4.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful art book at a premium price, 19 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Dark Souls: Design Works (Hardcover)
I received my copy of the Dark Souls Design Works today and I am very impressed. Having been very tempted to import the original version when it was released in Japan but never did end up getting it, I was thrilled to see that it was being translated into English. It was certainly worth the wait because this book is absolutely gorgeous, I was actually quite reluctant to remove it from the plastic packaging because of how nice the cover looks. Content-wise, there's 128 pages of artwork with a nice interview with the game's designers at the end. It's fascinating to see the concept art and how it evolved into the finished product we got in the game. The artwork is stunning and varied from environmental sketches, to equipment and everything in between. The interview at the end is a nice flourish and gives a good insight into the vision that the creators had for Dark Souls.

My one gripe with this art book is the price, you don't get a great deal of content in relation to the price tag, but I can assure that anyone that is a big fan of the Souls games will find value in the Dark Souls Design Works despite this.
