Question with this one. Can you start a new game and then only have the 14 or does it have to be done on the same save? I only need 3 more golds. for the achievemnet.
Thanks

Anybody who got the achievement for ten gold medals without ten gold medals is a liar and a hacker.

Why is this game so full of shit?

im fucking fuming right now trying to get these challenges done. its stupidly impossible, with these shitty controls and physics.

im trying to LB + B boost, not LB and fucking force push u awful game, learn my fucking button pushes game.

and its not fair when u get shot, then shot at 3 more times becasue the first shot left u stunned. fucking game, i hate these developers, and i was a huge star wars fan, but lucasarts can fucking suck it until they bring us the battlefront 3 were so desparately need!

fuck these stupid developers who are completely ignorant and lazy to make such an awful game. what the hell were they thinking? this is not how u make a game morons. i need to be one of those guys making these games because i understand how they should be made.

5 hour story and stupid, not-fun-at-all challenges? who is the douchebag i can go punch the living daylights out of to have come up with that idea?

/rant. i want my money back. and i got the collector's edition. fuck. me.

Somebody needs to take some anger management classes, if they act this way over something so trivial as a video game. Seriously, I would hate to be in your girlfriend's shoes after making a wrong turn on the way to a party.

do u not get the feeling that these developers dont care about the game, and dont actually play the game they just made?

do they not understand how stupid they made it, especially the challenges? and whats with the 5 hour campaign?

we need someone to actually ask them these direct questions, and get an actual, honest repsonse from them. surely they know the flaws of their game, but are they gonna actually acknowledge that fact?

I get the feeling that Haden Blackman cared very much for the series he put a lot of effort into, though I'm not going to lie when I admit I question how much influence he had on this installment.

The length of a campaign really makes no difference to me, and the challenges, while by no means easy, weren't that much of a let down for me. Having bought the Collector's Edition myself, though (admittedly, for the flash drive), I understand your frustration. I know I come off as a dick, but I do understand where you're coming from. However... I'm hoping, and feeling pretty confident that, everything will be made right again if and when the third installment is released.

POSSIBLE SPOILERS:

The game is a lot of fun imo. I mean, the game is shorter than it's predecessor however there seems to be less lingering/exploring and a lot of action. Not to mention the cutscenes are great as is the final fight with Vader. Starkiller was full of raging emotion going into that final fight and it showed, even on Unleashed difficulty (health drain crystal - green and the black crystal ftw... he got demolished with every strike as I gained back health as I smashed him into the electricity.

The endings were pretty extreme in the Light Side/Dark Side paths respectively. Meaning, the light side ending was very good as the dark side ending was very dark, not to mention left you with a few WTF's that were pretty cool. However, you rarely see great endings in these type of games anymore so it was a breath of fresh air to see the Light Side ending work out so nicely.

I think the controls were spot on (once you adjust to them).. the only times the controls were not spot on.. or should I say the mechanics, is during some trials. For example, the combat trial... it wasn't fun completing the combo perfectly and seeing the motions but because the droid would fly off the edge and another spawn it would sometimes cancel the on-screen prompts thus not giving credit. They shouldn't hold you back in trials, if you are fast enough to keep going and know your stuff.. you should be able to complete it as if you were in-game. My combos have not broken in-game through 3 play-throughs. When you press the right buttons, the magic happens on-screen. However, it wasn't a bad trial.. just a bit underdeveloped in the sense I mentioned but to be honest I could care less as I had a lot of fun in the story. Some sort of co-op instead in a future title would be great if they could implement it properly. After getting my achievements for the trials, I probably won't replay them as they weren't that fun (they're good for one play-through), however a co-op element of some sort could potentially add a lot of replay value after going through the story completely.

Starkiller owns... not to mention that actor did a great job to convey where his mind was and what he was feeling.. especially towards the end of the game and in the Light Side ending.

Thanks for posting those videos, they saved my frustration level a ton! I was able to do the first challenge in 59 or so and got gold/platinum on the rest!

If you're asking if you can get gold without leveling up the saber attacks, yes I believe so. But you cannot hit platinum times until you unlock all the saber combos.

Try putting both sabers to defensive ones, helped me out a lot but wasn't sure if that was a placebo effect

I guess the best you can do is practice, and watch any YouTube videos if you have the patience to memorize their behaviour and actions.

EASY Retriever Trial Method

You do NOT need to go on a single moving platform except one. Right from the beginning, press dash (LB) twice instantly. You will now be on the first platform. Look at the stationary platform to your right. Press Dash right at end of ledge, then Jump, then Dash, then boost. (LB+A+LB+B). You will make the jump if done properly. Look at next Stationary Platform to your left. Do the same thing. Now you need to jump on one of the moving platforms (either one). Just jump and dash, or dash, jump, dash. Then Dash jump to the holocron. Do the same thing back. Jump on a moving platform, then jump on the stationary platform. Now do the same thing you did before to get back. Using the Dash, Jump, Dash, boost technique.

I got 30 seconds. Ranked 22 of the world currently. You only need 40 seconds or lower for Platinum.

But this is the easiest trial out of all of them

Right as you press the last X out of the first set (fourth one), wait until he does a 360. Right when he is near the end of his 360, press x,x,x,x. Just try to get the feel of the 360. Easy

Thanks Venom.
I figured it out.

The best I've done is 53.4 seconds. this game

Screw you Lucas Arts, I will never rent or buy another game from you again.
This laggy piece of crap is annoying. Every time I'm doing well I have to worry about double tapping a button thanks to your horrible coding skills.

What? This method wasn't easy because of the goddamn timing of the boost and the fact that sometimes the next platform seemed to be so far away...
Despite my frustation though I still somehow managed to be ranked 26th at the moment I completed it the last time.

Well I finally beat that crappy challenge.

I'd suggest 2 things:
-Not attacking the drone (make laps around edge of circle)
-Not button mashing

The calmer you press the buttons, the less likely you are to screw up, and you get into a rhythm for the last 3 moves. I fell off one attempt and beat it with 54-something seconds to go, but the next attempt I beat it at 59 seconds.

Good riddance.

Good suggestions and glad to hear that you did it. I still feel that it is better to do the first Combat Challenge while your lightsaber is still at level 1 and not upgraded. That way, there are less combos to do and you won't have to complete the tricky combos at the end.
After completing, then upgrade your saber at will.

The timing? There is no timing invlove, you just press the buttons. Except the Dash boost, you have to press at the right time at the end of the dash. As for the platform being so far away. Yes it is, but you should have more than enough space to make it. Take your time to practice, and once u got it down, go full out. Once i figured it out, it literally took me 3 times.

Brilliant! Thank you so much for the tip, I just got my platinum medal.

What I'm stuck on now is both the Deflector challenge and the Cloning Spire Challenge. Deflector has gotten me close to breaking my controller. Know any tips for these two challenges? I tried to follow the guide, but I still can't figure out how to wrap these damn challenges up.

Grab and throw the projectiles back at the walkers as quickly as possible. It's faster, safer, and more efficient than actually deflecting.

That worked so well that it got me the achievement. And it did work better with projectiles. All I need to do now is beat the game on Unleashed and its done. Thanks for your help.

Hello All,

This post is geared toward anyone who bothered trying to attain Platinum on every challenge.
I've managed to get platinum on every Challenge but 2. Which are the "scout trooper trial" and the "trial of agility" (exclusive to collector's the edition).

The margin of error seems so minimal for the STT that it nearly seems impossible. My best time for it is 33.602, but under 30 seems ludicrous.

As for the TOA my best time is 10.094 and Plat is 10.00.

Does anyone have any tips or suggestions to improve my time and attain Plat?

And for anyone who would like to say "whats the point all you need is Gold", I now have my full 1k but I feel the game was so short that completing platinum on these challenges will be the only way for me to get my full dollars worth.

Thanks in advance,

Cheers
