to start:
the book has Excellent maps that show the locations
of all the collectables like dog tags and legendary weapons.
they give complete descriptions of all the regular weapons AND the legendary weapons
all the MP marine loadouts are also listed including upgrades and weapon
attachments. all xeno types are also explained.
the full singleplayer is well documented and has excellent pictures
the item and weapon lists are complete though short and brief.
if you're a big fan of the aliens game then this book will prove
invaluable since it will be a great help finding all those
hidden collectables and legendary weapons. otherwise if you'd
rather find these on your own the book really isn't a must have
after reading it to be truthful it really didn't tell me much I
didn't already know (other then collectable locations)
even the info for Multiplayer isn't a must have. but it is nice
knowing all the upgrades.

Page quality: they're glossy hi-res pictures and the maps are flawless (5 stars)

Item lists: could provide more info otherwise good enough (4 stars)

Ease of use: pretty simple guide to use and Very Easy to follow 5 stars

Overall: like I said above if you bought the game
and are enjoying it to the point you want to complete
100% of the game then this guide is a must! otherwise the wiki is fine.

Although we haven't had to crack it open a whole lot while actually playing the game, it's a great reference for no other purpose than to browse the layouts, learn more about the characters, the weapon specs (awesome, by the way) and all sorts of detail regarding the aliens encountered in the game. There's a lot of things we've missed along the way through the game that we'll go back to after finishing the last chapter (plenty of dog tags, classic weapons, weapon upgrades, etc.). Worth the price, especially if you're a fan of Alien.

My nephew loves all things Aliens and video games, but he does not love books...unless it's about either one of these 2 things. He studied this book - loved the pictures and information. Beautifully printed with great colors and a wonderful binder that upholds against boy hands and multiple read-thrus. Plus smooth pages allow for soda to be wiped off without ruining pages :)

I wish there were more pics and less reading, haha! But overall, I really needed this help of this book since I'm new to the game and got killed on the lowest level on my first try. Hopefully now I wont get killed so much! It IS very helpful and recommended if youre not adept at playing games where critters jump out at you, keep coming at you and try to eat your face! HA!

Strategy guide is very in depth walking you through the whole game from top to bottom. Ex: weapons, monsters different strategies. But the overall games lacks in many many ways.

Some of the maps take a litle getting used to but it is very informative especially for extras like the dog tags. Really explains everything well. Glad I picked it up.
