I usually don't take the time to review artbooks, especially those for a series as extensive and venerable as Resident Evil, however, the appeal of the location and use of color in Resident Evil 5 drew me ever closer to purchasing its artbook. The majority of the book consists of concept art--early through final stages--for characters, enemies, weapons/vehicles, and locations, with extensive notes (in English!) from both the art director and production director. As opposed to other artbooks for the RE series, this book focuses more on the direction the art and ideas took during production (rather than just the final pieces that ended up in the game), and often includes various pictures of scrapped ideas and different versions of the final product. In fact, an entire section at the end of the book is dedicated to "unused materials" like sketches, storyboards, creatures, and locations that didn't make the cut. Yet a book of this length still comes with flaws (though not in content, in my opinion), and the only grief I have is with the binding and cover. Because there are so many pages (208!), the soft-cover binding is beginning to come apart at both the top and bottom of the book, leaving a little gap between the binding glue and the pages. I've taken to opening the book and turning the pages with great care, since I'm not sure how long the glue will last in this condition, and though the pages are stitched together in segments, I'm afraid the stitching won't be enough to hold the entire book together should the glue fail. I'd like to see books of this caliber published in hardback because of this fatal flaw. All publishing issues aside, the content is ultimately what I'm here for, and I am greatly impressed and satisfied with this artbook; I would absolutely recommend it for any fans of the game and series, especially those who are more interested in background and concept art for the game!
