How long will it take to beat The Settlers 7: Paths to a Kingdom?
I’m proud to say I’ve finally finished The Settlers 7: Paths to a Kingdom. Proud because it’s been sat on my laptop half-finished for almost a year and I finally decided, this week is the week. Surprisingly, the last three missions weren’t as difficult as I thought they’d be. That’s why I can happily report the information you’re probably looking for — how long will it take to beat The Settlers 7: Paths to a Kingdom?
Maybe not as long as you thought?
Average time to beat The Settlers 7: Paths to a Kingdom?
Before I report the time it took me to complete a game, I always ask several gamers I know, that have also finished the game, to let me know the time it took them to finish. That way, I can come up with an average.
On The Settlers 7: Paths to a Kingdom, it took me a total of 22 hours and 24 minutes. That was to finish all missions. Friends who also played the game reported finishing times from just over 21 hours to one friend who said it took him over 30 hours to finish the game, but he tends to be a slow gamer as he’s extremely methodical. He also had difficulty with mission 11 and had to restart it.
Do with the information as you will, but I’d say if you expect to beat The Settlers 7: Paths to a Kingdom within 22-25 hours, that should be pretty accurate. If you’re a fast gamer, you may do it a little sooner than the 22 hour mark. A slow gamer, you may find it takes you a bit longer.
By the way, the version of The Settlers 7: Paths to a Kingdom I played was not the one that required always-on internet, as I will never ever ever play a game that requires that.
Do I recommend playing The Settlers 7: Paths to a Kingdom?
No, I really don’t. I thought it was a mediocre game at best, particularly compared to The Settlers 6: Rise of an Empire, which had better graphics, far more interesting gameplay, and was just all-around more fun to play.
Plus, it took far longer to learn enough of the how the game worked so you could actually play it.
That’s why I’d say, unless you’re a huge The Settlers fan and just have to play every game, I’d give this one a miss and either replay the earlier games or wait for the next. You’re honestly not missing much.
