Amazon Reviewer: gabe "I give this guide 5 stars because I like how it goes thru every mission with tips. The missions are sort of in Chronological order. Meaning main story missions that haven't been unlocked shouldn't be before a mission (or path of missions) already available. This isn't a problem for me, but if you're planning on following this guide mission by mission, you should be able to complete them all no problem. In this guide you will find several maps of Los Santos revealing weapon, armor, health and special quest item locations. You will also find a full vehicle/aircraft guide pre GTA update 1.06. These are all conveniently located at the beginning of the guide so you can get straight into wreaking havoc as soon as you get into the free mode part of story."
