With recently earning this achievement I wanted to try and help others that are struggling just like I did. I will mention great tips, reference websites I used and which 6 goals I chose to omit at the end when I finally unlocked the final challenge. I hope this guide helps. I wanted to write more of a guide than the previous ones who really just tell you what you have to do rather than explain how you do it. I also give a few tips that helped me on the last challenge.
Remember you need 95% of challenges completed at sick.
That leaves 6 challenges you can omit to unlock the final challenge. The other 6 need be done at PRO. You can check your progress by pressing the start button and going to the skater options.
1. Classic Goals
Focus heavily on completing all the CLASSIC GOALS at sick level first. This can really prepare you for all other challenges at sick. In my opinion if you can do those you have this game in the bag. Now with saying that that doesn't mean this is at all easy. You will get frustrated at how glitchy this game can be and how unreliable it is but STICK with it! You can do it! Be sure to check the achievement guides for each of those cause they have YouTube videos that will show you the best line in getting them completed.
2. If You're Stuck
If ever you get so frustrated or just can't beat one of the challenges then move on to another one and come back to it another day.
Don't ever forget about FOCUS (slow mo) cause seriously it is your only friend in this game. Slow mo comes in real handy in all challenges so always use it! It will save time on timed missions and help with those hard to get gaps/tricks.
4. Best Advice on Each Type of ChallengeTurf Wars
: Before you start be sure to do the math on what is required for the sick goal. For instance if the goal is that you need 1 million points you need to have at least 30 tricks times 33,500 points or a similar variation. Second your three friends in these types of challenges is slow-mo, getting off your board (if needed) and the 900 to easily rack up your points. Films
: For these types of challenges it is good to know that you should activate slow mo as much as you can for it will slow down the clock a lot! Also remember get yourself set up with each trick before you try it and risk falling. If you fall you will lose the line you were currently working on causing your number to go down. While doing these I learned the best spots to be at for each specific trick. Practice makes perfect seriously. Get There
: To me these are easy with the exception of the Fun park one. The best advice I can give for these is find a line that works the best at getting to each checkpoint and start slow-mo when you see that you need it. Congrats to you if you can get the Fun Park one! Remember no walking in these. Nail the Trick
: Boneless is your friend with these and remember to rotate with RB or LB.Battles
: These are the ones where you compete with other skaters. The only hard one of these for me was the City Park. It is just a bad skating area but still doable with grinds, slo- mo and one 900. All other ones use a couple 900's and you should be good. Competitions
: There are only a few of these and with the 900 and slow-zombie they are easy to sick. If you bail though start over and try to land some cleans. Races
: You just need to have a lot of speed with each of these. After a few tries and seeing which route the main winner takes you will get it.Bails
: With these you want to just keep at it! Almost none of them require any skill it comes down to luck and dedication. Especially with Break Yar Bones in the Fun Park. Just keep at it!
YouTube has videos for some specific challenges so be sure to always check in case you're stuck on specific goals.http://www.gamefaqs.com/xbox-360/932714-tony-hawks-project-8...
^ This has a mini guide for completing each goal in each area of the game. It helped me a quite a bit.
6. The 6 Challenges I Omitted
I chose to not do these 6 challenges:
-Fun Park Get There.
-Fun Park Vacation Footage
-Capital Statehouse Turf War (actually not that hard not sure why I didn't do this one)
-Skate Park Clip
-Skate Park New Ground Turf War
-Slums Smokestack Turf War
I know a lot of people chose to omit the break your bone challenges but let me tell you those are ones you can't have skill for, it just happens so I continued the try those every so often cause you only have to do it once. Eventually you will get it, it just takes time. The reason I chose to omit the others is because I tried every one of them multiple times then moved on. The only two on that list I would say were the hardest is the Slums Turf war cause of it needing you to score 3 Million points and the other would be the Fun Park get there. It really made me mad. I would even say it's harder to do than the final challenge, no joke. For me at least.
7. The Last Challenge
The last challenge will frustrate you to no end but remember what you've been through to get here. Don't let it phase you. You can do it!
I highly recommend following this guys YouTube video who also recently completed this game. It helped me out a lot. Make key note on the start of the video and also to the wall rides. I chose to change it up a bit at the second marker within the skate park. My manual would always be too hard to control at that point so I chose to head to the right wall located directly to the right at the second marker and jumped into a grind which I can control much easier. Once it wrapped around to the power lines I started slow mo and followed the guys video for the rest of the line.
