The presentation alone and quality of the artwork and layout is what makes this guide a real collector's item. The front and back hardcover artwork along with the red ribbon with writing on it to match Bayonetta's ribbon are great touches of quality that all fans of Bayonetta will appreciate.
The information on how to best play the game is solid and well written. You can tell that the authors of this book have taken considerable time and effort to ensure that the best possible advice on how to master this game is provided.
I would highly recommend this book to not only strategy guide lovers, but also those people who really appreciate a fine art book. I consider Future-Press to make the best guides available today and this guide is another example of their outstanding commitment to making quality strategy guides.

This is a hardcover guide with over 400 pages, including a 32 art and interview section. The book even has a ribbon bookmark, an imitation of Bayonetta's hair ribbon. There's also a nifty quick reference card which I use as my second bookmark. Actually, there's so much information I'm using three bookmarks.
This is a very thorough guide covering everything from weapons, combos, accessories, strategies, combat techniques, enemies, strategies, secrets and of course the walkthrough. The main chapters are Scenario Guide, Pure Platinum Battle Guide, Angels, Combat Guide and Secrets.
Future Press really did a fantastic job with the Scenario Guide or walkthrough, which is concise and easy to follow along. If you want to retain the element of surprise during the first play, you can just use the maps to locate all the items and the hidden Alfheim Portals. Finding the hidden Alfheim Portals without any guide will be a bit difficult as some of them appear only under certain situations. Note that under different game difficulty, item locations are sometimes different.
Chapter 3, The Pure Platinum Battle Guide, details the requirements for the Platinum rank and the strategies for every verse, under the Normal, Hard and Non-stop climax mode. This and enemy section are incredibly useful when facing grueling boss fights. This section is for the serious gamers who want test their limits.
My recommendation when reading the guide is to go first to the combat section to understand the weapons, combos and combo scoring. For a character, Bayonetta has more combos than any Street Fighter characters.Read more ›
The collector's edition of the guide is wonderfully presented with a hard cover and even has Bayonetta's hair ribbon for a bookmark!
I look forward to going back through the game on non-stop climax mode with this guide at my side!
The guide is probably the best and most thorough guide I have ever purchased. Aside from the mass of delays,(original release date was alongside the game's) I knew it would be worth the wait. Everything is in there. Its huge! This is by now means a book full of text alone. There is a The movie codes you can use on the Future Press website add even more depth to an already intricate guide. Its a shame that it can not be directly sold outside of Europe as it is the ONLY guide book in existence. The look and feel is simply beautiful. This is, contrary to what most other companies claim, a true collectors edition guide. I want a second copy! Get it now!
