      Super Mario 64: Survival Guide is a pretty poor strategy guide book that I found to be really quite disappointing. The reason I found it to be very disappointing is because first of all, it is in black and white.

      For me, a person who generally purchases strategy guides to collect and look through, this proved to be quite disappointing.

      There was


      not even any character art to appreciate, thus making the book look even more drab and uninteresting.

      If you are a person that is actually looking for help, avoid this book.

      It is missing information on the secret cap locations, on how to complete certain objectives and it gets names of courses, areas and enemies wrong.

      Plus, since everything is in black ...


      • and white, the screenshots are not always easy to match up with areas in the game and the maps suffer as a result of not being in color.

        This guide may have been cheap to produce since it is not in color, but boy does it ever show! Will this guide help you to beat the game? Sure, since you do not

        need to collect all the power stars to fight Bowser the third time and reach the end of the game, but, if you want to collect all one-hundred and twenty power stars, it is best that you do not pick up this strategy guide.

        The only thing that was nice about it was the history of Mario section, but that unfortunately is about it.
