My favorite part is how the description says 600 pages, but Amazon's product details says something like 432 pages. Either way, sounds like a neat guide to consider getting, even though I've plowed through the game multiple times.

I'll read everything that is in the book on the internet about 12 hours after people start buying it.

The original guide was absolutely horrible and I got $10 that says it doesn't include all the chests as it says.

I agree. I bought that 14 lbs piece of crap and barely ever used it. Mass Effect 2 was also useless. It was so vague about all the choices you could make, ME1 guide broke everything down and told you all the outcomes.

Worst guide ever (IMO) is a toss up between Borderlands and Fallout 3. That guide was just horrible IMO as well. The way it explained the missions with flow charts was waaaaay more complicated than necessary and that's coming from a guy who works with flow charts and tables daily haha.

The best IMO was the Morrowind guide. They broke down EVERYTHING in that guide, which is pretty notable considering the size of the game.

Never played Morrowind but I own it on xbox. I couldn't get into that or Oblivion, Fallout just clicked with me for some reason though. Maybe its the guns lol.
