    How many hours is the main quest?

    How many hours is the main quest with sidequests on top of it?

    See that hole in your wall?
    My first play-through came in at just under 30 hours doing all the side quests I could find, and playing on the easiest difficulty. Finished the game with level 48.

    After beating the main quest can you go back and do all the side quests?

    Took me about 15-20. I didn't do all the side quests because they got redundant towards the end, but I did a majority of them.

    And when you beat the Main Game you can restart with a New Game+. Otherwise you have to use a save before you finish the main story to finish everything up.

    Not really.

    But there's a point-of-no return:
    It's when you land on Ilos. So if you need to finish up side quests, do it before Ilos.

    Also, there's a New Game+ where you can start a new game with your previous stats and items. So you have a chance to get to level 50 for the achievement if you couldn't get it the first time.

    Crap. I just landed on Ilos. Oh well. My second play-through will be of exploration and side quests. So Ilos is the last mission?
