It takes you like 50 hours. But one Tip. Do not do all these meaningless MMO like fetch quests. Just follow the main story line and if you are to low level do these side missions.

Ni no Kuni even I think it is a really boring game had much better sidequests than Xenoblade. And Xenoblade is not that hard. I think you should be fine by not doing all of these 600+ sidequests. Just do the Colony ones.

@bcooper21: The game can take 50 hours, or over 100 if you want to do as many quests as you can.

:(

That is why I love digital games these days: But yeah the US prices are terrible. In Germany oyu can still get it for 50-70 euro.

About 70 hours too long. I've beaten ever ps1 and ps2 JRPG there is and I fucking hate this game.

It's by far the most boring/uninteresting game I've ever played.

I... have a confession to make. After 20 hours, I dropped out of the game. I couldn't bear hearing THIS IS THE POWER OF THE MONADO even once more. I took the disc out and... sold it. Along with Pandora's Tower and Last Story.

I truly only miss Pandora's Tower.

@klei: You gave up really early, didn't you?

@bcooper21: You will never be lacking in quests in Xenoblade. I feel like they designed it with an over-abundance of tasks just so you could be free to pick and choose what you want to do. Just don't do the ones that don't look like fun to you, and proceed through the game by your own whim.

Personally, I had fun with the quests, but even I would decide I'd been in one place long enough, and move on. I just made sure I hit all the time-sensitive ones marked with a clock.
