    The two negative reviewers seem to have forgotten that there is no law about using cheats or guides when gaming – each to his own. Some people will slave away at a game for weeks refusing to get help, others rush through a game in a few hours by following a walkthrough to the letter. NEITHER WAY IS WRONG. It’s no-one else’s business how you choose to play your games. Personally, I like to try to make it through on my own first, but if I get really stuck I’d rather have the answer to hand than spend ages getting nowhere. And despite all the advantages of the internet, some of us still take pleasure in a well-produced book.

    Piggyback are a small company who have been producing guides for a number of top games (including the Silent Hill and Metal Gear Solid series) in Europe for a few years now. Their guides are always beautifully produced, vastly superior to either Prima or Brady’s efforts in terms of art design, and packed with clear information – and this Halo 2 guide is no exception. I’m really pleased to see their work is now available to USA gamers as well. Take it from me; if you want help with Halo 2, this is the guide to have

    It has its uses, March 14, 2005
    This review is from: Halo 2: The Official Game Guide (Paperback)
    The Halo 2 campaign mode is simple enough that most players won’t need a guide to negotiate it. The campaign is pretty straightforward in design; unlike some games (such as GTA), detailed level maps aren’t really needed. However, the guide offers many extras that make it a worthwhile purchase.

    For one, the detailed maps of the campaign mode offer weapon and vehicle locations and enemy weaknesses, useful when one’s plasma rifle or SMG is running low on ammo and a pair of Hunters are closing fast. The detailed information on weapons allows newbies to acquaint themselves with Halo 2’s large array of available armament and vehicles. Veterans of the original game will quickly become familiar with the new weapons of Halo 2. (Of course, there’s something to be said for learning as you go). The guide also offers detailed information on the various creatures of the Covenant, adding to the ongoing story of Halo. A note of caution, however: If you don’t want to spoil the ending, don’t read the last chapter of the campaign mode. (I made that mistake…it was still cool, though).

    The best reason to get the guide, however, is for the multiplayer maps, which include weapon and vehicle locations, strategic points for ambushes and sniping, detailed maps, and tips on setting up games and clans. Charging blindly into Halo 2’s XBox Live levels can be suicidal; most of my friends who play on Live credit the strategy guide for giving them a heads-up on where to find what they need. So the guide does have its uses beyond the usual campaign walkthrough. Especially recommended to those who are new to the Halo universe.

    I hope this review was helpful

    This guide was okay. Plain and simple. If you are stuck and don’t know where to go don’t use this book. One of the levels of Halo 2 the directions were so confusing I got lost for three hours, not knowing where to go (I know that your thinking “How can you get lost in a video game?”). However I would recommand this to you if you are one of those gamers with a good sense of direction. This would serve to you as a constant reminder of what you are going to do, not where. The multiplayer section is pretty cool but I don’t really like the maps at the beginning of the level. They are incredibly confusing. My advice: Pick the guide up if you can’t find a guide online. This guide although confusing has some helpful tips.
