When Brady Games stopped publishing Command & Conquer guides in late 1997, Prima Games stepped into the breach as the official strategy guides to C & C games. It's now 10 years since the move, and Prima have just released the official guide to the latest C & C offering, Tiberium Wars.
It provides a comprehensive coverage of the game, with well-written walkthroughs for GDI, NOD and Scrin missions that provide unit descriptions for units that have just been introduced in the game, hints and notes on efficient gameplay and screenshots that do refer to the captions underneath them. There's also multiplayer strategies and maps, unit descriptions and a fairly useful hotkey card for even quicker gameplay. The guide is so official that there's even a list of credits at the back of the book of all those who made the game.
It's a great change from Prima's first guide for C & C (Command & Conquer: Retaliation, 1998), and yet another great guide it is. The only things that could have possibly been put in are cinematic spoilers, but that would take the fun out of following the story through. Keep up the good work Prima!
