Great bundle with "The Art of Mass Effect" - Hardcover and "Mass Effect's Official Game Guide" - Paperback + huge ME poster (with the art from the game cover). The Art Books is great, with all kinds of concept art. Early versions of some characters, ships, weapons, armors, etc. The Strategy Guide is standard. Explanations about all different classes, talents, weapons... and walkthrough for all missions in the game.

containing concept art from one of the best games this generation, this book is a must have for fans of sci fi, mass effect or concept art in general. progressing through characters, environments, aliens etc, showing the development of each for the game (and how each was tailored for the game experience), there is plenty on show here - and it is all stunning. Bound in hardcover this is also nice and sturdy volume (no dust-jacket though).

HASH(0x93cbb0b4) out of 5 stars Great Guide and awesome Art Book 14 Dec. 2007
By I am on first! - Published on Amazon.com

This set is wonderful...Sure the Guide Book isn't hard cover, but it is full of great tips, and no Mass-Effect fan should be without it. As for the Art Book, the guys at Bioware sure do have fantastic talent and imagination. A highly recommended purchase, especially if you love the game.

HASH(0x93cbb2dc) out of 5 stars Great for art fans into game design 30 Jun. 2008
By Zenith - Published on Amazon.com
I got this for the art book, so I don't have a strong opinion on the guide. That said, the guide is useful for completionists like me. The "collecting" side quests may be quite hard to complete without any help as many of the objects don't show up on the maps until you get near them. This book will save you a lot of time by marking them out for you. Although you can get all the information you need online, it's handy to have a printed version while you're within the game.

The art book contains a lot of gorgeous concept art that really shows how much attention has gone into the design of this fabulous game. Mass Effect has one of the best game stories I've encountered, and if you love the story as much as I do, you'll enjoy reliving the game via the artwork and seeing how the design of the characters and aliens evolved into their final versions.

The chapters cover the gamut: characters, races, environments, vehicles - there's even a "details" sections that covers miscellaneous stuff like furniture. The pages are dominated by the pictures, descriptive text is present but minimal; the way it should be.

I would give the art book a 5 star, but overall the set receives a 4-star because the guide is pretty straightforward, and there's nothing really special about this so-called collector's edition.

HASH(0x93cbb3c0) out of 5 stars Great for some essentials, but references missing content. 2 Dec. 2009

This guide is pretty good in general but references Appendices that were apparently cut and has typos and some inaccurate info, Its great for covering the planets and the key points of the major missions.

HASH(0x93cbb87c) out of 5 stars Amazing artwork for an amazing game... 28 Nov. 2010
By J. Black - Published on Amazon.com
The artwork produced for this game is fantastic! This book belongs on the shelf of any science fiction enthusiast. I'm not surprised at all that this collectors' item has TRIPLED IN VALUE in the few short years since its print! Also, its value will only continue to rise since the Mass Effect saga will be coming to the big screen in a couple of years!

HASH(0x93cbb6f0) out of 5 stars One part good, one part OK... 26 Dec. 2007
By J.S. Knapp - Published on Amazon.com
I am a huge fan of Mass Effect. I've been playing games for two decades now - Mass Effect is the first that appeals to me in nearly every way.

That being said, there's a lot of good in this package. The art book is very professionally done - hardback, clear text, and what everyone who would care for this product should expect - detail, description, and knowledge. It was very entertaining to see prototype images on the faces, species, vehicles, and even weapons used in Mass Effect. It was also interesting to read the ideas that became the various species and creatures. I'm very glad to have the art book in my possession.

The game guide is, well, another game guide. It gives nitty-gritty detail on the stuff you can figure out on your own, and skims over the areas that might challenge you, but that's the nature of the beast. My only complaint is that - as I have seen with many of these guides - is frustrating print issues. In some of the side-tip text boxes, the text overlaps itself - words are printed on top of words and the entire section is completely illegible. There's little reason why an error like this should slip through product quality testing.

In the end you've got a product that's good but not great.
