I think what splits it is that I hear besides the 30 seconds acts there are some stages that can take 5-10 minutes to complete. So it's a mixture. Whatever the case we should get Dread's full opinions pretty soon. In fact, within the next 6 hours I would reckon... I need to see it to believe it since 20 hours sounds surprising to me too, but it's what Iizuka claimed and Dread mentioned it was over 20 hours. Let me get a direct quote. EDIT: Got direct quote! <!--quoteo--><div class='quotetop'>QUOTE </div><div class='quotemain'><!--quotec-->Svend SPOnG has been playing this game like a machine, and he's loving every second of it - stick around for his lengthy preview this afternoon, where he tries to sum up the 20 hours worth of gameplay into words.<!--QuoteEnd--></div><!--QuoteEEnd--> Copied from a message board but I guess we'll get more clarification tomorrow. Keep in mind his build stops at Aquarium Park I believe, the first 5 stages were fully playable. Also he can clarify if he means 20 hours for all missions, 20 hours through the story mode, or 20 hours just playing.
