5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful book, 13 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The History of Sonic the Hedgehog (Hardcover)
The first thing that grabs you about the book is the size. It isn't particularly large from looking at cover, but it sure is thick!
The second thing that grabs you is the design. It screams quality from cover to cover. It is extensively researched and well written, and every single Sonic game is represented; even the obscure and cancelled ones.
The book begins with a brief history of Sega and continues all the way through up to the present. Every page has high quality artwork (some of which I'd never seen before. Quite an achievement given how reproduced Sonic art has become)
It features exclusive interviews with the game's creators and no stone is left unturned to get the bottom of the story behind Sonic's creation and every subsequent game, from the sublime to the (admitted) less than stellar (Sonic '06).
Much has been said about the hedgehogs history of late. His creation has seen a lot of attention recently due to the recent 20th anniversary (for example, Gamesmaster recently published a wonderful special anniversary issue) but depsite all of this, this book still justifies the rather high price tag by being so extensive and so finely made.

Great purchase for Sonic and video game history fans
