Is it realy that hard? Argh...after Need for Speed Hot Pursuit i hope i never play crazy time challenges again.

After all i think you can even beat the time (less than 0.45.000). Youtube? Hope you find help.

I have this game on preorder but I'm actually starting to think I don't want to play it because of these platinum medals. Are they time based? Because I cannot stand time trial achievements.

It sucks because I loved the first 2 games but I really don't want to go through with this platinum bullshit. I'm not very good at racing games either...

How hard are these platinum things? Seriously?

Don't contemplate buying the game just because of achievements. The game looks to be really solid and has consistently gotten scores of 9/10 and 9.5/10, which warrants a day one buy in my book. I always prioritize a game's quality over the achievement list, even though I like getting achievements.

got that on my 10th try or so, you have to get perfect in the spin zone, drift close underneath the trailers and the donut-drifts you have to start from diferent sides, drift in from the right the first one and the second one from the left, you also should get them as well as possible, after 3/4 the donut should be complete i got a endtime of 43,XX seconds

good luck dude, i hate the platinmedals xD

any good adwise how to get the platinmedal on the drift tutorial? you have to get 145000 Points in 60 seconds...impossible -.-* best i got was 130000 with pure luck, but the most time i get something about 110000...

not trying to be cocky, but i am really good at this game and believe i will get platinum with a little bit of a challenge. i have played DiRT 2 for at least 200 hours and will be able to get almost all achievements.

I'll be making video guides for all the platinum challenges as I go tomorrow.

I will post an achievement guide with all the information probably by this friday. Not sure if you (or anyone here) is willing to wait, but it'll be there eventually.

Angry Platinum wtf!!!

Ok, now i know what you mean!

What the f*** are these medals? I donīt even get the platinum medal in the ghymkana tutorial!!!

I try over 1 our to destroy these yellow pops and failed epic. I try this over 50 times i think. After Need for Speed Hot Pursuit i never play such hard challenges. The car is simply overpowerd, even on easy with all helps on it breaks out the curse. I canīt handle a beast like that in such a small "map" and the drift around the pipes makes me crazy

Every time i hear this stupid &/$%§$ voice of the commentary that i get gold. Hahaha....great you &$%&§!!!

The points are 13 000 for gold and 20 000 for platinum??? Thats 7000 difference! I got it 3 times that i only miss one yellow pop. My controller fly away...

I give it up with the achivement already, i get gold and done. This is not worth my limited freetime in any case. This is a great game, but why i must play such a "Tony-Hawk-Rally-Stunt" shit? See you on the track guyīs...wish you the best...

Mate, the tutorial ones are actually quite easy and you shouldn't have all the assist on because the computer tries interfering to much turn all assists off except for ABS. You should try some of the later platinums lol.

Heres a LINK to the PS3trophies guide that has videos of the gymkhana tutorial platinums there a great set of videos, and helped me find the right racing lines on them.

Credits for the videos to Budje Rulezzzzzz

I have always enjoyed the Dirt game series, and this one is just as good as the other two, but those platinum Chievos are a pain in the ARSE IMO.

racing wheel + cockpit/helmet camera.

i am hating the plats on gymkhana they are trully shite, i wanted a racing game and i get this yeah its an ok distraction but the plats are way to hard im stuck on the tutourial getting 145,000 for drifting through hoops been doing it for an hour and cant better 130,000 ruining the game for me at the moment, the racing though is fantastic they need to get rid of ken block and his so called inovations, and get back to what dirt was all about i felt dirt 2 the mix bang on.

I can understand people's frustration with the achievements but to hear that people are considering not getting the game because of it? Man that is nothing but your loss, this game is awesome.
