A few months back a friend of mine was downsizing his possessions. He moved house and realised that he had way too much stuff and decided that some of it needed to go. I had some of the things he was getting rid of and one of them was an official strategy guide of Resident Evil 5. Resident Evil 5 is an old game (it’s 10 years old) and I can’t remember it having a strategy guide, however, it isn’t all that surprising as many games then had one.
The Resident Evil 5 official strategy guide has all the usual stuff; like a walkthrough of each mission and chapter, information about each weapon and how to unlock them, information on weapons and the locations of collectables. That isn’t all that the Resident Evil 5 strategy guide has to offer, it has some awesome artwork, interesting information that I personally didn’t know about the game and quotes from the developers.
I’ve waffled on long enough, you’re here to see what the RE5 guide looks like, so here you go. (Click on the images for a larger version.)

What do you think of the Resident Evil 5 official strategy guide? I think all of the behind the scenes stuff is incredibly interesting and I learned quite a few things about the game that I never knew before.
