Yeah sure......trust me it's still 10HRS. The developers own words 10HRS game-play now this is Sony and Sony Sites trying to save face.
If you can find me a quote where the developers say that the game is only 10 hours long, I will leave this site for good.
Trust you over a dev... OKAY!
They said OVER 10 hours great way to miss it fanboys great way to concentrate on only the 10 part. you xbots are getting lame.
So? Uncharted lasted 10 hours too, but those were 10 hours to remember, oh and yeah it won GotY too. On that note, what DO you remember about Halo 3 besides playing Power Rangers with guns? Nothing else? Thought so
Halo ODST and MW2 were 4-5 hours MAX Ten bucks says you haven't even played either previous God of War games either.
no the developer's own words were "10 is longer, but not considerably longer"
The last two games were 6-8 hours so if GOW3 is a similar time wouldnt it also be 6-8 hours or am i reading the quote wrong.
You're either trolling and failing, or you were just REALLY damn good at GOWII. GOWII took me 17 hours to beat.
I think he's talking about the previous two "COMBINED".
@swiftshot93 Im not that great but i know the game was shorter than most and you obviously couldnt be trying that hard if it took you 17 hours. @snipermk0 No he isnt or he would have said. Seems to me like the author misunderstood what was said.
15-20 hours is straight out of Sitg's mouth: "It’s a difficult question to answer right now because we are still “testing” and may change, but I imagine it would last about the same time that lasted for the previous two chapters (15 to 20 hours depending on difficulty level)."
It says 15-20 hours. Do you need more help deciphering that?
I don't remember either GoW1 or 2 being less than 10 hours on normal difficulty. You might want to try playing the games first. edit: @nskinnear, the part of a quote that's in brackets isn't quoting what he said. It's added to fill in the slight gap in information according to whoever is making the quote.
While I agree that Omega4 is being a little zealous claiming GOW1 and 2 to be merely a couple of hours long, I do understand his point. The quote from the director could be taken 2 ways, and clearly Omega4 took it as meaning that each gow took 15-20 hours so Gow3 does as well. His concern came from that fact that each GOW clearly does not long quite as long as that (unless you're taking your time which is no problem) so he though GOW3 would actually be slightly shorter. That said, GOW3 will be epic.
GOWI took me 10 hours. GOWII took me 13 hours. GOWIII is meant to be in between...so I expect 12 hours. Not 15-20...but hey, it's good they've got plenty of content.
Seeing as this is the last of Kratos I would assume this is accurate.
OMEGA4 a troll?? omega4 trolling ps3 posts??? really.. who would have thought.. /s
Gow 1/2 took me 10 hrs each pretty good length but most of the time when dev/reviewers say the games length im under by like 2 hrs seems like they always say its longer than it is.
Well, yes, I did take my time. But I dont think it would have made a large difference. The game normally takes about 12-15 hours to beat on normal, and Omega is exaggerating by saying GOWII was 6-8.
still i wonder if there will be okami long game :) 50h of awasome gameplay :)
some puzzles take about 5-10 minutes to figure out and then about 20 tries to get it done right... 8-6hrs? you suck at lying.
There is no way God of War II took you 17 hours? What was so difficult that it took you 17 hours?!
GOW2 took me 13 hours and I can't remember how long is GOW. Omega4 may want to play both games first before commenting on how long they last.
The last two games were 6-8 hours so if GOW3 is a similar time wouldnt it also be 6-8 hours or am i reading the quote wrong. Halo ODST was 4-5 hours long at most... so does that mean Halo 1's playtime is 4-5 hours? Or Halo: Reaches? NO. Because sequels only dictate the genre and thus create the broad range of playtime and NOT the exact one. So yeah. I believe it's fair for me to say EVERY halo game past and present takes 4-5 hours to complete singleplayer? Oh and BTW you CAN complete Halo 3 in like 1 hour 15 minutes... does that make Halo 1 and 2 1 hour 15 minutes? Does that make Halo: Reach 1 hour 13 minutes http://www.highspeedhalo.ne...
I assume that the author made a mistake some where, no problem, well it kinda is, anyway I also heard GoW I and II were short. But I'm sure III will be longer hopefully the developer isn't lying about it being 15-20hrs. since they need to wrap up Kratos's story.
All kidding aside, that's about what I'd expect anyway. Game should be pretty epic! Man, March is going to be great, and yet suck at the same time with all the money spent!
wow omega you really didn't enjoy the game did you? Just rushed through everything as fast as possible =P READ. 15-20 HOURS. sounds about right to me =D i will take my time and enjoy ever single hack and slash i dwell unto the flesh of the weak!! =3
GoW1 and 2 each took me 8 - 9 hours on the first playthroughs. I NEVER listen to devs when they give a time range. It's usually way off, and seems like it was aimed at nubs. GTAIV was said to last 100 hours. I 100%'d it in 44. MGS4 was said to last 30 hours. Took me 18 without skipping cutscenes.
I'm as excited as anyone else for this game, but devs ALWAYS pad the running times of their games. Tim Schafer said that Brutal Legend would be a 15-hour experience, but the main campaign only took 8 hours. I think GoW III will be more like 10-12 hours, personally.
...and grow some chest hairs.
GTA4 So then you got everything , and killed every "flying rat" and did everything in the game (dates included to get 100% in 44 hours ) that's a pretty normal time IF YOU KNOW WHERE TO GO . Had you been exploring i do think you would have spend more time in GTA4 ... SO you cleared MGS4 in 18 W cutscenes ...but what about the other emblems ? Don't dare tell me you got every emblem in such a short time .. My point is this ... : Everyone play differently but unless you're some kind of god ... you'll never be off by more than a couple of hours .. So there are 4 possibilities : - either you rush your games 100%( like a god player ) and thus don't enjoy them - either you rush your games and thus have missed quite a lot of things to do ( or you don't try to enjoy them by using faqs to complete them ) - either your perception of time is different from the rest of the people -or either you're lying ..
Its just impossible to spend 6-8 hours on gow2. Maybe on very easy its possible(if you know all the puzzles and exactly where to go) but dont take my word for it: http://answers.yahoo.com/qu... http://answers.yahoo.com/qu... http://answers.yahoo.com/qu... It took me 16 hours to finish god of war 2 on hard(i kept dying) with all challenges completed. I have to add that in part of those 16 hours i tried 2 hours of Titan mode until i gave up. TITAN mode is impossible!! I fully expect this game to be around the same time as god of war 2 (10-15 hours)for completion but trophies, highest difficulty setting and more challenges will extend it to greater than 20 hours of playtime for me.
Said it last week,i've been gaming for 20 odd years and I feel dirty if I don't start on the hardest difficulty.So I know this will eat up time. regarding the first comment. I've only played 2,but if you die and reload a checkpoint it wont record time played until the next save.So I may play 6 hours,then die for 2 hours against a boss and give in.When I load again it says 6 hours,despite the fact I played 2 hours on top. So you never get an accurate time stamp.
@Omega4 Pal, there are more Difficulty Modes than [MORTAL] lol On-Topic Awesome news, 15-20 Hours of Amazing Single Player Experience instead of a 5-6 hours co-op game like is usual nowadays GOW3 = BEAST
There is no way you beat gow 1 and 2 for the first time in 6 hours. I've recently beaten them again (collection) and the first took about 9.5 and the second about 12 hours. Anyone who beat it in 6 hours is either lying or god of gaming. In Omega4's case, being the ________ that everyone here knows he is, and the fact that he doesn't really play games and just trolls, I have to say it is the former.
First one took me just over 15 hours and I was rushing to beat a friend who was also playing it. Needless to say I lost by 5 minutes. For those of you saying you beat it in 6-8 are probably talking about your best times and even then I doubt it. Funny thing was that during the closing sections of the game I wished I hadn't rushed so much. I should have went back and actually played it. You know walk around more to explore every nook and cranny.
Anyone who says they finished GOW 2 is 6-8hrs is lying on first play through .... Considering you already knew all the puzzles and didn't die once .... Took me 10 hrs on the first GOW And a little over 15 hrs on GOW 2 I expect GOW3 to be a bit longer than its predecessors , this game is gonna be amazing so either way .....
@1.24 - They never said anything about getting all emblems in MGS4. They said it would take 30 hours to playthrough, and I did plenty of exploring. Beat that damn game a dozen times, got it down to 3 and a half hours on normal towards the end without cut scenes. Also, the only stuff I used a guide for in GTAIV was the flying rats and jumps. Everything else I found on my own. 100% REQUIRES you to explore outside the main quest. To all the other skeptics thinking it's impossible to beat GoW2 under 10 hours (lol): I bought the game when it launched, booked it back to my house, popped it into my PS2, and didn't flinch until it was complete. Took a little under 9 hours. Multiple playthroughs after the initial one were as short as 6.
i got 100% in gta 4 that's why i argued ... and the times they said where for to get everything ( in both GTA4 and MGS4) but in GTA4 you cheated so of course you would spend less time in it ...
So you're saying they meant it would take 30 hours to get all the emblems? Cause that's ridiculous. Even after my 12+ playthroughs, I didn't get all the emblems. They said it would take 30 hours to play through the game, not anything about emblems.
i often feel that pacing and content are more important than game length. Case in point - Darksiders. It took me slightly more than 17 hours to get 90% of the trophies (minus those you have to grind for) on apocalytic difficulty yet i would have preferred if they have kept it under 15. There's just isn't enough content to be stretched out over 17hrs and it gets really repetitive. It also left me with no desire to play a second time.
and play halo
Raf1k1: that's possible...but I've had a look at the interview, and it's not entirely clear. It's included in Stig's quotation.
It usually isn't very clear which is why people have to fill in the gaps themselves according to what they think the person being interviewed actually means. The problem with that is that it's what the interviewer thinks the interviewee is trying to say rather than what he/she is actually saying. That's why so many people end up getting mislead so often.
this info saying god of war 3 is "in between" the other 2 in length. They said along time ago multiple times that it will be the longest god of war.
GOW did have a trophy for beating the game in under 5 hours. So yes on easy it is only a few hours long. But I would love to see someone beat it on the hardest setting in 5 hours or less.
if you try to just go as fast as you can, not looking around to find all the upgrades and such ( most games ) you can beat pretty fast. There are paths in GOW1 and GOW2 that leads you to upgrades and where you have to fight guys and back track, skipping all those paths will make the game go by faster
GOW is definitely that kind of game, that everyone want to try on a harder difficulty after finishing the game + there will be surely challenge mode missions so 15+ hours is pretty realistic for this game.
Allroundgamer! where you been?
lol hi there, i was always here, just don't need to comment on every article :)))
if you play these types of games often, its not that hard to blow through. depends on how long the cut-scenes are as well. when i bought the GOW Collection i beat GOW in 6hours and a few mins. or like dmc3 i beat it in 4 hours. i cant recall my time for Gow 2. cut-scenes and how long it takes you to figure out the puzzles is how your time will run.
That's remarkable for a hack-and-slash. PRE-ORDERED! Who's with me?
Never played the first two games but ordered the God Of War collection on Sunday.(better late then never)and also will pre-order the third. The ultimate collection is very , very tempting.
I picked up the GoW Collection last month. That was my first time playing through the first two games, and I was blown away. GoW II still holds its own in graphics today.
.____........___...____ .____||......||.......____|| ||.........___||.......____|| 'Triple'A'Station 3' ;-P
Neither GOW I nor GOW II was short in length. Anyone saying otherwise don't know what they are talking about. Besides, the developers have said that GOW III will be the longest GOW game. GOW games are lengthy compared to other games in the hack & slash genre. People need to stop hating. If you want to hate, hate with facts not inaccuracies.
I agree...whats the point of speed rushing through a game....I guess those types like to record a movie or TV program and watch them on Fast Forward just to say they watched a 2 hr movie in 1 hr...lol It took me over ~ 15 hrs to beat both GOWs. It takes me awhile to get through a game and I enjoy it
Yes GOTY confirmed, thanks sony games,games and more games ;D
Cool. Just started the first game today, put in about 3 hours so far (god of war collection import)
both games can be beat within 5 hrs (speedruns)
speed run =/= playing a videogame.
So about as long as Mass Effect 2.
Except the epic action never stops. GOTY2010 baby.
yup, amazing how it lasts as long as an RPG
Call of Duty 5 easy - 6 hours Veteran - 20 hours Thats it:) Anyways nice try ;P
Fail try harder bot. :D
