    Linear? Maybe. Easy? Definitely Not!

    Long time fans of the Final Fantasy series may have been initially put off by the game and the style of play in the beginning. Requiring one to speak to the NPC's is one thing but putting you on what is clearly a linear track is down right horrible because it will make the game too easy. That's an easy perspective to adopt before you've moved beyond the first of the 3 discs. When moving to the second disc, the story and the gameplay gets more cerebral. You're unable to just hack and slash your way past enemies. And when you get to the point that you start to "acquire" the various summons characters, forget about it. At that point you'll have to experiment and try different tactics to be successful. Meeting seemingly unbeatable enemies will occur more often as you progress. And without an experience friend to advise you, you'll need to pick up this publication.

    This volume is one of the most concise books on a game of this type. The complexity of the game makes this book a requirement. Situations that arise during your quest will make it absolutely necessary for you to consult with this book. If you have any desire to be "perfect" in the game, you'll need this book.

    The Walkthrough portion gives you a clear map of the area you're experiencing. Where the bad guys are located. The location of treasures and other items of interest. Also an explanation of the importance of the area for those actually interested in the story itself. The Walkthrough takes up a great deal of the book pagewise but is only a small fraction of the wealth of information the manual contains. All the information you'll need, and some you don't, about weapons, accessories, items, and the characters is laid out in easy to understand tables and graphs giving you a player every opportunity to make the best choice of who, what, where, and why you should use something or someone.

    I've tried to use the manual sparingly, thinking I'd like to finish the game on my own decison making as I possibly can. But after devoting 101 hours and 43 minutes of my life to defeat the final boss, I found that the last 10 hours could easily have been another 50 if I hadn't read up on what I was experiencing. My plan is to play through the game again at some point and use the manual from start to finish, clocking the time and drawing a comparison on how developed the characters and weapons end up.

    Final Fantasy XIII Complete Official Guide

    Great reference book for those times when I was "stuck" in the game. Sometimes the maps are a little difficult to read - particularly related to the side quests for "Marks." Overall, great book, very indepth detail on weapons, beasts, and accessories. Great ideas on how to beat all the major and minor bosses. Well written to prevent spoilers to the story line. Highly recommend this to any fan who wants to uncover all the secrets and glory that is FF XIII!
