Ok walkthrough and reference but mediocre strategy guide 5 May 2005
By Indy Reviewer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Prima's Guide to Empire Earth 2 is an ok reference guide and has good walkthroughs for 4 single player campaigns. Unfortunately, it's not much help with the most difficult part of the game - unit management and overall strategy - and doesn't include quick reference materials. I knock off a star each for the lack of in-depth strategic help as well as a value proposition that isn't great, but since the game didn't include much of this material as it should have I still recommend purchase.

First, the positives. This guide has very, very detailed walkthroughs of the single player scenarios for America, Korea, and Germany, along with Turning Point. In addition, it has detailed numbers on every unit and special unit in the game along with technologies and upgrades. Finally, there are a few extra bonuses, like resource locations on the premade multiplayer maps (so make sure never to agree to a game on one!) As such, this is a useful reference as it has a whole bunch of things that weren't included with the game as they should have been.

However, this disappoints on the strategy side. While they do discuss civilization strengths and weaknesses, there's not a whole lot of analysis. I expected a detailed breakdown of civilzation versus civilzation by era; instead, the best you get is about half a page per civilization total. Hints and tips are equally disappointing. (An example: "Pay attention to civilzation bonuses." Wouldn't have thought that one up on my own.) Moreover, as Sierra skimped on certain essentials that should have been included with the game - like a technology and unit tree - one would have expected they'd have been included with this guide as say a end-cover foldout. They weren't.

Still, this is worth buying solely for the unit reference material, at least until some devotees of the game put that on the web in accessible format. It just that this guide could have been far more.

As with many of these books this is more of a long owners manual than anyting else, it does give a good explanation of the game play, but not a lot of hints.
