About how long did it take to beat the campaign on normal?

And don't say anything else, I haven't played it yet, I just want to know how long it took. Thanks!

All the games have 5 acts. Gears 3 just so happens to have 6-7 scenes in each act over 5-6 or in Gears 1 last acts case 3 scenes.

Edit: Epic also said that the deleted scene from Gears 2 takes an hour. It really comes down to what kind of player you are.

Hardcore. Normal in Gears 3 is apparently Casual with no auto-aim, as said by Rod. (I have not played it yet though, so I can't say much more about the matter)

They probably rushed through it that's why.

Nope, played it just like I did with Gears 1 and 2. Looked around for collectibles, watched all cutscenes, did everything. 8 hours.

Moral of my story: Never believe the developer when they talk about the length of their game, they will always exaggerate it.

truth! just look what bungie said about halo reach's camp. :\ halo 3's campaign was longer then it was and so was the multi-player so never believe game designers im sure they'll tell you that at the end of the game DOM ****s rainbows and pisses gold aslong as it sells 40 million copies more than the last game Lul and before anyone thinks im bashing the gears franchise or cliff im not gears is a good game and ive followed it from day 1 but marketing is marketing and people need to just wise up and realize that money rules everything.

I too am curious, but for completing it on hardcore.

Thanks to recent developments with friends, we won't be able to start our 4 person campaign until 5:00-5:30pm AT BEST.

If we can't beat it by a reasonable time like, say before 3AM, we will have to hold off continuing until 10pm the next night.

It was about 10 hours for me, maybe slightly more. It felt long though, longer than gears 1 or 2 imo.

I just *SPOILER*






Wish they'd talked about the locust a bit more, Adam Fenix keeps hinting towards it then he dies...giving Baird a disc with data on. I hope we find that out in a DLC chapter or something.
