    Realistically, you cannot follow a video guide or individual item type list for your "collectibles" run through this game. There's just too many things to watch for. You'll need to follow a sequential guide, and it will most likely ruin the experience, but it sucks to miss one of these bad boys and not know which chapter it's in. The ones you miss WILL show on another run-through, though.

    Tyger7 has a great walkthrough available in a zipped doc here:
    I recommend using Dropbox or email to send this doc to your iPad/mobile device, so you can play in the dark!

    There are 91 pages in normal/hard mode. Do yourself a favor and follow a guide.

    Govo12The list is the best method I have found, but all collectables show up again. I re-started a check point and ended up collecting them all again, even though they didn't count (as they were already included in my states page).

    Webby648If you fail to collect all manuscript pages during 'normal' game mode, do you then need to re-play 'normal' game mode in order to get this achievement?
    Can you get this achievement by collecting all manuscripts during the 'nightmare' mode play through if you miss some the first time around?

    Yes. ("The ones you miss WILL show on another run-through, though.")

    LukaztroThank you! The written out names of each manuscript page was a big time saver. I only needed a few more after my first play through. It was perfect for cross-referencing and using a location list to figure out which one I was missing and where it was. Cheers!
