The Prima strategy guide for this game is the best I've ever bought. Most guides have a main walkthrough section followed by the side quests. That leaves you flipping back and forth and hoping you complete the side quests before they're no longer available. The only flipping I have to do is to merchant inventory and skill descriptions.

This guide goes through the game in a chronological order mixing the main quest with the side quests. It mentions achievements and attributes that can be obtained. It also mentions all possible quest outcomes and allows you to make the choice based on what type of game you want to play. It allows you to complete the quests to get the most xp, get the best loot, or to align your character with a certain NPC.

Most of the questions I've seen online would be easily answered with the guide. Well worth the money.

I don't normally use game guides as I believe it spoils the game for me by taking away the wonderment of discovery. BUT The Witcher 2 is not a normal game, and it has an immense amount of replayability value, and this guide really helps in uncovering the different paths you can take. Plus, I've already completed it on my own so I thought of using a guide on my second (and third, and fourth, and..) playthrough.

It has a lot of easter eggs, extra info such as pop culture references, references to books by Sapkowski, recommendations and tips on what to buy from merchants so you don't waste your hard-earned orens, detailed maps and locations, a comprehensive guide on creatures and items/weapons, detailed character background, well-organized quest progression guide, information on how to get passive abilities, consequences of taking certain paths and how it affects later parts of the game, and most importantly, interviews with the game developers! For such a low price for a book full of Witcher goodness, this is definitely a MUST-BUY for not only fans, but the general gamer out there.

The only downside to this book that I can think of right now is that there is no Collector's Edition Hardcover version of it. I will definitely buy that in an instant.

I have literally gone through dozens of game guides through the years and this guide for The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings is easily one of the best I have ever seen. It is loaded with information about everything - weapons, armor, bestiary, achievements, and more. To top it all off everything is incredibly well organized.
This guide will hold your hand from beginning to end if you want it to or you can just use it to get past that place where you're stuck. No matter where you go down this games fantastic branching story line this guide will be there for you. It is even more useful than the games Wiki guide, yes - it's that good!

I love the game and the game made me purchase this Witch 2 official game. I have not as yet read the book from front to end but that will come later. The book graphics is fantastic and the info is a must have for a new gamer like me. No negatives as yet. Recommend this book if you really enjoy the game.

What can I say ? I have been playing Computer RPG games for around 20 years and have used Guide books for every RPG when available.I LOVE having the printed version of any Guide for an RPG due to the fact that it unfolds every facet of these detailed worlds at your fingertips.This is one of the MOST comprehensive Guidebooks I have EVER seen.When you play an RPG , it is ESSENTIAL to have a Very Good guide to help you enjoy every facet and detail of the game.There are always MANY secrets and side quests that can be difficult to pinpoint otherwise.This is IMHO - one of the MOST well researched and detailed guides I have ever used.Absolutely a MUST buy if you are playing this game.Great Maps,Strategies,Complete Chronological Quest Walkthrough with Main and Side Quests in Best taken order,VERY detailed charts and references,little sidebars for ALL of the many POP culture references,ALL Easter Egg locations,plus the consequences of taking certain path choices.The Information alone on building a Great "Dark Mode" character is as detailed as it gets.In Dark Mode , you have 3 different "Unique" sets of Armor to get and this guide gives you details on where to get each piece.Before I got this guide ; the BEST,MOST well written guides for RPG`s were from Bethesda (i.e. - Fallout and Elder Scrolls games)and the Guidebooks for Final Fantasy games.This GUIDE is every bit as good as those.Do yourself a favor and pick up this Guide.You will be so happy you did.Highly Recommended !! There are NO Detachable Maps or Chart/Posters that come in a New version - so a Used copy will be complete enough - that is what I bought.Mine was 30 bucks used ; but the price is increasing rapidly ; probably due to the fact that Steam is currently having a 75% off sale on both games.Enjoy !!

I have to say that I buy guides with most of my games. Most are just ok. This one is great. The only other guides that I thought were great were the Prima guides for Skyrim & Fallout 3. This one is also very informative.

Normally I don't deal with game guides, but due the many twists in Witcher 2, I had to breakdown and invest in this guide. It's very comprehensive, and I believe a must if you want to get the most out the game.
