It loses one star for me because there is no additional information or opinion on things like weapons and armor, other than what is already in the game. Also, I think a plot synopsis would have been nice - you have to read through the entire mission walk-throughs to learn the plot details, and the plot sometimes gets lost in all the details.
Good description of all the (non dlc) weapons available in the game and what their stats look like when fully upgraded
Good description of skill tree upgrades
The walkthrough is just screen captures and text. Not a single map, completely useless. It'll tell you approximate locations of where resources or weapons are, but you'll still spend a significant amount of time running around looking for it which really breaks up the continuity of the story (which is one of the greatest aspects of the ME series). Inexcusable, this is certainly a step down from the ME2 guide (which was 1/3 of the pages!)
It was crazy expensive, but the games are a few years old and I think the price right now is pretty reasonable. You could consider getting the book just because you're a dedicated fan of the games. It would make a nice coffee table book.
It's not the most complete, nor does it have everything like the internet. BUT without it, I seriously would have been lost on mission directions because the quest journal is not clear on where to go sometimes and other times it does not update when you completed missions or how you completed them.
1. I took 1 point away because I really don't mind being spoiled by a guide book. But the guide book says it won't provide spoilers. To me, what's the point of a guide book if it's afraid to spoil the reader. So because it doesn't spoil, I wished there were some information it would provide on how exactly to reach the desired ending, ie what dialogues to choose, etc. Instead I had to resort to watching YouTube videos.
2. MAPS!! This book is missing the Galaxy resource map. A huge omission.
