Kaos has told CVG that you can expect the campaign of Homefront to last anywhere between eight hours and a full day - and admitted that it's taken a whole lot of influence from Valve's Half-Life.
Thats short. I hope it will be worth the 8hrs.
I went to a party, it was good, but at 4 A.M everyone had either left or fallen asleep, this is pathetic imo, so I pulled out the hosts PS3 and defeated MW2 by the time they woke up at 8 a.mm
8hours is not bad at all. As long as it is well done all the way through.
@mrv321 pathetic indeed xD
8 hours is short? Since when? Most FPS are 6 hours long, multiplayer is where you'll get the moneys worth.
The point is this game was made for the single player...famous writer, trailers heavily relied on by story...8 hours is short, especially since all games cost $60 now!...
8hrs is kind of good for a FPS because for 8 hours you will be killing. i hope its not like MW series where its just all set pieces SP is all i am interested in with homefront so 8hrs don't bother me
I usually take my time with games. I don't blaze through any of my new purchases. I.e. I don't play it constantly until I beat it. I stop and enjoy the little things that make games special every now and then. It took my about twelve hours to beat Uncharted 2. So whenever I hear about an unreleased game's length, I add a couple of hours to that for myself.
For an FPS, that's a good length. The problem? We're really trusting what a developer says considering most often this is 20-25% longer than what it turns out to actually be?
Go play Medal Of Honor then say this is short. Rented MOH via Gamefly 3 hours to finish it on normal. Thas friggin short. Although I would like longer, 8 hours seems longer than the average campaign in FPS games nowadays.
So It's longer than Call Of Nooby.
It's longer than BLOPS+MW2 combines.
Man not that I disagree but your attempts at being witty are painful...
I really hope this game is good. I've been waiting for a shooter with a good story for a while now.
When you mean shooter you mean a FPS not a TPS, right?
for all you saying that call of duty is short, theres no way you could do it on veteran for the first time quicker than 8 hours. ive been stuck on one bit for several hours before. and i class myself as fairly decent at cod. So stop playing on easy and man up abit bitches.
CoD games on Veteran are more cheap then being hard though. The most common sections you get stuck at in BO when playing on veteran are against respawning enemies. CoD games are the worst at this.
@gdogg I think your missing the point...bra! The point is that whether you played them on easy or brutal difficulty, games always had at least 20-25 hours of CONTENT to play through. This doesn't count for areas that you have to play over and over and OVER again just so you can say the game is longer. I think you are either delusional or too young to remember older games, lol!
I was so excited to buy this day one!!! Now that I've found out it's only 8 hours long, I'm afraid I WILL NOT be buying this game anymore...this is soo sad...what happened to the normal 25 hour games?
I don't like 8 hours either, but most FPS, especially military shooters are always this long and shorter. I hate that FPS shooters are destined to be short but thats the way it has always been: every James Bond every COD every Medal of Honor every Halo every doom every quake (shit they stopped making single player for arena) every resistance every killzone etc. point is this is no surprise to anyone, I do not understand how you didn't see this coming. Yes there are exceptions, such as borderlands, but thats one of the few.
Homefront may be the refreshing shooter everyone is asking for, but... I highly disagree what it "wears Half-life on its sleeve".
Best be a good 8 hours, i expected it to be a little longer.
