@Liltawen Amen.
I think the average is closer to 10 minutes.
It could be even faster but sometimes you have to actually wait for spawns to happen, cutscenes to play, and doors to open.
(Look I know there are 5 robonuts outside the door after I take out the first guard...just open the door already and let me at em!)

If I never see this again, I'll be a happy man.

Wow they really shouldn't have used pistols to show off combat. This isn't even machinima quality. Way to show off your work SOE.

On a side note, the game is much better than this trailer shows it off to be.

Now I remember why I didn't buy the game after playing in the beta.

Here I thought it was going to be a server down or login queue movie. =P

Ok guys, stop imitating the last guy on comments.

In one week I clocked 30h+ in this game and that's a lot from me. My most played game on Steam (after only one week) so far. And in addition to say something of my taste, I am an EVE Online lover too.

Game is fun through and through, but too short atm. Level cap at 30 is wayyy too low and leaves me wondering why pay for it next month anymore. But that ain't bad, it is fun and much better use of money than normal single player games which cost the same.

PvP is ok, but the game is really an open world PvE game. Char creation is great down to the skills.

PvP servers are terrible, there are too few. Getting into an Arena or other match can be an hour long wait. Servers in general, also the open world ones, are pretty full and laggy and are the worst thing in this game atm.

Something this game has and no other MMOs do: adrenaline junkie action. There's constantly something to fight against, fly race or climb. It's a blast for a MMO. It's fun, fast paced and has a lot going for it. Do not pass, even if you think superheroes are for 8 yr olds. Because that's what I thought and I love the game.

@Lighthill I have never lagged once in this game. What server are you on? I'm on Death & Glory which is high pop and never noticed any lag. This really surprized me because I honestly expected it from all my experiences playing newly released MMOs.

The video doesn't do the game justice. I am having a ton of fun from the beginning and it gets better the more powers you have. I haven't felt the need to rush to max level. I also never feel like I'm grinding.

The people who don't like this game usually want the standard MMO, which it definitely isn't. I'm not sure how long it will hold my interest, but I can definitely say I already got my money's worth. I usually don't feel like that in other games unless I have been max level for a while and truly enjoy the pvp. The pvp might not be "meaningful" but it sure is fun IMO. I haven't tried the Arenas yet, but the world pvp is great.

My advice to potential players... Don't come into this game expecting the standard MMO play style. Take your time and don't worry about the ganking (if you're on a PvP server). I would also look at it as buying a single player game. If you do this, even if you don't continue to play after the free month, it will be as if you bought a regular game. I also recommend a controller if on PC (luckily I've had a 360 controller for a while).

If you expect it to be like WoW, CoH, etc you will be disappointed.

I am on EU servers, which are not really in EU, but US. Might explain it.

I've run this so many times, now I make it challenging by trying to get these feats before the instance is over:
5, 25 explosive barrels
5 of the other barrels
25, 50 and 100 hit combos. Probably only doable with certain weapons. Best spots are the Boss fight and the Lex/Supes fight.

There might be others, let me know if you think of anything :)

remember the earlier you get feats the sooner you get to use the bonus skill point, so it's just something to do to keep sane while running the thing for the millionth time
