Just like most strategy guides it leads you step by step through the whole game. It skips unnecessary parts that are obvious like going to a certain room to get to the next part. It explains what you have to do pretty well. It is an attractive book with lots of colors. It spans 238 pages.
The only real complaints I had with the guide are that Nintendo Power could have put more screenshots for the game while going through it step by step. They focused more on huge shots of Samus taking up a whole page (which is really unnecessary). The other complaint is that sometimes they will skip through certaing rooms, which some players might not like.
Overall this is a very good strategy guide. I recommend it for anyone stuck in the game!!
Of course, in saying the above I don't want to insinuate that blind faith in any particular line of products is a good thing, but I do have some things to say about Nintendo's work on this one. As other reviews have pointed out this guide does a good job of guiding one through the game and getting all the goodies. However, I do feel the layout of the guide is a little convoluted. Now that may sound like a criticism of the guide itself yet it is not. Anyone who has ever played Metroid Prime 2 knows that the game's structure (with the presence of a "light" and "dark" world and the constant need to switch between realms to accomplish things) makes the game much more complex than the original. When you (or the author) tries to express this in writing, well, things are going to get chaotic with the presentation of the walk-through regardless. Because of this the few moments where I was confused I really didn't feel were the fault of the author as much as the result of the game itself. I'm sure some people see that as avoiding the issue or flat out giving the author a pass but I think trying to make the few, slightly confusing spots clearer probably would have resulted in even more confusion.Read more ›
When you think of a bog, you might imagine friendly alligators cavorting in the sunshine, trading warm hellos with the locals. Well, that's not what bogs are like at all. Load up on that arm cannon and get ready to blast anything that moves.
The only hitch is that the Spider Guardian fight is not well detailed (although that really can't be helped; nothing can prepare you for the agony of fighting that bastard for the first time!) and his colors are red, BLUE and green, not red, orange and green. Other than that, it's perfect. Get going, Hunter.
