[top]Introduction:

Each of these cars is the digital incarnation of one of the real cars that participate in the official Superstars competition. This series of races is not so well known because most races take place in Italy. Hence all the Italian teams, with Italian pilots, Cars vary, from the famous BMW M5's, Audi RS4's to Jaguar S-Type's and more. To complete the identification with the Superstars competition the game has adopted the intro to the movies of the Superstars championship. Superstars V8 Racing is an average driving game as regards obtaining trophies just a few difficult ones, but patience and determination is the key to obtaining the Platinum Trophy.


[top]Tips and Strategies

Single Player:

Quick Race: The Quick Race mode has been designed to let you take part in races quickly and easily. In this mode you can customize your race in order to get straight on the track, by choosing the circuit, driver, number of laps to race, position on the starting grid, weather conditions and ability of the other drivers.
Training: This mode allows you to race on any track in any order to help you familiarize yourself with the track layouts. You can choose your driver and the track on which you wish to practice, and you can also race against a ghost driver for your fastest lap or that of another player.
Race Weekend: This mode gives you chance to experience a whole weekend of racing, made up of, Free Practice 1 - 30 minutes to fine tune the car and familiarize yourself with the circuit and finishing at the end of the lap in which the checkered flag appears. Free Practice 2 - 30 minutes to perfect car settings before qualifying. Qualifying Practice - 30 minutes to obtain your fastest lap time and to determine the order of the starting grid. Race - after the warm up lap the drivers line up on the grid, ready to start when the green light shows.
Championship: This is the most comprehensive offline mode, where you have the opportunity to experience the emotions of an entire season. As in the Race Weekend, you can challenge the 18 competitors in Free Practice, Time Attack and Race modes, battling to gain more points than the other drivers in order to be crowned champion at the end of the season. It is important to note that in Championship Mode, Qualifying Practice is not only important to gain a good place on the starting grid, but also the top three in qualifying will be given extra points.
Superstars® Licenses: This mode is made up of a series of 20 challenges that will put your driving abilities to the test in the most demanding situations, and the aim is not merely to finish first. By overcoming each challenge, you move up to the next one, which gets harder as you go along.

Multiplayer:

You can host a race or take part in one that has already been set up by another player, setting the level of driving aids, track, weather conditions, number of laps and amount of players, and official rules and collisions. You can also reserve places in the starting grid for your friends or force the participants to only be able to use manual transmission or the interior car view of the track. The results will have an effect in the races on your world leaderboard ranking. There is no multiplayer trophies on this Trophy Guide.


[top]Roadmap

  • To start a good tip is to first go to the Realism Settings and tun off the penalties, this will help you in the Quick Race and Championship modes. Then at the main menu select race options, set the Race to 1 lap and the opponent level to Easy, select your starting position on the grid to 1st prior to all your races. Also the I'm in love with my car trophy will unlock for driving for at least 200 km in Single Player mode with the same team, I used the Audi RS4 which seems to be the best all round choice car.
  • Start the game first in the Training Mode and get familiar with the 10 tracks in the game, you will have to beat the record time on 9 of them to claim the prizes and the The king of hourglass trophy, a 9th track record contributes to the Mister Tester trophy, which is to Complete 15 laps in Training Mode with the same driver on your favorite track, which is advisable to be done straight after. All this section previous has to be done in one go and remember not to go off the tracks, that counts as an invalid lap and use the Audi with the same Team to complete all this section.
  • The next part move onto the Superstars® License Mode. The licenses are just a challenge mode which should get you a few trophies as listed below for completing all of them which are not too difficult.
  • After this move onto the Championship Mode. This will require the four game playthroughs and make sure the penalties is turned off in the Realism settings prior to starting these. Start on the easy difficulty setting using your favorite car and complete each championship on each difficulty setting through to Legend difficulty setting. One exception is that on the medium difficulty setting you can use the CAAL Racing Team BMW which will unlock the BMWinner trophy.
  • The last part is to head onto Quick Races Mode and recap on the Trophy Guide which trophies you need to unlock, select the required game settings and also check the Extras Menu to see which prizes you have missing on your game stats which will include getting the The driver more than the car trophy - Win at least a race with every team in the game.

[top]Closing Comments:

Superstars V8 Racing is not a long game to platinum, but only attempt the game if you enjoy racing around the track for many hours as it gets quite tedious at times and you will need to take a break from it as all the driving starts to look the same. There is 4 playthroughs needed which requires you to do the full championships at the 4 difficulty settings in order to get close to the platinum trophy. Most of the trophies will not unlock until you are at the saving contents screen after each race so make a note of this.
