  • Fallout 3 Game of the Year Edition: Prima Official Game Guide

    After finishing this book and i just want to say one word:A great companion to a massive game! And this book is the most wonderful book that i had ever scanned, i thoroughly enjoyed this book deeply. The book contains some information that i had never seen in other books. The detail is so wonderful and necessary. sometimes even i can' t believe it. This book keep my attention for a long time. And i like playing game XMas of coursei like reading this book. And i intend to buy another copy for my friends and i wish they all can like my gift for them. They all like playing the same games and i prepare for this wonderful game book for them. So maybe you wonder why i like this book, then i will tell you why,first it's a strategy guide.What you need some new things, it contains completely here and there. Second,the book is easy to read and you are very easy to find what you need.Third, this book is very useful and i like this point especially.This book can be a lifesaver especially for those who quests for a long ti me and they didn't find anything.I highly recommend this book for squeezing every secret and bit of enjoyment out of this game.

  • Good, but not the best.

    If you want to ask me how about this book and i will tell you it is good but not the best one that i had ever read! This is a good guide to have, n incredibly thorough guide for a very deep game and the book is easy to read, and It has a ton of information that i had searched for a long time. When i bought this book and i had some specific reason and i buy it, and it met my need so i think it is a good book! But flaws in this book first the way its written could have been better. Second the layout can be annoying to some. They should have just explained the quest first after that then add the different ways of doing them. But over all this is a wonderful book that is worth your time and your money I would highly recommend this guide to anyone who has the game. I had read this book for many times and i intend to read it multiple times if i am free!
