Andrew Fisher, The Commodore 64 Book: 1982-199X (hiive, 2007). For some reason I'd got it into my head that The Commodore 64 Book was a general history of the machine, so I was inevitably disappointed when it turned out to be a catalog of games. I'll tell you, though, there's a great deal of nostalgia to be found in those pages for any former (or current) C64 enthusiast, if you were at all a gamer. While The Commodore 64 Book is by no means an exhaustive compendium of the games that were released for the system, it hits most of the highlights.

Andrew Fisher's The Commodore 64 Book - 1982 to 199x covers over two hundred of the best games for the Commodore 64.Over two hundred classic games are covered in this book by Andrew Fisher, former writer for Commodore Force and Commodore Format and regular contributor to Retro Gamer. Introduced with a foreword by gaming industry legend Jeff Minter, this is a nostalgic and detailed look back at the rapid changes in gaming and how the Commodore 64 evolved. The book is split into chapters covering the years 1982 to 1992 - the commercially successful years for the machine. The final chapter covers the years from 1993 onwards, the end of the commercial era and some of the notable homebrew games that have followed. Each chapter is introduced with a short history of what was happening to Commodore and the games industry. The chapters are colour-coded and marked by the margin characters; each year has sprites/characters from a game published in that year. For each game there is a full page review with multiple screenshots and a scan of the game's cover. The games chosen represent some of the best titles the C64 has to offer, including well-known names like Impossible Mission, The Last Ninja and Armalyte. There are also one or two less well-known games, chosen by the author as personal favourites to bring them to a wider audience. The media (tape, disk or cartridge) each game was released in is shown, along with review scores and a quote from leading European magazines of the time including ZZAP! 64 and Commodore User. The reviews are split into three main parts. First comes the actual review section, describing the author s opinions of the game. The second section gives anecdotes and trivia about its creation and the people that made it. Notable sequels, conversions and similar games are also discussed. The final section gives the plot of the game and talks about the actual gameplay. The games are listed by year in the contents, with an index at the back providing quick access to favourite games. This is a follow-up to Andrew Rollings' The ZX Spectrum Book - 1982 to 199x and is the second of the Golden Years series. A year in the making, it is essential reading for any Commodore 64 fan and a great coffee table book for all gamers.

I ordered this book expecting a decent book that would take me on a nice visual trip down "Commodore 64 memory lane".

The book exceeded those expectations significantly. There are hundreds of games profiled, all with excellent color screenshots and summaries of the games. I couldn't believe how many games I had forgotten about - truly brought brack some great memories.

I also had envisioned this being a nice big coffee-table style book that would fit alongside other similar books in my collection. While the book has excellent color photography and is a visual feast, the physical size of the book is much smaller than I pictured. The description of the book does say that it measures 8.4 x 5.4 x 0.5 inches; as you can see, it is similar in size and feel to a user manual that comes with a new car and fits in the glove box. It is a case of a great thing coming in a small package, but do realize that you will not be getting a big hardcover book (which for the money, you might expect a bit more).

Also, I live in the United States. Sure, C64s here in the US shared a similar path and common games as the C64s in the UK, but since the book is written by a British author, the content is directed towards the UK point of view and content. So you might see a few references and games that do not ring a bell because they were specific to the UK.

In summary, if you were a huge C64 fan (you know who you are!), I highly recommend this book!

This book is kind of a chronicle of a sampling of games that were released throughout the years. The book is a little pricey, but all the illustrations are all color with actual screen shots of game play and the cover art of the game. It its like a coffee table book, meant to be a conversation piece to bring back memories and to show the evolution of gaming to younger generations. There were way too many games in the C64 catalogue for the author to display but this book has some essentials as well as lesser known title. This book is great and I hope the author will publish follow up books, but maybe breaking them down by arcade games, sport games, text games, RPGs, etc. I want to thank the people who made this book possible so us enthusiast can have a history of C64 games in print.

This is an excellent book for all C64 lovers, new and old.
Book is printed in full color and screenshots for all games are provided, alongside with short reviews that will excite readers' curiosity to play those old games out once again.

In summary, a great coffee table book but much smaller than the average "coffee table" items we are used to. Actually, I'd recommend this as a great "bedside table" book instead: read a couple of pages before going to sleep and dreaming of your favorite old games is guaranteed! ;)

Having just embarked on a Commodore 64 revival (it strikes me every few years), it was a pleasure to reminisce over some of the popular and favourite games back in the 1980s. It's also interesting and encouraging to see that there is still a market today, albeit quite specialized. As for me, I've purchased an SD2IEC device and I'm happily developing in assembler again. Highly recommended.

This is a GREAT book.
Great information, detailed data, lots of pictures, great quality printing, everything you could ask for a book like this.
Of course you will miss some of your favorites or will not like some of the selections, but that will always happen with any "Best of" list.
100% recommended.

Screenshots, descriptions, ratings from UK C64 magazines, and some commentary from Fisher make this one a solid buy for old geeks like me. ***
