Walking into one of the 3 Gamestop stores at my local mall yesterday to pick up Catslevania: Order of Ecclesia, I came upon something I had never seen or even heard of before.I was intrigued enough to take a look at it and with a $25 dollar price tag, I snagged it and bought it.
What I found yesterday was the Last Stand Edition Gears of War 2 Official Strategy guide. Yes a strategy guide for Gears of War 2, I was a little confused too. Why would you need a strategy guide fr Gears of War 2? I certainly have no idea. But my love for this game and the fact that the guide looks damn awesome made me pick it up.
The guide is a hardcover , 319 page guide to all that is GoW 2. The guide is very in depth with everything from area maps, walkthroughs, collectible locations, weapon specs, to multiplayer maps and tips for each map and each mode including Horde. It includes strategies for the throwback maps as well.
But what sets this guide apart from a regular softcover one?
Well besides the fact that its hardcover, the last 16 pages are dedicated to a sneak preview of the Gears of War comic book series, and an CG art gallery.
It comes with a numbered lithograph of concept art for Skorge, signed by the artist.
And a fold out double sided poster that has all the collectible locations in the back and a image of a battle in the Hollow on the front.
