Format: Paperback
As an owner of the Prima Final Fantasy Tactics Guide, I had very high expectations for the new guide. The Prima guide was excellent, and everything a guide should be; well put together, offering pages and pages of useful tables, great battle maps, and useful strategies ... all without giving plot away (well, as much so as possible). Luckily, hit & miss BradyGames has created an excellent guide for FFT: War of the Lions that is just as good as its predecessor.

Pros:
* Very pretty to look at
* Very well organized, clean, and easy to read
* Useful and easy to read tables
* Great looking battle maps, with treasure grids and deployment locations.
* Useful battle strategies - it will help you win if you're new to the game or struggling, and will make sure you don't miss anything if you're a veteran and are breezing through.
* Many great hints and strategies for getting the most out of your party, many great optimization strategies
* The Job Overview section is very well laid out, and has a recommended skill set section for each job. Very handy for new players, and might offer new and exciting combos for veterans.

Cons:
* Several minor typographical errors. My favorite is: "Female [X Zodiac Sign] has the best chance of stealing [Y's] equpiment and everything he has is really worth taking. Try not to deploy" ... what a great place to cut off. :p Luckily, the really important information was stated
* I have 1 quibble with the layout of the guide. They chose to do a walk-through section, followed by a section of secret stuff/sidequests, followed by a section of the multiplayer stuff. However, the earlier multiplayer rendezvous are in the walkthrough section; only the later ones get their own section.

Well it covers everything you need in the game, and not just the basic walkthrough of each mission. It gives some really good tips on jobs and skills, some combinations I haven't used before that are really good.
Also it covers all the secret missions and how to beat them and also how to get all the secret characters, and it's no big secret Balthier from FF XII is one of the guys you get.

The book gives an in depth chart on all the missions, all the maps, all the items/weapons/armour you can get. And also guide for the Deep Dungeon (one for the hardcore with time to spare) to tackle.

Aside from it being a great guide... you will be happy to know the artwork is great too. Not like some guidebooks that are so fnctional I may as well read it from gamefaqs.com... this one is lovely. As you can see from the cover, you get a few bits of eye candy. And on a small note, the pages aren't fragile thin as they are plastic coated/filmed.

This strategy guide does contain a lot of useful information, but it could contain SO much more. They tried hard to make it as spoiler-free as possible, which has the disadvantage of leaving out quite a bit of helpful info. The strategies outlined for each encounter are relatively weak, and although one of the highlights of the 'Tactics' series is the fact that there's no "one right way" to go about the battles, it's definitely helpful to have some tips and pointers in some situations, and this guide is completely neglectful of those. Also, I would have liked to see more illustrations- this guide pretty much just gives pictures of each of the jobs, and a quick portrait of each story character, and that's about it.

It does have useful maps, and information about the 'Treasure Hunter' ability. I hate to say it, but since this is pretty much the only strategy guide available, I'd recommend picking it up- though if you're playing on iOS know that there are some MARKED differences in the experience. All in all, it's not terrible, it's just not quite what I was hoping for.

If you've picked up Final Fantasy Tactics: The War of the Lions and you're interested in all the extras, then this is the perfect guide. If you've got the original Prima Games guide to the original Final Fantasy Tactics, you're not getting a whole lot of info for what has been added to (and changed) from the original Final Fantasy Tactics. In short, even if you have the Prima Guide to the original game, the Bradygames guide is a far better investment.

The guide begins with a long introduction. It's nothing special, but quite interesting to read if you're a little interested in the history of Final Fantasy Tactics.

The guide then goes into the basics. Despite being ten years old, Final Fantasy Tactics is still a fairly complicated game in many respects. If you're familiar with the original version, then the game basics section isn't meant for you. However, there are still some valuable tips and good information here that's good for those who are unfamiliar with the game and those who need to be reacquainted with it. It does a far better job of explaining the game than the instruction manual. There's also a great deal of information here that isn't present in the manual. If you're having trouble understanding the way Final Fantasy Tactics works, the strategy guide is a far better resource than the manual. The basics section is huge, spawning over twenty pages filled with tons of information. By the time newcomers are finished here they should be able to breathe Final Fantasy Tactics.

When we're done with the basics we move into the job system portion of the guide. Once again, you'll find some helpful tips and you'll also find a job flow chart that will show you what job levels your characters need to be to access new jobs.
