"You will be amazed at the level of detail they discuss in the book." - Don’t Forget Your Towel 

"The Art of Titanfall is worth picking up for the fantastic artwork alone. That’s probably the case for any art book, but this one in particular ticks all of the boxes for someone who likes military SF." - SF Signal

"This book is spectacular. The breathtaking views, up close details of the Titans and the back story are captivating." - Geek Dad

"For an inside look at how this amazing world was put together, crack the cover of The Art of Titanfall." - Red Orbit

"The book features a nice thick hard cover, dust jacket, and thick gloss pages that just scream quality. This is what we have come to expect with the publisher Titan Books which with every title they seem to one up the last." - Urban Vinyl Daily 

"The actual book itself is slick and nice to look at, like those expensive tomes you see at Barnes and Noble full of high quality reproductions of famous paintings. If someone breaks into your house and this is all you have to defend yourself, you stand a fighting chance. You could definitely bludgeon an intruder into unconsciousness with this, and there’s a distinct possibility it could stop at least a small-caliber bullet, it’s rather substantial. If you’re a gamer, especially one particularly excited for Titanfall, this book is definitely worth your time." - Giant Freakin Robot

"Proving to be an essential read for those looking to get their fill on the TitanFall universe, as well as being a great companion to the game itself, The Art of TitanFall is an amazing piece of work that delivers on the message of what Joel Emslie, Vince Zampella, and the entire team of Respawn Entertainment are hoping to give the players once they experience the game for themselves. This isn’t a book filled with 200 pages of sketches displaying what worked and what didn’t work, this is a journey that can only be realised through the turn of the page and the press of the button." - Gaming Bolt 

"You really won’t get a good sense of Titanfall’s massive scale and rich universe until flipping through these pages." - MP1st 

"Overall it is a very impressive collection and one that any gamer I think would enjoy. I’ve loved Titan Publishing’s art-collections in the past, and with such a terrific title being the centerpiece of another new art-book, I would say collecting it is an easy decision to make." - The Slanted

"The Art of TITANFALL is the image of manufactured perfection. The size alone is impressive. It walks the fine line between an art book and a strategy guide with finesse. Giving just enough information to have you begging for more. I definitely recommend that every fan of TITANFALL go out and pick up a copy of this book. It is definitely worth the investment." - Active Respawn

"Whether you like sci-fi artwork, giant robots, the game or anything in-between, you’ll find this is well worth picking up and adding to your collection." - Diehard GameFAN

"The Art of Titanfall reminds of those Japanese technical art books for Gundam and Macross, because I grew up with anime and just loved the technical robot designs and details.  You don’t have to be a fan of the videogame Titanfall to enjoy this art book.  If you like military costumes, mecha designs, exotic future sci-fi city landscapes, and of course the weapons, this book will be a solid reference book in your library and an inspiration for creative artists." - Retrenders
