Smaller, tighter format aside, I noticed that at least in the Final Fantasy X portion, the text has been copied verbatim from the original in places i. I'd like to see this sort of thing laid out in a separate table. Final Fantasy X-2 quickly followed and was released in 2003. Bradygames is often notorious for having a lot of space in their strategy guides left unused. The images are actually smaller too, when they were not removed entirely.
Gagazet And Floating Ruins - 3. There are some retypes that seem to be aimed at greater clarity - I am not including the new International Version information, just what was already in the original. Online resources live and breathe, and change. Other than that, I think most everything is addressed fairly well. It's laid out just fine but still written in a play-as-you-go fashion. First of all, hats off to Amazon for delivering this guide an entire 4 days before March 18th when the games are available. Since the defeat of Sin, Yuna has joined a group of sphere hunters with Rikku and a mysterious woman named Paine.
Considering how much emphasis is put on mixing for the Dark Aeons it's really surprising that we don't have anything for Rikku's mixes. For the vanilla version, I used Split Infinity's Walkthrough, it's very detailed though you might find it a little overwhelming. If you have the original guides when they were published in 2001 and 2003 respectively you are probably better off with those guides. I don't know about you gu ys, but I'd rather carry a separate guide if the book was going to be any thicker. This is the first book I've bought for a game in a long time, but I plan on getting the Final Fantasy guides with every new game I purchase.
It's a great guide if you're just a casual player and just playing it for a the story line alone, but if you're trying to get everything 100% including trophies even, I highly recommend using the new guide and old guides with it if you have them. The font size is smaller, it's now a single spaced guide and it's in two columns. Much like with the sphere grid, Bradygames tells you to go online to their website. And this is exactly that. All-in-all, it's pretty much what I expected from them.
You are no longer getting what you pay for, you are getting the content but not the ability to read it. The bestiary in the back is exactly the same, however. It will get you from the start of the game all the way to end with aid on enemies and bosses. Some changes to the walkthrough are very present, however. There is no longer a list of objectives and the enemies in each area are named, but no stats are shown. Final Fantasy X-2 also has a total of three endings and the only way to view all three is to earn 100% story completion. I find if I use multiple guides I end up missing stuff.
I also do toy reviews for. If I'm going to pay for a strategy guide I don't want it to send me online. In some ways this is nice because it actually looks very well organized as a result. I could have figured that out myself. Some of the info has been condensed but really the biggest problem is that they decided to omit things they had in there before or really condense it all down.
If that was the case I'd have already gone online. Gamefaqs has a ton of them, and they're usually curated fairly well by user feedback best check the highest-rated ones. I completely recommend this for anyone who needs help or just likes pictures : I got both Final Fantasy X and Final Fantasy X-2 strategy guides when the games first came out 10 plus years ago, and both of those books were twice the size of this strategy guide. It almost feels like newspaper. Where as the original guide was a whopping 352 pages, it's been condensed to around 200 here.
For one, there is no longer a step-by-step objective list like there used to be. If you want all the collectibles and pointers and complete walk through. Both guides are here in their entirety. The old guide ensured that I could do this so I would anticipate that the new one would do the same. I remember reading word for word some boss fights because I was excited to play the game.
As another reviewer said, the material of the pages is like paper and not the higher quality semi gloss of the old guides. You must be super far sighted if you can't read the text and I would recommend reading glasses. From what I can remember most of the information is the same and it is nice to have both guidebooks together. The original Final Fantasy X guide was double spaced and also had sections where there would be enormous screenshots or artwork that sometimes covered up half a page. The section on Final Fantasy X is somewhat short. There is not as much new to Final Fantasy X-2, however. I basically brought this Player's Guide off Amazon for 2 reasons: 1: No store in my city has this Player's Guide which I found strange to say the least cause usually when a new Final Fantasy game comes out even if it's a remake of an older one for a different gaming system.
