Welcome to WRC Powerslide, developed by Milestone, they have approached the game with a top down camera perspective to add an arcade feel to the game with the addition of power ups the player can use such as Hailstorm, Cloud of Dust, Thunderbolt & Nitro for a fun and frantic racing experience all with the modern day WRC cars/teams with a multiplayer mode included to keep the racing fresh.
A few tips -
CLOUD OF DUST
Approximately half of the achievement list (6 achievements) are tied to using power ups. Power ups show up as spinning signs with exclamation marks throughout the track in races, you drive through these and you can use them instantly but beware, your opponents can also use them on you as well which is very frequent on this game in the last few stages.
You need to use the Flatout & Horn Power power ups 3 times each in a single race (not both power ups in a single race, just 3 uses of the same power up). You need to use the Extreme Pace, Thunder Bolt & Hailstorm power ups 10 times but these are accumulative across all events. The most specific one is the Cloud power which you must use only once but has to be in a Special Stage within the Wales Rally GB, which is the last stage on the singleplayer.
Ultimately, you need to 100% the single player in order to earn Rally king which means you need to earn a gold medal in every Rally. This will unlock 4 achievements of which 3 are specific to earning a gold medal in the Vodafone Rally de Portugal, Rally Guanajuato Mexico & Rallye de France - Alsace.
There is only one multiplayer achievement in the game International Rallyist which requires you to accumulate 45 minutes of total racing time in multiplayer events.
Improvised Slide - 20
Use the "Cloud" Power-Up in a Special Stage in the Wales Rally GB
The Cloud power up releases heavy fumes behind your car, blinding any opponent behind you. You must use this power up once in Wales Rally GB which is the very last Rally in the singleplayer.
To the edge... and beyond! - 20
Use the "Flatout" Power-Up 3 times in the same race
This power up gives a powerful acceleration boost (nitrous). You will most likely get this by chance before moving onto the second stage. Can be unlocked in multiplayer races.
The wall of sound - 20
Use the "Horn Power" Power-Up 3 times in the same race
This power up will launches a sphere shaped shockwave that will hit and spin out the opponent in front of you. You can't pick this power up if you're in first place. Can be unlocked in multiplayer races.
Crazy pace - 20
Use the "Extreme Pace" Power-Up 10 times in total
This power up will enable a red shield to your car that protects you from enemy attacks, it will also increase your max speed for a few seconds essentially giving you a small speed boost. Hitting an opponent with this power up in use will knock them off the track as well. This is the most frequent power up you will collect, regardless of the position you're in. Can be unlocked in multiplayer races.
As fast as lightning - 20
Use the "Thunder Bolt" Power-Up 10 times in total
This power up will unleash a bolt of lightning from above on whoever is in first place, which will dramatically slow them down. You if you collect this power up while in first place, the bolt will hit the AI behind you. Can be unlocked in multiplayer races.
Bad weather today... - 20
Use the "Hailstorm" Power-Up 10 times in total
This power up sprinkles hailstorm above all 3 other opponents which slows them down completely. Can be unlocked in multiplayer races.
Flying start - 20
Win a Special Stage in Single Player mode
You will unlock this after winning the very first race in the "Rallye Mote-Carlo" Rally, in any class.
Gravel king - 40
Win all the gold medals in the "Vodafone Rally de Portugal"
This is the 3rd Rally out of 9 available in the singleplayer. You need to win all 3 Special Stages in any WRC, Class 2 & Class 3 category car. That's 9 gold medals. Difficulty rating 3/5.
Hairpin king - 40
Win all the gold medals in the "Rally Guanajuato Mexico"
This is the 6th Rally out of 9 available in the singleplayer. You need to win all 3 Special Stages in any WRC, Class 2 & Class 3 category car. That's 9 gold medals. Difficulty rating 4/5.
International Rallyist - 70
Reach a total of 45 minutes of racing in valid Online games
With an online stage lasting an average of roughly 3 minutes, you only need to complete 15 online races for this achievement. 16-17 races maximum if you do finish a few races just under 3 minutes. Make sure you cross the finish line, if you end up with a DNF then it won't count as a "Valid" online race.

Rally king - 70
Complete the Single Player mode to 100% and win the final cup!
There are 8 Rallies in the singleplayer as follows with their corresponding difficulty levels each measured from a scale of 1-5, with 5 being the hardest.
Don't let the difficulty rating for each Rally fool you, they are all actually equally as easy. There is not much difference between 2 & 5 bar ratings apart from the increase of complexity of the tracks as you progress, the AI remain the same throughout and don't get any harder.
That's 3 races per Special Stage. 3 Special Stages within a Rally with a total of 8 Rallies. 3 x 3 x 8 - 72. You need to win 72 races, earn a gold medal in each race and you will unlock this achievement. See my tips above for more help.
Asphalt king - 40
Win all the gold medals in the "Rallye de France - Alsace"
This is the 5th Rally out of 9 available in the singleplayer. You need to win all 3 Special Stages in any WRC, Class 2 & Class 3 category car. That's 9 gold medals. Difficulty rating 4/5.
Thanks for reading.

Easy method for the power-up achievements is to just stop at a power-up pick-up location and keep pressing A. It will launch the power-up and pick up a new one right away. Doesn't work for all power-ups, as you need to be ahead of an opponent for some. But I had a hard time getting 3 horns in a race and doing it this way was really easy.

If you start to struggle on any stages or just get pissed off with the AI keep hitting you with power-ups just go back to the main menu and turn off the power-ups in the settings section
After doing this I was winning every race by 5-10secs =)
EDIT... I was even able to win by a large margin on new tracks I'd not even raced on before without being knocked off the track every 10secs by the AI power-ups
