Playing with Power: Nintendo NES Classics will cover complete strategy for many classic NES games as well as content from the popular Nintendo Power magazine of the time.

Exclusive embossed slipcase holds this hardcover tome in a clever package that resembles a classic NES Game Pak!

A fascinating retrospective on 17 NES classics-including Super Mario Bros. 3, Donkey Kong, and The Legend of Zelda!

Interviews and commentary from Nintendo visionaries who pioneered this era of gaming.

A showcase of vintage advertising and priceless excerpts from Nintendo Power magazine back issues!

Plus hand-drawn maps, character and game environment art, and much more!

Heat - hope it's as fun as reading my old Super Plays!
I have this - got it a year or so ago on a similar deal. Worth making sure this is the one with the NES cartridge sleeve as the other version with a soft cover is rubbish.

Not a bad book at all but the print quality is absolutely abysmal. Pages are thin and that has affected the crispness of the ink.

I don’t think there’s anything in it you couldn’t find online, but the history stuff is nice and is a cool present for a collector.
I have this. The one with the proper cover that is. Its not great to be honest. Cheap paper, content a bit meh really.
You're better off buying the fine NES Visual Compendium from Bitmap Books. Not a fiver obviously but high quality and a great book it is too:

Out of stock, locally and online :-(
Yeah, don't get this. I bought it as a Christmas present for a mate and ended up sending it back - the quality was terrible, like the pages had been dunked in water then dried on a radiator.

I had two issues with this book.

1. Art from after NES era. Why include it, space could have been used better for era specific artwork.

2. Why date the book with things like 'xxxx is currently working on xxxx and it should be released in 2018'

Good otherwise though.
