fair guide, fantastic "art book" 12 Dec. 2007
By Brian Parker - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The strategy guide itself is a little confusingly arranged; the maps can be helpful for some of the collection missions, but it doesn't offer much else that can't be gotten for free online. I don't fault the writer so much; the game is straightforward enough that there isn't much for a guide to offer.

Instead, buy this for the "art book." It is heavy on concept art and (to my delight!) packed with commentary from the creative minds behind the game, providing a lot of insight into how Assassin's Creed evolved. The art book is hardcover, making it a nice keepsake if you're a collector.

The Extras Are Worth It! 30 Jan. 2008
By Jenn - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I bought this at Gamestop for $35.00 and it was still worth it. Fans of the game, especially those into art/concept art would surely enjoy it as much as I did. The art book is about 150 pages and filled with wonderfully detailed paintings and computer renderings of Altaïr, the Assassins, Templars and cityfolk as well as the cities of Masyaf, Acre, Jerusalem and Damascus. Commentary of those who worked on the project is in the artbook too, giving light to things not often noticed and explaining the details behind the designs.

The lithograph is glossy and about postcard sized. The art in the book is much better. Enough said. As far as I can tell, the Hidden Blade is NOT on the wrong hand, he is facing the viewer so the orientation is reversed. (Think looking in a mirror)

The game guide spends an entire chapter on combat schematics/ interpreting guard and civilian reactions alone. A paragraph or so biography of all of the main characters is included as well as Maps containing the locations of flags and view points and screenshots showing Templars and ways to deal them. A step-by-step guide to each of the cities and their districts is followed by a walkthrough of the memory blocks, with tips, cautions and alerts to plot details easily missed throughout. X-box 360 Achievements are listed in the back. They also give you a very rippable map of the Holy Land attached to the guide, which I would highly recommend taking out with scissors.

Overall, a 5/5 for extra content, great details and value.

nice bundle with a few flaws 10 Dec. 2007
By Curtis R. Janssen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Ok this is a great bundle the strategy guide is very well done and the art book is amazing. However I want to point out a few flaws for those looking to buy this. First in the strategy guide some of the numbers/information don't match up on the crusader hunt the ones I noticed that seemed inaccurate were in the kingdom. Secondly they did it again! The special Lithograph has Altair attacking with the hidden blade in his right hand.... How can they make such a big error when doing art for this game *sigh*
Great Pack 12 Jan. 2008

It's awesome. The art book have a lot of pictures and they are very good.
In other hand, I've already finished the game so I haven't read the guide very carefully but I have seen it and looks great
Very nice for the extra stuff. 18 Jan. 2008
By R. Snow - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
To put it short. This limited edition bundle/guide was worth it. Since I am a fan of video game art, and since this product included a detailed strategy guide with it, it was a steal for me.
