    "If you are a fan of the Mass Effect trilogy video games, or even just a fan of video games in general, The Art of the The Mass Effect Universe is a must own book. Not only does the book contain some beautiful color artwork inspired by the games, but it also includes some line sketches that would help any amateur artist learn to draw some of the characters. If your not a fan of the trilogy, but just of video games in general, this makes a great coffee table book."

    "Halo is a legendary video game. It was one of the first online multiplayer games to gain a huge spike in popularity as quickly as it did. One of the main factors was proximity voice chat, which allowed players to communicate with their opponents if they were within a certain proximity. This was revolutionary for video gamers. This revolutionary and very fan-admired game is a hit as an art book. Kids and Adults alike can reminisce through all the scenery and images of the virtual halo world they love and cherish."

    "I'm probably biased, considering the Final Fantasy series has been my favorite video game series for over 20 years, but this book is top-notch. Large glossy pages do the art justice. Quite suitable to be a coffee table book. If you're a fan of the games like I am, you'll probably hear music from the games in your mind as you flip through the pages. "
