In spite of its occasionally clumsy language and formatting, Temple Run 2 Game Guide proves to be useful for lovers of the second installment of the popular cross-platform, never-ending running game. This guide is especially appealing for beginners.
Useful, applicable tips: The 29-page Temple Run 2 Game Guide includes many practical tips and strategies for improving your game performance, though it does require that you apply them creatively.
Comprehensive: The guide does a good job at covering all aspects of the game, from character selection and basic game mechanics to more advanced tricks and strategies for dealing with the harder levels. You'll have to read it from start to finish to fully get it, though.
Laggy built-in reading app: Rather than coming as a PDF, this guide has its own integrated reading app. Unfortunately, it lacks the ability to increase the font size -- zooming in reduces the font quality considerably -- and quickly flip through pages. Overall, it feels unwieldy.
Navigation problems: The page preview bar at the bottom of the page just repeats the same icon, rather than providing a page number, which makes flipping through pages more difficult than it should be.
Unpolished: While you do understand what the author is saying, the guide feels like it has not been edited. Expect some awkward sentences and grammatical errors. Also, more bullet points and images could have been used to better convey the information in some sections, especially the tips at the end of the book.
Temple Run 2 Game Guide won't impress you, but remains worthwhile if you're a fan of the game. You'll find it especially useful if you're just getting started. If you're a pro, you already know what's written in this guide.
