2.0 out of 5 stars Factual errors undermine this book, 13 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Jacked: The unauthorized behind-the-scenes story of Grand Theft Auto (Paperback)
Its an interesting read, but basic major errors crop up all over the place, from calling the Amiga the Omega, getting mixed up between a NES and SNES, and comparing reception of Simcity 2000 to Mortal Kombat in 1993 - when the former wasn't released until 1994/1995. And this is a minor selection of errors in the first 20 pages. These very basic errors really highlight the fact that the author is completely unfamiliar with gaming, and cant be bothered to basic fact check. When the author is so out of touch with the very subject he is writing about, it undermines everything he is trying to do - ultimately this book is a waste if time I'm afraid.
