In the press

"Opens the eyes as much as it feeds the imagination" - The Big Issue

"An immersive and educational experience that hits all the right buttons" - The Independent

"Slick, state-of-the-art and expanded for its European debut, Game Masters tweaks all the right pleasure centres for gamers, and seems intriguing and accessible enough to tempt neutrals into picking up a joypad" - Eurogamer

"Providing a fascinating and hyperactive journey through videogame history, Game Masters is sure to be one of the National Museum of Scotland’s most popular exhibitions to date" - Edinburgh Spotlight

"We cannot recommend Game Masters enough" - Bleedingcool.com

"It is an exhibition like no other. In fact, 'exhibition' doesn't really describe what is going on here; it's more of an interaction or (dare I say) immersion. Occupying a vast upper gallery is a banging and bleeping miasma of analog fuzz and digital delirium. On entering, you are transported back to the golden age of arcade gaming.." - Scottish Review
