As many of you who have played the game know, the mapping system is pretty poor. What I was really looking for was a map of each town that showed where everything is located. Specifically I wanted a graphical map, with the name of each store located on the map. This guide does not have that. It does list the stores in a table that are in each town but it doesn't tell you where they are.
There are some good tips, but it leaves a lot up to mystery, I'm sure in the spirit of discovering things for yourself. For example, basic things like how do you have a child in the game? It does not tell you that you need to get a certain expression, or where to get the expression from. It does tell you that you can have children but doesn't tell you how. Similarly, there are all these tricks you can teach your dog but there is no section on where to get all of these. On this note, it talks about "dive" spots to find treasure underwater, but doesn't tell you how to actually dive. I still haven't figured that out.
Another problem is the layout of the book. If you are wanting to go through and find all of the demon doors, you have to go town by town looking if the book mentions a door or not, there is no demon door section. It would be nice to have a separate section for this so you could perhaps check them off. Similarly no silver key section, etc.
I think the guide has some good things, but is really disappointing to me. I have just found it really hard to navigate the book, and found vital information missing that I end up having to search the internet for. I suggest saving your money and just reading FAQ's on the internet for your game questions.
However, the one feature I keep picking up this book for is the one feature it's missing. Maps. In my review of the game I mentioned the poor quality of the mapping. The book doesn't help. It gives you the hidden stuff, which is nice, but it doesn't give you the "meat-and-potatoes" of the game, such as the stores, the houses, the things you can buy...
The book does detail the quests pretty clearly. So if you have no clue on how to follow a dotted line on the screen to your various objectives, then I guess this book will help you.
If you're shooting for 100% completion then you'll really benefit from this book. Unfortunately I think the game will bore you before you reach that point, and it definitely won't help you in the day-to-day playing of the game.
However I did not buy the guide for the story missions I bought it to help collect the randome weapons and items throughout Fable 2's world. But it fails even worse in this category. This is by far the worst guide I have ever purchased. If you are looking for a guide that shows all the locations of items in the game world look elsewhere.
This guide attempts to show where to go but is inaccurate for the majority of the time. Also the items you pick up dont match with the ones in the book so you don't know if you opened the correct chest for example because not only is the location off but the items in the book dont even match half the chests in the area. I have also been to areas where they have completley left out items that I happened to find by accident for example the silver key found in bowerstone market behind the pub. And there are many others I cannot find due to this poor guide.
Bottom line SAVE YOUR MONEY. Don't buy this trash it is a complete waste of money and I want my money back. If I had the option to give this guide a -5 I would have.
However, it doesn't list where each item/weapon can be found or bought.
The maps are also somewhat inaccurate. The illustration doesn't always match the map screen in the game. It also gets wrong the number of keys and gargoyles found in each zone; the region screen in the game lists more than what is shown in the guide book.
Overall, a decent resource if you want to know what consequence your actions will have, but you will need to look elsewhere if you're looking to find every item available.
11/5/08 - Edited to Add: The guide may not be wrong in the counts of keys and gargoyles. Some regions have "dungeons". In the game, when you enter a "dungeon", the map page shows the region and therefore the key/gargoyle counts are the combined total for the region and "dungeon".
The guide book keeps a separate page for each of these "dungeons". The key/gargoyle counts are then divided amongst the pages for the region and its "dungeons".
The description of the dungeons does not always indicate which region it belongs to because the map section of the guidebook merely lists every region and "dungeon" in alphabetical order.
