How long does it take to beat Uncharted 4?

Like the previous games, Uncharted 4 is around the 15 hour mark. Throughout this time you will consistently travel from location to location, battling constant enemies all while progressing the story long.

Throughout this story, the pace never seems to slow down. Naughty Dog sucks you into this world of thievery and adventure from the first frame, and you are invested until the very end.

If you would like to complete the game alone with some of the side questions, you can expect to spend around 17 hours in the game. There are treasures that are hidden in each level that add to the journey.

If you want to complete the game 100%, which includes finding every hidden treasure and achieving every trophy, then you can expect to spend over 28 hours into the game, though you would have a great sense of satisfaction from your achievement.

All in all, the game is the perfect length. It is long enough for you to become invested in the characters, but not so long that they wear our welcome. It tells its story perfectly and in the end leaves you wanting more, the sign of a good game.

Why does it take so long to beat Uncharted 4?

Like every other game in the series, Uncharted 4 is a series of obstacles and enemies inbetween gorgeously rendered cutscenes. In each location, you will find yourself solving various puzzles, and defeating seemingly unending hoards of enemies as they try to stop you.

Also, there are 109 treasures hidden throughout the game that are an absolute must find for any true Nathan Drake fan. Each one brings you a sense of pride as you sift through the game’s secrets to discover these hidden gems.

The enemies in this Uncharted game are smarter than they have ever been. You will find that they coordinate attacks and work together like never before. For fans of the series, this will be a welcome change.

In the past the gunfights could draw on a bit too long, but in Uncharted 4 I found myself enjoying this aspect of the game more than ever, all while finally being challenged by the A.I.

Uncharted 4 is a wonderful game that is worth the time. I only wish it would have lasted longer. This game is destined to be a masterpiece.
