The guide is about 320 pages in length and is effectively split into two sections - ODST and Halo 3 multiplayer maps. For anyone not interested in playing Halo 3 online, bear in mind this guide will give you 150 pages on the 24 multiplayer maps, including tactics and weapon locations. In all honesty, its OK, but you learn maps by playing on them and I'm not convinced that this works.

The first 170 pages detail the ODST Campaign and it works very well. Each level is broken down into sections and you are given very good advice on completing the game on each of the game's difficulty levels. A run and gun technique might be offered for normal/easy; whereas a "use rocket launcher on this turret" would be offered on higher diffculties. The author recommends different weapon loadouts for each level and difficulty and it's comprehensive, if not essential to follow. I have my own favourites anyways (carbine as the battle rifle is sadly omitted).

Where the guide breaks down for me is with the audio diary collectables. There's a fascinating side story (detective story really) about a girl, Sadie and her efforts to flee New Mombasa during the Covenant invasion. Its really well told and there are achievements for collecting some or all of these Audio Diaries. You might think that buying the official guide would give you the locations of all 30 diaries, but, constant reader, you'd be wrong. Bungie, the game's developer are notorious about spoilers so you'll get vague reference to the diaries but not their locations. This is disappointing in my opinion for those who have invested in the guide, particularly as a map with each location is readily available from a Google search within hours of release.

So, all in all, this is an average guide. For collectors its probably essential. If you're struggling with the game, it will help you; but all in all I'm a bit disappointed with it.

I bought this guide to complete my collection so I did not use him during the game but I can say that the quality is like the Halo 3 and Halo 2 guides. And like every guide, it adds an extra dimension to the game: you get to know many small things that could make a difference and the large amount of tips and tricks can be helpful. ODST was and still is a great game by the way (I missed Firefight cause I had no friends on Xbox Live that have that game...).

another highly detailed guide for this game. it covers the campaign very well but the focus on the mutliplayer modes is very impressive, with details on tactics and what to use where
