It's one of the first questions a gamer asks these days: "how long is it?
Those who ask typically aren't into multiplayer (at least, not for the particular title in question), and want to make sure the experience is worth the $60 investment. Well, although you'll have to wait a while for Deus Ex: Human Revolution , length won't be a negative when it arrives. In fact, it's going to be a big highlight: in speaking to PC Gamer UK , the highly anticipated Deus Ex title will take around 25 hours to complete. Added producer David Anfossi:
"So far with them playing about six hours every day, most of them don't complete the game.
The ones that are more casual gamers, who are used to more 'corridor, cut-scene, corridor, cut-scene' type of gameplay – they play it that way for a while. Then suddenly, there's this new world that opens to them, and they start getting a bit more creative."
Actually, to those who are familiar with the franchise, this doesn't come as a big surprise. As these are action/RPG hybrids with a firm focus on character building and storyline, such adventures normally last much longer than your standard action or shooter title. I believe it took me a good 30 hours to beat one of them…might have been Invisible War .
But anyway, don't you worry about length when it comes to Human Revolution . Let's just hope the gameplay itself is worthy of your money.
