If you are familiar with the NFS: Undercover WP7 game that is also out on the marketplace, then you will be familiar with this game. The controls can be a bit touchy, so I recommend going to the game settings and turning the sensitivity right down, this will make the cars a lot easier to handle. There are no missable achievements in the game. However, you may miss the achievements Maximum Overdrive and Full Garage while playing through the game's story, but you can earn more XP through Quickplay if you miss them.
Firstly I recommend you go for Clean Run, Cop Out and Gear Head as soon as you unlock those race types. It is much easier to get the achievements early on when the difficulty is still quite easy. They are not hard to get, but much less frustrating early on. You unlock cars as you progress in levels, and your levels go up from earning XP. XP can be acquired through doing certain things in the race, like speeding, drifting, jumping and so on. Winning the race will also give you an XP bonus. If by the end of the campaign you have not reached level 20 and unlocked all the cars, I recommend doing Quickplay Drag Races, as they are the easiest and quickest source of XP.
Really quite an easy game once you get used to the controls, it should not be too difficult to unlock all the achievements.

|Own the Downtown district.|
Story related, cannot be missed. This will unlock upon completing your last race in the Downtown District.
|Avoid all traffic cars in a Time Trial.|
Best to do this early on in the campaign when the difficulty is still quite easy. You need to avoid all traffic whilst still winning the race, hitting walls is perfectly ok though, so don't be afraid to hug the wall in tight areas. Drive cautiously, but not too slow, and you should still win the race.
|Own the Beachfront district.|
Story related, cannot be missed. This will unlock upon completing your last race in the Beachfront District.
|Win a Cop Chase wihout using nitro.|
Really quite simple, just race a clean race, avoid traffic and try not to let the police pass you. If the police do get in front of you, passing them shouldn't be too hard, just don't let them sit in front of you. Again, best done in the early levels.
|Complete Story Mode, owning entire L.A.|
Story related, cannot be missed. This will unlock upon completing your last race in the Beachfront District. You will get this upon completing the game.
|Unlock all cars.|
This is unlocked upon hitting level 20, which unlocks your final car. If you have not unlocked this by the time you've finished the campaign, then simply use Quickplay to do a couple more races until you acquire level 20. Drag races are easy and quick, so doing these is recommend for easy XP.
|Win a Drag Race having perfect shifts only.|
To get a perfect shift, you need to change gears when the arrow on your speedometer turns light green. Do this through every gear and win the race to unlock the achievement. Make sure to shoot your nitrous as soon as your in last gear to assure you win the race. Again, best done in the early levels.
|Own the Docks district.|
Story related, cannot be missed. This will unlock upon completing your last race in the Docks District.
|Reach level 20.|
If you have not unlocked this by the time you've finished the campaign, then simply use Quickplay to do a couple more races until you acquire level 20. Drag races are easy and quick, so doing these is recommened for easy XP.
|Cross the finish line by using nitro.|
Very simple to unlock. Make sure you save some nitrous for the end of the race, and when you see the three green flags (or the green line on your mini map), shoot your nitrous so that it carries you across the line.
