1.0 out of 5 stars Highly inaccurate, 17 Feb. 2014

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 Remix: Prima's Official Game Guide (Prima Official Game Guides) (Hardcover)
When I pre-ordered this item it was delayed due to overselling, and after further issues (not being dispatched despite it being back in stock), eventually I received it a week late, however, I did get given a £5 gift voucher from amazon as an apology, so the response was good, but not great.
When it did arrive I was over the moon, it looks great, is sturdy and had a ribbon bookmark.
However, many months on, I have, on numerous occasions, found many errors in terms of chests and in hollow bastion there is a floor that is laid out completely wrong, with a chest containing the wrong contents - it was confusing to say the least because from my perspective I was in a room that didn't exist opening a chest that didn't exist.
Another example is that each area of a map is numbered with lettered entrances and there is a list of chests with basic instructions on how to get to them, e.g three chests had the notation "Through entrance o" there was no "o", they meant entrance D, this is in Wonderland - the most confusing world in terms of entrances and exits.
And anyone who wants to find the Dalmatians should just YouTube it because you will not find them using this guide, so many of the numbers are incorrect, and are in the incorrect place, trying to find 67,68,69, at the back of the guide it says they're in 9-2 in halloween town, they're not, they also aren't listed in the information at the beginning of any of the worlds, no their real place is in halloween town, in 9-7 from the white trinity (which according to the guide should give you "Comet-G"). These errors aren't print errors either, I used the code provided to get an online version and the mistakes are still there (could be easily corrected too).
Oh and the most obvious mistake - the first I noticed, the map of the worlds, poor old Monstro has been put on the bottom of the second loop instead of the top, it seriously baffles me how you could get that wrong, you make the picture by copying a picture.
Did they even check this? If they did, it was spelling errors only, not the actual information. Truth is I could probably spit out a better guide than this, and I just might give it a go.

Just want to say that Monstro's position can change depending on where you encounter him, which explains that aspect.

Really disappointed to hear that there's so many mistakes, though. I mainly want this for the artwork, though - so I might still consider it later on.
