2.0 out of 5 stars Wrong edition, 30 July 2005
I would like to notify all potential customers that this book is actually printed on March 2001, although the product information (shown in amazon at my date of purchase) was clearly stated as January 2005.
Always buy the latest edition of available guide books, as they will serve you better during your traveling.
Lonely Planet books are for the curious and independent-minded travelers. Always recommended!

3.0 out of 5 stars Good content - Lousy typography, 31 Dec. 2002
Although the book is a good one (the content covers a wide area of history and culture of video gaming), I would like to point out that it is rather hard to read.
Why? Simply because there are too much "cool" graphics under the texts, which makes the contrast really bad for reading. I like pictures, but it shouldn't disturb my reading :/
Celia Pearce's article of narrative in games is excellent, not to mention Eric Zimmerman, who grubbles if independent games exist... those two made the book worth my 3starz!
