How long is the story mode?

If I watch the cutscenes (are they worth watching?) and just play through does it take a long time?

Longer than Portal 2?

Not sure how long it as, as I'm not even half way through. I just started chapter 9 and I've played for (I think) around 4 hours.

I don't think you can skip the cut scenes.

I'm guessing you just want to play the mode for the two characters, otherwise why the hell would you want to skip the cut scenes? The story is actually really cool and very well done. I love how they've gone into details about all the characters (example; the current Sub-Zero's real name)

80% of today's 'gamers' are puppets, told what and how to play, void of any imagination and creativity. Cut your strings and be free with me.

It took me 7 hours to beat the story mode. No, you can't skip the cutscenes the first time through unfortunately.

Story mode is 4 hours tops.

You've all been Caged by this mans awesomeness. IMO though It might only be 4 hours tops if you set the difficulty down to beginner and just mash through everyone.

I think it took me 6 hours roughly. I lost a good bit to a couple cheap fights so I can see someone better/luckier maybe shaving off an hour.

I turned it down to beginner and mashing is not an auto win,it still tough for me at least.i'm at the 50% mark and 7-8 hrs seems like a fair estimate
