    If you loved the last series by Telltale, don't expect anything new from Game of Thrones. But if you're a big fan of Martin's fantasy saga you'll find those atmospheres, that characters ambiguity, that violence mixed with pettiness and intrigue that serves as a perfect springboard to dive into the usual Telltale game style.

My confidence in the preorder was not let down when I played GoT. The game definitely has the same shock and awe factor as the TV series, (I haven't read the books so I can't make a comparison to that). The video game adaptation is also beautiful and retains the whole GoT atmosphere. The decisions you make seem to matter a little; however the end of Episode 1 remains unchanged no matter what you did. Perhaps TellTale is trying to keep the story in line with the books? I guess we will see in the upcoming episodes. Overall, I heavily recommend this game. If you love Game of Thrones, you will love this! +1 for the GoT theme within the game! Expand

After playing "the wolf among us" i had hoped the interface would be similar but this is not the case, instead of the 4 somewhat distant option squares you get a list, so when you need to choose dialog it is easier to make a mistake especially with the mouse problems mentioned above.

Typical Telltale, linear game where the only difference your choices make (with the exception of one) is that certain people are more pissed off with you. The game always ends up with the same damn endings, just like "The Walking Dead"

    Can't recommend at the $20 price tag, really. Watch the TV show instead or better yet read the books.

It is clearly just a way to cash in on theThis game is not fun to play, and it's main selling point, the story, is not that interesting. It is clearly just a way to cash in on the large fanbase of the Game of thrones series. You don't need to make a good game to entice already devoted fans, just include some memorable characters from the show and you're good!

    Game of Thrones: A Telltale Games Series, does not offer any additional value to the show. It is the same intrigues from the show all over, which shouldn't be a problem since it is a Telltale game where your dialogue options are supposed to alter the story. My main issue with this is that the dialogue options are all the same! You often get three dialogue options to pick from, but they all point towards the same end, and so in the end it doesn't matter what you choose.

    Pros:
    +Real, well animated characters from the television series.

    Cons:
    -Bland color palette
    -Boring story
    -Bugged controls
    -Blocky graphics. Previous telltale titles look much better for some reason. Guess they didn't have the budget for this one... oh wait!

    Stay away from this one, unless you are a really diehard fan of the Game of thrones series.
