15 Hours of RAGE?

Examiner.com has word that id's upcoming first-person shooter RAGE can be completed in about 15 hours, saying this figure comes from id's Tim Willits in an interview with the new OXM. There isn't any concrete context on how this figure was arrived at, and how much time a more completionist player will spend exploring side-quests and the game's open environment.

Eh, if it's 15 hours of good fun, sounds about right to me.

When a FPS is finishable, even on higher difficulties, with no excessive shortcutting in 3-5 hours for full price, I feel ripped.

But that being said, a 100 hour RPG game which is complete crap at full price makes me feel ripped, so there's no easy way to say whether 15 hours is good or not, it's entirely subjective.

560 Ti if you want Nvidia or Radeon 6870 if you want ATI. Both are fairly close in benchmarks and the hands down best cards for price to performance ratio. You'll get a lot of use out of either card for quite some time. Despite the fanboyism you might hear on forums both companies drivers have relative parity these days so my suggestion would be to just grab whatever gets you the better deal on price.

On a semi-unrelated note I finnaly replaced my "aging" Geforce8800GT. The crunch was not being able to play the latest DCS simulator at a playable frame-rate, as well as the strange LAG bug with World of Tanks that occurs with this card quite often.

Now Im the pround owner of the Radeon HD6870. A very nice card indeed. Its nice to be able to play games on the highest settings without any FPS drop whatsoever.

Still, Im going to miss the Geforce 8800GT. This might seem strange but out of all the graphics cards I purchased over the years this one has served me the longest and Ive become quite fond of it since nearly all the new games I purchased ran with very little problems on it. I wouldnt have replaced it if I didnt have the problems listed above.

I have the 640MB version of that card, and I too am having a hard time upgrading. I know I need to do it, but.....it still performs pretty well, but I know I am missing a lot of eye candy.

Need to do my research and just upgrade.

So, if you go to see a movie, it's really good, and it ends in 30 mins, that's acceptable to you?

As the average movie is 120 minutes long, by your math, you expect all games to be 60 hours long in order to be "acceptable".

Average ticket price is ~$8.00 now, so if a game can deliver over 7.5 hours of entertainment, then it's on par with a movie. So a 15 hour game is equivalent to a 4 hour movie...as far as hours of entertainment per dollar goes.

I'm generally satisfied with a game that's 15-20 hours long. Less if it's really good and/or re-playable. I actually prefer a game with a fairly short core and abanduance of good, but optional side-content.

replay value doesn't seem to hold any value with people how put the physical value on their products.

Wonder if theyr are jsut trying to make people forget that Carmack said dedicated server was unlikley?

Anyways this game is not even on my radar. I've learned my lesson. Even Black ops with it's GameServers dedicated @#$& is a laggy mess. BFBFC2 was horrible for god knows how long for the same reason.

Do it right let people host or release on consoles only. ID used to innovate now they just move backwards. Carmack ahould go back to trying to build spaceships or what ever that was...

Give modders a chance they'll make real games!

"Can be" is such a weird way to phrase it.


I mean, hell, MW2 can be completed in 40 hours, if you run in circles for 35 of those.

15 hours of a beautiful new engine being tech demoed where bodies go flying gib-less doom 3 style with exaggerated weights and then disappear as a cheesy animated transparent burning away animation covers the model.

In one of the gameplay vid's showing off the "awesome" rc car with explosives,the ragdoll was already "fading away" and or dissappearing before the ragdoll even fully landed and stopped moving on the ground.

Did I mention the decals are fading quicker then Medal of Honors decals from the playstation one version.

So blow up a room full of guys, and before you even leave it looks like nothing happened, no player manipulating their environment and its inhabitants, its all clean again.

bleh. Doom 3 beta was far superior ( not bugwise or optimization- nwise ) to the full Doom 3 Retail game with its feel.

Indeed the virtual janitor of Doom3 was WAY, WAY too proactive. Thankfully, mods fixed that.

Was going to buy RAGE day one but your reminder point may make me wait for mods to allow my carnage efforts to be worthwhile.

Morrowind CAN be completed in about 10 minutes.

You can speed run any game, when people bring up game length they are usually referring to the average time it takes to complete, not the extreme lower or upper ends of the threshold. Just my opinion anyways. For the record I think 15 hours for an FPS these days is just fine.

What I really want to know is...How many levels does it have?

Remeber guys, Doom2 had 32 levels...

Didn't it have 33? 10 per series, and 3 secrets?

Nope. In the German version, you won't be able to shoot anybody. Whenever you have an enemy in your crosshair and click, your opponent and you will sit down and discuss about how pointless war and killing are and how good censorship is.

In the Australian version, you won't be able to use meds to heal yourself, won't be able to use the bongs in the game, and of course you'll get all the "bonus" of the German version in addition.

 
Consoles? I owned two: a Pong clone and an Atari 2600. And that's it.

Considering this is an FPS and not an RPG, 15 hours seems pretty good. The real question is if there is any redeeming replayability.
