    One thought on “Halo Encyclopedia: The Definitive Guide to the Halo Universe”

    1. This book is okay. I really enjoy tomes like this which detail an imaginary universe and history, all the cool worldbuilding stuff that goes into imaginary worlds.I grew up reading things like The Silmarillion but I really liked the ones where they combined art with text, such as The Terran Trade Authority books from the late '70s like Spacecraft: 2000 To 2100 AD and Great Space Battles, as well as the The Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe. I still read RPG Sourcebooks because I enjoy the [...]

    2. If there is ANYTHING you want to know about the Halo Universe, this is your definitive guide. It holds great information and greater insight than the games and books were ever able to give. I wonder what will happen with the release of "Halo:Reach" this coming Fall. This encyclopedia will already be out of date. I understand there is a Forerunner series coming out soon, too. If that is true, it will be interesting to see if they create an updated version of this encyclopedia.

    3. This was an interesting read for anyone that has played any of the Halo games. Anything you might be interested in knowing is in this encyclopedia and there is a lot of nice Halo themed artwork to look at.The writing isn't Shakespeare, and it sometimes feels like later entries are just rehashing earlier ones, but it was interesting. It would be even better if you could get this at your local library since it is pretty expensive for what you get.

    4. This is the greatest and least boring encyclopedia I have ever read (not that I've read many encyclopedias). With everything from Johnson's missions before he met 117 to the details of the Covenant Hierarchy to the Forerunner-Flood war, and some hints of why the prophets cant activate the rings themselves, and why they have to capture a human to do it for them, and why 343 Guilty Spark tried to kill you. Hint: its like insanity for AIs we all knew Sparky was nuts.

    5. Very informative, although an updated version will be needed very soon; especially with the Forerunner book trilogy finishing up (Greg Bear), the newer post-Halo 3 book trilogy (Karen Traviss), and the release of Halo 4 coming in November.

    6. My nephew likes killing me in Halo so I got this for us to look at. He loved it, and it has so much information here, great pictures and wow so much work went into this. Dont think it will stop him killing me though!

    7. Everything you ever wanted to know about the Halo universe is in here. As a fan of Scifi, I find my attention is dreawn to the methology of the univrse the material is set is as well as the story itself. I loved it!

    8. A truly amazing, beautifully illustrated, inspiring and stunning work. Filled with all you could and would want to know about that galaxy not so far away.

    9. Great Art! Great background! But got a little repetitive after a while. Still a great read for Halo fans.
