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. The guide outlines the location for each hidden Pangloss statue, and describes exactly what you need to do for each trophy/achievement. It even has codes for accessing strategy videos on FuturePress' website. There is also an interview with director Shinji Mikami and early concept drawings; perfect for those who want to learn a bit about the game's history.
This my first experience with a FuturePress guide, and they've hit a 500-foot home run here. It's a well-made, surprisingly hefty volume that's overflowing with carefully designed, easily read page layouts and clear, well-written text - not to mention the gorgeous artwork spread from cover to cover.
I didn't expect this depth and breadth of content from a guide for a niche action game such as Vanquish; this kind of treatment is usually reserved for major RPG releases. In the age of the internet, you might think that the days of the traditional strategy guide are coming to an end, but this book was created by people who loved Vanquish, and wanted to share their knowledge with the reader. Bravo, FuturePress!
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.
