With regard to NJ's review, it seems ridiculous for someone who dislikes strategy guides in general to pass judgment on one specific guide. It's like having someone who hates action movies review the new James Bond film; the review is bound to be negative regardless of the movie's merits. The reviewer is predisposed to dislike the material. This is a similar situation. Claims like "it shows nothing" are absurd. The walkthrough text and screenshots are complete and thorough, leading the player through the entire game from start to finish. And there are plenty of extras, like a complete list of all available Achievements, interviews with the game developers and level designers, a poster, boss fight strategies, analysis of all the multiplayer maps, and so on. NJ's statement of, "The maps are only good for showing where the ammunition, guns, grenades, and cogs are," should not be construed as a criticism. The maps illustrate every area in the game, complete with the locations of all weapons, items, ammo, every Cog Tag in the game, not to mention area-specific objects, such as explosive tanks. It's difficult to imagine what else, if anything, could have been added to the maps. This is a comprehensive, well-designed guide for a great game. If you simply don't like strategy guides, there's no reason to expect this guide (or any other) to single-handedly change your mind. However, if you enjoy the extra dimension that strategy guides add to your game playing, then this one definitely delivers the goods.
