I wish more game guides were done as well as this

It has both progressive hints (with the real spoilers upside-down, no less) and a walkthrough written in a sort of short story format, and some nice samples of storyboard art and cool stuff like that. Even the brief character sketches are amusing -- most of them contain puns that you understand after you've played the game.My only complaint was that the game itself had a few really weird and arbitrary puzzles. I loved the look, and the characters, and the cut scenes, but I don't see how you could possibly solve the game without either the hints, or randomly trying every permutation of actions.

I'm in love with Manny ... and his guide!

The game's great and this helpful strategy guide only enhances the enjoyment of your trip to the 9th Underworld ... the only thing I'm going to hate is the end of the line ... but next time I'm going to try to play WITHOUT the guide, and see how much I remember from my first trip! The game and its guide are a must for anyone - even someone who's not particularly into computer games, like myself. Bravo! (PS - Any you guys out there anything like Manny????)

Awesome but challenging game!

When I first got this game, I was really stuck.When I got the game- guide I succesfully beat the game.

A guide that gives as much or as little help when required.

Make no bones about it Prima's strategy guide for Grim Fandango written by Jo Ashburn proved to be the ideal solution for this almost (but not quite) lazy gamer! I love long, involved and challenging games but I hate getting stuck for too long and here is a guide that gives as much (or as little help) as required. The system of tiered answer that become more specific the stupider you are (and I can be very stupid sometimes!) is not a new idea but the way these clues and hints are set out is truly excellent. They give you enough information to avoid frustration whilst retaining the game's essential challenge. Here is a strategy guide that has been produced by someone who obviously loves the game and it is beautifully crafted. It also contains a narrative account of Manny's exploits in the Land of the Dead, some full colour design sketches and the diary of Grim Fandango's creator Tim Schafer. It truly enhanced my enjoyment of a wonderful game which is the best compliment I can give to the author.

Very Helpfull

The Official Strategy Guide of Grim Fandango is a very helpfull rescource. I've beat the game, it was awesome. The strategy guide helped a lot. Go buy the book.
