4.0 out of 5 stars A survival guide?, 14 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Last of Us Limited Edition Strategy Guide (Brady Games) (Hardcover)
Bradygames have published another great strategy guide. This hardback edition is very similar in presentation to their Bioshock Infinite guide in that it comes with a large card companion which gives information on the contents of the book and houses the Firefly Keychain. This is a replica of the in-game Firefly Medal, is just under 4cm in diameter and has an antique-finish.

The hardback cover is very robust and affords the high-quality paper inside the best protection. The book begins with a survival guide covering the basics, improving your odds and combat. The weapons section details all melee weapons and all firearms from the basic revolver to the assault rifle. The walkthrough itself gives the players detailed maps of every location, shows enemy encounters and pick-ups. There is a separate section on collectibles and the locations for all the firefly pendants, artifacts, training manuals, comics and Ellie's jokes. Multiplayer coverage is comprehensive with all tactics, weapons and maps covered. The back of the book has a tag and trophy list. Most of the unique art is of the locations, weapons and enemies. The guide uses in-game photos throughout.

Those gamers after the "I want to talk about it" trophy may like to know the optional conversation with a woman wearing a cap at the dam is not listed in this guide. Also, the guide lists a conversation with Henry in the suburbs where he talks about barbeques. This optional conversation is not in the game.

There are a couple of gripes: the black hardback cover is easily stained and shows up finger prints. There is no art gallery in this book and some guides have developer insights and/or conversations. This guide does not. But even with a few issues I would still recommended this guide to those gamers who want all the information at hand and in book form.
