Summary: This game is an RPG based on the Game of Thrones fantasy world. I will open this review by saying that I don't have any experience with the books or television show associated with this. But the story in this game, while it does reference some things from the books or TV show, you don't need to know about them in order to understand the game's story. It does a good job of informing you about who everyone is. The game's story is fantastic.
A game of Thrones a Tactical Intrigue game...not an action game!

Summary: I enjoyed this game but I must give the caveat that I love almost anything "Game of Thrones" related. I enjoyed the books, the television show, the living card game and the tactical board games (Battles of Westeros). This game gives a look to a time period in the first book of the Song of Ice and Fire series by George R R Martin and for what it is ,it is quite good. If you are looking for an action packed hack and slash game then that is not what you will find here.
Summary: As G.R.R. Martin show us in his world, this side story show us the worst part of Westeros, masked in a facade of chiavalry code and honor. Besides the games sidetracks in some parts (specially when you have to choose one of the heroes), and is filled with bugs, it's a nice gameing experience.
Summary: At first I was hesitant to buy this game based on some of its earlier reviews but now I am glad that I did. The game is set in Westeros about the same time as the events of the first book/season of A Game of Thrones by George R. R. Martin. You first play as a member of the Night's Watch station at the Wall in the far frozen north.
Summary: Play along with the Game of Thrones story from the top rated TV show on HBO. Now people should not think you are going to play a Skyrim game. The game is not a hack n slash RPG it is a "active slowdown tactical combat engine" what ever that means. The fighting system is not the greatest and is hard to work sometime. The storyline on the another hand is very good and has twist and turns. There are also cameos from Cersei, Varys, and others.
A treat for the Song of Ice and Fire Fan and fans of great story. Look elsewhere for dazzling gameplay.

Summary: I would probably give this 3.5 stars if I could, but I upscaled to 4 because i am hoping that fans of ASOIF and fans of good story telling in general will give this rough gem a chance. First, let's get the cons out of the way, because if any of these are deal breakers, then look elsewhere. 1. Graphics are adequate.
