Mass Effect Foundation #2 Review

Posted on Thursday, August 22 @ 08:46:00 Eastern by Keri_Honea
Mass Effect Foundation #2, to my surprise, continued the story of Rasa and her involvement with the Illusive Man and Cerberus. Rasa has been sent to the Citadel to retrieve sensitive information from a Mr. Fist, owner of nightclub Chora's Den, who suddenly turned against the Shadow Broker. Rasa's goal is to grab Fist and his information before one of the Shadow Broker's assassins reaches him, one Urdnot Wrex.

Fans of the Mass Effect series will undoubtedly recognize this scene as the mission where Shepard met and eventually recruited Wrex. While it was interesting to learn that other parties were interested in Fist aside from the Shadow Broker, Saren, and Shepard, this issue left me thinking that perhaps the Foundation series will place Rasa as a Forrest Gump figure, someone who happens to be present at all of the key moments in Mass Effect history.

Even if that is the case, it doesn't entirely take away from the fact that issue #2 is a fun read. If nothing else, you'll get to see Wrex blow a lot of things up, which was always one of my personal highlights in the first Mass Effect game as well as the Citadel DLC for Mass Effect 3.

Foundation #2 will be available for digital download and retail purchase next week, August 28th, from Dark Horse.
