Customer Reviews

I was very disappointed and wished I didn't buy this.
D. Mulhearn
If you got it for just the story walkthrough and nothing else it's not too bad of a guide and it will get you through the game easily enough.
Geomancer
The map is set up like a grid* but not where in the square the item chest or harvest items are.

The guide itself is nice looking and well made. It does good on talking about the items and general help info. But the maps *the part you will DEFINITELY want to be good* aren't that great. They show you where save points are and where you can enter/exit that area. But they don't show you where you can harvest items. They tell you in the paragraphs where it is located *example C3. The map is set up like a grid* but not where in the square the item chest or harvest items are. So you can be looking around for abou 5 minutes just combing through the grid square trying to find a patch of flowers the guide says is there. I wouldn't really recommend this guide to most people. There are a lot of dedicated guide writers online who will be a lot more help to you then this guid is when it comes to items. If you are just interested in character bios and stats it's ok but nothing fancy.

This is your typical BradyGames guide, several typos and short on information. Unfortunately it is all you have at the release of the game since online guides (at least good ones) do not exist... yet.

Maps:

These are helpful to see the entire zone; the map in game is zoomed in really far so you have to scroll around to see different areas making it difficult to get the overall picture. The downsides to the maps are they don't show anything but logic stone locations (save points). They do not tell you where harvest points are and they do not tell you where treasure chest locations are. In the text of the guide they will tell you some of these, but far from all of them. I could forgive them on the gather locations since there are a lot of them on each map, but not the treasure chests. I trusted the guide at first to let me know where those where, but when I went back later to do some grinding and to collect resources I found several more in areas that were not a direct path to the next story objective. Very disappointed in this.

General Walkthrough:

This is decent enough; it will guide you through all the puzzles in the game and keeps you on track for finishing the story. As mentioned above, it will point out some of the gather locations and treasure chests. It gives you the map grid location, you then must search within that grid for it. Sometimes it is more specific (Southwest corner for example) but not always. I have found some errors though, like telling you to go somewhere you can't because you need to complete a story event first. It will also tell you how to build your characters (in a general sense) if you need that kind of advice.

Boss Strategies:

They work, but I sometimes wonder if they even played the game.

Though the walkthrough portion of the guide is sufficient, there are a few areas that lack any of the detailed information I was looking for:

Skill Charts
The only information in this part of the guide that cannot be found in-game is the pre-requisites for each skill. Even this information is not organized in a very useful manner, presented as text in a chart alphabetized by skill rather than listed as they are in-game. Detailed information that one would get upon purchasing a skill, such as the strength of each skill or their Action Chip costs, is nowhere to be found.

Materials
The numerous charts in the guide take up many pages, but all lack one very important element: where they can be found! Instead they've decided to include the short descriptions, which are not helpful in any way. If a player wanted to farm these materials, they would need to scan through the lengthy bestiary instead.

Stats
All throughout the walkthrough section there are tips regarding what skills to purchase, many times including stats such as vitality, dexterity, etc. Nowhere in the entire guide is any thorough explanation of what these stats mean, how they effect gameplay, or what advantages one character has over another.

Maps
The maps included along with the walkthrough are exact replicas of the large map you can see in-game, and have no added icons marking treasures, gather points, or larger enemies. This makes them just about useless.

Though the walkthrough is useful, anyone who wishes to find out some of the more detailed information about this game would be wise to instead reference the White Knight Chronicles Neoseeker wiki. It is a work in progress, but will eventually have much of the information lacking in this strategy guide.

I am a long time gamer and I purchase the books specifically for Maps and Sidequests. Big disappointment in the Maps in this book. The maps are grids and "black". What's the point? NO locations of treasure on the maps, parts of the game you come to dead ends in a particular area, not mentioned ON the map because it's Black!! The only good thing was the section on the sidequests, but again the maps for each quest was useless! I was very disappointed and wished I didn't buy this.

I found this strategy guide to be very helpful in completing the main quest in order to finish the game. It did not stir me in the wrong direction nor did I find any errors. Again, this is strictly speaking of the main quest.

If you just bought the game and just want to enjoy the main story line and don't want to spend hours trying to solve some silly puzzle, this strategy guide will get the job done.

I would highly recommend this guide highly to the casual gamers primarily interested in the main story line and main quest of the game.
