The second major letdown is that a lot of the walkthrough is contained online. You need to visit a website and enter a code to find out about additional information. This is annoying in itself but now, eight years since the game's release, the website and content is no longer available. This doesn't prevent you from using the walkthrough to finish the game but the whole point of the walkthrough is to 'complete' the game by finishing all of the side quests and obtaining all of the best weapons. Finding out what you receive from certain side quests was contained online and now no longer available.
So when FFVIII came out i played through myself before purcasing PiggyBack's guide. I was very impressed with the detailed explinations and with the help of the guide i found all there was to know about the game.
I got FFIX recently and decided to purchase the book. I was very dissapointed... It dosen't at all live up to FFVIII's guide. Little things like a big world map to look at are gone, don't be fooled by thinking it is colourful, not half the colours of the previous guide. And as already pointed out, every time there is a secret the book dosen't tell you what to do. No no you have to go to a website and enter 'Key Words' to unlock the secrets.
As far as i am concerned i paid for a book to "read" not to point me in the direction of playonline.com It is irritating and i had prolounged abcences away from a game i was eager to play.
I am sure if you want to buy it you will, but don't say you weren't warned!
Despite this, when you do get onto the website and find the tips, it is very good.
Overall, a good walkthrough guide. Well worth getting. (It is possible to go elsewhere for the online things such as game faq[!!])

The guide is good but not great. This is because the strategy guide references to Square-enix's "Play-Online" service for certain intricate secrets and details. Read morePublished on 14 Mar. 2014 by Qeruberosu
