This game is absolutely stunning. Drop-dead beautiful (in terms of gameplay, graphics and storyline: triple threat!), seriously. If you don't have this game, buy it. If you don't have a PS3 to play this game on, buy the PS3 and buy this game. Even if you haven't played the previous MGS games, you'll appreciate this game just as much as the die-hard fans. The MGS retrospective series on GameTrailers would be helpful, though (to get a basic gist of the story up to now).
This game is definitely going into the hypothetical vault of great games.
@ khmer: playthrough time depends heavily actually. I'd say a good 30 or so hours. Though there's this one trophy or whatever that requires you to beat the game under 15 hours (and other conditions), so it's quite vivid.
