***UPDATED***
Code at the rear of the book does not work, apparently my code has already been redeemed despite my book coming factory sealed. is it possible to give this product zero stars?
***END UPDATE***

If I could only use two words to describe this product, I could use either "Completely Disappointed", "No Don't", or "Clearly Rushed"

I used to work in a Computer Game store so on my break I would sometimes read the newer Strategy Guides to help me explain the workings of the newer product to the customer so I feel I have read quite a few of these products over the years, and I have to say that this is a complete and utter waste of money.

My belief is that a guide for a game similar to this, I would be expecting that all of the collectibles items would be highlighted on a map of each level. This guide however, just has a one line hint of their location located throughout the chapter, these are named as "Bungie's Dead Ghost Hints".

an example of this is from the Moon chapter of the book,
1. Archer's Line
HINT: Acceleration

Yes. Thanks for that BradyGames, that really narrows that down in the Six levels of that chapter of the story......

Another example of the rushed feel of the guide is when you complete the tutorial level and are first directed to the Tower, you have to choose one of four weapons to be used as a starter weapon, but the guide makes no reference to this at all and does not even recommend a weapon to select.

I have not been able to find a list of any of the abilities of each of the three types of guardians anywhere in this book and the book merely suggests that you play each character for a bit before deciding which one to actually choose.....

Super shiney and very helpful. Could do with an index but that is just me.

My copy came sealed so I was able to use the code to download the digital version with no problems, as some others have had. The digital version is updated with information about the expansion that has already been released and therefore will be with the new one.

Great value for money and the price I paid was much cheaper than other video game retailers.

Sorry about the title of this review, I couldn't help myself.

The "illustrated maps" supposedly here to "guide you through the ancient ruins of our solar system" are only useful to help teaching you where each open area on a planet is and what path to follow to get there, but you have to go though the trouble of flipping pages constantly since instead of having a section solely for mapping each planet, the maps are dispatched between the missions/strike/patrol pages.
Only open areas are mapped, so it's really no help for finding your way through the temples on the Moon or the buildings on Venus & Mars. The Crucible maps are even more unhelpful, though the textual content of this section could be useful for beginners.
The "Additional bonus three-panel foldout displays a large-format Director's Map" promised in the description is nowhere to be found.

The strategies for bosses and the likes seem to be sponsored by Captain Obvious.
They seem to have spend quite some time on the armory section, with a lot of stats, which could have been useful for an offline game, but will be rendered totally deprecated once the first balance update kicks in. This time would have been better spent making useful and actually detailed maps.

The best thing about this book are the Codex and the Field Manual. They have some useful infos about the basics of the game and enemies you'll meet.
I liked the concept of the "Bungie's Dead Ghost Hints" instead of just pinpointing a location. Though things like "over the muddy water" in an area full of muddy water is less than helpful.

When they say "The Destiny Limited Edition Strategy Guide from BradyGames is the ultimate collectible for every player and fan", I have to strongly disagree.
This is a lackluster guide overall, I wouldn't recommend it.

Most big games don't come with instructions now a days. So they have started writing illustrated books to guide you through the game your trying to get through.
This book is not only a good read with all the help you need to get through the game, but it's graphics are beautiful.

Excellent quality, Fabulous pictures and Fantastic concept art included. Given 4 stars because through NO fault of Amazon or the provider, the content is a little outdated due to the expansions but highly recommended to a beginner of Destiny as it provides you with all the information you'll need to get going!

I wanted to search the free eGuide for a member of this games extensive production staff, but despite having a 16 character alpha numeric code in the rear of this hardback book and a link to the site it wouldn't provide me with the eGuide that I had paid for saying that the code had already been used (the product came vacuum sealed so I don't see how anyone in the distribution chain could have used it) and on clicking on Contact Us as invited, to resolve the problem, I was directed to a 404 page. This is not good enough and I cannot in good faith recommend Prima / BradyGames books to anyone on this basis. I will not purchase another from them in future.

EDIT: SINCE RESOLVED

Thankfully, it has been resolved and I finally have access to the eGuide. I sent them a .pdf of the digital receipt as Amazon hadn't included a printed one in the package that I could photograph and then used OS X Photo Booth to grab an image of the book held up in front of my face as proof that I had received it. I had considered deleting my review, but I will edit it instead.
