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. It plays like a RTS game, so you make armies and they clash it out age of empires style (not total war style), lot of your time is spent acquiring towns through envoys (which is very boring since its all...

This Game is Lazy, Rushed and Bland

  • 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. One gets the impression that the game was designed and then, only after a license was acquired, some flavor text slapped together at the last minute and plugged in.

  • Excerpt: "...role of the head of a specific house in George RR Martins Game of Thrones universe, a very promising tag line indeed. Your role is to further the glory of your house through politics and warfare. Genisis has one major thing going for it, it's mechanics. They are inventive, creative and generally impressive. The developers went all out to focus on the political side to Game of Thrones instead of simply the aggressive warfare. However, apart from that ...
  • Pros: Interesting mechanics .
  • Cons: Poor singleplayer .  Badly designed combat .  Little longevity .

Décu

  • Summary: Ce jeu était pour mon fils de 13 ans. Il y a joué une fois et a été très déçu par le graphisme. C'est un grand fan de stratégie, il n'a pas accroché non plus à ce côté-là du jeu. On l'a déjà revendu.

Très déçus

Clafouti999, rue-hardware.com
13 June 2012
  • Summary: Fan des livres, j'attendais ce jeux avec impatience, et ma déception n'en a été que plus grande. Positif: on est bien dans l'univers de R.R.Martin Négatif: graphismes laids, modélisation 3D des personnages sommaire, système de combat inintéressant et fastidieux, plantages assez fréquents, déplacements imprévisibles de la caméra perturbant, système de déplacement des personnages en dépit du bon sens, jeux trop linéaire.
