After buying (and reviewing) the collector's edition of the Final Fantasy XII Piggyback guide book, I decided I'd invest in in the collector's edition guide for Final Fantasy XIII. This is an example of another stellar guide brought to you by Piggyback. Similar to the guide for XII reflecting the ancient times of XII, this guide reflects the modern characteristics of the world of cocoon in XIII, with an elegant, simple design cover that any FF fan from the PAL region should be familiar with. It's nice to see Piggyback pay tribute to traditions even though Square-Enix has strayed far far away from traditions in this game.

The actual content is of course as you'd expect from Piggyback. It's got everything you could ever possibly want to know, which is very helpful considering the lack of explanation in the game about certain areas, especially weapon/accessory upgrades. This guide easily breaks it down for you, telling you when they recommend you start upgrading, where to find the exact pieces, and the benefits of upgrading which weapon, seeing as you can get the "ultimate" weapons from all the weapons found in the game.

What I like most about this guide is the story recall. With the nature of the game trying to resemble first-person-shooters in terms of delving you right in the line of fire going from battle to battle, without much time to digest exactly what is happening. In the game, you playback memories of the past 13 days, but not in order, which can make things confusing. Piggyback nicely gives you the synopsis from each day as well as slightly analysing the events, making things easier to digest and fully understand the story.

As usual, there is artwork galore in the guide, making it an elegant addition to any FF fan.

I was given this as a gift by my ever-so-thoughtful girlfriend and I really love it. All sopiness aside, it's got great illustrations, is well put together and is invaluable if you want to save your tv screen from rage propelled controllers after losing the same battle for the eighth time.
It looks great on my bookshelf and gets jealous glances from my fan-boy friends.
The ONLY downside is that it does contain some pretty huge spoilers (obviously) and so care must be taken not to read ahead of play unless you're really stuck.
I can't wait to finish the game so I can read it with complete impunity.

This collector's edition official guide for Final Fantasy XIII has all the useful information on crystogenesis, upgrading weapons (very, very detailed guide to which components are best used to sell or used to upgrade your weapons and accessoires), bestiary...
But sometimes the maps in the walkthrough are a little confusing.$
Very clear lay-out.
Every page looks great: official artwork and screenshots.

Even as a veteran of the FF series I found myself with this book almost constantly open, especially post-game when it comes into it's own as a Hunt or Upgrade reference. Content does seem a little thin, it's more of a database than a good read, but I think that's more down to the games own limitations.

The ultimate Final Fantasy XIII guide for those who not only want 100% completion of the game but want to go deeper into other aspects of the Final Fantasy XIII universe. The guide is incredibly user friendly and every area is separated to make any search easy and accurate. Since it contains heavy spoilers (something that the guide will inform of at some points), I'd recommend to use the guide for the last part of the game to maximize the game experience. In addition, the outstanding presentation of this limited guide will surely have a place in your cupboard.

This guide is just great. I usually get the guides with FF games so that I don't miss anything, including secret endings to the story etc. This one is just as good as can be: very well presented, good pictures and a very good walkthrough split in small numbered paragraphs easy to relate to the accompanying maps. I particularly appreciated the fact that they've tried to avoid the story spoilers as much as possible to let the player enjoy them in the game. All in all, a very good product and the perfect companion if you want to do and see everything in FF XIII.

If I was to compare the standard guide book to the collector's edition I would definitely say the CE version. The extra section for the 13 days on Bodhum really helps because when I played the game I didn't have a clue. There're all jumbled up so an ordered sequence laid out for you is great. The extra artwork is also amazing. I did expect to see a few more pages of extras considering you're paying more for it but that's a small problem. The overall look of the book is beautiful and it has everything you need to combat the game. The other helpful thing is it has the levels of spoiler at the start so you won't end up ruining the storyline for yourself. I'm yet to finish the game and I haven't consulted the guide book hardly at all.

This book truly is amazing and I would definitely recommend getting it if you're willing to spend more money for it. I bought the standard edition as well just so I didn't spoil the CE copy. The other upside is also the extra plot details which I love reading about anyway.
