David Andrew Griffiths: 'The editors have brought together new essays from some contributors to the original book, but "also included new media theorists, game designers, educators, psychologists and industry professionals." There are a wide range of views expressed in the collection, and one of the most interesting things about the book is the tensions that appear in the proximity and juxtaposition of different perspectives on the issues of gender in gaming.'
