How long are the Metal Gear Solid Games?

#1promo123Posted 3/23/2013 7:52:24 PM
I plan to download 1, then play the HD collection, then get 4, then maybe Revengeance. About how long should each game take to play?

I beat MGS1 in like a weekend. MGS2 in a couple of weeks or so. Took a while with both MGS3 and MGS4 because I got 100% completion for the former and was often distracted from playing the latter.

If you know what you are doing. Probably 2 to 5 hours. If you are just going through it casually, 10 to 20. This is because you might have to repeat certain areas as you are unable to get past a trap or a boss. Good game, but they are designed to be like roller coaster rides. Intense but quick. Now if they made you repeat the same level over and over again in order to gain experience points. Then it would take about 50 hours like an RPG.

3 ~ 15-20hours for the story. +~8-10hours with Metal Gear 1 and 2(which comes free with it)
4 ~ 15-25hours.
Peace Walker ~ 8-10hours for the story. +~70-100hours for ALL the extra content.
Rising ~ 8-10hours

when it comes to MGS 3 and 4 the times can vary wildly depending on how you play.

My first play through was around 15 hours for each

One and two can be finished in roughly two hours once you know what to do. A first time through them will last far longer though. Three and four are much longer even when you know what to do. Peacewalker is a different beast.
