With all the hype around New Super Mario Brothers Wii for the Nintendo Wii, there is so much excitement awaiting in the wings to see the delightful Plumber from Nintendo deliver in a fun & loving adventure. But, where there is a new Mario game, there is also a new strategy guide awaiting for Mario fans to help them along the way. The new startegy guide for New Super Mario Brother Wii, is mostly a helpful guide that clearly displays the maps for all of the challenging levels throughout the Mushroom kingdom, and gives you good tidbits on how to defeat Bowser and his alliances from his Koopa Kids like Roy and Ludwig, to unlocking new paths to helping you accumulate Star Coins throught each level. My one big gripe is that I wish the guide could've brought up a little more detail on how some of the controls for the game work, as was in the past with previous strategy guides on Mario games. While it is sad that Nintendo has made the decision to stop making strategy guides of their own, and letting Prima handle them, what they made to help you out in New Super Mario Brother Wii, is mostly a helpful guide to save Princess Toadstool (a.k.a. Princess Peach) from the clutches of evil. If you have the game, I absolutely recommend you own the guide too.Price: BMaps: B+Tips: B 1/2-Overall: B
I bought this guide for one reason and that was hopes of having the solutions to the Red Toad Houses for each level. The rest of the guide is amazing, but how can such a guide be complete without solutions to help max out your items? To most this won't be a big deal, however; I had hoped this guide would be much like the guide I owned for Super Mario Bros. 3 which contained the very useful solution guide for the matching games. Thank you to those who post FAQs on gamefaqs as I managed to find a solution guide for the Red Toad Houses there. On a grander scale with strategy guides today, they appear to contain far less information than strategy guides did 10-20 years ago. Is asking for a 100% complete guide too much to ask for? I don't think so. It is a strategy guide containing spoilers after all. Luckily with the exception of the missing solutions for the Red Toad Houses (which is not random as some may think) the guide is still exceptional and useful to find all of the secrets locked within the game.
Some of the reviews are about how great the game itself is - and it is great. However this guide is disappointing.I have always loved the Prima strategy books, but this one doesn't live up to their usual standards.The game level maps are quite small and not easy to detect where you are. Also, they reference locations by number (at point 5, drop down into the space for instance) but there are also letters on the maps that don't have a corresponding explanation.Also, the book is light on tips and actual strategies. I can understand not explaining every detail, but for the really tough parts, it would be nice to have a "hint box" that could be used if you get stuck.The best feature is the location of the gold star coins.
A used book, but I like it don't feel so lost in the worlds. Its not real detailed, but good enough to get around. Maybe because mine is a used book, there are no maps or guidelines for toad houses, so you don't get the bad guys.
This guide is amazing! It covers a lot of information and have many illustrations. Beyond this, is very well organized to provide readers an easy way to find the right information.Really worth the money spent!!
I must confess I bought the game due the game I played as a child on the NES system. And go figure I am now older and couldn't figure out the game so I bought this book and I have fun with game now. If you have problems playing the game this book is a great help!
I just recently received the book and haven't had the opportunity to go through it all. It appears as I expected and know it will be quite helpful in understanding the Mario challenges. I especially like the visuals. My granddaughter was with me when it arrived, has already used it and "translated" her knowledge to my benefit. I am pleased.
This game is incredible! We have had none stop fun playing it. It really is fun for all ages and it's pretty cool that you can go back and play previous levels with multiple players at the same time. Best Mario game yet!
