Single-player games generally are pretty concise length-wise, as you mostly follow a linear experience focusing on specific characters in the story. Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 is no different, aiming to offer a mesmerizing story in a concise game length. While its prequels had a modest runtime of 17 hours, the natural question one might have is its successor’s game length. After all, the game launches on a weekday, and you might have taken a day off to complete it. Whether you are swinging through NYC or fighting the various villains in-game, we answer your questions – how long is Marvel’s Spider-Man 2? So, read on to learn the total length of the Spider-Man 2 game.
How Long is the Spider-Man 2 Game?
Since we wrapped up our Spider-Man 2 review, we have been swinging around New York City fighting criminals. So, we have the answer to the runtime length of Spider-Man 2 based on our playthrough. The main story of this game is only slightly longer than the first game’s main story.
After finishing our review, we learned that it would take most players 18-19 hours to complete the main story of Spider-Man 2. This is just an hour or two longer than the first Spider-Man game.
Now, Spider-Man 2 has numerous missions and side quests for you to complete. These can be something as simple as Marko’s memories or some tech pieces you need to upgrade your suit tech. If you start doing the side quests, the game’s playtime increases to approximately 25-26 hours, along with main and side quests. That means the total time to beat the game increases by 7-8 hours.
However, if you are someone who likes to sit down and complete every single side quest, task, and all trophy-relation missions (including the Platinum Trophy), you are probably going to need another 5-8 hours. That means the completionist run for Spider-Man 2 on PS5 will take you around 30-35 hours. Since this is a single-player experience, the runtime is justified and not over the top.
|Story Type||Time To Beat|
|Main Story||18-19 hours|
|Main Story + Side Missions||25-26 hours|
|Main Story Average Time (even if you take it slow)||20-21 hours|
The runtime length for Spider-Man 2 matches the claims of the senior director, Ryan Smith. In an interview with VG247, Smith said that the runtime is around the “same ballpark as the first game,” which matches our playthrough. 2018’s Spider-Man takes 17 hours to finish, whereas Spider-Man 2 takes 18-19 hours. Insomniac wanted to deliver a tighter experience with memorable moments, which is true in the journey you take as the spidey duo.
