Yeah agreed, this guide just reads the achievement description back to you. Worst guide ever.

If you want a bloody better guide then make one yourself!!
Otherwise, don't complain at sombody else's efforts when you haven't made any!

Though these two posts seem completely unappreciative and show no gratitude to the guide or the writer, they do have a point.
I only got this game yesterday and the guide's been quite a bit of use however Palaeontologist - Though it seems odd how people couldn't get any of these achievements, I didn't. I grenaded the bronchiosaurus (spelling?) and the tail fell then i'd barraged the tail a couple times, not realising its the rib cage you need to focus on. The advice for Stay Dry can be used as another example. The description is "In the Slums of Kowloon level, stay along the top pathway in the crumbling sewer area". The guide says that "In the Slums of Kowloon level, stay along the top pathway in the crumbling sewer area" and to "See Post #10 for advice".

They are completely accurate in saying that it's a sloppy job and they do just quote the description directly.

To the OP: Check out DrNo's original guide; for the levels its far more detailed and gives examples and suggestions of ways to do each achievement in the way a true guide should. Easily found in the sub forum but here's a link anyway.

Though you said if we're upset with it we should write our own? DrNo's is spot on imo. It just needs to be used on the main page instead of what's currently there. I'd happily adapt it myself.

Your post seemed quite agressive Fox but if you read through the main guide you'd see they really aren't lying. "Kill xxx People Using This Technique - Kill xxx People with that technique". A few are good, useful comments but for the most part it's a very poor guide.

Such a great game though! My gf bought it me since it's going for 5 on Play.com, loving it so far - Up to the Slums now.
