It's possible. But quite hard. It was like this in the original game too. Nice to know they didn't change it.

Powerpyx said in his guide that this race may be the Platinum breaker for a lot of people. Good luck, everyone!

There's a reason why I've been checking these forums less and less lately, and it's definitely the increase in bitching threads lately.

Only lately? Where have you been the past 3 years :P

Now this is a post I was waiting for to pop up, lol. This race was notoriously difficult when the game was released, good luck with it.

Playing the original as a child i could never get past the race mission. I replayed and beated the game back in 2014 and didn't have much of an issue, sure it took a couple of tries but nothing close to impossible as some people say.

I remember seeing the same threads back in the day when the game came out. I was hoping they wouldn't make it easier. It's not that difficult.

I'm a little relieved to hear that, actually. I don't remember much from this game aside from it being my gateway drug into '30s jazz (specifically, Maestro Reinhardt) and the race mission stuff making me rage quit the game for 15 years and counting 😂

Just completed the race on classic. Took me around 2 hours of trying.

 

The first 4 turns Are the most important, if you are second on them, keep going. The first place eventually crashes on 2nd or sometimes on 3rd lap.

You screwed up your chance to get the Classic difficulty if you did that. You can't switch the difficulty at all while playing Classic, or it voids the trophy. Yes, you can still get the "Completed the game on Easy, Medium, or Hard Difficulty," but you won't get the Classic difficulty, if you changed the difficulty settings.

I completed this mission on the PS2 in 2004 so I’m hoping I can do it again now!

Oh man. I remember the original version of the race on the PC version. Good heavens, was it one of the most frustrating things to get through. Took like million tries to get it done.

The ways I will approach this as i’m hoping to milestone the game, are;

 

1. Attempt it and get a feel for what its about first hehe.

2. If it proves tricky, awkward or whatever, then usually with difficulty spikes, I naturally want to try and beat it, so it will be a rinse a repeat process and knowing me, this will be a given.

3. I’m going into this having never played it first time around, so I have some knowledge and awareness of the trophy and its requirements, so naturally this will help.

4. IF it proves to be a real stumbling block for me and is a ‘plat breaker’ as they say then yeh, i’ll be frustrated, BUT, I can always leave it and go back to it with a fresh mindset and try again? It could be the classic negajinx moment where you can’t see the wood for the trees and then bam, you nail the trophy either a few hours/days or wks later first time!

 

I always go off the fun>frustration approach in games and I will always try them if I want to play the game, but for the sake of a trophy as annoying as it can be if they are tricky or maybe out of reach for me, i’m ok with it and I move on.
