there's no way it could possibly be a good game if it's that short. every shooter should be at least 30 hours to help with the quick pace the genre is known for.

I've never played it, but I don't think it will be short. The orange box contains Half-life 2 (which I'm assuming is the entire original game) + Episode one + Episode two + Portals + Team Fortress 2 (All for the price of one game I might add). I'd imagine that with all of that stuff combined, there will be at least 30 hours worth.

It sounds well worth it to me.

to all of those that claim that 360 games aren't good because they aren't extra long.

But it was worth every second. They really love to mess with your head in this game. I can not wait. Preordering today along with Mass effect and bio shock. SWEET

I am gonna get the black box for my PC, the first Half life 2 episode was short and i really do hope that the second it longer and better. Can't wait to play Portal and Team Fortress.
