Dude don't even sweat those disagrees. They always come from a particular group of idiots who resent what they can't have or understand. Hint: This particular group of idiots associate themselves with a green X.

Hmmm. I must say that book does look interesting though.

MGS2's story was too convoluted for the amount of story time the game had.
A book will do the story well.

Should I read or play the game?

I wonder if it's as confusing as how MGS2's plot unfolded.

Sigh: play the game first and then read the book.

ThanatosDMC: I haven't got it yet but hopefully it won't be as twisted as the game was.

Audio Book?
I'm to lazy/busy to actually sit down and read a full book these days.

I remember having read all the background stories in MGS2, including the very long but fascinating story of [SPOILER] that kind of journalist that decides to go to Shadow Moses disguised as a giant tuna [/SPOILER].

So It wont hurt to read a 320 pages book if it actually brings something new to the game or the overall story.

In the Darkness of Shadow Moses book by Nastasha Romanenko was worth every word. I would recommend every fan to go put MGS2 in and read it. I hope it's included in the novel but I highly doubt.

I read the first book, and won't be reading the second. The author turned snake into a real cornball (in the first chapter, snake says "Merry Christmas" before he knocks out a guard. Snake isn't a bad b-movie action star...

lol. i've heard bad things about the dialogue and how its poorly written. I've always wanted to read it because i'm an MGS nut but now i really don't think i'm missing out on much. 'merry christmas'... *shakes head*
