Isn't there a demo due out for this game? Like Dishonoured it's a definite buy for me but after I finished Borderlands 2. :)
It is indeed a good week for gamers, gamers with the coin that is.

It's going to be an expensive few months. That said, I failed to bag two Glasto tickets so I figure I've got £400 to spend on games.

Glowing reviews, but I don't trust them anymore. What worries me most is the length of the game.
Is it free-form like the original or just a set string of pre-made missions? How much game time I should expect to get out of it? 5 hours? 20 hours? 200 hours?
Replay value?

I read that it's around the 15 - 20 hour mark. Much longer if you go on the harder difficulties.
