Uncharted 3 Approximate Campaign Length: 8-9 Hours

We expected Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception to be around 10 hours in length.

And according to GamesRadar's Nathan Irvine, who played an early code of the highly anticipated title over the weekend, we're probably right.

He said it took 8-9 hours to complete although we imagine it'll be closer to 10 for most people, as critics and journalists tend to move quickly through any given game. He also said it was pretty damn amazing (no surprise there) and added that in fact, "everything is bigger." That's obviously in comparison to past iterations but one could interpret that statement in a variety of ways. Uncharted 3 won't be open-ended, of course, but is he implying a little more in the way of exploration? Or is he simply talking about the size and scope of each environment from a linear standpoint?

Either way, it's good to know the campaign isn't 5 hours or something, and we should probably remember that the game is only a few weeks away. Yep, November 1...got your calendars marked?

10 hours, eh? The previous installments seemed longer somehow, but I guess in retrospect they weren't. Oh well, doesn't matter, this will still rock my collection day one!!!

@stay3R, agreed 100 percent. I'd MUCH rather have a 10-hour single player campaign where I adore every minute of it than a 15-hour campaign where I "only" enjoy two thirds of the experience. Make sense?

Kardashians are over rated. I don't get it.

No.

Uncharted is like sleeping with Alessandra Ambrosia or Adriana Lima. Because let's face it... Uncharted is beautiful, funny, and visits places all over the world.

It can't be like the Kardashians... Nothing about Uncharted is plastic.

I think it's short too. I can remember when the 'campaign' length for some of the last wave of shooters was announced to be as short as 8 hours there was a lot of discussion about them being too short. I'm not sure why 8-10 hours is now considered fine, when less than 2 years ago it was considered short.

Why is length of the game such a big issue for a lot of people?? Especially in action/adventure games, but pretty much any genre but RPGs (and maybe a few others like RTS/Strategy), that shouldn't affect whether the game is great or not!

People don't go asking before a big new movie comes out if it's only 2 hrs long, or if it's 3 hrs long, (funnily enough when it comes to movies, it's usually the other way around with people complaining it's too long)

It should be about what they've done with those hours, how fun and varying they are to play and how they are able to keep you interested to keep playing! THAT's what Naughty Dog does BEST.

Sorry but I'm not a collector and won't go my way out to collect all those treasures or something.

And I'm not fond of replaying the same story over and over again, playing on higher difficulty is fun at first but once I conquered it I'll find it boring afterwards.

8-9 hours is short but compared to some which is 4-5 hours long, this is OK but could have been longer.

Crabba,

Why is it an issue? Oh I don't know, perhaps because a lot of gamers grew up on games that lasted more than 8 hours? Perhaps we just like a long adventure? Perhaps it's a value for money thing, or perhaps it's just that we want the game to last as long as possible because we enjoy playing it?

Highlander, I've been a gamer quite a long time myself, basically since the early eighties, and just like today there have always been shorter as well as longer games, and I don't have preference for either. For me it's more about quality than quantity.

Game developers only have x amount of time to develop a game, so either they spend it making a great 10 hour game, or they have to spend the same amount of time on a 100 hour game, which one is going to be more polished, have more attention to detail and have more variation, everything else being equal? For me I'll take that 10 hour version every time*!

I don't care how incredible a game is. I won't be buying it if it's going to get me less than 10 hours of play time.

I get the quality over quantity piece, but my time's worth money. If I can't get at least 2 dollars per hour out of my purchase, the purchase doesn't happen. Shorter games will be bought at reduced prices.

Hm, but if your time is worth money then you'd be better off with a shorter game, since you'd get more $/hr out of your purchase if the game is shorter. The math is a little off there, unless you get paid to play games :)

I agree that my time is worth something, and not just money, so I'd rather play a great game that takes less time and still gives me the same experience and the same amount of entertainment.

"I don't care how incredible a game is. I won't be buying it if it's going to get me less than 10 hours of play time" Are you actually being serious here? So it could be the best game ever made, but you're not buying it because it's not a 20 hour game.

How in the world does that not make sense? I'm not wasting my money on home entertainment that gives me a return of $3/hour or more. My time is worth money, and if I'm going to invest my money in something, it had better be within my range of what I'm willing to pay per hour returned. It's all investment. And when it comes to entertainment, you need to limit your investments since it's not a necessity.

It's pretty A-B-C, actually.

As for the best game evar? Well, no. Not right away, I won't buy it if it's short. Once its price drops down to where I can get at least $2/hour or less from it, then yes. I'll invest. $60 for 10 hours is way too much for home entertainment these days.

If an incredible game will only give me 5 hours, then in my opinion, it's not very incredible. And before I buy it, it will have to drop down below $15 close to the $10 mark or lower. Which won't take long for short games. If it's 10 hours long, it needs to be less than $30 if I'm interested in it. If I'm only moderately interested, then you won't see me buying it until it's around $20 or maybe even less. If that takes 3+ years, so be it. I have plenty of -good- investment titles I continue to enjoy. I bought WKC2 full price, sure, but I'll be getting hundreds of hours out of it.

I'm smart with my money. I don't buy things just because I want it. I won't part with my money unless I can justify the purchase. It's also why I don't live off consumer debt. The only debts I have are long term invested "good debt" like a mortgage. Or my $50k line of credit I borrowed from the bank then invested. (I make more interest off the investment than the interest I have to pay. It's basically free money.)

Underdog, It doesn't make sense because you're referring to it as 'my time is worth money', which per definition means you want it to take LESS time per money unit, otherwise your time is obviously not the issue here.

If you instead simply said you want more hours value out of money in hours per dollar spent, then it makes sense.

I wouldn't agree with it, but it'd make sense.

If you said games are to expensive, now that I could agree with, and the part about waiting to pick up a game to save money, now that makes perfect sense to me.

To me a game just doesn't give me more value just because it takes longer to finish it. No wonder all-multiplayer-shooter-games is the only thing selling nowadays, when so many people have this attitude. I blame a lot of it on games being so expensive now, if a game was more inline with movie prices around $20-$30 maybe people wouldn't be so stingy about it...

Uncharted 2 was a "10 hour" game. Last time I checked the stats screen in single player I had 40 hours of playtime. I also have 40 hours put into the multiplayer, and I'm the definition of a "single player gamer."

That's 80 hours since launch. I'm pretty sure that is the most I've ever put into a console game this generation. So there you go underdog, less than a dollar per hour. Unless you plan on only playing this game from start to finish relatively quickly, and never touch the multiplayer or single player again. In which case, I don't know if I can call you a gamer, and your argument on "getting the most out of your money" would fall pretty flat.

Thats another thing. If you want to get $2/hour, why not buy Uncharted 3 because you KNOW it will be very good, and then make sure you just play 30 hours of it? That would only be 2 plays through the campaign and maybe a weekend or two with the online. And then who knows, it might even be FUN and you'll play even more than that!

Although I'd like more, I'm totally fine with 10 hours.

I wonder what the replay value will be like. In infamous and Heavy Rain for example, you have a motive to go through the story more than once. Or, if the online will hold it longer. I just want my games to last as long as possible, especially if it isn't a yearly franchise.

Then again if we can pay 10 dollars to see an hour and a half film in theaters, or 20-30 dollars for the DVD/BD, the value of 60 dollars is worth it for this. Well, ESPECIALLY this. It'll probably be one of the best 10 hours of my gaming.

I think whats important here is that the ten hours will be jam packed with action, explosions, crumbling buildings, train wrecks, dehydration, gun slinging, hit pounding action. To top it off you will have one of the best stories ever. I played and platinumed both Uncharted's and they both seemed to clock in around the same time when i played them for the second and thrid time.

Whats interesting is that it felt longer. I assert this to the action of the game and the constant feeling of urgency. Seconds seemed like minutes and munites like hours. I don't believe that drakes deception will be any different with respect to time. Conclusion, if you thought the first two were long enough, then the third surely will meet that expectation if not exceed it.

I never understood these estimated times for games. Most of the time they say it takes 10 hrs and I spend 15 easily to complete it, but maybe that's because I don't enjoy rushing through games, don't skip cut-scenes and generally take my time looking around, picking up treasures and what not.

If people are so concerned about how long the game is, why then do so many people say how quickly they finished game x in 5 hrs, when they easily could have played twice as long if they don't rush through the game as quickly as humanly possible.

Hmm the other games seemed longer than that by a couple of hours. I really hope it doesn't take me 8-9 hours that will be a little disappointing. I'm almost certain 1 & 2 took me around 12 hours. Of course I don't rush through the games.

By the way this is my favorite franchise ever, and my favorite games. So that'll be the reason I'll be disappointed, cus I never want these games to end. Not cus I'm hating on the game.

Yeah, if you're going to play on multiple difficulties, find all treasures etc, you'll be spending a whole lot more than 10 hours, that's for sure.

I was looking for the treasures my first time (re)playing through Uncharted 1 (after clearing game data to get the trophies) and was surprised when I ended up with only like 45/60 treasures, they have some pretty mean hiding places for some of those...

Hmmm... I'm not happy with this at all. The previous games seemed to be to be considerably longer than that. If I played through on easy mode and skipped cut scenes, then I could conceivably have finished in that kind of time, but my impression was that both Drake's Fortune and Among Thieves lasted considerably longer than 8-10 hours.

A pity that a game that I am anticipating as much as I anticipate this seems to be shrinking the SP portion of the game. I say 'seems' because without going back and replaying I couldn't say for sure how long it took to play through. However if it's only 8-10 hours, that's going to take approximately 3 reasonable gaming sessions to complete, which for a $60, AAA, blockbuster title seems on the pathetic side. I know that there's always the online aspect and I can replay in different difficulty levels. But you know, Uncharted was never about the online, it was always about the SP mode. This time round the heavy emphasis was on the online beta and online portions.

Hell, in Uncharted 2, it seemed to take an hour or two to beat the train alone. I'm sorry, but this 'campaign length' (I even hate the sound of that phrase since it makes it seem like the campaign is not the central aspect of the game) discussion just seems a bit off base. 8-10 hours is short. Two years or so ago, we bemoaned the length of the 'campaign' in games like Vanquish and the various Call of Duty/generic wargame/shooters. Nor do I remember the story in Uncharted being described as the campaign mode before. Campaign mode or campaign length were phrases used to describe the cursory story mode in shooters.

Sorry, but this entire discussion leaves me feeling extremely concerned about Uncharted 3 and the future of SP games. Frankly, if I am reviewing it - which I shall - if the story takes less than 10 hours to complete, it's gonna get dinged for being short.

I pretty sure u were thinking about RPG games when u made a comment, consider how long rpg's are and getting the most bang for ur buck out of the player. If u don't think a game is worth 60 bucks, rent first. I have some games that I bought for retail price and some of them felt much cheaper.

The game has SP. The game is full of surprises and explosion. Every cutscene is rendered twice, one in HD and another in 3D. Also, it has multiplayer. It has a little bit of everything and everything is top notch, people are saying its 3D will revolutionise 3D like Avatar did HD. ND said it will be the "go to" MP game. ND has put in a lot of work in to this game and you're dissapointed in a 10 hour long campaign? After all that hard work... Besides, I bet thats just the average time on regular difficulty.

I don't recall Uncharted 1 or 2 taking much longer than 10 hours? Unless off course you took your time looking for and collecting all the hidden treasures like I did. I think the 10 hour campaign length for a story-driven game like Uncharted is the perfect length, to be honest. You don't want to drag it out to the point where the gameplay starts to feel repetitive or the story starts to suffer.

To me, and it seems like others, anything shorter than the 8-10 hour mark would be considered "short". Killzone 3 comes to mind. That game takes about 4-6 hours to beat your first time through. To me, THAT is a short campaign.

Uncharted 1 and 2 took me no longer than 10 to 12 hours and that was if I was taking my time. 8 to 10 does sound short but you have to keep in mind the guy was probably rushing through the game. Not looking for all the Easter eggs and treasures. Like TrophyHunter said, looking for all the treasures, trophies and playing the game on harder settings will take you way past the 8 to 10 hour mark. Plus if you want to platinum the game you're going to want to play it again on Crushing which you cannot do until you beat the game on normal or hard first anyway.

I wouldn't worry about the length Highlander. I think it will feel just as long as the previous installments.

Not having played the game yet, I'm not about to pass judgement on ND who has built up plenty of goodwill in my eyes for what they have provided to me in the past.

@AlexanderTH3GR8

Not sure what you're saying there...

@MyWorst...

I'm not giving up, but we (this community) have discussed campaign length in games before in the context of the length of the campaign mode in some of the high profile shooters. From memory, the campaign length discussed at that time was 8 hours, and it was the consensus at the time that that was a short campaign mode, but because the game was primarily an online multi-player game, that wasn't a problem.

Conversely, it was quite clear during those discussions that a short story of campaign length in other kinds of games was considered a problem. So here we are now discussing the SP story mode duration for Uncharted 3, and we're talking about 8 or so hours. So, are we to excuse that brevity of the SP mode because the game is a great online shooter? I'm sure a lot of people will say yes to that. However the Uncharted series has been held up as one of the definitive single player, story heavy games of the generation.

So, if 8 hours was considered short, but OK because it was an online shooter. Why is 8 hours OK for a game that supposedly focuses on that single player story mode experience? Seems to me that a lot of people are forgetting the discussions on this topic in the past, and are letting their perceptions of story length in games be shaped by this trend of multi-player action vs solo, story driven gameplay.

Just for fun, I looked at IGN's review of the first two games, and just like I suspected according to them Drake's Fortune was an 8 hour game "My first trip through Nate's story took me a little more than eight hours to complete" and Among Thieves a 10 hr game "The game is give or take about 10 hours in length".

So, I'm pretty sure U3 will be about the same length as the other two games, since the length completely depends on how you play it.

@Crabba

Perhaps you missed this sentence in my original post?

"If I played through on easy mode and skipped cut scenes, then I could conceivably have finished in that kind of time."

I guess that their reviewer just did that, because if you do anything else, it takes considerably longer. Fine if you want to play all your games as if they were a speed run, an 8 hour duration might do it. But if you're doing a typical play through on normal difficulty and it takes as little as 8 hours, it's a rip off - IMHO. And before any smart butt decides to tell me that Drakes Fortune took that long, or that Among Thieves took that long, think back to how you played the game. Did you explore as an adventurer, or did you charge through like a member of the special forces? If all you do is take the straight line through the game and ignore everything else, you're not - in my opinion - playing the game.

Highlander, No I didn't miss that sentence. I think you missed my point, which is that since the reviewer(s) of both previous games said they were 8-10 hour games just like this guy now says U3 is an 8-9 hour game probably means they're all referring to doing it the 'special forces straight line' way like you mentioned.

So if you spent 10-15 hours playing the first two games (like I did) that probably means U3 will be the same way.

For some reason it seems a lot of reviewers take some kind of pride in saying you can complete a game in as short a time as possible, because I always seem to take at least 50% longer completing any given game than what they say it 'should' take. But like you said, if all you do is take the straight line and ignore dialog, cut-scenes, or any exploration, are you really playing the game?

Well it depends. The first two Uncharted games took me 10 hours or so each.

Through three Uncharted 2 playthroughs my time overall stands at about 33 hours or so.

I think that 10 hours is a good length for a game like this. Hoping I can squeeze 12 out of it, but at the same time, it just looks so awesome that I think ND isn't cheaping us on this one. I think they're not going to have any fat and every moment is going to be pulse pounding excitement.

As long as it's longer than R3's measly (yet very good) campaign which only took me a little over six hours to beat, I'll be happy. Because I know ND is bringing me a first class game that won't dawdle, and will keep its foot on the pedal delivering a perfect story and gameplay experience.

As long as ND continues with its track record, U3 is going to be better than U2. U2 was leaps and bounds ahead of U1 to me to become a masterpiece. If U3 follows suit then this could be one of my all time favorite campaigns. Here's hoping for 10 hours. I think ND knows its stuff and does not want to alienate the SP community with a half hearted effort. Everything I've seen so far looks incredible.

Drake's Fortune was actually really short for me, took me only 7 hrs on normal difficulty. Among Thieves was better, clocking in at 10 for me. Of course, this depends on the difficulty level you're playing on; that tends to add a few more hours.

I'm not worried about 8-9 hours for Uncharted 3. ND obviously has a vision for this game, and it's pacing and storytelling follow suit and coincide with the game's length. Can't wait for this game.

Why does it seem like so many people think the 8-9 hours applies to them? Do you know this Nathan Irvine person and does his gaming habit reflect yours? Did you even have a problem with the playtime of the first two Uncharted games?

I have faith that Naughty Dog knows what it's doing when it comes to pacing. Uncharted 1 and 2 were perfect lengths in my opinion, just short enough to not seem dragged on and just long enough to provide a variety of set pieces.

Too many people are overreacting, give credit to Naughty Dog dammit!

I mean U1 and U2 were around this length and as whrmhmifqk (hell of a name) said, ND does have a vision for the game and they will make it work. This is how they wanted to make it, and it sounds like it's going to be just as long as the other ones.

And depending on play style or difficulty, tack on a couple of hours solely through that as well.

I'm saying it'll be 10-12 for me probably.

So having plats on both games I can say a quick play through on both games is probably about 5 - 6 hours. Though yes my first time around I was treasure hunting while enjoying the story so it would clock in around 12 - 13 hours. I imagine if you skip all treasures, except for those you find on accident, this games length sounds about right. People freaking out about it being 8-9 hours need to sit back and think. It's an action adventure game setup to be like a Indiana Jones flick, it doesn't need to be a LOTR's epic to tell a simple tale. I for one don't care, this game will be great no matter the length. I've waited to long and I want it now. :P

As appealing as a longer campaign time sounds, I really only care for how well the game will pull me in. Which, provided it has a good storyline, time won't really be of concern. In fact, I'm sure that no matter how many hours are put into a game, it'll never seem like enough when dealing with such an in-depth storyline. So, I'm happy with any amount because I'll be too busy wrapped up in the SP experience, I won't be watching the clock for how long the game needs to be, could be, or even should be.

If it's 8 hours long then so be it, if it needs to be shorter as to not let players feel like the game is just dragging out then so be it, if the story requires it to be 8 hours long then so be it, because just like Uncharted 1 & 2 the story is the most important thing, also those ran at about 8-10 hours as well.
I ran through the first Uncharted with a friend of mine in 1 day, starting around 14:00, ending around 00:00, so that logs in at precisely 10 hours.
Uncharted 2 didn't take me much longer either, so I don't see the problem here.

Sure it would be nice if it had a 20 hour long single player, but if that would cause the game to be only half as good, I'll gladly sacrifice the length.
Also, this will be heaps of fun playing online with my friends :D

8-9 hours. Man I sense waaaaayyy too little optimism here in fact its absurd that people feel like it won't b enough. First 8-9 is to subjective a number. It's gonna vary a bit pending on how u play. Second if u were given a meal that's like "European" portions but its the best thing u have ever ate r u really gonna b dissappointed.

People round here seem to be getting way too touchy about their games. We've seen it with BF3 and the beta and now the same applies for UC3. Can we really sit here and turn a blind eye to all the facts here. Guys its naughty dog. IT'S EFFING NAUGHTY DOG!!! these guys couldnt make a bad game if they tried. Same goes for dice. They know their fans and there is no way they will let anyone down If they can help it.

I'm gonna bet that 8-9 hours is going to b the best 8-9 hours in any campaign of any game ever. UC2 already holds that title and if u really gonna doubt ND because the campaign is a couple hours short of what u like then... Well if that's the case then we as gamers will fall under the category "PRETENTIOUS"

I'm usually a bit astonished when reviewers say how long it took them to complete a game. If they say "10 hours" I expect I'll likely spend at least 40 hours at it. And when I'm immersed in the game at 20 hours, I'll think to myself "how in heaven's name did that reviewer complete this game in just 10 hours?". Really. I'm not a novice gamer. I've played dozens and dozens of games, both console and computer, and I've never come close to finishing a game as quickly as a reviewer says.
I'm positive I won't be finishing Uncharted 3 in 10 hours, and I'm willing to bet very few here will finish it that quickly either.
So what's with reviewers and their racing through games... anyhow?

Tacked on? We're talking about Naughty Dog here..not to mention there is no move support.

Also, this is one of the first games to use 3D effectively. You see, because of the cinematic nature of uncharted, it is closely related to movies. ND went to top holywood studios to find out how to use 3D right - where to put the emphasis, as to not make the player confused. There was an article about it about a year ago.

It's probably going to be the same length as the other games. I don't know why people are in a tiff about this. It's roughly the same time as the others. I explored and finished both Uncharted games in about 10 hours, and considering this reviewer probably blew through the game in 8-9 hours just doing the main story with little to no exploration, what's the problem?

If someone takes much longer than 10 hours to finish an Uncharted game on normal difficulty, even WITH exploration, then they are really taking their time. I'm talking about stopping to smell the roses, lay in them for awhile, perhaps contemplate the existance of the universe while they're there, and then continuing with the adventure. That or their skill level with action games isn't quite up to snuff (which isn't bad, just saying it will take more time).

Just keep in mind 2 things:
1) The reviewer went through the game quickly.
2) He is probably fairly adept at games (you know, it being his job to play and write about them).

I can't wait to play this game. Even if it's (oh dare I say it?) 1 hour shorter than its predecessors, as long as it's that much better in terms of quality I'll be happy with it. I hope it is as long or longer, but really it comes down to the quality for me.

For those folks who are complaining about the game being shorter. Are you just trolling? I mean seriously? Have any of you even played the game yet? I'm seriously baffled by some of the comments showing disgust about the length of Uncharted 3. Folks if you didn't know that all of the previous games were short already you have some serious issues. It's a video game first and foremost, grow up. You either buy it and enjoy it or you don't. It's that simple.

Uncharted 2. To be totally honest it could have been shorter. Some of the platforming and fighting the blue buggers and annoying snipers seemed to drag on a bit.

Maybe they've just made it lean and mean!

Let me clarify a bit about why I said "trolling" TheHighlander. At first, if you go back and read over my first comment. I was like hey it doesn't matter the length. We as Uncharted fans should still support it. It probably won't be that short, just one person playing it. Of course the general masses will flock to any negative before anything positive. Thus my conclusion that most of the comments were reaching just plain ridiculous status. Not a single person on this website has played the game yet to even be able to justify the purchase of Uncharted 3. It's just that simple. I suppose though if folks go in with low expectations and then are blown away then it's a win all around. Naughty Dog knows what they are doing. Why does anyone doubt that? If the direction of the game called for it to not be a drawn out epic then so be it. We won't know really until November 1st or those lucky enough to have received it early.

It was on Normal difficulty, and as others have said, he likely blazed through it. I can understand that, I mean it is one of the most highly anticipated games of the year, so I can well imagine that I'm just going to devour it. And I hope that it does take 11+ hours on the first playthrough, as the previous two iterations did. I'm disappointed by this news, but I was expecting it, so it's tempered a bit.

Regarding the length of games before VS now:
The way I remember it the reason why games lasted as many hours as they did back in the days were mainly due to the difficulty. In the 90s I played every single small map/level a huge amount of times before getting to the next. That was the rule.

And if we go even further back in time we didn't even have the option to save progress, so we basically started from the beginning every single time we started a game. Of course it took more hours then...

It is my impression that the general trend is that games have never offered more actual content than today. That's why we no longer have to play the same level over and over, it's no longer needed in order to make the game last a good amount of hours.

Uh...just as a voice of reason, none of the previous Uncharteds were longer than 11 or 12 hours, and I can promise you that an 8-9 hour estimate from a critic will ALWAYS result in at least 10 hours, or more likely...11-12, just like the other ones.

IGN says the RAGE campaign is 10-12 hours. I didn't even reach the second town until the 11-hour mark. That's just one example.

RAGE is a bad comparison. The game is open and has tons of side quests to make it far more than a 12 hour game. Sure you can race through the campaign in a shorter time, but the game offers a lot more. Unfortunately for Uncharted, it's rather linear and doesn't sport much in the way of extra missions/objectives.

It's most likely that the 9 hour mark is accurate and that ND spent more time concentrating on the multiplayer. They did promise it would be better this time.

You can rush through RAGE all you want. It won't be 10 hours.

Trust me, I see time estimates from reviewers all the time, and they're always off. They're always too short, because I know how critics attack games; they go as fast as humanly possible - and this can even include skipping cut-scenes if the story isn't really important - to get things done.

Let's just say I'll be very surprised if I or any normal gamer finishes Uncharted 3 in less than 9 or 10 hours.

Exactly Ben, like I wrote in a previous post, according to IGN the first two Uncharted's were between 7-10 hours, and I know I spent a heck of a lot more than that on one playthrough of both games.

No wonder great games that care about telling a good story with fun characters and dialog rarely get the scores they deserve, when so many reviewers stress through each game, skipping the parts that make games GREAT in the first place...

Wow, how many idiots commented on this article? That's a critic estimate, which is ALWAYS shorter than what it takes for a normal person to beat the game.

Oh yeah, and the last 2 Uncharteds were said to be about this length too. And both of them took me 12 hours to beat.

Oh yeah, and this guy probably played on easy/normal. Harder difficulties will definitely increase playtime.

Oh yeah, and this guy only played the game through once. All the Uncharteds have replay value IMO, so you'll be playing them through at least twice before you move on.

Oh yeah, and this guy only played an early version of the code for the single player. For all we know, it could be significantly changed for the finished product.

Do you guys see all the reasons that support the opinion/fact that you all are completely overreacting to this?
