Just managed to complete ACB 100%. Yeah, I know it's too late compared to most of you guys here, but I still can't stop feeling badass. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif
Anyway, this made me think of something. How much of gameplay time does ACB give on average if you attempt to do everything?

31:23:31 as of when this screenshot was taken, and that's almost just after getting 100% sync. Around 31h:20m to get 100% sync in my case, I guess.
How about all of you?

Quite honestly, I never noticed and I deleted my first save long ago, ironically by accident. :\

I'll tell you after I get 100% on a new save.

Getting 100% synch in ACB isn't fun, it's a chore.

It was some months ago, but I think it took me around 26 hours to finish ACB, Da Vinci Sequence and all achievements, basically all that could be done in the game.

Lame if you ask me. It's a challenge for a game like GTA:IV to finish the main storyline under 30 hours (Liberty City Minute Achievement), not to mention 100%, but it's a different type of game i suppose.

Still, much more could be done with ACB.

I generally get about the same amount of time, but that's mostly because I complete everything before moving on, so that means my first 9 recruits are all full-fledged assassins before the start of the first memory after first getting them.

I completed 95 % i renovated all the shops almost got all the flags got all the feathers got all the paintings, all the weapons except the ones you could get from shop quests. got all the view points etc..... but i never managed to complete it 100%. With ACR i won't be playing ACB so much anymore. But congratulations with your 100% !!! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/clap.gif

You sure you did all the Courtesan, Thief and Mercenary side missions? There should be 10 for each guild.

I'm gonna have to agree. I think it was a good idea on paper but is just annoying in the game.

Yeah i did these ones but didn't get 100% synch on all of them.

I am only at 89% (maybe 90 though cause I got some flags before I logged off) and I have been playing for 44 hours.

Then again, I don't TRY to get 100%.

You sure? They need to be triggered by talking to the respective guild leaders (3 times per leader in total) and quite often it's not noticed because the icon showing that there's another set of memories available is almost identical to the guild symbol on the map.

I have about 70 hours on my main save, and I'm at about 95% sync... I might even give the tank mission another try before ACR's release, it's hard to find any time though.

Yeah i'm sure i did all of these missions. And you are right with the thief missions you never know if there are any new missions available but i just go to La Volpe after i beat the missions to see if he has got anything new.

I completed 100% myself so I'll see how long it took me. All I know is, it took me a while to get that annoying Tank side-mission finished.

I'm at 82%, not sure how long i've been playing, but i'm sure it's over 30 hours.

Reason for 82% is i didn't collect all the lair of romulus flags, didn't (couldn't) full-synch the timed lairs (halls of nero, wolf in sheeps clothing, and the other one that's timed), can't even complete Mal Practice Courtasan mission (let alone full synch, so i've just given up on it entirely), failed full synch on tank and flying machine mission, and haven't really tackled the theif missions. And the reason for that is....

I. Hate. Races.

Besides that, everything else is done. Oh, and i haven't done the two templar lairs either (and I won't, they're chase missions, I hate those too)

The one race where you have to use the smoke bombs is just terrible... Especially when you're stubborn as hell and you even rarely remember of smoke bombs and how useful they actually are. :\

What race? You mean the second ACB thieve mission race? You don't have to use smokebombs there. You can just ignore the guards, or maybe push them away to avoid them shooting at you. There's also the option of sending your recruits to deal with them.

From personal experience, the recruits take too long to act. Also, if you fail full sync upon your first attempt, you have to wait for the assassin recruits bar to fill up. Ignoring the guards feels like some sort of wild card, since some times it works, some times it doesn't. Smoke bombs is by far the most effective manuever in my opinion.

Meh, I've never used smoke bombs to finish it. I guess it would work, but I don't like wasting them on a rooftop guard. I usually just run past them.

Those aren't necessary.

Timed missions are still annoying, anyway. I hate those too. Especially the timed lairs of Romulus. Just couldn't let myself give up, though. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Yeah the 100 % sync for the races were sometimes a bit.. absurd? Especially one of the last thief races.. ugh omg.

I got to 100% last week. It took me 44 hours, and honestly I expected it to be much more because I was goofing around a lot. Now I only have a few achievements to complete
