Brilliant San Andreas,
This review is from: Grand Theft Auto IV Signature Series Guide (Paperback)
Brady's guide points you in the right direction, but frankly one feels that the programmers haven't told the authors everything about the game. For instance in the Verdant Meadows flying tests, there is no mention of having to achieve 70% pass mark, which is a bit bewildering at first, when you find out the hard way! Hence there is a need for the free online guide, e.g. by author Rusk, as a second source.
However, this is such a good game, it all adds to the problem solving and difficulty.
What one needs to remember is that there are very many alternative strategies for this incredible production and clearly only the specialist long running sites can cover them all.
The illustrations and layout are excellent, and this publication is a must; but even at some 270 pages not everything can be covered.
I was once a technical author - could I have done better? Perhaps not, so I give this publication a solid four out of five.
