Game of Thrones

True achievements
8 July 2012
  • 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.

Expert Review

  • Excerpt: There is probably a great role-playing game to be made out of George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire novels, but Game of Thrones isn't it.

Game of Thrones brings the pain…and not in a good way (review)

venturebeat.com
14 May 2012
  • Conclusion: Once again, if this had been something like a short spin-off novel, it might have worked. It would have ruined the reader’s entire day, but it might have worked. It also would have gotten its business done a lot quicker. Instead, the interactive version stretches all that doom and brutality over 15 or 20 hours, and the gameplay filling space in between doesn’t do much to ease the pain. Somebody may one day make a fine game out of the Song of Ice and Fire.
  • Pros: Well-crafted side-story plot Despite the obvious logo and stirring theme music from the HBO TV adaptation, this is a production for fans of George Martin’s novels. The plot and even some of the gameplay systems hinge on dozens of details from the books that the TV version’s writers either cut out or simply haven’t gotten to yet. Some bits won’t fully make sense to players who haven’t read all five, although by and large you can get away with having just read the origi...
  • Cons: Unpolished combat, interface, scenario design… Unfortunately, this is not that better game. Start with the combat system, a massively-multiplayer-style scheme that takes place in not-quite real time. Players can pause in between dealing out automatic attacks to slow time down to a crawl, access a sub-menu, and queue up special attacks. Well and good in theory but not so effective in this particular execution. Battles here need much more feedback of every kind. Visual ...

Game Of Thrones

Empire Online
5 July 2012
  • Summary: Whether or not you fall for this digital interpretation of the first season of HBO’s Game Of Thrones – which is also shaped by the dark’n’sexy action in George RR Martin’s first A Song Of Ice And Fire novel – depends on what you want most from this fantasy experience. For fans of the books and TV show, the game plot – which follows the fortunes of two new characters, but touches on events that’ll be familiar to the Game Of Thrones hardcore – is consistent with the...

  • Excerpt: Fantasiakirjailija George R.R. Martinin suomalaisittain kirjoitettava Tulen ja jään laulu on sarja fantasianovelleja, johon on tätä kirjoittaessa julkaistu viisi osaa, uusin on viime vuonna julkaistu A Dance with Dragons. Tulen ja jään laulu -sarjan ensimmäinen osa, A Game Of Thrones julkaistiin vuonna 1996, jonka pohjalta on myös potkittu käyntiin HBO:n tuottama TV-sarja. YLEn kanavalla pyörii tällä hetkellä kanavan ensimmäinen tuotantokausi.
  • Pros: + Käyttöliittymä ja nopeasti omaksuttavat kontrollit, + Roolipelielementit päällisin puolin kunnossa
  • Cons: - Ääninäyttelyssä paljon parantamisen varaa, - Lataustaukoja ja välianimaatioita toinen toisensa perään, - Pelin maailmassa on kovin vähän tutkailtavaa tai tekemistä, - Grafiikka on melko mitäänsanomatonta, - Musiikin puute, - Tunnnelmaa ei juuri ole

Game of Thrones - Recensione

Everyeye Network
6 August 2012
  • Summary: Con vero rammarico, dobbiamo bocciare l’ultimo lavoro di Cyanide Software per un titolo che aveva destato il nostro piu’ feticistico interesse. Dati i problemi di gameplay, di tecnica e di generale noia che traspaiono da ogni istante, l’unico motivo per cui potreste acquistare questo titolo e’ il vivere la trama che propone, con personaggi davvero interessanti e articolati, ma affossati completamente da un comparto tecnico da dimenticare e un combat system senza alcuna...

PC World
11 June 2012
  • Excerpt: Alors que la saison 2 de Game of Thrones bat son plein aux Etats Unis, voici que débarque dans nos contrées une seconde adaptation en jeu vidéo, un RPG made in Cyanide. On ne vous le cache pas, le studio français n’a pas fait d’étincelles.
  • Pros: Les voix et dialogues, Un effort d'écriture
  • Cons: Ouh que c’est laid, Ergonomie douteuse, Système de combat mollasson, Zones à explorer étriquées
