I want to start out by saying all statagy guides are great for square enix games. The book tells great deatials on how to get throught the game with the least amount of spoilers. I love this because most of the games that I play are ruined by the book. I highly recommended this as a helper to the game. Please don't use it unless you are stuck or there is no point in playing. I also must stress the greatness of all the square enix games. They implore the most wonderful graphics and game play in my personal opinion in the world. Final Fantasy and Star ocean are both amazing game series. BUt any way back to the point, though i can not stress enough how good this guide is and that we should most likely only use this amazing tool only in situtations where there is no other choice and or chance.

I purchased this guide along with my copy of the game. Before I even opened it I knew I could expect a great, detailed guide since it is from Piggyback...and I was right. The guide is laid out in an excellent manner. Each set of 2 pages features a highly detailed map with treasures and other highlights on the left page and notable bits of info, enemy and boss strategies and other tips on the right page. This layout makes going through the game while not missing a thing a breeze. There is no need to flip back and forth between a map and what you're trying to read like in many other guides. There are even maps of all of the optional areas, something that is commonly left out of other guides. The guide also includes full details on the game's huge sidequest, weapons, items, classes, skills and enemies. Pretty much every single thing you could possibly want to know about the game is included in an easy to locate section of the guide. Many guides often miss things or have outright incorrect information in them. However Piggyback shows here that they are above that and that they know how to construct an awesome guide. If I had anything negative to say about this guide it is about its durability. This is a paperback copy of the guide so it will not stay open without either weighing the pages down or pressing the pages apart lightly to slightly crease the spine. Something that is not uncommon with paperback books or strategy guides. However this causes the pages toward the center of the book to pull apart from the spine after a few days of use. As of this writing roughly 25% of my copy's pages are completely separated from the book itself. If you plan on using the guide regularly paying the extra money for the special edition might be preferable as it should last longer. But if that's not the case or you're not concerned with it staying in one piece for a long time this guide is great.

I got this guide when i got the game just so i find all the items in the game. so far the guide is pretty good and tells you tips on how to progress better. But I do have to say I do miss the Brady Games guides that the Final Fantasy series used in the past. This guide has great maps that are very detailed and show all save points, items, and waypoints. There are also numbers on the maps that have the details on what is going on in that particular area so you can keep up on where you are on the map and what to expect. This guide does have some tips for boss fights but does not spoil the fight for you. It still makes you have to think on how to beat them but still gives you enough to make it a little easier. I would recommend this guide for everyone who wants to get the most out of Final Fantasy XIII.
