    When you beat SMG, did you use a guide? And if so, how heavily did you rely on it? I would guess that I was about half and half(half the stars with the guide, half without). So, did you guys use a guide, and if so, how heavily did you rely on it?

    i have 71 stars and havnt used a guide so far, and don't plan to. I think that using guides is lame. but occasionally if im completely stuck on a temple in the legend of zelda, then i might find out what i need to do next by using an online walkthrough, but thats pretty much it.

    If ANYBODY used a guide on this game, they shouldn't be gaming at all. There was absolutely 0 need for a guide in SMG. Except maybe bosses, but that's about it.

    Well...I wouldn't have used a guide if my parents hadn't got me one...they don't understand why not to get me guides for games...but just so I don't put their money to waste I use it every so often...although I know I could do it without it

    ^Kind sir would you like to restate what you just said...

    Guides aren't necessary, it's too easy to figure it out yourself.

    A guide for this game exists?
    Wow, there is no need for a guide in this game.

    Its pretty straight forward, and the "tough" parts usually take a minute to figure out.

    So you're saying that my using a guide makes me that much less of a gamer? I think that you might want to restate that before someone comes along and REALLY gets pissed.

    wiiboy006 you are the man. ok there he should feel good now. i have 120 with mario and 102 with luigi i have never used a guide however i have spent a ton of time on the game. i think the guide kills the fun for me. with mario galaxy if i cant figure it out i go to another galaxy except for a few stars that took forever like gusty gardens 6th star and the 5th one in dusty dune and like 2 of the stars in freezeflame.

    Well, for some of us old farts thats just getting back into gaming after a 20 year break, the guide helps when stuck. I agree that SMG can be done without the guide, but it has helped me get back into the gaming mode.

    I haven't beat the game yet but I have just been using the guide as a reference. For some tips on fighting the bosses but haven't really used it that much. I prefer to try to figure the level out myself and if I'm really stuck I check the guide.

    Using guides is like cheating and that completely kills the fun. But a long time ago for Ocarina of Time I bought the guide just so I could know how to get into the Dark Temple, that was the only use.:lol: :lol: :lol:

    I used a guide, it keeps you on track but it does take away some fun away from the game.:lol:

    I haven't needed a guide and I have done the 120 stars with Mario and about 10 with Luigi. (Would have put in spoilers but one of the posters above would have already ruined it for you ;) ).

    The challenging stars often require platforming dexterity and expertise as opposed to puzzle solving.

    I used a guide twice.
    Both for daredevil runs.

    Neither of them helped me.[​IMG]

    This is the first game in a very long time where I did not use a guide until I collected 120 stars. You pretty much don't need one for this game, and that's rare by today's standards.

    Just go to gamefaqs. There's nothing wrong looking for info. People have lives to live, and a game is for fun, not for work. Never forget that.
