About the Author
Mike Searle remembers playing the simple yet addictive Missile Command, and the days of Atari Adventure, where your square hero could end up in a hollow dragon stomach. His desire to play computer games into the wee hours of the morning really took hold when his parents made him play outside, instead of on the console, so the first chance he got, he bought a PC to play the Ultima series, Doom, and countless others. Mike started working with Prima Games in 2002 and has written more than 30 strategy guides, including Lord of the Rings Online: Shadows of Angmar, Jurassic Park: Operation Genesis, Dark Messiah: Might and Magic, Pirates of the Burning Sea, and several guides in the Tom Clancy Ghost Recon and Splinter Cell series. He can’t wait for thought technology, so game controls can catch up with his brain and stop all that needless in-game dying. At least, that’s what he keeps telling himself about his FPS kill ratio.
