The latest issue of PSW tells us that Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots will have massive cutscene times. Metal Gear Solid 2 was famous for touching the 45 minute mark for a cutscene, but Metal Gear Solid 4 has reached the 90 minute mark.
“MGS4‘s story is massive. The videogame equivalent of all three Godfather movies on one disc,” says the mag.
“As you’d expect, you’ll spend a lot of time watching cut-scenes, so if you found previous games’ story exposition laborious, then you’d better find yourself a nice cushion and plenty of teabags in readiness for MGS4‘s.
“They can be skipped, but you’ll be missing out on some of the finally crafted examples of FMV footage anywhere in gaming,” the article boldly proclaims.
