Default Time Frame for Time Trials & Speedruns?

Ok, so I have completed the game on Normal & Hard, only trophies needed are Trial-related and Speedrun-related.

I do have 3 Stars on Playground One and have done the Prologue Speedrun.. I am just wondering what length of time do you think it takes to get all Speedruns done and get 90 Stars on Trials?

Obviously it varies from person to person, but just wanted to get a glimpse at how long it took people.

I just got 90 stars and it's taken me about 3 weeks of solid Time Trialling to get to that.

For the 90 stars, the minimum requirements are 3 stars on 24/33 of the courses, and 2 stars for the remaining 9.

A word of warning, it's not easy to get 3 stars on the courses - the only ones I found very easy were Playground 1 and Office. Some were quite tricky and others - well, let's just say a lot of swearing was involved...

So far;
Chroma - 2 (soooooo close to 3, but the wallrun, wallrun, wallrun, wallrun, jump halfway through it is ruining my patience!)
Playground One - 3
Playground Two - 3

I can see this will take some time but I'm committed and know I can do it so let's see how it goes.

Best way to get past that section is this:

Wallrun and move the analog stick left, then jump. Run forward a little bit, get to the checkpoint, then do the same for the next section. If you find that you're not quite making it with the jumps, then try coiling and you should get there. Don't try and do it all in one wallrun, I found it impossible.

Best of luck with it, hope it all works out for you

Thanks for the help man, just got it and this weeks WR for it

Not the best run @ 1:01, but I'll take the 3 stars - always feels so good once you accomplish 3 stars, doesnt it?

I never got the 90 stars as I dont have the DLC, but I didnt find the time related events required for platinum all that hard. The speedruns are rather easy if you know a few shortcuts and most of them can be done in one or 2 tries. There are 2-3 levels that may take you 30-40 minutes each but none should take you over an hour. Total time for the 9 speed runs should set you back about 2.5-5 hours depending on your skill level.

Time trials are rather easy if you are just going for platinum because you have a lot of wiggle room, espeically if you have the DLC. I got enough stars for platinum (without DLC) in around 2-3 hours. So combined for time trials and speed runs I would say you are looking at around 5-9 hours depending on your skill

I would say 5-9 hours if you're *really* good at this game and are a natural. I am mediocre at this game and it probably took me close to 10-15 hours just to get 50 stars. And that's with the DLC and it's wiggle room.

Think I got the same time as you

Thanks


Just to clarify here... is it only 50 stars you need to Platinum the game? Then the, 75 stars, 90 stars are just additional gold trophies?
