    Finish the game in less than two hours.

    If you've already completed the original game, you probably won't have any problems with this - even if you get stuck on the puzzles and tricky walljumping.

    Be sure to be as fast as possible on the shapeshifter fights. Enemies will now run towards you and trigger a fight action, so just lure the enemy to the edge when he's in Warrior form. Roll under him, then quickly push him outside. He will then shapeshift and instantly run towards you. Defeat his rush attack, then pummel him until he falls off the edge.

    gazhibs ye but they also attack a lot more and for longer, so best to try and get a cheeky counter in there to start your attack.

    Mobius Evalon I'd like to add just a couple of notes for those who had the same questions/problems I did.

    Firstly, the achievement is based on playtime, not real-world time. I started the epilogue at approximately 11:00 and finished at 22:00 due to a constant series of distractions causing me to pause the game.

    The shapeshifter must be knocked off the edge when it assumes the warrior form (just like the enemy from the main game, a fact I had forgotten because I last played in February 2009) to make it transform into the hunter and be susceptible to damage. In the hunter form, it is very adept at countering so spam the Y button to get your digs in. You can also chain in a gauntlet launch and continue Elika attacks when he is airborne, just stay away from that sword.

    I managed this, "I only need a hand or twenty", and "All the frescos" in the same playthrough, while simply accepting half a dozen Elika saves early while I was still working my rustiness at the game out. I'm not certain how much playtime I spent going for "No time to waste", but it is certainly possible to roll all the above together.
