Almost no content, Nov 5, 2022
In short, this is the worst game "guide" that I have ever purchased. This is why:
* No maps!
* Directions reverse left/right and east/west in several areas.
* Incorrect information about many of Yuri's Fusion levels.
* The Item Descriptions are often vague. Furthermore, information about the Items and Equipment are scattered randomly through the book. Ultimate Armors and the like are in an odd place near the front of the book instead of with the Equipment list. And if you see an item mentioned in the walkthrough, good luck finding it in the lists.
* Directions often neglect to mention the existence of valuable items in treasure chests in an area.
* Very thin spell data. Why aren't there lists of the extra spells you get when Solomon's Map sections are completed?
Overall, this book gives you as much content as would a text-only guide that you can find free all over the net -- an error-riddled guide at that. Don't waste your money.

Was this guide rushed?, Nov 5, 2022
I agree with the other reviews so far. The author tries to explain which directions to move in certain area of the game. First, this isn't very helpful when the author tells you to move west when the west direction doesn't occur until a few rooms later. Next, the author is very confused with directions. Sometimes right and left are mixed up. I think that even if you do not like reading online guides, you'll enjoy it much more than this guide. The pictures in the guide have no relevance whatso ever. OVerall, its just a rushed guide that is lacking in many ways.

Guide or No Guide??, Oct 16, 2023
Like the prior reviews stated if you're thinking of buying this guide I'd agree with thinking again. Yeah sure it gives you the side quest information, and boss and monster statistics but umm Hello what good is a Guide WITHOUT! the maps for each area?? Obviously those whom put together this guide didn't think this game deserved a good guide or didn't think they needed to include maps for who knows what reason. I've found many typos in this book as I've used it, some range from little things to not including item information such as weapons that are located in a certain area. But because of the side quest section I did give this a 2 star rating beyond that its really just not that great, I've seen better FAQ guides online from the private person that what I recieved from the company whom designed this guide.

By far one of the most basic guides i've seen in awhile, Oct 12, 2023
If your thinking of buying this guide, think again. Yes, this guide does contain a "Walkthrough" But you can't get any more basic. For example, they neglected to include any sort of maps! The only thing I found useful in this guide was the sidequests section. Its the only redeeming part of the book which is why I gave it 2 stars instead of 1. Buy this book only if your a person that loves to complete every nook and cranny, and only if your the type of person who refuses to use an online guide. Did Brady just think Shadow Hearts 2 did not deserve a good guide?
