The aim of this study was to investigate the effectiveness of traditional, 2D and 3D game-based environments assessed by student achievement scores and to reveal student perceptions of the value of these learning environments. A total of 60 university students from the Faculty of Education who were registered in three sections of a required instructional design course participated in the study. Sections were randomly assigned to three groups: traditional, 2D and 3D game-based learning environments. "Mayer's Multimedia Design Principles" learning unit was presented to all groups. Data were obtained through a pre-test, a post-test and a questionnaire. Results revealed that all learning environments supported learning gains, with no differences among them. Additionally, participants valued 2D game-based environments more than 3D game-based and traditional classroom environments.
