About 66% of this guide deals with the story mode. This involves a checklist of items for each level, as well as hints and tips on completing them successfully.
The remainder handles the level creation tools, which is really where the replay value of LittleBigPlanet is going to be. Once you've read this, you'll be able to create your own level with relative ease.
Of course, LittleBigPlanet itself has tutorials for most of the items you can use to build levels, but having it in one place for future review is timeless.
So, all-in-all, a very solid book.
The minor issues I mentioned in my review title are solely that:
a) There's no overview map of the story levels. Granted, these levels are rather large, but I'd still like to see a couple of pages near the beginning, with the full maps.
b) A comprehensive checklist of items. In other words, here's all of the stickers, and where you can find them. Etcetera.
I'm also not seeing a listing of items you receive after doing the tutorials.
I can't remove an entire star because of these two minor issues, so 4.5 stars is rounded to 5.
You'll use most of the guide for 100% completion in story mode, once, and refer to the rest for as long as the level creation functionality keeps your interest.
It even has quite a few pages on how to build things. Very handy indeed.
The only thing that bothered me was the fact that the goodies in the guide are listed aphabetically, and thus, not in the same order as in the game. Checking which goodies you haven't found is a bit of a drag because of that.
But other than that, this guide totally rules. At the price of less than fourteen dollars, it's a steal.
