Points Plateau – jump the dead tree at the bridge intersection and jump twice more, using full 3-Boost power to land on a plateau that has lots of bonus points.
If there are more areas I could document, let me know.
I've played this game for Gamecube. I think I've seen it advertised for Wii, PS2, PS3, Xbox and PCs.
Most data gathered in August, 2006. Last edits: March 20, 2007.
Some of my descriptions may be confusing. I don't mind modifying them. Feel free to send comments to Ken Duisenberg.
A walkthru really isn't needed for this game. Each task that hasn't been completed is indicated by a white dot on the mini-map. Head towards it and you'll be find the "next thing".
A few hints and tricks:
"Lots of Boost": You can get boost canisters from (1) Boosting with Fillmore, (2) The Rustbucket Race-O-Rama in Ornament Valley, and (3) the Road Hazards race in Tailfin Pass. Some jumps will require you have more than one of these.
Events and what you get for each are in the table below, roughly in order.
RS=Radiator Springs, OV=Ornament Valley (east of RS), TP=Tailfin Pass (west and
north of RS).
Most races must be finished in the top 3 to get any winnings. Some have to be finished in first place. Piston Cup races don't let you use Powerslide or Boost; you can jump but it's not usually useful. You can also use the map to find these events. The map is also handy for summarizing how many trophies you've achieved in each event. Although you don't have to play all the minigames and races to unlock events, you will need a minimum number of trophies for Piston Cup races, so you may have to play a few.
