So I just completed the main game in 54 hours. I used to smash everything possible and collect every stud in sight. I've learned that approach is a major unnecessary time suck. Now I complete the levels on story mode as quick as I can. I'll then use free play to capture true hero for each level after buying the multiplier bricks. According to this site people are completing this in 25-30 hours. Does using cheat codes shave off that much time?

Not sure what to say, I played for just over 30 hours and completed all the DLC in that time too.

I only used the 2x studs cheat which mainly helps getting the other multiplier bricks earlier, I had however played the game already on the 360 so I knew what to do for the most part with out spending time breaking stuff and figuring it out
Yours sincerely, TG

The 2x cheat code helps, if only to give that initial boost....

Play the game stories as quickly as possible.... don't buy anything...

Once your onto the freeway you'll have identified the Base chars needed - buy those seeking and only those... if there's a guide for the red, use that to plan the level order, then plough through levels maximising speed, collectibles etc... buy the 4x quickly then the other red bricks when doing so isn't going to cause lack of cash...
Then it's still very quick process of buying everything and any misc acjievements

I completed the game in 54 hours too but that included DLC. The estimated time doesn't include DLC.

Then it actually took me 60 hours for the base game. The in game counter says 60 hours so I subtracted a few hours for the DLC.

I have to work on a better approach. Thanks for the replies.
