This is one of the many strategy guides by Prima and it definitely lives up to its name. Alone in the dark the new nightmare blows resident evil out of the water with its amazing fast-paced graphics and intruiging detailed and "pull you in" story line. With Prima's official strategy at your side you are ready for anything. As you take control of Edward Carnby or Aline Cedrac, you are faced by the minions of evil and the horrors that lie in the shadows. This guide has all the necessary tools for your survival in the mansion overtaken by evil on Shadow Island: -walkthroughs for BOTH characters. -complete character, monster, and item stats. -great training tips for enhanced playing. -exposed secrets, item locations and puzzle solutions. - and as an added bonus, it has the history of the Alone in the Dark series and behind-the-scenes look at the making of the game. Prima's guide sums up the term of excellence all game guides should have. This guide appeals to gamers of all ages, its extensive walkthroughs help each character unfold their destiny, and with all the exposed secrets and items, it will have you playing and guessing at every corner....NOT! With the revealing walkthrough you will know what is coming around every corner...but it'll still be scary trust me...the graphics make this game in a league of its own NOTHING yet so far can compare with this game, and with the strategy guide at your side as your extensive info companion, you'll be almost unstoppable...unless mom accidentally unplugs the playstation while plugging in the vaccuum...hope you saved! That's another good point...SAVE A LOT!!! and mark the page where you are in the guide...just incase it closes by accident...or was it Obed Morton??? Just kidding...Read more ›

You must buy this book if you want to finish the games. Both solutions to-the-finish are here for the Edward Carnby mission and the Aline Cedrac mission. All the secrets are here. You might even find some of your own. Item locations and what you need to get and what you need to do next is all here. There are over 1,110 photos of both games to help you get through each scene step by step. The skill and determination is up to you. It is possible to complete both missions. I highly recommend the book and buying a Playstation red, emerald or blue memory card for your Playstation PS One. You will get through Alone In The Dark: The New Nightmare game alot quicker. The book is helpful for all systems you play the game on.

If I didn't get this book, I would probably still be stuck in the office trying to figure out how to get that darn projector to work! Thankfully, Prima came to the rescue! It's a good book that gives away ALL the secrets, so if you want to keep on guessing this book is for you! The grreat thing about it is that it gives you a lot more background info on characters and plot. The bad thing is that it is a little confusing as to the organization of the info...and their is a lot of information to organize! Overall a good strategy guide and worth it if you feel like giving up!

I totally got ripped off buying it here. I don't know much about game guides but I bought this book because I was desperate to get past a certain monster (in the beginning of the game no less!!!). Without it I never would have known that I had missed picking up the triple barrel shot gun that I needed to dispatch the nasty litle booger!!! I looked at the price and knowing it was rediculous I purchased it anyway. I've seen this book for $50 so I figured maybe they were rare or out of print. I paid for expidited shipping and it still took 10 days to get to me and the worst part was that it arrived with a $7.99 price tag on it under the $29.99 one!!! That just pissed me off! Other than that little rant the guide is great and I highly reccomend buying it. Check your local Game Crazy store if you have one near you before shelling out the big bucks!!!
