Make no bones about it Prima's strategy guide for Grim Fandango written by Jo Ashburn proved to be the ideal solution for this almost (but not quite) lazy gamer! I love long, involved and challenging games but I hate getting stuck for too long and here is a guide that gives as much (or as little help) as required. The system of tiered answer that become more specific the stupider you are (and I can be very stupid sometimes!) is not a new idea but the way these clues and hints are set out is truly excellent. They give you enough information to avoid frustration whilst retaining the game's essential challenge. Here is a strategy guide that has been produced by someone who obviously loves the game and it is beautifully crafted. It also contains a narrative account of Manny's exploits in the Land of the Dead, some full colour design sketches and the diary of Grim Fandango's creator Tim Schafer. It truly enhanced my enjoyment of a wonderful game which is the best compliment I can give to the author.

Great book. All the answers at your disposal. Also it joins up thread ends that you may have missed while you are engrossed in the game play. Only loses a star because it's not in colour. If you're reading this then you already know that. I know it would hike the price, but Grim Fandango is all about C-O-L-O-U-R!!! Great to read Tim's diary too.

This has a complete walkthrough but is difficult to use. There is a walkthrough in Chapter 6 and there are game secrets in Chapter 3 so you have to flip back and forth. But, the walkthrough is complete (unlike the Baldur's Gate walkthrough or the Fallout 2 walkthrough) ,therefore, it deserves 4 stars.
