Star Wars Battlefront Prima Strategy Guide
 
Has any one heard anything on this? Its supposed to have come out today (September 14), but I haven't heard any official reports. Here are some links to tell you what I'm talking about.

I might go down to my local GameStop to find out whats going on, other then that, has anyone heard anything about this?

nope I havent heard anything

Mine shipped from EB games today so it's out there. I don't know if it's in stores yet though.

PistolPete 09-14-2004 05:09 PM

Guides do usually come out before game do. I remember one time the CS:condition zero guide was out about a month before the actual game was.

twruhl 09-14-2004 06:04 PM

probbaly 20 bucks

thejeditraitor 09-14-2004 09:39 PM

are you gonna read the guide before playing the game?
wouldn't that ruin it?

Dragnarr 09-15-2004 02:01 AM

Ermm no, Read it and pick out any detail from it and then post the essential parts like vehicle list on the forums :cool:

No in my local game store there is no advertisement on Battlefront but the last time I walked past a swear I saw it. The battlefront cover on a big magazine.

Why ? For a SP game with lots of surprises etc it could ruin it, like spoilers for a movie; but i dont think it mlatters much in this case does it? Its full with map plans and some basic strategies
"There is a hole in this wall, go in it and camp". (from some other prima guide)
Its not really a necessity at all. the maps may come in handy for clans for drawing tacs.
If someone has this guide and a scanner let me know :p

Dragnarr 09-15-2004 03:09 AM

lol yeah, free strategy guides for the forum dwellers :D

Evil Dark Jedi 09-15-2004 03:17 AM

When I go there again ill see if I can find it again. The next time I go there will either be the 21st or 18th. So if its there I will beg that my dad buy it j/k. I will actually ask him and if he says no I will save up my money to get it though my dad doesnt like it when I get those guides cause he says its cheating in the game its for.

I can see wanting a map but a guide for this come on whats it going to say, "remember to shoot the imperials". Come on!

MoonSlasher 09-15-2004 06:22 PM

the only use for a strategic guide for a shooter would have to be on different ways how to win sertain maps, the advantages and disadvantages, so yes, it would be handy for those who have one. ;)

Don't spoil the fun! Finding the best strategy is just as enjoyable as fragging a n00b!

I took a look at the strategy guide at my local EB Games.

Vehicle Confirmations: We already know about all the vehicles that will be in the game, either from the official site or from the x-box vehicle preview. Sorry, no surprises gusy.

Planet Confirmations: Bobby's Helmet has previously posted the complete 16 levels included in the game. Thats all of 'em. The big surprise to me is that Kyshyyyk (I know i am spelling this wrong) is mostly a tropical planet map. Lots of water & huts, quite contrary to the books.

Besides that, I didn't see anything all that important... just thought I'd confirm what we already knew.

i make my own tactics, i dont need guides for that :rolleyes:

Very well put :D

reelguy227 09-16-2004 04:50 AM

I think it would spoil it also .

MoonSlasher 09-16-2004 04:53 AM

how would it be spoiled if you collaberate those strategy's with your own?;)

Prime 09-16-2004 07:05 AM

I thought many Prima guides tend to suck. Also, if there ends up being patches to alter gameplay, then they can become immediately obsolete...

Alegis 09-16-2004 07:48 AM

I just want good maps, that's all. I wouldn't even think a second they would come up with better strats than i could :p

Neon 09-16-2004 08:03 AM

I will find out good strategys when I have the game, but I won't play with bastard strategys

MoonSlasher 09-16-2004 02:05 PM

do what you wish, but those who tend to be 'battlefront masters' will most likely have the strategy guide.

Sam Fisher 09-22-2004 11:12 AM

I bought the Prima guide for Jedi Academy, and it had all the bonus maps and everything included...

Wardog1368 09-23-2004 05:06 PM

When I went to get the game Tuesday they said if I bought the game and stratgey gude I'd get $15 store credit so I did and well it's kinda cool.
