But that doesn't mean there are 29 levels in the game because there's only 25 if you count hall of seasons as one giant level with 4 smaller chambers.

And there are even fewer levels if you count the Parisian streets as one location

Infact, if you try to count levels like in TRL-U then there are two locations only - Paris and Prague. Level files at least do not change their number depending on people's opinion.

It is one location but seperate levels because the book by Prima guides seggests that.

I think both measurements aren't really meaningful when trying to discuss the game's length. Some of the AOD levels are extremely short and clearly just there because of the engine's limitations (for example walking into shops in Paris). So strictly going by the number of levels makes the game seem longer than it really is. And conversely, going by the number of countries makes it seem much shorter than it really is.

This is probably equally meaningless, but here's how the game is broken up in my mind

  • Parisian streets (including the buildings like the pawnshop and the apartments)
  • Serpent Rouge (probably doesn't deserve its own, but the light rigging was really memorable for me)
  • Louvre
  • Archaeological Dig/ Tomb of Ancients
  • Hall of Seasons (including side rooms)
  • Strahov Fortress (including the snowy street area and that nice library)
  • Bio-Research Facility (very different from everything else in the game so it gets its own section)
  • Kurtis' levels
  • Aquatic Research Area / Vault of Trophies
  • Lost Domain / Eckhardt's Lab

In my mind it'd be like this:
Parisian Streets
Parisian Ghetto
Louvre
Archaeological Dig and Tomb of Ancients
Hall of Seasons
Galleries under siege and von croy's apartment
Monstrum Crimescene and Strahov Fortress
Bio Research Facility, Sanitarium, Maximum Containment Area, Aquatic Research Area
Vault of Trophies, Boaz Returns, Lost Domain, Eckhardt's Lab
