GREAT VALUE WITH VERY HELPFUL TIPS AND INFORMATION
on November 4, 2012
Skylanders Giants is a little more complicated to go through without this guide than the Spyro's Adventure version of the game. It may not get you to 100% completion, but it will help with going to bed at a more reasonable hour. It is a reasonable investment for around $13.00. Giant's has a lot more puzzles and card games to do within each level, which means more time to complete. You get a detailed Charactered Profile page including upgrades and strategy, the overview map of the level, where all of the Legendary Treasures are, the Story Scrolls, the Hats, the sequences for the Lock Puzzles, the items in Auric's store for the level and your opponents hand in Skystones(the new card game). This book does include some new information on Quests. All Skylanders have 9 quests you can choose to complete. There are unique special quests for each skylander, universal quests and elemental quests. It doesn't list all the quests in the chapter dedicated to quests but it does list how to achieve the elemental quests. You can actually find the skylanders individual "Special Quest" on their own personal summary page. It lists the ownership accolades, the achievement accolades, the hats and what increases they give you(for the most part). I've run across one hat that wasn't included in the summary chapter but it was included in the overview of the level and how to find it. It also describes Brock's arena challenges and Auric's items available in his store within their own chapters. One of the biggest tips that it gives you is where to find the 4 Luck-O-Tron wheels. They are pretty hard to come by on your own and provide bonuses or boost your Skylanders' abilities. For your money you get a lot of help for the many challenges that you will face.
