This is a great book! I've never played MGS 4 since I don't have a PS3 but I think it is close to the game script. Having also read the first two books I think this is the best one but you need to read 1 and 2 to understand this one.

Eye have you!  Since the universe will not allow me to play this game on my 360, I am forced to read the book to find out what happened. I can’t speak to the differences between the game and the book, but from reading the afterword by Kojima it’s clear that Project Itoh (Is that really his name? Sounds like a public-works organization that builds interstate bridges or something.) has retold the story using Otacon as the narrator. It’s easily the most understandable and conclusive of Metal Gear narratives. Managing to summarize and wrap up everything while clearing the slate for the future. Sadly, the author of this book passed away in 2009, it’s too bad because he had a unique relationship with Metal Gear and Hideo Kojima in particular. This is a solid book (sorry) and it is revealing that Kojima let the author filter the story and retell it in his own way.

MGS is the best video game seires made by one mind of a brillant japanese legend so known as Hideo Kojima. Ive played the game since i was a baby and the funny thing is the first one i played was MGS 3! But now i am trying to catch up with the series because MGS V comes out in spring 2015 and i have some major catching up to do if i want to understand everything that happens!
