Reception[edit]

Reception for the book has been generally positive, with critics praising the wealth of knowledge, but criticizing some particular entries. PopMatters stated, "Most of the choices seem great to me, and I like that the authors include a lot of smaller, experimental games and some flawed but important titles as well", but disagreed with some entries, such as Army of Two: The 40th Day.[3]

While The Austin Chronicle praised the history that the book presented, it criticized the book for its repetitiveness in listing so many sequels in certain long-running series, such as the Final Fantasy or Resident Evil series.[4][8][9]

In his review for Starburst, Callum Shephard said that it was "a good guide" with the proviso that "It's distinctly weaker when it comes to covering handheld gaming and some titles are definitely under-represented."[10]
