For those who want it ALL!
“With a game of this scale and complexity, we felt that it was essential to offer a detailed travel companion to our players. When the time came to start work on the guide, the choice of partner was obvious. Piggyback has been publishing guides on the Final Fantasy series for over ten years, and their level of expertise and understanding of our games is peerless. Collaborating closely with the team, Piggyback has created a book that I’m pleased to present to you here. This is the ultimate guide, with everything you could possibly wish for: from a step-by-step walkthrough to an all-encompassing Tour Guide, from side quests to advanced strategy and analysis, from exhaustive inventory and bestiary lists to puzzle solutions.”

“The essential companion”
“I own many different strategy guides for a wide range of different games and I have to say, this one ranks among the best. The book screams quality with a padded hardcover and its high quality, crisply printed pages all bound well. I entered a complete newcomer to the XIII series of Final Fantasy and this book (in companionship with the game) covered all my questions and fears about the game before setting off on my quest. Furthermore, the spoiler-proof design of the content is a welcome change and although you may be flicking between pages (if you wanted to find all the collectibles in an area on your first visit) this is not cumbersome at all as two ribbon bookmarks have been provided inside making navigation extremely easy. […] This guide not only helped me come to terms with the story and mechanics of the game but also made me want to continue playing constantly. Every step is well organised for your quest offering genuinely helpful suggestions and tips along the way, which makes for a companion guide that complements the game perfectly. Must Buy!”Amazon Customer Review 01/08/2014
“Piggyback does it again”
“I’ve become quite the avid fan of Piggyback. All the strategy guides that I bought that were made by them haven’t disappointed me and I’m very happy to say that the Final Fantasy XIII-2: Complete Official Guide Collector’s Edition is no different […]. To wrap this up, the Final Fantasy XIII-2: Complete Official Guide Collector’s Edition is quite frankly amazing and should be purchased if you haven’t already bought it yet.”Amazon Customer Review 02/10/2012
“A Work of Art”
“I have not yet spent a great deal of time, roughly 3 hours, playing the game with this guide, but it has so far impressed me more than the game itself. First, the guide is divided into separate sections, each with a different amount of spoilers. If you want a simple guide to get you through the game quickly with little spoilers, this is it. If you want a guide with a good balance between completion and simplicity, this is it. And if you want a guide that goes into great detail about every aspect of the game, this is also it. And those are just the different parts of the walkthrough! The guide also includes item, fragment, and trophy checklists, as well as an in depth bestiary. Aesthetically, the guide also succeeds. The collector’s edition is a plain, white padded hardcover with the logo of the game. Absolutely beautiful. Every page of the guide is also filled with high quality screenshots from the game. The collector’s edition also has an extras portion with interviews with key staff from the game. In short, this is an amazing guide which could also easily serve as an artbook if you chose to use it as such. I for one will display it proudly.”Amazon Customer Review 01/31/2012
