This guide book is really comprehensive. The beautiful illustrations, such as the one on the cover, are just the beginning. Inside, you'll find details to all the missions, side missions, items, weapons, shops, challenges, mini-games, bounty, treasures, trophies and so much more.
All the information is concise and nicely laid out and easy to follow. The screenshots are satisfying huge as you would expect from a 340-page thick guide.
What I like particularly is the section on the game basics/logic, or in other words, the law of the land. It covers the honor system, bounty basics, law and enforcement. It's very helpful to understand the game mechanics at the start, especially on how your honor and fame affects the people around you.
There's also a huge foldout poster map that covers all the towns. Behind the map is a beautiful illustration Miss MacFarlane holding her shotgun. This map is in addition to the other maps provided. All of them are properly labeled, making sure you can locate what you need.
To get 100% completion, you need to complete every task, even the mundane. Events like Stranger tasks (18 in total) only scores 0.5% each, similar to finding a piece of new outfit. I personally won't be able to discover all those side missions by myself, ever. Whether you want to collect wildflowers or raid a bear's cave, there's is always something written.
For multiplayer, there's a list all the unlockables and how you can get them. They are things like guns and horses, etc. There are also many tips on the multiplayer gameplay provided by the Rockstar multiplayer test team.
This guide will complete your Wild West experience. Seriously.
