This publication delivers what it sets out to do, but I can’t help but feel like it is a wasted opportunity. It’s not that the content is bad, it just feels like the bare minimum. I would love to have seen more information about each character, including the names of the original artists and designers, as well as a collection of the sprites and textures from different releases of each game. For example, to be able to see each incarnation of Ryu and Chun-Li from every Street Fighter would have been particularly interesting to see. Or can you imagine a to-scale panel of every Mega Man sprite ever used? Obviously, this would have driven the cost of the book up, but this release is not for casual fans, it is for people obsessed with Capcom. I would have gladly paid more for a higher quality release.
Luckily, the price is more than commensurate with the content, and you will get a great deal if you grab a copy. Just don’t expect to have the de-facto reference material for Capcom characters.
The main problem with this book is that it is not what you would expect an encyclopedia to be. Each character is represented by a single page and then 2 or 3 paragraphs. There is a small section on each character page that tells you where you may have first seen the character as well as where you may have seen them most recently, but that is it when it comes to facts or data. The content is equally split between the famous and vanilla characters (1 page each). It is strange to see a single page devoted to a Capcom superstar like Chun-Li or Wesker sitting next to some character from a minor game from ages ago that you've probably never heard of. The issue isn't that these minor characters are included, but rather that there should be more information and details when it comes to characters who have been in more games and have much richer stories and legacies. If you were hoping to find your favorite character and find a trove of trivia, statistics, or even a list of each title they appear in...you are out of luck.
The above complaint is probably to be expected considering the breadth of the subject (there are a LOT of characters in this book). If this were a paperback copy at the same price this would be a 3 star book at best. Instead of a paperback book, though, the finished product is a very presentable hardcover book. The illustrations are very vibrant and high quality. It is a perfect coffee table book where you could easily flip through a few pages and read up on some of the good and not-so-good Capcom characters created over the past 30 years. I would have liked more content, but for the price there really are no substitutes at this time. 4 Stars.
The encyclopedia give you data info in alphabetic order of some of the most iconic characters of all time like Jill Valentine, Leon S. Kennedy , Chun-Li, Megaman, Viewtiful Joe & much more.
This Great hardcover book review info from well known game like Resident Evil, Street Fighter and much more to rare games like Midnight Wanderers & Zack & Wiki "which was an amazing game released on Nintendo Wii " .
A must have to understand the roots of one of the most successful & creative company in video game history and of course for any Capcom fan !
Neither. It's a big hard-back book with beautiful pages and paper, vivid colors that pop for every character. The selection of characters has also been outstanding.
Recommended for your coffee table!
