Reviews and Problems with A Game of Thrones: Genesis
Showing 1-10 of 90

Summary: The realm A Game of Thrones takes place in is wondrous, exciting, imaginative and unique. Regrettably, the same cannot be said for the game--mainly due to the fact that it does not immerse you in this world and the game mechanics are not polished. In retrospect, it seems as if the game fails to deliver because of lazy developers.
Summary: SAVE YOUR MONEY!!!! I downloaded this via Steam hoping to find an exciting RTS based on the wonderful Song of Ice and Fire story. What I received was a snooze-fest of a game. My roommate also played the game and we are in full agreement it sucks on a massive scale. First off I've seen better graphics on my smart phone. The character movements are extremely slow. The first few missions make me feel like I am Bill Murray in Groundhog's Day.
Summary: This game is pure garbage, and I wish I had saved my money. Controls are antiquated,with no hotkeys, Nothing of note or groundbreaking, just horrible game that you feel like came from 1995 era RTS explosion. Even the Encyclopedia is light, with very limited and not very detailed information. Save your money, and time and play rock, paper, scissors, because this is what this game is about, and has very very poor mechanics and adaptation of the George RR Martin world.
Summary: Very disappointed. Thought I was buying a fun wargame which uses the Game of Thrones lore, and instead it ended up looking like a very generic boring type of game with little combat and slow-paced diplomacy with no real depth. Just send your envoy, capture a random "town", gain more gold, rinse and repeat.
Summary: FUUUUUUUUUUUU, what is this crap??? Anyone trying to make the argument that this is anything but a garbage television ripoff has never played a good game before. Please keep your useless comments to yourselves so you don't confuse people and trick them into giving money to this dreadful developer, who should be burned at the stake for this desecration of GRRM's universe.
Summary: This game exhibits a stunning lack of depth. It is as though it were produced for play on machines from 3 generations ago and after they had implemented the lackluster graphics they decided that they should limit additional features to ensure that players could run it. More ridiculous then even the lack of depth is the publisher's decision to use tages, the most draconian of antiquated DRM schemes.
Summary: As a fan of the Game of Thrones series, I was enthusiastic about the release of this game and the boasting of his in depth gameplay. I was immediately smacked in the face with reality upon loading this game for the first time. First, the opening cinematics wouldn't display and the PC would just hang a black screen.
Summary: I'm sorry, this is not a "political simulation" nor a "diplomacy-heavy" game. Europa Universalis is, Civilization is to some extent, but this is not. The "diplomatic and political" aspects of this game involve capturing towns with envoy characters and using crappy rock-paper-scissor mechanics for all other units.
Summary: Gameplay that would feel right at home in the early 90's are the most forgivable of this games many faults. The campain and skirmish modes lack all that made the books so great. The ai is terrible, the political and underhanded side of the game is insulting after reading what the devs/publishers had to say..
Summary: Some people here must be joking. Cyanides own forums is teeming over with people who are literally pissed off at this game for not delivering what it promised. Basically what it is, is a very shallow world, if we take the HvH mode. No location or city or town got any names assigned to them. Your own capital town is called Feudal home. Very rich, very immersive.
