Yeah, Kung Fu Panda took me about 20 hours to finish, but it depends on how many times you go through the game. You could:

Go through 2 times: One on Normal, getting the 100% / 'Finish the Game without Dieing' and One on Dragon Warrior, getting 100% in each level.

OR

Go through 3 times: One on Normal, getting 100%, One on Dragon Warrior, getting 100% and One on Easy, beating the game without dieing.

Unfortunatly I did the second one, so it took me longer.

It takes much longer to get the full 1000 then 10-15 hours. First time thru all 3 storys takes around 6-8 hours if you fly thru them. And many times you will get stuck and have to resort to the forums or youtube to get help. Then you must beat it again to get all the treasures from each level which takes around 5-6 hours because you know how the levels are layed out. I also used the cheats so skip two achivements which are also collecting parcels which adds about 2-3 hours if you use the parcel guide legitly. The saving for this game messes up ocatioanlly and I had to start over 3 times. The first one I finished the first story! Then if you have any left over achievements that you have to get and grind them out like getting access to 50 enemy territories which took about a half hour. And I belive I got some of the achievements preety easily like blowing up 5 enemies with one explostion. Took me 3 tries compaired to what I heard was painful to grind out. So thats why I think it shouldn't be on here
The cheat codes speed it up quite a bit, that would be my assumption of why its there.

Even with the Guide. Mean Bean Machine is a pain in the ass.

Depending on your skill will depend on the time it takes you. 950 in under 5 hours for sure though.

Like I said, all credit to MajinFro for this idea.
I added Smackdown vs. Raw 2007 back into the 15-25 hour section. Thanks!

Thanks for the update.

Requires two play throughs, but you can complete the game in around 2.5-3hours!

Levels are short, VERY VERY easy, and you can run through the game to the checkpoints rather than killing everything.
Added Shellshock 2. Thanks!

I will be leaving Lego Indy where it is for now as the road map HERE says 10-15 hours as well as a few people I have confirmed with. Thanks for your input though.

Not that difficult as its just about timing on some of the other achievements, as long as you dont let your game autosave on you before the achievements fails (Apparently their are 3 you can miss but if your on the lookout for them you can just redo them the second you fail just hit load game and it will load up your previous save before auto save takes over. You can skip all the cutscenes after you get your achievement for watching 25 cutscenes (which are all pretty short at least at the beginning) I wasnt counting but once I hit the soccer game I let them save it a few times and the achievement seemed to pop up one scene after that.
I will actually be adding this game to the long list. Frustratingly long game for most.

Allowing for load up times you can only do this song 20 times an hour (allowing 3 mins per song including loading)
So that's 2 million points per hour which means 25 hours to get 50,000,000

You also need to do 20 tournaments where the first tracks only give you 60k (short versions) plus the online achieves.

Being realistic the game is 30 hours long minimum
Added KR: AIE to the 15-25 list as suggested by roadmap here.

Hey Roxy, you might want to note that Frontlines requires boosting for the ranked server ones in order to get it fast. 8 players are needed, and there are only 2 ranked servers, both of which are hosted by Kaos and not players. Just thought I'd mention it

Since my post got deleted when someone was cleaning up all the R6V2 argument spam I'll post again . For Sonic's Ultimate Genesis Collection it should be noted that two controllers are required because one of the unlockables requires you to beat Sonic 2 with two players. Without two controllers the maximum possible is 900/1000. As a side note it took me 7 total hours to complete. Of course I'm not that good at those older games.

It also took me over 5 hrs but i was pretty shitty at a few the games. It probably took me around 8 hrs. But besides that i think sonic ugc should be put in the 5-10 hr list because i was on another site where they were having a competition who can finish this game the fastest and the fastest time is at 5 hrs and everybody else had a time of 6 hrs or over. So if this is the case im sure the average person is gona be over 5 hrs.

So what happened to the abandoned list? I know Assassin's Creed, Call of Duty 2, and BioShock used to be on the easy list at one point and now they are not there. Shouldn't they go in the abandoned list?

I would argue that AC and Bioshock belong on the quick list as you can get 900+ out of both in under twenty-five hours. If you are willing to skip some of the collection achievements in either game, then they are very doable in the alotted time.

EDIT: I checked and all three of these are still listed under the 15-25 section.

Bioshock, including the Brass Balls and Collection achievements, can be done in the 10-15. I wouldn't put COD2 on the abandoned either as you can do it in 10-15, which needs to be moved to that section. AC can be done in 20-25 hour section. It's very close to being over 25 if you run into problems.

The new Disney Sing It! could be added to the 5-10 hours section. I started playing the game last night around 9 PM Central time and I've already 1k'd it since the achievement list is basically the same as the first Disney Sing It!. Game is just as easy as the first.

It's called Disney Sing It! High School Musical 3: Senior Year.

I'm not arguing for or against them, I just noticed they did not make it to this new list.

Did they get added in later on? I swore I copy pasted the list into an excel spreadsheat and AC, BioShock, Bionicle Heroes, and COD2 where not on there.

They were there originally when Perp did the list; I'm assuming Roxy copied his when she created the new thread.

X-Blades fits in the 5-10 hour list.

If I can do it in just under 8 hours, while recovering from surgery, then anyone can do it that fast. :-)

Can anyone here vouch for Marvel Ultimate Alliance?

Finding it a real chore to get points in so far, also some of the simulator disc missions are very tough to get golds in. Might have to just get 700 or so in this one and be done with it.

It depends. If you do it legit, you're looking at over 25 hours easily.

However, if you know someone that has save files at certain pionts in the game, you can join their co-op game on XBL and rack up around 750 points in less than a couple of hours.

I second this as well. For instance, I knew someone who has maxed out characters and was on the final mission on hard. All you need to do is start a new game with all these characters and it should be a piece of cake from there.

i for one, don't agree with ultimate alliance being easy simply because isn't using somebody else's save almost the same as gamesaving?

i mean you can argue that since its an internal means of cheating it is legit, but either way you look at it, you're still not using your own save file.

Ultimate Alliance may take a while but I thought it was totally worth it. I can't wait for the second one.

i mean you can argue that since its an internal means of cheating it is legit, but either way you look at it, you're still not using your own save file.
You're joining someone else's Live co-op game, that's far from "cheating". You don't have to save their save file, simply just join their game. By that logic if I join co-op with a friend to beat a certain Halo 3 level on Legendary, that's also "cheating" since I'm not using my own save file.

oh my mistake, i didn't know you could get the achievement in co-op. i thought i remembered reading that you had to join a co-op game and save the game on your HD. and plus i remember seeing plenty of threads being locked because of people asking for or offering their save before doom on hard... so why is that? if you are indeed right, i don't see anything wrong with it.

You can do that. I've done it for someone else before. The reason being is because it's apparently equivalent to gamesaving. Regardless, even if you don't do this little thing, you can do the original 1000 under 25 hours. It does take quite a while though, and can get pretty boring.

Another reason is you're supposed to save those kind of requests/offers for the achievement trading thread and not make a new one. It's no different than any other forum where a new thread asking for boosting gets locked.

But it's just not Doom you can do it for, if someone has a save right before they fight Mandarin or Loki, or before they speak to Jean with Cyclops or anything like that, you can do all of those on XBL co-op. That's why if you can find someone to boost with, this is really a short game outside of the gold discs. But with that, there is a FANTASTIC faq out there on the interwebs that'll absolutely get you a gold on every single mission in no time flat.

But that is a rare thing to find someone with all those save points, so I'm not disputing or trying to argue that Ultimate Alliance should be put on a shorter time tier but I'm just saying it CAN be done much quicker than one would think.
