For most games you'd think that you don't want to waste your money on a stadegy guide, but that isn't the case for this game. It is very easy to get lost in the repetative looking levels and you can miss important items. This gives you everthing you need to know. There hasn't been a guide that has helped me out this much since the one from Final Fantasy X.

Three Whips Are Better Than One
While Lament of Innocence is a game where the puzzles and bosses aren't particularly hard to figure out, it is comforting to have a guide in hand, if for no other reason than to have useful information out where you can see it. And for me, there are always a couple of occasions where I'm staring at the screen wondering what the point is behind a particular circumstance, and a guide keeps me from going of on a tangent.
This is a sensibly written guide that takes the player through a possible line of play which assures that the player will see all the sights, get all the items, and stand a reasonable change of defeating all the bosses. It doesn't spend a lot of time on lavish illustration or unnecessary detail either. Personally, I prefer this style. There has been a trend towards 300 page guides that are harder to use than the game is to play. That isn't the case here.
It's arguable that Lament doesn't really need a guide, but I find that a good guide reduces the frustration level and enhances overall enjoyment. This effort by Laura Parkinson does exactly that. Especially for someone who is still getting used to the genre.
