Should this be played with a guide?

8 posts in this topic

A guide can spoil things for you however what I did when playing the Class Trials was to have a guide next to me, I would pick my answer then if it was wrong I would reload my game and look at the guide for the right answer. That way I would only look at one answer at a time and it wouldn’t spoil anything for me.

The first has no missables that I can remember. When it comes to trials you can save at every phase and reload once you know the right answer to ensure a perfect trial. At most you might want to look up everyone's favourite places/answers for school mode to ensure you only have to go through it the minimum amount of times. Ruining the trials by knowing the answers in advance takes away a huge part of the enjoyment of the game.

 

The second has more things you might want to use a guide for to save on wasted time. Namely getting each pet and the hidden monokuma. Island mode is identical to school mode. There's also magical girl monomi which is more of a grind than anything else. Do the same thing for the trials: Save at each phase, do it yourself then reload when you know the answer. This way you can still enjoy it.

No, play it blind. Once you finish the game, use a guide to get all the trophies if you want. Or you could use a guide free of spoilers to pass the investigations and trials without much trouble. But I must insist: play it blind, it's the best experience.

I played both stories without a guide. I then went back in using chapter select and the skip button to clean up the few missable trophies in the main stories. Don't spoil the stories for yourself by using a guide for the main games.

 

I would recommend a guide for School and Island modes respectively, just so you know what the hell is going on really, and to be able to max out the friendship links efficiently, as has been said above.

If this is your first time playing the game... Like other visual novel games, I suggest that you stay away from the guide while playing the story mode so that you could enjoy the despair experience esp. for the first game - THH. The second game has a collectible trophy though so if you are not willing to replay entire chapters and want to finish it quickly, you can check a guide for the collectibles - you would probably be spoiled though. The only downside I see in playing blindly is you would probably be unsure what to do next when investigating(well I end up checking all rooms everytime) and would end up doing some trial and error in Class Trial(on the meat bone? meat on the bone? bone on the meat? <_<)

 

After clearing the story mode. Feel free to use guide as much as you want to clean up stuffs asap(esp. in Dangan 2)

Wow - lots of different views on this. I think I'll try initially without a guide, and if it feels that the game is being hurt, I'll pick one up.

 

Thanks for the feedback.
