The Holy Terror
This strategy guide, nay, strategy tome, is absolutely GORGEOUS. It has pretty much all of the information you could possibly want or need for the game with all of the appropriate tables, maps, and pictures. You also get a code with this edition for an interactive map that tells you where everything is, and it comes with a fold-out hard copy as well.

I love strategy guides and art books more for the collectible factor, and I enjoy the ability to flip through them at any time and remember the fun

The definitive guide to the greatest time suck of the 21st century.

Without the help of this book, I could never have achieved my current position of leading supplier of used buckets, tankards, and ruined books in the Gulf Coast region.

Let it not be said that I did not read a single book this week! What can I say? I am halfway through several other books that just aren't doing it for me, I got a shiny new copy of this from work (thank you loser degenerates who stole the other copies, thus forcing us to buy more - stealing from the library, get a life!), and I've had a real hankering to play this again. So I read this. Or at least most of it, because it's really thick with things that are kind of silly; there are pages & pa ...more

This Collector’s Edition of the Skyrim Game Guide is, just as the game itself, horrendously, amazingly, and ridiculously extensive. The content in Skyrim is pretty much never-ending, as is this guide, which touches upon every single piece of gaming experience that is to be found within the game.

This guide contains a chapter on general training, the inventory, a bestiary of Skyrim, details on every available quest (starting with the main quest, and those of the factions, followed by side quests,

An excellent day one companion for Skyrim users across all platforms, and collectors of video game guides or books.

The Prima Skyrim guide is another sweet example of one of the most useful strategy guides. Maps are some of the most detailed and useful since Oblivion, or any game.

Writing is crisp and clear, with even typesetting. Design is excellent, with noteworthy weapon and ingredient charts for various skills as well as faction descriptions.

No index of side missions has always been a glaring

I really liked this book by David Hodgson. It is a book version of Elder Scrolls V Skyrim. I thought the Game/Book. It begins as a character on a prison cart on the way to an imperial camp when you are threatened to get your head chopped off, when the camp gets raided by a giant dragon. As the game/Book You kill a dragon and absorb its sole and find out that you are something called dragonborn which gives you special dragon like like abilities.

An essential guide for the Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. I normally avoid game guides, but Skyrim is such a massive game, some sort of reference is needed in order to unlock some parts of the game that are not immediately apparent. It also provides you with an accessible guide to character creation and potion / enchantment making. Its most useful feature, however, is the detailed atlas and dungeon guide which allows you to quickly cross-reference locations discovered in the game.

The rating is for the guide, not the game. This is one of the worst game guides ever produced. Horrible formatting, multiple errors, spoilers galore. Really, really bad. Do not buy.

Use this instead.

The game though? Have mercy. Such an addiction.

This is an absolute must-have for the Skyrim completionist. It's also a perfect example of a guide done right: As a reference book. Full index, massive ToC, spoiler warnings before every section and game world breakdowns by area. Gorgeous book with highest quality content!

Ha! Seriously, this book is on Goodreads? Well, it deserves to be in my My Books section as well, then. Very helpful guide, with step-by-step walkthroughs for when you get stuck and lists of followers/ingredients/materials et cetera for the truly neurotic organized nerds (such as myself).

The problem here is that my skill at the game does not match my interest in being good at the game. Alas! Playing (and reading) anyway. :) As far as game guides go, it's enormous, very helpful, and exceptionally pretty!
Annabelle Peterson
Amazing Book that gives you details of all the different quests and things to do, things to collect, and different sights to see. One of the best guides for the best game of the year!

So, my PS3 died tonight. Among other things, this means that my Skyrim game of 100+ hours is gone. I'll likely never play Skyrim again, but if I did, I would surely consult this fine strategy guide.

Beautiful content and cover. In-depth contents which is much more impressive than online guides.
p/s: Still using this.

A few minor errors scattered throughout the text only marginally diminished the usefulness of this wonderful guide.

This guide is great for any adventurer to find there way around Skyrim faster than a whirlwind sprint. I highly recommend it for all dragonborn.
