According to a GamePro writer who will be reviewing Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots in their upcoming issue, the game has long cutscenes, but not as long as 90 minutes.

“I’ve beat the game twice, and am the author of the forthcoming [GamePro] review,” Shuman said. “Ninety-minute-long cinemas in MGS4 sounds like an exaggeration. Like the other MGS games, MGS4 definitely has a cinematic quality. And yes, some of the cut-scenes in the game are elaborate and occasionally lengthy. But not a one, to my recollection, even approaches 90 minutes.”

It’s good to hear. I didn’t want to sit there most of my time playing just watching the scenes. For people who don’t care about the story, they have confirmed that cutscenes are skippable.

    When I first saw “90 minutes” I just assumed it meant all the cut-scenes put together equal 90 minutes. That I could see especially with a story driven game like MGS.

    Still, I’m curious to know what the longest cut-scene in MGS4 is. 20 minutes? 65 minutes? While I’m a sucker for in-game cut-scenes I think it would be cooler if Kojima added the ability to interact with cut-scenes ala’ The Bourne Conspiracy.

    Actually wouldn’t care if the cut-scenes were 90 minutes. I’d probably only watch them once anyway and skip through them when I kick the can.

    damn, I was looking forward to that 90 min beast.

    I figure the last one in the game is over an hour. And there probably is a 45 min one in the middle of the game to reveil some crazy plot twist. But I suspect most are a reasonable length.

    Well I do have to say, Umm bummer, I wanted to see something like that length because I do want the whole story to be told in a way that I will finally understand it…even though I do, but I still have questions, but I know they will though, I own every Metal Gear game, there is in the US…I love MGS Period.lol
