I have no clue why anyone would say that this book is not fully detailed or hard to follow concerning maps but regardless do not listen.. Here is the gist on the first reviewers issue on the treasure maps which is that there are maps but the in game map they give you for treasures is a scrap with landscapes on them, in order for you to find them you have to use your head.. On the in game map legend, the map that comes with your game, you know the huge one that folds out that you should get with the game and is also in the book.. You must look at your scraps of treasure maps that will show you a tree with some terrain on it, or a rock formation, maybe a river and at that point you have to identify that terrain on your map, once you locate the terrain on your paper map then waypoint it on the in game map legend(easy as can be)
I mean I'm not tryin to be rude but this is a strategy guide not a cheat book, you still have to think and you cant just rely on the book to do everything..Whats the fun in that..Waypoints are going to be one of your best friends in finding all the extras, you can use the nice track feature to lead you to outfit objectives
This book has the full details you will need to complete all missions, all side quests, treasure finds and anything else you will need that I didn't mention..You should have no problem with this book, it's an easy step by step book categorized in sections, I would never have found out about half of the different quests on this game without it..Particularly the treasure maps and also the flowers and hunting achievements which were all really cool to do I might add, not to mention the DLC information that is only available in book form in this game of the year edition..Hey, it's even a hardcover..Read more ›
The guide comes in a nice hardbound cover which I wasn't expecting. There is a decent amount of general information that will help with the 100% completion of the game. Unfortunately, most of the quests are given nothing more than a general overview. Nothing really in the guide to show you which missions to do in a certain order or detailed maps about where to find treasures. I also found that the online wiki gives better information on how to win at the mini-games or how to beat certain missions. Unless you are a collector of strategy guides, the online resources are much more helpful.
This is a great hard cover book that is worth the money if you have spent any time exploring the RDR world. This book throughly covers the complete story and contains information that is not present in the previously published guide book. For example, the book has complete coverage of the Undead Nightmare which is not in the original guide and that I have not see published any where else. The book is worth the price just for the Undead information but it is much more than that because it is presents the whole story in a book that you can put on your coffee table.
RDR is a massive game and this book helps you keep track of where you've gone, what you've done, and little things you may have missed. Since it is the Game of the Year edition it also includes the Undead expansion. I think it is well worth the money for the tips and tricks it offers through out the game.
