The graphics are bland. The combat is subpar and the world feels dead. I still plan on playing through it for some trophies but I doubt I platinum it. I play about one chapter every few days it is about all that I can stomach.
If you find watching paint dry or timing just how fast cold molasses on a winter day can flow down a hill then you'll enjoy this game. The dialogue is as bland and slow as humanly possible without just staring at the other person. Combat isn't too bad, but trying to select skills to use on the fly is a bit troublesome, seeing how even though time slows down, you're still getting pummeled, and if you're getting low on health, you have to cancel all attacks, queue the healing skill, and pray you heal before taking the last bit of damage.

As I said in my title the potential is there but there are areas that are lacking.
Let's start with the good stuff, the story is amazing, for GRRM fans it's a great story with a good bit of detail on the land of Westeros and the characters there in. It stayed very true to the theme and feel of the novels. The side quests are full of bits of lore that do not drag you away from the min story but add to it.
The biggest problem I had with the game was the combat. The controls are clunky and the shift into a combat wheel takes away from the immersive quality of the over all story. When you have to control 3 different characters the mechanics lend no way of setting one character to do a specific thing like auto attack. You also can not set a team member to heal at certain percentage of health.
Other than the minor frustration with the combat system the game is over all very enjoyable.
