Short, To-The-Point Reviews: Metal Gear Solid: Digital Graphic Novel
Brettan D, Amazon

Summary: The game is a "digital graphic novel." I knew what it was and what it was about when I bought it. It's the retelling of a great story with beautiful art, illustrated by Ashley Wood. The game is exactly what I expected.
Summary: Konami is typically at the forefront of amazing technology, in-depth gameplay and enriching game stories and dialogue, mostly thanks to the genious that is Hideo Kojima, the head of Konami's KOJIMA PRODUCTIONS and mastermind behind the METAL GEAR SOLID series. This isn't so much a game (as stated before) as an actual comic book.
Summary: I like this title a lot. It isnt a game but a digital graphic novel. Imagine what you would get with a comic that had been created with After Effects and audio. It has great graphics that are combined with motion effects and sounds and also special hot spots. I have just started reading it and it will take me a few hours to read and interact in the three different user experience modes. It is a lot like watching a movie that unfolds at your own pace.
Summary: I been a big fan of MGS ever since I played the Playstation MGS, which I loved and can't wait for the HD game of it. So I was Very happy to get hold of the MGS Digital Graphic Novel for the PSP and would love to get hold of MGS DGN 2 If it ever come out. So if your a big fan of MGS, getting this is a must, it's good just to kick back and play and the story's the same and great to watch.
Summary: Reviews the whole of MGS1, which i've never played myself, and keeps you in the loop about the series. It's great, for anyone who wants to start playing the MGS series, since it is so in-depth storywise that it may take a few times over to get a grip with it. It's also good for those who want to go back to the original game and remember some of the memorable fights and moments, from being introduced to Solid Snake to Revolver Ocelot's secret talk at the end of the game.
