Metal Gear Solid, a video game I grew up on and it's probably responsible for me playing video games today.

When I saw this graphic novel based on my favorite video game series, I had to check it out.

First of all there are going to be 2 opinions you hear. One of them from people who have played the video game and the second from people who have not played the video game.

For the people who have played the game: The game is almost exactly the same as the grap

This was a lot of fun, and gave a lot of nostalgia. Even though its exactly as the video game, shot for shot, it still was fun to read, and a great reminder of the story of the series. The illustrations, even though they are cool beans as illustrations, they're a bit hard to follow storywise, hard to notice who is speaking to who. That said, it still is a lot of fun.

Based on the PSone video game so players of that will recognise the storyline. Quick read with nice artwork.

Le comic book du jeu vidéo qui se déroule comme le jeu vidéo. Où l'expert Solid Snake se voit rappeler toutes les bases (s'équiper en armes et munitions, bien se planquer) tel le joueur newbie qui découvre le jeu. Bref, c'est laborieux ! Heureusement, le style graphique, très coups de pinceau rappelant les arts du jeu, rattrape le coup.

This manga is based on the video game. To all those who love the game, this is an amazing tribute.
