A brilliant collection of artwork from both the finished game and unused material. Character and enemy designs, beautiful artwork of Columbia, Vigors and propaganda posters and advertisments from the game are all found here for our enjoyment.

While I'd definitely recommend the book to anyone (BioShock fans in particular), I warn anyone that playing 'BioShock Infinite' will evoke mixed reactions to this book. On one hand, you get an appreciation of how different the finished game is to the original 'BioShock', despite the fact that the similar starting point brought out in the initial designs and concept in the book. On the other hand, you become somewhat frustrated that the creative process which led to some great concepts in the finalised game is not covered here. For instance, I love the Luteces and think they were an innovative element, but they only get one image each in an entire book which are not even labelled as such. I couldn't help but compare to another Dark Horse art book I own which told me so much about the creative process. To add insult to injury, Ken Levine wrote a great introduction which just scratched the surface of this aspect.

So it's still a brilliant book overall with stunning artwork, but could have been a bit better if the creative process were described in more detail.
