Path of Destruction is the sequel to 2007's eponymous Monster Jam game. This game is notoriously simpler and is meant for a younger audience. Diehard Monster Jam fans may be let down by the virtually nonexistent difficulty, but those looking for a quick gamerscore fix need to look no further.
Begin your game by picking a truck and sticking with it for at least 20 levels before you decide to get creative and change trucks (for the Biggest Fan achievement). After you get that achievement you're free to experiment with other trucks and create your own, but from this point on focus on completing every single event with a gold medal. The object of the game is pretty simple, complete events. That's it. Once you do this, it's time for the "Hard" playthrough.
For this mini-playthrough all you need to do is complete 20 different events on "Hard" mode (for Tough and Pro Driver achievements). The events are literally no harder now than they were the first time, and this step should be a breeze while also letting you get some additional stunts to go toward the cumulative achievements for them. Once you complete 20 rounds it's time for the clean up phase.
After you attain a gold in every event, have completed 20 Hard events, and have unlocked everything it's time to look at the achievements. What are you missing? The easiest achievements to miss are the ones that require you to perform X number of stunts, so it's time to grind for these. If you are missing any of the customization achievements you can knock those out, and if you're missing any of the uncategorized Secret achievements you can knock those out relatively fast as well.
In summary the game is a very easy 1000/1000 even for those who aren't too familiar with monster trucks or racing games in general. PoD is a step back from the more in-depth 2007 title mostly so that it would be easier for kids to enjoy playing it, but in the process alienated their older fans. PoD probably isn't worth a purchase, but it's definitely worth sticking in your GameFly queue to get some easy points.
I am bad about checking every game forum I post in. If you have a question about an achievement guide I have written please PM me about it if I "ignore" your question. Thanks!!
Need boosting on lots of random games (Vigilante 8, E.W. Jim, Gauntlet, Scrap Metal, etc) - I've got lots of arcade games, if you need boosting in a particular game just ask! My GT is "Dracophile", shoot me a message anytime!
