If I didn't want anything spoiled, I wouldn't buy the book.
J. Dillon
There is some useful information, but much of it is regurgitating details about feats & spells that you can find in the PDF manual that comes with the game.

It's a shame, then, that there isn't a SINGLE magical item crafting recipe covered in the entirety of this book!

I'm not impressed by this. There is some useful information, but much of it is regurgitating details about feats & spells that you can find in the PDF manual that comes with the game.

The biggest disappointment was that while the walk through basically took you through the game with some optional quests it didn't say anything about the Influence system with your party members.

For those of you not familiar with the system introduced in KOTOR you could converse with party members and get to know them better, this would affect how they behaved later in the game. Nothing in the guide gives you direction on which conversations can influence your party members or what options you should pick to gain or lose influence. In fact, the description of the NPCs is nothing more than the stats you'll see when they join the party and a brief 3 line blurb.

Additionally if there are any secrets or easter eggs in the game they were not mentioned in the manual.

Disappointing.

This is about one of the most useless manuals I have ever purchased for a game. I say this with the manual for TES Oblivion as a guide for what a game manual *should* be.

There are only the very shortest of blurbs for each quest in the main storyline available. There are NO side-quest walkthroughs or guides, so if you're like me and have completed Act II before realizing there were people you were supposed to have recruited for Crossroad Keep, well you're hosed. Not only Crossroad Keep, but any side-quest you may have missed. I've found out tons of important and necessary info on the NWN2 Forums that simply do not exist (and should) in this official guide.

I'm just astounded at the complete lack of any real, useful information in this manual. They spend the greater part of the book talking about Character Classes (in the free guide in the boxed game), Spells and Equipment, and very little of it going through what matters most. The actual gameplay.

I've rated this two stars because the enemy stats, maps, spells and equipment breakdowns are interesting and sometimes *gasp* helpful.

My overall recommendation is to save your money and check out the official NWN2 Forums for tips and help, or GameBanshee for a useful walkthrough.

Unsurprisingly, the fine folks at Bradygames have a non-functional 'Contact Us' form. If I put this product out, I, too, would want to make certain that I couldn't receive any feedback regarding it. So here, instead, is the text of my complaint to them, so that you might spend your money more wisely than I did:

Greetings!

I am writing to you regarding the absolutely abysmal strategy guide that I purchased for the game Neverwinter Nights 2. The Bradygames logo on it and the words "Official Strategy Guide" conspired to convince me that I should buy this thing - a treacherous act of deceit that I have yet to recover from. The guide for "Bully" was fantastic, and I have tons of others from Final Fantasy X and X-2, GTA:San Andreas, Front Mission 4, etc. I'm no stranger to Bradygames, and I'm usually more than satisfied with my purchases. But in this case ... well, allow me to list my specific greivances:

1) A huge percentage of the book's contents are directly from the instruction booklet. This is unnecessary padding. It can be safely assumed that I have the instruction booklet, or can download it. I don't need to pay you guys for an extra copy.

2) The 'strategies' are inane, and almost always boil down to "Keep your spellcasters back and have your tanks attack". Any tip that might actually make a fight easier (that I couldn't have come up with myself without half a second's thought) is only given when they're absolutely necessary to triumph. Ideas about where to lure enemies, trap locations (I'm especially upset that traps aren't pointed out at all in the maps). The numbers of enemies present are kept intentionally vague, a la, "Oh, yeah, there's a few spiders over there."

3) The enemy information is perfunctory at best.

As has been stated in the other reviews, no real substance to this book. I just wanted to add that this is the worst proof-read ever done. My six year old could have done a better job proof-reading. There are even entire passages that appear to be in French. WTF? You would think that as the person typing this out you could go back over your own text. Obviosly didn't happen.

See? It's not even that difficult. I just corrected two errors in my review. Before it was even posted. What a novel concept....

Unfortunately, this is one of the least helpful "strategy" guides I've ever used. Most of the information is in the manual, and the information that you REALLY want from a strategy guide, such as side quests, character subplots, and hidden secrets, is 100% absent. I was most disappointed that it didn't explain the character influence system - what situations and responses would change your influence, and what the ultimate result would be. For example, does influence trigger a side quest for each character or only for certain ones. Influence is hardly even mentioned in this guide. Another glaring omission is the lack of information about item crafting. I expected this guide to detail the different crafting materials, spells, and gems needed to build your own arsenal. Again, hardly even mentioned. I'm not sure what the value of this guide is, really, since everything in it would be discovered in the course of the most casual gameplay.
