Fast Play

Finish the game under 5 hours   

*Missable*. As it says, finish the game in under five hours. Should be the last achievement you get, on the second play through. Once you’ve done the game once and know what to do & where to go, do it again without going for bonus points or examining unneeded objects. Also, when you get cut scene videos hit Start and select "skip video" to save time. You can check how much time you have left by saving your game to see how much you’ve used up. The achievement pops when you reach the main menus AFTER the final cut scene video AFTER the unskippable credits. Therefore, try and make sure you have some time in hand before finishing the last part prior to the credits. Good luck!

Just a few tips for faster progression (I managed to finish the game in 3h 15min this way):
- use a game guide (for example
- skip cut-scenes by pressing START and selecting SKIP VIDEO
- skip dialogs by pressing the A button repeatedly
- skip the credits after the last cut-scene by pressing the B button

Okay so I have a couple of additional tips to go with Comment #1:
(Btw I used the guide that Comment #1 suggested)
- Once you completed the game the first time I would recommend going for this achievement straight after while the knowledge of what needs to be done is still fresh in your mind.
- Pausing the game (Using the Start button) and checking the status of all your 'Quests' (by pressing Left Bumper) does not count towards the total time played throughout the game.
- Pause the game often! Whenever you need to check the next step in the walkthrough make sure you pause the game.
- Follow the walkthrough guide but whenever there is a mention of "Bonus points" don't bother following that part in the guide.
- Read ahead in the guide to see where to go next. As mentioned above you don

As mentioned above you don't need to bonus points for this achievement and at times the guide tells you to go to places that you only need to go to for bonus points thusly wasting time.
- At the beginning of each chapter you play as Sam you might want to visit the Black wand Magic shop straight away and gather as much supplies as it allows before attempting the 'Quests'.
- When needing to travel to another part of the game map you can fast travel there by pressing "Right bumper" this saves you having to walk out of the area your in through all the sections until you make it to the main exit! Using this feature I feel will save you loads of time!

I hope this addition to the tips serves you well!
