This guide really isn't all that different from the Gamecube version of the guide. It's just as good and detailed. You probably could use the Gamecube version for this game, but if you don't have that guide, it's always better to go to the one that covers the console you're playing.
Now, the guide is about the same. I could be a weenie like most of those reviewers and say, "See my review for the Gamecube version," but I'm not going to sink that low, because it's inconvenient for you, the reader. But the only additional things you should know is that all the extras are covered in tact. Most noteably is how well it covers "Separate Ways", Ada's new mission in this one. Other than that, the guide is about the same as it was for the Gamecube version.
BradyGAMES is known for presenting good Resident Evil guides, and Resident Evil 4 is no exception. One of the best RE4 resources you'll ever need. This guide is jam-packed with all the secrets and strategies you need to conquer Resident Evil 4. With the help of game developers, BradyGAMES has produced one of the best RE guides ever!
Resident Evil 4 is a complex game. It's new targeting system, and far more threatening enemies will take time to get used to. Luckily, this guide has the lowdown on all of them. They help you to understand the new system, and get used to the new motives that RE4 introduces, such as it's interactive movie sequences.
The guide gives all the low down on enemies and weapons. You'll know what works, and what doesn't. Easily, this makes this guide pretty handy.
The walkthrough is perhaps the best part of the entire guide. The maps are detailed, pointing out where all the items are. They'll even tell you where random items appear. Before each section there is also an items list so that you don't have to explore through all the maps just to see what items are in an area. They're also nice enough to tell you what enemies you're apt to run into in an area.
The strategies presented in the walkthrough are some of the best. They tell you WHEN you should grab certain weapons (and what happens if you grab it beforehand), they recommend when to buy stuff, and when to sell it, and they keep you one step ahead of the monsters. The boss strategies will ensure that you stay alive. They'll tell you how to avoid one-hit kills, and what weapons deal the best damage.
Finally, once you get to chapter five, the guide explains that the game adjust the difficulty based on your inventory. So if you're not picking up the items the guide points out, they've explained why.
The secrets, and mini-games are incredible. You'll figure out how to unlock all the hidden characters, and the importance of beginning a new game. Easily, this is the best RE guide BradyGAMES has ever put out.
Is it worth the money? I'd say so. If you need a leg up, you'll need this guide. It won't steer you wrong either. You COULD go online and get some of the same info, but I doubt GameFAQs has maps this detailed, screenshots this clear and information this concise.
Also, BradyGAMES finally gets to the point. No more useless up-to-date info. BradyGAMES doesn't just have a reputation for presenting good Resident Evil guides, they also have a reputation for digressing too much. This guide doesn't digress. It stays concise and to the point. You'll be well-prepared for every area you go into, and you won't have to wait for the guide to get to the point.
Grab it. You'll never need another RE4 resource again!
