The History of Sonic the Hedgehog (Pix 'n Love Editions)
But if you're a Sonic game fan, I highly recommend this book! Oct 12, RetroSonic22X rated it it was amazing. Jan 23, Elaine Will rated it liked it. A pretty fun coffee table book about the history of the Sonic game series.
I really enjoyed reading the interviews with Yuji Naka, Naoto Oshima and Takashi Iizuka, as well as the extremely in-depth development history of the character and his very first game. The rest of the book is a bit of a mixed bag.

I'm not sure that we really needed character profiles, and it's pretty hilarious that some of these profiles refer to Sonic 4: Episode Metal, when that game was never even released! I also would A pretty fun coffee table book about the history of the Sonic game series.
I also would have liked to have seen sections on the comics and cartoons, although I understand why they would want to focus mostly on the games. One inaccuracy I noticed: Amy Rose is actually an Easter egg on the sound test screen and was never planned as a playable character, and "the mysterious Wechnia" is just a name given by fans to a glitched character thought to be the remains of Tails. Yup, I'm a huuuuuge nerd!
Jun 25, sayguh rated it it was amazing.
Wow, the author really wen't deep on this one! Lots of awesome information about the origins of Sonic and the ups and downs of his 25 year video game career: I'll always have a soft spot for Sonic. Aug 28, Craig Baughan rated it really liked it.
Whilst being a somewhat big Sonic fan the book does quite a thorough job of his history.
It is however biased towards ever Sonic game being good which honestly just is not the case. A good coffee table book or something only for the fans. Dec 22, Roger Leonhardt rated it it was amazing.
Gaming icon Sonic the Hedgehog marks 25 years with limited-edition art book
To review a book about Sonic the Hedgehog, is is out of my norm, but I could not resist. Sonic has always been a favorite. My son and I have been gamers for years. It started with Mario 64 and kept growing from there.
Anyone who loved Mario would sooner or later fall for Sonic. I really enjoyed this book. It is a page celebration of Sonic's 20th birthday.

Each chapter shows graphics from different games and discusses how the games developed. It is packed with many antidotes and stories about h To review a book about Sonic the Hedgehog, is is out of my norm, but I could not resist. It is packed with many antidotes and stories about how the games came to fruition and some that did not.
We see the struggles developers had with each other and the way it added to the final game development. It is very interesting to read about the glitches they had to deal with. Even though I already knew a lot about Sonic, I learned much more. Here are a few spoilers.
During development, the original game was so fast it mad you sick. They had trouble with sonic crashing through the loops instead of spinning around them.
Originally Sonic had a girlfriend named Madonna yes she was named after the singer The last half of the book includes interviews with the developers and their thoughts on how Sonic has changed over the years. There are hundreds of great pictures and even glimpses of games that never made it.
If you are a Sonic fan or just curious about his history, I highly recommend this book. Read it, then go out and download a game and enjoy. I give it 5 out of 5 stars. Aug 05, Cortenator added it. Very interesting, so much we don't know about sonic, but now we do.

You'll also find character profiles, promotional artwork, rare concept art, and a detailed look at the origins of the "Blue Blur". Discovered by Sonictoast. Right off the get go, the inside covers have great classic artwork of Sonic and the gang. Every page is stunning with great collages of official SEGA artwork and bit graphics from the video games.
It is almost worth getting just for the pictures. But the content is amazing too.
It has a brief 8 page Sega history lesson before Sonic, another 6 pages of history about the creation of Sonic, then a full 83 pages covering Sonic's full history from Then there is a profile for every Sonic Game. Every Spin-off and arcade and handheld. The games they do not include profiles for are the compilation games and games released in "Sonic4 Ep.
There is also Profiles for the modern cast of characters, including all three chaotix, all three babylon rogues and a lot of Sonic Adventure characters like Chaos, Tikal and E Gamma.
Strangely there is no profile for Omega. Omega has a bigger part than E did so that's strange Each profile also has a full list of every game that character has appeared in. The lists even includes "Sonic 4 Ep. The end has some cool concept art for a number of villains and badniks from the whole series.
However it is not perfect. There are a hand-full of errors. But then there are other things like showing Sonic Mcdonalds toys in a Sonic Happy Meal box or saying that "Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog" was a French series that debuted in We all know it's American and came out in These appear to be a summary of an episode of the show that you can read.
These are smaller then comic books, but about the same shape.
They have nice glossy covers and pictures inside. Naturally, the words are big for easy readers. There is a third one on the way "Aqua Planet by Charlotte Fullerton" As you can see, the books have a design-style that will run through all of them. The back covers are the same, except the summary. The inside pages are all quite similar to the one shown. If you see this one, then you've pretty much seen them all, except for the stories. In the year of Sonic's 25th Anniversary comesFriend or Foe?
Lots of awesome information about the origins of Sonic and the ups and downs of his 25 year video game career: Oct 12, RetroSonic22X rated it it was amazing.
So, like, maybe something that was published only once in a gaming magazine before the internet, or similar early pieces that were only in select places that people may not know of Once available, this book will appear in the Gear Store because site will have it.
Nate Smith-Awesome rated it it was amazing Oct 21, It DOES have unpublished 'to be stock art', that never got to be stock.
