5.0 out of 5 stars Very big, March 7 2012
I wasn't expecting such a huge book. Although all of this information in the book is easily found online, the seperating pages between chapters are so beautiful I wish I could cut them out and put them on my wall.
I bought this book more for the pretty art then i did for the content but there is a break down of each map to help you for things like good sniping locations , places to place mines and etc. IS a must buy for those that want to be the very best, but you can live without this one if your not a big fan of art.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Present, Dec 5 2011
This book was a present that turned out better than expected. I was surprised to find that this book is full colour and appropriate page thickness with a gloss finish on the page. The book content seems like a good quick summary of lighting, the book is broken out into over 60 small 4 page sections based around an idea making it so extremly easy to pick up and read like a magazine which is important as taking this book all in at once would be too much.

"Creative Lighting" covers the basics of lighting and learning to take your initial shot properlly then gradually jumps into more photoshop based elements that seem very fun to play with.

Overall good book and a great gift for the holidays or a birthday.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not the best , but maybe the most fun., Nov. 8 2011
Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
Knowing the battlefield series and the makers of this series well enough , i knew that the single player would be horrible, but that is okay because that's not what you are paying for! The single player is more of a way for people bad at the game to get better, kind of like an 8 hour long tutorial.

The main focus of this game is the multiplayer options. With the new edition of Co-op mode so you can play along with your friends , one of my biggest complaints of the previous edition of this game has been dealt with. The multiplayer in this game is so absurdly fun that i wish i could ditch my job and schooling for just a few weeks.

Instead of a long review ill just post a breakdown

Sound - Pros: directional , clear , obviously sounds beautiful on nice surround sound systems
Cons: Although an overstatement; the bullet sounds seem clippy.

Graphics - Pros: Beautiful environments, massive maps that are rendered with such beauty,added new features like how lighting changes your vision which can be annoying at first.

- Cons: This games graphics are so massive that hard drive space is needed to install the textures for quicker access.

Gameplay - Pros: Beautiful Multiplayer, most buildings are interactive making you feel like you are not limited in your space, MASSIVE MAPS!
- Cons: The jump design seems a little silly to me , but also lets you know when your jumping so it cancels out, MASSIVE MAPS!

Overall : The game is worth the buy , look for perks for buying online such as origins poster bonus , or similar to amazon pre orders to get the best bang for your buck. =]

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth the buy, Oct. 8 2011
Although I do have mixed feelings about the book so far, (as I haven't finished it yet) overall it is a unique way to teach you c++.

The fact that there is a final project in each chapter means that half of the information of this book just doesn't slip through the cracks , it actually forces you to apply what you just read.

Although i do feel that some things could be explained with better depth, I also think that dding ore may have ruined the nice casual , fun and exciting vibe this book gives you.

Although all of the games do not require any graphics , there is some rather advanced programs broken down for the begginer to understand.

This book has reconnected me with my love for programming and I suggest buying it for anyone who is interested in simple game development.

Book Layout/Design - 4.8/5
Content Amount - 4/5
Content Quality - 4.9/5
Overall - 4.6/5

5.0 out of 5 stars Unimaginably fun., Oct. 8 2011
Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
I ordered this to reclaim my old childhood and all the fond memories, I didn't expect a whole new spectrum of beautiful art work , fantastically balanced , and just overall amazing.

The pokewalker that comes with the game was an interesting little bonus that i didn't expect and has forced me to get out walking around to get some of my favourite pokemon that are only available on the pokewalker.

Such a large amount of pokemon can be caught in this game and can be brought over by other games such as sapphire and ruby.

Lots of little extras in this game to ! There is even many online forums based around making the best possible team in this game making me all the more addicted.
