Lara Croft has been rebooted and reinvigorated with the all new Tomb Raider, taking gaming’s most famous female adventurer back to her roots and exploring how she became an iconic character. But it’s not necessarily an easy game, and if you find it too challenging, BradyGames has a very comprehensive strategy guide to help you succeed.
This extremely detailed 320 guide packs a punch for $25, with all the details you’ll need to 100% the game. The main focus is the game’s single player campaign, with over 150 pages walking you through the game’s storyline and detailing each step along the way with hundreds of screenshots. There are also details on the weapons, upgrades, and skills you’ll find in the game, bios of your allies, and strategic rundowns on all of the enemies you’ll face.
For the completionist, there are also full details on finding each and every collectible hidden in the game that you can collect during your campaign, or return to once you’ve completed it.
Finally, there are tips and strategies for multiplayer success, with a heavy focus on the various weapon loadouts to choose from, as well as detailed maps. It still all comes down to “shoot people before they shoot you”, but having the breakdowns of the maps is definitely helpful. As an added bonus, the Tomb Raider Signature Series Guide also includes a code to unlock a new multiplayer skin, which is definitely a nice bonus.
Ultimately, whether you want to buy a book like this depends on (a) your ability to play the game without help and (b) your desire to purchase a printed product as opposed to hitting Google or YouTube. But if you are opting for the Tomb Raider Signature Series Guide, you can rest assured you are getting a very comprehensive, very well put together guide that seems to cover everything you could possibly need to survive and thrive in Tomb Raider.
The GamerPops Recommendation
As a relatively straightforward action title, I’m not sure how much Tomb Raider needs a strategy guide. But it has one, and it should be an asset to anyone who feels they need help getting through this action adventure title, as long as they don’t have a problem with the $25 price tag.
