How Long Does It Take To Beat Spider-Man: Miles Morales?

Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales finally swings onto PS4 and PS5 on Nov. 12, 2020. Critics have already heaped praise on the latest Spider-Man video game adventure, but there are is one issue that everyone seems to agree on: the game is a little bit short. As in, even shorter than people were already expecting.


Shortly after Spider-Man: Miles Morales was first announced at PlayStation's Future of Gaming event, Insomniac Games' Brian Horton told fans to expect a game around the same length as Naughty Dog's Uncharted: The Lost Legacy. In other words, Spider-Man: Miles Morales is meant to be a new chapter and a side-story in the world of Marvel's Spider-Man, but it's not an entirely new full game on the scale of the first entry.

Even so, there's still plenty to do in New York City this time around. With that in mind, let's take a quick look at just how long it might take for you to beat Spider-Man: Miles Morales.

How long is Spider-Man: Miles Morales?

While the developers have been pretty open about the short length of Spider-Man: Miles Morales' campaign, some people are still feeling a bit ripped off. In an otherwise positive review, First Post's Karan Pradhan concluded that the game felt more like a story expansion or DLC than a standalone title, and not worth purchasing for full price. Pradhan wrote, "Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales is like fine dining: a high-quality experience that's over way too soon, leaving you hungry and clutching a fat bill."


Others seem to feel fulfilled by the game's length. Gene Park of The Washington Post tweeted, "Miles Morales felt like a full game. 8 hours is a full game." Park also remarked that Miles Morales had actually taken him a little over 10 hours to beat, even without completing all side missions.

Meanwhile, Push Square reported that it took 12 hours to beat Miles Morales' main story campaign, with occasional stops for side quests and the like. Unlocking all of the game's suits and other extras may add a few hours on. Overall, it's looking like fans should expect to get a little over 12 hours out of Spider-Man: Miles Morales.
