I knew I had a 50/50 chance of getting the cover I wanted. When I opened the package and realized I got the Catwoman cover... I was elated! The Batman cover has the same image found on the game disc and manual. Why would I want more of the same? Plus, I found playing as Catwoman extremely fun and am happy to have her on the cover as memorabilia.

The cover and lithographs are very attractive and of amazing quality. The poster is a single double-sided one; two separate ones would have been better. The guide pages are thick and vibrant.

The Guide
First of all, there is nothing here you cant find in an online guide, for free. That being said, this guide is a helpful... to a degree. I did notice that tips for completing challenge rooms are very general and many of the Trophies/Achievements lack any tips at all.

DLC: The map packs are covered, but Robin and Nightwing are not. They have unique gadgets and you wont find any help for using them in this guide.

Collectables: The main ones (Trophies and Riddles) have photos, but unfortunately, the side ones (penguins, Harley heads, etc.) are only icons on a map.

Walk through: I won't be using this (why read the game when you can play it?), but it does seem thorough.

The extras (Lithographs, beautiful cover, etc.) is what really makes this a great purchase.

Like a number of reviewers, I was frustrated by the seeming lack of choice in specifying my preferred cover. I may have discovered a solution. Granted, you have a 50/50 chance of getting the cover you want anyway, but I think doing the following will put the odds in your favor.

Before you submit your order, click on "Add Gift Options" on the left side of your screen. On the subsequent page there is space on the right to write a note. That's where I very politely asked for the Catwoman cover in capital letters. Lo and behold, that is what I received. I tend to think that whoever packed my guide listened to my request, because my gift note was not included in the package. In any case, it can't hurt to try.

Best of luck to everyone, and I'd love to get feedback from others who try this.

Format: Hardcover
Let me begin by praising the artwork and detail of this product! The amazing hardcover is beautifully concealing the many lush easy-to-follow strategy guides within. This book was written in such a way that secrets are still kept from the gamer who doesn't want to be too spoiled; however, continue to page through at your own discretion.
My only critique is that various side-quest details are absent as well as other extra Riddler's riddles. This quibble is minute compared to the vast information within this limited edition guide. This guide relieved me of so much potential frustration!
Please, buy this book if you wish to have a comprehensive Dark Knight experience.

For a guide, this product is satisfying in paperback for the cheaper price. As a collectible, I suppose it's worth the extra money.

I only had one use for this guide, really; completing all of Riddler's Side Mission. There's an entire section in the back devoted entirely to the side missions, and most of my review will focus on this section. The main gameplay section is perfectly adequate for a guide, and doesn't leave much to be desired.

The collectible features, if you're into them, are worth the extra money, and the hardcover is nice, although it would be better if you could choose which cover you get. I thought the game was BATMAN: Arkham City, not CATWOMAN, so I was a bit disappointed that my guide had the Catwoman cover. The poster has Harley and Catwoman on two different sides, but the Harley side is just a blown-up version of the lenticular card it includes. It was also impossible for me to remove the poster without tearing it slightly, one of my biggest pet peeves when it comes to guides.

Each map appears exactly as it does in the game, and herein lies the problem. While the guide in the Riddler's Riddles section divides each section of the map as the game does, it would be nice to have one map that shows everything and then subdivides by city areas.

While the map is adequate, the locations of riddles, trophies, and breakable objects leaves much to be desired. If I wanted the vague locations I'd use the map guides given by Riddler informants. The guide simply breaks the informed map up so that you can see where just riddles, or breakable objects are.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
First i have to say i am not a very expert reviewer. But anyways lets start:

1)Shipping: As always the shipping of amazon is first class. They said it will take 2-3 business weeks to ship in Canada. But i got it in 1.5 weeks. That's super fast. The packaging was great. The price is decent.

2)Guide: This guide has two type of covers. One is batman and other is cat women. I was hoping to get the cat women one and when i opened the box its cat women. The limited edition has six litho of joker,riddler,penguin,two face,mr freeze and Harley Quinn. Those are great if you are a collector of artwork and this type of staff.

The walkthrough in the guide is decent and well explained. They try to explain every feature and approach to go along with the game. The side quests were explained well. It had also covered the catwomen Dlc part in the walkthrough.

Only drawback seems to me is that on Riddler trophy section where they should have explained more. Some trophies are hard to locate with only the location on the map. cause they are well hidden.

Overall the guide is a good collection to have. Its recommended for those who likes the all extra stuff in a game and wants to complete it 100%. Or simply for those who likes to collect a decent collector edition guide.
