– The Gaming Review
Enhanced features don't work
The enhanced features are buggy and you can't play the videos at all, fix this and it would definitely be five stars
Very cool book
It has 1 halo song constantly playing which is cool but
A) its only one song(not too much of a problem).
B) the song plays through the videos completely ruining them unless you like to watch (not hear) the artists talk.
Overall it is a very cool book. The concept art is amazing.
