More About the Author

WRITER OF TALL TALES AND HEFTY STRATEGY GUIDES

After fleeing from a rusting, condemned, dry-docked German fishing trawler slowly sinking into the River Thames, Manchester-born author David S J Hodgson spent his formative career years writing for the UK's premiere video game magazines. After a stint at MAXIMUM magazine and the Official Nintendo UK magazine, he emigrated to the United States, where he joined the crew at the part-fraternity, part-sanitarium known as GameFan magazine. He wrote his first guide in 1996, and has authored close to 100 official video game books. Highlights include official guides for Metal Gear Solid (1998), Half-Life 2 (2004), Zelda: Twilight Princess (2006), Fallout 3 (2007), Skyrim (2011-2013), and WatchDogs (2014). He also wrote The Improved Emperor's Guide to Tamriel (TESO Imperial Edition), and The Hero's Guides to the Elder Scrolls Online (2014). He lives in a shed overlooking Los Angeles with his wife, dog, and an eight-foot statue of Great Cthulhu.

Format: Paperback
This is one of the worst books Prima has put out yet. It has good strategy sections, but when it comes to facts, this book is full of errors. The fish and insect charts are simply wrong in many cases, saying certain species aren't available in some months when they really are and vice versa. Prices of housing additions are wrong. Information about store hours is wrong. Finding info on a specific item is extremely difficult, since nothing is in alphabetical, no pictures are supplied, and the name of the items is in small print. The calendar of events is wrong, with erroneous dates and missing events etc. What's even worse, the Prima website does not have an errata posted that corrects all these problems. Go for the Nintendo Power guide. You'll be a lot happier. You can get it at Nintendo's website free with a subscription to Nintendo Power magazine.

This guide is a waste of money compared to the Nintendo official guide. The Nintendo guide has pictures of everything: furniture, carpets, wallpaper, clothing, fossils, tools, fish, insects, stationary and more. It also is much better organized and has pictures of everything. The Prima guide is hard to read due to it's four colum per page format and the item guide is horrible. The only thing that saves this book are the charts of when to catch bugs and fish, although there are some wrong information and it does not tell where they can be found. Get the Nintendo book if you can, at Kamrt when you buy the game, you get the guide. The Nintendo guide is worth having.

This guide is so full of errors. Errors that really can affect the quality of your gameplay. Their furniture list is wrong, the museum info, what you can and cannot buy back from the nookmeister, when and where to find fish and bugs, some of the song names for totokeke. event happenings, parts or all of these things are wrong.
This guide is a complete waste of money.
Not to mention the lists are neither alphbetical nor in the same order they appear in your catalog, and there are no pictures of the items, so finding things for reference is next to impossible

Format: Paperback
This guide is a great tool for Animal Crossing fans to find out what pieces they are missing from their sets, and when activities happen (in general) and items can be found. Beware, however, if you are looking for a guide that will tell you every detail of your game. Due to the nature of Animal Crossing, no guide can give you a complete list of what to expect. The guide includes a calendar of the events for 2003, so if you're playing the game at the current date and time these events will not be accurate. This guide can tell you what to expect, but can't tell you exactly when and where it will happen in your Animal Crossing town. The only way to do that is to play your game every day ;) The layout of the guide makes it easy to catalog what you have collected and see what you are still missing, but looking up items takes a bit of page turning. There are nearly complete item lists, and approximate timetables for catching fish and insects. Overall, this guide is a great resource for collecting, but it can't replace the months/years of gameplay necessary to 'complete' the game and do all there is to do in your town.

This one is simply not in the same league. Don't settle for less. Get the Nintendo version.

The Prima guide has tons of useful information, like how to get certain items and where certain bugs tend to be. The information is accurate for the most part, but it lacks the one thing that is essential for a game like this--pictures of all the items, characters, insects, ect. What I like about the Prima guide is that it goes into more detail about gameplay and has strategies for doing things (such as getting items). Since item collecting is like 99.99% of the game focus, and will be 150% of your obsession, having pictures of all the items is essential and the lack thereof a huge oversight.

I was fliping through it in a store. It's okay, but it mainly tells you what items are, where to get/find them, and has an inventorylike apperance. Before I left, I also looked at the Nintendo Offical Stratigy Guide. Nintendo's guide tells you about different items and where to find/get them or earn them. It also has a different layout and better info. Like I said it's okay, but Nintendo's is better.

Although Prima has written many good guides, this is not one of them. It stinks. Descriptions are weak, strategies poor, and instructions difficult to follow.
