Has anyone else read the MGS novel? Im halfway through and so far I am loving it!
No I haven't, but I probably should. What's it about?
Its a novel transcript of the first Metal Gear Solid game written by one of the authors of James Bond.
Heres the synopsis:
This explosive Metal Gear Solid novel ventures beyond the thrilling videogame and delves into the dark heart of Solid Snake’s world!
Highly skilled former FOXHOUND agent Solid Snake is called out of retirement to do what he does best–neutralize a crisis of epic proportions. A deadly team of renegade FOXHOUND operatives has taken over the nuclear disposal facility on Shadow Moses Island in the icy Aleutians. If their demands aren’t met, a powerful, top-secret weapon will be unleashed upon the world.
Solid Snake’s mission is to breach the heavily fortified base to rescue hostages and to destroy the superweapon. His only obstacles are brainwashed commandos, DNA-enhanced troops, and six first-rate killers with extraordinary abilities. All alone in hostile territory, armed with nothing but his wits, Snake has only a snowball’s chance in hell of taking out his target and keeping nuclear nightfall from descending on the earth.
Im almost done with it and as soon as I am I will be reading the 2nd one. Sons of Liberty.
Just wondering, does the novel explains events or facts that wasn't in the game?
I didn't know that there was a novel for the Metal Gear games. I hope there is a
novel for the first ever Metal Gear game, so I can read it and understand more
what happen before Metal Gear Solid.
Would you like a cup of tea.....
Yeah i read it. It explains things pretty wells. Events such as Snake's childhood and early training are revealed. Most of the events from the game are the same, they're told in a more believable way due to the change in form of media. Some of the jokes get lost in the transition, because the tone is very different from the game. The book is more similar to a traditional spy story....(the author wrote a James Bond novel).
