After thirty years of war with the Covenant, humanity finally found victory. The Master Chief, a Spartan super-soldier, and Cortana, an AI construct of unmatched technical sophistication, put an end to the Covenant, the Flood, and the threat of the Halo Array on a remote installation known as the Ark. Now, in the wake of the conflict, the Chief and Cortana drift through space aboard the remains of Forward Unto Dawn, slowly approaching a mysterious artificial world they will soon come to call Requiem.

Most limited/collector's edition strategy guides are just the standard guide slapped with a hardcover. But the people at Prima and MLG made this a huge step above the standard guide. First, its individuality numbered, it comes with neat dry erase boards for all the standard maps in the game, which I particularly have not much use for (I dont strategize that much) but its a nice touch nonetheless.
It also contains 48 pages of interviews, sketch art, and a lot of insider info from 343 Industries and MLG. It also comes with an avatar code for a T-shirt, another nice touch.
Besides all the extra goodies, the guide is VERY thorough and detailed on everything from level walkthroughs, all the way down the how you can get an individual medal in a multiplayer match. I have never read such a complete game guide before.
This guide also covers the first episode in Spartan Ops, and gives you access to download further walkthroughs for future Spartan Ops, something VERY helpful and a very nice add on.
From a visual standpoint, the cover is awesome. Its all black with a reflective foil in the photo. The side binding just reads "Halo 4" and looks awesome on the shelf.
Overall, I cant recommend this edition enough. It is a must have for Halo fans, and an excellent addition and companion the the game itself. Don't even give this edition a second thought.

I don't often buy guides for games unless they're for big, expansive adventure games like the Legend of Zelda series or Okami, to name two examples; and even when I buy guides, they're often only as a side reference to make sure I didn't miss collectibles or whatnot. Why would you want a guide for a game as straightforward and action heavy as Halo? A question I pondered heavily before making this purchase. However, I love Halo as a series so much that I decided to splurge on this limited edition guide and boy am I glad I did. This beastly tome is nearly 500 pages long. I'll let that fact sit in the air for you to digest for a minute. Yes, 500 pages of guide devoted to Halo. What could they possibly fill that many pages with regarding a single Halo entry? Turns out, everything plus the kitchen sink, but nothing here is watered down with filler to stretch it out that much. It really is a helpful guide.

First off, Halo 4 is a fantastic game, and 343 Industries really took the series to new heights in terms of story, scale, detail, and gameplay possibilities. This guide rises to the occasion in almost every way. The book starts with an introduction to the Halo series, followed by a "basics" section that tells you anything you'd want to know about the characters, weapons, enemies, etc, that will be in the game. Great start.

The campaign section of the guide is very detailed, and not just about what you'd encounter just playing through the campaign as a normal, casual gamer would.

Being a particularly avid Halo fan, I purchased this official game guide to add to my collection of Halo merchandise and collectibles. Having only ever collected the Prime strategy guides before, I wasn't sure what to expect with a collector's edition game guide.

The first thing I noticed when the package delivered is that the book is large. Because it contains an enormous quantity of information, it is easily double the size of the strategy guides I had previously purchased. The cover is sturdy, and doesn't seem to have worn at all after heavy usage over the few weeks I've had it.

The content is exactly what I had been looking for. When first playing through the game, I was intrigued with some of the new enemies, and having felt that the game didn't give the player enough information or possibilities to learn about the new race. As a result, I finished the game with a desire to learn more. Because it was relatively new, there wasn't an incredible amount of information online yet, so I chose to purchase this (with the bonus that it added to my physical collection).

Overall, I would recommend this to anyone looking for a Halo 4 souvenir or to anyone who is looking for more information about the game as an entirety itself. While most of the information in this book can most likely be found elsewhere by now, the information aggregated together into a collectible book only adds to its appeal. It is without a doubt worth its value, and will not disappoint any Halo fans who decide they'd like to try it out.

A must have for the serious Halo fan who enjoys the Halo universe. The character and equipment back story is great and the maps are a leg up

I've been a Halo fanboy since the beginning and this is by far the best game guide Prima has come out with for any game in the series. This guide is absolutely packed with extras that any Halo fan will eat up. Between the sketch art, the interviews with developers and multiplayer legends, and the breakdown of every little detail in the game... there isn't much room to dislike anything about this guide.
