    This achievement requires that you complete the game from start to finish in 3 hours. Note that this is 3 hours on the game progress statistic (Shown when you save), not in real-time, so you can pause, save, load, leave, come back, etc without negatively affecting the time.

    Remember that you can skip most long cutscenes and dialogue by holding Y. Skipping most cut scenes and making a couple of mistakes will net you a time around the 2-hour mark, so you should have lots of time to spare.

    If you want to use a walkthrough just to seal the deal, I recommend this one:
    Monkey Island 2 Walkthrough on GameFAQs
    Dot-point, very short and to the point, making it easier to read while playing, full credit to Headrock on GameFAQs.

    EDIT: The above guide is missing the following step: At around step 16 in chapter 4, open the barrel beneath the parrot for the third cracker.

    Best of luck!

    MarcFisher58Thanks for the link. There is another step missing, at step 109/110 in Chapter 2 you need to pick up the distracted monkey or you'll end up doubling back at step 184.

    Complete the game with a finishing time of under 3 hours. Very easy to do, as long as you know what you are doing. I ended up with a 2:12:35 time at the end of my game, and that was after spending at least 5 minutes getting used to the new control scheme and a couple bathroom breaks. This achievement will unlock along with A True Pirate, Monkey Master, Free Thinker, and Turning the Lights Out, as long as those requirements are met also, at the end of the game.
    Use this as a walkthrough if you need help clearing the game within 3 hours.

    ezekiel 08The walkthroughs at this site are the best IMO. The colour coding really helps!

    I've used this video guide.
    With this video guide you will have no problem finishing the game in less than 2 hours.

    Thanks to Derek Lim for the video.

    Happy hunting!

    Broon43Fast guide, but some parts a little too fast! I had to rewind a bunch to see exactly what he was selecting, but still a good guide to the speed run. Thanks. +1.
