     " Okay, it doesn't actually deliver a hooker to you door, but it's only a hint book man, give it a break. "

      Title: Grand Theft Auto III Vice CityHint Book by BradyGames

      Format: PS2 Hint Book

      Reviewing Monkey: Chimpan-A

      The Hype: A best selling sequel and arguably one of the best games in 2002, and you're having trouble reaching 100%. No problem- BradyGames is here to help. Here now with the answers is the GTAIII Vice City hint book.

      What This Monkey Thought...

      Layout: It's a pretty straightforward book and all of the information follows a fairly logical path. The book follows your game through the various missions, across both halves of the map. Plenty of screenshots to guide you through, showing you every little detail, which is quite nice. 4 out of 5

      Usefulness: This book will certainly show you how to get to 100% completion of the game…because we know how much that matters to you. There are little tips and tricks on just about everything there is to do in here, including maps of where to find all of the hidden packages and rampages. The strategies the book gives are mostly easier said than done, and will depend greatly on your personal skill level to implement. They at least lay it all out for you. And after all, a hint book can't do everything. The maps even have an indication of how high up certain items are, making it far easier to tell where to look. With the added instructions, it should be a cinch to find it all. 4.5 out of 5

      Desired Content: It tells you how to get 100%. It tells you where to find all the rampages and weapons. Okay, it doesn't actually deliver a hooker to you door, but it's only a hint book man, give it a break. Really there's not a whole lot you could want that isn't delivered in this book. 5 out of 5

      Accuracy: Most of the height indicators in this book seem pretty accurate. The mission details are well placed as well. Generally speaking the men they say will be there are where they say they'll be. I've yet to find any real glaring errors in the book. Follow these tips, my fellow monkeys and you should be the local kingpin in no time. 5 out of 5

      The Verdict:

       If you're having trouble finding everything you know is out there, this is the book for you. It's got everything you need covered. Follow the instruction herein and soon you two will be walking down the street and identifying what make the local cars are.

      The Good: Excellent source material for all your video game car stealing needs. (Please note that using this book to steal real cars is about as effective as using this book to fly)

      The Bad: At no point do hookers come to your door while reading this book. I checked. Often.

      The Overall Ugly: You know, given all the celebrities in the game, wouldn't it have been cool to get a celebrity hint book writer? Like Michael Chrichton? No? Alright, I've got nothing.

      What it's Worth: About 20.
