The story was amazing. The graphics were great. The gameplay was a serious tease. This had all the makings of an incredible game, with none of the follow-through. The scripted way that this story progressed and the limited number of actual choices made available to the player made playing the game a pointless frustration that occurred between cut scenes. Luckily, the cut scenes were generally worth it and the parts where you had to play were sparse and very brief. It was dark enough, it was twisted enough. It was annoyingly free of graphic nudity, but it had graphic violence to spare. I recommend it as a great animated feature for anyone that is a fan of the series.
I really wanted to like this game. Really.
I love the books and the show. Martin is a fantastic writer, and they've done an amazing job adapting the books for TV. But you can immediately tell that Martin didn't have much of a hand in this game. Aside from the mediocre graphics and boring gameplay, the dialogue is unnatural and the voice acting is just laughable. Martin is known for creating wonderful, witty lines for his characters and for his incredibly detailed descriptions of every scene in his books. This game is a huge disappointment and doesn't deserve to share the GOT title.
