3.0 out of 5 stars Nice, but disappointing. 6 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase
Briefly put, this is a great idea, badly realised.
Not even close to being comprehensive, this book is missing many, many characters, even including ones from Street Fighter (T Hawk, Dee Jay, Hakan for example. No C. Viper? Realy?)
It also has a habit of featuring some characters from a franchise but not others (A few from Rival Schools, but over half the RS roster missing)

The book also has grammatical and factual errors, which is a shame.

A fine book for the collection to buy on the cheap and flick through, but not even *close* to an "encyclopedia" Comes across more like an unofficial fan-book.
Maybe an updated edition will be released sometime, after all, when it comes to regular updates, who beats Capcom?

Very good book with background information on all of capcoms major characters from the major game franchises over the decades. The book and illustrations are of high quality, and if your a fan of capcom games and their characters this wont dissapoint.

quality, encyclopaedia of all the capcom characters, lots that i didn't even knew existed, nice to some old skool arcade characters from the 80's all the way to the most recent games, easy to just pick up and flick through, i leave the book out when i have game sessions as a conversation piece.

1.0 out of 5 stars Very disapointing 8 April 2014
Verified Purchase
I ordered this book for my girlfriend who is a huge Capcom fan and she was very disappointed. I'm not so much of a Capcom fan myself, but when I flicked through the book I understood and was very disappointed too.

There's only two pictures for each character (one of them is TINY) and many of them are recycled through the book. EG: Chris and Leon each share the picture of them pointing a gun at each other from Resi 6. Some of the other pictures are also very low quality: The mini pictures for Sherry and Ada are the same picture and it's impossible to even see them in the picture.

The pictures are also only from modern games and the book doesn't bother to include pictures from any older iterations of games. EG: older pictures of Ps1/older characters could have easily been included. There's also nothing like sketches of characters or anything like that. The descriptions of characters are also very basic and doesn't really included that much information on them of their throughout the franchises.

As other reviews said, there's also lots of characters missing. Even things like Dante not mentioning his makeover from DmC (which, I admit, some people make be happy about; but it should still mention it) seem fairly strange, as if this book was rushed from old and out-dated information.

I feel that this book is a cheap book mascaraing as a collector's piece. I would have rather paid a bit more for this book and have something actually decent that me and my girlfriend could appreciate, but this just seems like a very pointless publish which aims to quickly make some cash off of Capcom's 30th.

I'd really avoid this book unless you can get it dirt cheap in which case some of the pictures are nice and things like the front and inside covers are very nicely done. But other than that, avoid.
