Book Review: The Art of the Mass Effect Trilogy: Expanded Edition

The Art of the Mass Effect Trilogy: Expanded Edition - 01


This 264-page hardcover artbook collects the concept art for Mass Effect 1, 2 and 3 and art from the ME2's DLCs Kasumi – Stolen Memory, Overlord, Lair of the Shadow Broker, and Arrival and ME3's DLCs From Ashes, Leviathan, Omega and Citadel.

There's a lot of content duplicated from The Art of Mass Effect Universe which was published in 2012. That earlier artbook features art from Mass Effect 1 and 2 with some sneak peek art from ME3. This latest artbook is expanded to cover art from ME3 and the DLCs. It certainly doesn't feel nice to have to buy a book with so much duplicated content, but there are more than 100 pages of art for ME3.

This book is packed with concept art and designs for the characters, enemies, props, ships, vehicles and environment. The art is beautiful and there's lot of see. The art from more than a decade ago still looks great today. The environment artworks look terrific and many are printed huge and hence really satisfying to look at.

Captions are brief but enough, certainly helpful at helping you remember these games from such a long time ago.

If you can find this artbook at a good price (currently US $28 on Amazon), it's still considered a good buy.
