Platinum champ is impossible.

I have yet to see anyone complete this game with all Platinums. Sure some of us got Platinum Medals or even Trophies, but completing the game on Platinum is very unrealistic. I would like to see someone achieve this.

Re: Platinum champ is impossible.

I'm convinced ST TheKing is multiple people playing on one gamertag.

Re: Platinum champ is impossible.

Nah I know St TheKing personally(I'm like the sh!t at Quake 4 and Quake 4 has some hard to unlock achievements so he likes to play with the pwnerers lol) he is one person he plays less than most people but I think he plays and nights and weekends he has a social life because hes like o i got to go to a party or something like that lol.

Re: Platinum champ is impossible.

Near the point at completing the game with Gold Medals, and I must say Im chuffed to nuts Ive gotten that far really! Taken me almost 40 hours to get to this point and I doubt I will ever get all the plats. Combination of not enough time and not enough patience! There are a few out there with the plats achievement though.

Re: Platinum champ is impossible.

youve just got to be good at driving games and have the patience. for me personally, getting the game on silver was enough, and iv got 1 gold and 2 platinum trophies to know that i and do it. (1 of the platinum is the ring series ;D)

Re: Platinum champ is impossible.

I know some people with the game finished on Platinum, but most of them played PGR2 a lot so they know the Gameplay very well.

Re: Platinum champ is impossible.

trust me, its tough! even on Gold. I find that its not always the best all-round cars that get you through at the fastest time. I had to experiment with the Concept Cars, the F50 GT and the F1 McLaren. A few knocks in the barriers and you're done for! lol

Re: Platinum champ is impossible.

im not saying its not hard, i reckonyou can make maybe 2 mistakes or take 2 knocks a race tops, like you say. but its certainly not impossible. took me about 5 goes to win on each of the ring circuits on platinum. the thing you have to do is learn the courses

Re: Platinum champ is impossible.

Re: Platinum champ is impossible.

I know, but they should have made the laps shorter so it's less hard to remember which corner is next.

Re: Platinum champ is impossible.

If you're reffering to Nürburgring Nordschleife, I've been an F1 and Le Mans fan all my life and I've watched countless races on that course, not to mention played it so I pretty much have it memorized. It's not hard to memorize the turns to a course. Much the same sence of remembering the quickest route to school or your home. It's all about repetition.

Re: Platinum champ is impossible.

the Ring tends to be better known by teh Europeans, as like you say F1 etc being shown on Tv, where as f1 tends not to be watched much in he States.

Plus we can pop over and drive round it ;D ;D

Re: Platinum champ is impossible.

yeah, but F1s more popular in Europe than the USA- they tend to like NASCAR (dont get the fascination, but hey)

Meeting Montoyas cool thMet him and Ralph Schumacher at williams a few years back

Re: Platinum champ is impossible.

It was a bit of a strange meeting, I was justing eating in the McDonalds when he walked in. I said he looked like Montoya because of the McLaren clothes and stuff, because I didn't recognize him yet. But after a few minutes some fans asked his autograph so I was sure it was him ;D

Yes, I am having problems but it's not by far impossible. But I play every racing game that hits the market (or try to) so I have much experience with the general conept of the physics engine they use. But even then, i still know plenty of people that are quite capable of the same thing.

If you don't mind me going off topic, but where exactly did you go to download the PGR 100 Gamer Pic? I'm having serious trouble finding it...
