Before he was Dan Birlew, writer for Brady Games, Dan Birlew was known on the web as President Evil. There is a reason for this. Birlew has been writing game walkthroughs, plot guides and more for horror games for years, and he knows his stuff. He is not a mere serial writer for a corporation, he is, was, and ever shall be a gamer. He knows his stuff, and he explains it well.
This game guide is well-written, concise, and mananges to navigate you through the trickier parts of the game with ease, without ruining any of the shocks and surprises. This is a difficult thing to do, but Birlew is a past master at it. He can not teach you how to be a skilled gamer, if you are not already. He tells you how enemies can be outmanuevered and defeated, how to get through the game in the shortest possible time, and how to survive the tricky bits. It is a Strategy Guide, not a cheat guide, and as a strategy guide it is the best you could ask for. Buy it.

This guide is a concise and thorough guide. I have to give credit to the author because doing some of the feats in this game the way he did seemed nearly impossible at first but using Dan Birlew's strategies I managed to survive everything this game threw at me with no problems.
The walkthrough is much better written than their RE1 guide was. Not as many typos and they don't result to the Kill everything strategy that was previously used. Puzzles are easily described and while the guide has points where it is difficult to read...you have to remember that Dan Birlew is an RE veteran so you can trust what he's trying to tell you in this guide.
What I like about this guide is that it is simply that, a guide. No spoilers, but rather right to the point in helping you get the best from your gaming, in helping you get through an area in the best way possible. They recomend what items you should drop (like that Knife that is only there to taunt you), and what room to drop it in.
They also have a very nice way of helping you adapt to the game, something I don't usually get out of strategy guides anymore. Most guides wouldn't go into so much detail on the aspects of the game and helping you prepare to master it first. Most other guide would much rather jump into the walkthrough right away.
This guide is a companion when you go thorugh RE0, and not a guide that completely holds your hand. Helpful hints and easy puzzle solutions as well as easy to see boss call outs. In other words, a nice organized walkthrough. I couldn't ask for anything more. This is the best RE guide I've seen from BradyGAMES since their N64 RE2 guide. Great Guide, if you need help on RE0 you should definitely pick this up.

This was a great investment for me. I'd have the game for a while now and was stuck at the brakes of the train and the book finally got me past that part. It also help me get through the game easilier. The only thing I didn't really like was that the book doesn't always tell you the correct thing, but when it comes to codes or passwords, it helps alot. I have Resident Evil 4 and I had to get the book for that game also. They really help you out. I would recommend this book or any Resident Evil book for the games because the game are very hard to get through without the books.

Item was not as described. Described as "Like New". However, there was water damage throughout the book and the pages were all stuck together. Bacobooks never responded to my request for help on the order. Amazon refunded the money, but Bacobooks SHOULD NOT BE TRUSTED!

More About the Author

Dan Birlew is an author and video game expert who has been writing official, published video game strategy guides since 1999. His original career goals included acting and directing. Video games always excited Dan since he was seven years old, but at the age of twenty-six he began honing his playing skills with the goal of becoming an expert gamer. He enjoyed publishing online documents regarding games, known as "FAQs". Dan inadvertently created an online persona for himself when he wrote and self-published on the Internet a plot analysis of the highly popular survival horror video game, Silent Hill. "The game's story was somewhat vague, and demanded that someone try to explain it," says Birlew.

Upon receiving an overwhelming number of positive responses from other Silent Hill fans, and after some gentle nudging from his wife, Birlew decided to set aside his acting and directing activities to establish a career as a video game strategy guide author. He sent writing samples to several publishing companies. Based on the merits of his very first submission, he was hired by a major publisher within 24 hours. Birlew says, "It was as though I had won the lottery."

Birlew has authored over sixty published video game strategy guides and seeks other methods of publication, such as review columns, articles, and other non-fiction video game-related books. Birlew says of his passion for games, "I love exploring video games, the industry, the culture, the fans -- and there is so much of it about which I can analyze and write." He also bears a strong desire to publish fiction, and is currently working on a novel concerning the paranormal.

Dan Birlew is a native of St. Louis, Missouri, and has lived in Pennsylvania, Texas, and California. He now resides in Las Vegas with his wife of seventeen years. He graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Texas at Austin in 1993. Besides video games, Birlew also enjoys Japanese films and dining with his family and friends in the restaurants and clubs of Las Vegas.
