Enhaced Edition review
on 23 December 2013
Ok, first of all, forgot all those review that are before this one. Those ones are CLEARLY about the first edition, not this second one (the so called "Enhanced Edition"). So credit should go, where credit is due. That said, I must now say; this is a HUGE improvement over the first edition.
All those little mistakes of the first edition were corrected, there is more information, more images, and surprisingly even an entire section dedicated to Europe. Serious, usually Europe is either forgotten or slightly mentioned. Not here. Interviews to some main characters in Sega, almost every country of Europe mentioned, the marketing, the games done by European companies for Sega consoles (Ocean, US Gold, DoMark, Codemasters...), I even enjoy knowing more about Sega World here in London (so many people have forgotten about it!). Once again I applause the authors effort in really turning this second edition into a more deep look of Sega and its worldwide heritage.
So is everything perfect? Maybe no. Slight mistakes can be found, but nothing serious. Also I take in consideration that the book is huge and full of information, so small typos can occur. Nevertheless, this is still a great book. I gave it 5 stars without any problem.
If you're a big Sega fan, and really interested in some insight about how Sega functioned in Europe, do yourself a favor and buy this book.
