How long is the Campaign?

The guide lists 100+ hours for 1000 but I'm not interested in the MP mode.

Can anyone give a rough guesstimate how long it takes to do one playthrough of the campaign?

Considering the difficulties don't stack I'm wondering how much time I'm willing to sink into it.

Thanks!

Depends on the difficulty. I went through on Corporal first, then Private, then General, and (haven't finished though) Lieutenant.

The corporal run was about 6 hours, it's not that hard, plus I sort of knew the game from playing it on the PC. This will be your longest run, if not General will be.

Private you can literally whip through EVERYTHING. I did this in 2 sessions, roughly 3 hours total. This is also the difficulty you should get all the other single player achievements (such as the "beat a level using only X weapon" where X is the weapon, like railgun or blaster)

General is hard. Real hard, but not impossible. If you save often, it'll probably take you about 8 hours. Took me about 10 because I don't save often.

Lieutenant will probably take in-between 5-8 hours, depending on your skill. After beating General it's a cakewalk in comparison, but it's still tough.

Honestly, it'll take maybe 20 hours total to do all the SP stuff. It's not a long game, and only General difficulty is tough.

Awesome thanks for the breakdown. Just picked this up a couple days ago for Quake 2 during a weak nostalgia-ridden moment and finding it cheap didn't hurt either.

Once I finish Quake 2 I'll start digging in.

General will take quite a while...

Save, save, and then save again.....

I have been saving after every kill, nothing worse than having to replay the same bit over and over again.

Save, save and save again......has taken a good 8 to 10 hours...

Almost there...only the last level to finish on general.

Lieutenant was not that hard at all.......general sux ! !
