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.
Summary: This game pays tribute to the story telling style of Martin's books by switching perspective every chapter. The only issue for the game is that this creates a very linear and limited story line. You can not leave the cities you are at or do many side quests since you will have to end at a set point to pick up with the new perspective. The battle system is extremely limited and boring. You simply select an enemy and select an attack.
