    [image error] (More pictures on my blog) Halo 4 is back with a bang and this is an excellent video game art book for it. It's a large 192-page hardcover published by Titan Books.

There's a good amount of environment paintings that look really great because they are printed so big — great for soaking in the ambiance. The environment paintings are easily the highlight of the book. I love the very physical look of the designs. And those with wide open spaces look majestic. Other concept art include designs for Master Chief, Cortana, Spartans, troops, Forerunners, weapons, vehicles and ships. They are all amazing and detailed. It will take a while to look through the art. There are several artbooks for Halo, and this is one of the best, and one of my 2012 favourite artbooks as well. Fantastic concept art book. Highly recommended for Halo fans.

    Me encanta. No tiene nada para leer, ciertamente, más que notitas técnicas, pero los artbooks siempre me han encantado. Divino.

    I'm saddened to say there's a clear reduction in focus going from this art book towards the Halo 5 art book. It's almost as if the team, during the Halo 4 production days, had a much better idea of what they wanted for the halo universe and the future of the saga. Or maybe this is just my idea, because it seems that the Halo 5 art book was simply thrown together compared to this one. Loved the small additions made by the wrists explaining their process and choices and design philosophy, though I I'm saddened to say there's a clear reduction in focus going from this art book towards the Halo 5 art book.

    In honor of the recent release of the Halo 4 game, I thought it only appropriate to review this amazing book today. I have been a HUGE fan of the Halo series, ever since the first game came out years ago. The action, the weapons, the combat...it is an amazing series that is beyond captivating. But it’s not just the actual game itself that pleases; the Halo universe is one of the most vivid and interesting locales in which to place a storyline. Such can be seen in the detail placed into the graph In honor of the recent release of the Halo 4 game, I thought it only appropriate to review this amazing book today. I have been a HUGE fan of the Halo series, ever since the first game came out years ago. The action, the weapons, the combat...it is an amazing series that is beyond captivating. But it’s not just the actual game itself that pleases; the Halo universe is one of the most vivid and interesting locales in which to place a storyline. Such can be seen in the detail placed into the graphics for each game. Halo 4 breaks new ground by giving much more detail in these graphics as well as a rich plot to go along with it. Thanks to Titan Books, fans like me can now revel in the concept art that helped bring Halo 4 to life. If you are any kind of fan of Halo, then this book is a must-buy for you. AWAKENING: THE ART OF HALO 4 takes you deep into the mindset of the designers at 343 Industries, and shows how their ideas evolved into the excellent game that was released just last week. With stunning imagery and exquisite detail, the concept art in this book will leave you almost as breathless as the game itself. The pictures are lavish and rich, portraying the new world and realm in which the Master Chief finds himself this time. And I have to say, these images are the very definition of beautiful. The imaginations involved with creating such complex yet lavish scenes must be staggeringly powerful. The fine folks at 343 Industries have raised the bar and set a new level of excellence with this work. AWAKENING: THE ART OF HALO 4 chronicles part of the work involved, by giving in-depth but short commentaries on each scene and the mentality behind it. Comparing the concept art to the scenes in the game (which I have done quite a bit) is a lot of fun. It’s very interesting to see how different the final graphics can turn out, even after being fleshed out with a brush. But nonetheless, the core elements in almost every scene are there and spring vividly to life. But aside from the visuals, AWAKENING: THE ART OF HALO 4 gives us a sneak-peek at new characters, creatures, and items that can be found in the game. The book also fleshes out existing characters and creatures by providing new, finer details to their images. This provides double the excitement, as it feels like visiting old friends who have changed due to time. AWAKENING: THE ART OF HALO 4 is an amazing book and it definitely belongs in your collection. Even if you are not a Halo fan, you should check this volume out, as it has some of the most amazing landscape artwork you’ll ever see. The images within its pages are inspiring and mesmerizing; and they might just convince you to play the game as well. Give this one a look.

    I've always enjoyed the Halo Universe, but have never been really fanatical about it. I'm not sure why that is, the fiction is very deep and well realized. In the future I do plan on getting into it quite a bit more. As for this book, it's high quality. Hardcover and with nice, heavy pages. It's full of concept art with commentary from the art directer. Many, many pieces I wish I could frame and put on my wall. It succeeds as an art book, it's full of pretty pictures.

    I enjoyed this book immensely!! I was going to the game but I don't have a x-box anymore so I can't play it. This book's title said it all. It was just art with small paragraphs here and there. I hope the Halo Encyclopedia will be updated to include Halo 4 along with some of the art from this book. I enjoyed this book immensely!!

    Awesome if you're a Halo fan. Potentially still interesting if you're a video game (or sci-fi/fantasy) art fan. Not of interest otherwise. Awesome if you're a Halo fan. Potentially still interesting if you're a video game (or sci-fi/fantasy) art fan. Not of interest otherwise.
