Excellent, worth the price,
This review is from: The Art of Halo: Creating a Virtual Masterpiece (Paperback)
I got this book yesterday, and I can tell you outright that the reviews (which shower it with praise) still make it seem worse than it actually is. I'm not saying the book is perfect though.
I would have liked to see more descriptions and creators' comments on the art. Some captions don't do the picture justice. But if you really want to admire as much Halo concept art as you can, then get this book. There's lots of art in it that you can't find on the internet. And unless you're a hardcore, salivating psycho Halo fan, there will be some stuff in the book about the Halo universe/game design/concepts/creative process that you didn't know before.
Like the previous reviewers say, if you're a true fan, get this book. I am a true fan, but I'm a cheap true fan. So at first I didn't get the book, because it was bloody expensive. But it's now on discount here on Amazon, and £10+ pounds is definitely not too much to ask for a book with full-colour art on every page. So for the thrifty ones amongst us, here's something that strikes the balance between economy and obsession.
