Product Description

With an original story written under the supervision of George R. R. Martin, filled with characters and locations straight from the pages of the beloved fantasy saga-including the likenesses of stars from the cast of the hit HBO TV adaptation, Game of Thrones promises to deliver the ultimate interactive RPG experience for fans of its gritty, sophisticated medieval fantasy.

From the Manufacturer

THE AWARD-WINNING INTERNATIONAL BOOK & TV PHENOMENON…
NOW A HIGHLY ANTICIPATED GAME DEVELOPED IN COLLABORATION WITH GEORGE R. R. MARTIN!

With an original story written under the supervision of George R. R. Martin, Game of Thrones promises to deliver the ultimate interactive role-playing experience for fans. The game is filled with familiar locations straight from the pages of the beloved fantasy saga along with the likeness and voices of several actors portrayed in the TV series.

With this epic new Game of Thrones game, fans will have a chance to not simply read or watch the story, but to take an active role in the riveting drama as it unfolds.

Overview
In this 30-plus hour role-playing game, players will enter the gritty and medieval fantasy world of Westeros. As one of two original characters with disparate motivations, both former soldiers of Robert’s Rebellion, players will forge alliances and wage battles as they play a pivotal role in the ongoing war for power of the Seven Kingdoms. Their journey will span numerous quests, during which they will interact with many characters and make key decisions that impact the realm.

Standing before the majesty and bitter isolation of the Wall or walking through the streets and alleys of King’s Landing, players will not simply pass by locations and characters integral to the series; they will explore and interact with them, meeting and learning about the people and history that defines them and their importance. Key decisions and major events will have meaningful impact on Westeros, allowing the player to witness how the game world evolves over time based on their actions or inactions.

Moreover, Game of Thrones introduces an innovative “active slowdown tactical combat engine” in which the player can slow but not completely stop the action, forcing them to plan and execute quickly. In this way, combat delivers the intensity, grit, and realism that the books and TV series are known for.


Pre-order and receive the "Game of Thrones: Visuals from the RPG" artbook!

Only available from select retailers while limited supplies last, the "Game of Thrones: Visuals from the RPG" art book stands as one of ATLUS' finest bonuses to date, offering sixty-four full color pages of sketches, renders, photos, and screenshots from the game accompanied by compelling text and commentary from the game's developers. The book will also include rare behind the scenes materials, like a portrait of the development team signed with a special message from author George R. R. Martin himself. The art book-measuring 8.5" wide and 11" tall-is hardbound, meticulously composed, and printed on premium stock, a true labor of love worthy of the series and its fans.

Features

  • BECOME A PART OF THE GAME OF THRONES SAGA — Play as multiple characters, embark on numerous quests, and make key decisions that have meaningful impact on Westeros in this 30-plus hour RPG epic!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good for die-hard ASOIAF fans who love RPGs. May 16, 2012
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3| Edition:Art Book Bundle|Verified Purchase
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
I would say that this game is made for a very specific audience. For one thing, it was created by a rather small studio. It's not Bethesda or BioWare, so don't be expect something in the leagues of Skyrim or Dragon Age. However, it is still a game you should definitely try if 1) you love the ASOIAF series (or the show), and 2) love RPGs. If you're not a huge fan of either, you are likely to be very disappointed. Being a die-hard fan of anything ASOIAF and awesome RPGs, I knew I had to get this, regardless of the reviews.

GRAPHICS - the graphics are more like for the PS2 or XBox. It's definitely nothing to write home about. It's a little dark and blocky, but change your television/game settings for a more enjoyable experience. Okay, so the graphics are not so good. Don't play this for the stellar graphics.

DIALOGUE - the dialogue actually isn't that bad. You get the real acting voices of Cersei, Varys, and Jeor Mormont, which is pretty awesome. It's definitely dialogue-intensive like a lot of RPGs, but that shouldn't bother you if you're playing an RPG. You also get to make decisions based on your own dialogue that make lasting impressions in the game. I think a big complaint here is the lack of witty humor in a dark setting like a lot of RPGs have (Dragon Age, Skyrim, KOTOR, etc.)

BUGS - this is my main issue with the game. The bugs are bad. My game froze up twice at the beginning and had to re-create my character. I was about ready to hurl the game out the window after that. No one likes to spend $60 on a game and then have it freeze up. This game doesn't autosave all of the time like some of the newer games, so make sure you save a lot.

GAMEPLAY - the battle system is similar to Dragon Age, but a lot more button mashing.

3.0 out of 5 stars Only for serious fans of ASOIAF May 24, 2012
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3| Edition:Art Book Bundle|Verified Purchase
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
This game pays tribute to the story telling style of Martin's books by switching perspective every chapter. The only issue for the game is that this creates a very linear and limited story line. You can not leave the cities you are at or do many side quests since you will have to end at a set point to pick up with the new perspective.

The battle system is extremely limited and boring. You simply select an enemy and select an attack. Your character will just hack away after a special attack is performed until the enemy is dead. More often than not your character will then just stand around until you command him to the next person which becomes tedious. The battle system makes the game feel like a grind.

There are too many cut scenes in this game. It feels like Max Payne 2 where you simply walk from one cut scene to the next with absolutely nothing in between. I understand they are trying to tell a story but doing it in this manner makes the game more like an animated movie with awkward breaks in the narration.

There are some very interesting RPG aspects that are introduced in this game. The main one is the strengths and weaknesses options. You can chose a strength like +5 attack but then must also choose a weakness like -10% INT to balance yourself out. This is neat however I did not mess with it since I did not know how I would like to play the game.

Overall this game is a neat tangent to the first book of a ASOIAF but it is truly a grind to play. I would wait until this game is <$20 since it really is not worth more.

The art book is more like a meet the developers book where it talks about all of the developers and their roles. So don't get your hopes up for some awesome mass effect esque art book. You will be disappointed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great for RPG and ASoIF fans June 6, 2012
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3| Edition:Art Book Bundle|Verified Purchase
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
When I purchased this game I knew not to get my hopes up. I bought it simply because I'm a huge fan of the Song of Ice and Fire series. After about an hour into the game I felt it was pretty much what I expected it to be, just an average tactical western rpg with mediocre graphics and slow dialogue (slow as in many of the characters literally speak slowly). With that said the more I played the game the more it grew unto me.

The graphics may not be that great but the art direction is pretty good. Locations like Castle Black and the Riverspring Godswood truly feel like Westeros locales. Many of the character models were done pretty good too but there are a number of characters that feel like they didn't have the same level of effort put into them when the game was being made.

The voice acting could go either way. As I mentioned earlier some of the dialogue seems really slow, but I will say that a few of the actors/actresses from the TV series did the voice-overs for their respective characters in the game and the voice actors for Mors and Alester did a perfect job portraying their characters. There's also an easter egg in the game where one of the NPCs is based off the author of the series George R. R. Martin.

The gameplay isn't much different from other tactical western rpgs out there. You can't pause the action completely as in games like Dragon Age: Origins, but combat can be slowed down drastically to allow you to plot out and execute attacks and other actions. You gain experience and level up like in pretty much all western rpgs. Most of the loot that can be found throughout the game is pretty generic, but there are a few pretty cool pieces of armor and weapons that can be obtained.

The story is where this game shines.
