2.0 out of 5 stars Do not buy, October 9, 2011
This book may have been great when it first came out, however most of the code will not run with the current stable release of cocos2d. The first "hello world" tutorial can be completed if you are already somewhat familiar with cocos2d/iOS dev, but once you hit the second tutorial, you run into very big problems. It seems a shame because the material is easy to understand, it just does not line up with current calls/names in the framework. If you enjoy scouring the internet for updated naming conventions and tracking down [SOLVED} threads of how to actually get the tutorials to run, be my guest. For everyone else who doesn't have such a forgiving schedule, dont buy this one.

2.0 out of 5 stars Rob, August 3, 2010
This review is from: This Is War (Audio CD)
This album is BORING. The only reason this album will sell ANY copies is "Kings and Queens" and "This Is War." I almost feel tricked into buying the album after hearing those 2 songs. HUGELY disappointed with this album. I remember listening to it for about an hour and not having a single song catch my attention as i was driving.
