    Continues off of where the previous volume ends. Definitely some interesting insights into these three games, but I couldn’t help but finish wanting more, like there was something missing.

    To celebrate the twenty-fifth anniversary of Final Fantasy (2012), Square Enix in conjecture with Dark Horse had released the Final Fantasy Ultimania Archive, a three-volume set, chronicling all the main titles of Final Fantasy to date (Final Fantasy I–XIV). It has finally been translated into English with the second volume collecting the next three games in the series (Final Fantasy VII–IX).

It has finally been translated into English with the second volume collecting the next three games in the series (Final Fantasy VII–IX). Full Disclosure: I am a tremendous aficionado of the Final Fantasy series since when it made it across the shores to North America in 1990. I have been a major fan ever since and each successive Final Fantasy was an instabuy for me – it even determined which console I would buy would eventually buy so I could play the game. Therefore, this review would have that fanboy bias, but just because it is severely biased, it does not mean that the review is not true. Final Fantasy Ultimania Archive, Volume 2 is a collection of original concept art, process pieces, and notes from the original artists and designers chronicling the next three installments in such a timeless and beloved franchised. It has an overview of the plot for each series archived with useful character bios and other lore that is essential to Final Fantasy – in short, it is an excellent reference book for any Final Fantasy fanatic. All in all, Final Fantasy Ultimania Archive, Volume 2 is a beautiful tome of art, lore, and history that is the wonderful franchise of Final Fantasy and I can't wait to read the next volume.

    This wonderful collection of images, quotes, concept art, and developer retrospective's is a great collection for any Final Fantasy fan of the PlayStation era to have. The 300 plus pages are packed full of great content, and you really get the bang for your buck. However, I will say something about the breakdown, which goes something like this: FFVII: 114 pages FFVIII: 70 pages FFIX: 126 pages As you can see from the divide, Final Fantasy VIII fans (definitely including myself) may be hungering for This wonderful collection of images, quotes, concept art, and developer retrospective's is a great collection for any Final Fantasy fan of the PlayStation era to have. The 300 plus pages are packed full of great content, and you really get the bang for your buck. However, I will say something about the breakdown, which goes something like this: FFVII: 114 pages FFVIII: 70 pages FFIX: 126 pages As you can see from the divide, Final Fantasy VIII fans (definitely including myself) may be hungering for more. But for what you get, this book is great. It's really well put together, the binding holds up, pages are nice and thick, and every space feels utilized. It's hard to complain that you want more content in an art book that's already pushing over 300 pages. This book isn't so much a "lore" book as it is a beautiful trip down memory lane with a ton of wonderful art. As a long time Final Fantasy fan who owns other art books for the series, I was surprised to find there were a decent amount of images I had never seen before. Well worth the read.

    Just like the first book, this is a beautifully done work for a final fantasy fan. This volume covers final fantasies 7-9. I did not like & so I skimmed this section but the rest is the book is just as well done as the previous volume.

    Very cool book about a few of my favorite games in the series. I wish the design documents and concept art were full page prints though, instead of shrinking them and fitting 3-5+ on a single page.
