My experience with Game Guides is pretty limited and mostly restricted to those offered by Prima, but Piggyback have won a loyal fan here. They just seem to do everything that bit better.
Initial impressions are great. This softback edition is thick and heavy but has a solid binding and the print quality is exemplary throughout, with a nice few glossy flourishes adorning the cover. More importantly there's a thorough Contents list front-and-center that points you in the right direction no matter what element of the game you're looking to master. From the off, you can skip straight to the parts of the book that help with the campaign, the side quests or the Multiplayer, with differing sections under each heading to cover every conceivable question you'd have regarding the game. There's also a brilliant Index at the back where you can even find the game's many islands/sequences all listed by name; that's so important for a big open-world guide like this, but it's a feature that's not always included in a lot of similar Game Guides.
And when you get to the bit you want...heaven. It's written extremely well with some foolproof screenshots overlaid with simple arrows and other indicators which show you the best way to achieve your given goals. This approach extends to not only the main campaign 'sequences' but also the various side quests and collectibles. It seems like every island in the game, no matter how small, comes represented here with it's own little map that offers useful hints and tips on exactly how to nab that elusive Shanty or Animus Fragment.Read more ›
guide delivers with really detailed sections on everything from the campaign to the multiplayer
to extras concerning the greater AC story and future for the franchise.
Black Flag is huge and there are a ton of collectibles so it felt like out of all the AC games this
was the one where I needed the guide the most, and it did not fail in any way literally covering
EVERYTHING the game offers.
After finishing as has become tradition I turned to the back pages to read the speculation about
the story and future for the franchise. Its a great read and guide and I definitely recommend especially
for a game like Black Flag which is so huge and has so much stuff to collect and discover.
The spoilers are kept away from the walkthroughs, though there is the ability to look up more info on the game if you don't mind spoilers. The various islands are alos listed as well what animals, taverns etc you can find. Defintiely buy if you wish to cover all game points or just would like to dip in and out.
If you're looking for an amazing, detailed, professional guide, this is the one for you! AND ALL FOR BARELY £15!
