Deus Ex: Human Revolution to be over 25 hours long

Gamers are obsessed with game length and love hearing about how long it takes to complete any given title. With that in mind, I present to you claims from Eidos Montreal that Deus Ex: Human Revolution will take over 25 hours to beat. 

The game can now be played to completion, and producer David Anfossi claims that its testers couldn't reach the end in the six days they had to play it. 

"So far with them playing about six hours every day, most of them don't complete the game," he brags in PC Gamer.

Initial reactions are said to be positive, with Anfossi noting how the game opens up and becomes more ambitious than people expect: "The ones that are more casual gamers, who are used to more 'corridor, cut-scene, corridor, cut-scene' type of gameplay -- they play it that way for a while. Then suddenly, there's this new world that opens to them, and they start getting a bit more creative."

Being part of one of the most respected franchises going, Human Revolution has a lot at stake. I dare say many gamers will be unhappy no matter the result, but how are you feeling? Are you looking forward to the game, and does 25 hours feel like enough?
