The Cliffanator Promises Gears of War 2 to be 10+ Hours
While talking to CVG, Cliff Bleszinski promised that his next game Gears of War 2, will in fact be longer, maybe even ten hours. Thank god. I played and beat Gears 1 in about seven or so hours. It was a great game, but was just to damn short. To be honest, I wasn’t expecting anything longer then seven. So this is a welcome surprise.
“We definitely want it [Gears of War 2] to be longer. We won’t specify a number of hours right now, but it will be longer — I can guarantee that. And it’ll have a little bit more drama too…I think that, with campaigns like in Gears, Halo or Call of Duty, my personal preference is around the 10+ hours mark, with a co-op and a multiplier you can play in the longer term. But I find a lot of games are filled with padding to make them seem longer. They do stuff like, at the half way mark, demand that you play through all the levels again backwards, and you think “kiss my ass.” We’ll never do that. We’d always rather push forward and provide new experiences.”
I’m cool with ten hours, just not under seven. Please Cliffy, please don’t lie to us.
