Aeropause writer, Joe, sat down and read through the prequel book that leads up to the events that happen in the Mass Effect game. Overall, it was considered a good read and provided a lot of background information on the universe as a whole.
I read almost as much as I play videogames, I really enjoy the universe-expanding back stories like this. Not Asimov or Stephenson caliber work, but usually a decent read. Things like this usually help you appreciate what it is that you're doing in a video game. Kudos to BioWare and MS for seeing this done.
have to say as a science fiction book a really quite liked it, i think reading this will have made the game more enjoyable for me.
