With that being said I am partway through chapter 8 (of 15) and have just found the fifth item that was not listed in the guide. The guide has basic maps of every level that have little icons denoting important items you want to find, and a text walkthrough that has callouts for things you should be looking for. The most important items are power nodes which you use to upgrade your weapons, rig, and stasis. You absolutely need to find every one you can unless you are playing the game on normal or easy. I have found three power nodes that were not listed in either the map or the walkthrough, one that was listed on the map but not mentioned in the walkthrough, (very hard to find because it was in the very first zero-grav area with other stuff floating around it) and just now found a ruby semiconductor (worth 10,000 credits) which again was not mentioned in the map or walkthrough which prompted me to write this review to warn others.
My other gripe with the guide is that while it lists the available suits/weapons for purchase, it does not say what they cost, making it difficult to know whether to spend your hard earned credits on a power node or save them for a suit upgrade/weapon. I had been saving my credits for the Vintage Suit since it would give me a 10% discount at the store, but once I found it cost 40,000 credits I decided to put the credits towards power nodes instead.Read more ›
I rock the strategy guides because I don't want to miss out on any of the side or hidden items. I'm not a HUGE Achievement hound, but i don't want to miss anything that'll give me an edge in-game or otherwise. Plus, the artwork, detailed maps, and extra little tid-bits of info enhance the whole game experience GREATLY!
This is a TRUE collectible! With no Ultra Limited Edition as with Dead Space, this rounds out the Dead Space 2 collection on top of all the bonus items you could score through EA.com.
Like a good novel, I can only take but so much or the Dead Space universe, and this guide is just the companion piece to make the journey that much better.
Regardless of the previous complaints, it's still a fairly comprehensive guide and if you're interested in grabbing every item along the way this one might work out for you. As said before, there's still some nice bonus content and artwork to be had here and also included are a few useful flow-charts for the branching paths in Dead Space: Extraction, which is included with the Limited Edition of Dead Space 2.
For the die-hard collector only.
UPDATE: Dead Space Extraction guide contains a couple counts of misinformation.
