Product Description

Product Description

A Game of Thrones - Genesis immerses you into the heart of the battles and intrigues between the Houses that shaped the Kingdom of Westeros. From Nymeria's arrival in the Kingdom of Dorne to the awakening of the "Others" beyond the Wall, you'll live the origins of A Game of Thrones saga through more than 1000 years of history, by taking part in Westeros' founding events and largest battles. In this great strategy game, victory does not necessarily result from brute force. You can choose to use a military approach and besiege your opponents, strangle them in an economical war, or even use dirty tricks and diplomacy to politically crush them. Treachery and deception are everywhere and can be more efficient than the most powerful army. So watch your back and show no mercy if you want to remain on the Iron Throne.

  • The video game adaptation of the fantasy saga "A Song of Ice and Fire" by George RR Martin.
  • A deep and exciting gameplay combining strategy, diplomacy and politics.
  • Discover the origins of the universe of the Iron Throne through the Story mode, and participate in major conflicts that have shaped Westeros.

    2.0 out of 5 stars This Game is Lazy, Rushed and Bland October 28, 2011
    One of the first things that strikes me about A Game of Thrones: Genesis is how bland it is. Before even talking about mechanics or gameplay or graphics or anything else that makes a game AGOT:G fails because it doesn't completely embrace the source material it purportedly represents. One gets the impression that the game was designed and then, only after a license was acquired, some flavor text slapped together at the last minute and plugged in. The game is painfully generic in comparison to the rich setting of the novels and television series.

    The first thing you notice is that there aren't even proper place names. In every level you operate from "feudal home" and move about a map populated by places with such interesting names as "town" or "gold mine". You really can't tell that you are supposed to be playing on a map of Westeros; you could just as well be playing in medieval England, Germany, France or even Greyhawk or FaerŻn. The world is completely and utterly generic.

    You are given units that are major characters from the books but they don't do anything. In the first campaign Nymeria is a unit, for example, but she does nothing. You can select her and she'll spurt the occasional flavor text to remind you of where the game is supposed to be set, but you can't move her, order her or do anything at all with her. She just stands there, fixed and immobile. When you can do anything with the characters it's something like a lame escort mission.

    Missions include things like conquering named places from Westeros. However, no such places exist anywhere on the map. There is no "Crackclaw Point", only "Feudal Home" and a dozen places named "Town".

    First off, this game is not well polished at all. Mods for Mount and Blade Warband, or Medieval Total War that are based on A Song of Ice and Fire are much better then this game. However, this game is not horrible, it is very political, which is what makes it unique. It plays like a RTS game, so you make armies and they clash it out age of empires style (not total war style), lot of your time is spent acquiring towns through envoys (which is very boring since its all automatic), and then sending out spuies to make sure those towns didnt make a secret agreement with the enemy. Then one of your envoys will get assassinated, and you have to send a spy to locate him (this is all horrible graphics RTS btw, its just 1-2 clicks here and there) after spy locates him you hire mercenaries to take him out, which look no different then your main army (like 3 little guys on horseback, its not cool or anything, just a representation of a army). Anyways, I only gave this game 2 stars because of the story, being able to read before each new chapter 1-2 pages of backstory is the only reason I bought this game. I just am a huge fan of story, but def not this game. Even then its heavily outdated, its maybe 30 seconds of reading backstory (no voice reads it to you like most modern games) then 30 mins of a mission... so yeah

    1.0 out of 5 stars Awful October 25, 2011
    I was looking forward to this game, as the promos for it looked pretty good. I recognized that it was going to be an AoE RTS-type, but I was OK with that because, well, I really like AoE. But this is, amazingly, actually a worse game than AoE, and AoE came out long ago. The game really has nothing to do with the Ice and Fire series other than you are supposedly a Targaryen. And it supposedly takes place in Westeros. The game is buggy, boring, and kind of hard to figure out. It is not fun by any stretch, but is actually somewhat of interest just because it is so astoundingly awful. Worse game I've played since my brother picked up a ColecoVision at a garage sale.

    1.0 out of 5 stars Tragic October 11, 2011
    Unfortunately, pretty tragic attempt. It is pretty glitchy, at least the graphics are. Which is weird, because they seem based on 15-year-old technology anyway. It isn't a bad game for 1996, and if it had been released then, might have made some waves. Or perhaps not. The gameplay is seems somewhat frantic (in a bad way, not in a SC2 way). The back story, which should have been the most interesting thing, was just boringly done. I am sorry that it didn't work out well, and the company gave it a decent attempt, but this just is not a game that is worth playing.

    1.0 out of 5 stars Just bad. October 4, 2011
    Don't waste your money hoping this game is something its not. The game has poor graphics, gameplay, and sound. $39.99 to take advantage of a great book series. Wish I could have my money back.

    1.0 out of 5 stars It's really just not fun. April 11, 2012
    Verified Purchase
    I really wanted to like this game. And I tried to like it for about half an hour. After that long with the game, the only thing on my mind was "phew. I'm glad I didn't pay anything near full price for this".
