Let's hope these are not incremental ("win x times", "play x races"), or the eventually inevitable variant of the same ("unlock vehicle x", which is unlocked by playing the game for 3 hours"). I've never understood why someone would feel a sense of accomplishment from doing something that takes no skill, only an investment of time

Give me difficult to reach drift and jump time achievements, tackling three opponents off the road with one twist of the wheel, a smashing 90% of all the scenery and still win achievement, win the game by driving over the finish line backwards, that sort of stuff

Trying to figure out how exactly the controls work. Looking at the screens, it's not quite clear.

You forgot Ghost Trick. Those that know how great it is will have a hard Time to choose between Reckless Racing 2 and Ghost Trick.

There is a Reason why a lot of us had bought a 3DS because of Ghost Trick and none other Game.

On the left: steering left/right
On the right: arrow up is gas and arrow down is brake/reverse

Not that hard is it

I hope there is also some sort of floating joystick option for steering like in death rally, the more recent paper monsters,...
That's my kind of controls!

Yeah I agree, but 7 is small. Not to really compare 2 different platforms, but Xbox achievements show that you can incorporate quite a few challenging achievements into a game.

As far as completion achievements, I really like those. they are the leaderboards of achievements. A lot of people might not invest the time or effort into a certain level/stage, so getting a completed level 20 or all 3/5 achievement can feel good/great.

While I might get this tonight, I can't help to say that the Sanuku videos shOw somewhat of a... boring gameplay. No challenge from AI drivers and the drifts just don't seem as exciting like the first game.

I can't say that I found those videos terribly exciting either. It looks alright. I might still get it, though.
