6/10
I give this book the current rating because I expected more from it.
When I brought it I was expecting a beautiful art book like all my others. When I researched it I was under the impression that it would hold more than the collector�?�¢??s edition you could receive with the game. Sadly I found out that all it was, was a blown up version of the little art book you can receive with the game. Was there anything new in it? Its possible some more armour sketches where added in there but I don�?�¢??t think that was the case.
If you already own the collectors edition of the game, you already have this book.

That been said the art work isn�?�¢??t bad, it's just there's not a massive amount in this book like you'd receive buying the "Odd world inhabitants" or "Resident evil 5" or even the "Masse effect universe" books. Obviously this one has nowhere near as many pages as those 3 titles. But it lacks.... depth. Most Art books I buy, to be considered good, they need to show some of the design choices made. not just fancy looking art that doesn�?�¢??t show anything else outside of the game. Pre sketches, design faze�?�¢??s, environmental drawings and planning. These things develop into beautiful worlds that create their work. But sadly this book didn�?�¢??t really have much of that at all.

The book is Pretty, it's just not as impressive as it could have been. If you�?�¢??re a massive fan of the game (Like me) and you don�?�¢??t own the collectors edition you may very well find something new here. It may not be perfect but there is some charm to their art work.
But if you do all ready own that little book, you�?�¢??re better off giving this one a miss.
