What makes the Q&A even more unbelievable is that for the title of the website it says 20-25 hour Campaign, if this were even close to being true it would be somewhat disappointing

Edit: Although it is also on their facebook i guess: https://www.facebook.com/notes/ubisoft/2012-gamescom-devs-qa-assassins-creed-iii/10151000401607286

What's so bad about a 20-25 hour campaign? ACII was far less than that, and I felt it was a satisfying length.

I think Alex meant 30+ hours for the main campaign alone, not including side-missions, and AC2's story was round about 15-20 hours, wasn't it?

20-25 hours is great. Uncharted 3's Campaign was only 8 hours long so..?

ACR was suppose to be what 20 hours to 25, i think that's what they said when they were making it. I remember 25+ when i know a few people (that i've asked) that beat it under that including me. 30 hours to start Connor's story and end it, and continue Desmond's story and conclude it and answering a lot of the questions and all side missions and what not seems a bit short to me. Idk but that just may be me.

if that is 30+ only for the main story and no side missions then that's better but i'll pass my judgment when i actually play it in 2 months

LOL really, thank god i thought they took swimming out

Guys, previously they were being more vague about the length. Know why? Because they were still in development and the length was no pinned down. Now that we're closer to release, Alex has said "about 30 hours" in every interview. Do you think that maybe they know for sure, since they're the ones making it? /sarcasm

Also, in response to some early comments, GTA4 has taken me far more than 30 hours, and I'm barely anywhere in it.

The General Narrative alone is 30 hours long.. there is a trophy for completing the game in 30 hours..

Time to complete a game (Especially open world styled games) is different for everybody. It all depends how somebody plays it really. I myself like to look around and explore everything i can and so completing the story itself usually takes me a long time :p.

It's nice that they have a good estimate though. Hopefully even if it is slightly less than that for most people it will still be enough to satisfy.

Nothing is ever enough to satisfy..
