Great companion to an amazing game
on January 22, 2013
This book is stellar. I am not well versed in the standard gameplay of RPG's as I have only played a few in the last 20 years. So for people who have played a lot of RPG's and are familiar with the ins and outs of the game mechanics, this may not prove too useful. As players guides seem to be more collectibles now than anything, that was the second big reason I wanted to get this. I ordered the Wizard Edition of this game when it was again up for Pre-Order on January 17th and that was mainly to get the Wizard's Companion hardcopy book, which is full of complete listings of Familiars, spells and has a bestiary, something this guide doesn't really have. This guide by Prima, I wanted for when I am getting my ass handed to me in boss battles, or lost in the woods or am not quite sure where I need to backtrack to next. I like that this book is spoiler free, I love the full colored pictures and the textured hardcover, this has great binding. There is also a decent amount of interviews and concept art which is great for a look into making this epic game. I really kind of just wanted everything collectible for this game, whether or not this will come in handy really depends on what kind of a player you are and your skill level. If you just want to collect something quality and pretty and Ni No Kuni related, this is a great thing to get.
