Unlike the other stages so far, you'll need to do some actual running in this stage.

In the level with objective "Get out of Las Vegas" you need to race ahead of the cops until you reach a wall of cars around a corner blocking your way.

Don't panic when the screen goes dark and you're Busted. It's all part of the show.

Jack will kneel down and you will see a prompt to press a button as a cop starts to cuff you. Press the button to cuff him and make a run for it!

Besides the other prompts make sure to tap A fast when prompted to stay ahead. Pressing A any slower and you'll be caught.

After jumping over the fence, you'll meet a mad dog. Whether it's a K-9 unit or just a junkyard guard dog, it is quite ferocious! There will be one cheap moment when you have to press X and then X again. Cheap because the game doesn't have the X button prompt disappear so I was fooled into thinking I only had to press it once. Button prompts turn a slight silver once pressed so watch for the X button to go from silverish back to a full blue and press X again. That should do it. (Or knowing what you know now, just press X like crazy until it's off the screen. ;p)

Once out on the street, be aware that the game will throw you a curve ball with an RT prompt mixed in with the traditional button prompts. Keep a cool head and you should survive traffic.

One good thing about the on-foot section here (and I'm guessing all others) is that the failures in these don't get counted as restarts. So if you raced well you'll still get a perfect run (ha).

And once you've escaped, you get to choose a new car!

Happy running!
