Took me just under 2 hours to get this, I think the game is named Rage ironically for this achievement. But it got easier with practice, and the pause method definitely makes it easier. I learned that pushing A and pause simultaneously screws with the rhythm a bit. If you hit pause straight after, a millisecond or two, it gives the knife time to lift up and gives you a wee bit better gauge of where it is again. The only reason it is difficult is because of when two are adjacent, and you tend to hit either too early or too late, hitting A about a second after pause seemed to get most of these. It DOES get easier when you get the hang of the pause, but fuck, I'd tickle this achievement's nutsack with a chainsaw anyday.

Thank fucking GOD I never have to do that shit again. I was finally able to get the achievement using your pause method OP. Thanks so much for the awesome tip. I was seriously considering giving up and not going for the 1000 until I saw this. It still took a lot of tries to get it to work. But it finally did. Now I just have to finish up the last few crappy races and my Nightmare run. Then it's on to the co-op and multiplayer.

I'm not actually finding this method any easier :s

Actually, let me rephrase that, it's easier, just not any better.

No, I need to rephrase that again, it is easier, and it is better than trying it freely, but it's bringing it's own problems now. Possibly.

At some point whilst I go through round 5 I can guarantee that I'll hit A and start together, and it will show the red dot in the middle of the fingers, but once I restart it will still hit one. It is bullshit to an epic degree. I'm not sure if pausing it is causing it to delay, or if it's just the way the stupid ass piece of crap is designed, but I clearly hit the buttons over the table and it will still hit a finger. Stupid piece of crap.

Things like this make me question the intelligence of the developers sometimes. Seriously, at some point there must have been a general agreement that this horrible mini game that doesn't seem to work properly was a good idea to add. Did nobody after that bother to actually test it perhaps? Which brain sick gonad actually thought it would be a good idea. I think the only games where I've never once said 'my god, that is just plain bad, why did they add it in?' are Elder Scrolls ones. Every other game I've played this generation has had something that makes me ask 'why?' because its clearly a bad idea.

Edit: Finally got it using the pause method, but with a little twist. If any of you are having the same problem I did when using the pause method (sometimes your A button presses don't register) try flipping your pad upside down for round 5. I found that it was screwing up for me because when pressing both buttons, I was slightly quicker with my left thumb. flipping the pad upside down puts your left thumb on A and right thumb on start, meaning that, if like me your left thumb was slightly faster, you'll always be getting button press in before pause. Doing it this way I got it on my 2nd try, and I only screwed up the first try because my timing was bad, my button presses counted every time.

Also, in case anyone worried about this, because you're pressing both buttons every time, there's no risk of getting it mixed up if you play it with the pad flipped.

I still want to give Id a 2 fingered f-you because of this achievement though.

JOY, JOY, JOY!! FINALLY unlocked it. But only thanks to pause + A. Great guide by pwningyoursoul but, like others have mentioned, pause needs to be pressed like 2 milliseconds after rather than at the same time. Makes the world of difference! Can no get on and enjoy playing through the campaign and Scorchers DLC on ultra nighmare! :-D

Hmm, there seems to be a weird lag for me. The knife move ever so slightly after I press the button, making this extremely difficult. Sort of like playing Guitar Hero when the calibration is off. I press the button when the red is on the finger, and this lets me complete level 1.

I can't even get past the very first section of level 2 - 1,2,1,3... I tried the pause+A and I still can't get it.

Yup! This gets the job done!

Pausing was the way to do it.
