This guide has all you need to accomplish the best first play-through, but not in the way you would use guides for other RPG games even including the first 2 entries of the trilogy.
As you may already know, Lightning Returns' game play introduces a "real-time" game play. Lightning has 13 days to save the souls of humanity, which is basically the main quests and as many side quests as you could possibly complete. 45 seconds in real life is half an hour in the game. Therefore, the best use of time in this game is to accept multiple side quests while doing main quests if you care to do a best first play-through.
The "walk-through" section of the book actually contains 3 sections: Walk-Through, Main Quests, and Side Quests. The Walk-Through is very short; it's basically an itinerary of what you should do to optimize efficiency. As a result, you have to constantly refer to different sections of the book, and that book, with all its fancy papers and...
The Final Fantasy 13: Lightning Returns official legendary guidebook is well worth the pay. I praise this book for content but mostly quality. The quality of the book is phenomenal; I almost want to get the paperback version as well, just so I don't have to use the legendary edition. The content has almost everything you need from character backgrounds, game lore, quest information, to a great and extremely useful bestiary section; it even contains beautiful pieces of art from the game (it also serves as a nice art book too).The only thing I thought the guide could use was more information in the quest section, particularly pertaining to the main quest section. The guide tells you everything you need to know on how to complete the quests, but it doesn't explain what is going on during the quests very well. Now, this is probably just a personal pet peeve of mine, but I like to have the main scenarios written out in case I haven't completely grasped what is going on during the game. I...
You get all the information on the game, but it will not be straight-forward direction. I started reading the first part of the walk-through, but could not get immediate information on what I wanted right away as I played the game. The front part of the book is good, but since this game times you, I strongly suggest skipping towards the back of the book to the Speed guide section. I died 4 times, because I like to get 100% collectibles, and I simply ran out of days. Had I just gone ahead to this section, I would have gotten the point sooner. You can go online to get quicker information from other players on what schemata and attributes they used against later enemies on the Final Day.
