Review: Game of Thrones: Episode Three - The Sword in the Darkness (Sony PlayStation 3)
31 March 2015
Summary: Episode Three is the worst of the bunch so far. It still has all of the technical problems we’ve come to hate, and it doesn’t even do anything of note with the story. It seems like a lazy attempt to get characters from the show on screen at best.
Review: Game of Thrones: Episode One - Iron From Ice (Sony PlayStation 3)

Summary: In typical Telltale Games fashion, Game of Thrones is a mixed bag. While it has a interesting story that follows three very different characters as they try go make it in a post Red Wedding world, it also has sever technical problems.

With George R.R Martin "writing like the wind" it's only a matter of time before fans continue to make their demands of the...
Excerpt: Why does any of this matter? Because when I say that Game of Thrones: The Role Playing Game is actually fairly entertaining, you know that it's coming from someone that's hard to please with this material.
Summary: Game of Thrones fans may want to experience this game, but it will take a herculean amount of patience to trudge through the technical problems and uninteresting characters. This is a game best left unplayed.
Pros: Environments are true to the story, All locations are accurate with Thrones lore
Cons: Technical mess, Uninspired voice acting, Boring storyling and characters
