I don't normally purchase strategy guides since I can find most information I need online for free, but I have to say, this purchase is one I am extremely pleased with. For starters, the cover has a "soft" touch to it, which gives it a unique feel and will fit in perfectly on your bookshelf when you're done consulting it.

You get a complete walkthrough of the main storyline, detailed maps of all the little islands with exactly where the buried treasures are, plus this really great "Q&A" section in the back which explains the "present day" story in detail, just in case you missed a detail or two during your playthrough. The authors give you tips and tricks that you simply wouldn't know by playing the game, for example, in Nassau when you first arrive, the pirate fort in the NE appears to have enemies, but they won't actually attack you until a bit later in the game, so if you're gunna go exploring in that area, do it as soon as you drop anchor in town.

There's also a nice section in the front which gives a quick overview of each of the previous Assassin's Creed games so you aren't completely lost if this if your first game of the series.

I highly recommend this version of the strategy guide!

The Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag Collector's Edition Guide is packed with great content that can help every type of player. It comes with an ebook code for an online edition of the book, a full sized map, and a high quality dust cover. The inside content includes the story so far, primer( game structure, maps, combat ect.), walkthroughs of the main story, side quests, reference & analysis, multiplayer, and extras.
I really like the extra section of the book, because it offers Assassin creed secrets & story analysis with some great art.
The stock image does not give the book the proper justice it deserves, because when you see the book in person you can see how well the shiny black cover contrasts with the Assassin's logo.
This book is a must have for all Assassin's Creed players, and looks great on your self.

Was looking through the walk through and it goes down too detail. I just got it today and am less than halfway through but already know it will be great this is a steal and a must buy for anyone who is in love with the assassins creed series. Compared to many other locations such as GameStop are selling them for almost 40 bucks again a great steal and this will make sure you get 100% synchronization in your game.

Although I haven't played the game yet it because I pre-ordered it for PS4, I found this guide to be very informative. I liked how it had information about the saga of Assassin's Creed and also I like the new challenges in this game. I am excited to play it and I have heard awesome things about the game.

The book is awesome with almost 400 pages. Walkthroughs, side missions, hunting, treasure hunts, harpoonings, upgrades, everything is 100%. All the stories of the previous games for those who are unfamiliar with the AC series is in there. 64 pages of extras, arts, etc. The collector's editon also comes with a extra large 2 sided map with everything from islands to hunt on to harpooning locations. This book was a "its soo worth it" purchase. A true Assassin's Creed fan ought to get his or her hands on this masterpiece. And for those who say using a stradegy guide to beat a game is cheating; Reading is a mind opener and discovering how to get around the right way especially in a open world for you to do anything you want on is a necessary move. YOU'RE WELCOME!!!

I am an Assassin's Creed fan. I have been since my Grandson introduced be to ACII.

I started buying the Piggyback books because I was getting frustrated in trying to things in the game.

This is one of the best, imo, AC Piggyback books. Very, very comprehensive. The size is good, It is like a hard bound catalog size. That makes it easier to use.

I recommend it, as well as all of the Piggyback AC series. I'm limiting it to the AC series because I have not read any of their books for other games.

This walk through guide is extremely well made, with nice illustrations. In all truthfulness, I have to admit that I played the entire game without using this book, so it is not absolutely necessary for enjoyment of the game. Everything is covered, including the hidden treasure chest locations. The subject matter is well indexed and easy to find. As game guides go, this is a nice one.
