Format: Taschenbuch
Länge: 0:37 Minuten
The Art and Making of Star Wars Force Unleashed brings you behind the scenes into the game development process, while staying close to artists' drawing boards.

This book is choked full with breathtaking concept art, character designs, diary entries and screenshots from the game. It features over 300 pieces of art work in 168 pages. On two pages are pasted paper pockets, with each containing 5 character cards.

If you've owned the "art of" series for the Star Wars movies, expect the same high quality environment paintings. But this one goes up one notch with beautiful page layouts. It's the art magazine type of layout, so the every page design is essentially art in itself. Great effort from the book designers.

The 6 chapters in the book explains the game creation process in depth. That's from the development of a concept, to the pitch and approval stage, next to character studies, then environment and finally the technology behind.

There are lots of nitty gritty details that you won't read on Internet interviews. The authors bring you to the cutting floor and let you read all about the discarded ideas.

After reading the book, you'll literally feel like you've worked with these people (most probably as an intern).

For Star Wars fans, you have no reasons not to get this book. For people interested in concept design and animation, this book has lots of insight for you. This book is a great source of inspiration.

Be careful of the binding though. The part where the cover meets page 1 seems like they will come apart in the future. Easily fixed by pasting some clear tape to fix the problem before it develops.

1 von 1 Kunden fanden die folgende Rezension hilfreich Von Gudella am 29. September 2010
Format: Taschenbuch
166 Seiten vollgepackt mit allem, was man im dem Spiel zu sehen bekommt - und noch vieles mehr. Designstudien zu den Charakteren, Fahrzeugen und Planeten füllen einen Großteil des Buches. Dazu bekommt man noch Einblick in die verwendete Software, z.B. die Euphora-Engine.

Als kleinen Kritikpunkt muss ich die (fehlende) Helligkeit der Bilder nennen. Es unterstreicht zwar schön den düsteren Charakter des Spiels, aber der Großteil der Seiten sind zur Hälfte dunkel bis schwarz. Da die Buchseiten zwar nicht hochglanz, aber doch reflektierend sind, muss man das Buch im richtigen Winkel zur Lichtquelle halten, um Details erkennen zu können.

Weitaus größere Kritik muss sich die Verarbeitung gefallen lassen. Nachdem das Buch ein halbes Jahr bei mir im Schrank stand, habe ich es herausgeholt und ein wenig darin geblättert. Ich gehe wirklich sorgsam mit Büchern um, aber bei diesem löst sich nach kürzester Zeit der Umschlagrücken. Das dürfte nicht passieren.

Von den ersten Entwürfen, über Produktionszeichnungen und Geschichtenentwicklung wird in ungeahntem Detailreichtum alles beschrieben was der Star Wars Fans so wissen muss. Das Art-Book reiht sich nahtlos in die anderen großartigen Art-Books von Star Wars ein ud sollte in keiner Sammlung fehlen.

If the game is as good as this book, we're all in for a treat. 20. August 2008
Von K. Dolen - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I recently watched The Clones Wars and thought it was average; it felt more like an homage, than the real deal. And although I enjoyed the prequels, my faith in "a galaxy far, far away" had slowly waned until I got this book. The imagery is stunning and true to form; it looks and feels like a perfect "bridge" between Ep 3 & 4.

Clearly is takes on a new realm in the Star Wars universe - "the force unleashed" but the designers give reasons why we have never seen someone of this power before; all conveyed through hundreds of amazing, beautifully presented images.

From concept to completion, this book tells the story of every facet of the games development including original titles and designs. In honesty, there was only one design (a single page) that I thought looked too far left of center. Other than that, this book is one of the finest "making of" books I have bought in years.

For any Star Wars fan - or someone interested in the tireless amount of effort that goes into making a game - this book is a must.

Hope this helps...

Behind the Scenes 25. August 2008
Von J. Mendoza - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
It's very interesting to read just how much time and effort goes into making a game, specially one within the Star Wars Universe. From all the different story concepts, to deciding on the timeline of the game, to which characters would make an appearance.

The artwork is nothing short of amazing, with all the different concepts for the Jedi characters, to the look of the Apprentice, to the characters that were not included in the game.

The book of course details the finished game as well, discussing in length the plot of the finished game, so if you don't want to be spoiled then wait until the game comes out to read it.
An essential addition to the personal collections of dedicated Star Wars fans 8. September 2008
Von Midwest Book Review - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Star Wars is a cultural phenomenon of global proportions. What began as inspired and inspiring science fiction action/adventure movie trilogy has expanded into novels, comics, video games, fan conventions, and memorabilia that seems to increase in popularity every year. The collaborative work of Star War's enthusiasts W. Haden Blackman and Brett Rectork, "The Art And Making Of Star Wars Force Unleashed" is a profusely illustrated compendium of information about the creation of the 'Star Wars: Force Unleashed' video game that takes place within the Star Wars universe between the fall of the Republic and the rise of the Rebel Alliance. The cutting edge of game design as applied to this Star Wars theme entertainment is fully described and illustrated with more than 300 conceptual artworks. Readers are provided with a virtual tour of the development process, provided with details of unused game concepts, story meetings with George Lucas as well as commentaries and interviews with other key members of the video game design teams. Enhanced with ten Character Cards, "The Art And Making Of Star Wars Force Unleashed" will proved to be an essential addition to the personal collections of dedicated Star Wars fans and enthusiasts as the Star Wars phenomena continues to unfold as a multi-faceted, multi-platform, multi-format entertainment.
Great book! 27. September 2010
Von Philip Mars - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
If you have ever played The Force Unleashed you know that this is the best Star Wars material released in the last 30 years. Although Genndy Tartakovsky's Clone Wars was also great, The Force Unleashed was closer to the original trilogy.

This book is perfect for anyone interested in games, Star Wars or concept art.

Actually, I took the name with a little drawback (the art AND MAKING of the...) because I'm not that much interested in game creation. If you're like me, don't worry: the games features, development, production, character developments, voice/acting, staff meeting reports, concept art - and I mean, A LOT of those - and also a chapter about game development and technology - this the least interesting for me, but it's there if you want to check.

One of the things that strikes me the most is that they reveal what they were planning before the actual game came to be. The books features many drafts of stories that were considered but not developed... It makes one wonder what the new trilogy would be like if Mr. Lucas had had such a team with him.

Highly recommended!
