Art of Bioshock Infinite (Art Book)

The artists meticulously explored many aspects of character design and concept creation, from Elizabeth's costume to Songbird's mechanical design and the vigors themselves.

Many of the concepts are excellent, such as the terrifying enemies of Columbia including an evil toymaker, mutilated people caught in the tears, and flying Big Daddies.

From the first cuts to the final drafts, The Art of Bioshock Infinite shows how Bioshock could have been a very different game in it's earlier stages. Frustrating in a sense, but perhaps for the better considering how the game turned out.

With an introduction by Kevin Levine, the game's creative director, there isn't a whole lot of reading to be done here other than extremely brief explanations on some pages about what the artwork is. While this is primarily an artbook, I would have appreciated a bit more depth to it, accompanying the pages of pages of imagery here. I probably would have been more wowed if I had received this book in hardcover format, but alas, one cannot complain when awarded a Netgalley even in mobi format.

I'd recommend this artbook to hardcore fans of Bioshock Infinite who wish to explore the world a bit further, and perhaps budding artists or game designers, but the audience is probably limited to that.

I probably wouldn't have had the chance to check out this game companion if not for the galley, so thank you to Diamond Book Distributors and Netgalley for this review copy. Because Irrational games didn't have to stick to the rapture concept, it makes for some truly amazing and diverse art and whilst I love the game it makes you wonder what bioshock infinite could have been in an alternate universe.

I especially love the really dark and gritty concepts.

For fans of the game, art or both I would say that this is a must. Harry Potter. Popular Features. New Releases.
