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.

Why the internet so far off?

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.
