The first part of my review will be a comparison between the previous edition of this guide (no DLC content) versus this one. The second part of my review will be this particular guide itself. I apologize if the pictures are a little blurry, I couldn't hold my phone still, and the camera is flaky sometimes.Pros:Tons of quality content, information about the base game and all of the DLC.Information well organized and easy to access.Cons:Pages feel flimsy compared to other guides and previous release of this guide.Color on pictures is awkward (more below).The main reason why I bought this guide was the fact that I liked how well the information was organized. Even though I already had the guide for the base game, I wanted the additional DLC content thoroughly laid out. In terms of the information inside the guide itself, this thing is rock solid.Now to the cons, which are good to be aware of when buying this guide: The pages of the guide feel flimsy. I worry about ripping them when paging through. The previous iteration of the guide had a sort of glossed finish on them, a sort of thin laminate if you will, so it helped guard a little against rips and felt nicer on the fingers. The new iteration of the guide (this one) still has that laminate feel, but it is noticeably less so, and the pages feel slightly thinner, hence my worry of them ripping. The coloring of the pages is also "awkward". Looking past the slightly blurry images I've supplied, it can be observed that the newer guide seems to take the original images and turn the brightness up a bit, such that they don't look as good.
If you listen to my show, All Over Voiceover with Kiff VH, you know how much I love the game The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. STUNNING visuals, engaging story, MINDBLOWING audio production (I mean, the game sounds like autumn), and while I don’t often play RPGs, I can immerse myself in the world and lose 4 hours or just grab a controller and play for 15 minutes. Great action, crafting, monsters, magic, unique environments, thoughtful design… blah blah blah game of the year blah. BUT… I haven’t won a single hand of Gwent.Enter The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Complete Edition Collector’s Edition Guide. This GIGANTIC and stunningly beautiful guide is reminiscent of a D&D’s Dungeonmaster book, with tremendous depth and expansive detail and a complete walkthrough of this vast interactive experience. Filled with in-game images and cut scene art, the guide feels like an animation storyboard, yet manages to inspire and not spoil the game play experience.The guide is hardcover, with a beautiful image of Geralt and Ciri on the cover (since it arrived, we’ve had it on our coffee table, where it belongs). It also includes 2 lithographs of what appears to be concept art of the game, one where Geralt is slaying a griffin, and another with Geralt and the sorceress Yennifer getting ready to cast some spells and kick some butt. With dedicated chapters to all of the downloadable content and a complete Gwent player’s guide (yay!) and a free downloadable version of The Witcher: Wild Hunt eGuide, Prima knocks it out of the Keep with this guide. This is by far the most comprehensive and helpful resources to a game that I’ve ever encountered.From the table of contents, you get a sense that this guide means business.
