First off, my only complaint on this order was that it took so long to actually receive the books, though I can understand the reason for the delays. As far as the actual books go, I owned both books previously, the first from when Borders bookstore were still in business and I believe the second I may have ordered from Amazon. I looked through the first one so many times and having it for so long, larges sections of the pages started coming out from the spine. I didnt want to risk ruining the books anymore so I rarely took it out to look thru it. Trying to replace it was almost a lost cause, other copies I seen in other places were asking hundreds of dollars for one.
So I was very excited to see Archives I and II come out as a set!! And at a very, VERY reasonable price. Im a huge nerd when it comes to the RE franchise (I dont really include the movies in with that, since the storyline is quite different from that of the game, though the movies are good in there own right.) Yes, it maybe be a video game series, but i absolutely love the storyline, and how it all ties together, even all these years later since the first game came out. These books also fill in many of the gaps left open from the games, tidbits you might not have found out in the games. I literally can not be bored looking through these. Im not quite ready to take them out of the packaging, but I wont feel as guilty looking through my older copies.
If your a fan of Resident Evil, enjoyed playing through the games through the years, Id definitely say this is a one set of books to add to your collection.
