Don't worry about the amount of time you can clock into a game; "bang for your buck," in my opinion, is all about the experience you get out of the game. You may very well effectively be paying $2.00+ per hour to play this game but it's worth every penny. I'd say you'd be hard pressed to find a game that challenges in ways that this game does. Unless you're gaming on a really tight budget, don't pass this game up.
