Format: Hardcover
Length: 1:42 Mins
First of all, the difference between the regular and collector's edition guide is the hardcover, additional concept art and a quick reference card. The Collector's Edition Guide has 416 pages instead of what's listed elsewhere (including on Future Press website).

The walkthrough is detailed but not necessary because the game is not only linear, it's guided linear (press Up on the D-pad to get directions). It is useful if you want to get trophies that don't come automatically with campaign progression.

The bulk of the book in on the multiplayer component, and that's where this book is brilliant. It covers in excruciating detail all the things FPS-crazy players will want to know - yeah, the numbers, ranking, experience, stats. Each player class comes with an in-depth analysis on their abilities, weapons and usefulness in different game modes. If you're new to Killzone, this is a quick introduction on the classes.

The 8 multiplayer maps are also well covered. There have both schematic and satellite views. On them are locations of the spawn area, ammo boxes, turrets and weapons. Each map is loaded with strategies specific to all the game modes, the favourable player classes and certain areas are zoomed in for future analysis.

At the back is the gallery which features beautiful concept art of the game. There are various interviews with the staff who talks more on the background of Killzone, the story and the production side.

On the last page is a code you can use register the guide on Future Press website to redeem 3 Unlock Points for unlocking abilities and weapons. Not much, but I like little extras like this.

This is a very comprehensive and useful guide. Multiplayer fans will benefit more.

For starters, I don't know the difference between the Collector's Edition and the Standard Edition (although one reviewer did say that the CE has more concept art) but this book is just plain awesome. For hardcore singleplayer gamers, this review might seem a bit redundant since the campaign is mostly linear. But if you're looking for tips to find that hard-to-achieve trophy then this guide is more than useful. Furthermore, additional information on the backstory of the characters in the KZ universe as well as the overall story in the game itself is covered in the book. It also gives us tips and tricks on how to outsmart the enemy AI (from regular trooper to the Heavy Trooper).

However, the real beauty of this guide is the multiplayer aspect. It covers in minute detail the maps, weapons, camping points, ambush sights, areas of strategic value, and ammo stacks in the KZ3 maps (note: not included in this guide are the DLC maps).

Finally, as a bit of a bonus, an interview with the game devs is included with the book (hint: what happened to Natko in Killzone 3?) coupled with beautiful KZ3 art - this book is worth your time and money.

(I bought mine from the Amazon UK store - it was cheaper there).

Well made book with hardcover and high quality paper. The guide itself is easy to understand and appears to be very through (time will tell) and has great screenshots, illistrations & pictures.

Everything in the guide book was very detail and it has some concept art in it as well, which is a plus for me!
