"Finding quality art books for anything related to pop culture is fairly difficult, and video games in particular suffer. Titan actually cares, and that care shows in their work. Just compare it to any art book from a 'Limited Edition' game bundle. Titan’s printing is much better and the collection is much more complete; their art books are books in their own right ... one of the better gaming art books available." – Uproxx’s Gamma Squad
