For the very first version, it has several 'bugs' within.

- It needs Adobe Air
- It needs seperate installation even if you 'installed' this e-book through steam.

it asks you to 'reinstall' after first launch.

- mouse control is very weird.

- wheel scroll moves more than a screen. I had to use scrollbars to read the articles.

- Some fonts are broken, affecting some layouts like "finding your titan"

- image qualities are bad, BAD.

EDIT : I have "less than an hour" record on this uncomfortable app.
It is not even a game, and I don't need "three hours" to judge it.

Doesn´t even install?

Bought it for my Mac in the Mac-game section but doesn´t install. The game info screen in my library says that this game is currently not available for my OS? What the...? I bought it in the Mac section so what the hell?

A good read! It has a lot of nice concept art (some of which I've screenshotted in case you wanna take a peak) and cool videos showing the progress of Titanfall. Only thing negative I can come up with is the ♥♥♥♥ty app it comes installed with. You have to install it twice and it takes up way more space than you expect it to.

I'm writing this review as I'm going through this on Steam, and will serve as a log of my experience with using it.

Once Final Hours of Titanfall (this is the name it will be listed under when you look for it in your Steam library) is "downloaded", running the application will launch an Adobe Air installer - this will install Adobe Air onto your computer if you don't already have it, as well as the actual "book".

First attempt at running ended up causing an error and the install failed. After unckecking "Add desktop icon" and "start after install is finished", it installed successfully after the second attempt.

From there I went back to my library to run the program, a prompt from Adobe Air showed up, asking if I wanted to uninstall or run, so I chose to run the program.

From there going through the application is easy and simple - use the arrow keys or mouse to navigate, and close the window like you would any other window.

Obviously the people that would be interested in this would be those that would like to know more behind the history of Respawn and Titanfall, as well as getting a glimpse of some of what goes into making these kind of games. If you're into that stuff, I'd recommend it.

HOWEVER, if you're running a Windows 8 computer, I'd recommend using Microsoft's Bing Rewards program to get a $3 gift card for the Windows Store, and purchase it through there without having to worry about having to wait through the install process of Adobe Air.
