I’ve just got ahold of Mass Effect. I’m operating about a year behind the release schedule which means Yay! cheap games. Although Fable 2 and Fallout 3 are calling me i must admit.
At the same time as i bought it (from Amazon) i noticed there was a prequel book called Mass Effect: Revelation which has a very good rating and i’m tempted to read it first as i understand it explains a lot of the background and i’ve heard the actual game throws you rather in the deep end.
So the question is, is the book too spoilerly? Now i’m sure it doesn’t give away completely plot critical stuff about the bad guy(s) and there plans in the game. But, does it spoil (and i realise i’m being ambiguous here) lots of other neat stuff that you find out in the game. Imagine a Halo2 prequel giving away the Flood, that sort of thing.
