First of all, if you have any interest in futuristic third-person shooters, go check out the reviews for Vanquish (PS3/360). Or take my word for it: Vanquish is unbelievably cool, with surprisingly complex gameplay that matches its stunning visuals and breakneck pacing. It's a throwback to old-school action games - you play for score! - but with modern HD graphics and sound. What else would you expect from the team behind Bayonetta?

Now for the guide: this is, without a doubt, the most in-depth guide I've seen in a long time. Vanquish is not a long game - the campaign is six or seven hours on Normal difficulty - and it's not tough to bull your way through on the lower difficulties. However, if you want to explore the multiple layers of the gameplay, and play Vanquish the way it was intended - including getting higher scores, conquering God Hard difficulty, and achieving great times on each Challenge - this guide is a must. The tips and strats outlined in the guide have vastly improved my own skills, and I still have (a lot) more to learn. This guide will not just teach you how to play Vanquish; it will show you how to master it.

You'll find everything you need here: detailed strategies for each enemy and boss, in-depth explanations of each weapon (including the pre-order bonus weapons), and a clearly written description of the awesome capabilities of Sam Gideon's DARPA suit. For example, the guide will tell you how long it takes for the suit to recover from overheating.....in hundredths of a second.

Also included are two walkthroughs of Vanquish's Campaign - one for Normal difficulty and one for the highly challenging God Hard - as well as step-by-step strategies for all six Tactical Challenges.

I've never bought a Future Press guide prior to this one, but I had heard a lot of good things about them. Even so, the quality and sheer amount of information provided in this guide blew me away. Especially considering the main campaign in Vanquish is only about 6-7 hours. It even has strategies for the most hardcore aspects of the game, including speed runs, high scores, and the God Hard difficulty. I especially love the in-depth break downs of weapons and enemies.

The people working at Future Press are obviously passionate about video games, as this guide feels like a true work of art. The high-quality images seem to jump off the page, and the layout is beautiful. The internet age has made printed players guides almost obsolete, yet Future Press proves that as long as you put effort into creating an amazing product, people will get value from it. I can't recommend this product enough.
