I'm a completionist and usually buy guides for certain types of games rather than scrape all over the internet. I've had solid guides from Prima before, but this one is basically useless. It's poorly laid out and missing significant content for those hunting trophies. Even simple things like in the first mission where a callout box for needing to complete the tutorials to obtain a trophy aren't done and/or aren't done effectively. It's also missing (to the best of my ability to decipher) a useful set of references to where the eBooks and other pick ups are on each map. (The maps themselvse are also only minimally useful.)The Human Revolution guide by a competitor was MUCH better constructed and did a better job of walking you through difficult stealth sections if you were going for Pacifist / Foxiest of Hounds than anything I've seen so far in this guide.PowerPyx has a good walkthrough available online with some videos for trophy hunters and I would recommend checking that out for free rather than wasting your money here. The book has some good art... but that's about it. Going to be much more leery about buying Prima guides in the future versus Brady or others.
This guide does not really explain how to get trophies/achievements, it does not have a list of codes or passwords and it does not have maps that show where all items are. For the "Ballsy" trophy it literally says "you know what to do" and others tell you to win a conversation but not how. If you have never played a video game before you might find some helpful strategies or tips but if you played Human Revolution and loved the guide this will be a disappointment. The in game tutorials give you almost all the strategy contained in this book minus the walkthroughs that I personally found to be either lacking helpful information or completely unnecessary.
The guide to Human Revolution from a different company was SO VERY WELL WRITTEN OUT. Tons of info, maps, keys, etc to show every item, achievement, path, enemy, and mission objective.Words cannot describe how terrible this guide is. There is no order. I feel like I'm going crazy trying to figure everything out. As a completionist, the whole reason I buy guides is so I can find everything and do everything.For example, early on a "side note" mentions that there is a side mission at this point in the game called "The Calibrator" I spent 20 minutes searching the guide for the mission, any details on it, or where to even get the mission with no luck.This is honestly pathetic. Do not waste your money.
I'll keep this review short and sweet. This guide is pretty much useless. No maps showing where to find loot. Hell, no real maps at all that go into detail further than the in-game map. Most of the breakthroughs are incredibly vague and don't give you information you are looking for to complete mission. I regret this buy.
I'll keep this short and succinct. The maps don't show much of anything. No details on how to get trophies/achievements. No tips on getting through certain areas sneakily. But worst of all there's no details on things like the 75 e-books scattered throughout the game or things like a certain Penguin related Easter egg that gets you a praxis kit, trophy/achievement, and bonus XP.Overall this is pretty much a bare bones guide which is easily outdone by various walkthroughs you can find on the Internet. Avoid buying this at all costs.
This is the most useless guide I've ever read in my entire gaming life. There's absolutely nothing of value here. It is a short guide that says absolutely nothing. When I was reading this guide I had to ask myself "Who is this guide for?". I think the answer is simple. Nobody!
A great book if you enjoy the artwork and like back story stuff and if you just need a hand here or a hit there, but it is completely worthless if you're trying to use it to find the best path through the game. The actual game guide starts about halfway through the book. Everything else is about gear enemies back story and art. Usually I like this stuff but in this guy that just seems to obscure with the players actually trying to find.
I'm also hugely disappointed with this guide. Comparing to the detailed and comprehensive Human Revolution guide this one is too superficial. Even gaming websites have more info. Sometimes, the Deus Ex team like to use Russian words in their products. Well, then I'd say that this book is Khaltura!
