The Essential Guide to Videogames by Future Magazines

The Essential Guide to Videogames features over 1000 of the most important games there have ever been. And in this must-have guide they are reviewed by the very best in the business - by the people at Future magazines, the leading publishers of computer gaming magazines in the UK. These are the same writers who every month guarantee that Future captures 52% of the videogames magazine market (and 60% of the PlayStation magazine market). This is a guide that's indispensable to any dedicated gamer: it's the Halliwell's equivalent for videogames. Want to know which games offer the best value for money? The most exciting gameplay, the finest graphics? Or the most spectacularly worst? And also whether the game is currently on sale? You'll find it all here. Reviewed here are the groundbreaking concepts, the memorable releases you can't help returning to as well as the real stinkers - right across the current games systems, from the new PS2 to Colour Gameboy and PC. In addition, there are previews for the hot new releases for autumn 2001 and the stunning new systems on their way (GameBoy Advance, the GameCube and most significantly, Xbox) as well as a nostalgic look back at classic old games. The Essential Guide to Videogames is a required purchase for anyone who's serious about their gaming.
