   Title: Covert Ops: Nuclear Dawn Official Strategy Guide

   Format: Strategy Guide

   Reviewing Monkey: Simi N.

   The Hype: Unlock all 7 scenarios, get profiles on enemies, allies, and weapons, and reveal a secret mission!

      What This Monkey Thought...

   Layout: The layout in this strategy guide is just about perfect. Nice glossy pages and all color screenshots make this booklet nice to look at. It takes the reader through the introduction to the game, and then tells you how to best utilize your character and his weapons. After that, this book takes you step by step through the game so you can get the best ending. Plus, you get all the extra stuff you might want to know about. 5 out of 5

   Usefulness: If you play this game and didnít get the best ending, this book will tell you exactly what, where, and why what you did was wrong. And thatís really what itís biggest use is- to get the different endings. It also gives good advice on weapon and life pack preservation, but I found that the game provides you with plenty of these items, so preserving them was not much of a problem to begin with. 5 out of 5

   Desired Content: Everything you need to know to get and see everything in the game. It also has boss strategies and character and weapons info. It also goes as far as to show how to get every possible ending. The only thing this strategy guide is lacking is a cheat code section (assuming there are cheats). 4 out of 5

   Accuracy: From the character info, to the usefulness of the weapons, to where to find every item, this book is dead on accurate in almost every way. The only thing that I found to be a little off was that this game was much, much easier than the guide made it out to be. 5 out of 5

   The Verdict:

       If you want to know why the ending you saw was lame, or you need help beating the game, you will find everything you need in this book.

   The Good: Nice design, glossy pages with all color pictures, and a totally accurate and comprehensive guide to everything in the game.

   The Bad: This book makes the game seem harder than it really is.

   The Overall Ugly: This strategy guide tells you everything you need to know about this game. So if you already wasted your money buying the game, you may as well pick this up too.

   What it's Worth: If itís too late for you to return the game, you can feel good coughing up $15.00 for this guide.
