    Point made; 23 hours is crap compared to MGS1's play time.

    MGS4 is no HALO or COD. It tells a story much more complex, there is simply no way imo to do that with gameplay only.

    Playtime can be made of lots of things. In MGS1 there is lots of backtracking.

    But apart from that i'm quite sure that MGS4 is much longer than MGS1. And it can be replayed many more times.

    If you skip all the cutscenes in MGS4, the game is not much longer than 5 or 6 hours if you hurry. You can stretch it to 10 or so if you want.

    10 hours full of genius for me, more than enough.

    Seriously, you can't talk MGS with me, for my tastes there's nothing better around

    I know, your always playing the bloody game LOL. But yes MGS4 was brilliant for me as well. Yes overkill with the movies. But very well done none the less

    Putting in my five cents:

    IMHO, there should be no respawning. If you explode, you switch to observer mode. A decent observer mode with options such as switching between the views and people you are observing. Good example of decent observer mode is Quake series. I'd say a respawn in a Wipeout game would be a bit against Wipeout spirit.

    I'd say that on the whole re-spawning is a good thing for online multiplayer. In the time it takes for the ship to explode better pilots will be too far away for the eliminated pilot to pose a threat. For beginner races it will keep the new pilots wanting to play online, I know if I was a beginner and kept getting eliminated I would probably get annoyed and be reluctant to play online.

    For pro pilot races it shouldn't really be there. Pro pilots can still catch up with each other and respawning might mess up the race sometimes if each player is able to constantly eliminate each other.

    Respawning is great for the new pilots that are still getting to know the game but in competitive play I'd rather see an observer mode, like what Perforu said.

    Beginners... online... oh that sounds like a good combination. Unless they play venom in which case getting eliminated should be too much of an issue, unless the player in question is appalling.

    As for the good players getting away I see a few people think this, you realize there are big fights upfront right and a 4 second lead can quickly turn into no lead?
