Wouldn't it be more fun to figure it all out on your own, or is the game really that hard?

I kinda finished the game 100% and I'm playing it in hardcore mode now. My guess is that it's more to give exposure to the game after some website made a trolling review of it. Cox said the game was 18 hours long, IGN said 6, I'm at 18 and counting: who is a gamer supposed to believe?

@DePapier IGN is given too much importance by most people. I mean, I normallu dont like discussing games in scores, but when someone else discusses like this with me, they normally use the IGN score only as an absolute score. Not metacritic or game rankings, or more than just one page, just IGN.



ArkOne77 said:

Yeah. IGN must've skimmed the Mirror Of Fate cliff notes for their review cuz I'm 18 or 19 hours in too.

I beat at a 100% and it took about 20 hours. I am not the best at these so I can definitely see it taking a little less, I find it hard to believe only 6 hours unless they were replaying it after leveling up. When going back to get a 100% it was definitly easier to play through the early levels with max HP, Magic and all the attacks unlocked.

100% on Hard mode, time was about 14 hours. I can easily see them reach the Credits if they rushed through it on Normal, though.

If they hid the upgrades, etc. in better places or didn't mark them on the map for all the world to see, getting to 100% would've easily taken longer (and felt like less of a chore).

Already completed the game 100% and barely remember it. Barely remembering the game means that it didn't leave a lasting impression on me and this game sure didn't. If you need a strategy guide for this game, then you really shouldn't have picked it up at all. Part of the fun is figuring it out on your own - the definition of an adventure.

I completed it 100% in a dozen hours: I liked it a lot even if the final "surprise" was telephoned like two hours into the game. The main difficulty was finding which moves were best with the various enemies (hint: bat-stun the fleamen squad ), and I actually like to discover such things by myself... usually

I beat the game at 100% in 15 hours. I was so addicted to this game. I wish the game would've had online co-op or some StreetPass features. I think it'd be fun to co-op with a friend as Simon and Alucard, and battle Dracula or just play through the game.

I'm stuck at the damn Reaver boss. I took a break after many failed attempts to beat him. I do love the game though. I guess I'm the only one struggling to complete it.
