    Though hard to grasp for the uninitiated, Telltale's Game of Thrones is a truly meaty addition to the established tale, creating a gut-twisting fantasy drama that will leave you feeling absolutely awful, just like Game of Thrones should.

    Telltale’s Game of Thrones should be the end of any debate as to whether or not Telltale can apply its adventure game formula to any adaptation you throw at it. I saw things in Telltale’s rendition of the Game of Thrones universe that rivaled the awfulness I’ve seen on the show. I jumped from playing the post-apocalyptic Fallout 4 to playing Game of Thrones and didn’t feel like I was killing any fewer people.

    The gameplay in Game of Thrones is a bit more passive than most games and might be difficult to follow for people new to the franchise, but it does offer a strong story that fits right into the Game of Thrones lore. It has the same fantastic way of taking you into this fantasy world filled with surprising and shocking moments.

    The season does end on a strong note, with plenty of bloodshed, and a special mystery with what Gared finds in the North past the wall. It's too bad that the some of the season's highest points are little more than a setup for the next season. I admit that there were a few intense situations, like poking a guy's eye out, but they are overshadowed by the fact that my choices generally didn't much matter in a game with the primary focus on decision making--underscored by how the same one eyed-man still talked crap to the cripple that beat him up.

    If Telltale can figure out a way to weave together all of the possible branches in the story to create a second season (and beyond), then that will hopefully make all of the doom and gloom from the first season more worthwhile. But if Telltale has painted themselves into a corner, and this season is it, then I wouldn’t recommend the game at all, unless your idea of fun is getting punched in the face repeatedly.

    ​Game of Thrones gets the feel of Martin's universe right, but it relies too heavily on familiar themes to form a memorable identity of its own.

    Throughout this cynical gaming experience, the message of the show seems clearer than ever: reject dignity or die.

My confidence in the preorder was notI preordered this game as I own all the previous games by TellTales and I know just how great they are. 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

I think most people expect Telltales "games" to be slightly interactive movies that include your input enough to make you feel involved in the story. I agree that your choices don't really impact much of the outcome, but it's really well done. It's not as good as the best GoT TV eps, but it is certainly better than some of them. It's an interesting, varied, complex story that's well voiced, which for me are the most important parts of games like this. Absolutely love the art style. I thought it concluded well, assuming there's a season two. Would love to give this a 7.5 if the scoring system permitted, but I don't feel it's quite an 8. Seems like it could be considered canon, at least for the TV series. Expand

    The art direction is pretty and hearing and "seeing" the cast is a welcome experience, the whole game is just smoke and mirror. It's true thatThe art direction is pretty and hearing and "seeing" the cast is a welcome experience, the whole game is just smoke and mirror. It's true that it's more of a visual novel than a game, your choices don't really matter. It's quite transparent that you're playing as the Stark family, even though it's a "new" family, only mentioned in the books. To be honest as a visual novel it's pretty decent, some of the story elements are exciting and the multiple different characters you control splitting the storyline in 4 is a great idea. Overall I can't really judge it as a game, but as an interactive story it's not bad, I had some infuriating and some fun moments with it. It's a light 6 for me. Expand

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Considering you play telltale games largely for the plot you'd have thought telltale would put the most amount of effort into that area. Obviously not. Telltale thinks "shock" writing = good writing, which is definitely not the case. Having the bad guys ALWAYS win, regardless of your own personal choices, is bad writing plain and simple. Having a majority of your characters butchered regardless of your ingame choices is also bad writing.
    It got to a point with choices where I was like "f*ck it, who cares what I pick, my characters probably going to die anyway".
    The final episode was so open ended and weak I found myself having literally no investment in the outcomes of the game.

    Overall just extremely disappointing.
