How to improve.
1. Buy a decent layout editor, MSPaint doesn't cut it.
2. Actually play the game.
3. Use better quality materials, not school toilet paper.
4.[...] This is a dictionary. Use it.
5. Here is a radical concept, proof read your "work", is all the text legible? (if not see 1) is it accurate and useable? (if not see 2) is it spelt correctly? (if not see 4)
Much of the game is randomly generated missions, so the guide can only offer general advice - so if you couldn't suss out what a smoke grenade is for it MIGHT prove useful. Because of this, it's a pretty thin volume at 191 pages, of which 29 are 'concept art' with many other pages padded out with oversized pictures. The multi-player section lacks any maps at all, relying instead on a couple of screen shots of each level, although we are treated to a couple of pages of suggested squad line-ups (concentrating on 'fun' themes rather than tactical merit).
Quite possibly the worst strategy guide I have ever owned!
Found none of those.
The guide provides basically the same information that is provided by the interface during gameplay.
The layout is quite bad, featuring very large pictures and small (and badly contrasted) text.
Bad becomes worse in the closing section of the guide, that depicts totally useless preliminary sketches of the game items.
In the end, no information that you can't get by yourself while playing is provided.
Printed manuals....but it's not perfect!! If you want a complete reference or an excel-like sheet for everything
Be carefull! But honestly is a very good guide!
