Welcome to Anarchy: Rush Hour. This is a pretty short "Arcade Style" racing game with a twist. If you are one of those racers who have perfected the "wall-riding" maneuver and the opponent "tap-out" maneuver while cornering, then this game is for you and you will excel at it. You play by creating total chaos at blistering speeds, which often makes the cars almost un-controllable. The only way for you to remain on track is by timing your slides so that you can hit something, which in turn will put you "on course".
Needless to say, some of you may find the game to be quirky, but quirky fun! Crashing is addictive to say the least. There is one more thing that should be noted: You will need two controllers in order to obtain the Platinum in this game, as controller reassignment does NOT work.
Now, let’s get to mapping out a quick route to that platinum.
I chose to start with the multiplayer, because if you have a friend that has the game, or you found one partner in the Trophy Boosting Thread, then you will be able to get 4 or 5 of the game's trophies with ease. In about 20 minutes you could get - "Finish a multiplayer race" , "Win 5 times in each multiplayer mode" , "Circuit race" , "Deathmatch" and "999 km/h" .
I have outlined a detailed course of action in the description of the "Win 5 times in each multiplayer mode" trophy. If you don't have anybody available for this right away, or simply don't want to do this first, let's move onto the Story mode.
From the "Main Menu", select "New Game" and set difficulty to "Easy". All Trophies can be unlocked on "Easy". There are NO trophies in this game related to difficulty.
You can choose to play a "Tutorial" event, where you will be introduced to the controls or you can skip it to jump straight to the action. There is two benefits in playing the "Tutorial",... so I recommend that you do play it:
One - You will get a Level 2 Booster Device and a Level 1 Repair Device for completing it! So you get to save some money on buying those later.
Two - You will be playing with all Adrenalin Devices at Level 5 and your Adrenalin will never deplete! I only managed to unlock 2 trophies in the "Tutorial". The hidden "Crash" , where you must get your car to explode and "Perform a barrel roll" , by pressing on the D-pad after hitting traffic and immediately holding down plus in direction of your choice. Nothing else can be unlocked here... believe me I tried to use this sweet Max Boost to the end.
After the "Tutorial", if you chose to play it, Story mode begins. It all starts with the main protagonist Max, a native to St. Petersburg, who moves to Moscow. Shortly afterwords his girlfriend gets kidnapped by strangers in powerful sports cars. He receives a "call" on his girlfriends phone, which she dropped, from one of her friends named ChaCha. Calls are received in form of a text message, that you can view by pressing .
Max asks this "friend", if there is any way for them, to get him into the street racing scene in Moscow. After an introductory short driving event, the main game begins. As soon as you arrive at the "Garage" and enter it by pressing , you will unlock a trophy, no other than ... you guessed it, "Garage" .
From this point on, proceed to unlock the "Buy a car" , "Buy a device" , "Paint your car" and "Fit accessories" . You start with $50,000 so you could always go back out to main menu and start fresh after unlocking those trophies. Next, if you didn't play the "Tutorial", go out to "Free Play" and start hitting things and crashing your car until it explodes to unlock "Crash" .
If you did the multiplayer, by now you should have about 10 trophies. Now that's a good start! Let's move on to the Story, which is nothing special, but it's a chaotic racing game, we don't need no story. Get familiar with the button, It is your friend, as you will be receiving all your "calls" in form of text there. There are 3 factions in the game, "The Furious car Club", "The Jokers car Club" and the "The Forsage car Club" and each of them will keep calling and texting you for different events. You don't have to drive to those events, simply hit , find the message of your choice and press to telleport to the starting line!
By participating in those events, you will unlock 13 hidden story mode trophies. The reason I say participate, not Win, is because you will need to try and pay attention to what the conditions are when you read the text. There is more than one missable hidden story trophy that depends on those conditions. I will give details what to watch for below.
Even if the names of the trophies can clue you in on the required task, I assure you they can only be unlocked in the Story! You get calls or text messages from the game protagonists in which they will invite you to a task specific event. The event can be accessed in 3 ways -
- by hitting to bring up your "in-game" media device that has all your messages, find the message of choice and hit to start the event.
- by hitting to bring up the "shortcuts" menu and choosing "Races"
- by going to the "Garage", either from the "shortcuts" menu, or driving to it. After you are in the "Garage", select "Races" which is the first option.
Be extra careful not to delete any of those messages by accident. Read them and try to fulfill the given task. Those are your clues for the missable trophies below. When you see them in the game, look at each corresponding trophy in the guide for details on what you must do:
Message One - ChaCha
Hey Max, I have some shady business to discuss. Well I need a car taken to a garage and hidden. I don't have the papers, but I have the keys.
Event Info- The 1st event from ChaCha.
Named: Transport the car.
Route: Kutuzovsky Prospekt.
Time: 1m 30s.
Related Trophy - "Transport the car"
Note: Restart, if you see you are loosing.
Message Two - The Boiled
I've got the money. Let's meet at the V.V.C.
Event Info The 3rd event from "The Furious" car Club.
Named: Meeting The Boiled (the first Deathmatch event).
Route: The V.V.C.
Related Trophy - "Escape the pursuit"
Note: This is immediately AFTER the Deathmatch!
Message Three - Garik
You drive well! Our friend, Zanuda found out that this guy 'Fatso' has some hot new wheels, which we could surely use. Ride over to his garage and hijack the car. And DON'T attract any police attention! Don't let us down...
Event Info - The 6th event from "The Furious car Club.
Named: Hijacking a car.
Related Trophy - "Hijack a car"
Note: Restart, if you see you are loosing.
Message Four - Kolyan
Some racers from St. Petersburg just arrived, must be friends of yours. We decided to have a battle between the two cities, so you have to join their team for the time being.
Event Info - The 7th event from "The Forsage" car Club.
Named: Team Race.
Route: Kremlevskaya Naberezhnaya.
Vs: Kolyan, Nitros & Psycho
Related Trophy - "Championship"
You MUST loose this event to unlock the next one
There is one important thing to know while playing: every now and then you will get in a position where after a crash, or a way too ambitious short cut, you will get back on the track, but the game will insist that you are driving the "Wrong Way". If that ever happens to you, immediately hold down the button to be placed back on the last registered track location.
While you progress the Story, you will also unlock all of the "Win a..." variety of trophies - "Circuit" and "Deathmatch" (can be unlocked in multiplayer or Side Race), "Sprint" , "Top Speed" , "Knockout" , "Stunts" , "Checkpoints" (Those are found strictly in the Story) and "Side race" . A side race is ANY race event not given by any of the 3 Clubs.
While doing all of this, you will be betting money and taking prize money from the events, accumulating riches, which you will use to upgrade your car and buy new cars (there are multiple trophies for doing that). You will receive most of them throughout the natural course of the game. Now with the Story out of the way, let's see what do we have left to Clean-Up.
Here you will be working towards the accumulative trophies such as: "Buy all cars" , "Reach maximum level with all adrenalin devices" , "1000 traffic cars" , "1000 kilometers" , "1000 objects" . And get any other trophy you may have missed while playing, like: "Monorail train" , "Stuntman" or "250 km/h speed limit" . For the last one, you may need to back up your save and restart the story briefly if you missed your chance. Don't forget and get the "Splitscreen race" out of the way too.
In closing, Congratulations to all of you that manage to get to the Platinum.
