“It has taken me 28 years to perfect the formula of combining nonlinear infiltration with adventure novel storytelling and the result is MGSV, a game with unprecedented freedom of action and a new narrative approach. As you can imagine, the astonishing depth and complexity of the full experience begs for an extensive guide. This book is the result of many months of love and labor from our great friends at Piggyback and our team. Enjoy!”

“It’s just incredible”
“I am really impressed with this. I bought it on a whim and I’m glad I did. I’m someone who guns for the Platinum trophy with every game I play. I haven’t bought a strategy guide in years, I’ve always just used the internet. Having this guide handy is pretty sweet. There is so much information in there that you just can’t find online, it’s just incredible. I’ll definitely be buying more of these books from Piggyback in the future.”Amazon Customer Review, 09/18/2015
“This guide is a must-have for any collector and MGS fan. However, even if you are the average gamer, this guide is still a great buy. The quality of this guide is brilliant, it offers great amounts of advice to help you get the most out of the game. It is also unique due to the game difficulty being different for every player, so they cannot offer a step by step completion guide, instead it gives you superb tactics and locations to give you the best chance of achieving the outcome you want.”Amazon Customer Review, 09/08/2015
“The king of strategy guides”
“Simply the best! Quality! Quality! Quality! Piggyback makes outstanding guide books and adds a little swag, too. Thick paper, tight hardcover and spoiler-free descriptions. Hands down the king of strategy guides!”Amazon Customer Review, 09/01/2015
