"Ultimately, a flick through [EXPOSÉ 7] or a thorough rummage will reap equal rewards, as the staggering array of imaginative, varied artwork from the best brains of fantasy and sci-fi art continue to provide both eye candy and a more substantially nourishing visual feast."
ImagineFX magazine, EXPOSÉ 7 review
"The Art of God of War III really is a spectacular compilation of artwork, as well as a brisk, intriguing read if you are at all interested in learning about the art design process behind your favorite mythological action-adventure epic. Perhaps the most flattering comment I can pay to this book is that, as soon as I flipped past the last page, I was immediately inspired to play the game again. And as Iíve continued to replay it Iíve found myself appreciating it as a true work of art more than I ever did before. That alone makes The Art of God of War III a must read if you ask me."

"If you're interested in the artistic process behind today's big game titles, or just fancy gawping at stunning digital art, this is an irresistible buy." 5/5
