A table of Events, that features exactly the same information the game tells you about those events, no tips on actually beating them.
A table of the Challenges, again featuring only the same information as the game menu, with no tips on how to complete them.
A list of the effects of special moves, which are already explained by the game once unlocked.
A third of a page redundantly explaining how to scan an amiibo figure, with no information whatsoever on how to actually train them.
A map of the Smash Run stage, which is already mapped in-game.
Minimal explanations of how game modes work, on par with the Tips the game already offers players upon playing them.
"Strategies" that are either so simple a beginner would already know them, or so vague they can only be blind guesses.
Lists of stages, explaining basics such as terrain features that players would understand upon playing them once.
etc., etc., etc.
I expected that there would be some ideas that were already familiar to me, but this is absolutely insulting. And especially ridiculous when you consider that there are free guides all over the internet that contain all the information this guide has to offer. Even if the game hadn't been so eager to tell me everything, I could have found the entire contents of this book online in a fan-made guide.
Each and every time I opened the guide hoping for a useful tip or explanation, I was disappointed. I may as well have thrown my money out a window for all the good this book has done.
If this is at all indicative of the way Prima puts together a strategy guide, I definitely won't be buying one from them again. I urge anyone who is in need of a guide themselves to either find another company or just look online for the information you need.
