5.0 out of 5 stars Specifically for Gamecube!, 15 Dec 2008
This review is from: The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess (Gamecube Version): Prima Authorized Game Guide (Paperback)
Just make sure if it is the Gamecube version of the game you want to play, you buy THIS guide and not the Wii version of the guide. If you never knew, the game is identical in both versions....except for one MAJOR difference - the Wii version of the game is a perfect mirror image of the Gamecube version. They did this so that in the Wii version, Link would be holding his sword in his right hand, corresponding to the fact you're supposed to hold the Wii controller in your right hand. You see, normally Link is a leftie. They did this so that the majority of players would be better catered for (most people are right handed). I don't know if there would have been a better way of getting around this, but they achieved it by making the two versions of the game perfect mirror images of each other.

So it all ultimately means that, for example, if the Wii guide says head East, you head West if you're playing the Gamecube version. Now you may think you can deal with that over the course of the game....but I would think it could get really confusing at times. So best cut out any confusion and buy this Gamecube specific version of the guide, if it's the Gamecube Twilight Princess you want to play. And visa versa for the Wii version. Also, the guide has subtle tactical help differences when explaining certain control manoeuvres unique to the Gamecube version (fishing is a whole different ballgame depending on which version you're playing, for example).

I give the guide full marks based on the fact that Gamecube specific online Twilight Princess guides are thin on the ground, meaning this is invaluable to Gamecube players wanting a guide - and also because, like all Prima guides, it is very comprehensive and pays attention to the details, which other guide publishers are not as good at. Trust me, this has everything you'll need to know. Even if you plan on not using a guide while playing, it is actually an informative and beautifully illustrated book to own in its own right.
