Book Description

Aug. 22 2002 Brady Games
Super Mario Sunshine is a 3D action/adventure game for Nintendo GameCube. The game combines classic Mario gameplay with intricate new moves and surprises. The action takes place in a beautiful island, inhabited by friendly locales. Mario and Peach discover upon arrival, disturbing scribble marks covering walls throughout the island. As fate has it, the character responsible for the markings has disguised himself as Mario. Now, Mario, armed with a new water-pumping backpack, must set out to clean up the tainted walls and reveal the true villain. Players will explore the big world, collecting items as they encounter numerous obstacles and enemies. The game sports beautiful graphics and character design. Mario, himself, is more detailed than ever, and has an advanced facial animation system. Other new special effects include real-time lighting effects and reflections. Not final cover.

If you want a guide to Super Mario Sunshine, this isn't a bad buy. It goes more into the game basics than most other guides, and the walkthrough gives me more info than some of the others did (though I still think that the Nintendo Power is the best but sadly Amazon doesn' have it).
The guide is more organized and easy to read and actually helps you get through the game. The maps are detailed and actually point out where all the items are, they give you info on all the FLUDDs and such.
The walkthrough has Crystal Clear screenshots. To most people you may think this guide can't be good becasue you're paying only [money], but its better than some of the others out there, and because its cheaper makes it more of a bargain!

I went over to play at my friend's house, and since he has a Gamecube we played Super Mario Sunshine. He also had this guide to the game. We flipped through it together, and I looked around at it and it was a great guide. It had detailed maps showing where shines were and blue coins. You name it, this guide has it. However, when I got Super Mario Sunshine, I just looked aroung for walkthroughs on the internet and I found some at various gaming websites. They all had information on where to find shines, how to get them, and blue coins. Not that this isn't a great guide, but I prefer things for free ... However, if someone is always on your home computer or you simply don't have the time to get online, this guide is for you.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good Book, But Not Strategy Wise Feb. 18 2004
Format:Paperback
Arguably, when these third-party companies try to make very good strategy guides for video games, they just really need to be improved little by little everytime. Arguably, it sometimes must be a better option to buy it directly from the company that conjured the game. With Brady Books issuing of their strategy guide to Super Mario Sunshine, it does showcase some great detail on some of the most difficult courses, but it just doesn't seem to showcase enough particularly on the harder levels, and the secret courses. I only suggest that you get this, if you can't find any other strategy guide. Otherwise, get the actualy strategy guide that officially Nintendo made for Super Mario Sunshine.
