For a first play through Balla is bang on with it being about 30-40 hours then you throw in looking for items/upgrades and it could longer but overall it just depends on the persons play style.

Phew! I thought that seemed a bit short - I wondered what I'd been doing wrong!

Metroid Prime seems to be 15 hours from I can find from online but you two who have played it are saying 30 odd hours, that's a big difference.

Like I said it's all down to play styles, it definitely can be beaten in 15 hours or less but I wouldn't say that's average for a first play through.

Did you get 15 hours from HLTB, mas? I find that their estimates are usually on the short side. I seem to recall it being in the region of 25 hours for me but I didn’t try to collect lots of stuff - 68%, by the end.

They're one place I checked and my times are normally close to what's on there which is people's times put on the site much like user reviews on Metacritic, that people could fudge.

I did then look up after you saying 30hrs and seems to be around the 15hr mark, from what I can find.

I’m fully prepared to accept that my dyspraxic ass is slower at completing stuff than most other gamers. Thumbs Up!

I'm actually Zero's evil twin, Negative Zer- wait. Eh?

I also have a dyspraxic backside, but I think it's more that I go out of my way to complete stuff, collecting most if not all of the things.

I haven't yet started Wonder Boy The Dragon's Trap on the ol' Switch, but I am playing its arcade predecessor. Not actually the arcade version, but now I've got the Amstrad emulator working again, I'm playing through the CPC version. I'm playing an inferior port of a badly-dated arcade game. In preparation for playing a super-updated version of a timeless game. I probably shouldn't be alive right now.

Have been playing through the Streets of Rage trilogy - boy these games have aged well. I still prefer the quicker combat in the first game but it's alarming how much more effort went in to the second game. It's almost like a different series. Yet to play the third as I hear mixed feedback and I never played it at the time, but looking forward to it.

I've not played the third game, but the first two are crackers that do indeed stand the test of time. Banging soundtracks, too.

having dedicated the last 4 years to writing 150 SNES reviews and then since then havinig started to try to make youtube Video reviews of them all I play proberbly more retro games than Modern.. Recently I have been playing Spindizzy Worlds, Lobo, and Super Strike Eagle.

As for Streets of rage I own all 3 on megadrive and I actually think 3 gets dragged over the hot coals a lot more than it deserves, yeah its a lot worse than 2 but its not a bad game its just a bit of a fall from grace... if you haven't played them and want to play them in order of increasing greatness go 1, 3 ,2 and you wont be disappointed... In my opinion 3 needed to not be altered so much from its Japanese release and also needed a few more months of spit and polish because it has the mechanics of 2 but lacks the soul of 2.
