    OCEAN is responsible for some of my favourite childhood memories: Robocop, Batman The Movie, Rambo First Blood Part II, The Addams Family, Daley Thompson's Decathlon, Operation Wolf, Wizball, (to name but a few). So to learn about the people that made these games and the conditions under which they were made is fascinating to me. I don't read a lot of books (I'm more a music and movies person) but I just had to read this one cover-to-cover. I don't know how interesting it would be to someone that didn't play games on the C64, Spectrum, Amstrad, Atari ST or Amiga...but if you did, then I think this will be worth your time!
  • Just a great read

    This is well written and really takes you back. Especially those that owned a ZX Spectrum, Commodore 64 and Amstrad back in the day. If you like your Retro Gaming, you will love this.
