Good, but not "ultimate"
June 29, 2016
This is a good, though incomplete, encyclopedia to the Minecraft universe. The writing is solid and gives you a good understanding of each topic, and the illustrations appear to be taken from the game directly and accurately show what each topic looks like, however, the low gloss pages mute the color and contrast, compared to how things appear in the actual game.
The missing items are mostly the things you collect, which are pretty important. If you read the entire encyclopedia you *will* find references to some of the items here and there. But for a book that touts itself as ultimate it is anything but, and I was a little disappointed that I could not find topics for many things my son was interested in learning more about. But I guess there's always the Internet.
