    I always wonder how ratios and TA scores change with difficult completions that go free with GwG. Making this post so I can compare the numbers later on.

    Yeah, sometimes I like to compare the stats, too.

    Interesting to see how certain factors influence how much the stats change, such as

    - how old is a game
    - is it 360 or One
    - how many people played it prior
    - niche game or blockbuster

    Plus other factors. In some cases the TA score/Ratio nearly doubles while in other cases it barely influences those stats - even for difficult games with high ratios such as Child of Eden. Great game, by the way. A shame not more people played/started it when it was Games with Gold. Older 360 game + niche genre often equals low change in stats for example.

    This game seems pretty difficult. 6+ ratio and it was out for a while. I just finished Trials of the Blood Dragon which has a 6.2 and that was unreal. The game just needs to have a few decent gamescore weighted achievements with a 10+ ratio and the overall for the game can shoot up. This game has that and less than 10 completed it. I know a lot haven't played the game but still. Who knows, this could be like giana twisted sisters and trackmania, free GwG that have 10+ ratios.

    I guess it's possible. Giana Sisters has 41k tracked gamers and Trackmania has 84k. I'll be surprised if this obscure title gets to 20k. Time will tell.

    Giana Sisters was brilliant. Trackmania was pretty fun until the later (harder/longer) levels, at which point it just became frustrating. Race the Sun looks like it's nothing but frustration from the start, so I think I'll pass.

    Still curious about the stats, though. :-)

    Well it's currently sat at 14,484 TA with the Queen achievement at a whopping 34.49 ratio. Still only 3 have completed it the game.

    This game can be surprisingly awkward at times. If only an option to skip some of the objectives was introduced, would make it a bit more user friendly.

    Wow did this thing really skyrocket in TA score, it's slowed down a bit I think as doubling the amount of completed gamers for some of the hardest achievements obviously drops those ratios, but at the same time is boosted by the amount of new people that start the game.

    Also there's still about 3 weeks left on this so I'm curious to see what the stats are at the end of the month in relation to gamers started and ratios of the hardest achievements.

    I disagree. There are a couple objectives that are difficult. I plan on completing this game, and you get a lot better at it with trial and error.

    Oh boy, I figure I’m gonna eventually start this game and trial and error sounds like fun. Just finished Trials of the Blood Dragon recently and boy was that fun.

    I'm not saying the objectives are easy, just that you'll forget about them very quickly if you go for any of the high ratio achievements in this game

    Figure maybe it levels out around 10-12k? What do you think?

    There are a maximum of 25 Race The Sun achievements worth 12,810 (1,000)
    31,839 tracked gamers have this game, 33 have completed it (0.10%)
