Decent for fans of the show and novels, disappointing for everyone else

Summary: Aesthetically, the Game of Thrones game captures the TV's dark tone beautifully. The environments are meticulously crafted and walking though some of the show's popular scenery is very exciting. The narrative also does a good job of keeping players engaged throughout, even if it lacks the complex character development of George Martin's novels. Unfortunately, the gameplay is absolutely terrible.
The voice acting and story are good but not much else

Summary: Bottom line on this game is don't pick it up unless you are a huge fan of the Song of Ice and Fire series. The graphics and camera are pretty horrible but the voice acting and story are decent. The combat is also a nice mix of real time combined with a slow down feature to select special abilities. For the average gamer I would stay away from this title as there are just much better RPGs out there.
Summary: I got this at a crazy deal and would buy again at this price. If paying full price you should definitely read a few reviews before purchasing. I didn't make it super far into the game (yet) but it seems like they got a license to use the universe of GoT but not the characters so it's a little bit of a lore bummer for me.
Worth a play if you liked Dragon age Origins and Game of Thrones

Summary: The gameplay is cumbersome, the story is unnecessarily dark, the characters are ridiculously periferal to the books and show, but if you can get past all of that there is some fun to be had with this game. The combat can be fun and the ending is relatively well done. Only play if it is under $20, you are patient, and you are a fan of both DAO and GOT.

Summary: I was really hoping this would be a good game. Well, unfortunately, it isn't. The game just is a pain to play and not very good. But, the art book is very nice! And since I only paid less than 10 bucks, I won't complain too much. Had I paid the normal price, it would have been a one star.
Summary: This was purchased for my son and he already has decided to sell it. He says the graphics are all old school and not enjoyable to play. He loves the game of thrones books and the HBO series (He's 21) but didnt think this was up to snuff.
Summary: The recent Dragon Age and Witcher games have shown there is huge interest in dark and mature tales of fantasy in the video game realm. It seems only fitting then that the megahit fantasy book series, George R.R. Martin's "A Tale of Ice and Fire" and the HBO adaptation, Game of Thrones, join in on the action. The series seems a perfect fit for a western RPG, and in many aspects it is. Knights battle for duty and honor.
Summary: This game didnt get much love and the major game reviews sites almost completely ignored it upon release. But I picked it up when the price dropped. There nothing *completely* broken about the game, so ignore the one star reviews. It is however a very flawed game with an astonishingly dark and riveting storyline that also happens to have uniformly great voice acting throughout.
