When it comes to games like Wanted: Dead, there are often questions about length. Some games have short stories, but tons of extras, additional modes, or countless unlocks. Given Wanted: Dead has most of these things, players want to know how much time they need to set aside if they want to experience it.
How Long Does it Take to Beat Wanted: Dead?
Like most games, length depends on play style, and overall ability. I would estimate the average player could finish Wanted: Dead in 5 hours. If you go after every collectible without a guide, maybe 7 hours, with finishing all the optional stuff potentially hitting 10.
That being said, assuming you have the skill to beat it without much trouble, it’s entirely possible to complete Wanted: Dead in roughly 2 hours and 30 minutes. This gives you approximately 30 minutes to complete each stage, something that is more than doable if you’re constantly pushing forward.
Outside of the main story there are several mini-games, and training missions. One of them, Space Runaway, can take 30 minutes to an hour to complete. The others are more traditional mini-games, such as a claw machine, which ultimately depends on how much time you want to invest playing/mastering them. Finally, the optional tutorial stuff can be speed ran in five minutes.
