since people are getting the game early and are playing it, I just wanted to know how long the campaign actually is. randy posted that it's around 8-10hrs but devs seem to always exaggerate the length of their games. --- bet you didn't think you'd die today? SURPRISE!
Generally you'd just take the hours that the devs say the game will last, then divide it by 2.
Exceptions are Baldur's Gate, Planescape Torment, and Dragon Age 1. Their listed estimated hours is actually accurate.
Definitely more then 5 hour's. It's only 5 hour's if you play on easy and rush through. But, with that being said it isn't that much longer. I'd say on a harder difficulty trying to complete everything you'll be looking at 8-10 hours depending on your skill level with the game.
I think it may be shorter, depends how fast you go through the levels.. I seen in the book that there is 9 campaign levels.. But the levels look pretty big! But from what was told in IGN's interview and demo, each level may be 10 to 15 minutes.. Id go with 20 to half an hour, at least your first play through.. so yeah, about 4 to 5 hours.. --- The pacific demon
