useless, 10 Feb. 2013
When buying this guide i was expecting, mostly, a detailed reference for all technologies, weapons, aliens (especially a technology tree) and some tactical/management tips to refine my strategy for tackling the classic/impossible difficulty levels.
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.
