You'll find your answer from the designer (and his wife) in those comments:

From Kane Klenko:

It does. My wife even asks to play this one often, even if I don't need to playtest. That doesn't normally happen.

2 player games are 40-45 minutes. 4 player is around 90. 3 player is in between.

What rules are changed? Any spots blocked off?

I hope that it helps!

The only change I see in the rules is with the set up. You take 6 intel tokens from the two colors that are not in play and you place them on the board using the Agency cards.

I love this game 2 player. Even though the action circles may not be as full of dice in a 2 player game vs a 4 player game, there are really only 2 spaces available to place on each circle based on the die/dice already played there no matter the number of players.

The tensions in the game are the same, even with 2 players because of this. My personal favorite is 3 player just because there's more competition, but I'm guessing the 2 player game will be the favorite for a lot of people. And it's a game with good depth that can be played in 45 minutes with 2 players.

I played 2p last night and really enjoyed it, though I think it shines more with 3 or 4. Having more people means more turn-over in the agency and mission cards, which in our game was a bit stagnant as we started out in the same general regions. I don't think a single purple region card was pulled the whole game. Otherwise, it plays pretty much the same.

Just house rule a variant to remove one every round or something.

The Gameboygeek review just came out, and he said he actually likes it best with 2. I think it will just be personal preference as to which player count you like best, but the game itself works well across all of them.
