How long is it? I am pretty excited about this game, but I don't want to spend $50 on a game that is only 5 hours long *cough*cod4*cough*.
How long is Dead Space?
"I've heard that it's a 12 hour game from most people."My first playthrough was 8 and a half, and my second playthrough is at about 3-4 right now, on the last chapter. Regardless, there's all the achievements to get, plus the game is solid enough to warrant multiple replays easily.
I was right at the 15 hour mark when I beat it on medium, but I rarely ran, explored every place I could, and paused the game several times to get up for food. Going through it in 8 hours sounds like bullshit (easy mode maybe), and if you did, you missed any kind of suspense or ambiance the game offers just to plow through it. I'd say if you liked the play and length of RE4, but want a dark sci-fi theme, this game is it.
CoD4 is short, but it was filled with action, and the game is far more successful for its MP anyway.
Man, how dare you underhandedly try and bash Call of Duty 4 in this thread. You weren't paying for a game with CoD4, you were paying for a ton of hours to be sucked out of your existence in multiplayer. I mean, if you don't play it online, then you must be a noob. Perchance, you additionally lack skills.
Anyways, go buy Dead Space. That is assuming that you possess the prerequisite skills.
You could always read Giant Bomb's review where they tell you the length. ;) By the way, COD4 is not 5 hours long. More like 10, maybe 8 if you're hurrying through it. Regardless, it has some of the best FPS single player I've seen in years, and quality over quantity, people!
Took me 8 and a half hours. I didn't rush at all. Looked in all the rooms, read some blood on the wall, played all the levels in the games, and I only checked a faqs for one 1 min part of the game. How any one could take 12 hours to beat it is beyond me.
Oh and that was on normal.
Curious though if time alotted would change anything later in the game. Maybe an extended ending?
(*seeing how the "ending" is just a jolt) Why leave things in suspense? Maybe a sequel?
That's my problem with games being so engrossed, just to take it all away at the end.
If there's a start, there must be a finish; its not a novel that just says "to be continued".
We know when a game is done, right when we see the credits.
If RE5 can push nearly 30 hours, I wonder what's the reason for Dead Space to be so short.
