    I think I'll do that as well.

    Man Japan sold 300,000 copies in one day and that isn't including the bundled edition.

    Is it just me, is or is this one of the most wonderfully polished games you've ever played?

    I'm actually playing MGS2 first before I get into MGS4, just to get up to date with the story. But you can also to that without playing the games by watching the cut scenes posted on youtube, which is what I did for MGS1.

    You're REALLY missing out by not playing them. I'd recommend buying MGS Essentials Collection for 30 bucks. You're going to miss a lot of the stuff by just watching cutscenes on youtube.

    Is this game as much of a movie as the others? I keep hearing people down it by saying - "have fun watching the game". But I only played 1 MGS (the one that came out first on ps2, i guess?) so I'm not too familiar with it.

    There's a lot of cut scenes, but except for one part at the end of the first level they aren't that long.

    It took me over 3 hours to pass the first level and i'd say 30 - 40 mins was cut scenes (including the opening credits which is fairly long).

    Kamikaz - I agree. But my comment was really directed to bigtitan, who apparently played the game but doesn't remember much about the story.

    It can be long-winded at times I guess, but as a MGS veteran, I honestly don't notice. I only play when I get off work and don't have too many distractions usually, but even if I do, you can pause all cutscenes.
