Kingdoms of Amalur turned out to be a really compelling game. It has guilds, a gazillion quests, a large open game world, and terrific combat. There are good walkthroughs on gamefaqs, but I wanted more detail. This book has all the statistics and details on game mechanics a geek could want. I especially like the print quality and attention to detail. The book lists all the trainers and skill book locations, a more complete list than the online alternatives The weakest part are the walkthroughs for each quest. They're quite detailed, but quest descriptions are often snide, and the maps aren't nearly as helpful as other walkthroughs. A good example of what I mean are the books for Dragon Age: Origins and Skyrim. Gamebanshee hasn't posted an Amalur walkthrough, but its other walkthroughs are top notch and a good example. Still, this book does the trick and is well worth the money. It's massive, as big a book as the Skyrim and Dragon Age books.

This is a very high-quality, thorough guide to Kingdoms of Amalur. Encyclopedic in scope and detail. It has all of the information I need for the game, and I have not noticed the same kinds of errors I sometimes see in other guidebooks. Very useful in a game in which you make so many critical decisions on what fate/destiny to pursue.

Also, I have to comment on the physical high quality of the book itself. The hardcover, binding, heavy page quality, and clean font are all of the highest quality. This book is very durable physically and is beautiful. Having used some game guides in the past that literally came apart at the seams (disintegrating binding and pages falling out - I'm looking at you, BradyGuides...), this level of physical quality is very appreciated.

A great book, and a must-have for a game as big as Kingdoms of Amalur.

The guide is well put together... but I give only four stars of five because it could have been put together content-wise in a little different way and been more easily used. But the content itself is very well done. Excellent graphics and attention to the book as though it was more a work of art than a guide book.
The team seems to have been trying for a superb book and for most folks probably succeeded. A+ for effort.

The only reason I drop a star is that for me personally I prefer the information laid out in another format. My problem not the guides publisher.

Wow what can I say about this amazing book,anyway when it finally arrived I couldn't believe the weight of the box,I thought there must me a load of things in there,it weighs a ton or just over 5 LBs and is of amazing quality way better than you'd expect for a game guide,the book in crammed full of useful information about the game and in great detail it has 600 pages and will be a very daunting read,therefore I will only refer to it as and when it's needed,but if I could have changed one thing it would be the spelling as everything is in American English or lazy English as I prefer to call it,other than that it is perfect and by far the best game guide I have ever seen.

The reason for the 4 star is that the font is small!!!!! I love the game and just a few minutes of game playing I new that I wanted the game guide and the price was great for what is offered inside. I am new to the game which I highly recommend and this guide book goes hand in hand. Again, the font is small but so glad to purchase it. If you got the game, then buy the book!!!!!

I always buy the clue book, don't want to miss anything. If you like this game, the clue book is well worth buying. Hardcover. Covers just about everything you'll want know. The dungeon/area layout seemed a tad bit confusing(I'm easily confused), but it didn't take long to get comfortable.

This guide has everything. An excellent walk through and a very good explanation om etems found in the game. The maps make it much easier to locate places that are talked about before they are visible on the game. Beautiful hard cover, worth the money you pay.

I'm a treasure hunter/collector/perfect game player myself and Reckoning is just so massive that some sort of guidance was definitely in order to make sure I found everything there was to find. This book was not my answer. While it does light a few candles on how certain things work and it's definitely filled to the brim with maps and charts, the information is disorganized at best and outright nonexistent at worst. I saw too many areas where the authors were more content to add in filler, talking about lore or just being colorful, rather than saving that space for hard data relevant to the game. Maybe this is just me, but I expected more. At first glance it wouldn't be too difficult to compare this to finer guides, like Skyrim, but after trying to find a few things in it you'll soon learn that it's more like trying to find a needle in a haystack than locating information in a well organized strategy compendium.

But still, I will say that the guide is much better than not having a guide and there is a plethora of information in it that might otherwise go unknown...it's just far from complete or organized.
