The locations of the red balloons are pretty accurate except for one or two which are still pretty easy to find so I didn't really have any complaints in that department.
It's in the Rampages where this book really falls down, some aren't where the book says they are and some aren't what the book says they are. Two examples of this are Rampage 4 which should be located in a downtown parking lot but isn't anywhere to be seen in that area, I had the blip on the map in the exact right place (Checked and double checked about 10 times), I even had the picture on my TV screen looking exactly like the picture in the book but it definitely ain't there. Another inaccurate one is Rampage one, it's in the right location this time but it has the wrong description, the book states to trash 15 vehicles in two minutes with a Rocket Launcher when in actual fact you have to trash 10 vehicles in two minutes with Molotov cocktails. That was just the first of many inaccurate descriptions I came across, the book says that one is with a sniper rifle when it's actually a Katana and many' many others.
This book should be taken off all store shelves and re-issued with accurate information in it. Come on Brady games, GET A GRIP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Overall, perhaps because of the previous high standards Brady guides have encouraged me to expect I was severely disappointed. My first instinct when things aren't where they are is to think I am doing something wrong, so when it turns out the book is the problem then I do feel it was a waste of time and money- there are better red balloon guides (the only reason I really bought it in the first place) for free on the net. If you want help to get 100% go elsewhere.
The guide has not been amended from the PSP guide - DESPITE the fact that there are 5 extra rampages and 6 extra unique jumps on the PS2 version. Also, 1 rampage and 2 red baloons weren't correctly mapped.
To make matters slightly worse, there is no map for the police bribes (as there usually is).
I've bought this from Amazon and I'm seriously considering returning it.
