It's a shame that most will not have the wherewithal to endure the 20 or so hours of bad game to get to the really juicy story moments. The twists that are thrown are guaranteed to surprise. Unfortunately you'll need to wade through an often ugly, buggy, and poorly delivered mess to get to them. The good parts of the game just make the ugly ones stand out even more and though the plot is there, you have to trudge through a lot of mud to get any enjoyment out of it.
Presentation - 6.5
The story is the one thing that stands out in the game, but it's surrounded by lazy voice acting, and poorly textured environments.
Graphics - 3.5
The main characters have some impressive armor, but others look like little to no effort was put forth in their creation. Even characters from the television show are barely recognizable.
Sound - 4
Aside from the music track used in the HBO series, there's little else to remember here. Dialogue is delivered with little conviction at times and sounds will occasionally cut out.
Gameplay - 6
At moments it feels incredibly repetitive, but the combat keeps the intensity up by using slow-down to keep you on edge. There are also dialogue moments in the game that have you make major decisions that impact your outcome.
Lasting Appeal - 4
Aside from going back to an earlier save to see an alternate ending, there is little reason to return to the game. The only reason it will sit with you is if you finish all 15 chapters to see the surprising conclusion.
Final Score: 4 out of 10
