I've just finished playing through the game for the 2nd time and it took me 5 hours 25 minutes going quite quickly which is shorter than i'd like as ACII took me 7 hours going really fast.
Now i do realise that there are loads of sxtra bits but I dislike the way the main story was only a very small part of the whole game and like ACII there is a part where if ur doing a speed run you have to stop and collect stuff (assassins recruits before the collosseum assassination) in this case, and it really disrupts the flow like collecting codex pages, will ubisoft not learn!! :/

Well, I've spent 29 hours collecting and really playing everything, and I'm only half way through renovating Rome, and haven't even started on the Christina missions, Contracts or Abstergo missions.

Remember this is an open world game created in only one year. I think the content/time ratio is amazing Smile

I'm on 43 hours, and I've still got some stuff left to do. Just started on sequence 8

I'm interested in speed run benchmarks. Are both these times from the in-game stats or did you use a stopwatch? On Brotherhood did you use the new "skip cutscene" feature?

You won't even feel the blade.

I have 26 hours and I have 76 Full synch. I believe that the length of the story was proper for what Ubisoft wanted to deliver with AC:B, closure to Ezio's story. It's true it may have been a little short (6 hours so, so) for today's standards, yet, you have to consider this isn't ACIII, it's an expansion of the original ACII. Plus, I believe that the strength of Brotherthood is not in the main missions, but in the TONS of stuff there is to do, during and after the main story is finished.

I prefer to play the game at a slower, more relaxed pace and actually only play about 45 minutes to an hour and a half at any one time. I've had the game since release date and have only played about 6 or 7 hours so far, currently being on only Sequence 7. I really don't want to rush the story (although sadly I already know the ending Crying )

It may seem mad to get the game right away and still not have completed the story or played more but that's just how I play. I don't want to feel obliged to play even the best of games so, as soon as I get slightly bored or tired, the PS3 gets switched off and I do something else. I might come back to it within an hour our two but I won't sit there for 3 or 4 hours straight just because I think "Oh, I spent £40 on this game so I have to keep playing, even if I'm bored." It's not a bad thing, but I don't find AC:B to be the sort of game that you can play for ages and ages without a break. For me personally, who, tbh, can get bored easily, the world is just too big and the story too rich for it to be rushed.

With the story still to be completed (by Friday or next Tuesday by the looks of things [I'm away at the weekend]), and then the Romulus Lairs, shop quests, feathers, Borgia Flags, Cristina Missions, Copernicus Conspiracy, shop upgrades, Assassin's Contracts, Guild Challenges, Memory replays (to get 100% Sync as well as just for fun), and Multiplayer to be played/collected/done, this game is easily going to last me well into next year. Add the fact that I'm getting CoD: Black Ops for Christmas, I think Brotherhood will last me until next Christmas! Tongue

Yes, the core story might be slightly shorter than usual, but don't tell me this game is small or empty.

I love Brotherhood, given how fast it was released since ACII. And it was a good game as well, gave us more climbing, more assassinating and more fighting. Oh and, it gave us multiplayer. You can ALWAYS do that after you finish the Single Player (provided you have an internet connection, which at the moment I'm still trying to repair, can't play multiplayer Sad )

I'm having trouble with multiplayer as well. I can get as far as the "Synchronizing Agents" line (one time I was able to select my character...ONE TIME) on my laptop's connection. I'll be able to play from December 17th to January 1st on multiplayer, so make sure to look me up then! Big smile

I used in game stats for them and I only skipped a couple of the longer cinematics cause most of them are quite entertaining Smile

I imagine that skipping cutscenes doesn't affect overall time, since the game already pauses all timers and such during cutscenes as it is. This could be tested, but I don't really have the time (nor the will) to do it. Smile

I haven't even played any multiplayer yet. I played the Beta and really enjoyed it, even with the many minor bugs, but I want to leave the multiplayer until I've finished the better and more interesting singleplayer. I've played the multiplayer cutscene with Vidic in but haven't actually played a session yet. Cant wait! Laughing out loud

I tried playing the multiplayer once, but my internet connection caused just enough lag to ruin the whole idea. It was literally impossible for me to blend realistically.
