Achievements list? Ummm not in this book...
on 7 November 2012
Will keep this short and sweet - if you've played the game and are considering getting a guide, the chances are it's to assist you in getting all the achievements/trophies (personally I wanted a check-list for the Research side of things in order to see what I'd missed on the first play through). Well sadly there isn't any mention of achievements/trophies...
Much of the game is randomly generated missions, so the guide can only offer general advice - so if you couldn't suss out what a smoke grenade is for it MIGHT prove useful. Because of this, it's a pretty thin volume at 191 pages, of which 29 are 'concept art' with many other pages padded out with oversized pictures. The multi-player section lacks any maps at all, relying instead on a couple of screen shots of each level, although we are treated to a couple of pages of suggested squad line-ups (concentrating on 'fun' themes rather than tactical merit).
Quite possibly the worst strategy guide I have ever owned!
