Summary: this game looks like a ps2 game voice acting is terrible, gameplay is like a slightly better dragon age origins, but the story is sooooo good. the story is so good with the twist and turns betrayels and friendships it made me forget the bad. ONLY because im a GoT fan...if this wasnt in westeros followin the hbo series first season and some years before i would have given this game a much lower score.
Summary: Though a bit dated by modern gaming standards and not very pleasing to the eye, Game of Thrones game is perfect for ASOIAF fans. This was definitely made by people that knew the story they built upon. This game is built on an old PC style of RPG where you select attacks and the fighting is automatic. If you're looking for something Bethesda-esque and new, this might not be for you.
Summary: I like the game and it is wonderful to see the lands and things while the show is in the off season but the game play is a little awkward. As a gamer who likes hack and slash games I was super excited about hacking and slashing in the world of game of thrones however, the game play uses skills in what I feel is a clunky way. You pick three "moves" at a time while fighting. I assume that I'm just not used to this way of playing and as a result I don't really like it.
Summary: This game currently holds s 52.86% score on GameRankings. The user score on MetaCritic is even less. So it's average. And having played for about 10 hours now, it's average. It captures the shows vulgarity perfectly (Which my girlfriend, who read the books, felt the show captured a whole new level of vulgarity than the books).
Summary: Game of Thrones for the PS3 is billed as a prequel to the HBO series. What it really is is a prequel to a fully finished game. We adore the Game of Throne series on TV as well as the books. We've seen the series many times. We were enthusiastically looking forward to the game release. We were disappointed with what the game provided. The game starts out seeming interesting.
Summary: Being a HUGE Game of Thrones fan (I'm on book 4) I was really excited about this game. Sometimes I think the developers forget a game should be fun, not work. I'm an older gamer so simplicity is for me - figuring out the fighting system in this game is a nightmare. Graphics are fair-sometimes things disappear. Since I prefer just adventure I really wish games had a way to get around the fighting parts. Pass on the full price of this one and buy on sale.
