would point that out

Yahoo!!! Just managed to get it. I was able to get 30K but just could never finish in time.

Also I just stayed in the starting area and Batclawed the goons at the start (assuming the electric poker guy is far away) and then Batarang'd the other goons - so with a few of them down it was easier to focus on bashing the regular goons and save a special move for the knife bastards and the electric poker guys.
I will not be coming back to this challenge anytime soon.

Congratulations. Whenever I tried batclawing those guys, the stun baton thug always gets to tase me whenever I pull him in. So I never resorted to that.

I rented for a week (from release date) granted it was hard, but it's not as hard as people make out, I was able to do it.

I have finished the level a couple times, but keep falling short of the 30k. It's kind of my fault, for not being overly consistent. I have trouble with the last stage, just killing everyone quickly enough. Too many stun batons even with takedowns and not enough critical strikes. I'll keep practicing, because there is notable improvement, but I've been plugging away for nearly a week now... Yikes.

I fucking knew if I posted here about how gimped I was at this level, I'd turn around and whip the silly shit out of it. The trick for me was on the 4th Stage to pick out the weaker guys and start building a combo off them. Once you have a combo going, then you can start taking down the tougher guys. Ignore the stun baton guys, as they can go down during your liberal use of the batarang.

Well after alot of tries, frustrations and patience I finally beat this challenge with the 3 medals, I had almost the same problems that everybody here had, I had 30+ points and I ended up losing to the timer in the last round.

It feels good to finally beat this challenge, now I am only missing Ritje so get my 1000/1000.

Lord in heaven almighty I literally just finished this god forsaken challenge! Literally hours a day would go into this thing.

I would recommend something no one has really said here, I think.

Get all your points in the first 3 rounds, I was under the category of plenty of points but not enough time. During the fourth round just spam the hell out of the batclaw for the first 10 seconds, try to ground pound some guys in there. And if you happen to be near the edge keep doing it and hopefully guys will get thrown over. After a year of this level I was able to finish it twice with this method.

I just tried to survive in this challenge and not cared much for score. After about 20 attempts i survived for the first time and got score over 31000.

Having completed the game twice (once on the 360 and once on GFWL) I'm now on my third run through and I'm not sure what problem people really have with this, best way to rack up points is in the early rounds so you can just beat the timer in the final round. As always variety helps so start the fight off with a batarang and then the bat claw then work gadgets in as you see fit. For the first two rounds try to avoid using takedowns unless you are about to get hit as when you are going through the takedown animation you can't get hit, just try and build up a combo and get points through hitting enemies and hopping around the arena. It's not that hard once you get the idea, the toughest bit is the final round and trying to beat it within the time limit, for this just go takedown crazy and don't worry if you lose your combo because you're escaping away from the shock floor.

I couldn't agree with you more!

It seemed the only way I was able to finish the Combat challenges was to finish the first two rounds perfectly.

In the first two rounds or even the third if you can, go for these goals.

Variation bonus 5000 - Use all of Batmans combos in one flow

Flawless Freeflow bonus 1000 - Beat a round in one flowing combo

Dark Knight bonus 500 - Beat a round without taking damage

Perfect Knight bonus 5000 - Beat an entire challenge without taking damage

On top of that, go for large combos as that is a super easy way to rack up the points.

This one is so frustrating. The score is not the problem as stated above, but time runs out on the 4th round every time when I've got the score needed. And I tried it a lot of times... I won't give up, only one bat in this challenge left to get 1000/1000 for the whole game... But it's not fun anymore, lol.

I finally finished this combat challenge with 3 bats after 4 hours trying (again...). I just jumped around after getting through it, probably waking up my neighbours with my cheering, lol. 1000/1000 for Arkham Asylum now, hooray!

I'll never ever touch this combat challenge again...
