Timed Missions

From Atrocious Gameplay Wiki

Timed missions are missions in which the player must complete a certain objective within the time limit. They are infamous for making the players nervous and prone to rage quitting.

Why They Usually Suck

  1. They barely give the player enough time to complete certain objectives.
  2. The punishment for running out of time is often a Game Over or losing a life and having to redo the entire level.
  3. Some time limits don't make any sense.
  4. They can break the pace of the game for those who like to take their time and explore for 100% completion, as they can cause them to miss certain items.

The Only Redeeming Quality

  1. Sometimes, they are done right.

Examples

  1. Sonic Adventure 2 - Every fourth mission plus Green Forest, White Jungle, and Security Hall's first missions require you to complete the stage within anywhere from 2 to 10 minutes.
  2. Blow up Strip Mine Eco Wells (Jak II) - You have to drop one bomb into each of six spread out eco wells on the JET-Board within 2 minutes.
