I just needed this one for my Halo collection. But I wanted more details about the 'world' of the game: it contains not much more than the campaign walktrough. But that's why it is called a guide I guess. It is written in a less serious way than the other official guides and the dark pages gives it a less 'serious' feeling. I had the other guides before this one so my expectations where too high: this one is the first one. Not comparable with the official guides of later Halo games.
As a fan I am happy to have it.

2.0 out of 5 stars Bought it for the maps. They stink. 2 July 2012
By pro_crustes - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I get lost in FPS games easily, so maps are a must for me. There are maps in this book, but I can't really understand them. They use no consistent "upwards" direction, vary in scale for the same place, and don't seem related to their enumerated notes all that well. The notes, also, accompany pictures the size of matchbook covers, wasting the large format of the book (I use a magnifying glass to see them, but, even then, the four-color printing process lacks detail at the size in the book.) Even when I am _sure_ I know where I am on a map, I somehow end up discovering that what I thought was, for example, the door in the south wall to the next chamber, it puts me in a tunnel I can't find on the map anywhere. Or, when I am _sure_ I am on the upper level of a two-level chamber, the map only makes sense if I act like I'm on the lower level. And so on.

If you like the "lore" of a game (details on weapons, vehicles, creatures, etc), you will probably enjoy this. If you want something to help you when you are lost in the game arena, you may well end up disappointed. Amazingly, however, this appears to be the only books of its kind (maybe I am rare in being the kind of person who gets lots in FPS games). So, if you are desperate, you might try this; just don't get your hopes up. Actually, you might just be better off sketching out your own maps as you go along. You'll get killed a lot in the process, but that's why checkpoints exist, right?

4.0 out of 5 stars Think of it as a better version of the Instruction Manual 28 Jan. 2002
By M. J KILLEEN - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a terrific book for anyone who finds the manual that comes with the game lacking. This book is able to go into much greater detail explaining the weapons, bad guys, etc. The few pages of tips/tricks alone is worth it, even if you wish to avoid the walk-through sections.
The way this game works, you have to fight your own battles anyway, so the book just helps you to prepare.
