Welcome to Race Driver: GRID, the newest addition to the TOCA racing series. This game blends various driving types together all in one game and does a great job at, this includes, GT Super sports, drifting, touge, open wheel and even demolition derby as well as the glorious 24 Hours of Le Mans. The game features a great variant of cars to make each event perfect which are set over three regions; United States, Europe & Japan. GRID also introduces the famous Flashback feature and is heavily focused on racing for teams/contracts.

Gotta Drive 'Em All
First off, I will start with this achievement as with the latest patch, it has made this achievement permanently unobtainable through a glitch in the games car count, but there is still a way to unlock it. Follow the link below to see how, you will need a USB and will be playing around with your save file. Link

GRID World
In the games primary mode, you will end up reaching the top of both the driver and team leaderboards, you will constantly be hiring new and better teammates as you unlock them, you will need to win every event thus achieve all the trophy's and you will buy and sell constantly to keep on top of credits.

Miscellaneous
The game has more miscellaneous achievements than any other type, most of them being fairly straight forward as they will naturally come through just playing the game and progression through the GRID's Career (GRID World.)
Achievements include; Get a car airborne for 1 second, finish the cross line in reverse and win, be involved in a 10 car pile-up, reach 200mph, lap an opponent, buy a car, use flashback, destroy your car, race at ever location, win various types of events etc. Some of these can only be unlocked in GRID World, others in Race day and multiplayer but they are all specified in the description.

Difficult Misc
These achievements are not necessarily "hard" but are slightly more difficult compared to the others and a few of these may give the average racer some trouble and you will have to go out of your way to get some of these so the following may require some extra effort and I'll provide tips.

-Drift your car for 5 seconds - First practice and master drifting, then pick a muscle car on one of the Yokohama tracks in Freestyle Drift within Race Day mode and start a drift around the huge bends that go around the corners, you'll have this within a few attempts at most.

-Get a 50x Drift Multiplier - This is all about keeping the combo going until you hit 50, choose the same setting as before but here you want to switch around corners constantly to keep your combo going and keep those drifts consistent.

-Win a Touge event on 5 star difficulty level - This can be tough as you are racing on narrow corners, up and downhill but there is one event that can be won quite easily after a few attempts of learning the track. Go into Race Day and Race Day, select the Nissan Skyline GT-R on Mount Haruna, Foothills and this will be the easiest set up to win this on Extreme.

-Complete a lap of Okatama Grand Circuit in under 90 seconds - This is by far the most difficult achievement in the game and unless you're a an experienced racer, this will take a lot of practice but is still doable. Apart from watching videos to get an idea on how to beat the track in 1:30, it is also ideal to choose the Audi R10, some people may find it easier to use the Mazda 787B depending on your driving, whatever suits you best. You have to do this in GRID World, so after choosing your car pick test mode and give it some solid attempts.

Multiplayer

You need to win 5 races for 2 of the achievements, you can create a custom race and have a friend join and trade wins. The other multiplayer achievement is to beat a developer or anyone who has beaten one. This of course is a viral achievement and by now everyone will have. The final two achievements are to reach the rank of Elite (1200 points) & Legend (2000 points.)

The quickest way to reach 2000 points is to trade wins with a friend in ranked matches by setting the game to Japan, Downhill Drift Festival. You need to set the race length, damage and collisions on for maximum points, this is providing you do not damage your car, crash or hit anything. Seeing as the track is one, sort downhill route, you will not have any trouble. Check the Achievement Trading Thread to find people to trade wins with.

Thanks for reading.

Nice, was thinking of renting this and it's nice to see that I can get the online achievements too as I wasn't sure! Will be adding this to the rental list now.

You know if one person looks at this road map then I'm glad I made it! Yeah definitely pick it up for the price you can get it today. Personally one of the best all round racers on the 360.

I actually bought it today, GAME were doing 2 for 10 so picked this up amongst a couple of others. I can't seem to get it for a fiver or less on eBay, so why not?

And yeah thanks, will use this so I can get the 1000G hopefully!
