Mass Effect - Revelations Review @ Ars Technica

by Dhruin, 2007-06-24 01:46:46

Ars Technica has reviewed the Mass Effect book Revelation, written by BioWare's Drew Karpyshyn.  The site recommends it as a "buy" so anyone following Mass Effect might want to check it out:

The story itself focuses on an eventful investigatory campaign led by a war hero named David Anderson; a model solider and upstanding example of human capability. Anderson is charged with the task of investigating an attack on a secret human military encampment, but things quickly go awry as the shroud of mystery is slowly lifted. Encounters with the mysterious and ruthless Citadel Spectres—a special force of above-the-law soldiers working directly for the government—and bounty hunters make the investigation all that much more difficult, and the story plays out with an effective balance of action and edification that is paced pretty well. The interactions with the book's Spectre, especially, led to some daydreaming about being a ruthless antihero in the game, as we know that the main character of the game is a Spectre.
