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. 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! AN EXCLUSIVE NEW ADVENTURE DRIPPING WITH AUTHENTICITY For fans hungry for more Game of Thrones content, the game's story - available nowhere else - opens up another part of George R. R. Martin's enthralling world, putting players in the shoes of two former soldiers of Robert's Rebellion who have made choices that led them in different directions. Now, despite divergent goals, they must come together to deal with common enemies, surviving countless battles and foiling the plot that threatens the kingdom. FEEL TIME SLOW IN THE HEAT OF BATTLE Combat mirrors the series' thoughtful approach to war and politics: fighting slows but never stops entirely, forcing the player to make quick, pressured choices before their enemy strikes again.

4.0 out of 5 stars This review will morph as I delve deeper May 19, 2012
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I received this game as a gift from my daughter. The first thing we both commented on was the graqphics. They are wonderful. As a lover of the game Skyrim, that is where my comparisons will mostly be coming from. (I just got into XBox 360 about 6 months ago as an avid PC gamer that was reluctant to switch).

So far, this game doe some one upmanship on my beloved Skyrim. The dialog choices are very enjoyable as it allows you to choose a course for the dialog instead of a line by line choice. It makes the story feel more real. Also, the battle sequences are more interactive as you are allowed to alter tactics DURING the fighting.

The generation of characters are limited to the sole character(s) {there will be two that you control as the story develops} but you direct the TYPE of fighter and the type of "Red Priest" you will represent.

I have just begun, but stay tuned as I take you deeper into the game with me.

So, I have decided to play it two ways. One as a fair "Eddard Stark" type, and one as a real jerk. So far...a very different experience even early on!

I love a game that throws a curve at me. I was beginning to feel as if it had become too linear, however, the Red Priest story line is becoming my favorite part of the game. I will say that I do feel a bit guided by the game at times. I like games (like Skyrim) that don't force you to finish one set event.

Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I admit that I feel sorry for this game. Created by a small development studio with an even smaller budget, it's attempting to give justice to one of the most complex and interesting fantasy settings in recent history. Despite insight from George R.R. Martin and help from the show producers and actors, the game was shuffled out the door with no advertising at all. It was basically doomed to fail at market, which is a true shame, since the game is actually quite good. Putting aside all of the misdirection in how the game release was handled, I will try to give you a good idea of what exactly you'll be getting in this game.
Game of Thrones (the game) puts a large emphasis on story and character, which should be no surprise to fans of the series. Without giving any spoilers, the story progresses through the view of two characters. The first, Mors, is a black brother at the wall who is a disgraced former knight that took the black to avoid the noose. He is gruff, remorseless, and fits in very well with the harsh conditions in the north. The second is Alester Sarwyk, who is in the south, and is the eldest son of a noble family that controls an area known as Riverwood. After learning that his father has died, Alester comes back from exile, where he had learned the ways of the Red Priests. His pious devotion to his God puts him at odds with the rest of his men, and his is the story of an elder son trying to claim his birthright. The story is actually quite well told, with some voice actors from the show giving their performances. There are twists that you'll expect, along with some that come out of nowhere and leave you happily taken aback. Overall, the story does a great job of capturing the complex political machinations and gray morality that makes it so entertaining.
