Grand Theft Auto V Strategy Guide Review

Grand Theft Auto V - RealGamerNewz - PS4 X1

If you need to find the most detailed and complete guide to GTA V, then look no further. The team over at BradyGames has put together a fantastic signature series strategy guide to any GTA V knowledge you may be searching for, all in one great looking package. From the minute I first saw this guide it just screamed collectible with just under 500 highly detailed full color pictures made from tear resistant pages front to back to ensure long lasting use while keeping it looking fresh. I knew this guide would be a serious commodity to the story mode section of the game but it also completely covers the entire online mode as well all platforms in this one book. The table of contents is set on two open pages with only eight categories so you can see everything the without having to flip over a page.

Every single stat from each character’s details to weapons, vehicles, and everything you can think of is broken down to help you make those educated purchases without having to interrupt any of your time in game. I especially enjoy the map sections that have been fitted perfectly to the pages with high resolution making it super easy see and navigate all areas without having to stop traveling to change screens.

After using this guide for awhile I would say it is definitely worth picking up, whether you have been playing GTA V for awhile and want to find something you have been looking for a long time, or your just starting out and need help getting around and understanding the game and characters functions. Two thumbs up for BradyGames for putting out a quality product that will remain useful and more importantly useful! So go get your own, because this one’s mine. There’s still time before Christmas if you know anyone who is playing GTA V on any console they would definitely appreciate this signature series strategy guide. At $24.99 it is a bargain.

Main Story Missions: A complete walk-through of the game, you won’t miss anything and following these pages while playing through the story mode will ensure that you get the most efficient progress towards unlocking all achievements. Each contract is broken down into extreme detail with step by step, maps, side notes, and even easter egg nuggets of information. It is also shown how much progress towards a platinum trophy is gained per mission.

Vehicle Showroom: GTA V has tons of vehicles, and with even more expanded for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One it’s impressive to see them all in one place. Top Speed, Braking, Acceleration, and Traction are broken down for each vehicle in the game (which is an insane amount of detail for a guide of such quality). It would have been nice to be able to see the Armor / Health attribute of each vehicle, but we’re not sure entirely how that works and why it was omitted. There could be development reasons, it’s hard to say exactly. Some vehicles have an extra mode such as the ability to get Turbo or Custom Exhaust systems. It’s nice to be able to rapidly thumb through and have those abilities highlighted on these pages. This saves an incredible amount of time car hunting for the right vehicle that can do it all. Now you just find it in the guide, then get it in the game.

Stranger and Freaks, Random Events, Hobbies and Pastimes: This section includes everything you can do outside of the normal story missions for Grand Theft Auto V including Arms Trafficking Air, Arms Trafficking Ground, Assassination Missions, Bail Bonds, Parachuting, Endless Summer: Taxi Missions, and that’s not even half of them. Custom maps for particular moments in the game when players are looking for Triathlons, Races of all kinds, or just exact weaponry.

This guide has everything you need, even an in-depth look at GTA Online, now if we can just get Heists released that would be great!

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Strategy Guide Review

unnamed

The latest title in the juggernaut FPS franchise is finally here and BradyGames has released a strategy guide for both its returning fans and newcomers alike. Did BG deliver a guide worthy of the asking price, or should this be avoided at all cost?

The writers did a wonderful job covering the singleplayer portion of the game. Pretty much everything a player would want to know, is presented with pinpoint accuracy. For players new to the Call of Duty franchise and unfamiliar with the new mechanics, the specialized training section goes into great detail explaining the basics; from something as simple as sprinting, to info on the new EXO suits and their upgrades. Fans who are already up to speed will most likely skip this brief portion of the guide but it is great that the option is there.

Advanced Warfare’s action packed campaign mode has received the best coverage I’ve seen in a strategy guide so far. Reader are treated to complete step-by-step walkthroughs of each mission, complete with information on every objective, soldier loadouts, enemy types, tactics and nicely illustrated maps. The writers should be commended for the great job they did of avoiding any major spoilers, even with the quoted dialogue and in-game screenshot in each chapter.

Achievements/trophy hunters will be happy to know that those tied to the campaign are covered as well in the walkthroughs. Not only does the guide highlight the digital rewards that are unlocked for beating each mission, but also lets you know when it is the perfect time attempt to get them and how. So don’t worry about missing the “Flying Ace” achievement/trophy, the guide will let you know what mission you need to play and provide and accurate and detailed instructions on how to unlock it. Compared to how they were presented in the Destiny strategy guide, this way is much more convenient and a welcomed change.

WP_20141112_001

Campaign coverage

Speaking of convenience, each mission chapter also features locations on Advanced Warfare’s “intel”; in-game collectibles scattered throughout the campaign. Instead of cramming all intel coverage at the end of the walkthroughs, the writers wisely integrated them (As seen in the pic above) in each chapter. Each is accompanied with a detailed picture of their locations and accurate instructions on how to find them, so completionists will have no issues during their search. Every achievement/trophy is listed with proper explanations on how to unlock them. This along with collectibles were two of the biggest areas BG dropped the ball with the Destiny guide. I’m happy to say that isn’t the case with this time.

As with previous Call of Duty games, Advanced Warfare’s main draw is its competitive multiplayer and its portion in this guide. Similar to the singleplayer section, there is helpful coverage on the basics for the newcomers and in-depth information for seasoned players. Weapons stats, attachments, perks, EXO abilities, games modes, Scorestreaks, you name it. Everything you can think of and more is talked about extensively, with accurate photos and descriptions. The readers are also presented with some helpful tips and strategies. Want to know which perk is best suited for which game mode, or what weapon works best from a distance, then you’ll want to read up on this section of the guide.

While the weapon stats charts are cool, it is worth noting that the game’s multiplayer will see its fair share of patches throughout its lifetime. This means that some weapons will see either their stats increase or decrease, based on community feedback, making the stats portion inaccurate once that happens.

WP_20141112_002

A look at the Scorestreaks

The writers went all out with their coverage of the game’s multiplayer maps, providing highly detailed illustrations and highlights for each spawn point and objective location. Readers are offered strategies for each map that I can personally say, have proven to be very effective. How effective depends on your skill level as a player, as well as your teammates but you’ll be glad to know that they are useful.

For those looking to play the game’s “EXO Survival”, it was given the same level of detail for the most part. You’ll learn the basics, about the objectives, types of enemies you’ll face, Scorestreaks you can use, upgrade stations and general strategies to help you survive. One minor gripe with the co-op mode coverage is that it doesn’t cover the bonus zombie wave, or offer any info on how to unlock the zombie skin for use in competitive multiplayer. This is most likely not the writers faults, as Sledgehammer Games tried to keep it a secret up until the game’s launch, so it isn’t a major issue.

eGuide: Every physical copy of the Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare comes with a code for an electronic version of the guide for free. The guide is accessed on Prima Games website, which means players can study map layouts and strategies on the go, or you can just give it to a friend/relative.

Final Verdict:

The is a very impressive guide. With the exception of one little omission in the co-op mode, the writers still covered everything the game has to offer with amazing detail and accuracy. Coverage for the game’s singleplayer is the best I’ve seen/read so far. The strategies for multiplayer and survival mode are effective and can lead the player to victory on the virtual battlefield. The weapons stats will become inaccurate as the months but if you are looking for a guide, that covers everything else and does a damn good job doing it, then purchasing this is a no-brainer.
