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.
