Coming from Skyrim and its official guide the ACR one looks a bit small, but its really not.
It's split up into several sections and has a small navigation menu on each page to the right
which makes it very easy to know where you are and to find what your looking for.
It provides a good guide on the main sequences and memories with handy tips, the pictures are
annotated with arrows showing you the best routes and how to get full sync on all missions.
There is also info on side quests, tips on how to earn money and rebuild efficiently, detailed
locations of all the collectibles like data fragments and memoir pages. It's all in here.
There is also a nice chunk on the multiplayer explianing everything and providing info about
characters, maps, weapons and giving some nice tips and strategies along the way.
Finally there is a reference and analysis section which goes over the ending and provides some
explanations and theories as to what happened and where the series is to go from here.
All in all its an excellent guide, paper feels quite thick and quality, and although its not a
hardback it still feels good and sturdy. And for under a tenner i'd thoroughly recommend it.

The product is competitively priced and covers every aspect of the game to allow those like myself, who wish to get the complete 100% sync, to do so with ease. The book manages this without ever spoiling the plot of the game or ruining any surprises in store. The book covers the storyline missions, the additional content ( collectables ) and there is a helpful section which offers tactical and navigational advice for the online multiplayer mode. I may be biased as the assassins creed series are my favorite games however i have tried to be objective, its just i cant fault the book. I have purchased the special edition of each game in this series and I have also purchase the guide to accompany each game and found them to be an essential accompaniment to the game. Worth every penny!

Buy it if you want to play it yourself. DO NOT buy it for your better half (very loose term!)if you value your relationship as this will make you a gaming widow. While initially I found that a bit of a bonus, I eventually grew weary of being told all about it, having to watch it on the telly if i enetered the lounge, and being greeted in an Italian accent morning, noon and night. Blokes - you'll love it. Women - who knows?!
