Diehard GameFAN: Capcom 30th Anniversary Character Encyclopedia Book Review

DHGF: Each of the 204 characters in the book gets a full page to themselves. Half the page is art work and half the page is a written biography of them. That does mean venerable characters like Ken Masters have as much information as newcomers like Piers Nivans, or that characters with a long, rich back history like Mega Man have their bio truncated while the book obviously pads bios for obscure or barely used characters like Harman Smith from Killer 7. While some readers may get their ire up from the big names having to share the same amount of space with the midcarders or B-listers, I actually liked that all characters were treated equally, as it makes them all seem equally important. Who knows – perhaps someone new to one of these characters will be inspired to check their game out due to this treatment. (Capcom, Culture, Industry) -
