I buy guides after I've been through the game to see if there is anything left to dig out.
Generally they tell me little I didn't know already, and the production values are 'adequete' at best.

The game features simple, but varied missions available in campaign mode (which has some quite funny scripting and double entendres), vs play against CPU or link ups against other GBAs
You have a variety of units: from naval landing craft to attack helicopters - and each varies in its strengths and weaknesses. And you have to use them in combinations to succeed - no good having a… Read more
