A great resource for gamers and EU fans alike.,

This review is from: Star Wars: The Old Republic: Encyclopedia (Hardcover)
With 'The Old Republic', BioWare introduced a whole new time frame of the Galaxy Far Far Away, with a new galaxy-spanning war and a new Empire of Sith Lords.
If you're a TOR gamer and want to know more about the world you'll be exploring or if you're a Star Wars fan curious about what's going on with all the new characters and settings, then this is undoubtedly the book for you.
No prior knowledge of the game or its setting are needed to delve into this treasure trove.
A beautifully designed book with full colour pages from start to finish featuring paintings and CGI character models of people, places, weapons, vehicles and creatures.
When I bought this book it was as a Star Wars completist; I wasn't expecting it to be much more than a cash-in for the game. But what I discovered was one of the most delightful Star Wars reference books I've ever read. I can honestly say I've not been so pleased with a reference book since I bought the first edition of the Star Wars Encyclopedia as a teenager (back when my Star Wars book collection numbered about ten rather than the hundreds I have now!).
