According to recent reviews of Need For Speed: The Run, the title's campaign mode can be completed in just over 2 hours which is peculiar considering this NFS was marketed as being story driven.
This time around, players are taking a journey from San Francisco to New York along side the high stakes racing scene. A trip that normally takes a week can be done in just 2 hours. Of course, reviewers also stated that this was excluding cut scenes, retries, and menu sequences, but ultimately, most games of this genre run significantly longer.
Need for Speed: The Run is out now in America, so hopefully this news won't deter too many away from purchasing the title.
Update: EA has been in contact to inform us that they believe the campaign for Need for Speed: The Run will take approximately 6 hours and were keen to stress that with the multiplayer, the game offers no end to gameplay possibilities.
