5.0 out of 5 stars Multiplayer fans will benefit more 7 Mar 2011
By Parka HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
Length: 1:42 Mins
First of all, the difference between the regular and collector's edition guide is the hardcover, additional concept art and a quick reference card. The Collector's Edition Guide has 416 pages instead of what's listed elsewhere (including on Future Press website).

The walkthrough is detailed but not necessary because the game is not only linear, it's guided linear (press Up on the D-pad to get directions). It is useful if you want to get trophies that don't come automatically with campaign progression.

The bulk of the book in on the multiplayer component, and that's where this book is brilliant. It covers in excruciating detail all the things FPS-crazy players will want to know - yeah, the numbers, ranking, experience, stats. Each player class comes with an in-depth analysis on their abilities, weapons and usefulness in different game modes. If you're new to Killzone, this is a quick introduction on the classes.

The 8 multiplayer maps are also well covered. There have both schematic and satellite views. On them are locations of the spawn area, ammo boxes, turrets and weapons. Each map is loaded with strategies specific to all the game modes, the favourable player classes and certain areas are zoomed in for future analysis.

At the back is the gallery which features beautiful concept art of the game. There are various interviews with the staff who talks more on the background of Killzone, the story and the production side.

On the last page is a code you can use register the guide on Future Press website to redeem 3 Unlock Points for unlocking abilities and weapons. Not much, but I like little extras like this.

This is a very comprehensive and useful guide. Multiplayer fans will benefit more.

4.0 out of 5 stars Who Needs PS3T? 25 Mar 2011
By Jay D
Format:Hardcover
Promise I won't rave on like my review of the game.
The guide is really a must have for KIllzone fans, giving background info and interviews along with in depth analasys of all weapons for both campaign and multiplayer. It comes with 3 skill points in game, you have to register the guide with the publisher, my code was invalid but I got a valid one after a simple email.

I can't stress this though, you don't NEED this guide to play the game. Or get every trophy. Or to enjoy the multiplayer modes. This is for the fans only, but it is a very nice collectible edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful edition. 4 Mar 2011
Format:Hardcover
I have the Killzone 2: Collectors edition guide and loved every page of it. So getting the guide for Killzone 3 was a no-brainer. I will start with the aesthetics firsts:

The cover of the guide is beautifully designed, being hardback is also a plus. Every page in the book is full of images and colour. The guide itself is fantastic. It goes through everything, from different types of controls, the history of Killzone, the characters and amazing description of the weapons and their stats.

The walkthrough caters for elite difficulty which is excellent. It gives the player great tips on how to effectively complete each level. Extremely detailed maps are included on each page of the walkthrough showing ammo boxes, turret emplacements and objective markers. Also included on each chapter of the campaign is a small story synopsis just incase you forget what happened. At the end of the guide is a very extensive trophy section,which explains how to achieve every trophy in the game.

Where this guide really shines is the multiplayer part. The guide covers EVERYTHING to do with the multiplayer portion of the game. Massive detailed maps showing everything you need. It perfectly explains the roles of each class depending on what map is being played. Extremely important if you want to excel at your chosen class.

A beautiful art section is also included with a few interviews from the creators themselves.

All in all this is an amazing guide and you will not be disappointed if you purchase this guide.I spend an hour or two before I hit the bed reading this most nights, it's that good.Well done future-press!!!

Francis.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exceptional guide for any fan of the game 28 Feb 2012
Format:Hardcover
I've gotten other Futurepress guides and this one is no different. Aside from the rare grammatical/editing slip, this guide is full of useful info for both casual and core gamers. Everything from a detailed backstory of the Killzone universe to insight from the developers fills the more than 400 pages. Get one before the price goes way up, because it will, just like the Killzone 2 guide has.
