Only 4 levels, albeit long levels, but I think the game could have been longer.

There are four levels? But Nokill is right, almost everyone thinks it's too short. I mean what about those missions that Delta squad constantly finds itself being sent on.

No, there aren't only four levels. There are 3 campaigns, which are subdivided into several levels. Look at the "Campaign Map" in the main menu and you'll see the names of the levels.

6 hours is pretty short. Elite Force was only 6 hours and it was called short (back in 2001).

Yeah, its too short. Especially for its price-point.

I'd rather they made it short and good, then long and average. Not that I would mind if it was longer and of equal quality. But if I played the full version as many times as I played the demo, it would easily keep me entertained for a year without even doing any multiplayer.

I can't say about Doom3 (my computer runs the demo crappily so I never considered getting the game).

But IIRC, JA was rated 10-15 hours, depending on if you skipped levels. It's definately more than the 6 hours commonly attributed to RC. We're talking average SP gameplay here, not rushing through on easy or cheating or messing around or something I assume, but also not a "speed run" where you beat the game in like 30 minutes. ;)

I got through doom 3 within 5 hours.

JA, I took my time the first play, but 2nd play I just "hit and run"d it. Finished within about 6 and a half hours.

And I ALWAYS play with difficulty on hard.

I have to disagree with that one, JA must've taken me at least three times as long as it took me to beat RC. And I was playing on Normal (Jedi).

Yeah JA took a lot longer, especially on hard.
And don't forget there was both a light and dark campaigns that could be played.

Weird, it only took me about 8 hours for JA, and I've already played about 3 in RC and I'm on one of the first few missions.

Well my experience with JA actually playing and not just messing around with all the neat little features, like I said, I got through in about 6 and a half hours. And I always play on hard so... yeah.

I'm only half way through the second campaign. But I got a late start on the game and I only get to play one day a week thanks to work.

I think it was more like 3 worlds with many levels, but the levels are short, making the game short.:atat:

The ship keeps exploding. :p
And besides, if you die, you still got a chance. :)

Oh, man! I hated that mission. :p I once started from the beginning, ignored everyone that attacked by leaving my squad to deal with them (great leadership eh? :xp: ) and managed to slice the console with two minutes left. Then it said to go to the aft of the ship, and I stood in the aft until I had been killed off by trandos, with no gunship arriving! :mad:
Don't worry, I got it eventually. :p

Really? I only once had the ship blow up on me. The reason I had difficulty on that part and had to redo it a few times was becuase my entire squad would go down on the bridge. Had to learn how to use ammo perfectly on the way over there. So as to by pass every enemy at maximum speed while still having enough ammo to survive on the bridge. (I have no time for 2 Dekas blocking my path.)

Its average length to me. Not short. Now a game such as BF is short.

Eh.... I wouldnt say its long yet I wouldnt say its short. If you dnt play your cards right you could be at the reciving end of a Dwarfs canon. But other wise it was an average length of time.

I honestly could not agree more with this.
I know the game is short, but it is very good. I loved the graphics and the story.

You played it on easy?

Out of every game I own, only Half Life is a long game on easy, and that's only because of the insta-kill moments.

Aurelius
05-16-2005, 10:17 AM
half-life?
that game is awful
anyway im starting a new campaign on hard
ill see how i fair

WTF!

You really have a screwed up taste in games. OK, Half Life is old, but with the graphics add-on, it's one of the few games that convinces me that I'm actually on a journey.

i guess i just heard so much complaining about how short this game is, that when i finally played it, i was pleasantly surprised. sure, it's not an epic or anything, but i've played plenty of fast action shooters that are just as short as RC, if not shorter. max payne 2 can be completed in 3 hours, and it's considered a masterpiece. i've been playing RC for a good chunk of time every night for four days, and i'm still not done. for an fps, i don't really think that's all that bad. hell, i beat call of duty in two days.

these are the kind of games you play over and over because they're just plain fun. the best thing about RC is that there's no filler... every single level is well designed and paced. i'd rather have a game like that, than a game that uses cut-and-paste levels to increase play time in a really blatant manner (halo, i'm looking at you.)
