If you d like to see my reviews of the first two Mass Effect books click on the links Revelation and AscensionThe first Mass Effect book Revelation was a way to get Mass Effect suited to the book world It involved characters from the first game and acted as a preuel The novelty of it was that you read about places you technically had been to walked through ran through shot at people through etc By involving the characters we knew it was a test to see if Mass Effect could adapt to the written medium And it succeeded It was a load of fun and actually made the game deeper You could never look at Captain Anderson the same since you knew so much about him from Revelation It was a book that was canon that ADDED to the depth of the first gameThe second book Ascension was a chance for the writer to expand the Mass Effect universe not seen in the games well at least at the time it was published being published between Mass Effect and Mass Effect 2 This was a tough task mainly because having taken place after Mass Effect 1 the setting couldn t be expanded on too much as there were literally thousands of scenarios in the game play that were likely different for loads of people The writer had to expand the universe but couldn t mention Commander Shepard with any specifics like if Shepard was male or female since she could be either in the game etc if the Council lived who was running things for humanity etcBut luckily the universe was so deep that Ascension successfully created characters we cared about or continued their stories as is the case with Kahlee Sanders who showed up in Revelation as well and could isolate everything away from Mass Effect 1 when necessary It also could utilize people and places we hadn t seen yet but would see in Mass Effect 2 There was a lot of freedom there And for the most part the book was fun I did wish though that we could have a Shepard book butwould they come out with 18 versions based on what you chose in now two video games Shepard books are impossible because it would piss somebody off due to the options in the game playAnd as interesting as Captain Anderson is who was not seen much at all in Mass Effect 2 and Kahlee Sanders Mass Effect 2 when it came out really turned up the drama and the darkness creating situations that wereare compelling and frightening and changed the mythos entirely Mass Effect Retribution is much like Ascension in which it is trying to expand the universe without touching the games It worked in Ascension but because Mass Effect 2 is out with that expanded mythos Retribution is just frustrating While we get to see what goes on in a Reaper s head and see Mass Effect 2 characters The Illusive Man and Aria extensively this feels like a pretty pointless tale that doesn t add anything to the Mass Effect universe And that s a shameWe do get to see Captain now Admiral Anderson and Kahlee again but Retribution ends up becoming trapped in the non game mythology created in Ascension mainly because Retribution is held prisoner to it since it can t encroach on anything from the game due to the multiple game play possibilities and two games worth of mythology So you just feel like you re cutting corners and AVOIDING situations in Retribution as opposed to being put in them You also can t help but assume a big ol dues ex machina is gonna fall too so that come Mass Effect 3 nothing that happens in Retribution effects the game playAscension managed to bring the Illusive Man into the proceedings pre Mass Effect 2 in limited but effective ways In Retribution since we have to see him so much since he was only in small unrevealing parts in the second game we kind of learn too much about him He does things in this book that completely destroy the mystery of his motivations in the game and will actually taint Mass Effect 3 a bit Author Drew Karpyshyn had this problem in Revelation as well with the villain Saren In Mass Effect the game Saren is always portrayed as evil but it is possible for him to be redeemed come the end due to the heavily established idea of Indoctrination by the Reaper Sovereign And if you so chose that ending it created the possibility that Saren was actually as good as Shepard once was at one point in timebut Revelation makes Saren a fucking sadist and completely unsalvageable Karpyshyn makes a habit of explaining too much sometimes so this isn t totally Retribution s faultI like the idea of Mass Effect books For the most part they are fun and enjoyable and in two out of three cases they aren t simply throw away media tie in entertainment These books appear for the most part to be canon to the universe but Retribution seems like a television episode while the other books and games feel like epic cinematic adventures I m interested to see where they go from here after the disappointment that is Retribution They could keep following AndersonKahlee which as Retribution shows will be extremely limited or they could focus on characters seldom seen an Aria book might be interesting or as I suspect a book on the biotic child Gillian introduced in Ascension is a plausible and welcome possibility But I do think that by trying to stay within the timeline of the games which grow extremely complex as time goes on I think the books will end up being dreadfulMy real wish is to see the dense mythology depicted perhaps a War and Peace like view of the First Contact War between Turians and Humans An internal look at how the Genophage is effecting the Krogan Preuels involving the Normandy and the Normandy II s crew Possibilities are ripe but the current approach has to go unless it is DIRECTLY associated with the forthcoming Mass Effect 3 Mass Effect is too rich and deep for something as
