The cover and lithographs are very attractive and of amazing quality. The poster is a single double-sided one; two separate ones would have been better. The guide pages are thick and vibrant.
First of all, there is nothing here you cant find in an online guide, for free. That being said, this guide is a helpful... to a degree. I did notice that tips for completing challenge rooms are very general and many of the Trophies/Achievements lack any tips at all.
DLC: The map packs are covered, but Robin and Nightwing are not. They have unique gadgets and you wont find any help for using them in this guide.
Collectables: The main ones (Trophies and Riddles) have photos, but unfortunately, the side ones (penguins, Harley heads, etc.) are only icons on a map.
Walk through: I won't be using this (why read the game when you can play it?), but it does seem thorough.
The extras (Lithographs, beautiful cover, etc.) is what really makes this a great purchase.
- Boss fights are broken down and easy to find via the table of contents
- Directions are relatively easy to follow with only very few exceptions
- Visually stunning art work
- Lithographs that come with this game guide are really cool
- Difficult to find the spot in the book that corresponds to where you are in the game
Off the top of my head, that is the only negative thing I have to say about this game guide. I have enjoyed looking through it, and when I do find where I'm at, it is most helpful. Overall, I would recommend buying this game guide to anyone who wants the collectible lithographs and cover art. If you're looking for a good quality game guide, but don't care about the art, then get the standard version.
Before you submit your order, click on "Add Gift Options" on the left side of your screen. On the subsequent page there is space on the right to write a note. That's where I very politely asked for the Catwoman cover in capital letters. Lo and behold, that is what I received. I tend to think that whoever packed my guide listened to my request, because my gift note was not included in the package. In any case, it can't hurt to try.
Best of luck to everyone, and I'd love to get feedback from others who try this.
1)Shipping: As always the shipping of amazon is first class. They said it will take 2-3 business weeks to ship in Canada. But i got it in 1.5 weeks. That's super fast. The packaging was great. The price is decent.
2)Guide: This guide has two type of covers. One is batman and other is cat women. I was hoping to get the cat women one and when i opened the box its cat women. The limited edition has six litho of joker,riddler,penguin,two face,mr freeze and Harley Quinn. Those are great if you are a collector of artwork and this type of staff.
The walkthrough in the guide is decent and well explained. They try to explain every feature and approach to go along with the game. The side quests were explained well. It had also covered the catwomen Dlc part in the walkthrough.
Only drawback seems to me is that on Riddler trophy section where they should have explained more. Some trophies are hard to locate with only the location on the map. cause they are well hidden.
Overall the guide is a good collection to have. Its recommended for those who likes the all extra stuff in a game and wants to complete it 100%. Or simply for those who likes to collect a decent collector edition guide.
