This walkthrough is one of the bestI have ever read (and being rather bad at finding things in games I have read a few!!) the break down f each stage is excellent and the tips for playing on Elite seem vey useful (although I have nt plucked up the courage to try them yet)
One thing that did puzzle me about the walkthrough is that the book does not show locations of the hidden items in the normal walkthrough as it says it does not want to spoil the suprise unless you actually want to know (I thought people only bought walk through's to FIND the hidden items but obviously I was wrong thinking that)
If you love the game and want to find all of the hidden items the book does make you look in two locations, the walkthrough to complete the game and a seperate section at the back for all of the secrets. I found myself swtching between the two sections so that I could accurately find the items but this was not such a bad thing.
I would recommend this book to those people who are stuck and/or just want to find all the helghast symbols and intel, and the special edition hardback version is a LOt nicer than the soft back (Which I originally bought but gave to my partner)

For a fairly linear game, i was sceptical as to how much you could get from this guide for £12. However i can assure all that my concerns have been thrown out the window and i'm very pleased with the help and technical guidance it provides. the online strategies are ridiculously meticulous, if a bit impossible to carry out in the middle of a fierce battle, still it shows just how thorough Future Press have been. cudos..
A trophy checklist is available at the back which is nice when it's exclusive to one console and there are sections which help explain how to get each one with strategies for online maps explaining the more difficult ones.
As for offline lets just say i couldn't have got the elite gold trophy without seeking its help. well structured, nice quality book and a worthwhile purchase to have it looking nice on your shelf!

I can only agree with all the others.
There is not more to say than it is a GREAT GUIDE.
clear pictures, walktroughs, descriptions, tactics.. and more. it never ends.
If you like the game a lot, buy it! I doubt there is more guide like this for other games.
It's spot on!

This guide covers the online mode(warzone) and the single player campaign.
-Single player section-:
There is a detailed walkthrough for each of the ten missions, each one contains HD screenshots and high quality maps of the whole level. The guide tells you exactly where the enemy is and how to defeat them, each walthrough is approximately ten pages! The "weapons and combat" section provides basic and advanced tactics for every weapon.
The "Helghast" section gives a mini-guide for each type of Helghast, info includes: an HD picture of the enemy type, a small chart listing their healh points, possible weapons and first appearance.
Finally in the "top secret" section the guide details how to unlock each and every trophy, the location of all Intel and Helghast symbols with a screenshot and small map.
It shows how to unlock all of the badges and medals and gives a detailed guide on how to play each class. The best parts are the Warzone map guides, they show points of tactical importance for each game type, Ideal squad compositions and provide double A4 sized tactical maps of each zone.
Finally a guide that actually gives online information other than "shoot and kill everyone"!
Buy it you will not be disappointed.

I LOVE this guide! It is highly detailed for both offline and online. With top views of the online maps, and offline levels. Every enemy is highly detailed as well as every online class. A walkthrough for the Elite difficulty is als inside, but i still have to try it out.
This guide is just THE guide for gaining 100% in offline, and also THE guide for the fanatic online players.
