Good walkthrough, but could have been more complete

Like several of the other reviewers have said, this game guide does *not* have any information on the different classes available for using more than one type of elemental Djinn (spirits which can be attached to your characters to increase their stats, be used in battle to perform various actions, or summoned in battle for a powerful attack) or which monsters drop which items. Information like this, which can be helpful for people interested in more than just completing the game or completing the game with all the Djinn, is available at various gaming websites like [...] and will likely become more detailed/complete as people update and finish their guides.
As for what's in this guide, you have a pretty good introduction to how the game is played and a detailed walkthrough telling you how to progress in the story and where items/Djinn are located along the way. It's not 100% perfect in picking up items - for example, if there's supposed to be an item in a barrel, check the surrounding barrels or boxes around the area - but it does a very good job with where and when Djinn and treasure chests can be obtained, especially where or when to go back if your current party is unable to obtain it at the first time you see it.
In summary, this guide does lack information that more seasoned RPG players or those familiar to the Golden Sun series may find helpful, but it has most of the basics that a casual or first-time player would need to complete the story and would be a decent purchase for novice and repeat players of the games in the Golden Sun series.
