Just finished it myself after a solid 44 hours (according to steam). One of the better games I've played in my life. The moral ambiguity is nice and the ending I got was very satisfying AND left me wanting more from a second playthrough and a different angle. I don't feel like I've touched the entire game yet.
Anyone else given this game a shot?

But whatever, it's certainly on my 'someday to buy/play' list. Thanks also for the confirmation that it will be a game I'll enjoy (in it's broad similarity to SW games).

So yeah, I suppose if you power-played you could do the main story in 8 hours...maybe. But I don't think it is too short at all, Geneforge 5 took me almost the same length of time. And every second of this game was a joy.

Combat is more fluid and fun than PoE(probably because I hate Vancian magic). The story is tighter, more engaging. PoE felt indifferent of you and the writing feels cold most of the time. It's well-done but it doesn't really draw you in.

Although I was a little disappointed on my first playthrough where I had been loyal to the VoN the whole time and yet still wanted to eat me by games end. Perhaps I didn't handle that very well.

On the flipside, if you expect that the various skills are going to be useful you will find they almost never become an issue. The only skillcheck that is mildly difficult is the 47 subterfuge check in the chorus camp at game start. Can be finished with careful planning before you even leave that screen. Can be finished with bad planning within the next two or three screens. If you can't pass checks from then on then you have some serious character design problems.
Maybe Jeff sucks at playing games?
