Batman: Arkham Universe: The Ultimate Visual Guide Reviews
I've been a big fan of the 'Batman: Arkham' games since 'Asylum' was first released in 2009, and have followed the story of the series very closely. I was looking forward to this book, hoping it would give me some insight into the world of the games that I could not glean simply from playing them multiple times. Alas, I was disappointed. As another reviewer has already noted, the book is filled with low-quality in-game pictures and promo art, and limits itself to briefly summarizing the stories of the four games, hitting all the main points but not elaborating on anything interesting. The book features little to none of the amazing concept art for the games, and fails to reveal anything that anyone who has played the games doesn't already know. For example, both 'City' and 'Knight' feature short stories, unlocked by solving the Riddler's riddles, that give background information about the characters, the world, and the story of the games; very little of these stories make into into the Guide.
Now what are you doing here right now? Huh?! Oh, you haven't decided to purchase this yet? Alright, I'll give you a pass this time, just don't let it happen again, ya hear? ;`)
The book is filled with tons of information and is a sweet book for any batman fan, but there are a few issues I have with this book. For one several of the pictures are terrible ingame pictures with horrible quality. I find it hard to believe they couldn't contact WB or rocksteady for better photos. Secondly I feel there could be a lot more detail about the story of the series. It seems they gave a brief synopsis of each game. Overall it's a great book for characters of the game series I just feel it didn't add anything I didn't already know.
Excellent work, both amazon and seller, exact arrival, great product quality and fit exactly as indicated by the seller. 5 stars.
Product excellent delivered quickly.
Very nice book. I found it to be a great coffee table book. It doesn't go into great detail on any one thing but touches on a great many things in a nice way. Well put together and beautiful. One of the better books of this nature.
Gift for my son. He loves it.
