There are some games that pretty much play themselves. As far as primary objectives go, Beyond Good and Evil is one of them. The game is good, but the puzzles are relatively uncomplicated for a stealth based game, and fighting is just as straightforward. In this context, it's fair to ask what purpose a strategy guide serves. Sarcasm aside, the top answer has to be that it is a cool souvenir.
Well, there are some other things. The walkthrough will get you photos of all the creatures needed for the subquest, and that is an important source of early game cash. Since there aren't dependable sources of income that is a valuable service. Ditto for making sure you find all the pearls lying about. But, for the most part, this is a well-written, intelligent guide for a game that doesn't need one.
Oddly enough, this is one of the best practical guides I've seen this year. It sticks to providing a clear, timely walkthrough with a minimum of fluff, fan service shots of Jade, or extended biographies of momentary characters. The big, overdone 300 page monstrosities that pass for strategy guides should only be this good. Whether you want this guide will depend on if you really want to accomplish everything there is to accomplish. If you do, then this guide really will help you track down those last elusive clues.
