The Art of Gears of War 3 Book Review
We dont only just review games here at GhostStorm, we review other things too sometimes and this time its a book called The Art of Gears of War 3 which was provided by the lovely folks at Ballistic Publishing. Im not lying when I say that this book is like nothing I have ever seen before. It is just 320 pages of pure Gears of War goodness.
The Art of Gears of War 3 takes you behind the scenes of one of Epic Games’ biggest releases. By doing so it features character, environment, monster, weapons, and vehicle concept art and production art in comprehensive galleries. The book shows some of the unseen art that makes Gears of War 3 one of the most memorable games that you will play. It also features commentary from the creative team at Epic Games, and shares insights from the game’s creators, making it an invaluable resource for devotees of the game, as well as new converts. Such as me.
What I liked was that you can clearly see so much work has gone into each individual image. They are painted with high levels of detail and everything looks gritty real and has weight. The characters and monsters are bulky but always look believable. There are many variations including discarded concepts. The best ones are then chosen for production.
Here are just some images of what you could expect from the book:
It also shares commentary and insights from the creative team at Epic Games – making it an invaluable resource for devotees of the game, as well as artists, developers or gamers, who want to learn how a big game title is developed. It really is a great item to own to go along side the games you already have.
