Reviews

"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.
