As a keen Retro Gamer and someone who grew up playing all of the classic arcade machines it could be hard with many books of this type to write an unbiased review. That is not the case here though, this book truely deserves all of the praise heaped upon it, it is without doubt the definitive guide to the games of the era and will even interest those who only have a minor interest in the subject. The book is huge, contains hundreds of nostalgic photographs as well as well written (and for once well researched) detail about all aspects of the classic gaming era. Many books try to capture the golden age of videogaming but the majority fail - Supercade suceeds in every possible way and I doubt it will ever be superseeded as THE guide to the era. If you only ever buy one book on the subject, this is the one to get.
