A great book to have on your shelf
on 4 May 2010
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!
