Customer Reviews

The guide was a great help with listing where all the hidden goodies were.

I was getting tired of looking up online all the places for items in the game.

Just what you could expect from a Guide to a game as big as Assassin's Creed.

This is what a game guide should be. Beautifully put together, this guide is full of pictures, maps, and illustrations. The guide starts with a nice game overview section that gives you some basic pointers, explains core concepts of the game, goes through controls, etc. Basically, it brings you up to speed on the game in a clear and concise manner. After that, it moves into your standard walkthrough, with lots of illustrations and maps. It is very easy to follow without spoiling the game. Of course, perhaps the most important part of an Assassin's Creed walkthrough is help finding all of those pesky collectibles throughout the game, and this guide takes care of you there.

Bottom line, get the guide. It is beautifully designed and executed, and it will simplify your life and add to your enjoyment of this game. This one isn't as essential as a guide for Oblivion, for example, but it is still well worth picking up.

Simply put, this is quite possibly the best player's guide I have ever purchased. If you haven't played the game all the way through yet, continue reading at your own risk. I describe elements of the game you may or may not prefer to discover as you play through it. you have been warned.

It starts off with a few short explanations on controls and maneuvers. I particularly enjoyed this because I found the AC2 game manual to be lacking.

The walk-through is very well put together. Each time you enter a ewn city it gives a map with codex pages, viewpoints and the game's database landmarks. For the walkthrough portion, all the left-hand pages are the main storyline and all the right-hand pages are general information of interest and trivia. It also lists the free missions (assassination contracts, races, couriers tasks, beat-up assignments, etc.) at the end of each memory sequence.

The Reference and Analysis section describes, general tactics and strategy, weapon and armor statistics, shop inventory and enemy archetype strategies. also incredibly useful information once you're looking into a deeper mastery of the game.

Last but not least-if you're like me it's the reason you're considering the guide-the extras. Achievements, unlockables, secrets and collectibles (which are broken down by DISTRICT, not city and include a screen shot of their locations). The collectibles' locations shown in the guide are limited to the glyphs and the feathers on the maps broken down by district. This makes sense since map markers for the treasures and codex pages can be obtain on your map in the game.

I bought the guide to play along with the game. I played the first game with good success so I figured Id tackle the second one. The guide was a great help with listing where all the hidden goodies were. Id buy it again if I had too. It was worth it.

I bought the game guides to help with finding the extra things I couldn't find on my own. It's worth the money, I found all the things I was looking for.

I could not have made it far without this guide. I've always found AC's controls difficult to remember, and some of the missions left me wondering what to do. I know most games have free online guides, tips, and videos, but I'm partial to the original guides. (Yes, I do check out those videos when I get stuck!) If I'm going to spend full price on a new game, I always get the official guide.
