Book Description

22 Aug 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stuck! Now you're not 24 July 2003
By A Customer
this guide does exatly what it says on the can it helps you in Sunshine. But it does this very well with 3d maps of the levels and will help yopu finish the game in no time at all.
Whats worse than getting frustrated at something you cant do? that is no fun but this guide will solve all those problems.
Also, if you only want to use it when you get stuck then it is easy to find wheree you are and then get the answer and put the book back and pick it up again further on in the game

4.0 out of 5 stars SPOILER ZONE!!! 2 May 2003
Super Mario Sunshine is undoubtably one of the best games so far on Gamecube (Ninty's next-gen console), but in my opinion it just doesn't have the replayability that made Super Mario 64 so great. Yes, the idea is so innovative that only Shigero Miyamoto could have dreamed it up, but once you've finished the game, it's all over. As far as I could say, there is no extras at all.
Well, might as well get the job finished properly, then. This guide can help you to get all 120 stars, so you'll feel that there is no need for any extra modes, as you've already got the most out of the classic game.
Although, I have to say, there is no cheats for the game. This would give the game a bit more fun, e.g. big heads, unlimited water.
Despite this, the guide is a great help and is the best you can buy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better and is a little cheaper than all the other guides! 22 Sep 2002
By S. Rhodes - Published on
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!
The Good
+Beautiful Maps
+Great ORGANIZED walkthrough
+All 120 shines revealed!
+Nice Screens and strategy
The Bad
-Boss strategies lack
-Doesn't really cover too many of the cheap tricks

3.0 out of 5 stars Well... 16 Jan 2003
A Kid's Review - Published on
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.

A Kid's Review - Published on
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.)

3.0 out of 5 stars Good Book, But Not Strategy Wise 18 Feb 2004
By Michael Kerner - Published on
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.
