The Art of the Mass Effect Universe is a gorgeous compendium of concept art for the complete Mass Effect trilogy, an ambitious video game series where a player's decisions have drastic ramifications that span the length of the entire trilogy. Mass Effect is more than just a video game - it has become a place filled with the memories of friendships, rivalries, wondrous visions, and thrilling adventures. The book opens with stunning illustrations of Commander Shepard in both his male and variant female form, portrayed in full armor with backdrops of brooding blues and biotic orange. The origin and concept design of every race is included: the mystical and sensually beautiful asari; turians with their avian-like silhouettte and carapace to shield them from radiation on their home planet; the semi-reptilian krogan, ever warring and riddled with testosterone; salarians with their sleek figure and large, intelligent eyes; quarians, tantalizing and mysterious behind their masks; the insectoid protheans; and the lithe drell, to say nothing of the elcor, volus, geth, praetorians, and rachni. Also included are concept sketches and full color illustrations of cities - highlighting the smooth curves and horizontal lines typical of the Mass Effect style - as well as aircrafts, vehicles, technology, planets and locales, weapons, and armor suitable for fighting in the biggest war ever seen in the galaxy against a seemingly unstoppable foe. When conceptualizing the Mass Effect universe, we kept a few artists and architects in mind. We drew inspiration from Syd Mead, John Harris, John Berkey, and Santiago Calatrava - just a few of the visual mavericks we looked to. Packed with concept art and minimal commentary, this colorful collection will inspire artists, intrigue lovers of science fiction, and warm the hearts of Mass Effect fans.

    I'm a bit sad that there is only about half a page out of 184 with FemShep. She is a gaming icon! (At least for those of us who chose her as a protagonist).

    Well, of course I was going to love this, because I love the Mass Effect series and I love concept art. It's always fascinating and inspiring to see the incredible breadth of ideas that artists explored before settling on a final vision. The creatures and settings of Mass Effect are so distinctive and immersive, in a way that almost seems effortless, as though the viewer/player is discovering a universe that's already existed for millennia.

    Absolutely fantastic. So incredible to see the concept art for characters, races, and areas and realize how vastly different things could have looked in the series. Just makes me even more excited for Andromeda. Highly recommended for any Mass Effect fans (especially those as rabid as myself).

    I started playing the games about a month ago, mostly out of curiosity. Before you know it, I was clocking more hours played than I was actually getting in sleep per day, and that's with a full time job and family. I completed the trilogy (game) just this morning and now I am ruined. No other game will ever measure up. When my daughter saw how obsessed I was with the game, she surprised me with this book. What a fantastic gift and definitely one that I will cherish. It details how each character I started playing the games about a month ago, mostly out of curiosity.

What a fantastic gift and definitely one that I will cherish. It details how each character was created and offers a little background into the creative process that went into creating the Mass Effect Universe. Because I'm not yet prepared to give up this tale, I have submerged myself in the comics, the first novel and a failed attempt (already) at finding another game that matches up, even a bit, to this. Believe me there is nothing. The artwork is superb and it is awesome to get the chance to learn the inspiration behind each race, and my favorite characters.

    Love Mass Effect!! When I played the games I couldn't help thinking the graphics were so awesome. That the aliens looked cool, the planets were amazingly done, and the setting for the storylines rocked.

This book shows original concepts, variety of graphic permutations and possibilities that it took to come up with the final product, and a look at the details like making the armor style match the home world architecture (sounds logical but I never thought of it that way before). My favorite was the creation of Jack, including an enlarged assortment of her tattoos (yay!). This book goes through the original Mass Effect, ME2, and ME3. It has some beautiful full page illustrations as well as smaller concepts and even initial rough sketches. Beautifully done, huge book, high quality, great coffee table topper. Its a must have for any Mass Effect fan!

    I'm not sure that one can so much 'read' an art book as simply gawp at each page, sometimes with envy thinking "I wish I had even half the talent!". If I didn't have so much respect for books, I'd think I'd rip this apart to get the pictures out and frame them. I missed out getting the art book when Mass Effect was first released and I can even remember thinking "Must get that some day" but I never did. The good thing about this book is that it includes artwork from all three games.

The good thing about this book is that it includes artwork from all three games. Not only did I find it interesting to see the concept work and the works that didn't quite make the cut but it's also good to see what is in the game. It's a little hard to examine a brute in game when it's trying to pound you into the ground or examine the architecture of Thessia when you have Reaper forces trying to stop you! Whilst this book doesn't add or take away anything to the enjoyment of the game itself, it does make me appreciate the effort of what went into a gorgeous game (even if the first is starting to look a little dated compared to the last). For instance, everything has an art asset including Shepard, the armour, weapons, ships even down to Jack's tattoos. Outside of fans of the game, I can probably see this appealing to those interested in sci-fi art.

    "Art of The Mass Effect Universe" provides a stunning look into the character design, atmospheric structuring, and look of the popular Bioware game series. I'm a late fan of Mass Effect, having played the first game and steadily catching up with the series, but this is an excellent book for collectors and fans of the series to take up, even those who are just starting.

I really loved seeing the setting design of places like The Citadel and Virmire, and I appreciated the background on how the designers did clothing and accessories for each of the different races. I'm in awe of the talent these artists have portrayed the world and races in these games. I do wish it were a little longer and included more commentary/insight into some of the characters, but I can't complain of the high quality work that I've seen here. I would definitely add it to my collection. Note: I received this as an ARC from NetGalley, from the publisher Dark Horse.

    This is a really outstanding art book and definitely one of the best video game ones I've owned. The art is all digital here, but there is a lot of character and location designs. The character designs are definitely expected out of any art book, but they are all very strong. The insight into why they were designed a certain way is excellent. The environment shots are incredible and the insight around each planet's design was equally excellent.

This book also covers all three Mass Effect games in just about the right amount of detail. The production quality is excellent and yet, the book is still reasonably priced. Finally, this may sound silly but I love how thick the pages are and that I never feel like I'm going to damage them when looking through the book. There are definitely some art books where you cannot make this claim. Overall, this is a must own for Mass Effect fans. Anybody who wants to see modern Sci-Fi art designs should also give this book a try.

    This was an amazing saga - I felt emotionally involved with this game and this book explains the motivations behind some of the visuals which shows an amazing amount of depth.

This is book is something that almost solely appeals and is marketed towards Mass Effect players, but it is interesting looking at it from the perspective as either a video game designer and/or an artist interested in sci-fi. What stood out to me while reading was that in designing and imagining each game in the trilogy, a different goal and mindset was established which almost all the art created followed. In Mass Effect 1, all concepts centre around establishing the universe and having to create all locations, alien races, and main characters from scratch, sourcing many sci-fi inspirations. We get to see the artwork for the major races such as asari, turian, salarian, elcor, volus, quarian, geth, and of course, human. Unfortunately, my two favourite races, hanar and batarian, are completely missing in the entire artbook besides mentions of the reapers for batarians. In the second game, focus shifts from worldbuilding, the thing that made the first game so great despite its flaws, to hone in on characters and specific locations that each evoke a central idea. Each character is given special consideration, a step up from the first game, and this was most likely due to characters such as Tali and Garrus, being a surprise hit with the fanbase. This told the team to focus more on companions rather than vast galaxies to explore. And in the third game, all art shifts to either the reapers or the effect war has on both the characters and various locations throughout the game. Characters are purposely upgraded, given more mature and tough looks that show their hardship in battle. There are references to the first game in many designs, but overall the art is overly centred on the reapers and their various minions. But there is also an attempt to expand Cerberus and looking at the little blurbs, it's clear that the developers wanted, or even needed, the players to read the books in order to have all the context for the final game. Honestly, I could go on for a while on analyzing the art of Mass Effect but hopefully, this gives you an idea in what to expect as well as have context for some of the changes between games as it often starts with art concepts. Now, that I've tackled the artbook straight after completing the entire trilogy, it's time to read the three novels, as those ratings will be less reliant on the original games.

    There's a lot of good stuff here but I admit I'm a bit disappointed. 182 pages is just not enough room for concept art for all three games! Maybe I'm just doing it a disservice by comparing it to the epic The Art of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. That book is a gold standard for these concept art books but it sets the bar really, really high. For ME1 in particular there are a lot of unused concepts or variations on concepts but I just know there had to be more than this!

What is there is also often rather small and hard to appreciate the details on. The accompanying text has a few errors and generally doesn't have a lot of really interesting behind-the-scenes insights to offer. Additionally, and I can't complain about it too much (because it is art of the Mass Effect Universe), there's also a lot of promotional art in here (particularly for ME2), which is already readily available online. Still, those complaints aside, there's some really great stuff in here and some interesting unused details. It's well worth picking up (or at least checking out) for any Mass Effect fan.

    One of my favorite games. Also that team is awesome. Love the cover. This was pretty good. Everything in the book is really good, from the character designs, art style for the different backgrounds as you see the different games and characters in the book as well. Really good read.

    My favorite of all the published ME art books. It helps that I'm also a huge Mass Effect fan. There's a bit of content overlap between this book and the previous art books, but overall this is a gorgeous addition to my Mass Effect collection. My favorite of all the published ME art books.

    Iconic work - but the game itself feels more immersive than the concept art book ... not a great feeling. Needed a lot more 'why's, wrong directions, more about the levels, and less crass comments. Iconic work - but the game itself feels more immersive than the concept art book ... not a great feeling.

When it comes to presentation the book is absolutely amazing, opening with three full page pictures with both male and female Shepard which are simply magnificent. The book covers all three games. For each game we get to see the design process of all the “important” characters, races, weapons, locations, armors and even vehicles. Each page has a small piece of text offering insight into the thought that went into designing the various elements of this amazing universe. The text is informative, well written and a perfect companion to better understand the images. Its truly captivating to see the evolution of some characters, like Saren or races like the quarians or krogan. There is a wealth of information here which is a pure pleasure for the dedicated fan. Every fan favorite gets a bit more “space” like Garrus or Tali, Miranda or Legion with full page pictures with fantastic art which are all amazing work from the Bioware artists. The book also covers all of the ME2 DLC and its characters and locations, which I thought was a nice touch. While there was clearly an effort to be thorough in trying to cover everything some flaws were glaring and a bit perplexing. Aria is strangely absent. Given a whole comic and ME3 DLC was devoted to her and she is even in the ME books its incredible how she didn't make it to these pages. She´s a fascinating and fan favorite character with a fantastic design and her absence is a huge mistake. Another very surprising thing is how little of the “villains” of the trilogy is present here. I´m talking about the reapers of course. A few pages are dedicated to the reaper forces but they deal with the ground “soldiers” only. There´s no mention of Sovereign! How is that even possible? The stellar design of the reapers was in my opinion a huge factor of the success of ME, especially with Sovereign in the first game. They´re menacing and imposing! Terrifying but strangely fascinating. The book not properly covering their design is unforgivable. Other more “supporting” characters like Dr. Chakwas or Udina are also nowhere to be found although I suppose with the limited space and so much material its understanding. Also of note is how little attention was given to Liara. She gets one page about her design in ME3 only! Again, surprising and perplexing! But fear not, Kai Leng gets two full pages! Oh yeah baby!!! Right... The book also has a problem in its layout. There´s a huge number of images on every subject but most of them are small. I mean, really small! The weapons for example are shown in such tiny images its impossible to admire the fabulous design. Its a problem that plagues every page and I wonder if it wouldn't have been better to keep some images out and print just the best with enough dimension to be truly appreciated. Now, this is still a magnificent art book and impossible to miss for someone who has enjoyed this universe for all these years. Its a great experience to see its evolution and how some characters could have been so different and how it all came together in the games we all love. The art is simply breathtaking and the information accompanying it priceless. So even with some flaws there is so much here that any ME collection cannot afford to miss this art book! But you cant shake the feeling that it could have been so much better!

    I have to admit that I did not request to view this galley for myself but for my partner who is absolutely obsessed with the game series Mass Effect.

I have a basic concept of the game and the universe of ME however so I am not writing this review completely blind. I have quickly perused the galley just so I could familiarise myself with the content and see the illustrations (which are fantastic), but I also read it as this review is really my boyfriend’s and I wanted to see if I agreed with him on his points. The illustrations are fantastic. There are excellent character portraits throughout and the production sketches are very interesting. It’s an extremely comprehensive guide covering all the major characters, races and numerous locations featured in all three games. When I asked my boyfriend if he enjoyed this galley, his response to me was, “you know how Douglas Adam’s novel The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy has a big red button on the cover saying ‘Do Not Panic’ on it? Well, this book should have a big red button and fireworks exploding screaming ‘Spoiler Alert!’” From that response, I conclude he was rather upset by the lack of spoiler alerts. There are none on the cover and there is no description or brief statement anywhere in the galley warning of potential spoilers, which could ruin the game for someone if they have not finished playing it. Although the illustrations are fantastic and the guide comprehensive, the captions for each illustration are far too brief, and the tone in the content outside the introductions is far too dry. A few quips and humorous anecdotes would not go amiss! Due to the uninspired commentary and the lack of spoiler alerts, this gaming companion still receives an impressive four stars as the quality of the art is outstanding, and this will make an excellent companion to the series once the game(s) have been finished. An advance reader copy was kindly supplied by netgalley.

    It’s no secret that I’m in love with most of Bioware’s games, and Mass Effect is probably the one on the top of that list. Since I’ve been playing the 3rd game I thought that reading the art book would be an awesome way to finish everything out for now. I will say that I’m slightly disappointed in book, but I still want to own a physical copy because the art is really great. Like I said the art itself is fantastic.

You get to see concept sketches, full page renderings, and awesome landscape paintings. It gives you a nice view into the things you didn’t necessarily get to see during the game because you were too busy kicking butt and taking names. The concept sketches give you an awesome idea of where things could have gone and the artists mind set as they worked to create the characters and different races. The part I was disappointed in was the actual explanations about the pictures. While some of the explanations really do give you cool info about the pictures, like why Quarian liveships are round and the inspiration behind things, others were very short and virtually uninteresting. I wanted to actually learn about the things they never explained in the games, like more info on the main characters or more info on the planets you only get glimpses of. I can also say that because of the short and brisk way some of the explanations are worded, it makes me wonder if there actually was anymore thought put into it or if it just happened. It felt…kind of half done. As I said before thought the art is awesome and there are some really cool facts in it, and I think that if you love the games like I do then it’s worth checking out. I’ll probably end up buying it so I can look back and reminiscence, but I really hope they’ll do something else…maybe an encyclopedia of sorts. I received this from Dark Horse and Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

    Okay, so first off, the art for this is gorgeous. There are lots of tiny details in the design that I didn't really notice playing through the game that were great to see in the concept art. I'm definitely going to have to pause the games and look at some of those details next time I play them.

There are lots of tiny details in the design that I didn't really notice playing through the game that were great to see in the concept art. I'm definitely going to have to pause the games and look at some of those details next time I play them. Some of the various concept art for what the different alien species could have looked like was really fun to look at. There were some designs that I'm glad didn't get selected, and some that could have been pretty interesting. I also really liked some of the various clothing/armor designs that didn't make it. But. I only gave this book three stars for two main reasons. First off, the information that goes with the art is kind of lacking. Usually it's just a two or maybe three sentence little blurb that just tells what the pictures are. I really wish there had been more about some of the thought processes and reasoning behind certain choices. Occasionally there was a bit of the thought process included and it just made the lack in the rest of the information that much more noticeable. The second reason is that there were some things I expected to be included that weren't. The Reapers, for example, never get any concept art of the main reaper ships that appear in all the games. Also, the Hanar species gets no art, or even mention that I can remember. Yet strangely concept art for the child from Mass Effect 3 was included. So in the end, this had some beautiful art, but I'd really like to see the Mass Effect universe get something along the lines of Dragon Age: The World of Thedas Volume 1 for the Dragon Age universe, which had some gorgeous art as well as lots of detailed information about the world.
