Nice idea, but a tad awkward,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Final Fantasy XIII-2 - The Complete Official Guide: Collectors Edition (Hardcover)
Being a fan of the final fantasy series and the quality strategy guides they produce, I purchased this guide for £8, which is a decent price, even for a standard edition.
The collectors edition has a nice feel to it and the two different ribbons are useful, though sometimes (especially in long side quests) I still had to use a bookmark. It does tend to get dents in it, especially if it is being used.
The walkthrough part of the guide is split into two main sections "walkthrough" and "tour guide". Essentially walkthrough gives you the main story objectives and how to complete them, whilst tour guide lists all the side quests monster overview and place or monster of interest. This is a nice idea as it prevents spoilers and encourages exploring, though the one criticism I have is that I wished the maps were in the walkthrough section and not the tour guide.
The rest of the guide is dedicated to explaining game mechanics, lists of monsters, items, check-lists weapons and achievements.
It's a nice guide and a pleasure to flick through absentmindedly.
