It contains the concept art for the characters, creatures, zombies, environment as well as interviews and some discarded visual ideas. The art comes in the form of sketches, coloured illustrations and 3D computer graphics. The high resolution in-game character profiles look really good.
For fans of anything zombies, these book has plenty to delight you. The designs for the undead and creatures are very cool. There are worm infested zombies, rotting dogs, plenty of tentacled disgusting lifeforms and gruesome mutations. This world is pretty sick.
The chapters follow the game play, presenting art for the areas and then the enemies there. Compared to the characters, there are less art for the locations although there are some storyboards and right at the end are some photos of actors playing the main characters in front of green screens.
Recommended to gamers, sci-fi and game artists.
(There are more pictures of the book on my blog. Just visit my Amazon profile for the link.)
There is commentary from the artists, which is always interesting, and some of the most intriguing bits are in the environment chapters. Huge portions of level concepts were unused, and some of these are brilliant.
On the whole, a fine, well put together piece of work. Just don't expect a lot of large drawings of characters and creatures. Or cool full page paintings of game situations (there are a few of them in the front). Most of the real estate is taken up by images of in-game CGI models.
You can hear the crackling sound upon first flip-thru
when I started reading to mid section, all the pages started to fell apart chunk by chunk.
As for the art content, if you like this game's design work, you will love this book
Word of warning, the spine is very delicate, do not bend it too far back. I noticed the binding and could see the gap between pages. This is not the fault of the seller though.
