Editorial Reviews

Review

As a model example of interdisciplinary analysis, Codename Revolution offers a comprehensive guide to the Wii platform, while providing insights into broader interactions between technology, commerce, textual creativity, and cultural practices. A must-read not only for game scholars, but for anyone interested in contemporary media and culture.

(Jason Mittell, Associate Professor of American Studies and Film & Media Culture, Middlebury College)

Codename Revolution is a remarkable look at the history of the Nintendo Wii, at its design, its games, and how it changed our idea of what video games can be.

(Jesper Juul, visiting assistant arts professor, NYU Game Center, author of Half-Real)

...make[s] indispensable contributions to game studies...by exploring the theoretical, economic, and political implications of expanding the idea of a 'platform' to include physical paratexts, communication networks, and cultural environments.

(J.A. Saklofske, Acadia University)

I gave this book to my son (Huge Nintendo fan!) and he loved it. This is the first non-digital book he's read in a long time. He enjoyed it very much!
