For this achievement you need to earn Gold medals in all Critical Urgency levels, these are the levels marked with a yellow lightning bolt (in mission select and in the loading screen as well).

Minimum requirement for Gold medal is:
Complete the level within the three star time limit (the toughest goal)
AND collect enough rescue pods and crystals to earn at least one star for both (if these collectables are present in the respective level).

If you do not collect the minimum of crystals or pods the level will fail even if you finish the level within gold time limit.

You may die as often as you want as long as you reach the gold time limit.

If you are like me and have limited skill with the game, you know you will not get the PERFECT achievements, but you want this achievement anyways, here are some tips for you:

- Of course, use the RT button as much as possible to rush through the levels.
- You can skip lots of switches, many only open up areas with some extra escape pods. In most levels you will almost automatically hit the required amount of pods.
- You can rarely completely skip the indoor sprint areas (you will have to collect enough crystals in order to finish the level!), BUT... in some levels you can open up the map and warp IMMEDIATELY to the exit of the zone once you hit the minimum amount of crystals for the level. If you have to go through the sprint zone in order to unlock a button required to progress in the level, you can warp immediately to the exit once you do so, saving some precious seconds.
- Level 50 requires some practice. If you are like me and are completely unskilled with the controls you should write down the directions you have to press in the sections (or memorize them) and stick to your notes. You can only rarely let go of the RT button as the time limit is very harsh in level 50. Remember, you only need 200 pods for the minimum requirement. You can get most of them in the first areas. You need 3-4 seconds spare time in the end, as the time will stop only once the dialogue starts. Then it will freeze.
- The game will only count "full" seconds. If you have e.g. 1 minute to complete the level and you take 1 minute and 99/100 seconds it will count as 1 minute (especially in the final level this is important, if you finish with 0:59 you are fine).

In the end, this achievement does not require too much skill. Just some practice and patience. Start with Level 50 and work your way down to Level 1. Remember, only the levels with the yellow lightning bolts are required.

One more thing: The level map (LB) will only be unlocked by proceeding to about level 15 in story mode (when you learn how to set up warp panels). From that time on it will be always availlable.

Good luck!
