No actually the 45 minute to 2 hour range is quite nice for the kind of game you're talking about.

It's just funny that you called that duration *short*. :P

That's teeny tiny! ;)

But replayability is high, and there are unlocks and so forth.

Hahahaha.  :D  It does support savegames of course, so you can play it in more than one sitting!  Come on, there are plenty of other superlong strategy games, especially in the TBS arena.  Civilization, Total War, Galactic Empires, etc. ;)

You forgot to add "Every grand strategy game that Paradox has ever released" :) Though, most of those are pausable real-time.

You don't finish a Paradox game, the Paradox game finishes you.

Ironic coming from an AI War dev. ;)

The new arcen games look awesome! Strategy, but different enough from AIWar that I don't just play that masterpiece.

Civilization? BAH! AI War has now eaten ~800 hours of free time.

45-120 minutes is quite short.
If warheads can't solve it, use more warheads.

AI War has now eaten ~800 hours of free time.
And, in that time, has averaged far more than its Recommended Daily Amount of warhead.  The AI's dietician is getting concerned.
