I bought this a few days after buying my copy of Hitman Absolution-Professional Edition and I was amazed.

The price is reasonable for what is included. My hardback book came with a free download of a electronic version of the same guide, so I can access it from a tablet, mobile phone or laptop/computer. The book itself is really well presented with its hardback cover. The book comes with a red piece of ribbon, probably like a bookmark so you can easily get back to that page you were on, or pick off where you left off last.

The guide is really well thought out and detailed. Each and every mission is explained step by step in order to help you complete the mission easily enough. There are also other alternative methods, such as if you fancy using stealth strategies to your advantage. There are different paths and options to fit around your play style. Detailed maps show you everything from hiding places, additional checkpoints, weapons and disguises.

If your a trophy/achievement hunter like myself, there is also a section on each and every trophy/achievement depending on which console you are playing on of course. A great investment for any Hitman fan or gamer.

I was able to obtain the platinum trophy, by using this guide!

A must buy.

I have been using Prima strategy guides for the Hitman games since Hitman: Contracts. Hitman absolution Strategy guide is a very bad strategy guide. While it looks cheesy and attractive on the outside its content is completely rubbish. This guide is very poorly structured with a lot of spoilers for the game's story , no warnings for the spoilers and the worst part is that it assumes that everyone plays this game on Normal difficulty. So if you do not play at this level directions and tips are completely useless and inaccurate. It does not even cover every challenge for every mission, images are useless apart from the maps and there is no continuity at all on the walkthroughs. Overall a very bad guide which I recommend you do not buy, Internet sources are far more helpful than this. Furthermore I e-mailed Prima Games about the spoilers in their book and I have been completely ignored. If I could get a refund, honestly I would, but I can't. What I can do though is warn people not to spend their money on such a low quality product.

I have to agree completely with the other review of this product.
I hate writing bad reviews, but I just simply can't find a good aspect to this book.
It is hard to follow. Instead of making the information easily accessible, they have opted to fill the pages with trivia style boxes containing tips normally seen on the loading screens.
Half of the information is the objectives (which you can see by pressing the select/back button) and other pieces of information that are explained to you in the game.
Plenty is missed out, and just as the other guy said, completely irrelevant unless you are playing the game on normal difficulty (in which case I doubt you would need a guide for).
I would like to mention that I probably wouldn't be classed as a 'hardcore gamer', and actually bought this book to help me complete the game without running and gunning my way through on the easy setting. I have to say though, that this book has given me absolutely no help whatsoever.

This guide is extremely helpful. It covers all of the basics and goes in depths on the harder stuff, but it could have more detail on where to actually go during the missions as i've found this is lacking, but an exceptional guide, well worth the extra money. [well presented etc.]
