I'm 15 hours into the game and I'm playing quite thoroughly.

  • Approximately how many hours should a thorough player get out of the game?

  • If you focus on only the main missions, how quickly could it be done?

What mission are you on currently, that'll give me a good indication of how much is left for you specifically. – Mr Smooth Sep 2 '11 at 6:16
I'm in China trying to escape some hotel so I can break into some medial company. Does that clarify? – Coomie Sep 2 '11 at 7:13
then you are fairly close to the end, probably 70% done – l I Sep 2 '11 at 10:32
@yx, that's untrue, trying to break into Tai Yong is immediately after you leave detroit for the first time, so I'd say he's about 40% done. – Mr Smooth Sep 2 '11 at 14:06

I personally am one of those players who tries to do EVERYTHING, explore everything, find everything etc, and it took me around 40ish hours on "Give me Deus Ex". Including restarts.

I have no idea how short it can be completed, but I've heard around 10 hours? Don't quote me on that though.

I explored everything, tried to do all the quest I could find without a guide, and on deus ex difficulty, took me ~26 hours. I ended up missing two major side quests, but had enough praxis points to fill almost every aug because of my obsession with hacking everything I come across.

Current numbers at How Long To Beat put it at ~18 hours to complete the main storyline, and ~35-40 for completionists that want to do everything, with most players falling somewhere in between.

Expect those numbers to become more precise (and probably higher, given the way HLTB works) as time goes on.
