Just got the Official Prima Strategy Guide for SCC and am very impressed with it. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

I have NOT read any of the single player OR COOP mission walkthroughs but have read the other sections and they are very well put together and a fun read. It's a great book for any SC fan just for the images and back story it provides.

258 pages all color

Section - Number of pages in that section

<UL TYPE=SQUARE>How to use this guide - 4 pages

The Fisher Files - 3 pages of back story outlining the previous Splinter Cell titles.

Training - 14 pages

PEC Challenges - 10 pages explaining the requirements for the different unlocks in the PEC (Persistent Elite Creation system)

SP walkthrough - 104 pages

CO-OP walkthrough - 38 pages

Deniable OPS - 75 pages

Achievements - 6 pages

The Art of Conviction - 8 pages[/list]

Feel free to ask about the sections OTHER THAN the SP and COOP as I am trying not to spoil that part of the game. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Eonomega,
Welcome to the forums! I updated the original post to include some info about those two sections of the book. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Versus-Mroj,
I thought Amazon.co.uk would have it for sure but no go. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

I don't do a lot of shopping in Europe so I can't help you on this one Versus-Mroj. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

If these walkthrough of SP and COOP can provide 0 kills and 0 knockouts, I would consider to buy it.

Does it tell you in the official prima strategy guide how many uplay points you need to unlock the Infiltration mode?.

As Doxos77 said it's here on the Uplay site:
http://uplay.us.ubi.com/win/ac...ards/splinter-cell-5 (http://uplay.us.ubi.com/win/actions-rewards/splinter-cell-5)

The Uplay Actions and Rewards are different then the SC:C PEC challenges. The Uplay actions unlock Uplay rewards like the SCAR-H, Voron's SV7 Rapid Response Assault Suitand Infiltration mode. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

The points gained in PEC challenges can be used in-game in the PEC system to improve weapons, uniform's and gain access to additional uniforms.


All the Uplay Actions and Rewards are at the above link.

Thanks for the heads up, i didn't notice, i only briefly checked out Uplay forum, I also didn't realise you sign in with existing Ubisoft forum account, great stuff.

Yeah makes me wish I had Assassin's Creed 2 or some other way to start banking points for Splinter Cell goodies since the points carry over between games. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

Yeah that's cool. I did notice Uplay is still in beta, so i presume they are still chasing bugs out. I have also noticed in the uplay forum that some gamers are having issues with in-game content showing up in splinter cell conviction. They have completed the actions but their rewards or content is not available to use/play. So i might have to save some more money to get the exclusive collectore edition that has the infiltration mode unlocked and some other goodies available straight out of the box.

beta should be no excuse, hate to sound like a rager, but if i get broken software again, whilst putting faith in my entertainment's dev's again, it will really suck.
