Mass Effect: Homeworlds Reviews

  • Paige (Enchantology)

    3.5 stars

  • Sesana

    I really considered not reviewing or even rating this trade at all, considering my reaction to the ending of Mass Effect 3. (I really, really, really hated it.) I almost skipped reading it entirely, for that matter. But I do still care about this setting and these characters. (More, I suspect, than whoever wrote the ending of ME3, but I digress.) And two of the stories are about Tali and Garrus. Understand: I've played through ME five times, ME2 four times, and ME3 once. And over 95% of the time [...]

  • Scarlett

    Absolutely loved this. A must read for those who can't get enough of the Mass Effect universe!

  • Khaalidah Muhammad-Ali

    I enjoyed ME: Homeworlds but I suspect that half of the reason I did enjoy it has to do with the fact that I am so enamored with the Mass Effect Universe to start with.As I've recently said in a recent post/review, I played all three games in the trilogy in the space of a month, so that should be a good indication of how much I enjoyed the games. I don't/haven't ever, played anything so intensely. I finished the last game just yesterday morning, so the entire story is still very fresh in my mind [...]

  • Rajiv

    To be honest, I wasn't expecting much from this, but I was pleasantly surprised. It was great to see four of my favorite characters back in comics form. The stories were great and build upon these characters' histories fairly well.Heavily recommended for Mass Effect fans.

  • k

    man some of that art is ROUGH though

  • Stew

    great backgrounds to some of the characters in Mass Effect! :)

  • Erica

    This was so good! I loved seeing some of the events leading right up to the games đź’™ These graphic novels maintain the voices of the characters we love so well, and they always stay true to the story, which I love and appreciate.

  • Sarah

    My favourite so far because we were able to revisit favourite characters such as Garrus and Tali and gain a little more backstory. Definitely for fans of Mass Effect, I'm not sure how this would be perceived by a person unfamiliar with game series.

  • Ran

    Back stories for Vega, Tali, Garrus, and Liara. Didn't care for the art; was pacified only by Garrus's appearance. What the hell is with Liara and all the Drell?

  • Dikana

    ¿Qué nota puedo ponerle yo a esto? ¡Es Mass Effect!Homeworlds es una recopilación de cuatro historias cortas sobre los distintos puntos de inflexión en la vida de algunos de los coprotagonistas de ME: el momento en el que James decidió alistarse en la Alianza, el inicio del peregrinaje de Tali y su odisea hasta llegar a la Ciudadela, las razones que llevaron a Garrus a Omega y las investigaciones de Liara previas a la invasión segadora. Todas están escritas por Mac Walters (a veces en so [...]

    This is a fun little collection. The basic premise of the Homeworlds series is to have a set of one-shots, each of which fills in a bit of background for a Mass Effect (3) squadmate. Four members of the team are represented: Vega, Tali, Garrus, and Liara, in that order, with this edition collecting all four stories.Each story adds background, but they aren't necessarily origins. Vega's story is a proper origin, more or less, and covers him signing on as an Alliance marine. We get to take a look [...]

  • JoĂŁoJorge

    “Mass Effect: Homeworlds” did what “Evolution” tried but failed. “Homeworlds” creates and gives us a lot of lore but makes its stories interesting and fun. The comic is composed of four stories, each for a character. We have James Vega and a flashback into the time he joined the marines in his youth. This is essential for Vega because he was only introduced in ME3 and his development during the game was minimal at best so he never really made his mark with the player base. This “or [...]

  • Michelle (In Libris Veritas)

    Calling all Mass Effect fans! If you love the series then you have to read this…even if you’re still made about ME 3′s ending, read it. This includes four stories about four different teammates, and they all touch on something that you’ve probably wondered about. For instance: What did Garrus really go through after ME 1? What was Tali’s story before you found her? How did Liara end up on Mars? Why is James Vega so committed and what is his story?This gives light to all of those, and a [...]

    I received this book for free through Netgalley, in exchange for an honest review. It is also posted on my blog, Rinn Reads.I'm a little bit of a Mass Effect fangirl. Which is something, since I never even finish most games that I buy, but I've completed and replayed all three games and I never get bored of them. I'm trying to read all the novels and graphic novels, since the trilogy is now over, so I grabbed this one from Netgalley when it appeared.It covers the back stories of James, Tali, Gar [...]

  • Matthew Ciarvella

    After the last few forays into the Mass Effect comic series, I'd started to wonder if they weren't for me. I'm happy to say that Homeworlds, the fourth entry in the series, is an excellent change of course and gets things moving in a direction that I really enjoyed.We get some backstory scenes for four of Mass Effect 3's crewmembers: James Vega, Tali, Garrus, and Liara. It was interesting to see how the game universe handles the incredibly deep number of choices, as depending on how you played t [...]

  • Amber Dunten

    After reading Redemption, Evolution, Invasion, and Homeworlds, I think I like Homeworlds the best. It contains four short stories that flesh out the background of four beloved Mass Effect characters - James Vega, Garrus, Tali, and Liara - and in some cases, fill in a few backstory details about in-game events. I like the art in Homeworlds the best of all four of these graphic novels. The characters are very well drawn and true to the game for the most part, although James Vega seems a bit off. I [...]

  • Kyle Austin

    The first story wasn't that enjoyable but truly enjoyed the rest!

  • Alex Jones

    A collection of four short stories each focussed on a particular character from Mass Effect; to a nerd like me this was really enjoyable. The first focuses on James Vega pre-military and I didn't enjoy so much. I never really liked Vega too much as a character and the story sets up a conflict, then leaves the resolution implicit, without doing anything else. The rest of the stories I enjoyed a lot more, however. The second deals with Tali's pilgrimage and is entertaining and has surprising emoti [...]

  • Paige

    All this really does is give you four backgrounds on four different characters in Mass Effect. Vega was the only surprising one out of the bunch, the other three are the main fan favorites Liara, Tali, and Garrus. I feel like if this book had Jack in it I would've been over the moon excited. Garrus as the archangel was cool and all, but I feel like it was an obvious path that he took. I used to like Tali, but you know then there was the whole only time I pushed left trigger and made a paragon ch [...]

  • Matt

    Everyone who knows me, knows I love Tali'Zorah. The prospect of having a comic featuring a (short) story about her made Homeworlds a fairly easy sell. I had heard some bad things about it, however. And to be completely truthful, while I enjoyed the book overall, the story I enjoyed the most was that of Garrus. Tali's story was OK, but it felt a little off to me. I'm not particularly interested in James, and Liara's story was a fair bit better than Tali's. Ultimately, as I've said before (and typ [...]

  • Cale

    This is a collection of four single issues, filling in back stories for Vega, Tali, Garrus and Liara. As such, each issue varies a bit in quality, and your enjoyment probably depends on how much you like the characters. The Vega story didn't do much for me, but the rest are all good to very good. Seeing Tali and Garrus in action especially was nice, with Garrus and Liara's stories dovetailing into events for the games. The art is good; it really captures the feel of the Mass Effect universe. And [...]

  • Matthew

    Phenomenal. This is my favourite of the four Mass Effect volumes out to date. There are four separate stories within this graphic novel, each fills in a gap in the Mass Effect timeline. Each story is primarily about one character, in this order: James Vega, Tali'Zorah, Garrus Vakarian and Liara T'Soni. The stories lead up nicely to key points in the video games, and provide an interesting backstory to each character. The weakest of the four in my opinion is James', and the best is Garrus'. A mus [...]

  • LadyNymm

    I have a great love for the Mass Effect universe and all the incredible character's it has produced. I really wanted to love this graphic novel, which gave us a bit more insight into the events that took place with some of the character's in the two years that Shep was gone. I felt like it didn't add that much to the story, it offered tiny tidbits of character backstory for the likes of Garrus and James but overall lacked substance. The graphics didn't wow me either. I liked it because it was mo [...]

  • Silas

    As Mass Effect comics go, this one is quite good. It ties into the storylines of the games, and actually keeps biotics and weapons working the way they do in the source material. I particularly liked how some of the conversations were ones that I remembered from the games, while not being the entirety of the story, which instead fleshed out backgrounds for the characters. It helps if you have played the games, since the stories won't make a ton of sense if you haven't, but if you have, this give [...]

  • Georga Hackworth

    Yea, this compilation has yet to be released - and it is a compilation of four Mass Effect comics telling some of the back stories of James Vega, Tali, Liara T'Soni and Garrus - that have been released individually. All four are rather interesting stories (Garrus's being my favorite of the four) that many Mass Effect fans will appreciate.

  • Katie Wishowski

    After reading Evolution and Invasion, I was so excited to read this, but I am REALLY disappointed in the quality of this graphic novel. The stories were poorly written, and the art was an absolute joke compared to the previous novels. What the heck happened? Evolution and Invasion were beautifully drawn, this looks and reads like a Saturday morning cartoon from the 90's.

  • Andrew

    A little uneven, as is par for the course for the Mass Effect comics, but it is interesting to get a little background peek into the lives of the other characters, what brought them to where they were and, as always, a little more Mass Effect is something I appreciate.

  • Andrew Crouthamel

    Huge fan of the Mass Effect universe and games. This is a great addition!

  • Brendan Nicholls

    I really dont like these as much as the mass effect core story. it is enjoyable but not essential reading
