Finally Square Enix has *one* thing going for them in the right direction. Albeit, the game isn't even being made by the SE team.

So, 25 hours for a straight run through with no side quests?
That seems reasonable enough...

My personal favourite games such as ACII and MGS 4 took approximately the same amounts of time as Deus Ex: Human Revolution will take...it's a really great amount of time for a properly developed and well-planned game.

I do expect that some game renters would feel hard done by longer hours of gameplay!

MGS4 and AC2 took around 15-20 hours to beat on average if it were your first time playing them.

Good I needed another long game

Only 25 hours?.. *sigh* Games that have been advertised for 40 hours could be speedran in 12.

@ ssbm freak: I think they're saying that 25 hours IS a speedrun in Deus Ex: Human Revolution.

Jiheishou DaigakushaI think that it's all speculation. As much as any of you hate me saying so the only way we'll know is when we play it ourselves. The length could have tricky moments where you spend an hour at several points trying to just figure out what to do, while I doubt that is the case we can't ignore the possibility. You can stretch a 50 minute game to 4 hours by using tricks like that or only dropping very subtle hints that the player is supposed to figure out.

ssbm freak I'm certain it will vary per person, regardless of what anyone says. After all, I've had buddies who rushed through lengthy RPGs (Fallout 3, Dragon Age, Fable) by ignoring all the side quests and world exploration, effectively cutting a 100-plus hour game down to 15 or 20.

@ ssbm freak: Although what you say is possible, I'm sure that the developers know about walkthroughs making it easier for the gamers who don't rush out and put down a pre-order.
