Excellent well written strategy guide.

Hyrule Warriors doesn't exactly need a guide book, but the Zelda collector who appreciates phenomenal artwork in a beautiful hardcover book will appreciate this guide.
Erik
The character designs are particularly great in my opinion, so to see concept art of them as well as some insightful commentary was truly a highlight for me.

I really love this guide. Maybe it's because I've wasted money on some truly atrocious limited edition guides lately, that this one seems so great in comparison. This guide for the awesome Hyrule Warriors is genuinely informative with an excellent format, and its production values are superb. Truly, this is a great guide overall, but it's not without its caveats, which I will be sure to address in my review.

The guide is organized into several sections, each one covering a different mode of the game, with a celebratory art section at the end. The guide opens up with an intro to the guide itself that includes a very well-written forward that establishes the tone for the rest of the book in a nice way. The first section is entitled "Hero Training" which basically boils down to bringing anyone unacquainted with Dynasty Warriors up to speed. Given that most people buying Hyrule Warriors are undoubtedly Zelda fans and more than likely have never played a game in the niche DW series, this section is very helpful. It makes the game's core concepts very easy to grasp and simple, without muddling the more complex aspects. Great opening.

Next is the "Walkthrough" section which is broken up into two main subsections. First is the "Legends Mode" walkthrough, which includes a very detailed, well-written breakdown of every story mission in the game. It lasts about 64 pages. The second subsection is for the game's "Adventure Mode," which is a mode where you are given a massive gridlike map where each square is composed of a specific task or mission to complete.

I am one of those people that like to 100% all my games. I picked it up because I wanted an easier way to find where the best places to pick up certain material drops (instead of trying to google it everytime), and maybe a few strategy's for avoiding damage for those A's on the harder adventure mode stuff. Whelp this did not help me. In fact some of the info in the adventure mode section was actually wrong?(Comes with a code for an online pdf version which I think got the info right but still). Its like the person who wrote it agreed with the other reviewers on here, pretty straight forward game so why try? Irritating. The artwork section is fun, I appreciate the online version with search capacities and I like the hardcover but its the same basic info you can find on the IGN guide for free soooo waste for me.

Excellent well written strategy guide. I am not a fan of the cover but you know what they say don't judge a book by its cover. The description talks about having like 30 pages of art gallery, I'm not an art fan so I wasn't to excited about that but I really enjoy it in the book, they talk about why the made the characters look the way the look.

The game is not incredibly hard so you don't need this book to beat it, but it helps with finding the items and skullas

Don't know how you could get along without this guide. Somethings require the exact warrior, sword, and time combination to unlock and I don't know how you could accomplish many tasks without this guide. It's wonderful. Beautiful artwork, durable pages, and did a good job of explaining each scenario. Very happy with this purchase. Probably would've paid twice as much!

Things this guide should have but doesn't:
-What each combo for each Hero & Weapon actually does (This was a big one for me)
-Where to find each material (Tells who drops them but not which maps to find them)
-What materials you need for the badges (book actually refers to a "Badges Chapter" but it doesn't exist
-Map of where Gold Skulltulas are in Adventure Map Scenarios (only gives vague descriptions)

There's probably a few others I found the guide lacking, as I have with previous guides from Prima. I should have known better. Also with the recent update of Volga, Wizzro, and Cia being playable the guide is out of date now since it has nothing for them.

Bottom Line: nice artwork but lacking the details that would give you a good physical guide without having ti get additional details online.

Update 10/30: I'm dropping this down to a one star because I found numerous errors for the Adventure map section. They list the wrong boss/enemy names, the wrong number of kills to get the Gold Skulltullas and various other things.

I mainly bought the book for the art in the back. It's not that much but I do like that it's in english. The e-book thingy is cool too if you want to search through things quickly but I have no use for it.

Very helpful for finding all the items and perfecting each scenario. But the best part is the nicely bound hardcover and all of the cool Zelda artwork!

Screen shots in the book are very dark and small. Hard to make out. The artwork in the book are great!!
