So? Just a rough value would be enough. In gameplay hours or days in real time. I need to know so I can calculate and finish the game in time.

lol, in time for what?

it's not a race, I suggest to just play to have fun, if you finish it in 24 hours then fine, if it takes you a month, then fine, as long as your having fun.

Wow, now that was a fast reply. Anyway, I would play the game slowly and enjoy it if I had more time. But I only have about a week before I will have to report in for the university intake so I'm kinda rushing.

playing how much per day? if more than like 4 hours a day, then a week should be enough to finish it, if more than 6 hours a day, then you've got more than enough time...

Took me about a week to beat it, playing for hours after school.

you are trying to say you finished the game in 8 hours straight? bull****.

or did you just use a walk through so you didn't have to actually PLAY?

Took me about 22 hours to complete over a period of around a week or so, i dedicated a lot of time to it, before work, after work etc....... too bad i don't own a commode chair or i could of completed it quicker..:D

Thanks. Anybody else?

By the way, I play for about 4-6 hours a day but I tend to reload my save game if I take too much damage or waste too much bullets(like using 150 bullets just to take out 3 storm troopers) and this eats up time.

Idiot. I did not use any walkthrough. The game is extremely logical.

Just because you're still struggling on how to get the lightsaber out of the cage, doesn't mean everyone else it.

Grow up.

I bought the game a nine o'clock and played for about seven hours straight. I then realised i had a terrible headache and ended up going to bed at about five! I completed it in the next couple of days.

I thought the length was ok. It took me longer than medal of honour and max payne but that could be mainly due to all the searching around. I think the length was about right.

DL are you kidding? That wouldn't happen unless you just keep running past every map without looking around at all.

RiverWalker
04-19-2002, 01:38 PM
sure, logical is fine, and crap like getting the light saber didn't give me any problems, but, you couldn't possibly have finished in 8 hours, at least not if you had any FUN.

edit: next thing we know he's gonna say he finished the HalfLife single player in 12 hours...

There was a question asked. I answered it. If you can't accept it, it's not my problem.

The game isn't that hard plus I'm pretty good at FPS and I played Heretic 2 a lot so I was familar with the game style.

And why would I want to look at the map!?

"oooh that's a pretty R2 unit. Think I'll look at that for an hour"

I tried to finsih the game as fast as possible. I'm going through the game agin now on Jedi Master slower.

You are an ass. Hear that. An ass.

What part of "Just because someone else can do and you can't doesn't make it impossible" didn't you understand!?

I did have fun with the game but what's the point in dragging it out.

As for Half Life, I didn't particularly enjoy it but I'd guess at 15hours. But it's been 2 years since I played it.

Well, it took me six days to complete. Time flies when playing, so I can't say for sure how many exact hours it took, but if I say I played 6 hours each day, it must have been roughly 36 hours or less(20 hours or more on Jedi difficulty level was the estimate I remember reading from one preview before JK2 came out). That time also includes every possible death from running into too many enemies, who shot me down, Dark Jedis who cut my head off occasionally or falling into endless shaft and trying to figure out solutions to "not-so-hard-puzzles"(you just have to explore environments a little bit more and don't forget items you have in your inventory). Have fun! :D

8-10 hours, specially in Jedi Master difficulty. AH. Look at me. AH. I'm LAUGHING! AH! What a joke. Geez.

Took me around a week, playing around 4-5 hours a day.

You just used a walkthru and cheats just so you wouldn't have any problems advancing in the game.

Took me 10 hours the first time. But I don't think that it's anything to brag about, it's a simple number, nothing more.

As for the riddles... well, I didn't experience as to easy or too difficult, they were just right, it took you some time to figure some of them out, but it mostly stayed logical.

The only spot where I had to look up the solution happened to be the very last riddle, where I missed the button on knee-height that opens the last movable wall in the yavin temple.

I've finished the game several times since then, mostly taking more time to find all the secrets.

Exactly. I wasn't bragging. I stated how long it took me but some people, who for some reason seem to think that if they can't do it, no one can, have some sort of problem with it.

I'd just like to state that I used no walkthroughs as

1) I got the game on day 1 and there were none.
2) No official walkthrough is available here.

and the cheats were not released when I was playing the game for the first time.

why go so dang fast? like I said to start with, theres no race here, if you find fun in getting done far faster than was intended, and missing out on a large portion of the game, (the side crap that has no actual influence on the story, but is fun. and just admiring the eye candy in some parts, if you have the hardware to put the settings up) and nobody beliving you, then good for you,

but can't conceive of how that is more fun than taking time, going through an area 3 times so you get it just perfect, or fighting the same reborn(s) or squad of storm troopers so you can do it flawlessly, and other time consuming things, and so on...

I put $1200 into my computer when I built it, and though I gripe about it being a year old now, it can still run games like this with the eye candy, and I want to appriciate that facet of the game,

and personally... I bought it full price, first time through SP, and screwing around with codes in SP has provided me with about a week and a half of entertainment, and MP is still going strong, and has a great outlook, already it's worth the cost, if I could play through the single player in 8 hours I'd be seriously let down.

I can accept 8 hours on Jedi Knight difficulty, if your the anal sort to race through games like that(or just used a walkthrough), but 8-10 hours on Jedi Master is a joke,

and even trying to go that fast, or taking only 15 hours on HL,... I feel sorry for you, missing out on some of the best parts of a game,

<insert yoda quote about luke always looking to the future, not enough attention to what hes doing at the moment here>

It only took me a few days to beat it, playing about 4 or 5 hours a day.

Yes, I did use a walkthrough for the tough stupid puzzles that I never would've had a chance figuring out (wtf you're supposed to do next on lvl 2 comes to mind).

This time I'm going through on a higher difficulty setting, and I still got stuck at the same spot. It's irritating.

However, I didn't need to use a walkthrough after killing Galak.

A week and a half in padawan skill. :( Raven should've really spent a few more months on the game because the puzzles and everything are too hard and too tedious.

It took me a week on Jedi Knight difficulty at about 3 hours a night. 15 hours total.

Guys don't be so quick to call people liars. It is possible to beat the game in 8-10 hours. If you play straight you take out things like load times and when you are playing straight it can go fast. Some of the puzzles are hard for people but to some hardcore players there is nothing that hard. I bet people used the saber alot when they got it too. If you go with guns and explosives you can mop up the floor of stormies real quick. Faster than the saber I dare say. I cleared out levels in 20 minutes sometimes.

Probably took me around 30 hours over the period of 3 weeks. I take my time.. and I got stuck in a few places for a good hour (a hole in the wall that is blended in with everything, ect.) The only thing I didn't like was:

Desann was way to easy to beat. You just put it on light stance and hold down the left mouse button... it was disappointing I thought, but the rest of the game rocked.

You people saying 8-10 hours are full of crap. I'm sorry, but you obviously dont have a very good sense of time. There is no WAY that you could finish this game in 8-10 hours. Elite Force, yes, but this - no way. I don't think you could even walk through all the empty maps in 8-10 hours - they're really large.

With all the lightsaber fights, all the times that you pretty much *have* to die (such as when the floor blows up underneath you and you have no way of preventing it the first time), I just cannot believe you.. sorry. You probably aren't aware of just how much time you are playing games a day.. not a bad thing, but I don't think you realize it. 8-10 hours is just impossible.

And this is not a flame - I'm not angry, I'm just saying that I don't believe you.. and it seems like I'm not the only one.

It seems that if someone asks you how long did it take to complete a game, whatever you do - even if it is the truth - do NOT say it took 8 hours or something which would be considered a short amount of time. Why? People refuse to believe that some people can actually be that good at games.

Do you remember Quake 1? Some dude completed the game etirely in 12 minutes. This is true ****e. It was a fair fwe years ago now so I wouldn't know where to find it on the net, but I hope some of you who were around in the days of Quake1 to remember this.

8 hours doesn't seem so short now does it. Perhaps those people (you know who you are) would now stop going off at people who say they completed it realitivly quickly. As the odds are they really did do such a thing.

Oh and one last thing... You say they can't possibly do it? THEN PROVE IT INSTEAD OF ACUSING THEM OF LIEING ABOUT IT.

Bacon00
04-20-2002, 03:14 AM
12 minutes.. lmao

You're the gullable (sp?) type aren't you? Unless you told me you watched him, I won't believe 12 minutes for a second.

Hell, you can't even beat NES Mario in 12 minutes.. takes 15 at least.

I still don't believe people that say 8 hours. They might think they only played for 8 hours, but they probably lost track of time.. understandable.

I believe 15 hours.. but 8? no way.

actually I heard quake 1 was done in about 20 minutes ( not to knock you or anything obijonkenobi ) and there was a vid of it floating around at one stage to prove it apparently. Who knows, maybe it's just a urban legend, but untill someone can prove to me that it is I'll go on happily believing it.

As for the rest of you. If you finished the game in 8 hours and enjoyed it then good on you. If you finished it in (like me) about 30 hours then good on you as well. Each to their own, as I'm sure that every individual is capable of deciding how they prefer to play the game, but don't hassle someone else just because they play the game a way that you don't like.

Bacon00
04-20-2002, 03:46 AM
20 minutes?!? My god.. maybe it is real (if 2 people have mentioned it..)

Sorry, but, people need lives!!!! You obviously have to PRACTICE at that.. lol..

but I still don't believe 8 hours your first time through. No way. If I was TRYING to rush through the game, I think I would have taken about 20 hours... MAYBE 18. But 8? I just don't see how with this game.

RiverWalker
04-20-2002, 04:25 AM
at least someone agrees with me...

could belive 8 hours IF you had been through it and knew all the tricks, or used a walkthrough, AND didn't go back to play around for the sake of playing around, AND were good at these kinda games to start with, (that one isn't so hard to fulfil)

bacon, I think that part is definitely an issue, I've heard several OTHER ways of doing it, that work just as well, I think it could have definitely been done better.

I guess it comes down to wether you play the game to win, or to have fun.

personally I rather play to have fun, and if you can only have fun in winning, well, thats pathetic.

Bacon00, I think the demo/mod you are looking for would be Quake Done Quick, which was a real mad@55 charge thru Quake 1 on Nightmare in about 20 minutes (as previously mentioned).

The team that did this also produced Scourge Done Slick (one of the addon packs done equally fast if I recall)

In fact, try this URL: http://www.planetquake.com/qdq/

Oh yeah, and I finished JK2 in 16 hours on medium in one session that nearly burned out my retina. My girlfriend thought I had died :D

It took me about a week, but I work 40hrs/week so.......

Actually it took me a tad longer, I bought it on a weekend and I had not finnished it the next weekend, but I played it through a second time starting last Saturday and finnished it last night [on Jedi Master diff, but I also cheated this time around, I simply wasn't enjoying it on the diff level.]

Compared to Medal of Honor, its a marathon, compared to Balder's Gate its short. That's about all one can say. I was unhappy with Hedal of Honor single player as I beat it in under 24hours [including sleep time], I was happy with JK2 single player, but that's me.............

7 days after I got the game I finished it... That would be like, 1.5 to 2 hours a day (was sick so had plenty of time)...

That would make 10-14 hours... probably ten!

It took me about 3 nights to beat playing around 4-6 hours a night.

I have a hard time believing the 8 hour claims posted earlier but I'm not gonna accuse anyone of lying. I think it's more a matter of an inaccurate estimate.

I beat it in 8 hours. Of how many games i have played alot of stuff get predictable. My theroy is mosy everything has a really simple way to do it because if it wasnt it would be in the game. If a game made no sence people would be agravated and not play. They make games simple like that to make people gkeep playing and so they fell good about them selfs for figureing out stuff so simply.
