Why is this game supposed to be 100+ hours?

I'm planning on buying this game soon but while I have many other games to grind out I want to know, why is this game supposed to take over 100 hours? Which achievements are the ones that take so long to get? I just want to make sure and inform myself before I have to grind out another long game.

100 hours isn't actually that long, I'm on 25 hours and I've had it 3 days.

You need to get all characters, so about 50 characters and there is around a 1/5 of getting 1 after a mission. You need to collect over 20 special items from certain boxes on certain levels. There is 52 gaiden quests, they are extremely hard. & there's more

Ah ok thanks and also, if I was able to 1k DW6 and almost WO2 (Just proficiency grinding left for the most part) will this be much harder than those 2? And one last question, I saw that there were a few treasures that you get from online play. How many online matches are there and how long does that take itself? Will I be able to boost? Will I even need to boost if I wait around a month to buy this..etc.

Yes, this is the hardest and probably the worst out of all DW games.

Win VS matches is 10 battles.
Play with many friends is 10 friends.

Ah I see. Alright so if it's supposed to be the toughest one of all. Is it like rediculous, truly insane amounts of skill tough? Harder than SF4 tough? (The trials achievement) Or it's just a bit tougher than Chaos mode on DW6? Sorry for all of the questions. =P Just really curious about the game in general because it seems like they've changed/added a lot.

It's 100+ hours because I said so...

<<

>>

The main time consumers are with making all the weapons and getting all the officer cards. You can boost a certain amount with things like item duping, returning from cities at the beginning of a mission, etc.

If you know what to do in the game, and have people helping you on live, then I'd say it'd be more like 50-80 hours.

The actual game is hard in the beginning, but gets very easy once you complete one storyline.

See, I dont get what's with all the complaining and belly-aching about the time, I love this game franchise and I love this game, Im already 113+ hours in and I'm nowhere near 1K gamerpoints. The achievements are just extending this game's life for me, and when u really get into the game and all its rpg elements, time seems to fly by anyway.

Oh no no no I'm definitely not complaining about it at all. To be honest I really am just trying to learn about the game before I play it since I won't be able to buy it for a bit. This game is pretty much a must have already but I'm just waiting until I 1k a few more other games.

Actually this isn't the hardest, but may be most time consuming based on the random fact of obtaining officer cards. Everything else is pretty easy once you hit 50 and get used to the game.

50 hours to get 1000 in this game? Never. It took me nearly 20 alone to farm all extra items i didn't have in order to make every item in the game. Do not play online, it will take longer unless you have 3 very good dynasty warrior players who will devote around 40 hours to help you do your quests, and not expect you to do the same in return, good luck on that. At 76 hours I was done with everything! Except officer cards. I am now at 110 hours and I have one more officer card to get.. At 84 hours when I had checked, i was at 82%.

It's not the worst dynasty game, its just different and is quite fun. The longer you wait to get the game will do you no good, as people will stop playing eventually making the friend 10 people part harder. Get it ASAP its only 40 dollars

You don't need 10 friends, 10 random players will do just fine.

Alright cool, so I'm going to guess that the online is decently active? I was gonna wait on this game since I just bought Sonic and Sega All Stars last weekend but I'll go ahead and fork over the money this weekend as well.

Alright guys, I got this game yesterday and I'm loving it. It's a little tricky to get used to but it's definitely a step up. Although I think the lock on should be LT instead of clicking the RS down. Anyways about those 10 friends. Do I have to physically add them to my gamercard friend's list or what? I played a match with 3 guys and by there names said 1 under the friendship category. Do I do that with 10 different people?

Cool I got it just a little while ago. Great game but this difficulty is kicking me hard. I changed it to easy expected it to be original DW easy but no...not at all. I just played a bunch of missions with some guys online though and I hit level 20 so I'm hoping to actually see some single player progress.
