"A little on the short side. 10-15 hours." In those days that was a short game. We've come a long way with shortening our campaigns.
Ever since i played the demo, i am attached to it. Its a very good game, it was the first adventure role playing game which induces me to start playing other adventure games. Although its relatively simple and a bit childish (you can tell from the setting itself), Its fluent game play, impressive display of cartoon like graphics and good story telling makes the game worth to play
@pongley & Zevvion Yeah, with each genre there is an expected set of length for it. Considering RPGs are incredibly slower paced games one would need to give the player some time to feel the game before completing it. 30hrs plus is standard for those. It's been a while since I've played a shooter other than Half-Life 2, but I find those games to be the shortest. With Action/Adventure games like this one I expect it to be a little shorter than a RPG, but not something like a shooter. All in all it depends on once you get to the end of the game you either feel satisfaction or a thirst for more and it changes from genre to genre and game to game.
@cort12 people keep saying that, yet I haven't played many games this generations that are less than 12 hours long. Then again, I'm not really a gamer that plays allot of shooters. Maybe it's just limited to that genre?
@Tyralyon: Well, personally I really disliked the review. I prefer by far the more simple and oriented reviews of gametrailers to the long and far too deep reviews of the story like this one. I've been on gamespot for years and I've known Jeff's reviews. I also known the giantbomb.com website that he made after quitting gamespot, but I think that his reviews are over rated by far! Anyway, I suppose that all of this is personnal in the end.
10-15 hours is actually a little short for a single player only game. don't forget that COD and Halo have online multiplayer. btw the visual design is just incredible in this game.
Ahhh the good old days, when 10-15 hrs was considered "short" now it['s surprising if a game takes more then 6-7 hrs to complete.
Never played this but might pick up the soon-to-come HD version on 360. But this review reminded me how incredibly stupid CNET was for firing Jeff. Hands down the best reviewer GS has ever had.
Very good puzzle/action game for people of all ages, with a very healthy and well-articulated undertone of civil disobedience and anger at the system.
10-15 hours those were the good games that didn't rely so much on friggin multi-player God I miss story driven games like this.
I wish Ubisoft cared about this game to patch it enough to be playable on pc.Have had it for pc for 5 years and it's still unplayable just as much as the day I bought it.
It's testament to the quality of this game that people come back to the review, just to get a little taste of it, years after they finished the game itself. You can tell because everyone's being annoyed by adverts for different products they've pushed on Gamespot over the years. I'm being hassled to buy Panasonic's Viera TV! I'm not going to!
@playeroftau Except this game is single-player only and CoD and Halo are primarily multiplayer games
lol "the game is kind of short only 10-15 hours." Man now with COD, Halo, ect. that's average to long for single player
almost every game I've seen this guy review, he just seems so not into it?? he makes even my most favourite games sound drab and boring when he reviews!
this is like my favorite game and i don't know if it was just my young age when i'd play this, but it felt like a really long game to me...
this game is so childish from the looks of it. i hope the second one would take a more serious turn.
This game is a lot of fun, I always needed to take pictures of every creature in the game heh, one of my favorites and I cannot wait for the sequel.
