Introduction:
Welcome to the achievement guide and roadmap for Summer Athletics 2009. Anybody who has played the previous years version (simply entitled "Summer Athletics"), will see almost no differences between the two, except a couple of new events. The mechanics are identical, as are the graphics, the sound effects, and almost every aspect of the game. On the plus side, the game has an easy bunch of achievements, although expect sore wrists and fingers, as this is an old school athletics game in essence.


Step 1:
Start off by creating a male and female character a quick 5, then select Career, and play through. There are three career stages, and you will have to finish top after all events in a particular career to progress to the next. After every event, win or lose you will get to add stat points. Use these as you will, but eventually you will have 100 in all 5 stats, and the associated achievements will net you 4 achievements for 230. You will get 100 for completing the career and will most likely have gotten some of the other achievements on the way.

Step 2:
Now we will go through each of the separate competitions. Completing all of them is easy as you can select the difficulty (easy being the setting of choice). For the last competition - the custom cup, select one sport from each discipline. You will unlock 3 achievements for 70

Step 3:
Next we will complete the Berlin Cup with an athlete of both sexes. The Berlin Cup is competition over 9 days, which has qualifying rounds for each final. On your first play, make sure you qualify for each final, then win the competition. On your second play with the other sex, just make sure you win over all. 3 achievements for 170will be unlocked when this is done.

Mop Up:
There will most likely be a bunch of miscellaneous achievements left when you get this far. Go in to the individual event to get these. If the achievement allows for Arcade mode, that should help you. If you still need silver or bronze medals, just do a 100m sprint and pace yourself to guarantee a position. You will almost definitely need some records for certain events. This will require time and practice, but keep at it and you should get them all!

Conclusion:
This is by no means a great game, and can get hard on your hands and arms at times, especially the swimming events. It has an easy achievement list that shouldn't give you too much problems, although the shooting events are a bitch. You will be glad when this is finished!

[x360a would like to thank Corrupt x360a for this Roadmap]



CREATOR I5
CREATE A MALE AND A FEMALE CHARACTER. 

When you start your career, you will have to create a character. Once you have created one, simply go back and start again, creating the other sex and this will unlock.

COULDN'T CARE LESS20
GET MORE THAN 75 POINTS AT ARCHERY, THEN DESTROY THE SCOREBOARD (PURE MODE, SINGLE PLAYER). 

Choose 70m Compound for this. You have much more time to get your shot lined up. Hopefully you will have less wind to deal with and get lucky. If you have more than 75 after your 8th shot, aim low at the score board and hit it. Can be unlocked in any single player game type (not arcade).

CREATOR II15
CREATE A CUSTOM COMPETITION WITH AT LEAST ONE DISCIPLINE OF EACH SPORT AND WIN IT. 

In competitions, the last event is custom competition. Create a tournement with one event from the following disciplines:
 

  • Sprint
  • Middle Distance
  • Throwing
  • Jumping
  • Archery
  • Swimming
  • Diving
  • Cycling
  • Shooting

Set the difficulty to easy and win the competition.

BREAKING THE RULES5
PERFORM A FALSE START, GET A TIMEOUT AND GET DISQUALIFIED IN SINGLE PLAYER. 

Go into an individual event of 100 or 200m sprint. First time, do two false starts (press LT early), then restart. This time just sit there to get a timeout.

SHAKY VICTORY10
KNOCK OVER FIVE HURDLES IN A 110M HURDLES RACE AND WIN IN SINGLE PLAYER AT MEDIUM DIFFICULTY. 

Go into individual event and choose 110m Hurdles. Make sure the difficulty is on medium. If you go flat out without even jumping you could probably still win, but make sure you knock over at least five. It may be easier to plough through the first five and then jump the rest to ensure victory. 

EGOIST10
WIN A TEAM PURSUIT RACE AT CYCLING WITHOUT SWITCHING RIDERS IN SINGLE PLAYER. 

Start a Team Pursuit Race in single event, and set the difficulty to easy. Keep at a steady pace of around 48 km/h and just don't switch rider. The AI should not come close. Can be unlocked in any single player game mode.

HANGER-ON5
RUN IN SOMEONE'S SLIPSTREAM FOR TWO MINUTES IN A MIDDLE DISTANCE RACE AND WIN IN SINGLE PLAYER. 

Select individual event at 1500m, and easy difficulty. From the start, catch up with and slot yourself behind the leader. Do not mover from behind him, even if another runner overtakes you both. Stay with him until the sprint at the end, then just race off at win. You will have spent way more than 2 minutes in his slipstream. Can be unlocked in any single player game mode.

STEADY HAND10
PERFORM THREE PERFECT GRABS IN ONE RACE AT SWIMMING IN SINGLE PLAYER. 

This can only be done in the 4x100 medley. You will perform a grab at the end of each leg. Your grab needs to be between 90-100 for perfect. This is best done in single event, as you can just restart if you mess one up. Can be unlocked in any single player game mode.

TURNS OF THE CENTURY10
PERFORM THREE PERFECT TURNS IN ONE RACE AT SWIMMING IN SINGLE PLAYER. 

Select either 200m Butterfly or 4x100 medley. You need to perform 3 perfect turns, which is stopping between 90-100. Do this three times in one race for this one. This is easier in single event as you can just restart if you mess up. Can be unlocked in any single player game mode.

PERFECTIONIST II10
PERFORM A PERFECT RUN-UP AND A PERFECT TAKE OFF IN POLE VAULT IN SINGLE PLAYER. 

Perfect run up is easy enough, and it is pretty hard not to get a perfect take off. Just make sure you release when you are at the top of your jump. You should get this first time. Can be unlocked in any single player game mode.

PERFECTIONIST I10
PERFORM A PERFECT START, FLIGHT AND ENTRY WITHIN ONE ATTEMPT AT DIVING IN SINGLE PLAYER. 

This is the toughest of the "Perfectionist" achievements. The perfect start is hitting the reticule perfectly every time in the first part, hitting all the directions perfectly in the second, and not making a splash on entry. You can try changing the mode in single event to Arcade which should give you more leeway and slow down things. Can be unlocked in any single player game mode.

BOUNCY VICTORY5
JUMP OVER ALL HURDLES IN A 110M HURDLES RACE AND WIN IN SINGLE PLAYER. 

Just don't knock any hurdles down. It doesn't matter if you clip them, just don't knock any of them over. Can be unlocked in any single player game mode.

PERFECTIONIST III10
PERFORM THREE PERFECT JUMPS IN A TRIPLE JUMP AND CLEAR 18.20M IN SINGLE PLAYER. 

This will require a perfect run up to get the pace to clear the distance. You will need perfect stats if playing in your career. It seems easier to watch your characters feet than watch the progress bar. Hit everything perfectly and this will unlock. Can be unlocked in any single player game mode.

PERFECTIONIST IV10
AT HIGH JUMP, RUN UP WITH PERFECT STEPS ONLY AND CLEAR A HEIGHT OF 2.40M IN SINGLE PLAYER. 

Go into single event and high jump. Set the height at 2.40m, and attempt this. If you don't make it on your third attempt, just restart. You will need to hit every step perfect, so you will need to get your timing perfect. This will take a few goes to get right, but essentially you need to hit just after the circle drops in the reticule. Can be unlocked in any single player game mode.

PERFECT TIMING10
THROW WITH PERFECT TIMING IN ALL THROWING EVENTS IN SINGLE PLAYER. 

In all throwing events, release LT just before the blue power indicator disappears. You will play through each throwing event multiple times, so this should come pretty easily. If you have trouble, load up the individual events to practice.

MARKSMAN15
WIN A GOLD MEDAL IN ALL ARCHERY AND SKEET SHOOTING EVENTS IN SINGLE PLAYER. 

You should get this while playing all the competitions on Easy difficulty. You will only need a reasonable score in archery and to hit a few skeet in shooting to get golds. If you don't have them after doing the competitions, go into the individual events. Unfortunately there is no way to check which events you have or do not have gold on.

FLY LIKE AN EAGLE15
WIN A GOLD MEDAL IN ALL THROWING EVENTS IN SINGLE PLAYER. 

You should get this while playing all the competitions on Easy difficulty. You will only need to throw averagely to beat the AI. If you don't have them after doing the competitions, go into the individual events. Unfortunately there is no way to check which events you have or do not have gold on.

WHEELS OF FORTUNE15
WIN A GOLD MEDAL IN ALL CYCLING EVENTS IN SINGLE PLAYER. 

You should have this after finishing the career and the Easy difficulty competitions. If not, just go into individual events to get gold on them. Remember with cycling, keeping stamina is the key and not burning all energy too fast. Unfortunately there is no way to check which events you have or do not have gold on.

DOLPHIN20
WIN A GOLD MEDAL IN ALL SWIMMING AND DIVING EVENTS IN SINGLE PLAYER. 

You should get this while playing all the competitions on Easy difficulty. You don't have to swim particularly fast to beat the AI, just remember it is all about your rhythm on the thumbsticks. Watch the bar at the bottom to see how quickly you should be rotating and speed up slowly to your top speed. If you don't have them after doing the competitions, go into the individual events. Unfortunately there is no way to check which events you have or do not have gold on.

CHEETAH20
WIN A GOLD MEDAL IN ALL RUNNING EVENTS IN SINGLE PLAYER. 

You should get this while playing all the competitions on Easy difficulty. The sprints are simple, you don't even need to go fast to beat the slow AI, and for the middle distance, the best way to win is to sit behind the leader and just pull out and sprint at the finish. If you don't have them after doing the competitions, go into the individual events. Unfortunately there is no way to check which events you have or do not have gold on.

RESPECTABLE COLLECTION10

GOLDEN HOURS50
COLLECT 50 GOLD MEDALS IN SINGLE PLAYER. 

You will easily pick up 50 gold medals while completing the career. If you need any silver or bronze medals, just select an individual event 100m sprint on easy and fix the race to ensure you finish second or third. Just restart the event until you have enough medals.

CHAMPION100
WIN THE CAREER. 

This is awarded for winning all three stages of the career. As your stats increase as you play through, you will get better, so use these playthroughs to learn the mechanics of each event. You will need near perfect stats to get enough points to win the third stage of the career, and place highly in each individual event.

LUCKY STREAK20
HIT THE BULLSEYE SIX TIMES IN A ROW AT ARCHERY IN SINGLE PLAYER, PURE MODE. 

Use the 70m Compound event for this as you get more time to line up your shot. Just be patient with your shots, and wait until the wind is nice and calm. What ever wind there is take into consideration and adjust your shots accordingly. Can be unlocked in any single player game type (not arcade mode).

ULTIMATE ATHLETE100
MAXIMIZE ALL OF YOUR SKILLS. 

When playing through your career, after every event, regardless of how you do you will be given stats to invest into training. It is up to you really what you invest in, but the goal is to of course max all stats to 100. The last few points will be the slowest to come, and there doesn't really seem to be a pattern to what unlocks available "potential" points. Just keep playing through your career until you have everything at 100.

DEFYING ALL COMPETITION50
WIN ALL COMPETITIONS. 

This is awarded for winning all the competitions including the custom competition from the main menu. You can select the difficulty to easy to make this a synch. The competitions range from a few events to every event but you can always get false starts in the swimming or middle distance events to save time, and you should still be able to win by winning all other events.

GENEROUS10
ALLOW YOUR OPPONENTS A HEAD START OF 5 SECONDS AND WIN IN A SPRINT RACE (RUNNING, SINGLE PLAYER).  

Select 200m or 400m sprint on easy difficulty. After the starter gun goes, count to five (or six if your counting is a bit out), and then go hell for leather. You should be able to catch up and win as the AI is so slow on Easy. Win to unlock.

KANGAROO15
WIN A GOLD MEDAL IN ALL JUMPING DISCIPLINES IN SINGLE PLAYER. 

You should get this while playing all the competitions on Easy difficulty. As the AI are so poor, you only need average jumps to win golds. For the high jump and pole vault, just select a height maybe 20-30cm above the starting and you should get gold. For long and triple jump, just make sure you have a steady run up and don't foul. If you don't have them after doing the competitions, go into the individual events. Unfortunately there is no way to check which events you have or do not have gold on.

ROOKIE10
ENHANCE TWO SKILLS TO 50 PERCENT. 

See "ULTIMATE ATHLETE."

PIGEON HUNTER15
HIT 15 CLAY PIGEONS IN A ROW IN AN AMERICAN SKEET SHOOTING EVENT IN SINGLE PLAYER. 

See "STATIONARY SUCCESS."

DOUBLE AGENT15
HIT ALL DOUBLES IN AN AMERICAN SKEET SHOOTING EVENT IN SINGLE PLAYER. 

See "STATIONARY SUCCESS."

DYNAMIC DUOS25
HIT ALL DOUBLES AT AN INTERNATIONAL SKEET SHOOTING EVENT IN SINGLE PLAYER. 

See "STATIONARY SUCCESS."

STATIONARY SUCCESS10
HIT ALL CLAY PIGEONS AT STATION FOUR AT AN INTERNATIONAL SKEET SHOOTING EVENT IN SINGLE PLAYER. 

The shooting events are by far the hardest events in this game. They will take a lot of practice to get right. You will need to learn to listen to the sound of the skeet being released and time your shots perfectly. Some shots you will have enough time to react when you see it, some you will need to move your aim, others you will have to rely on your senses. Keep on retrying until you know instinctively where and when the shots need to be made. With a lot of patience, practice and a little bit of luck this and the other three shooting skill based achievements will be yours.

PATIENT5
FINISH A SKEET SHOOTING EVENT WITHOUT CALLING 'PULL'. 

When in any skeet event, make sure you never press  to "Pull." At the end of the event, this will unlock. Can be unlocked in any single player game mode.

IMPATIENT5
FINISH A SKEET SHOOTING EVENT CALLING 'PULL' EACH TIME. 

When in any skeet event, make sure you press  to "Pull" every skeet. At the end of the event, this will unlock. Can be unlocked in any single player game mode.

LEADING ATHLETE15
PLACE FIRST IN THE HIGHSCORE OF EACH DISCIPLINE (SINGLE PLAYER). 

This is awarded for topping the leaderboard of every discipline. This will most likely be the last achievement you unlock as some of the records will take a lot of practice to get. You can check the high scores from the main menu. The following are brief tips to help you in your goal, however the main key is to keep practicing until you get there!
 

  • Sprints: A Perfect start is needed for the 100m & 200m, then run like hell (100 or close to) for the whole sprint. The 400m is more forgiving, you don't need a perfect start but it helps!
  • Hurdles: Perfectly clear each hurdle and run close to full speed
  • Middle distance: Get to the front and pull away, run at three bars empty from the top, and sprint at the end.
  • Jumping: For Long & Triple, a perfect run and perfect takeoffs, High Jump and Pole Vault shouldn't be a problem
  • Throwing: Full speed and a perfect release should get all of these
  • Swimming: Perfect turns and grabs are needed here, and near perfect speed all the way though
  • Diving: You will need to do complicated dives near perfectly for this
  • Shooting: Probably the hardest. Learn the shoots and to listen for releases.
  • Archery: Be patient and line up your shots. With the 50m Recurve, if the shot is not good don't release.
  • Cycling: For the Sprint you will need a perfect start, with the others make sure you maintain your stamina else you will fail. Pursuit around 54 km/h is a good pace, for Scratch around 48 km/h
TEAM EFFORT5
LEAD YOUR TEAM TO VICTORY IN THE CO-OP CUP. 

In the Co-Op cup, just make sure you win. There is only two events, the 4x100m Spring and Swimming Relays. You only need one controller as it is meant to be passed between two players. On easy this will be simple.

QUALIFIED ATHLETE20
FINISH THE BERLIN WORLD CUP QUALIFYING FOR EACH FINAL. 

When playing through the Berlin World Cup ensure you qualify for each final, which is simple enough when on Easy Difficulty.

HEROES OF BERLIN75
WIN THE BERLIN WORLD CUP WITH A MALE TEAM. 

Play through all nine days of competition with a male and female team, making sure you win overall. This is simple if you set the difficulty to Easy.

HEROINES OF BERLIN75
WIN THE BERLIN WORLD CUP WITH A FEMALE TEAM.
