Follow the action of Noble team and prevent the planet from falling into the hands of the Covenant. Halo Reach Signature Series Guide features a step-by-step walkthrough of the entire game. Find detailed maps pinpointing key locations of each area in Forge World, giving you a closer look into the life of the Noble 6 super soldiers. Exclusive maps found only in the official guide show you the locations of enemy engagements, weapon caches for the campaign and more. Existing weapons from the Halo series have been fully updated and there are brand new weapons to help you fulfil combat roles...

Halo Reach: Signature Series Guide is yet another incredibly well thought out and detailed guide book from Bradygames. Over the years the Bradygames logo on any guide book is like a guarantee of quality, they always seem to go above and beyond what most guides offer.

Of course, there's the usual argument. There's no information here that can't be gained for free on the Internet, and no doubt there will be additional tactical information that will help you if you search online. But as an interesting companion to read from cover to cover or pick up and study when you need that little extra help, you're not going to get anything finer than this.

Each page is well laid out with screen shots and official artwork, and it's simple to navigate to the section you're after.

Also, while the maps are well detailed it would have been useful if larger, detachable ones had been included so that gamers could study these while playing - in a bid to get to know the maps quicker when they first start playing.

With an RRP of under £13 (although most online stores are under £9) you'd be foolish not to buy this if you own the game.
