Arcade Mode

3 posts in this topic

Just wondering if anybody else thinks that arcade mode is ridiculously difficult or is it just me? I'm stuck on race 2 (Silverstone) of the intermediate difficulty, I've completed the race approximately 25 times now and can't seem to finish any higher than 5th. My best race time for the 4 laps is 7:35 while 2nd place finished in 7:28, 7 seconds over 4 laps faster than my quickest time just seems impossible.

 

What kind of lap times were you all doing in this race and do you have any tips that could help bring my times down? I'm racing with the FXX and I've only managed to break the 1:50 mark a handful of times largely because I keep getting punted off the track by the AI when I slow down to take corners. The only "help" that I find online is "use the FXX, you'll win easily"...

 

Arcade mode is the last thing that I have to complete in the game, everything else I managed to finish with relative ease but this one race just seems impossible...

Let me guess: You are playing the digital version? Apparently it's significantly harder than the disc version. Check this thread out.

 

I hope this helps to wipe that incomplete game off your profile ;)

The AI in this game is programmed horribly. They drive worse than many online players do in racing games. They block the hell out of you, push you off the track, ram you into the corners, it makes arcade mode unnecessarily frustrating. It markets itself as more of a simulator but yet the AI drives like it's an arcade racer. 

 

But I got through intermediate difficulty pretty easily so I suppose I have the 'easy version'. What a stupid thing to have certain versions of the game that are more difficult for no reason. Eutechnyx made this game so I guess it shouldn't be surprising that they'd find a way to mess it up. I've been scratching and clawing on getting the platinum for this game for a month now, doing the same races over and over again at the same tracks, I finally got through the never ending trophy races which take up the majority of your time now I just have arcade mode to finish up. I just want to be done with this game already.
