    Game of Thrones copies the well the world and spirit of its source material, however the story and characters don’t achieve the same levels. [Dec 2015]

    A season that began with much promise doesn’t quite deliver by the time the sixth and final episode’s credits roll. Some fine characters and a real sense of what makes the Game of Thrones universe tick mean this is worth checking out if you crave more stories from Westeros and beyond in the wait for more books and TV episodes.

    The first season is one that is full of hard choices and a lot of sacrifice and feels very much in line with what fans have come to expect from Game of Thrones, but just how much all of this will matter has been hidden away for a second season.

    If you're a fan of Game of Thrones, Telltale's version is a must buy. It fleshes out the universe in a great way, with a really exciting story and a great cast of characters – you know, the way Telltale usually rolls. The game is however not without its flaws, including crammed in book characters, boring storylines and a tempo that sometimes is a drag.

    The story rarely establishes itself as anything more than big budget fan fiction.

    I won’t give another Telltale game two pages in our magazine again, until they’ve cleaned up their shit and made some actual technical improvements. The world keeps turning, please try to keep up. [feb. 2016 / page 061]

    Even if you’re a fan of the books or HBO show, there’s not much incentive to play Telltale’s Game of Thrones.

    What Kind of Adventure?

    Graphic Adventure

    Was it fun?

    I don’t think I can say enough positive things about this game. I enjoyed every second of it. Its not really playing a game, its more like watching where you can control what happens and some of the dialog.

    Are there any similar games?

    This is my first telltale game but I think they’re pretty much all the same.

    Favorite Character?

    Asher-He was a sarcastic **** who got **** done. He was a very enjoyable character to play as.

    Would you play it again?

    Yes, as a matter of fact. I am playing it again right. Well right now, I am not playing it again but I am watching my friends play for the first time and as much fun watching them play.

    Any Complaints?

    None for me. I could see where people would complain about the game. I get the feeling that your decisions don’t effect the game as much as people would like. Some people would want every decision to completely alter the game and give them a different ending but that’s just not practical.

    Secondly the game is full of slow moments were almost nothing happens and where the discussions doesn't seem to have any importance.

    On the other side each episode also has those high-tension or epic moments. And there is also major changes on the story depending on your choices (my girlfriend and I have don't have the same ending at all) and I'm curious to see how it will continue on Season two, it's the first time the choices matter that much in a TellTale game and that's a good thing. And obviously the Game of Thrones universe, with actors from the actual show actually playing their role was great.

    In conclusion the game has a mixed writing, bad technical qualities, but builds momentum on an expected season and on the whole universe of GoT in general, an experience that may please some but for the moment I'll wait to see the second season to see if they build on this season and improve the global experience or if it stills lack rhythm.

Really enjoyed it until the last episode as it felt like it was one upping the shocks of the show but for the wrong reasons. Performance isn't brilliant even with playing it on the PS4 and graphics are almost PS2 standard but for me that's not an issue. Expand

    Playability is fine, graphics are mediocre, story is poor, characters are uninteresting. Choices are particularly irrelevant, like, at least in other games Telltale bothered to expand the consequences of each choice. Here, they just laugh in your face. Here, they're so blatant with the illusion of choice that it becomes annoying.
    Overall, a bland game. You can tell that it was made without any passion, only for profit, taking advantage of the success that Game of Thrones was at the time. And just like in the show, the developers just kill characters here and there for the sake of shock value, thinking that they're imitating well the essence of GRRM's work. They cannot see that the reason why many important characters die in ASOIAF goes far beyond that, so they start a butchery with fatal results for the story.
