Rating details. Sort order. This is a good book, with lots of great tips and info about the games industry. However, it has some problems, in my opinion. One of them is that, while this book is a great resource to learn about an ample variety of subjects in Game Development, the way a few parts could use more examples, less code.
I confess that, since I had some previous experience with Game Development, I kinda skimmed a few of those parts I already had some experience with, searching only for tidbits.
However, those parts This is a good book, with lots of great tips and info about the games industry.
However, those parts are few and between, and everything is well explained, in a general way. Another small problem this has is, since this is a techlonogy book, a few things evolved from a few years ago - Version control systems have changed; The sample project need a few modifications to run on current versions of Visual Studio.
Now, the good. This book shows a lot of great insights about game development - not only about code, but at how things happen on a real game company. The "Tales from the Trenches" are, sometimes, the most interesting part of the chapters.
If you want to have a general idea about game development, know programming well, and has patience for big code dumps, this book is great for you!
If you want more in-dept info, or have absolutely no experience with coding, search somewhere else. Mar 13, Victor Sui rated it it was ok. Interesting read, but was hoping for more guidance.
Felt more like a reference book than a guide. Seemed to lose its steam about halfway through. Mar 11, Danien rated it really liked it.
Covers a number of good and proven game programming practices, by someone who has extensive professional experience in AAA large teams, commercial game development.
This review refers to the 2nd edition. This is a foundational book that covers what is required for a typical game engine. Advanced programmers should already know most of the material. This is a good guide on all the different components of a game engine.
Junior programmers trying to learn more about the overall engine or those starting out on their first complete engine should definitely read this. Jul 05, Ahmed rated it liked it. I know that book since its first edition in the early of as I remember.
There is no much DirectX stuff there, but it scratches all the game development topics.
I would love to see more demos in the next edition. I also liked the chapter that's about the scene graph and its implementation using DirectX. Chapters by the second author are really great and its about practical experience in coding, I e I know that book since its first edition in the early of as I remember.
Chapters by the second author are really great and its about practical experience in coding, I enjoyed reading his debugging techniques chapters a lot. The book is ok for beginners in game programming.
The example code is ok as well - which means it does it's job.
As an experienced coder I bought the book mostly for tips on how to build an efficient architecture and data structures. Although the book contained pretty basic stuff on that, it wasn't anything new or out of the ordinary. So for me, it didn't contain what I'd hoped for. But as said it's a good overview on how to get started.
Nov 27, Avi rated it really liked it. I bought this book because I was going to do some game programming, but that didn't pan out. Also, the book didn't turn out to have much, if anything, to do with the kind of game programming I would have been doing. However, it's very well-written and contains a lot of wisdom that applicable to any software development efforts.
I'll be keeping my eye out for any more of McSahffry's books, even if they have nothing to do with anything I might ever work on or otherwise encounter.
Written by a professional game developer, he also gives tips about his experience while working as a game developer. I really like the book, one problem is his engine is not abstracted that much to work with opengl and directx.
Also the book covers directx 11, but very short introduction directx is giving. I highly recommend that book to any beginner and intermediate game programmer. Starts out really great, going into some good detail on engine design with some important "in the trenches" pieces I haven't seen elsewhere. The sample game won't win any awards once I got it to compile and run successfully , but that is probably the point.
One of the best books on game development out there. While on the surface it is Windows-only, the concepts from it apply across the board except maybe Cell but as Cell is gone for good, it becomes a moot issue.
Lot's great stuff in here, but I wish some of the topics were talked about a bit more in depth, versus other topics. Oct 14, cartmanie rated it really liked it. I read it on my kindle.
It has a wide topic in game development, so I think I'd rather take it as a reference book. Joshua rated it really liked it Jan 04, Launching Visual Studio Daniel Petersen Add Game directory.
