Instead, buy this for the "art book." It is heavy on concept art and (to my delight!) packed with commentary from the creative minds behind the game, providing a lot of insight into how Assassin's Creed evolved. The art book is hardcover, making it a nice keepsake if you're a collector.
The lithograph is glossy and about postcard sized. The art in the book is much better. Enough said. As far as I can tell, the Hidden Blade is NOT on the wrong hand, he is facing the viewer so the orientation is reversed. (Think looking in a mirror)
The game guide spends an entire chapter on combat schematics/ interpreting guard and civilian reactions alone. A paragraph or so biography of all of the main characters is included as well as Maps containing the locations of flags and view points and screenshots showing Templars and ways to deal them. A step-by-step guide to each of the cities and their districts is followed by a walkthrough of the memory blocks, with tips, cautions and alerts to plot details easily missed throughout. X-box 360 Achievements are listed in the back. They also give you a very rippable map of the Holy Land attached to the guide, which I would highly recommend taking out with scissors.
Overall, a 5/5 for extra content, great details and value.
In other hand, I've already finished the game so I haven't read the guide very carefully but I have seen it and looks great
