    Un libro completisimo Yo tenia otros que analizaba todos los lanzamientos de Konami pero nada que ver con esta maravilla Unico defecto, que solo lo hay en ingles, pero aun asi es imprescindible para cualquier fan de Konami incluso de sus lanzamientos mas modernos de sagas como Metal Gear y asi entender como empezo todo El encuadernado es en tapas duras, no cosido y solo pegado pero se ve resistente Todo pero todo el libro es en color y con un papel de un gramaje superior a otros, se siente de calidad y cuando lo tienes ves que vale lo que cuesta Lo volveria a comprar sin duda y por supuesto te lo recomiendo y mucho

    Es una aut ntica enciclopedia, en l neas generales muy recomendable Echo de menos que se reproduzcan m s grandes las car tulas, por el car cter tan visual que tiene el libro La maquetaci n no es especialmente brillante en mi opini n El tama o grosor lo hace poco manejable.

    Me ha encantado tener esta aut ntica enciclopedia de los juegos de Konami, escrita con todo cari oy mimo por el detalle Es un tomo de m s de 800 p ginas, por lo que me preocupa la durabilidad del encuadernado pero el contenido merece mucho la pena como recuerdo de una poca gloriosa de los 8 bits.

    Pr cticamente todo lo que pondr as en un libro sobre el binomio Konami MSX mapas, trucos, an cdotas, homebrew, m sica, portadas, etc etc.El nico problema es que por las medidas del libro son muchas p ginas y se hace complicado de manipular.Un trabajo excelente.

    Un bel mattone per nostalgici. Un tuffo nella storia di un sistema MSX e di una software house di altri tempi.Purtroppo, e non la prima volta, dorso libro arrivato ammaccato.
