Excerpt: "Most men would rather deny a hard truth than face it." — Tyrion Lannister Whether you're a fan or not, HBO has made it clear that you should be watching Game of Thrones . 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 series in hopes that their favourite characters will survive.
Excerpt: If you’re a fan of George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire books, you’d be right to worry about a new Game of Thrones game from Cyanide. The first PC title, developed by a different dev house within Cyanide, didn’t exactly set the world ablaze. Although A Game of Thrones: Genesis tried and failed to find unique and fun twists on the strategy genre, this second game, an RPG, takes a very different approach: Mimic what works.
Pros: Interesting, well-told story, Seeing Westeros close up, Lots of stats and skill trees
Cons: Some false sense of choice, Sub-par textures and animation, Combat can get repetitive
Conclusion: This is the game of Game of Thrones – there isn’t much more to say than that. Everything other than the story – the gameplay, the graphics and so on – are all standard RPG fare. Playing the game, you get the feeling it is really not trying to make you believe it is the best game you’ve ever played. While there are a few miner drawbacks, nothing leaps out at me so my job is brutally easy.
Pros: Fitting story. Quality characters and voice-acting.
Excerpt: With the HBO adaptation of the George RR Martin novels sitting high and mighty on the Iron Throne of television right now, a video game adaptation was inevitable. So far, those incarnations of the world of Westborous have failed to live up to the high standard set by the show itself, but can Game Of Thrones, live up to the impossible standards of the show, or should it be banished to a lifetime of service in the Night Watch?
Excerpt: There just had to be a video game based on George R.R. Martin’s A Song Of Ice And Fire books. After HBO aired a very well-made 10 episode series of the first book, there was no way around it. But somewhat unexpected, this first game is neither an RPG or action game, nor is it particularly close to the books.
Summary: Game of Thrones var ikke den oplevelse jeg havde håbet på. Det er en lineær fortælling, med et kampsystem der egner sig bedre til et open world univers. Det er muligt at fans af serien, vil finde det spændende at rende rundt i universet, og der er måske også enkelte der kan lide kampmekanikken.
Excerpt: Quelques mois après la sortie de Game of Thrones : Le Trône de Fer ( voir notre test PC ), les développeurs français de chez Cyanide et son éditeur Focus sortent le premier véritable contenu additionnel : Au-delà du Mur. Vendu 5 euros sur les plate-formes de téléchargement, ce DLC s'axe autour des origines de Mors Westford, depuis sa filiation avec l'espèce canine jusqu'au titre de Boucher qui a fait son inquiétante renommée.
