Play the game with this guide.
Charles Maldonado
The item list does not tell you where to acquire the items, only that they exist.
Tim McNaron
There are some pretty good descriptions here with some clear screen shots.

Whether you are an old school DQIV player like I am, or a neophyte getting your feet wet with this new DQIV port, I would seriously recommend picking up this guide while it is still available. Not only is it simply GORGEOUS, filled with detailed, full color illustrations of the characters, towns, weapons, armor, etc, it is an incredibly useful tool for getting the most out of your DQIV experience.

It's true that as far as RPGs go, DQIV is not all that difficult---- I was in 6th grade when the game was first released and I did just fine without a guide. However, if you don't have months on end to stumble around caves trying to find magic switches which lead to the next floor or trying to find the best way to earn even SOME coins at the casino so you can get the best weapons and armor, I believe you will be quite grateful for the assistance this book offers. Not only does it have thorough lists of characters, weapons, armor, items, and monsters, it has a full walk-through, detailed maps, and best of all, helpful advice for sidequests such as how to get the best items from the first casino, how to build your immigrant town in order to find the hidden casino, etc. For those of you who are familiar with the old version of the game and who are caught off-guard by the 6th chapter, there is a full walk-through for that as well.

This book loses one star because while the items list is thorough and beautifuly illustrated, it does fail to list where each item can be found.

Dragon Quest games are huge. The world is vast, filled with tons of side areas to go through and secrets. Finding all that stuff on your own can be tricky. Luckily, there's this helpful little guide that can help you along just about every step of the way.

The guide begins with details on all the characters. It doesn't just list their spells, but all the things they can equip through the journey as well as their stat growth (though it looks a little weird looking at their HP as the line for every character is literally off the chart). So there's a good deal of information. The guide also gives a bio for each of the supporting characters as well.

After that we get into all the preliminary things about the game. This is where all the basics get explained. The guide doesn't spend too much time here, and any veteran of the RPG genre won't really need it at all. However, if for some reason you find there's something you don't quite understand about Dragon Quest IV's mechanics, it's here.

The walkthrough itself is very well done. It's divided into chapters. First there is the prologue and then there is each and every character's prologue explained as well. The main quest is also broken up into little chapters. Each chapter begins with a quick run through of all the things you'll eventually have to do and all the places you'll have to go. You can think of it like a flowchart. There's much more, of course. The guide does have sections for each town and dungeon. There's an items list for each area you have to venture to. It'll also tell you where to find the item. Unfortunately, despite some pretty detailed maps (especially of the towns) the guide doesn't exactly show you where the items are on the map. It simply tells you.

I've played this game before for the NES, and loved it, but it has been a while, so when I saw it was being released for the Nintendo DS I instinctively purchased the game and guide. What I like about this guide, is it is what it says it is, a guide. It is not a walk through, It will not tell you how to do everything step by step. It will tell you where you need to go next, people it reccommends you talk to, reccommending levels, weapons, armor and items to bring with you etc. It lists the bosses health, effective strategies, and so on. So I still got to enjoy the game without being spoon fed. If your looking for a 100% baby spoon fed guide go to gamefaqs and get a walk through. If you want to experience a game like it should be played, with some tips, and lists of items, enemies, and very good maps grab this guide, its worth it.

There was one mistake in the book regarding the location of some mid-grade weapon, but other than that this book was very good. The pictures are beautiful and the character analysis in the beginning was very interesting. I frequently used the monster compendium as a reference as to the location of the monsters which allowed me to completely fill my Book of Monsters. The game was more fun as a result of having this guide as a companion.

A very colorful and exciting game. Lots of twists and turns. Pay attention to building up your characters, this is very important. The suggested levels posted for particular areas are not always spot on. Go one step further and add one level to your party, particularly after Chapter 3. You do not always have to have the latest armor but the best weapons is the better choice!
