Cool

Uhm, I have a slight addition to make to Easy/Medium/Hard achievements.

Upgrade Vehicles via Easy, level 1 and then proceed onto Medium/hard and locate the cannons and rockets. Rockets take a little aiming but deal massive damage - Cannon is also a HUGE bonus because for some reason the AI seems to get stunned when it gets hit with it. Using both also adds towards the Whammy achievement.

EDIT: I should point out the stunning only occurs at 2x-3x charge, sorry forget that earlier

The information provided for Alien Contact is insufficient to help everybody get the alien icons. A separate, more detailed directory of locations is really necessary to call the guide complete.

Ive got 200/200 points and i realy think more detailed is not nesessary because if you just destroy !everything! you find them all in about 10-20 min/map. But if you cant find one on a spec. map just tell me. some locations are harder to find but as i said just keep destroying.

i would rate it a 6/10 for difficulty some achievements are hard it would probs take you 6-8 hours to beat everything and get all the achievements if you have played before. If not I would say around 10 hours

Not counting the time I spent fiddling around getting used to the new XBLA port and its differences from the PlayStation versions, it only took me about 4 to 5 hours to unlock all of the achievements, with the exception of the Online one. I tend to never get those because much like with Marble Blast and Sonic the Hedgehog, I'm very good at it and people either leave halfway through or I get bad feedback because they suck at the game.

Just wanted to add to the search for aliens:

You can go into free-roam mode by yourself and destroy everything without other cars trying to destroy you, then you can leave once all 20 are collected.
It makes it a lot easier

Thanks for this guide. The achievements are pretty self-explanatory. Only thing I don't know about this game is the Salvage points. Do they automatically upgrade your car, or do you need to do that yourself?
