Rated 3.5 out of 5★ by 2reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5 The product meet all my expectations, then why the low rating? When I ordered this guide I was told shipping was 7 to 10 days. In all past orders that was the case, but not this time. This one took two weeks! The saving from ordering through WalMart were not justified by the long wait to receive the product. Please endeavor to meet your commitments in the future. 10/25/2012
Rated 4 out of 5★ by NovaJoe79 Very good guide. Dragons Dogmas is one of those open world type games where there is so much exploring and loot collecting to do that it is easy to overlook many of the games locales and treasure chests on your initial and sometimes sequential playthroughs if you don't know where to look. This guide will help those who are seeking to uncover every location and treasure chest this game has to offer.Pros:The materials used to make this book are very high quality. It isn't a hard back, but the cover itself is made of very heavy card stock (if that is the right word). The inner pages are of very good quality paper. The ink and coloring are wonderful. The book alone is wonderful to look at.The guide has wonderful colored illustrations of ever single character, creature, locale you will come across in the game.The item list, weapon list, armor list, beastiary, etc all contain a good amount of information to help those seeking to see what they have missed.The maps that I have looked at so far (haven't looked at all of them yet) are very nicely detailed with locations marked to show where that elusive treasure chest is hidden.Cons:I only have a couple real cons with the guide. First the table of contents is very lacking. It gives general details regarding subjects such as, main missions, post game quests, etc. The problem is that it doesn't go into any real detail. For example, it will say Post Game Quests page 192, but doesn't list the quests so that you can turn to the exact page. It simply tells you to start on page 192 and thumb through until you find the quest your looking for. This wouldn't be a problem if there wasn't such a large assortment of quests. When your in a hurry to find what your looking for this can be an issue as it can take some time to find the exact page with your mission listed. The last problem I have with the guide is that there is no index in the back. For instance I was looking for information on the items you get from a certain creature in the game when you beat him online. I went to Beastiary to look up the creature, but the items you get from him weren't listed there. I basically had to page through the book until I came upon the information I was looking for. If an index had been provided I would have had a list of every page this certain creature was mentioned on in the book thus saving me a large amount of time.In conclusion, I have to say that I am very happy with this guide despite the couple of cons I mentioned above. The guide contains all the info you will need to get the most out of your playthrough of Dragons Dogma. You just have to be willing to hunt for it. Bring some bookmarks with you to help you out and you won't have any problems. Well worth the money. I'm very glad I made the purchase. 01/22/2013
