The Final Hours of Titanfall features:

- Never-before-seen videos from early development versions of Titanfall.
- Exclusive concept art from the first days of Respawn, detailing many of the abandoned concepts the team explored.
- New details on how the gameplay of Titanfall changed and evolved during development.

I really feel sorry for the idiots who bought this app thinking it was a game and then posted a negative review because they can't read.

I'm not even sure how they figured out how to use a computer with that level of intelligence.

I bought this app just so I could say this.

as mockingly,

as possible.

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.

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.

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 ♥♥♥♥♥♥ app it comes installed with. You have to install it twice and it takes up way more space than you expect it to.

I am a big fan of many games and Titanfall has been one of the best multiplayer experiences I have ever had in a multiplayer match but it takes certain type of player to do well in it and I would say Mirrors edge would be good training but back to this when i found Titanfall The Final Hours it was like finding gold for me because I love all the behind the scenes that people have been releasing these days and this let me learn a little bit more about the game.

I recommend the Final Hours of Titanfall to people who have a love for playing the actual game but not to the dark noobs who plague it.

An interesting read about how Titanfall came to be (or almost didn't come to be, really). If you read the Portal and/or Tomb Raider books as well, you know exactly what to expect here. There's some interactivity in it, but mostly it's just about the history of the game. But why the book is on Steam and the game is not I will never understand (ok, I do, but it's still weird).
Reading it completely will take you about 1,5-2 hours so don't expect a real book here, but it's interesting enough to read if you have nothing to do for a couple of hours.

[Rating: 79/100]

This gripping drama gives insight into the controversies behind making the popular video game Titanfall. The story not only focuses on the developers but on the reporter himself. Seen as biased by his peers after the Dorito scandal of 1996, Geoff Keighley fights to overcome his alcoholism and shed some light on the new indie darlings at Respawn Entertainment.

ABOUT:
A sexual harassment scandal soon hits Respawn Entertainment/EA, and it's up to Geoff to put his journalism magic powers to the test to figure out what REALLY happened. Sex, drugs, murder, concept art...The world of video game development is a dangerous and erotic place.

CONCLUSION:
For only $2 you can't say no to this masterpiece. Heck, you've probably spent more on joke gifts to give your friends during steam sales. Treat yourself. This will definitely put a smile on your face.
