Reviews - What do customers think about ScreenPlay?
A great selection of topics, very professional Aug 1, 2005
The first thing I would like to make clear in this review is something that the contributing authors make clear in every paper: the content of this book is not an attempt by film scholars to colonize game studies. I was delighted to see papers about specific games by academics who had actually played the games. Each paper is refreshingly different from the last, but they have all been coherently selected to fit the theme of the book. The reason that I don't rate the book with 5 stars is no fault of the authors: Due to the date that papers where written, they do not deal with MMO games. A collection of articles of this quality that addressed Masively Multiplayer Games in such detail would easily get a 5 star rating.
