Conclusion: Even achievement hunters will have a good time with this title as almost none achievements require major effort. Overall, this is a good game which could have used some more polishing, but it's because of the great and gripping story that I can't complain much. Are you looking for some mature, fantasy entertainment? Than this game is for you.
Conclusion: I got used to skipping entire sets of dialog or checking facebook during the unskippable cutscenes. Did it grow on me enough to endorse it or play another game by Cyanide? No thank you. This game is for you if you like boring RPGs, easy GS, and shitty voice acting/graphics. Otherwise, run....or play it on an enemy's gamertag.
Conclusion: Game of Thrones is definitely worth a look if you have the patience to make it past the dull opening hours. If you're a fan of the books or the show, you'll enjoy the references to the wider lore, but you might enjoy the stilted combat, poor visuals and abhorrent voice acting a lot less. Hardened Game of Thrones fans need only apply.
Excerpt: Trigger warning: The Game Of Thrones video game often depicts violence against women and sexual assaults against both men and women. This review will discuss that violence. The accessibility review will not address any potentially triggering content, but if such things trigger you, you should avoid this game.
Conclusion: Overall, Game of Thrones is an excellent addition to the world that George R. R. Martin has created. The original characters mixed with the new characters come together quite well. The game feels faithful to the material, and because of its devotion, the story line is excellent. You’d expect nothing less from the master himself, and thankfully, we get a quality product. Unfortunately, there are just as many issues holding this game back from living up to its potential.
Conclusion: The story in Game of Thrones is its main strength and weakness. It's a strength because with fixed characters, Cyanide was able to link the past and present together to give events more depth, and they also did an excellent job of giving you motivation to kill the bad guys. I can't remember the last time I played an RPG and wanted to kill the last boss so much.
Excerpt: Middle ages are filled with chivalry, knights and heroes but there is also a darker side. Plots to overthrow the throne, sellswords killing people for a few coins and vagabonds lurking in the woods for their next target. Game of Thrones shows the grim side of that era and does it with amazing attention to every aspect of politics and bloodlines than any other game to date.
Pros: Very well written, Skinchanger ability, Plot twists
Excerpt: I've been playing this game for the past few days now but only in part. I've not seen, but only heard of the HBO TV series of the same. But from what I've heard and read the game seem to drift away from the actual TV series. However as I start to play Game of Thrones which is approximately thirty hours of playing time the game using the UnrealEngine3 you start out with a choice of one of three difficulty, your options are Squire, Knight or Lord.
Pros: Great storyline, Good graphics, Great voice acting
