Great guide, great game
If you like help, this is the book to buy. This game doesn't really require alot of help, except for the "secret missions." You may find some things you overlooked, or you may get the most out of the game by using the stratagies presented. Not a bad buy, Well written and detailed!

It was pretty helpful.
This review was helpful to me. I was able to beat the game without it, but after I had already beaten the game, I wanted to get the stradegy guide to find any secrets I missed. It turned out there were THREE stradegy guides, and I could only find the Prima Games one. I'm normally a Brady Games Dan Birlew type of guy, but I couldn't find that one, so I just got this one. Now it told me where all of the blue orb fragments and red orbs and all the other colored orbs in the game I missed. It was fairly descriptive on where they were, and I was able to find them ok. It also gave in depth descriptions on tactics for beating bosses. I had already beaten the bosses, but the second time through the game, the tactics helped me beat them with less fault. The maps were very detailed too. It even had a moves reference card to refer to that you could pull out in case you forgot a move and didn't feel like going through the start menu. Now the 2 reasons I gave it a 4 instead of 5 is because of the fact that it only covered one mode of gameplay, the normal mode, while it hardly said anything about "Legendary Knight" Mode, "Dante Must Die!" Mode, "Easy Automatic" Mode, and "Super Dante" Mode. It also didn't describe the characters to where you could grow to like them in a way that would get you excited to learn more about them through the game which to me, is a MAJOR thing in a stradegy guide. To other people, it might not seem that big, but in a stadegy guide, it's the little things that make me happy. I did learn to respect Dante greatly, but the way they described him in the guide was just sort of tacky. Well, all in all, I liked the guide from Prima and it helped me out a lot. I never got to compare it to Brady Games or Versus Books Guides, but I would recommend this guide to anyone I knew who needed help with the game.

No notta this ones a NO NO!!
I think its clear now that I'm a player's guide freak being that I love them and have one for every game that I own. Anyway in comparison to VERSUS BOOKS and BRADYgames this guide is mediocre to poor.
The guide covers the game okay. Yeah it has all those items and secret missions covered and it has those fantastic 3D maps that tell you where items are located and such but as far as that goes, THE WALKTHROUGH IS DOWN RIGHT HORRIBLE!!
While maps are nice eye candy (yes I like maps just as much as the next person) to look at the walkthrough is not informative enough, and is very disorganized. Again as with VB the guide is too thin. Its like 80 pages long! Not much to get from that. Even if the VB guide was just as thin that one covered EVERYTHING where as this guide DOES NOT!!!
This guide is mainly for those who just want to get down the point and go! It completely leaves out some secrets, and you find yourself asking "What in the hell are they talking about!?"
In other words, I'd check out the guide from VB or BradyGAMES and give this a pass unless you're very desperate to get through the game.
