    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.

While some may say the ending isn't satisfying I would say that it's a perfect setup for a second season, if they don't decide to carry it on, which would be completely ridiculous and stupid due to how much they set it up for one, then if an open ending bothers you don't buy it but if you're okay with it then definitely buy this game. If there is a second season this could be one of the greatest game series ever because of how powerful your choices are and how great the story is. 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

    A promising opening with the first 3 episodes, only for the final three to be complete buildup towards a real conflict resolution that neverA promising opening with the first 3 episodes, only for the final three to be complete buildup towards a real conflict resolution that never comes. The 'finale' is the final nail in the coffin as it abruptly ends without conclusion to any plotlines, which sets up for a 'season two'. Not to mention that this series was supposed to be completed and released before the tv season 5. (Ep 1 released on Dec 2 2014, episodes meant to bimonthly but ended up being delayed so much that ep 6 released Nov 17 2015)

    Avoid Telltale for a few years, their incompetence is just leaves their players wanting and disappointed.

    Not recommended,

    Don't ever feel doubt when choosing something, your choices don't matter at all.

This is less of a game a more of a test of you r personal pain threshold. Everything is bad and there is nothing you can do about it. Why would anyone want to play this? Anyone who completes all six episodes is a masochist. Shame on everyone who worked on this god forsaken hell posing as an interactive experience. Expand
