I''d assume python can handle game scripting since you can call C from python and vice-versa.
I''m learning that language myself, so I won''t elaborate further.

Python itself is really good. Even small games can be written with Python easily.
For real games - Python is often too slow.
Python can also be used as scripting language in games. The only disadvantage is the overhead to allow the execution of C++ methods within Python - but it is possible.
That''s why I''m currently working on another scripting language similar to C++/Java which is tightly connected with the C++ Engine which allows calling C++ method from the Scripting Engine with nearly no overhead!
