Official Titanfall 2 Collector’s Edition Guide Review: Is it worth the buy?

 

Prima Games’ Official Titanfall 2 Collector’s Edition Guide gives players walkthroughs, tips, and tricks for dominating Titanfall 2’s campaign and multiplayer. The Collector’s Edition of the guide includes:

  • The Official Titanfall 2 Guide
  • A Titanfall 2 14-Month Calender
  • A code to unlock an eGuide with interactive maps

Campaign/Single-Player Walkthroughs

This Titanfall 2 game guide contains walkthroughs for the single-player missions. 9 missions in total, this guide does as you would expect; it walks you through each step you take in Jack Cooper and BT-7274’s journey. While the guide does deliver on its promise of giving the player tips and tricks to successfully get past each part of the campaign, I did find it to be a little bit unnecessary at times. And perhaps that is not the guide’s fault.

People look to guides to get past certain parts of games, not to use for the whole game. Most of the time, it is to find out how to solve a puzzle or how to get past a really hard boss fight. Well, Titanfall 2 does not really have either of those two factors. While it does contain boss fights, I found them to be a little too easily beatable, at least playing on the Hard difficulty. The boss fights in Titanfall 2 definitely did not require the assistance of a guide, as other games’ boss fights might.

A plus about having this guide is that it shows you where the collectible pilot helmets are located throughout the campaign. However, they were still a little bit hard to find as the pictures were very small and the descriptions weren’t too specific. So if you are after the “Every Nook and Cranny” achievement, this guide is helpful, but it could be a little more helpful if you ask me.

Multiplayer Guides

In this guide, there are several map layouts with suggested pilot and titan loadouts, along with spawn areas and game modes. Basically, it tells you about each individual map, mode, weapon, Titan, etc. This is great information to have, but once again, I find that it’s not really needed. It helps if you are trying to squad up and actually strategically plan out attack scenarios with your team, but nothing prepares you for the actual battle.

I’m the type of person that believes in learning through experience, especially with first-person multiplayer shooters. You try new weapons and loadouts all the time and get a feel for what you like/don’t like. Of course you can look up suggestions and see which loadouts may be worth trying, which in that case, this guide does help. Just don’t expect immediate results from the suggested weapons. It’s all based on what you get comfortable using. Some of these loadouts are really worth trying out, but may require user tweaks.

Verdict?

The Collector’s Edition of the official Titanfall 2 guide is $39.99. With the only added bonuses from the Standard Edition being a calendar and getting the eGuide for free, I’ll have to say that the Collector’s Edition just isn’t worth it. The Standard Edition is $24.99 and comes with the same guide, so you still get all the walkthroughs and tools that a guide can have. On top of that, you can score the eGuide version for only $9.99, which includes interactive maps. So if you would like a guide to help you out, I would just recommend the eGuide. I feel like a Collector’s Edition should offer more to the fans than just a calendar.
