why this is such i good guide book, Jul 26, 2023
I love this guide book i did get confused thats only cuz i got excited and skiped over. I remember when i first played the game i couldn't do anything i was so confused so my granny got me the guide i was unconfused.I will now rate each part of the book.
Weapons,items,and materia list 5
Character guides at the front of the book 5
Secerets in the back 3
and Boss's 4 on some 5 on others
Secerts are probably the lowest because it's not to clear on how to get a gold chocobo nobody is.
and in case your still confused here it is
2 great chocobos rank A 1 male 1 female
mate (with carob nut) them until u get a blue and a green then relase them (greens are female blues are males)
they need to be rank A to it's very easy now with the green on long because the water won't effect him!
when they both rank A mate them (with carob nut)to get a black chocobo u can now get 2 materia caves 1 on watuia (can't spell it sorry) and 1 above corel
now got to icicle inn and catch for and send them to your stables u need a wonderful chocobo thats not the same gender as the black chocobo race the to rank A mate them (with zeio nut) and u have a gold chocobo can now get knights of the round!!!!
and if u wanna take it to the next level to get a chocobo not even mentioned in the game?!?! if u do remate your black and wonderful unti u get the oppostie gender of the other gold chocobo feed each 1 200 slykis or until it says no imporovement they have to be completly maxed out mate them (with zeio nut)
it may take a couple of tries but you will get a white chocobo
i think but i'm not sure but the guy that sells everything in mideel has a white chocobo anyway this chocobo can fly heal cross mountions and rivers heals you and submerges under water this is the ultimate chocobo!

Could be better, Jan 25, 2023
Being one of if not the best rpg in history it has alot of secrets that this book does not mention.
I suggest going online as well as have the book.
Or if you have a copy of an old ff7 mag that came out the same time as the game it will make finding EVERYTHING much easier.

the worst guide book i ever bought, Dec 8, 2022
i own several guidebooks, most of them being FF guidebooks. This one is by far the worst i ever bought. the text is full of typos and grammar errors and much of the information is confusing because it is inaccurate. I had already beat FF7 several times and then i bought this guide to see if it would tell me anything more. Nope! It sucks. I tried to beat it following the guide and i was actually confused! And i'd already beat the game! That says something awful. The only thing that was even useful were the maps and the bestiary. I definitely would not reccommend spending money on this item.

Indulge and Be Wary, Sep 26, 2023
The BradyGAMES Official FF7 Guide can help you out in a tight spot, with its detailed area maps and instructions. It offers coverage on the game's secrets, sidequests, skills, gameplay, and spells.
However, the guide is hampered by several key flaws, including misinformation(Final Attack materia through chocobo races?) grammar errors(Ranch summon materia?) and major plot spoilers (You know who does you know what to you know who at the end of Disc 1?). Read the guide if you're lost, but PLEASE don't turn to pages 124-125 until you pass Disc 1 (MAJOR PLOT SPOILER).
Good luck with your reading!
