CONTACT INFORMATION =============================================================================== Yo people, I'm Hunter. If you have any questions regarding my guide, which you shouldn't, then don't hestitate and send me an E-Mail or (preferably) a message over Xbox LIVE with your question. I will most often respond to you as quick as I can. =============================================================================== B. INTRODUCTION =============================================================================== Yeah, well this is the second game of Cars. And personally I like this game a lot more fun than the original Cars game. It's just a landslide more fun to play. Whether you like it or not, it's still a fun game to work towards Achievements on as they're easy to get and not a problem. You're mostly Lightning McQueen most of the time, and (obviously) Mater. Hence, the name: Mater-National. I highly reccomend reading taking a look at my Overall Rating of this game, it could determine whether you rent/buy (rent!) or not. Hunter's Overall Ranking of Cars: Mater-National: 8.5/10- A good game if you love those "racing" type of games. A good challenge to get into racing games. All the races are easy so you don't have to worry about spinning out or running off the track. This campaign will, however, keep you busy and entertained to the end. I give it an 8.5 instead of a 10 because the races are actually TOO easy. That, and the mini-games are pretty un-original. Beat your opponent to the rings, collect the canister before your opponent does, yeah yeah. =============================================================================== C. ACHIEVEMENT GUIDE =============================================================================== ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 1. Stick it to McQueen (25GS) Beat the three Radiator Springs road races and the Relay Race, then place in the first Stadium Race. When you unlock the road races, play them, beat them. Then finally, when you get the Relay Race beat that too. Try to get first in all these races. You will unlock the first Stadium Race, a sticker, and Ornament Valley. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 2. Rust Bust (75GS) Qualify in the first three Rustbucket Series races, then win the final. After unlocking Ornament Valley, search around for the Rustbucket stadium. After completing all three Rustbucket series, winning first place each time, you will go to the finals. Play that, win first, and you will unlock a sticker along with this Achievement. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 3. Golden Gas Can (75GS) Win each of the nine levels of Fillmore's Fuel Frenzy. You will unlock each of the nine levels of this minigame through playing the game. When you get to one, race around collecting gas cans to prevent losing your gas. When you have one, try purposely running out of gas to finish the race. Oh, and pick up gas cans wisely. Try not to pick up a 3 gas can after only losing a small amount of gas. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 4. Frank Slash (75GS) Tip all tractors before the time limit in each of the six levels of Tractor Tipping. This is like the overall best minigame in the game. Funny, but it kind of reminds me of Splinter Cell. Standing in the open and still not being seen. Okay, well anyways, simply unlock these as you play, play it, and beat it. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 5. High Draulics (75GS) Score well playing along with each of the seven songs in Ramone's Rhythimic Rumble. Very simple and fun to get along the way. Simply press the button as they come onto the screen. Do this with all seven of this minigame and voila! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 6. Ghost Light (100GS) Scare Mater home in each of the seven Ghosting Mater levels. Drive along the roads as Mater and when you slow down, try to run into a beacon to speed you up again. Please take note that the X-Axis (left and right) is inverted so press left to go right and press right to go left. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 7. James P. Sullivan Cup (75GS) Qualify in the first two Waypoint Race Series races, then finish in the top three of the final. Just another one of those racing Achievements. Win the first two Waypoint races then when you get to the final finish in 1st, 2nd, or 3rd. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 8. Race 'n' Chase Victor (75GS) Tag your opponent then zoom to your goal without being tagged in all nine Race 'n' Chase levels. As soon as the minigame starts, quickly drive to your opponent, run into him, and do a U-turn. Quickly go to your goal without him tagging you back. If it occurs that he does, restart. All nine of these will unlock as you play your way through the game. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 9. Unlock Tailfin Pass (25GS) Beat the three Ornament Valley road races and the Relay Race, then place in the second Stadium race. Same thing as the "Stick it to McQueen" Achievement except in this one your in Ornament Valley and the races will be a little more challenging. Simply beat them, play the Stadium Race, and you will get this Achievement along with Tailfin Pass. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 10.

CONCLUSION =============================================================================== Well, I hope you enjoyed my Achievement Guide. It literally took me about 3 hours to do only 16 Achievements. If you had the choice of renting/buying one or the other: Cars or Cars: Mater-National, I would pick Mater-National. It's Achievements are easier to get and it's a lot more fun than the original one. But that's your choice. Anyways, you can STILL send me an E-Mail at Hummer1114@Gmail.com or (preferably) a message on Xbox LIVE to Maj0r_Black0ut. Well, cya!
