Customer Reviews

It's really a joke to even ask money for it.
R. M. Machut
Prima seriously COPIED & PASTED every bit of information from the original NP guides and condensed them into one confusing guide.

If you are into the Metroid Prime series games than this is the guide for you.

I never got play the first two games and Metroid to me is one of those games that if you want to collect everything the guide is important instead of walking around for hours on end trying to figure it out. You could always use youtube but it's quite annoying to go to the internet all the time and back to the game. I'm playing through Metroid prime's first game. The guide is pretty good but it is a little vague. You also have to read clear which room you need to be in, sometimes it's not the most straight forward. Besides that it's not a waste and has helped all the way through.

They should have made this guide twice as big since I know Metroid Prime 3 has just as many pages as Metroid Prime Trilogy. Like the other reviewer said, the original guides I bet are better but you might be spending more money getting all the 3 guides and guides for the first two games will be hard to get. This will get the job done but yes it's on the vague side but not useless and will get you all the power ups in the game.

Ok, I need to say that I get every official strategy guide that is released with each game I buy. So I was able to compare this one with previous MP guides by Nintendo Power.

I REALLY MISS Nintendo Power doing their own guides..heres why.

Prima seriously COPIED & PASTED every bit of information from the original NP guides and condensed them into one confusing guide. I know this because every pun, phrase, and ERROR can be found perfectly duplicated. If Nintendo didn't allow them to do this, then I could see a lawsuit but who knows?

The MP3 section also copies the original Prima guide perfectly. Which was not very good to begin with anyway.

You may ask about if the new content that was added to MPT is included in the book? Very little, they loosly cover MP1 and MP2 credits and what you can unlock with them. I know its not rocket science but this is why these books are created.

If you want a good guide for each game I would seriously recommend finding the originals. They cover pictured steps as to where to go and are more in depth. Nintendo Power released a guide for MP1 and MP2. You are out of luck if you want an easy to use guide for MP3 since Prima bombed on that as well. For understanding of credits and how to unlock, check out gamefaqs.

The game I bought was to hard to play without some kind of "Instructions" of which it was not included. The game came out last year or two and I couldnot find a game guide any where especially from Nintendo. Lucky for me , I found one here and came at record time,Thanks. The book is pretty cool and it would have been no way in h*ll I could have made it thru the game without it!!!! It takes a little time to get use to the wording and instructions but it didn't take me long to get thru about 40% of the game. I also have a Prima guide for SuperMario Wii and have already finished it with Grandkids.Great Guide!!!!

I bought this guide mainly for the maps, so I didn't have to keep looking them up online.

The maps in this guide are a disappointment though. They don't have the rooms labeled. Just the locations of certain items listed. Then there's the list of where each logbook location is located in the back, but still nowhere to match up the exact rooms unless you know them by heart from the game, or are looking around the map of your game. Huge disappointment.

Then I'm using the walkthrough for # 2. I got confused as hell right in the beginning. I was looking for Luminoth lores. I was looking for the lore "Paradise", because the guide said I'd be able to find it in the events coming up. Well, I scanned where I remembered it was supposed to be before when I played it on the gamecube. It was a different lore. I looked in the back of the guide to make sure it was supposed to be the right lore. The guide said, "Luminoth lore, Paradise, Mining Plaza." I already got the lore located in the Mining Plaza. I looked on the chart again to see if there was a second lore located in the Mining Plaza. Nope. Only one. Which made no sense, cuz it wasn't the right lore.

So I carefully read the walkthrough word for word again. I found out where the mistake I made was.

It said something along the lines of, "make sure you scan the lore on the way out of the energy controller". I was already in that room, and I scanned a lore in there. So I thought I got it. Nope. The guide didn't mention what kind of lore it was supposed to be. What I got was a Luminoth journal entry lore. There was one more hidden in there, which was the paradise lore I was looking for. The guide didn't mention there were two different lores.

The guide was a gift, along with the game. I now have ALL the power-ups, secrets, etc. for the games. This is a MUST-BUY for any Metroid Prime fan that wants to get the ending videos/get through the game without dying!

First off, I agree with most of the other reviewers: If you have the original guides for Metroid Prime 1, 2, & 3, then just use those. If you don't have the old guides, then this is a decent game guide to own. However, all of the information in this book is on the internet in some form or fashion. From text walkthroughs to YouTube video walkthroughs, its out there if you know where to look. I decided to get the book because my computer is in another room...I didn't want to travel from room to room whenever I got stuck on a part of the game. Also, the online text walkthroughs are okay, put they are dull to look at. So, I bought the book to be ready-at-hand and for the good game screen shots and the color graphics.

The only cons that I have, besides the occasional spelling/grammatical errors, are the lack of game art work and the condensed format which can be confusing if you aren't paying attention.
