I was a massive fan of LucasArts PC adventure games in the 90s so I had to buy this book. I was really not expecting such a large and heavy book, it is really something you would want to look after - I read it with great care! It takes you from the very beginning of the company through the "golden age" and brings you to the modern day, with lots of interesting illustrations, artwork (including cover art) and document copies. I would say that the book does not have any particular bias in terms of games or platform, which is a positive or negative depending on how you feel - for me, I would have liked more focus on all the PC adventure games I played but then that would have unbalanced the book I guess - what is amazing is how much this company has produced during the years and you can be pretty sure its all covered here.

Ultimately, this is a book to cherish, particularly if you have invested any of your formative years in playing LucasArts games!

Reading this book sure brought forth many good old memories of great games I spend months on completing. Reading about this from the developers point of view and how things got in motion was very fasinating for me. I have always been a fan of lucasfilm games. Some things in the book does sound a tad to pink but overall i think they are trying their best to keep to reality. Really great book with lots of funny stories, great pictures from the games and short information about why they did what they did. a must read for Fans of lucasfilm games like the monkey island series.

Since I'm an old fan of LucasArts games and I played almost all their titles, I bought this book to get an insight of the work behind those masterpieces.
I have to say the book is pretty interesting and even managed to catch the attention of friends not owning a PC...
The book itself is quite well-written, very colorful and offers a huge lot of funny anecdotes, to explain the wit and creativity of the guys that created and crafted Monkey Island, Full Throttle, Grim Fandango and many more best-selling videogames.
A must-have for LucasArts fans.

This is an excellent book detailing the story of Lucasarts and the games they made them great. Personally I would have left out the more recent games as they haven't been great and just focused on the point and click and the X-wing and Tie Fighter games, but hey every nostalgia trip needs to have something in it that brings you back down to earth.

This is a MUST BUY!
