hows it a joke im willing to pay £30 for this because i know despite the length the quality is good i have bought far worse games that were longer but crap and not worth near this much in price but people still bought it.
First off, the main campaign is 2 hours long and is infinitely replayable, if you just play games only to get to the end, THEN, don't buy it. Secondly, there are 5 extra missions, if these are 1 hour each, that's a 7 hour game witch also is insanely replayable, that's longer than Metal Gear Rising, a game witch I've gotten 60 hours out of. There are also challanges and leaderboards and if your not a new comer to this series, you know that this will last you a long time, despite this news of its short length. I can complete MGS2 in 1 hour 30 miniutes and I've gotten like 300 hours out of that game. I can say the same for the rest of the series too, people are selling this one real short and honestly if you've played the other MGS games and still don't have faith then your pretty paranoid IMO.
The 5 side ops are confirmed to last between 30min-2 hours each. A gaming journalist Tweeted that he played this game for 4 hours straight and at the end of the 4 hours, he only had 10% completion, according to the games loading screen. There is nothing to worry about, just be careful what you read, journalistic integrity has gone down the toilet and as with many things, we've seen a knee-jerk reaction to this game and they've turned it into a sensation. The jokes on you, you were tricked lol.
What game was due to come out? TPP? You are joking!? If it was due out, why would it need 2 more years funding? Komani aren't exactly short of money.
For £42 you can get a buggy Battlefield game...I know which game I would choose.
Game Informer screwed up by not properly clarifying and fans have just lied about it. Sure, focus on the 2 hours thing, but not the fact they didn't finish the game in the 4 hours they had.
The latest information we have is that the game takes 6-8 hours to complete all the missions, without collecting and completing all the challenges...on NORMAL difficulty. So what does it take on "extreme"!?
And journalists have been playing an unlocked version, so the don't have to collect the XOF patches like we do.
I agree with swinster, depends on your playstyle really too. On another note if I was going to bash a series I say COD with it's annual development with how short AND expensive it is, now this is a cash cow. Seriously though what is with the hate, there are many other short games out there but the Internets suddenly just went bananas =p
Long story short if you don't like it then don't buy it, your not forced to buy it, no use moaning to other people because of something you haven't played. Considering there are reports for the playtime where are the reviews? Kinda stupid placing judgement on this so quickly when only GameInformer had access to it.
I on the other hand am glad we are actually getting a taste of whats too come considering the time since the last metal gear release and god knows how long phantom pain will be considering it's going to be much bigger than GZ.
A lot of people inc the media pre judged this game early based of a speed run and media getting people to believe that's how long the game is proves how fickle some people can be, It's not a demo the 2 hours is for story which is 8% of the Game it's been proved recently it will be 6-8 hours long if you do the side quests with dlc on the way for this game as well and if you complete the game you get DLC for the phantom pain so go to the gaming forums on IGN or Gamespot Trolls your ill informed views are not welcome here
It's not as short as you think it takes 6-8 hours to complete every thing on this title which is longer than most full price games (COD, Battlefield 4 well most FPS single player) i get it you don't like this game but you are pre judging this based of a speed run article of the main story quest besides £23 on shopto for a game that's nearly 8 hours and has dlc for the phantom pain to unlock as well as dlc being made for this game on the way is quite a good deal, I'd rather spend £23 on this than £45 on game that has no single player only multiplayer which you have to get a Xbox live gold membership to play" cough" titanfall
