The pictures are fantastic and the information is presented very well.

We pretty much buy a guide for each skylanders game we get and they've been great in helping us quickly find things we missed when playing without.

I agree with Squ8mata that this does need more detailed information on the adventure packs, need walk thru's for those areas (and release dates for Empire of Ice and Dragon's Peak) I have the crypt pack and will be getting the pirate pack and am hoping there is information in these packs telling you what you use the bonus items for or how to use them. I definitely will want a walk thru for these areas because that is what I found to be the helpful part of this guide.

I tested the game before wrapping it for christmas and every round I did I never got all the stars at the end. I'm aware that I couldnt get all the stars for anything past area 1 since I was only using the 3 initial characters and they can fully unlock all of area 1 but need other elements to unlock elemental spots in the other game areas above area 1. The guide helped me find the legendary treasure I missed after 4 tries (was simply because I hadnt pushed the one turtle to the area I needed to get to the magic elemental area).

Only thing this guide cant help you do is get thru the levels in the alotted time frame. They give 3 minutes for area 1, and maybe it could be done if you could bypass all of the dialogue at the press of a button but only some dialogue can be skipped, for some reason various dialoge you have to listen to and it's annoying if you are trying to get thru the area in the 3 minutes it gives you. And like the other reviewer mentioned, no info on the legendary characters so you dont know what kind of 'stats' they have to know if they are worth investing the money in.

Other than the missing adventure pack walk thru info, I'm glad I got this guide.

This book has a good overview of each of the characters, a complete walkthrough of the main game, and a decent bestiary. What it lacks are walkthroughs of the add on areas, as well as explanations of what the extra items such as those in the expansion packs actually do. What is present is good, but it is missing enough to be frustrating, and I can not call it complete.

I am a Mom of a 6 year old and Not an avid gamer. I bought the Skylander's game for him for Christmas and we have had a BLAST!! It can be a little challenging through some of the mazes. We have accomplished 16 out of 22 levels in one week on our own before I bought the book, so I wouldn't say it was necessary, but it really was helpful in the UNDEAD areas of the game.. My son would get a little scared there and helped us get through a little quicker. I honestly can't imagine how long it would have taken to get through "The Grand Ballroom" in Level 17 if we hadn't just got the book.. It also helps with knowing which character to use to get through the challenges with Cali. They are still hard to get through for me.. but it helps to know who the best bet to begin with is. It doesn't walk you through any of the heroic challenges.. but I'm actually glad to have an element of not knowing everything.. It will be a while until October of 2012 ..when SKYLANDERS GIANTS will be here. There is a page of stickers with 17 of the characters on the last page of the book (not the best quality..but not the worst either). I was surprised to find quick view maps of the 4 Adventure Packs that exist now or are coming soon...This book may not be what you would call complete..at least as far as the Adventure Packs walkthrough..but an only new "gamer"..that didn't play as a child and a six year old that hasn't played much either..well, we didn't need ALL the steps of the walkthrough for the Adventure Packs. Showing us where to find the soul gems and treasure chests were plenty for us. My kindergarten son got through the Empire of Ice level WITHOUT even using the book ALL BY HIMSELF in 20 minutes. I wouldn't let this be the "deal breaker" for whether or not you get this book.Read more ›

This strategy guide is a must!!! It is helpful in explaining who each Skylander is and helps you choose their path and upgrades. Trust me, you will never find everything there is to find on your own. It comes with maps for all levels including the Adventure Packs. It proved to be very helpful when going back and trying to complete levels with 3 stars! My daughter loves it and I got one for her best friend.

Santa delivered Skylanders for Christmas, and Little did I know at the time how much fun this game would be. It also appears that Activision also underestimated how popular this game would be by the scarcity of the pieces. My 6yo son and I play this game almost every day. I have had almost as much fun trying to track down the different elemental creatures. We defeated the game with not too much difficulty but as we have learned that is only a small part of the game. At this writing we are about 37% complete with the game. After looking for this book in all the stores and not finding it anywhere I got it off line. I must say it was definately worth the price. Every thing you could want to know is in there. We started back at Chapter 1 and the book has shown us where all of the items ie treasure chests, hidden hats, legendary items and soul gems are that we couldnt find. I wish I would have bought the book sooner, but am very glad we have it.
