Vanquish Will Take 10 Hours, But It Doesn't End There
These days, most people are happy with a campaign that lasts 10-12 hours. Uncharted 2: Among Thieves falls into that category, as does the recently released Enslaved: Odyssey to the West.
What they don't want is something like the 5-hour campaign in Medal of Honor (regardless of how good that game really is, in our estimation). If they're not about to play online, the gamer wants his money's worth, yes? Well, you don't have to worry about Platinum Games dedicating extra resources to multiplayer in Vanuqish, because the game doesn't have a multiplayer option. So, are the single-player fans going to be happy? According to UGDB.com, Sega producer Keith Dwyer says the campaign in Vanquish will take around 10 hours to complete:
"The campaign for Vanquish can take 10 or so hours to complete, but you are no means done, said Keith, "There are additional unlocks to increase replay value, such as the Challenge modes that unlock after you complete chapters. These Challenge sections are quite hard, they require a lot of knowledge about general game mechanics, as well as enemy weaknesses, and weapon effectiveness."
Vanquish is doing quite well on the critical front thus far; reviews of 8s and high 8s are starting to fall everywhere (including the recent 8.5 at IGN), and we've been excited about this particular title for months. Here's hoping it turns out to be a must-play; our review is coming soon...
