5.0 von 5 Sternen Super Buch! 23. Februar 2013
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
It is a very good book, where you can find much information about Sega's history.
The author made an excellent research and tries to explain the whole thing, since the time after WW2 until the time when the Dreamcast died. Lots of interesting facts are said and always full of details.
The cons are that the book is a little expensive, its lack of revision is clear, who revised it did not make a very good job, it has only b&w pictures and it has only one page about the Game Gear.
But overall I totally recomend this book if you are a Sega fan like I am and are look for detailed information that you cannot find so easy on the Internet.

2.0 von 5 Sternen I wish this was what I wanted 21. April 2013
Von Devin McConnell - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
I am a fan of the original Sega Base articles but I've learned more and more over time that they are not aging well and contain a large number of inaccuracies as well as editorializing conjecture about the zeitgeist of the video game industry and Sega. I was really hoping that this ebook release had updated and repaired the problem with these thirteen year old articles, I was disappointed to find they are not. My go to test is to read the chapter on the Genesis where the author descibes a Sega Scream commercial where a series of young men appear before an angry old man to take out his daughter. The author uses this as a seminal memory of the Sega Scream advertising camping and the zeitgeist around Sega's advertising attitude at the time. What makes this my tell tale sign of disrepair is that the author is describing an ad for the Panasonic 3DO system. If you want to read one of the best takes on Sega and it's history then I would still recommend the original Sega Base articles on the Internet, I do still recommend them to Sega fans but do keep in mind that they are not the word of god, they're articles on the internet. I respect the effort to make it an ebook and gain it more exposure but if you've read the articles before there's no reason here to buy it, sadly.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A Great Retelling of the 90s 9. Oktober 2012
Von Sang - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I went into this book with a high expectation. Overall, it paints a very dynamic decade of what Sega has done during the 90s.
As someone who spent the entire teenage years with Genesis/Saturn/Dreamcast, it brought many great memories back.

I bought this book as a Kindle e-book. Read it on the Kindle 4th gen.

*Serviceable e-book kindle formatting. Could have been better but nothing wrong with formatting.
*Great job covering everything from Sega's origin to Dreamcast era.
*Details are right in the middle. Not too much, not too little.

*Some incorrect facts. For example, the author lists Battle Arena Toshinden as a Namco game and descries Yu Suzuki as a master Programmer.(Toshiden is a Takara game, and Yu Suzuki is a director/producer).
*Too much repetition throughout the book. Some information are repeated way too many times.
*The flow is akward is some places. It throws you off the rail.
*Some minor grammer errors.

Considering the price, it's a nice read for any diehard Sega fan.

5.0 von 5 Sternen How The Mighty Have Fallen 18. Februar 2013
Von amcdc79 - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
A very well written book that describes in detail how Sega went from being a Major player in the condole business to not in it at all. They finally had a console that was too far ahead of it's time, with Great games, but no money to promote it. Truly sad when a Gaming company that had the world by the tail, makes mistake after mistake, and only realizes what to do too late. They deserved better, and even though they are but a shadow of what they were, at least they are still around. Very interesting book, but could have been proof read a little bit better. I shed a tear, and raise a glass to SEGA!!!

2.0 von 5 Sternen A Mess 11. August 2013
Von George - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition
This book has no sense of order. At one point the author could be talking about Sega in 1993, while in the next he could be talking about Sega in 1990. Very frustrating to read.

On top of that, this book doesn't offer any new insight behind SEGA. Just about everything in this book can be on the internet (for free) or is common knowledge.

A book like this usually has in depth interviews with those involved in the topic but this book has none of that. An interview with Tom Kalinske, Mark Cerny, or Peter Moore, would've helped out the validity of this book immensely.

Not worth the time or money. Just read what is out there free and available on the internet. Its more coherent.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Too Many Factual Errors 11. November 2012
Von akator - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
While there is some decent information, the factual errors are too numerous for me to enjoy the book. I wish that more solid research and fact checking had been done before publication.
