5.0 out of 5 stars Videogames as art, 26 Sep 2001

This review is from: Re:Play: The Ultimate Games Graphics (Paperback)
It's good to see a book taking a serious look at videogame graphics without falling into the trap of immediately praising hi-res images with detailed effects. This is about the milestones of graphics and the beauty they can contain.
The editorial introducing each section is generally well written and the pages of images are laid out brilliantly.
Highlights include the full level displays of various games including (Super Mario World and Sonic 3), battlezone & astroids images, and finally, the double page spread of wire frame characters from Virtua Fighter in various fighting poses. Pure class.
For people who are into games this is a definate five star book. But the best thing with this book is that it can appeal to anyone who appreciates good design and graphics. If you don't like games it's probably still worth four stars.
