If you have any curiousity as to how the real Solid Snake might do his thang in real life -- as opposed to how someone like me might clumsily guide him through mishap after glorious mishap, slaying hundreds of guards and sounding several alarms along the way -- you might want to check out the above video. In the Japan-only DVD Metal Works The Perfect (love that name), professional badasses team up with the minds at Konami to bring you a perfect playthrough of both the Tanker and Plant chapters on European Extreme that will blow your mind. It's absolutely insane -- the player takes advantage of every trick and exploit to zip past guards like it ain't nothin. He or she is most certainly a freakin' robot.

I love speedruns, but not the tool-assisted ones; rather, I like the idea of a sack of meat (read: dude) honing his or her skills so perfectly that they are capable of utterly besting the code that challenges them. Though these perfect-play performances are typically reserved to bullet-hell shooters like Ikaruga and Gradius V, it's interesting to see the same brutal understanding of gameplay mechanic in a style of game altogether different than the shmup genre, like Metal Gear Solid 2

Hit the jump for the complete set of Metal Works The Perfect gameplay videos, complete with slowdown for those really close calls and completely incomprehensible Japanese subtitles!
