help with car minigame

Hi!
Can anyone help with tips or something for the car/satellite minigame? I am so stuck on the third episode because of it, and it's driving me insane. I'm so tense!!!

Even better, can anyone help me skip it? XD

I second that request! I am stuck in the very same spot and it does not seem to get easier each time I try to complete the stupid satellite mission. Almost ready to just go trade in the game and be done with it.

Follow the cars in front of the one you're tracking...it's a small heads up on where the car will be turning next.

The third episode one is a real controller breaker. The car in front is too far ahead and off the screen most of the time, there are no visible roads that the car is following and then at 3 or 4 points for no apparent reason the car you are trailing becomes invisible and you just have to guess and hope. The only real advice I can give is to to do it as fast as possible; if you don't get the first 2 levels out of the way almost perfectly then the last part will be impossible.

I would think it would be a lot easier with Kinect or Move because obviously no-one bothered to test it with a regular controller.

the busted controls make this mini-game insufferable

I tried the Episode 3 GPS minigame at least a dozen times before passing it. "Thank God" I thought when I finally finished it, hoping to crank through the rest of the game and send it back to NF.

There really aren't any tips other than what people have already said. If you don't get the first two levels quickly at the start, you might as well start again. I ran out of time a couple of times with the last level almost complete. There was cursing.

Sadly there is another GPS game in the last episode. I only tried it once, before calling it a night, but on the plus side, there are discernable roads in that minigame, so I expect it won't be quite as frustrating.

Ack - there are two GPS minigames in episode 4. Neither is anywhere near as bad as the one in episode 3 however. The first in Ep 4 took me 3 tries, the second one I actually am proud to say I got on the first try.

Another 1000/1000 - I need to update my sig.

Holy cow, how r u guys having so many problems with this?? I found all of them easy did all of them 1st try except the 3rd mission one car was kinda fast. Only advice I can say is keep the reticle on the red dot at all times and be slow on how you controll it also look at the white dots ahead of the dot your following, if u know where they are going, you know where the cars going so just follow and be slow. Easy game there sould be difficulty

My tip. take a break and try after 30 min rest, I did this and got it on first try.

Like another poster said, if you dont get the first two right away, start over

If anyone happens to read this: Is this easier with Kinect? If so, I'll hook mine up. If not I think I'm done for the night on this one.

This game does not support Kinect.

The Episode 3 one took my three tries. I wonder if the it always follows the same pattern. If so people might try that. I think the hardest part is there aren't any roads. The Episode 4 GPS ones are hard, but at least it is confined to roads then.

uh... what?

not sure what's going on. didn't fail a single mini game. if anyone is scared about not picking up this game for an easy 1000 because of the above posts, i wouldn't be. not sure why everyone is having such a difficult time. you just have to move your stick a little bit in whatever direction.

Well, for some people it's easy, and some it's not. sheesh. I'm done with this game at 700, this 3rd car minigame isn't worth whatever it is I'll break. I can get the 1st 2 done in 20-30 seconds, but that last one is just rediculous. You lose all your progress so quickly...The fact thiat this game is dogshit doesn't make we want to go further anyway. The voice acting is just painful. This is a game I regret 100% (And If I ever do lose my marbles long enough to 1K it, I'll still stand by that statement)

I agree F the 3rd level satellite game. I trie 3 times, same thing every time, i get it close and all of a sudden im off the car for no time and im at 0... I want to hit something right now... It would be easier if this game wasnt so painfully awful!

And if you are having trouble with it, take a break, drink a beer... And then just chill... It made me crazy, but got it first time after a 25 minute break....
