--Kingdom Hearts Final Mix--
As I mentioned above, the Final Mix version has some new features but is overall the same game from before. When buying this guide, I was expecting a fair amount of copying and pasting because of this. What I was hoping was that the writers would at least make an effort to update the existing text with the new information.
- Boss strategy for the new secret boss, "The Unknown"
- Synthesis recipe list
- List of new special enemies
What's NOT Included
- Synthesis ingredient list
- Strategies for new special enemies
- Gummi ship missions
- Gummi blueprint list
There could be other items I could add to the lists, but I haven't yet dived into the Trinity list nor the Dalmatian list (both had minor changes in the Final Mix versions). I will update this review when I know for sure on these two items and others.
One major issue for me is the lack of information on the new enemies. These new enemies aren't just normal hack-and-slash kills. Most of them require a strategy to kill or get their special item to drop.Read more ›
Many of the Dalmatian puppy locations are listed incorrectly in this guide - I had to go searching online for help with the most difficult ones, when I should have had that information under my nose already. Heartless unique to Final Mix are barely mentioned and no strategies are given to defeat them, much less how to obtain the rare synthesis items they drop. Boss strategies in general are vague and not particularly helpful. I remember relying heavily on the strategies in the original guide (especially since I was quite young when the first game came out), but these aren't helpful at all for the novice player. The guide as a whole offers nothing for the experienced player. To you, I recommend buying the original guide if you can still find it anywhere, and supplementing your "research" with video game forums.
The bottom line? Unless you are a beginner or a casual player who has no intention of achieving 100% completion for these two games, this guide is a heavy, nice-looking waste of money. I wish I had known all of this before pre-ordering it.
I won't go into all the details, since so many other reviews have already spelled it out, but a lot of information that would have been helpful was not elaborated on in this guide. And if you're like me, trying to get all the trophies for all three games, then you'd be disappointed to know that all they have is a trophy list. No "How-to" thing for getting trophies.
And there's no section for the gummi ship missions. At all. And that is arguably the hardest trophy to get in the entire game (getting every blueprint). The fact that the guide gives you no help for one of the most difficult sections in the game is very subpar.
The Re:CoM section is rather vague. Lines like "Go into the next room, fight the Heartless if you like, then continue on" make it seem like they really only focused on KHFM. And every world in Re:CoM only gets a single page, front and back. There are exceptions, like Olympus Colisuem, but the fact that each section is so short shows how little they actually "guide" you through the game. It's more like bulletpoints for you to follow that you really could've figured out on your own.
The only really helpful parts are for the bosses. This guide helped quite a lot for the Re:CoM bosses, offering great suggestions about what kinds of cards or sleights will be most effective for winning. If they had showed more of this kind of helpfulness for the rest of the content, it would have been awesome.Read more ›
The build quality of the book is nice - the art is pretty and the pages are premium paper stick. But half-assed work on paper is still half-assed.
Save yourself the cost of purchase and use the online guides you can find through Google. You'll find them to be much more useful.
Prima: You keep on showing why you're not a reliable guide company. You want to make this right? How about re-issuing this guide in a complete form and giving those you screwed over a discount on the expected sequel book you're going to make for II.5 HD Remix. Oh wait, this is Amazon, you're not going to read my review.
