There is absolutely NO CODE in this book. This publication is geared towards the newbie (I should have known... CyberRookies!) gamer who wants to build a game but has never gone through the process of developing anything. (...) Hence, the level of freedom you can get is severely curtailed. Sure, there is good software in this book, but if you must buy it, I suggest you don't open the CD packet so that you may return the book WHEN (not IF) you dislike it.
To the book's credit, the title isn't terribly misleading... He should have said "(...bad) 3D Game Creation with No Programming Required". You can't possibly make something worth playing (or getting money for) with no programming effort required! It's not possible!
Bottom line: if you want to build a (...bad) game in 20 minutes with graphics quality like the early 90's, with rookie software, then this book is for you...
