It really gives you a new appreciation for a game." - Nerdology "The Art of Watch_Dogs beautifully shows off the gorgeous artwork we've all been teased for the last couple of years.

It gives a lot of great insight on the art, characters, and locations in the game and will likely bring attention to details you may have never noticed. The overall look and quality of the book is what I've come to expect from Titan Books." - Game Cavern "This book is what I have come to expect from anything put out by Titan Books. Well constructed, well thought out and worth the $30 price tag" - SteamFirst "I'm impressed with the calibre of the book's presentation and its overall style." - Hey Poor Player
