“A must-have companion!”
“I have been a fan of the Piggyback guides ever since I picked up their special edition for Final Fantasy XIII. This particular edition is just as well thought-out as the aforementioned, with beautiful artwork and easy-to-use mapping systems. And you will want it close at hand because Lightning Returns is a beast of a game. While there really is no “right” way to play the game, this guide will ease you into mastering it your own way. Just don’t let the ticking clock distract you. There is plenty of time to fully master the experience once you know how to prioritize your play time.”Amazon Customer Review, 03/02/2014
“This book is a lifesaver”
“Fantastic guide that your fingers will crave: Some might call it ‘cheating,’ but I call this book a lifesaver. With how the game is set-up, this book makes things so much easier. I know where to go, what to do, and how to play. […] This book lays everything out and explains how to go about being successful. Yes, it’s a tad confusing at first, but you eventually catch on and understand its layout. I will admit, that it’s not as easy to follow as the XIII-2 book, but it is still super helpful. Just give the guide a chance and it will grow on you. And if it doesn’t, at least you got a DLC with it, right? Oh and some pretty bookmarks and a map! Aside from being super helpful, the graphics are simply amazing. Everything is super crisp and clean. It’s absolutely gorgeous. And the feel of the book? Ugh, it’s to die for. It’s so elegant and smooth. The cover is excellent. It just begs to be shown off. I currently have it laying on a table as it’s just so elegant looking. I think it’s worth every penny and recommend it to people who could use the extra help. I know I needed it! If anything, it helps remove a lot of frustration.”Amazon Customer Review, 02/19/2014
“The guide has been a tremendous help”
“Easy to use guide: I am always nervous when I pre-order these guides as you never know if they will be easy to use. I was very pleased with this one. […] Since this game is based on a very short time span, and the clock is always ticking, I am not sure anyone can get through his game the first time without some sort of guide. Even with this guide I am finding myself late to tasks, and having to skip some side quests to get caught up. I am not a fan of the clock on this game, but that is a review for the game itself, not the guide. So far the guide has been a tremendous help, in fact without it, I would be too intimidated by this game. The first day I played this without looking at the guide and it was a horrible experience and I was so far behind on goals and tasks I am not sure I would have finished it the first time around. And I am a very experienced gamer.”Amazon Customer Review, 02/17/2014
