Will this game be as lengthy as metal gear solid games, even if its mostly cutscenes? i have no problem sitting through 30 minute cutscenes if they explain alot of the story, but im worried this might turn out to be one of those 8 hour long sugar rush action games
I don't expect the game to be long, but I hope it will be well divided in roughly 20 missions/chapters. I hate to have to restart a 30 minutes run because I messed up during boss fight.
It has an ingame save feature so you can pretty much save at whatever checkpoint you're at. If you call the chick in the demo she mentions that it autosaves your checkpoints but you can also manual save.
Bayonetta took me about 10 - 12 hours on my first playthrough, and I took my time and didn't get stuck anywhere. The preview on IGN(I believe it was from the Australlian IGN team) said that the guy was something like 6 hours in and was only roughly half way through if I remember right. There are 7 or 8 chapters and a Prologue chapter according to the achievement list leaked a few months back.
