The game is designed to be replayed. A complete play-through takes something on the order of 30-40 hours, I think, and is long enough to be a satisfying experience. That's all I've done thus far, but there are options to play again in the Second Wave, which allows you to customize the settings of the game to provide more of a challenge: weapons can cause a wider range of damage, units can be created or advance with different statistics (they are normally very consistent), etc. Despite still having several other games calling for my attention, I'm feeling compelled to continue on with this game. It's addictive, maddening, and crazy-fun. An easy 5 out of 5.
