In a "What were they thinking?" move, the points of interest are NOT listed in anything resembling the path players take through the level, meaning the first thing you encounter might be bullet point number 7 or maybe 42! The maps also don't note where the player starts or where the end is. All of this drastically reduces the usefulness of the maps as quick references to find things.
They do list tips and recommended weapons for all the verses, and they do list all the weapons and what chapters their found in, but we're missing the comprehensive coverage of all weapon combos and how much damage they do that the original game's guide had. No fancy bookmark either.
Finally, the "Behind the Scenes" content is all taken from the Platinum Games' blog, including URLS to the original posts - don't expect any unique content or insight here. So while the cover is nice, don't expect more than a bare minimum level of effort in the end product. I bought Prima's Hyrule Warriors guide recently, and it was a better product.
The bayonetta 2 guide is a lame collection of unreadable numbers, charts and jokey text. The most annoying thing is, in trying to locate secret events and verses in each chapter, the book's writer has laid out the sequencing completely upside down. So you might actually begin at event 24 on his map, and end at lower number - it makes absolutely no sense! Also, in listing the combo moves, it fails to describe even simple details like which combos are launchers - a highly important detail for a game based entirely on details like that! Weird - and lame.
Graphically, it is very colourful at least, but the screenshots are just eye candy - there's nothing visually explanatory. In terms of layout, it's fugly all the way through - everything stuck into boxes with text slugged underneath. Overall it gives the impression of being designed quickly for children, which is a shame. I'm still using the original Bayonetta guide as my reference for the move set, which remains essentially (or intuitively) the same for the sequel.
My buying advice: get Bayonetta 1, play that, get the future press guide for it if you can find it on ebay, then play bayonetta 2. You won't need this guide anyway by then!
otherwise,its a nice collectible to have if you're a bayo fan
its written with a tad of humor too so its fun to read
it also comes with a code to get it digital-so thats cool.
Has everything you need to get you through Bayonetta 2 all bound in a sexy premium hard cover!
Includes a code for eGuide version and concept art with interviews from the designers of the game.
A must have for Bayonetta fans!
As Rodin would put it "Beautiful!"
