Second Run-Through is always easier, I didn't know there was an achievement for 3h till I hit part 4 Happy with the 200G now though, classic game.

1 hours and 15 minutes, more or less. I was second on the leaderboard with a score of 271,019 last I looked, though it's possible that's changed by now.

5 hours 20 minutes.

Hell yeah. Not that I was trying to race through or anything. This game is too good to speedrun it. Also, the insult grinding was a bit tedious, and I left the game running for a while whilst browsing reviews for the game.

And no, it's not the first time I've played MI.

It's a shame they'd make an achievement to rush through this game because going through all of the dialog decisions is one of the things that make this game so great and funny.

I know my first play through is going to be over 3 hours for sure, even though I've played and finished this game on the PC many years ago.

First playthrough was more than 4 hours but I was getting a most of the dialogue.

I just finished my second runthrough for speed run and got 1:29:15 with points of 255,734, which makes me 17th on leaderboard...gives you some judgement on the top times.

F knows what my first run through will be .. as I havent played the game since I was young (bear in mind I hardly played it then) and I dont really know what I need to do perfectly to advance quick. Im gonna guess its going to be long. But I dont mind, I want to get the feel for the game and see every inch of it in its glory!

But I will definitly play it a second time to finish off any achieve's and speed run!

i had already put an hour and 40 minutes into chapter 1, so i don't think i'll be putting up an impressive number in this regard. i flew through most of act 1, but i also watched the cutscenes, enjoyed the various dialog, talked to spiffy, etc. the real time sink was that it took me FOREVER to get all the insults for that achievement. if i was smart, i probably would have just saved half way through, and not saved after getting all of them to shave off some of that time.

i think i can do somewhere around 2 hours on my second play through though

My first play ran well over five hours. After beating the game I got my ass in gear and speed ran about an hour twenty for the achievement.

1h 30m!!
I am a big fan of MI, I played it on my PC with ScummVM about 100 times!

A little question: I'm 109th in the leaderboard, but how the game give me the points? What criteria is used? Thanks!

I think I finished around 1.33-39, and I'm 119.

I think the points are awarded on the basis of "completion". Mixture of speed + things done? (aka destroying Sea Monkey gives you more points, picking up all the letters in Monkey Island too?)

It's a guess, though.

second run was approximately 1 hour 31 minutes, ranked 124th right now.

how do you tell what your exact time was? i did a save right after i sprayed lechuck with the rootbeer, but i don't know at what point during the ending the timer actually stops counting.

(also, on my speed run i finished off the achievements)

1st playtrough was about 6 hours, getting all but the "Human Cannonball" achievement.

2nd playtrough was 1h 30m, Rank 117 (out of 26005! yay! ), Completed 256561. I also don't know how they calculate the points... I didn't sink the Sea Monkey, and didn't collect any notes in Monkey Island.

Oh, and my first game to 100% the achievements!

Me too, and I think the timer automatically stops before the ending scene (you and Elaine with the fireworks) because the "Human Cannonball" achivement is achieved just before this scene.
