Finished with 7 hrs 13 mins, making it the shortest game I've played before. I did all but one side quest. Considering I spent a fair bit of time wondering around looking for screenshots I have to say its a bit of a rip off to be paying full price for a game this short. HL2 ep2 took me longer.

Quality of the experience matters more to me than length... Mirror's Edge was like 5 hours long, but it was such an awesome 5 hours for me that I would have paid double the price, easily.

Plus, 8-10 hours is average for an FPS... any longer and they grow tiring, like Doom 3.

Well when you click "bonus missions" on the 360 version it says something like "look here for bonus missions coming soon through Xbox Live"...

Sounds like single-player DLC to me. If PC gets an editor instead though, that could be cool.

I loved that with the Chrome engine it looked as good as it did but also the framerate was awesome. I would take this over Crysis anyday, I need frames!!!

Didn't find any configs where the LoD could be improved. Game needs it quite badly, especially in the free roaming "chapters".
