The guide begins with a forward from Kevin Levine. He tells about how much he particularly loves strategy guides. Particularly for things such as developer commentary and sometimes having some really in depth knowledge of the game. Bradygames is no Future Press, Piggyback Interactive or early Versus Books. And from time to time I've been unusually frustrated with their guides, but I was not disappointed with this one. Kevin Levine has a nice forward that welcomes you to Bioshock Infinite and the Strategy Guide. A forward that reminds us that sometimes having a strategy guide isn't always about getting random "tips." It's okay to enjoy a strategy guide for the artwork, screenshots, diagrams and developer interviews, if they're included.
The guide quickly jumps into all the basics of the game. From the basic controls and movements to talking about all the gear and vigors. All these things are explained in great detail in the game itself, but there's nothing wrong with having a reference tool right beside you as well. Likewise, it provides some pretty good strategies on how to use vigors or how to develope and utilize your gear. All this stuff at the beginning is great.Read more ›
Finally, this thing is GORGEOUS - incredibly high production values. Heavy glossy paper, good printing, fabulous illustrations. The layout makes it easy to use. You'll learn some stuff about the world of Columbia you would not learn otherwise. I was going to just browse when it came in, and ended up reading for a couple of hours.
What can I say, your path is clear: get your hands on this one.
The guide is missing 4 voxophone locations and I think 3 kinetescope locations.
As I went through the guide, I put "x"'s by the voxophones/kinestescopes/telescopes (V/K/T) to make sure I got them all. According to the strategy guide, I did. No achievements. Found a walkthrough online and realized the guide was missing a bunch the V/K/T's. Finally got the achievement.
Cool pictures. Terrible if you want 100% completion/achievements
The books is very colorful and the pages are thick and glossy. I do wish there was an index of sorts and the maps aren't always done as well as they could be. For example, the maps show the locations of some items without finding a way of noting that you can't actually access the location until you've gone to other locales first. The strategy for the final deck battle -- where I *could* have used a hint the first time through -- is useless.
If you are the type to play a game once and move on, you probably have little interest in the book. If you like doing a lot of exploring and collecting, I think it's worth the money. I am 85% happy with the book.
Overall a worthwhile purchase.
The pictures are beautiful, and every segment of the game is addressed, but reviewers seem to agree that not all objects are listed, nor is information given about chronology. There is good information here about weaponry and damage, etc. but this isn't meaty enough for a hardcore player.

Overall a great guide. Very detailed in the walkthroughs and maps. Was also good about not giving spoilers to first time players (usually Brady and piggyback are good with that).Published 20 months ago by Nathan Menard
Very pleased with Amazon but disappointed by the guide. Don't waste the money, just go online and find what you need to know.Published 22 months ago by Keith
