D+PAD Magazine - Halo: The Great Journey – The Art of Building Worlds - Reviewed

D+PAD Magazine writes:

The front cover of Titan Books’ ‘Halo: The Great Journey – The Art of Building Worlds’ sports a small sticker depicting the Master Chief’s iconic Spartan helmet, underneath which are etched two short words – ’10 Years’ – that hold a great deal of significance; Halo: Combat Evolved turning a decade old feels like a genuine landmark, not just for the series, but for videogaming as a whole. Love it or loathe it, the series has arguably done more than any other to shape the tastes of a generation of gamers; it brought PC-quality first-person shooting into the living-room, cemented the popularity of online multiplayer and crafted an epic space opera of proportions challenging even George Lucas at his most imaginative (or, dare we say it, convoluted…). It is Halo’s world – and the series legacy – that The Art of Building Worlds sets about exploring through the visionary artwork that help shape it (Culture, Halo, Halo 2, Halo 3, Halo 3: ODST, Halo: Reach, Xbox 360) -
