4.0 out of 5 stars Better than the game?
Piggyback's guide to Resident Evil 4 was a book that enhanced the gaming experience. This guide is written with the same dedication and expertise and is full of unique artwork and as much information as any Resident Evil 5 fan could need. It covers the PS3 and Xbox360.

The book begins with a foreword by the games producers then covers fundamentals like choosing...

3.0 out of 5 stars Whats happened piggyback?
I usually adore piggyback guides for there inclusion of all possible information about a game that not only gets you quickly and accuratly through a game but all additional character and plot information. However...this time that have taken a "no spoilers" approach which would be all well and good (i can understand why some people just don't want to know by reading the...

This review is from: Resident Evil 5: The Complete Official Guide (Paperback)
Piggyback's guide to Resident Evil 4 was a book that enhanced the gaming experience. This guide is written with the same dedication and expertise and is full of unique artwork and as much information as any Resident Evil 5 fan could need. It covers the PS3 and Xbox360.

The book begins with a foreword by the games producers then covers fundamentals like choosing the right equipment, health gauge management and the co-op system. The walkthrough is full of maps showing the locations of key items. The best tactics to use in problem situations are explained. All hidden treasures and secret items are shown. All weapons and their statistics are profiled but the best part of the book is the bestiary - the artwork is first class. All the game's unlockables such as special costumes and collectable figures are shown. The Mercenaries game receives comprehensive coverage with all characters profiled and all arenas mapped. The book ends with a behind the scenes feature and a concept artwork gallery.

The very best strategy guides are those you can pick up and enjoy without even playing the game. This guide is no exception. For any gamer wanting to get the most from Resi 5 this guide is probably essential.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Guide for a Excellent Price, 10 May 2009
I got this guide for £10 from Amazon and it was worth every penny. From the secret locations for every gem ,weapon and BSAA symbol to the complete walkthrough of the actual game this guide has everything and is a must buy for any gamer who wants to 100% Resident Evil 5. The guide even has a seperate section that gives tips and tricks on how to survive professional mode and complete it as quick as possible. It also gives indepth information on every character and level in Mercerneries mode aswell as a Bestiary that covers the weaknesses for every monster and boss. It even covers how to get all the unlockable costumes and weapons.

The collectors edition of the guide is a product for any fan of resident evil. It features some nice artwork at the back of the guide and is also the hardback version of the guide so its not going to get ruined through you constantly using it.

This guide is not a spoiler, it actually enhances the gameplay by filling out characters and weapons etc. It is a well produced guide with artwork which enhances the playing experience. Yes it is to an extent a walkthrough but it still leaves your survival in your hands. It offers advice, rather than holding your hand.

In summary a valuable companion to the actual game and good value for money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Collector's Guide, 23 July 2010
Why get this instead of the 'normal' edition? Because if you like the RE series and this game you get a wonderful item for your shelf, and some extra art works. Didn't regret buying this, no real fan should be without it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential for fans of the game, 3 July 2009
Beautifully presented, very well written, expertly laid out, it completes the RE5 experience perfectly. Masses of detail, artwork, stats, as well as the hints and tips needed to find all the games numerous treasures, secrets and unlockables. Just a pleasure to leaf through, never mind actually use.

On a par with Piggybacks amazing MGS4 guide, which also augments the game experience in a deep way.

I chose this rating because I adore this franchise and this book met every standard I could have thought of. It was in perfect condition (aside from some VERY minor scuffs on the spine.) Overall, it was in excellent condition and I couldn't have gotten it better.
