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.

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.

Let me start this off by saying I am new to the series. I have never read the books and I am about half way through the first season of the HBO series. So before playing the game for the first time I was aware of some characters, locations and lore but not much.

Gameplay:
As many have stated this game plays like what Dragon Age 2 should have played like. Some people have called the fighting boring, I would have to disagree. The combat is fun and rewards tactics. (IF you don't play of easy, which I assume you can just press the attack button a few times and wait for your foes to die) Much like Dragon Age 2, Combat at the start of the game is a little boring since you have yet to unlock skills and executions but by the middle of the game when hordes are crashing down on you it's rewarding to strategize a battle plan and not simply button mash your opponents into oblivion. (Hint: Make sure to utilize your dog as much as possible later in the game and on harder settings. The dog has saved me from the load screen on many occasions.)

Apart from the actual combat the rest of the gameplay is like your other RPGS. Exploring areas results in hidden compartments of cash and loot. There is not a lot of loot but it is worth searching around. Also searching with your dog lets you find loot that otherwise wouldn't not be available to simply pick up. (I didn't figure that out until about chapter 6 or I'm sure I would have found even more loot. An Example, there may be a fire pit that you have checked out with your character, if you switch to your dog and search the same fire pit all of a sudden there is a nice sword in there for you)

The Real Gem of the Game of Thrones is simple the story.

Kids with ADD will not like this game, that much is clear. But if you are an adult gamer who used to enjoy "old school" 90s PC RPGs and happen to be a fan of GRRM, then you will most likely love this story driven game.

The voice acting is actually very good, and if you're a fan of the show, you'll feel right at home (especially since the music is the same). The graphics are serviceable, and the RPG elements are quite detailed, though again, suffer from some old school game design choices.

One particularly cool thing is that your dialogue choices directly affect your character perks/development.

The combat is not really turn based... more of a "slow down time to a crawl and queue up your next skills and actions" thing. It works well, and is challenging. You'll have to constantly choose the best weapon to deal with the enemy's armor.

The cutscenes are great, lots of dialogue, excellent codex. If you're a true fan of the books and show and don't get scared away by non-AAA game budgets, you'll love this. It is a quality game.

I throughly enjoyed this game, and I have been playing RPGs since the 90s. This is definitely one of the best video game adaptations of film or TV I have played - they are usually absolutely terrible.

Pros:
1. Story - Some people said it started off slow, I felt interested right from the start to see where the story would go
2. Character development system is awesome - I love the strength/weakness balance aspect
3. Battle system - I love the battle system for this, but then again, I was in a minority (in terms of overall gamers, not RPG players) who loved a similar one in Dragon Age: Origins

Cons:
1. Minor but noticeable graphic issues take away from immersion in the story - For example, during conversation the transition between each dialogue sentence is not very smooth
2. Not much "open world" - I usually enjoy a more open world, not necessarily as open as Skyrim, but more open than this.

If your only journey into the realm of RPG is Skyrim, and you're expecting Skyrim, you will be disappointed. If you're expecting non-stop action, you'll be disappointed. There is far more story here than battle. If you haven't read the books, you may feel like you're missing something.

I've played a lot of terrible RPGs, this isn't one of them. Could they have improved a few aspects? Absolutely, but they have made something that overall is enjoyable and worth playing.

First I was kind of unpleasantly surprised - the game has a quasi turn-based combat. But eventually it made sense. It is a story heave game, with long cut scenes, and a lot of dialogues. As a fan of the books, I really like it.
As I prefer RPGs that stress a story, I am really happy with this one.
The rest - visuals, sound, and such are good enough for me. The game definitely does not look like my favorite wallpaper generator Skyrim ;), but for a small team on a tight budget it is understandable.
I gave 5 stars for a bundle. The art book is a nice touch, good quality, and free. BTW, I pre-odered this in February, so I got this bundle for 44.99, and I am glad that I did.

As a fan of the Game of Thrones HBO series (but having never read any of the books) I was somewhat skeptical about this game as I have been burned in the past by the shallow gameplay offered in licensed titles, but decided to preorder it nonetheless. Then on Release day I read numerous reviews from sources such as GameInformer, IGN, and others that completely lambasted this title. I came very close to returning the game without even opening it, but after thinking on it a while changed my mind and gave it a try. I am very glad that I did. What I found was a game that, while flawed, appeals to fans of old school Western RPGs quite well.

The leveling system is actually quite cool; for example character traits are built throughout the course of the game based on the decisions you make. Did you decide to have Mors (one of the two main characters) mercilessly torture a prisoner to death? Now he has a bonus due to his callous nature. In addition, your choices throughout the game affect the outcomes of certain plot threads. Unlike a certain other popular franchise, however, you will never be presented with a ghost child that forces you to choose between three colors for the ending. Instead the ending choices have meaning, consequences, and closure.

The story for this game is quite compelling. Without spoiling too much, I'll just say that the story slightly precedes and then parallels events of the first season/book, and feels like a natural part of the George R.R. Martin world. As with the the books and the show, there are no 'good' guys, just bad guys, worse guys, and not quite as bad guys.

There is one area where the critics weren't too far off and that is in the graphics department.
