4.0 out of 5 stars Nicely done - just lacking half of the game, 28 Mar 2010
The guide contains the Johto part of the game, but not Kanto. They will publish a Volume 2 later which will have the Kanto part and Kanto Pokedex as well.
This guide looks good and is very clear so you should have no problem using this. The maps are very helpful as well. The guide has 352 pages and it contains a double-sided mini-poster which has an overworld map of the Johto region and a type chart. This guide also has a Johto Pokedex which is nice of course, a full list of items (though I noticed it was lacking some event items, a full list of moves used in battle etc. There's also some kind of list of the characters of the game which gives some information about them.

Even though this guide only covers half of the game, I don't consider this as a total rip-off: The guide does have a lot of information about HeartGold and SoulSilver and in my opinion is pretty cheap as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Snakes! Why did it have to be snakes!?", 11 Jan 2009
I got this DVD box in Chistmas and I must say, this box set is very well done. Along with Star Wars, Indiana Jones is my favorite movie saga.

Everyone knows what these films are all about.
My favorite is probably the first one, Raiders of the Lost Ark. It was just so entertaining and exciting, perfect would be the correct word to describe.
The Temple of Doom was very good as a movie too, but if I had to choose the "worst" Indy film, it would probably be the Temple of Doom (though I really enjoyed it) since I didn't like the darker theme that much.
Last Crusade was very close to the Raiders when it comes to quality, and it's my second favorite of the Indy films. And the humour was hilarious, I laughed about half the time of the movie. Connery and Ford are just perfect together.
Many have said that Crystal Skull is a weak Indy film, but I really loved the whole movie. There are also a couple of surprises in the movie and dammit, Harrison Ford's performance was just as good as in the original Indy films! You just have to give some credit to a man who still does, in his sixtys, something like this.

The quality of the films is great. I don't have anything bad to say about the picture and sound quality. The box art is very nice too.

The special features are very interesting, but it's kind of strange they didn't include the Bonus Features disc from the 2003 Indy box for this one. There are about 30 minutes of bonus features and some photo galleries for each of the original Indy films.
It was a very big plus they put a two-disc edition of Crystal Skull in this box set, as the bonus disc for Crystal Skull has several hours of bonus features.

If you already have the 2003 box set, you should just buy the two-disc edition of Crystal Skull, but if you don't have these movies already on DVD, go ahead! These movies are a piece of film history. Steven Spielberg did a great job directing these, and let's not forget George Lucas, who is the creator of Indy, and the executive producer of these films.

5.0 out of 5 stars An awesome Star Wars Trilogy box, 9 Mar 2008
This is a fantastic DVD box. Actually in my opinion this is the most stylish and the best Star Wars Trilogy box available. The metal tin box looks really cool and it's perfect if you, for example, want to put this DVD box on display on a shelf.

And then to DVD's themselves. So the movies are the updated versions from 2004. Personally I like most of the changes they made, for example the new improved Jabba in A New Hope and Ian McDiarmid as the emperor in The Empire Strikes Back. The change I don't understand is the scene "Hayden as the spirit of Anakin" in the end of Return of the Jedi. Another update I don't like that much is the scene "Greedo shoots first" This doesn't bother me that much but I think Han seemed more badass in the original version where Greedo actually never got a chance to shot.

The sound and picture qualities are great and I'm very happy that they improved some of the effects such as lightsabers, blasters and explosions. The Bonus Disc has entertaining bonus features such as the two hour-plus document "Empire of Dreams", TV Spots, trailers, still galleries etc. which are surely interesting especially for the fans.

If you like Star Wars and you don't have the original trilogy on DVD then this is an absolute must-have collection.
