The Prima strategy guide for this game is the best I've ever bought.
Erich A. Mabray
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.
JRoe
This is IMHO - one of the MOST well researched and detailed guides I have ever used.

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!

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.

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.

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.

Having not played Witcher, I was pleasantly suprised by the newer game. This isn't the typical hack and slash. Strategy is of the utmost importance here and I probably wouldn't have done as well without the Prima Guide. I don't follow the letter of game guides but I find them helpful from some of the recipes and side quests.

I'm not part of the targeted demographic for most games being a 61 year old kid with a full time job. I prefer fantasy "medieval" RPG's. I highly recommend this guide
