    For those lucky few that actually have the game... How long is it? It's a seller question for me! I played the demo at GS and thought it was pretty sweet, but I don't wanna pay for a game that is as short as NSMB!

    I'd love to hear some general impressions of SMG for those lucky enough to have played it.

    I heard there are 120 stars to collect like in SM64, but only 4 per stage.

    If that's true = 30 different stages of fun. And i'm going to collect all stars in the first run. I remember that collecting every single star took (me) really long in SM64.

    weird i heard it was about 6 per stage or something.

    Takes 8 hours to beat, or about 15 for all 120 stars (from ignboards anyway)

    Remember the good old days when they made platformers/games freaking long? [​IMG]

    I've still not collected all the stars in Super Mario 64/Super Mario Sunshine, and I could swear I've spent more time than 15 hours.

    Like what? Depending on how old you go, those games didn't last anywhere near 8 hours. They also didn't have any reason to go back and play. There were no optional quests or anything like that.

    Super Mario 64 was long to me, I dunno. Maybe this game is really easy but to be honest, I bet this game will take longer than 15 hours for me to get all 120 stars.

    Not sure how long I've played... maybe 3/4 hours and I only have 10 starts... if there is 120, it's going to take a lot longer than 8 hours... Of course, I like to explore the levels a lot, not just blaze through them...
