Format: Hardcover
This is essential reading for anybody looking to get the most out of Soulcalibur 5. It is a detailed, we written, we illustrated, easily accessible guide, written with all levels of player in mind. With this, you'll quickly improve all elements of your Soul 5 experience and get so much more out of the game in terms of raw play hours it isn't even funny. A great investment.

Also, one feature I'm personally very grateful for is that throughout the whole book there are code squares that you can scan with a smartphone which take you straight to a video highlighting whatever it is they're discussing in the book at that time. It's a really well put together feature and a very useful addition.

I had the Soul 4 guide, and this is in a different league entirely.

One final comment - a lot of people think that getting a guide to a fighting game is somehow a knock on their pride... This is ridiculous. At the end of the day being a great player is all that will really matter, and people use online resources all the time. This is like the best bits of every Soul 5 forum rolled into one, with hundreds of pages of extra content, no fluff, useful tips straight from the top players(top ranking pros from all over EU contributed to this book), and loads more besides. A great book, and required stuff for anybody wanting to get better at Soul 5.

An ideal gift too!

Format: Hardcover
I like guide books but hate spoilers - so for most games I play the game first and decide on the book after and usually it is not worth it. Fighting game guide books are great because almost by definition they are spoiler free.

The book itself is split into sections, a general intro, game types, details for each fighter. All in all it comes into 480 pages and barely a word is wasted. Written by experts in the game every aspect is explored in plain english. The detail on individual fighters gives not just the moves but when to use them, what strategy to build and crucially how to defend against them. The book is littered with codes that you can scan into your smartphone that links to a bespoke video relevant to that page. Even so moves are well illustrated with key indicators that you will replicate if you pull the move off.

Future Press are building a nice library of decent guides and this one is up there with Piggyback's best imo.

Can't find a fault with this guide.

This book as EVERYTHING and is a must for any fan of the Soul Calibur game.

it can look complex, but only after a short while, you get used to it and then opens up a whole new world of this Game I will be seeing looking at other guides offered up and even some retrospective ones.

If you are not keen on being told everything, but do like to complete every corner of the game, this can be used just to see what achievements can be obtained etc.

You cant begin to imagine how invloved this book is.

ce livre est vraiment un must pour tout ceux qui ne sont pas des pro gamers et aspirent à le devenir. il permet de connaitre le système soulcalibur, de comprendre comment on doit jouer son personnage. il a été écrit par des joueurs reconnus, on peut donc se fier à ce qui est écrit.

This purchase is one of the best I have made a gaming and Soulcalibur fan. It is very insightful and I have had a much better undertstanding of this game through both playing and reading the guide. It has much needed information such as charcater information on how they aim to be played, what their strong and weak points are and how you should fight against ALL of the charcaters that are in this game. It also has some history about the game and storyline which is a nice to read when or if you would like to know.
