Top critical review
on June 29, 2013
Getting my hands on this after enjoying absolutely incredible art archives such as Valkyria Chronicles Design Archive and all of the Udon published megaman artbooks only led to disappointment.
This is a book full of pretty pictures completely out of context with little, if any text accompanying them. Not necessarily bad, but definitely not what I was hoping I'd get for the price tag.
You'd think that with a title like "The Art of Building Worlds" the book would offer more insight into the creative processes of Bungie and 343's incredible artists as they create and design the stunning worlds of the Halo universe, but it ends up little more than a picture book.
Great if you want a collection of pretty pictures, but not so much if you want a little more out of your art books.
