After so many moons of waiting and waiting for this book to come out it is finally here! To put into perspective how long I've been waiting for this book to come out I believe that the first pre-order I put with Amazon.com was on February 20th, 2007. That's over a year ago! I can safely say that this book delivers on all fronts and is well worth the wait.

This book is 176 pages of filled with great art and information about the Megaman Zero Series. It provides inside information on the characters of the series as well as how some came about and more information about them that might not necessarily have been included in the games. It even provides great insight into characters that were cut from the final product of said series. Great art, great insight into the series and it's creators, what more could you ask for?

There are actually two things that I could ask for and those come in the forms of errors. On page 169 leading into page 170 there is a sentence that seems to have been cut off. "Since we had left the first game with such an open ending, I think we manage to pull of the..." Pull what off? Pull of the correct way to open the second game? Pull of the best way to start the second game? What is it? As soon as you hit page 170 a new question is asked and the previous sentence is never finished.

The second error comes in on page 153; there is a picture that was reused from page 152. The picture in question fits perfectly in 152 but not in 153 which a different scene is playing out entirely. You're reading scene after scene then you stop abruptly at this scene that doesn't even belong there!

These two errors make me feel a bit disappointed in the book.

Mega Man, in all its forms, is truly a spectacular gaming franchise. A lot of aspects about the series are truly iconic, its extremely charming, stylistic art design not least of all. The Mega Man Zero series is no exception. I personally love the Zero series for many reasons, but one of the most compelling aspects for me has always been its spectacular art. To be able to have a book with the sole purpose of showcasing that art is truly a brilliant idea.

It's pretty interesting to see progression in a gaming series' art direction. In the Classic Mega Man series, you had more of an old-school, classical cartoon anime vibe, with Mega Man X taking it in a slightly more detailed, hardcore direction. Zero continues that trend, but instead of just adding a bit more edge and mature details to an already established design, it literally redefined the very core of the art design itself, taking it into radically new directions. It definitely still retains the spirit of Mega Man though. Personally, I find the art of the Mega Man Zero series to not only be some of the best in the Mega Man name, but in video games as a whole. It's that good.

The organization of the book is intuitive and the lay-out is quite pleasing. It's organized by categories, like main characters, bosses, enemies, cyber elves, extras, etc. The characters are truly brimming with life and personality. The enemy designs are super compelling.

Next is the Enemies section, one of the most completed of the book, that contains all the bosses and sub bosses of the series, all of the them separated by game.All the bosses have their official artwork, a few sketches and some notes from the designers, as well as screen shots of them using their special skills and their death animations.This section also includes all the normal enemies, their artworks and in game images and death animations.
