Summary: 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.
Summary: The masochists' wet dream Also Known As Trollface: The Game It's as if the developers watched an entirely different Game of Thrones than I did. One where everything was set in stone, with mind-numbingly unbelievably corny and hyper-unrealistic personae and where there was no ultimate progression...
Summary: Pros: - The game offers some brutal deaths. BRUTAL. DEATHS. - Really good art style. REALLY. GOOD. - Conversations with main characters is pretty cool. ESPECIALLY. TYRION. Cons: - Your dialogue choices DO NOT MATTER a great deal.
Summary: Just a standard run of the mill telltale game with really nothing new to show you expect a different license. Now thats not a bad thing, but the optimization of this game is for 2015 unacceptable, and telltale should finally do something with theyre ancient engine theyre using for so long now.
Summary: One of the first things that strikes me about A Game of Thrones: Genesis is how bland it is. Before even talking about mechanics or gameplay or graphics or anything else that makes a game AGOT:G fails because it doesn't completely embrace the source material it purportedly represents.
Summary: I enjoy RTS games, not as much as RPG's but being fed the tactical base building warcraft style from a early age. One can appreciate a much different approach. However, despite my intrigue A Game of Thrones just doesn't intrigue. The game is not superficial with the a song of ice and fire universe.
I bought this game of Steam on launch day... read before you buy.

Summary: First off, this game is not well polished at all. Mods for Mount and Blade Warband, or Medieval Total War that are based on A Song of Ice and Fire are much better then this game. However, this game is not horrible, it is very political, which is what makes it unique.
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.
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.
