First off, I can do nothing but thank the other people who posted a review about this cluebook! If I had bought this cluebook before beating the game, I would have spoiled SO MUCH of the plot of this awesome game! The spoiler warnings should be taken to heart if you want to be surprised in the least bit about what's going to happen next in this game. Also, from what I've notice lately, all Brady Games' cluebooks are rampant with spoilers. I have the ones for FF7, Parasite Eve, Metal Gear Solid, and now this one, and ALL of them spoil the games' plot! So far, the Xenogears one is the worst. Right from the first section, which contains character bios, it tells you what happens to the characters throughout the game, and spoils several of the plot twists in the process. But despite this, Brady Games does make some of the best cluebooks out there as far as game detail. If you're one of those people like me who likes to do every little thing possible in a video game, get their cluebooks! If not for the spoilers, this cluebook would've gotten a 5 star rating! In closing, I'll repeat, DO NOT get this cluebook if you haven't beaten the game, or don't mind spoilers! If you do, don't even flip through this book if you see it on the store shelf! The pictures in it are just as bad!

If you have to buy this book(why????) then I would like to say this: If you use this book it will keep Xenogears from being the masterpiece that it shoudave been. This books rips chunks out of the story left and right and really destroys it. Luckily enough I saw this book(courtesy of a friend)after I beat the game so it was no big deal for me. If you really stink at RPG's(which leads me to the question Why did you buy Xenogears?)or you are one of those people that doesn't care and just wants to see the ending then by all means spend your hard earned money on this title. Or if you are set on buying this cheat book well then atleast wait till you beat the game without it.

I read the the book when I first bought it. It was nicely illustrated and shows the gears. It really helped me through some difficult levels. One god thing about the book is that it shows the HP, etc of the bosses. But one thing I dun really like is that it does not show all the gears. For example, Fei has a total of three gears throughout the whole game. But the book only shows the first gear. I think that they should maybe show all the gears in one or two pages. At least we would know how it looks. But overall, I not only like the book, I love it!! Go get it if you have the game but you dun have the guide book yet.

A good book for a great game. I can't recommend the game enough, really. The strategy guide is definitely good at telling you where to go and everything, but it needed full color maps so you could find the treasure more easily. Also, there are tons of story spoilers not in the text but in the pictures of the game (there are even spoilers on the back cover!) So, if you have already beaten this game I would suggest getting this guide just for the item, enemy and weapon charts as well as treasure lists but if you don't want the story spoiled for you and want some fun your first time through, don't get it.

Xenogears is the hardest game I have ever tried to complete in my entire gaming life! When you open up this book the game is made that little bit easyer , but this is the same with all Brady games guides isn't it. Please take a great hint from me and never read further than from where you are in the game.Why you ask maybe because it will spoil the brilliant plot that lies before you! And definitely never read pages 175 and 176 it tells you the ending sequence, OH MY GOD! What a massive mistake they have made there huh? A great help but did it have to be a spoiler at the same time!

The Xenogears strategy guide helped me a lot in certain areas where I got stuck, but then again the directions were a bit off and confused me at times. I had to rely on my desire to explore levels before I actually knew what to do. The art and overall design of the book was really good, and the enemy index in the back helped me a lot. At times I regret buying the book, but then again, it did help me when I got lost and didn't know what to do. I highly recommend that you rely on yourself ( and not the book)to beat the game, but if you need help, the guide does work.

The problem with this book is that it tried to address the need for a SOURCEBOOK which is absolutely essential for understanding the complex story of this game. Who the hell else was confused? Perhaps you can help me out here. Too many spoilers in the wrong places, with no follow up.The game was incredible and it deserves a more in-depth role-playing type book which would help us all keep the facts straight. Mind telling me who Grahf really is? And Miang!?

This strategy guide is one of the best by far. It goes in-depth about all the aspects of the game with nothing left out. It gives all the deathblows, gear parts, items, accessories, and more. A definite buy for the Xenogears fan. It really helps too. Trust me. I beat the game. And the strategy guide helps immensely. Buy it if you are a Xenogears fan.
