More filler than killer,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning The Official Guide (Hardcover)
I'm a treasure hunter/collector/perfect game player myself and Reckoning is just so massive that some sort of guidance was definitely in order to make sure I found everything there was to find. This book was not my answer. While it does light a few candles on how certain things work and it's definitely filled to the brim with maps and charts, the information is disorganized at best and outright nonexistent at worst. I saw too many areas where the authors were more content to add in filler, talking about lore or just being colorful, rather than saving that space for hard data relevant to the game. Maybe this is just me, but I expected more. At first glance it wouldn't be too difficult to compare this to finer guides, like Skyrim, but after trying to find a few things in it you'll soon learn that it's more like trying to find a needle in a haystack than locating information in a well organized strategy compendium.
But still, I will say that the guide is much better than not having a guide and there is a plethora of information in it that might otherwise go unknown...it's just far from complete or organized.
