"Beautifully rendered illustrations that cover characters, elements, and the city itself..flanked by facts and descriptions of the thoughts that went into the designs. If you love behind-the-scenes stuff and Assassin's Creed, then this book is for you." - Brutal Gamer gift guide "The Art of Assassin's Creed Syndicate features a lot of gorgeous painted artwork and will be a delight for lovers of the video game series, painted art, and late 1800s industrial England." - Die Hard Game Fan "It is a pleasure to read" - Artbook Passion "A beautiful coffee table book" - Irate Gamer "Each of the books' 192 pages is absolutely covered in gloriously bleak artwork covering the many boroughs that make up the world of Syndicate. You'll also find plenty of fascinating concept art and early renderings of the iconic Assassin's gear as it shifted to a fittingly industrialized Steampunk -inspired aesthetic over the course of the game's two-year development cycle." - Hey Poor Player "Gives us a detailed look at how the visuals of the game came together." - Aint it Cool Gift Guide "Beautifully rendered illustrations that cover characters, elements, and the city itself coat the heavy-stock pages and are flanked by facts and descriptions of the thoughts that went into the designs. If you love behind-the-scenes stuff and Assassin's Creed, then this book is for you." - Brutal Gamer "If you are a fan of the game, or just a fan of gorgeous concept art, this book continues a string of amazing collections from Titan Books." - Gaming Trend "A beautiful book that would fit into any gamer's library." - Gamers Sphere "The overall book is very detailed and interested to read, especially for fans of the AC series. It offers a full view of the major aspects of the game and it's interesting to see some of the original concept work and how much development went into things many fans may look at as simple minutiae of a hit game" - Entertainment Buddha
