This is one of the best Top Gear episodes yet. Some people did not appreciate the horsepower measurement of the GT-500, so skip Part 2 if you're bored. It takes some time to watch the whole episode. However, Part 1 and Part 3 worth every second of the time...Enjoy!
I just beat RAAM by Solo with INSANE difficulty, so I figured I need to log on Xbox live and back up the scores. After the sync, Xbox live displays TWO SETS of scores to me on the SAME screen. The main Game Card shows I have 500 points in total, but the SAME Game Card on the top right still shows my old score - 380. This is after 5 mins of the sync, and I have refreshed the page 10+ times.
I did it! I beat the SH*$t out of RAAM with INSANE difficulty in Solo!! (Check my Xbox Live achievement and scores.) It actually took me a month of "exercise", believe it or not. I played the last scene every other day for about an hour , and the experience and skills built up to the point I was no longer afraid of him.
I tried many strategies, and I tried different ways. None of them worked. A quick search in Google with "RAAM INSANE" easily reveals how difficult it is for some players and fans of Gears.
So how did I do it? Well, I figure out two points:
1. I need to execute quickly. The longer I spend in the scene, the less chance I will beat him because RAAM will either runs close to me, or the f*^%king flying RAVENS will kill me.
2. I need a powerful weapon. Most postings I read about this topic suggests NOT to use the shotgun. But I did, and I won. Why? The shotgun has lots of power and it does lots of damage. It is not good for long distance shooting, but if you use it behind a concrete wall while RAAM is stuck, it becomes the most effective weapon ever! (Seriously, every time I fire the shotgun, RAAM jerks a little and sometimes screams a little for his pain.)
That's it, it was very simple after all. I got him stuck near the concrete wall, and I hide in front of him. I fire the torque bow to kill the kryills, then I quickly switch to the shotgun and blind shoot. I repeat the process until RAAM is killed...and it only takes about 2 minute. =)
For those Gears fans who are still trying out their luck, I hope my tip will help.
Top Gear's Richard Hammond is back, live and healthy! He was very brave and very lucky. It's good to see him again in the show, and it's a mixed feeling to see him talking about the Crash Event (he crashed in a jet-engine powered car at 314mph)in the show...
