Without this guide I would have NO clue what to do in this game...seriously. The guide is a must if you want to sucessfully play the game. It does make the game a little less fun having to pause, read, play, repeat. It can also be extremely frustrating trying to figure out where certain locations are that the guide talks about..then again the game play is also frustrating at times. The guide I noticed is detailed in some areas, but then vague in others. There are some missing words/spelling errors scattered around the guide. Overall get the guide if you are getting or have the game.
