    A brilliantly climactic finale that also sees Telltale taking a bold step forward in terms of gameplay by offering a substantially different playing experience dependent on player choice. If this is a foreshadowing of things to come, Telltale is bound to remain firmly upon the interactive movie throne.

    Fans of the books and TV series will love taking part in Martin's world.

    The finale is not perfect. The same old combat mechanics favoured by TellTale Games are still there with no variation, but the increased stakes make you fight harder.

    As far as season finales go, The Ice Dragon brings no shortage of excitement to the table, but fans looking for confirmation that their choices really mattered will be left disappointed.

    Telltale did a good job with Game of Thrones, writing an original story that can really live up to the original. Sadly, the inner narrative isn't as sound as it looks from the outside: the three plots don't intertwine, and they just go on separated paths, leading somehow to a shallow finale.

    The problem is that sense of inevitability mixes with the lack of resolution for major parts of the plot in an unappealing way.

    As a big fan of Telltale’s work, and a Game of Thrones aficionado, I found this to be a dismal letdown. I expected better – hell, I at least expected to feel something at the end of this chapter. Instead, I feel nothing. I’m just completely apathetic to the whole thing, and I feel no reason to be excited about a second season because, well… it’ll just be more of the same, if past experience is any indicator.

    have no idea why people are rating this episode so low, while loving the rest of the series.

    still have the same game of thrones feel to it
    have no idea why people are rating this episode so low, while loving the rest of the series.

    still have the same game of thrones feel to it as the previous episodes, and is really action packed too. your decisions also seem to matter for the first time in telltale history. without spoiling anything, i will just say that the game will actually punish you in some way if you are not careful.

    it also has an awesome ending cutscene where the main series actors narrate the happenings based on your actions. sure there are a lot of cliffhangers, but thats not a negative thing as far as i'm concerned, since that means that there might be a season two.

    overall i think this might be the best episode yet in the TTG game of thrones series.

    A great ending with impactful (and very tough) choices to make. Bleak, emotional and poignant juste like the book and the TV series.

    I feel like playing as Rodrik gave much more satisfaction because you could actually take revenge.

    I feel like playing as Rodrik gave much more satisfaction because you could actually take revenge.
    I don't really care if this was a setup for another season, a lot of games do that.

    The only thing that i did not like was that Mira's story felt rushed. But i enjoyed the episode. It was not bad.

    This is not how you end a season.
    While the whole game wasnt really all that interesting to me (although I'm a huge fan of the A Song Of Ice And Fire saga), the final episode was especially lackluster. There was no closure to the majority of characters and it was a painfully obvious setup for their next season, which will most likely be a cheap cash-crab after this introduction.
    I dont get how they can release something like this, after Tales From The Borderlands had such an epic and fantastic final.
    Skip this one and play Tales From The Borderlands instead.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Horrible. Liked most of the series but teltalle contiinues with it's ''choice matters - NOT''. SPOILERS AHEAD: No matter what you do, everybody dies. Every frickin body. (You can choose to save one person - although I gurantee that person will die in the next season episode 1). Some of the dilagoue is missing, sounds too. Some times the sound lag behind the voice.Horrible, never buying a teltalle game ever again. Expand
