Not what I expected....

Well sadly I was incredibly let down...

First there were the bad graphics.
Then the long load lag between rooms or chapters.
Then the, for whatever reason, long game download to even play it.
Story sucked...I honestly expected a great deal more from the author of GOT. I mean really he actually signed off thinking this would be great? No one ever said anything about "Hey you might want to rethink some of this..." The story was a huge let down come the end as I couldn't believe what was going on. All this work and

They both pretty much die? Alister hangs himself and then mors has to fight off sworn brothers for the rest of his life as he looks after the child? yeah right...absolutely absurd endings and story sucked. What if I didn't want to be house sarywyck or a nights watch? I could care less for both these stories....

Another thing that got me was there wasn't much of a theme in this game. You were never anywhere other then 5 specific areas...
underground maze
kings landing
riverlands city
castle black

Thats it...really was a constant run around over and over and over again. Along with a short game to boot.

If you wanna give players choices to end up with different endings give it more of a kick...Get together with Mass Effect creators. If you want a real RPG with some real world involvement and something more get together with Oblivion/Skyrim creators.

Anyways, As I said I am completely disappointed with this. Lots of lag, bad story, horrible ending...just sucked.

Sorry, but it's not good.

Think of Dragon Age 2. That's all that came to mind when I started this up. Clunky repetitive animations, terriblye Game of Thrones references every few minutes, and just overall terribly gameplay. Wouldn't play it again. I give it a 3 because I feel like it could've been good.

Being a fan of both the books and the HBO hit tv show i was lets say more then excited to play this game when it came out. sadly i was meet with dissappointment. With all the ephasis in graphics and gameplay going into most hot titles this year "Game of thornes" kinda took a backwords turn in everything it had to offer. LONG and numerous cut scenes kill whatever salvagable storyline "Game of thrones" had to offer and kills it. As and RPG fan one of my fav. things is controling what my character will say to certain things during the game, however in this game i was more then once confused on which choice to chose as i did not fully understand what was going to come out of my characters mouth making me regret much of early gameplay. Crude controls and camera movement make playing the game a headache as well as having an appauling combat system. Even apon leveling up and unlocking special attacks loses its appeal when the attacks look very less then "special" during combat. Overall if your a fan of the show or books stick to watching or reading them rather then spending your money on this game.
