Prima's Metroid Prime 3: Corruption guide is a handy tool for conquering Nintendo's latest masterpiece. It's an all around good guide full of great tips and tricks to help you survive the perils of your adventure.

The guide begins with a nice short sweet introduction, and will then introduce you to the characters. It'll then jump into the basic controls as well as telling you about the various pick ups and power ups you'll get throughout your adventure and how to utilize them. There's also a small section dedicated to the credits, but there's more on that later on in the guide.

The guide waste no time getting you to the walkthrough which is a good walkthrough overall. There are times when it tells you what's going on, but unlike some of their previous guides, it does get to the point faster, and provide a lot more detail. The screenshots are crystal clear and throughout the walkthrough it'll call out to you tips and words of caution in green and red boxes respectably. It also calls out little notes in yellow boxes. Another great thing about the walkthrough is simply that it tells you when you have a chance to get some credits and friend vouchers. It's almost perfect. Another great thing that the guide does is inform you of optional things to do in a light green box so that you'll know its not something you'll have to do, but something you might want to do. Following these tips can usually net you an energy tank, missile expansion or credits.

The boss strategies presented are also very detailed and well done. Giving you all the basic things you need. Providing you with a good offensive strategy and telling you how to avoid some of the bosses more nastier attacks.

The maps in the walkthrough are pulled straight from the game, but that's alright.

Metroid Prime 3: Corruption was a fantastic Wii title. It contained a wonderful universe to explore and an innovative control scheme that feels comfortable. The bar was raised a little higher for the author of the strategy game. I'm pleased to see that David Knight met the bar, and exceeded.

PROS

+ It has an outstanding overall appearance and design.
+ It is thorough and presents an easy strategy to collect 100% on.
+ The boss strategies are thorough.
+ It contains all item locations
+ The maps are beautiful, have great keys and are easy to follow.

CONS

- The appendices don't contain enough information, and are tad bit confusing.
- The scan appendix has the scans in order of appearance, but not in the same order the game has them in (alphabetical) making you do a bit more searching.
- Not enough little tricks and tips, and no Hyper difficulty tips.

APPEARANCE - A

The guide itself looks fantastic. The cover has a wonderful shine and texture. The overall design of the guide is beautiful, and matches the game very well. The maps also look wonderful.

STRATEGY - A-

The strategy is wonderful and actually tells you how to obtain 100% through the game. The Notes and Item boxes are great, and it divides each section for you to follow easily. The boss strategies are great, but they don't really have the small tricks and tips that make them so much easier. There aren't any tips for Hyper difficulty.

APPENDICES, CONTROLS AND CONTENTS - B

The table of contents are clear and well divided. The controls are thorough and teach well.

Its a really complete step by step guide including ALL screens of the full path to get this game finished with all possible credits. It's AMAZING. No way to get lost in this game using this book. It's like a person who has already finished that game showing you all the solutions for this puzzle.

I haven't got in the need to use this guide as much as I thought, which is good, but in some parts of the game it was really useful. The presentation is amazing and the art in it is worth the price of the guide.

this strategy guide does exactly what it is supposed to do. I got 100% the first time through the game. Its really a must if you want to complete the game fully and Prima has never let me down. The guide is very straight forward. Worth the money.

I was devastated when I found out that Nintendo Power had quit doing strategy guides. But Prima must've learned their lesson from the abomination that was the Prime and Fusion combo guide. This guide is very good, much like the Brady Games Prime 1 guide, only it lists logbook entries at the beginning of each section as well as items, which sadly the BG Prime 1 guide only did the items. Although that's still not as good as having the entries in the very first rooms where you can scan them in the walkthrough like in the Echoes NP guide, it's still very good, and all in all this is a worthy guide for Corruption.

I been playing games on all platforms since the nes days. So i think i'm an old gamer but metroid has been one my favorite nintendo series and if you want to find 100% on any metroid game i suggest a game guide. Most of the metroid guides are done pretty well been few with missing info but this one has some mistakes like tells you to go right to an area when it's left and areas they say to go next don't match with the game map then there's the vouchers that's where a lot the mistakes are very misleading on how to get i say 25% of the vouchers. But it's still not to terribly bad just look for the area where the guide tells you to go and click on the in game map. Nintendo decided not to do a strategy guide for this game why who knows. There previous one's were done well. So you live with the mistakes since this only guide on this game or go to gamefaqs or some other online site or figure out on your own.
