I don't usually play 1st person shooter games, but I'm addicted.

Although the guide, purposely it seems, leaves out certain important information, it's appendixes were helpful. What ticks me off about these "official books" is the blatant disregard to bugs in the games. There are going to be some, admit it, let us know about them and move on. There is a character that disappears completely from the game prematurely. It's a bug and I spent way too much time running around looking for something th

Because sometimes its easier to look up some character's StoryLine progress without replaying the game a bazillion times (not like played...only about 200 hours ..per system....or so.. ahem)

Well, this is an excellent guide book--just be sure to use the table of contents, as there is no index. Chapters are conveniently named by the quest names f

Video games are a breeze now with a full on walkthrough of what to do when you find yourself stuck. I find it makes challenging games a bit more enjoyable.

I've never read a video game guide before but this really helped me appreciate Fallout 3 much more. But then again, it's not exactly classical literature.

I don't make a habit of rating game guides, but I did read every page of this book seventeen times and can vouch for its completeness!
