  • This was an interesting look at how retro video games screwed up the lore of popular comics Did not think I would enjoy it as much as I did.


  • A solid entry point into the weird world of retro comic games.This book is a breezy fun read that covers a ton of classic games It has entertaining commentary and plenty of pictures of the games in question, and also links to some of the obscure things mentioned It is of an opening act than a deep encompassing work, and you ll probably get out of it if you have at least some familiarity with comics and games of the era I ve played several of the games in the book, and this taught me a great d [...]


  • A quick, fun, and hilarious look into how badly old school video games messed up superheroes From reskinning other games to fit a license to just straight up making up new powers and characters, this book was a hilarious walk down memory lane that was packed with information.


  • Goofy fun for those of us who grew up on video games that didn t quite get the details of our favorite superheroes right I wouldn t have minded a in depth look at some of the games, but this breezy, often sarcastic overview was enjoyable.


  • It is a fun, quick read, but there is just not a lot there I do hope he writes volume 2, if it is the same length as this one, I would buy a hardcopy of the two combined Worth reading if you like superheroes and retro games.


  • Fun trip through fun games Nice memories here I especially like the PC game reviews of obscure, cool looking games Fun, quick read Likely to make you get those emulators fired up.


  • Good read for those who grew up in the 80s It was great to read some of the frustrations that I was having with games were also felt by others around the world Worth a read


  • Short, but funWRONG Is little than a glorified listicle, but it s also fun Superhero video games still have trouble capturing the essence of their subject matter.


  • This book is a quick, easy read Five stars alone for CBake s extensive knowledge and impressive attention to detail.


  • This was a rather humorous book at times It went through dozens of superhero video games and pointed out how these video game adaptations didn t properly represent the heroes It s thoroughly nit picky and not terribly serious, so it was a short, funny read.It also reminded me that there are a lot of pretty good arcade games out there that I haven t played I need to remedy that.



  • ExcellentGood lectur, easy to digest and informative Consider myself a huge videogame and comic nerd, but this book taught me than Teo things



  • great book if you love video game historyi played most of the games in the book and really enjoyed the little bits of trivia and pictures from games i haven t played in years awesome read


  • A super fun read Pun intended I tore through the book through a couple of slow shifts at work Not only did it help pass the time, I became enthralled with the info provided Fingers crossed for a 16 bit sequel


  • Interesting book, kind of cool to see all the old superhero based games but most of the commentary on them was kind lame


  • It s a pet peeve when authors beg for good reviews, and it should be a crime to do so multiple times in one book.Ugh.
