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.

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.

Game needs better controls, but the guide is very good. I highly recommend this guide.

This book is very helpful! A review by Princess Daisy March 7 2005
A Kid's Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This game is pretty hard, and I really had a hard time figuring it out, but this book really, really helped me! If you have this game, then you'll definintely need this book! This game is great! (Too bad Daisy isn't in it. It'd be better that way.)
Very Useful Guide Sept. 13 2012
By The Duck of Indeed - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This guide is super useful. It gives helpful advice for getting the Shine Sprites and also says what episode of each world is the best for getting 100 coins. There is also a useful map for each area, showing where all the Blue Cons are, plus other things like extra lives, different nozzles, and Yoshi eggs. And at the end of the guide, there are descriptions of how to get every Blue Coin, numbered to correspond to the maps. This guide makes it much easier to get 100% in the game, and I would recommend getting this guide if that is your goal. My one complaint is that sometimes the map seems to point to the wrong location. For example, a Blue Coin found on the beach of Gelato Beach is not quite where it shows on the map, which caused me a bit of trouble. (It was coin number 11, I believe. It's actually on the other side of that walkway.) Other than that, this guide is great.
