Missed a lot of important information, and maps are good,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Dark Souls: The Official Guide (Hardcover)
I bought this book solely for the maps, not very high expectation, so I am very satisfied with just the maps. And yet, the guide following the map missed something like how to get to certain area that are clearly not easy accessible. Sadly, my character died trying to get to some areas that the guide didn't provide much help other than pointing the location.
Regarding the actual strategy guide part. Well, like many RPG, there are many ways to skin a cat, so what is presented in the book is just one way to play the game. I'd encourage players to develop their own strategy, after they get familiar with the game. For myself, I don't go explore each area following the book. Having said that, I am half way through the game and I find the boss fight strategy helpful, so instead of died million times, my character may died about half-million times.
Weapon and armor upgrade guide is very helpful too, so I don't waste precious upgrade material on something with low damage.
Unless you want to write your own game wiki, this book will be very valuable.

Just wondering how come Dark Souls does not have a built in mapping system? Wish they would think of this for conveniences for the game player.
