Now that MGS4 came out, I want to play MGS1 and MGS2. A friend and I played and beat MGS1 yesterday (took about 10 hours of straight gameplay) Anyway, about how long is MGS2?

I can run through it in about eight hours. That's without skipping cutscenes and gunning through it as much as possible.

I've also played through it about five times, though. I'm sort of a nerd for Metal Gear.

Ten seconds to two minutes depending on your choice of hammer or wooden mallet.

I'd say around 6 hours including all the cut scenes and such for an average playthrough, unless you mess around a lot, then it might take more, but it's pretty linear. If you have Substance, the extra content basically double that.

Ignoring the extra content in Substance, the time to complete the storyline is exactly the same as in Sons of Liberty. I think it might be 30 seconds longer because I think they put in an extra cutscene in Substance, but I don't know. The last time I played MGS2, it took me nearly 10 hours on normal.

jeez...you guys must be ridiculously fast...or cheat...haha

I just played through MGS2 a couple weeks ago before 4 came out and it took me a grand total of 13 hours and 40 minutes to beat it.

First time player of the game, no reapeated (know where to go and what is going to happen) plays, no walkthroughs, great attention to details and some backtracking, no skipped dialogue or cutscenes. Though, I did play through on Hard Mode, that could make for some difference in time.

I should also mention that similar to you, the first MGS took me about 11-12 hours to beat. Also on Hard Mode. and that was last month.

I started playing last night at about 11:30 or so and played for about and hour or so and just fought Olga on the deck of the ship.

I beat it within 8 hours, which is pretty short compared to the first MGS, then again I didn't care much for the game and just rushed through it.
