But if you are playing the multiplayer game, then you will need an average of 518 hours for Co-Op (co-operative) mode, and 118 hours 12 minutes for Competitive mode.

The average time to beat any game also depends on the platform you are using. For the single-player mode, you can use platforms like PlayStation 3 and 4. If you’re playing only the main story, PlayStation 3 takes 10 hours 55 minutes and PlayStation 4 takes 10 hours 11 minutes. But if you are playing along with the extras, you’ll need 13 hours for PlayStation 3 and 11 hours 51 minutes for PlayStation 4.

But this was the average time you take to beat the game. If you want to finish this game in the fastest way possible, then you will take only 7 hours 46 minutes for completing the main story only, and 9 hours 37 minutes along with extras. And if you are playing it taking your own time, then for the main story only, you will need 16 hours 22 minutes, and for the main story along with extras, you’ll take 21 hours.

This game includes in total 53 trophies, in which the main game provides 45 trophies, and you can also buy another pack of trophies containing 8 trophies. These trophies help the players to increase their game scores. But collecting all of these trophies means an extended game period. To collect all these trophies, players take 20-25 hours in total.

Why does it Take That Long to Beat Uncharted 2?

As stated before, how long a player takes to beat this game depends on whether he’s playing only the main story, or is collecting all the trophies and completing the extra missions as well. This game includes a total of 26 chapters. If the player is playing the game at a normal difficulty level, then he can complete the game in 11 hours. But if he chooses the hard difficulty level, then it will result in an extended game period, as he will face many challenging battles.

Achieving all the trophies take time, as you can sometimes miss one trophy, due to which you may have to replay that particular chapter or mission to get that trophy. This game has 38 bronze trophies, 10 silver trophies, 4 gold, and 1 platinum trophies. If you wish to collect the platinum trophy, then you’ll have to hold out this game for around 20 hours. The extra 8 trophies from the total of 53 trophies have more challenging missions as compared to other trophies. Thus, it will take more time to achieve them.

For the “Uncharted 2” multiplayer game, there are two modes, i.e., the “co-operative” mode and the “competitive” mode. In the cooperative mode, there are three players included who take part in the gunfights and other missions together. Thus, the cooperative mode promotes teamwork-based missions. In the competitive mode, ten players play against each other. There are four different competitive modes, where these players are divided into two teams. These two players carry out their missions in that particular competitive mode. Thus, the reason why co-operative mode takes more time is that it has only three members, which affects the game and their missions. Whereas, in competitive mode, as there are ten players, it takes less time to beat the game.


An action-adventure game is always fun to play. Many players found “Uncharted 2” an interesting and addictive game, where at the end of the game, the protagonist Nathan Drake achieves success in all of his missions. He eliminates the antagonist, reunites with his love, Elena, and also finds the lost city of Shambhala.

The players had an option at every turn of this game, i.e., whether to play single-player or multiplayer (co-operative or competitive), only the main story or along with the extras. This is what most players loved about the game. Most of the players have also suggested the new players not omit any of the extra missions and collect all the trophies. In their opinion, that is what adds more fun to the game.

  1. The time breakdown for different platforms is really helpful. I’m glad they included that information.

  2. The breakdown of how the difficulty level affects the game time is really interesting. I didn’t realize it would have such an impact.

    1. It’s definitely not for the faint of heart, but it’s a great way to fully immerse yourself in the game.

  3. It’s clear that this game has a lot to offer for players who are up for a challenge. I’m excited to see how it all plays out.

    1. It’s definitely not a game for the faint of heart, but it’s worth it for those who love a good adventure!

  4. It’s great that there are different modes to play, but it seems a bit excessive to spend over 500 hours on co-op mode.
