Metal Gear Solid 4 Has 90-Minute Cut-Scenes? Is Popcorn Included?

metalgearmonkey1.jpgThe Metal Gear Solid games have a reputation for having some really long cut scenes — I still remember being forced to shut down MGS2 partway into a 45-minute long one to meet up with some friends, only to come back later and have to watch it all over again. But apparently the cinematic sequences in MGS4 are topping even those in terms of length. PSW magazine has played through the whole game and notes that there are some cut-scenes in the game that play for about 90 minutes. I’ve seen feature films that were shorter than that. On the plus side, you’ll be able to pause and skip through them, which a lot of people may opt for after about ten minutes. People like me though will probably be compelled to sit through the whole movie just to get the full story, not to mention most of the cinematics we’ve seen so far have looked just plain awesome. The thing that really scares me though is that PSW neglected to mention whether there’s only one cut scene this long or if there’s more. In other words, when you finally do settle down to play MGS4, be sure to clear your schedule.

MGS cut scenes have always been a joy to watch, in MGS2 with solidus vs ray was great! But yeah the whol 90minute thing, I doubt that is one cut scene though, it’s most likely all the cut scenes at the end of the game added up into one time.
5 mins here, 7mins here, 12mins there, added it up .. blah there you go.
