Good

Intended For Fans of the Series

This game was definitely geared towards fans of the GOT series, and I must say that being a fan myself, I don't think that this game lives up to the terrible reviews given by gamespot and IGN. Minus a few glitches here and there, and a repetetive combat system this was a pretty good game, especially once you're on about your second hour of gameplay. This is where things really pick up in the game with both Alester and Mors being caught in some intrigue with plenty of twists and turns. This game offers a very dynamic story that has you satisfied with each of it's four endings. The combat reminds me a lot of the original Dragon Age, where you are picking commands in real time, and switching to the next available partner when you are knocked out in battle. Levelling up and creating a character can be a bit confusing considering that there is no real explanation of the different perks and character traits. Just a brief couple of notes. The variety of classes between the two characters are all very diverse and true to the characters as well as the world of Westeros. I picked a Hedge Knight for Mors since he wielded a great two-handed sword in the book, and the Waterdancer for Alester, since he was a sword of Braavos in the story. (If you don't know where or what Braavos or Westeros is this game's storyline is not for you). Another thing I will argue against in the bad reviews is the voice acting. While still not being as good as Mass Effect for example, It still has a very diverse range of voice actors and a compelling story line. The only thing I didn't like about the dialogue sequences were hand gestures and mouth movements that seemed to be done almost at random. Altogether I would say this is a good game, and I give it a 7/10. Thanks for reading.
