After finishing Resident Evil I knew there had to be any easy way around the mansion, or a least a proper order for the collection of items, so when I saw this was guide available I decided to buy it.

The book is a full-colour guide and walk through which features both general images of the characters and screen captures from the game.

The book provides a guide on how to move your characters (walk, run, dodge, duck, etc); medical supplies (herbs, sprays, kits, serums, etc); weapons guide; main characters and enemies descriptions. There are also full colour maps showing location of the various collectable items.

Game play is covered by a comprehensive walk-through, giving side-by-side walk-through of the game for both Chris Redfield (yellow/green) and Jill Valentine (red). Areas where both characters would have crossed are not bordered.

There are a couple things I don't like about the walk-through type guides:

Firstly, they do not allow freedom of movement, they take away the players ability to think for themselves by literally telling you every step to make.

Secondly, in order to follow the walk-through you have to keep pausing the game in order to read the next set of instructions. They take away the continuous playing that I have become used to with games like this, and for me that removed a lot of the fun of the game.

What I did do was take a quick scan through the book's walk-through and pull out the items in the order that the book recommends they are collected, along with the place where they are to be used.

One of the benefits of the book for me came in the creation of the V-Jolt substance to kill Plant 42.

This book is a complete walkthrough for the Gamecube's top-notch title Resident Evil, and it is a spectacular success.
The reworked version of the classic survival horror game is nearly a masterpiece; it's a good example of what the 'cube can manage and it even puts a lot of current PC titles to shame. But it's also a big game, with a lot of items and a lot of ground to cover (certainly after the amount of backtracking you will need to be doing). So if you get stuck, you have three real choices: 1)Ask someone who's finished it, 2) Check it up on the 'net, or 3) Just pay out the cash and get this excellent guide, like I did. And you will not be disappointed, as it is as near complete as any guide will ever get.
The book itself contains just about everything you need. That includes a description of all the weapons and their appropriate uses (that means, which enemies they are best suited for killing), the same for the items (including locations and uses where items are specifically named). There are a few handy gameplay tips that might help you stay alive a bit longer, or generally take a bit less damage. And then there is the walkthrough itself.
Now, a game like Resi can be tackled in several different ways, depending upon the sequence in which you do things, and which character you are playing as. And the guide follows the same general course, making notes about events and problems that will happen to you depending upon whether you are controlling Chris redfield or Jill Valentine. And depending on what you did earlier. And the guide covers it all. I have to say, I'm impressed. There's even a sealed section containing some of the game's secrets (fun).

this book is really helpful. with the game being really hard this book can help you every step of the way. it gives you tips on how to defeat bosses and stuff. and has a guide at the back of the book on how to survive the extra games at the end of the real game. must buy if you are really stuck on the game.

This is one of my first prima guides and is my first resident evil guide. I must say that I was impressed as the guide is layed out and explains with good detail. It does neglect Chris story a little but is still worth getting. I bought this guide off e-bay for collection purpose and was very happy when I got.
MUST BUY!!!
