Customer Review

5.0 out of 5 stars A Good Introduction, 26 Feb. 2011
This review is from: Level Up!: The Guide to Great Video Game Design (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This book gives a readable, intelligent overview of video game design that will appeal to a wide spectrum of readers.

I initially ordered this title for my 11-year-old son, who is obsessed with creating video games and he loved the book, but it is equally suited to the non-specialist adult reader who wants to get a straightforward overview of the subject. So many books on this topic are aimed at the supergeek, who already has a high level of knowledge. This title manages to simplify a complex subject without patronising the reader, rather like the "For Dummies" series.

If you already know (almost) everything there is to know about video game design, this book isn't for you. But if you're taking your first tentative steps into this area and want to understand the background to the industry, this is an excellent introduction.
