This book has great quality paper alongside highly detailed art that promt the game The Last of Us 2. Some art included within this book show a much different beginning than the one we saw first.
If you ever purchase this book, take a look at page 159, where Abby wouldn't have killed Joel right away but infiltrate his life. The art sparks many different ideas as to how the game would have looked like and played out, however this idea was only an initial which was dropped.
The concept art we find within this book has details as to what was the initial idea, right next to it we would see art from the game at hand. I have to personally say that concept art for Ellie and Jesse show the most change from the starting idea to the end result.
There's not much to mention other than the art for the background, art that inspired every location the game takes you, such art shows in detail how each place thrived and continued 'living' even after the apocalypse. Not to mention the amount of design that went into the background such as the shops we encounter within the game (cups, flyers, logos and so on).
I included two photos of the book, but I won't include any photos of the art within it. FYI, this book presents somewhat gruesome art too.
This is a great art book for a simply beautiful game. However if you have been trying your best to avoid spoilers, this book has detail regarding EVERYTHING that happens in the game. Highly recommend for collectors and avid fans of the series, people studying video game art/design will also enjoy this.
Viene acompañado de ilustraciones y comentarios que ayudan a comprender más a fondo lo que hay detrás del diseño de personajes, enemigos y escenarios del juego. Es una adquisición obligada para revivir todos y cada uno de esos momentos de tensión y rabia que nos hizo pasar esta joya de la Industria.
Gostei bastante, impressão perfeita, páginas de alta qualidade, mas, em relação ao artbook do primeiro jogo, parece que a encadernação regrediu, estando um pouco duro de virar e manter as páginas e a capa poderia ter mais detalhes do que o predominante branco. Fora isso, perfeito.
I gave it 3 stars because it is a well made book with lots of insight into the creation of the world of TLOU. However, I personally found the art very lacklustre, lots of greyscale images and heavily stylised drawings. There's an abundance of environment art which i usually like, but they're mostly dimly lit, moody scenes where it's impossible to pick out any detail. In the "Designing Character" pages, there's no progression to the final design, apart from Ellie and Joel. I would have liked to see a lot more storyboarding and layout, and I would have preferred the overall style to be closer to that of the game. I found it to be disappointing overall.
Das Buch ist ein sehr schönes und von außen schlicht gehaltenes Artbook. Das Buch beinhaltet dabei mehrere wunderschöne Bilder, die einen genaueren Einblick in die Welt und Level von "The Last of Us Part II" liefern. Dabei folgt das Buch dem chronologischen Ablauf des Spiels und man bekommt zu jedem Abschnitt des Spiels mehrere Bilder und Konzeptzeichnungen präsentiert. Qualitativ sind die Bilder über jeden Zweifel erhaben. Es zeigt sich hierbei, dass Naughts Dog große Mühen in die künstlerische Konzeption der Welt und Charaktere gelegt hat, welche sie auch, meiner Meinung nach, mehr als gelungen im Spiel umsetzten konnten. Fazit: Nicht nur für Fans, sondern für alle, die qualitativ hochwertige Artbook ihr Eigen nennen möchten, zu empfehlen.
The book offers little to no insight of the art team thought process. This book doesn't express the passion put into the game. It is more a walk through the game, resembling a comic book. Disappointing. Great game not so great art book.
A rather lovely book for the game. The art showcased in this book is absolutely fantastic as you would expect and the amount of content is well worth the price. I would highly recommend this alone just for the sake of the concept and presentation.
