Achievement Guide

THIS IS A WORK IN PROGRESS. Can you please refrain from passing judgement until it starts to look remotely like a complete guide. Feel free to post constructive criticism, praise is also welcome too

Archery Ace 15
Score a perfect round in Archery.
A round consists of four Ends; there are three arrows in each End. This means you have to score all twelve arrows, with the maximum possible score, which is 120. You do this by hitting the inner yellow ring, which is worth 10 points.

Unfortunately it is not as simple as aiming straight for the centre of the target, as you have to factor in a fluctuating wind. There is a digital wind meter to the left of the screen. Additionally a wind sock is up in the top left of the screen. It provides you with an indication of how strong, and what direction the wind is blowing. The stronger the wind, the more you have to aim away from the centre ring. You don't have adjust the height of your aim as the wind will not effect it.

The wind strength will not really fluctuate during an End. However it may change slightly, following the completion of an End. If you find wind strength is too high and not to your liking, restart training, you will get a different strength.


Backstroke Superstar 15
Swim the 100m Backstroke in under 53.10 seconds.
See "Butterfly Idol"

Back To Back Glory 35
Win 5 events in a row on Xbox LIVE.
I advise on hosting and choosing your five best events, especially if on the whole they are difficult to master. If you are struggling to win five in a row, you can always boost, to do this find a buddy here and setup a player match. It's best to choose the Field events; the AI doesn't set very high scores to beat.

Balance Beam Boss 15
Score 16.80 points or over in the Balance Beam.
To meet the required mark you will need to choose the ‘Hard’ difficulty. It is not possible to get a score, high enough on the other two difficulties. I would advise practicing the routine several times before making a serious attempt. You must get a high percentage of ‘Excellents’ and ‘Perfects’, it is key that you don’t miss any steps. The dismount comes very quickly, it is quite easy to miss the final button command so be ready. A respectable landing may get you those extra points you need.

Should you still have trouble beating the required points, try using slow-mo in Olympic mode to slow down certain aspects of the routine. Click Here for 'Slow-Mo' overview

Best With Friends 20
Play a 4 player game on one Xbox 360 console.
Unfortunately you are unable to have four players on a single controller. There are quite a few events, in which you take it in turns to go. However the game requires each player to have their own individual controller. If you don’t have four Xbox controllers, peripheral controllers such as the Guitar Hero wireless guitar or Rock Band drums will work. If using any of these peripheral controllers they are only suitable for the achievement, but are not much use in actually playing the game seriously.

Breaststroke Bruiser 15
Swim the 100m Breaststroke in under 59.30 seconds.
See "Butterfly Idol"

Butterfly Idol 15
Swim the 100m Butterfly in under 50.40 seconds.
I suggest attempting this in training, getting a really good start can be the key to beating the time. Therefore if you false start the race will automatically restart, and then you don’t risk disqualification from a competition. If you get the perfect start your speed bar will be maxed out from the start. This will save you the added energy to get it to this point

I would also recommend using the analog sticks. It takes less energy to keep your swimmer at maximum speed, downside is it takes more coordination. It’s not a problem if you prefer using the combination of A + B, it just takes a lot more effort to maintain high speed.

If you feel yourself getting tired press pause, (or Xbox button) it will give yourself a break to get your energy back. Make sure you time your kick turn well, if you can get a ‘perfect’ it will keep your swimmers speed at maximum, which will help you if your losing your speed towards the 50 metre mark.

Should you still have trouble beating the time, try using slow-mo in Olympic mode to maintain top speed. Click Here for 'Slow-Mo' overview

Career Athlete 50
Complete an Olympic Games mode game.
Progress through the Olympic Games mode, which is available to you from the main menu. You will have to meet certain criteria to proceed to the next day. These range from qualifying for an event to winning at least four gold medals out of five events. Should you fail any day it will be game over, however it is not a problem, simply reload and try again. It will take anywhere from 2 hours and upwards depending on how competent you are at the game.


Changing Faces 10
Play with a custom team.
From the main menu go to ‘Customise Team’ and choose men’s 100m. Then you will be given the option to choose a team member. Simply press right once, (or choose any character to your liking) accept your new team member. Then back up to the main menu making sure you save the changes. Go to ‘Training’ mode, when selecting your country press X to change to custom team. Select the men’s 100m and simply finish the race.

Class Act At Cycling 15
Finish a Cycling Team Pursuit race in under 3 minutes 56 seconds.
The key to beating the time is maintaining maximum speed whilst preserving each rider’s stamina. Balancing your rider positions is crucial; if you change too early your riders will not have an enough time to recuperate. Too late your riders will be exhausted. If you find yourself getting tired pause the race every so often and take a break.

Should you still have trouble beating the time, try using slow-mo in Olympic mode to maintain top speed. Click Here for 'Slow-Mo' overview

Crackshot 15
In 10m Air Pistol score 10's for all shots in a round
This is extremely difficult as your crosshair is reasonably unstable. Firstly you have to line up your accuracy. Strive to line up the vertical and horizontal lines as close to the bull’s-eye as you possibly can. It is not a problem if they are not lined up perfectly, it means you have to compensate with your aim. For example if your vertical line is to the left of the bull’s-eye you have to aim to the right. If your horizontal line is above the bull’s-eye you will have to aim below.

The longer you take to line up your crosshair the more unstable it becomes. This is not a problem though, immediately let go of the left analog stick. Your crosshair will go to the bottom of the screen and it will reset. Try to be as smooth as possible with small inputs, aim for the centre circle whilst factoring in your accuracy. In total you have to score a minimum of 100 with ten shots.

Should you still have trouble scoring a peferct round, try using slow-mo in Olympic mode to slow down the accuracy lines. Click Here for 'Slow-Mo' overview

Decathlon Dominator 40
Win all 10 events in a Decathlon.
The Decathlon can be found under ‘Competition’ from the main menu and is on the last set of events. It consists of varying disciplines from the track and field. I suggest practicing the events first so you become competent at all disciplines. The Decathlon includes:
100 metres
long jump
shot put
high jump
400 metres
110 metre hurdles
discus
pole vault
javelin
1500 metres

Decathlon Points Premiere 15
Score over 9000 points in the Decathlon.
The points you receive vary for each event, they are dependant on your performance in each of those. The faster your time or the further a distance, the more points you will receive. It’s easier to get a bigger point’s haul on the field events such as high jump and javelin especially if you can get near the Olympic Records.

Discus Champion 15
Throw the Discus over 76.90m.
To beat the discus distance you will need good timing as it’s not all about power. You have plenty of time to build of the necessary amount required. It is essential that you do go into the red; otherwise you will throw a foul. Also you will need to correctly judge when to press the right trigger. If you press it too early or too late it will also be thrown as a foul. The ideal timing is for the arrow to be dead centre, with the meter (inside the arrow) filled up to the top of yellow or small amount of green. If you go too far into the green the discus will get too much height and not enough distance.

Should you still have trouble beating the distance, try using slow-mo in Olympic mode to slow down the accuracy and height meter. Click Here for 'Slow-Mo' overview

Elite Freestyler 15
Swim the 50m Freestyle in under 21.50 seconds.
See ‘Butterfly idol’

Floor Exercise Expert 15
Score 17.30 points or over in the Floor Exercises.
You will need to do this on Hard difficulty, otherwise you will not be able to score enough points. You cannot really afford to miss a step, however there is no need for every step to be ‘Perfect’. If you can get a good percentage of ‘Excellent’ and some ‘Perfect’ it’s not a problem to get a few ‘Ok’ and ‘Good’. It’s best to learn the routine and watch out for the quick steps in succession as the speed can build up rapidly.

Should you still have trouble beating the required points, try using slow-mo in Olympic mode to slow down certain aspects of the routine. Click Here for 'Slow-Mo' overview

Good Host 10
Host an Xbox LIVE game.
Simply host a player or ranked competition on Xbox Live. It can consist of any number of events that you wish to play. The achievement will unlock following the completion of the first event.

Hammer Hero 15
Throw the Hammer over 86.80m.
The hammer requires good rhythm to achieve maximum power. You are required to keep the blue ball, within the middle of the orange segment. The smoother you are, the more you can consistently keep the ball within the middle of the segment. To break the distance required you don’t have to fill meter completely, at least an inch short will probably be enough. Time your throw so the arrow is dead centre, otherwise your throw maybe liable to go foul, or be thrown with too much height or not enough.

Hardcore Olympian 100
Complete Olympic Games mode without quitting or failing a day.
You must do this in your first season and in one play through. This means if you would like to take a break, you must leave your Xbox on in the current session. You are able to bypass the challenges, although I suggest doing the first one at least to build up your attributes. Also you do not have to win every event, meeting the target for the day is sufficient.

The hardest day by far is the final one; you must win four out of the five events. These events are the 50m freestyle, parallel bars, long jump, 100 metre and the 25m rapid fire. I suggest practicing every event before attempting this. Being proficient in these particular events, will help as you only have one attempt at each of the disciplines.

Heavyweight Lifter 15
In Weightlifting lift a total of over 475kg.
The weight is split over two disciplines, ‘Snatch’ and ‘Clean & Jerk’. I suggest trying to lift 220kg in Snatch and 257.5kg in Clean & Jerk. However if you struggle with 220kg it shouldn’t be a problem to take a few kilos off and lift the added weight in Clean & Jerk as it’s a bit easier to lift the bigger weight. The difficult part and can be a bit fiddly is when trying to balance. It’s imperative that your smooth with the analog sticks and try to avoid any heavy movements.

Should you still have trouble beating the required weight, try using slow-mo in Olympic mode to slow down certain aspects. Click Here for 'Slow-Mo' overview

Heptathlon Heroine 40
Win all 7 events in a Heptathlon.
The Heptathlon can be found under ‘Competition’ from the main menu and is on the last set of events. It consists of varying disciplines from the track and field. I suggest practicing these events first so you become competent at all disciplines. The Heptathlon includes;
100 m hurdles
high jump
shot put
200 m
long jump
javelin throw
800 m

Heptathlon Points Pro 15
Score over 6900 points in the Heptathlon.
See "Decathlon Points Premiere"

Herculean Effort 30
In the Javelin make 3 consecutive throws over 95.00m.
See ‘Javelin Sureshot’

High Jump Veteran 15
In the High Jump clear 2.40m.
When attempting this there is some margin for error. You don’t need a flawless run as 2.40 metres isn’t particularly very high. The vital part is the take off, a ‘Perfect’ one at that will ensure you clear the height, as long as you hit all of the other commands.

Javelin Sureshot 15
Throw the Javelin over 98.50m.
You will need to get your power bar to maximum, throw the javelin as close as you can to the line with an approximate 45 degree angle. There is a small amount of flexibility as far as the angle and how close to the line. Obviously the nearer to these parameters the more chance you have of beating the distance.

Kayaking Crazy 15
Finish the Kayak course in under 112 seconds.
This is an extremely difficult event due to the control system. To stand any chance of beating the time, you will have to navigate the course flawlessly. Any penalties will certainly put you out of contention. Plenty of practice will be required as prior knowledge to the course is essential. The gates that you are required to row upstream are tricky as you have to turn sharply then when through the gate row around the outside. Also be careful when rowing through the gates that are not raised above the water level as they are easy to knock into and you will be given a time penalty.

King Of The Hurdles 15
Run the Hurdles in under 12.80 seconds.
I would attempt this on the Women’s 100m hurdles. Again like most of the other time based achievements the start is key. I suggest doing this in training mode to ensure you’re not penalised for any false starts. Ultimately good timing with your jumps is crucial; if you hit a hurdle heavily there will probably not be enough time to recover.

Should you still have trouble beating the time, try using slow-mo in Olympic mode to help maintain speed. Click Here for 'Slow-Mo' overview

Leader Of The Pack 10
Beat a friend's personal best.
This must be done in training mode. Once you select ‘Training’ from the main menu, you are given an opportunity, to select a friend from your friends list. You then must beat one of their personal best times on any event. If you don’t have a friend with the game, then you have a few options available to you. Firstly if you have another Xbox live enabled profile (gold or silver), on your Xbox then add that other profile to your friends list. Set a time on any event, switch back to your main profile and beat the time. Alternately you can boost the achievement, to find a buddy check here.

Long Distance Master 15
Run the 1500m in under 3 minutes 26 seconds.
See ‘Middle Distance Professional’

Long Jump Legend 15
In the Long Jump clear 8.96m.
The long jump distance is quite tough to beat as it requires exact criteria. You will need to have the power bar full, have a 'perfect' takeoff with a 45 degree angle to clear. Even if you have a 44 or 46 degree angle or are slightly short of power you will not clear the desired distance.

Should you still have trouble beating the required distance, try using slow-mo in Olympic mode to slow down certain aspects of jump. Click Here for 'Slow-Mo' overview


Middle Distance Professional 15
Run the 800m in under 1 minute 41 seconds.
It is possible to do this by yourself against the AI however it is extremely difficult. You need the power maxed for the whole duration of the race. This is a bit tricky as your athlete will get tired extremely quickly. I suggest pausing the race whenever you feel yourself getting tired for a rest. Alternately an easier method is to race online or with a friend, take it in turns slipstreaming each other while running at full speed. This method means you will preserve your stamina which in turn will make it easier to sustain your top speed.

Should you still have trouble beating the required time, try using slow-mo in Olympic mode to maintain top speed. Click Here for 'Slow-Mo' overview


One Lap Winner 15
Run the 400m in under 43.10 seconds.
See ‘sprint powerhouse’

Online Olympian 20
Win an event on Xbox LIVE.
Simply win an event on Xbox live. It can be in Ranked or Player match and any number of players. Also it doesn’t matter which event, therefore host or find an event that you are particularly good at. If you are still unable to win it is possible to boost. To do this find a buddy here and setup a player match. I suggest doing a field event such as high jump and javelin as the AI don't set particularly high scores.

Parallel Bars Prodigy 15
Score 17.50 points or over in the Parallel Bars.
You must choose the Hard difficulty to get the required number of points. The hardest part of this event, is matching up the arrows with your hands. Once you learn the routine it will become easier to know what position the analog sticks have to be in. The closer you get the arrows to your gymnast’s hands the more points you get. Anything with ‘Good’ or better, with a perfect dismount should get you sufficient points.

On the latter part of the routine, there is a section, where you are required to match up the arrows three times in a row. Once you have found good positioning on the first move, keep the analog sticks in a constant position, the arrows will not move for the other two moves.

Should you still have trouble beating the required points, try using slow-mo in Olympic mode to slow down certain aspects of the routine. Click Here for 'Slow-Mo' overview

Platform Diving Demon 15
Score over 360 points in the 10m Platform Diving.
Unlike the three meter springboard there is some margin for error. The dives are hard to master, due to you controlling your diver via the left and the right analog stick. Try to keep the balls within the middle of their respective segments, the closer to the middle the more marks you will receive. You will need to choose the five hardest dives:

Reverse 3.5 somersault tuck 3.4
Inward 3.5 somersault tuck 3.2
Backward 1.5 somersault 3.5 twist free 3.2
Armstand Back 3 somersault tuck 3.2
Forward 3.5 somersault pike 3.0

Pole Vault Victor 15
In the Pole Vault clear 6.00m.
The Pole Vault is a difficult discipline, due to you not be given much time to build up speed. To clear 6.00 metres you will have to max out your speed, this will give you the biggest highlighted area possible. Even if you can manage to time your button press within the area you may still knock the bar off. Therefore it may take several attempts even when successfully meeting all the criteria.

Should you still have trouble beating the required height, try using slow-mo in Olympic mode to your increase speed. Click Here for 'Slow-Mo' overview


Quickdraw King 15
In 25m Rapid Fire Pistol score 10's for all shots in a round
You will get a huge advantage if you can get your breathing ‘Perfect’ or ‘Excellent’, otherwise it will be a bit more difficult. Once you get your breathing sorted only apply horizontal direction to your crosshair. You should find that there will not be much vertical movement. Time your shots to hit as close to the centre as possible. It may take a little bit of practice, however this shooting discipline is by far the easiest, it will not take too long to master.

Ring Leader 15
Score 16.80 points or over in the Rings.
As with all the gymnastic events the Rings must be performed on Hard difficulty. What makes the Rings particularly tricky, is when trying to manoeuvre the analog sticks into position. It will take a bit of practice, it is difficult trying to balance both arrows in the correct place. You will need to achieve mainly ‘Excellent’ and ‘Perfect’ with a flawless dismount to break the required points needed.

Should you still have trouble beating the required points, try using slow-mo in Olympic mode to slow down certain aspects of the routine. Click Here for 'Slow-Mo' overview

Sharp Shooter 15
Score a perfect round in Skeet.
Skeet isn’t particularly difficult, however there are eight stations with a total of 25 clays. What makes the achievement difficult is the sheer quantity of clays.

Take the time to practice, learning the trajectory of each clay. Follow the clays slightly a head of their path, so your momentum is with the clay. Let the clay catch up with your crosshair. It is really difficult to shoot the clay, when waiting for it to come to your target. The tricky bit is shooting a pair. Shoot the first clay as early as possible. When you come to the second it will be slowing down, in addition your crosshair will not have to move too far to get into position.

Short Distance Hotshot 15
Run the 200m in under 19.20 seconds.
See ‘Sprint Powerhouse’

Shotput Strongman 15
Throw the Shot over 23.20m.
Unfortunately you are not given much time to build up your power bar. Subsequently this makes it fairly tough to build up adequate speed. You are able to start your power build up before the game says ‘Go’, be prepared to commence rotation of the stick immediately. You don’t have to be exact with the angle, however if you can get as close as you can to 45 degrees, it should be enough.

Should you still have trouble beating the required distance, try using slow-mo in Olympic mode to your increase speed. Click Here for 'Slow-Mo' overview

Springboard Diving Diva 15
Score over 400 points in the 3m Springboard Diving.
You must choose all the hardest dives available in the ‘Statement of Dives’. You are unable to make any errors, and must keep the green ball within the middle of the green segment at all times. It’s best to learn the dives, be smooth as possible as any sudden movements will cost you valuable points. Watch out for the transition into a pike as the ball will go from moving slowly to very fast in short space of time.

The following are the dives which you are required to do:
Inward 3.5 somersault Tuck 3.4
Forward 2.5 somersault 2 twist free 3.2
Forward 3.5 somersault pike 3.1
Backward 2.5 somersault tuck 3.0
Reverse 2.5 somersault pike 3.0

Sprint Powerhouse 15
Run the 100m in under 9.80 seconds.
I suggest attempting this in training, getting a really good start can be the key to beating the time. Therefore if you false start the race will automatically restart, you don’t risk disqualification from a competition. If you get the perfect start your speed bar will be maxed out from the start. To beat the time you have to have maximum speed for the whole distance. Pressing LT slightly before you cross the finish line, it may give you that extra 100th of second you need.

Building up enough speed can be quite tricky and if you are struggling with using the combination of A + B, I suggest waggling the analog stick with the palm of your hand. Dependant on what hand you use it you may find it uncomfortable. Therefore try rotating the controller 90 degrees, it just means you have to waggle the analog stick up and down instead of right to left.

Should you still have trouble beating the required time, try using slow-mo in Olympic mode to maintain top speed. Click Here for 'Slow-Mo' overview

Steady Improver 30
Make 6 consecutively improved jumps in the Long Jump.
You unable to fail a jump, therefore be somewhat careful in not overrunning the takeoff mark. I would suggest not building up any speed for your first two jumps. For the first jump take off early and have an extremely low or high angle to reduce your distance. For your second jump I would take off closer to the board with an approximate 45 degree angle. Then on each run after I would slowly build up speed to get the required distance to beat your previous jumps.

Table Tennis Clean Sweep 15
Win a game in Table Tennis without losing a point.
Although a match is best of three, you only need to win one game, which is the first to eleven points. The easiest way to score a point is to make your opponent go to one side of the table, then hit the ball the opposite side. Also if you serve perfectly you will automatically get a point as your opponent will not be able to return it.

It is possible to do this with a friend online, therefore if you are looking to boost check here.

To The Max 50
Max-out all attributes in Olympic Games Mode.
As you progress through Olympic Games mode, you will be rewarded points by for performing well. The higher your position the more points you will receive. You are then given the opportunity to spend your reward on increasing your attributes. The more events you win the quicker you will be able to complete this. It may take into a second season depending on how many events you win. Each season will take approximately 2-4 hours

Triple Jump Topdog 15
In the Triple Jump clear 18.30m.
Like the Long Jump to pass the required distance, you must meet exact criteria. You must have full speed, ‘Perfect’ hop, step and jump at precisely 45 degrees. Anything short of these requirements will result in the distance not being met.

Should you still have trouble beating the required distance, try using slow-mo in Olympic mode to slow down certain aspects. Click Here for 'Slow-Mo' overview

Unequalled At Uneven Bars 15
Score 17.50 points or over in the Uneven Bars.
You will need to do this on Hard difficulty, otherwise you will not be able to score enough points. There is a little bit of room for error on this discipline. The dismount is important and a ‘Good’ landing will probably be sufficient if you don’t miss any commands and get a ‘Perfects’ a long the way. Be careful when doing a sustained command, if you release it too late it will count as miss. Subsequently it’s better to release it early for fewer marks than none at all.

Should you still have trouble beating the required points, try using slow-mo in Olympic mode to slow down certain aspects of the routine. Click Here for 'Slow-Mo' overview

Untouchable 15
Win gold at Judo without receiving any points or credits against you.
This must be done in a competition, either through online play, Olympic mode or Competition. You will have to fight three opponents in total, to win the gold medal. The easiest way to floor your opponent is once you get a ‘Chance’ double tap Y. This puts your opponent in a choke hold, after that you must alternately tap LT and RT. Although you don’t actually have to make your opponent submit, keeping him in the choke hold for 10 seconds, will be enough to win the bout.


Should you still have trouble beating your opponents, try using slow-mo in Olympic mode to increase the power of your submission. Click Here for 'Slow-Mo' overview

Alternately you can do this online with a friend. Choose a Vs match and you will automatically be put into the final. Therefore if you are looking to boost check here.

Vault Vanquisher 15
Score 17.50 points or over in the Vault.
You must do this on ‘Expert’ difficulty or you will not be able to get enough points, even with a flawless vault. The more speed you have the more time you have to perform your landing, therefore max speed is essential. Also all three button presses are required to be ‘Perfect’. Once you are in the landing stage you need to get the bar into the green by rotating the left analog stick. Anything less will result in a mark that will not be high enough. If you are able to completely fill the landing meter, all your button inputs don’t have to be ‘Perfect’. Although it is extremely tough to manage this, as you are not given much time.

Should you still have trouble beating the required points, try using slow-mo in Olympic mode to maximise your speed, and slow down the landing stage. Click Here for 'Slow-Mo' overview

Olympic Mode Slow-mo

If you’re finding it hard to maintain or build up enough speed or you require a certain aspect to be slowed down, utilise the slow-mo function in Olympic mode. Continue into your second season, your attributes will be maxed; therefore there will be no disadvantage to you. Simply activate and deactivate slow-mo by pressing LB or RB. If you are trying to unlock any achievements and you fail simply abandon Olympic mode and reload your save to attempt again.

While in slow-mo mode it takes a lot less energy to achieve maximum speed. This is ideal for events with short run ups like Pole Vault, Vault and Shot Put.

It's also practical to use slow-mo during events such as sprinting and swimming. If you’re starting to lose your speed, turn on slow-mo for a few seconds to give that boost back up to full power.

Also it's ideal for fast parts of gymnastic events as it slows everything down. This in turn gives you adequate time, to achieve those perfect button commands.

Oh let me guess your one of these people that only wants to take from the community and not give back. Why don't you do something for the site and write the guide? Instead of being quick to frown upon the guide read the first sentance, also take a look at the date and time of the first post.

As no one else has decided to write it I took the initiative. Unfortunately for you it takes time and I've got a job and a life. I did the formatting this morning and I will start to populate the guide this evening.

Maybe you choose your words more carefully. Your first post was purely a spam post which showed you had taken no thought or consideration in what you were writing. It also showed you hadn't even taken the time to read the first sentance!

See now your assuming regarding that I don't have all the info. Have you heard of any of the expressions regarding making assumptions? Maybe you should google them.

How have I released an achievement guide? This thread is merely something I am working on. It's not deemed released until the review team have given it the go ahead. You will know when it's released as it will be stickied and on the main site.

Finally if someone brings out an acheivement guide before me then great...hopefully it's a really good piece of work and it will help a lot of people. If not then I will continue to work on mine.

a little help for the guide

I now have 40/50 achievements so if you want to use some of the advice I give below in your guide then feel free

- Triple Jump: you need perfection here also like Long Jump - full power locked, perfect board and step phase then 45 degrees (anything of these three not 'maxed' will lead to less than 18:30 from what I have seen)

- Judo: I found this quite easy thanks to the choke hold giving me ippon. You need to do competition mode and win three boughts in a row without your opponent scoring anything or even putting you in a hold which you escape from (I escaped once and beat him, he had no points, but no achievement). When you see the arrow, tap the analogue a few times in that direction until you get a 'chance' then hit yellow twice - this puts him in a choke hold which you must hit RT LT alternately to get the ippon. Rinse and repeat.

- 800m / 1500m: you can do these by running from the front, but you need your power maxed most of the way which is a bit trickier when you are tired (pause the game after 3/4 of a lap and rest and you will be fine). Alternately you can race online and slipstream an opponent who is running all out and take it in turns, works fine.

- cycling: pause the game after every 5 laps or so for a rest in order to maintain 'max' speed and you should get the necessary time [not rocket science I know!] (also, not for the achievement but in the final, overtaking the COM will end the race in a couple of laps!)

I'm sorry for sounding like a dick but there is 50 achievements in the game you have got descriptions for only 5.

You also only have 19 achievements yourself, how can you expect to write a guide for a game when you have less than half of the achievements.

I would suggest writing a full guide then posting it rather than doing a list of achievement tiles and adding to as and when you can

Keep working on the guide and send me a PM when you have it mostly completed and I'll unlock the thread for you to edit. No sense in having a Guide thread with only a few descriptions. Good work so far, but try to get it nearly finished before making the thread

Your welcome. Unfortunately I've only got the drum set for Rock Band and I forgot to tell my brother to bring his controller round when he came to stay for the weekend so I was one controller short.

I had unlocked a lot of achievements on my brothers account and my hand isn't really up to scratch to attempt some of them at the moment on my profile. I'm in no rush anyway!

Good suggestion, the guide was going to be complete bar two or three acheivements that evening. As this forum is fairly quiet didn't think it would be a problem to get the template up and running before I got home from work. No harm done though, all good in the end

Thanks for the info mate, you will deservedly get the credit if the guide gets published. Obviously if it's considered toilet you can get the credit for that too

Nice guide, it's a big help, cheers. I have a question about the Hardcore Olympian though, does it have to be done in one go, i.e. not quitting out and coming back to it later? Seems a bit of an ask.

Yes has to be in one session and in your first season.

Hi,

Just to add some input and sorry if it is already been mentioned.

For Back to back glory, you can actually choose 1 event and repeat it over and over again for 5 times instead of choosing 5 different events.

I got mine unlocked doing the 50m freestyle.
