Mass Effect: Retribution Review

I haven't read any video game-related novels for many years (three kids!), but those of you with more time than I might be interested in checking out this review of Drew Karpyshyn's Mass Effect: Retribution novel over at GameHounds. There's no score, but here's how the article concludes:
Retribution also does an excellent job in painting a picture of the Omega station, which was probably my favorite location in Mass Effect 2, and which is a living, breathing character in its own right. Omega has the flavor of the Mos Eisley cantina, though on an immense scale, and it serves as a negative counterpart to the Citadel, nerve center for the official galactic governments. Retribution shows us that Omega has the potential for many stories and that its pirate queen ruler is fearsome, complex, surprising, and fallible. Mass Effect 4: The Pirate Queen of Omega? I can hope.

I enjoyed my time with Retribution, but then again I am a devoted fan of the series who plays through the games two or three times (at a minimum) to make sure I get the full experience of all of the characters and potential plot paths. You won't get any amazing revelations out of Retribution, but you will get a deeper understanding of the background and enjoy a fun action-adventure story along the way. Recommended, though primarily for sci-fi and/or Mass Effect story fanatics.
