    Short is a bit harsh, 12 hours isn't exactly that short, about the same or more than gears, Half Life 2, Fear etc.

    Game looks interesting, there are some nice hi Def videos on gamevideos.com not sure how the Max Payne bullet time thingy is going to work in multiplayer.

    Who cares if it's a little on the short side. Any Max Payne-alike is going to be great fun to play!

    I've been looking forward to this release. this is the first in many big releases for the 360 from the end of august (which is its release date) up towards christmas. i cant wait!

    just wish the game would come sooner! i'm bored and got nothing to play till this hits the shelve!

    this game reminds me of true crime LA more!

    12 hours is pretty good... wouldn't pay $60 though. If the deathmatch was inventive then maybe $50.

    I figure like FEAR did -- everybody slows down by 80% whereas you only slow down by say, 30%, etc..

    Or they have a special motor that reduces the rate at which the earth is spinning thus actually slowing down time.

    Hey, superman even made it go backwards!

    I thought Gears of War broke the train of thought that a short game couldn't be epic. I'm guessing Gears of War is somehow the only exception to this idea people have that every game (be it action, beat em up, shooter, or any other non RPG) needs to be 50hrs long or something.
