Planet Wisp Act 1 is a bitch to speedrun. There are a lot of places where you can mess up (or simply a Spike Wisp not working properly), but somehow I managed a 03:27:09 (XBLA) and are currently number 6.
Act 2 is even harder. I simpy don't understand which one is the fastest route.
trimmed my speed highway act 2 down to 1:36.02, I strongly believe I can get it down to 1:35.50 but while I am #1 I'm leaving it at that (on xbl), actually feel quite amazed that I have a top for something that I enjoy heh.
Next challenge for me is chemical plant act 2, at first I thought the layout would be a bit whack but the developers had speed runs on the mind when building it once you do some runs.

Well, took me long enough to upload it. While uploading I managed to up the record a bit to 1:43.71 but I'm pretty much using the same route in the video. Seeing how everyone's practically destroying Chemical Plant Act 2 and Speed Highway Act 2, I'm gonna leave the latter at 1:41.59 and call it a day. Being currently in the top 10 on steam (As lucky number 7 on all 3 modern stages so far) feels pretty darn good considering I didn't do speedruns in past games that much.
I need to get around to adding you guys on Live. I finally did 30-second trials in all the stages so now I have both times and scores for you guys to not see because my times are probably far away from yours on the list. Might as well post 'em for shits though. Spoiler'd 'cause of long list.

1:38:03 for Chemical Plant 2... could definitely get well into the 1:37 range if some of the more finer exploits weren't finicky as all hell. Like Crisis City before it, I'm totally burned out of this stage.

And I'm now 4th on Planet Wisp Act 1 with 3:50:77. Can't stop getting hit on some bits though...also spike being a bitch doesn't help.
2nd...1st guy is also European and has 3:12:15...would need to shave a whole 20 seconds off my time as I have 3:30:94. I'm cool with 2nd XD
Least you don't have to deal with FirstKirbyEver's 2:25 in Planet Wisp Act 1. I'm third with like 3:01 right now or something on the XBL version.
Wow, I'd never beat that...I'm now first on PSN though with 2:55:60
