it have been said in the PCgamer that Doom3 can be finished in 20+hours. how many hours the same magazine or another who have reviewed FArcry says it can be finished?

for comparison in Hl2 there are people that says the game will need 40+ hours to be finished..

20 hours is HUGE for a modern FPS. Every AAA FPS title released in recent memory has been less than 12 hours, with the exception of Far Cry.

20H sounds good to me !

I just want secret areas !!

Blink! " You have discovered a secret area! " :D

Painkiller had about 15 hours to just get through the game. All of it was gaming bliss! Then you can go back to get all of the cards, while still having a hell of a time. And you can look for the "You have discovered a secret area!" signs. Fun, fun, fun. :)

...hmm, I was hoping for more... 20 hours of Doom3 is going to go by really fast. :|

Far Cry wasn't that long either.... 30 hours? You could probably finish it in 15-20 easy.

If the mod community is anywhere as big as the original Doom's, we'll see alot of stuff..

exactly....id isnt dropping the ball with mod tools like crytek did with farcry, after we play the 20 hours of doom 3....there will be tons of mods being made to awe us, scare us, and fill us with enjoyment again. I agree 20 hours is...somewhat fast, but considering it always takes me 5 more hours to finish a game vs. what the mags say...I guess I cant complain .....HL2 will be 40 hours...but its gonna take 40 years to get released....at least doom 3 is gold and a reality

it'll probably take me a good week or two to finish. i work from 8-5 weekdays, and i go to bed at 10:30 to get up at 6:45. That leaves me with about 4-5 hours playing per day. Not to mention that just the perception of Doom 3 freaks me already.

I hate long games. I usually get sick of them but of course MUST beat them. 20 hours is perfect. 40 hours is WAY too long.

Mmm.. I dunno what my feeling is. If I'm enjoying a game, I love it to be long. But only if the quality is kept up. Like Baldur's Gate II. I would have loved for that to be many times longer.

It generally always dissapoints me to have that feeling of "well, it's coming to a close". Sorta like watching a good movie and thinking "****, not long left now...". Like for I, Robot. That was a great movie and I didn't want it to end so soon. Not sure why exactly though :)

Anyways... I'm sure I'll enjoy every minute of Doom 3. Well, I'll probably *hate* every minute of it, if it's too scary.. lol

I was thinking the same exact thing, BG2 was huge and I've still completed it many times. :)
