This strategy guide is excellent. The Legend of Zelda series has a tradition of complex puzzles and hidden items that are enough to drive even the most ardent fan batty while trying to play the game to the end. I long ago decided that I would rather be able to enjoy the game I spent my hard-earned money on than to curse it and its designers for my lack of insight. This guide is especially helpful with the side quests, although I might have asked for dungeon maps that weren't quite as confusing. As a bonus, you also get a complete walkthrough of the bonus Ocarina of Time: Master Quest disc. All in all, a great guide for a superb game. Well done!

I can't imaging being able to complete this or other Zelda games (Ocarina, Majora's Mask) without some sort of reference guide like this. The nuances and sidequests would just be wayyyy too much for the average Joe to figure out without some help.
That said, while there are more "hints" built in to Windwaker, the guidebook is a great reference in finding hard-to-find items such as heart pieces, treasure, etc. It also has a pull-out map of the great sea with all of the islands and what can or cannot be found on all of them. This, in addition to the standard walk-through make the guide a great value. Throw in the walk-through for Ocarina of Time (for those who bought the Windwaker/Ocarina Master Quest set) and it's amazing it didn't cost more.
Well worth the investment if you just HAVE to have every single item in the game. :)

I don't use a lot of strategy guides, so my opinion might reflect my limited experience. But when we (my son and I) couldn't figure out what to do next or remember what we had already done in the WindWaker game, I decided to get the strategy guide. This guide is very well laid out and gives you needed information without spoiling the game for you. Half the fun of a Zelda game is the storyline, and this guide does not give away important plot development. Though I was able to find important items located on each island without having to return to the location over and over again. (And it does take a while to sail around the world in that little boat!) I found the guide well thought-out and an invaluable aid in my 'virtual' quest.
Another person commented about the lack of info on the Nintendo Gallery. I must agree about that. Though I have found (in my 4th play-through) that trying to get all those photos is a huge and fun challenge. This is just an added feature to give the game replay value. If you are dead bent on getting the details on the Nintendo Gallery, do a search online.
Overall, I would highly recommend this particular strategy guide.

Now, like most people, I wanted to get Prima's strategy guide. But after I read the reviews about it, I heard it just gives away the whole story. So I went with this one. It's great. I mean there are some things that may be hard to understand what it's talking about but it's relatively easy to find out matching the pictures with the area you need to go to. Also, this book tells you the items and enemies you will find before every temple. Personally, I don't care that it tells me what I should be looking for. I just don't want to hear the whole story before I'm going to later. So I highly recommend that you get this strategy guide.

A Kid's Review on June 21, 2003
Format: Paperback
This guide is AWESOME! It's very thick, and has the best maps of any guide I've ever seen.(And I've seen alot.) It's waaaaaay better then the Nintendo Power guide.(Even though NP is my favorite guide author.) The NP maps STINK. But that's just my opinion. Cool things it offers:
* COMPLETE WALKTHOURGH
* GREAT 3-D MAPS
* LOCATIONS OF ALL HEART PEICES,TREASURE MAPS,AND ISLANDS
* DETAILED ENEMY AND BOSS INFO
* MINIGAME AND SIDEQUEST COVERAGE
* COMPLETE FIGURINE DESCRIPTIONS
PLUS:
*WALKTHOURGH OF ZELDA:OCARINA OF TIME
*PULL-OUT POSTER
Unlike any other guide, it has spoiler warnings!

Conclusion:Buy this guide.. OR I'LL EAT YOU ALIVE!!!(Not really)

A commercial guide is used to help the player get through a game with minimal effort and meant as a time saving effort. It has to enhance the player's experience by giving clear, concise maps, listings of items, weapons, enemies, as well as divulge secrets hard to find on your own.
Doug Walsh suceeded in most criteria. In his walkthrough, he assists the player by placing accurate maps, marks the rooms, item locations and gives boss strategies. The sidequests section is equally choke full of useful strategies. A section by section of WW's 49 sections are given-a pull out 2-sided poster helps in your task of exploring the world of WW. In these, he has done an excellent job.
However, the Nintendo Gallery collection, easily the most daunting task faced by any Zelda fan, is not covered fully by him. There IS a complete listing of all the figures, but he does not tell you how to get their picture for ALL figures. To give credit, he did highlight the importance of taking Tetra's picture but the information about several key personal in Wind Waker being obtainable only in the second playthrough is WRONG. I managed to get all of them in the first playthrough. You can purchase them from Lenzo-no need to wait till your second walkthrough. Lenzo will offer you a Legendary Pictograph during different moon phrases-so just keepy playing the Song of Passing until you get them all. Information on hard to find NPCs and timing to take their pictures are also MIA. Some NPCs will never face you in the face-so how are you going to get that 'full frontal shot' as required? Others like the Kragaroc need to be staying still and not flying the skies for an effective shot to be approved. I learnt these through trial and error or got the missing information from gamefaqs.
