Colourful, informative and fun!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Guinness World Records Gamer's Edition 2008 2008 (Hardcover)
Received this today and been reading quite a bit!
Very well written and colourful (important to me), with lots of useful information, not just records but reviews, histories, tips etc. It's like a condensed collection of all the good games magazines from 2007.
Importantly, the list of consultants used by Guinness is very impressive, with lots of well-known industry journalists/experts lending their writing experience to the articles, making it feel a lot more mature (I'm 30 BTW) and not just full of records and facts for children. Sometimes it feels like Edge, or more specifically the recent 100 Best Games book they released, which could be a good or bad thing depending on what you like.
All in all a great addition to anyone serious about their gaming, and wanting to know more about our favourite pastime, young or old.
