5.0 out of 5 stars Beyond Amazing.
I had been waiting for a book like this since i originally heard about its release in japan, even arranged for a copy through friends/family. This book has everything a collector wants to know about a series. Times lines, concept art, character design, idea's that didn't make the games, etc...
This book weighs a fair bit due to the glossy paper and hard cover and...

3.0 out of 5 stars Too much skyward sword
This book is nice but there's too much emphasis on the newest game, the skyward sword. For example: there are 65 pages of concept art for Skyward sword, while there are only 4 pages for the original Legend of Zelda, and Ocarina of Time, arguably the most important game ever made, has only 6 brief pages. I would have preferred an equal coverage of all the main games in the...

5.0 out of 5 stars Beyond Amazing., Jan. 30 2013

This review is from: The Legend of Zelda: Hyrule Historia (Hardcover)
I had been waiting for a book like this since i originally heard about its release in japan, even arranged for a copy through friends/family. This book has everything a collector wants to know about a series. Times lines, concept art, character design, idea's that didn't make the games, etc...
This book weighs a fair bit due to the glossy paper and hard cover and you can easily beat a Ganon with it. I love the alternative art for characters through the games and the rich story it tells you. As an added bonus you even get a 32 page manga in the back the predates the Skyward Sword game.
Not gonna post any spoilers but if you love playing Zelda as much as me get this book. The only games it doesn't timeline are the short ones with no real plot like Links crossbow training and the Links game & watch game.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gift for Xmas, Dec 25 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Legend of Zelda: Hyrule Historia (Hardcover)
Got this as a gift for my boyfriend since I was low on cash. First off, best price compared to any store, even walmart. Two, my boyfriend loved it. He thought it would be kind of cool as a fan, but once he read it he LOVED it. He's been a huge Zelda fan since the beginning and he reads parts of it and now wants to be playing all the games again.

5.0 out of 5 stars A book to rule them all, Feb. 6 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Legend of Zelda: Hyrule Historia (Hardcover)
Simply awesome.

I think it is the best review for this book.

This book bring back every Zelda game with their story, with artwork, etc.

For less than 30$, It is a must for everyone who played any zelda game.

Cheap and Perfect, nothing to say more!

3.0 out of 5 stars Too much skyward sword, June 28 2014
This review is from: The Legend of Zelda: Hyrule Historia (Hardcover)
This book is nice but there's too much emphasis on the newest game, the skyward sword. For example: there are 65 pages of concept art for Skyward sword, while there are only 4 pages for the original Legend of Zelda, and Ocarina of Time, arguably the most important game ever made, has only 6 brief pages. I would have preferred an equal coverage of all the main games in the series, or coverage proportionate to how important or historically significant a game is rather than how new it is.

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible Purchase, Jan. 30 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Legend of Zelda: Hyrule Historia (Hardcover)
As a longtime (and hardcore) Zelda fan, as soon as this book was released in Japan, I joined the movement to have it localized for other regions as well. I have been awaiting this product for over a year now, and I can gladly say this purchase has been more than worth the wait. At such a low cost, this book about all things Zelda contains exclusive art, information, words from the creators, manga and more presented with an unrivalled finesse. You are paying to get The Book Of Zelda, to put it shortly. I can assure any Zelda fan out there that you will not regret picking this one up to add to your collection.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great for the cheap price., April 13 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Legend of Zelda: Hyrule Historia (Hardcover)
this book is great for only 18.99$ but don't buy this book expecting to have a lot of inside information. This is an art book more than anything. I still recommend this book for any hardcore Zelda fans.

Hubby is a huge fan of Legend of Zelda, but he isn't a reader, however, he loves this book. His face lit up when he flipped it page by page. ;)

5.0 out of 5 stars Great look at the zelda franchise, Aug. 29 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Legend of Zelda: Hyrule Historia (Hardcover)
A great book showing the history of the Zelda series. It mainly focuses on concept art and the story told through the franchise. My only problem, minor though it is, is that a large part of the book is dedicated to skyward sword. I understand that game was a big deal when this book was released, but it kind of took the spotlight off the other games. Regardless, this is still a great book, especially for Zelda fans.
