Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I liked the looks of the book and they definitely got me by the excerpt and the cover. Tha book is massively extensive and covers almost any graphic adventure you could think of, and many you didn't even know that existed! The only setback are the oh-so-many spoilers it has. Except for that, you'll make a good idea of what you can expect from any of the reviewed games.

This book made me realise how few adventure games I have finished and been able to enjoy! Too much work to do...

I actually bought this as a prize for one of our pupils in an adventure game design class, and wanted to keep it myself (but didn't!). It's a weighty tome, covering pretty much the entire history of graphic adventures from those with static images through to the more modern ilk.

Interviews with games creators, comparative reviews of games (with a nicely rose-tinted view of the past) and lots and lots of pictures.

Having had to part with the one I bought, this is on my wishlist so I get a copy for myself.

Great read if you remember the point and click Lucasarts days. So many great games, memories. From Beneath a steel sky to Grim Fandango.

Came quickly, very comprehensive. The cover is particularly shiny, the pages are all in order. I mean, this is a book and it does what it says Amazon. I can't write that much about it, really.
