I must start off by saying that more time should be put into any game that is based off an HBO orginal series. Honestly I didn't play the game for longer than an hour. Once I realized that you have to chose your action from a list and then wait for a meter to charge before the action could be performed I ejected the disc and put it right back in the mail. I"m sorry but once I get a game from gamefly that actually raises an eyebrow I'll write a much more in depth and read-worthy review. But as for this game two thumbs down with my tounge out

I had read mixed reviews on this game and had thought it couldn't be as bad as everyone says and I was right...this was worse. Interesting storyline couldn't save this sinking ship. The opening narration by the unic gave me high hopes but once you becan to move around and control your character the flaws came pouring out. The first tutorial combat sequence was horrific, you have three attack spots and you fill them with base attacks and special abilities unfortunately once you issue an order it takes several seconds to follow through, being an avid gamers I don't like waiting for my attack to work. Could have been a promising game but we will never know. If your looking for a good rpg try dragons dogma I guarantee you won't be disappointed. GOT couldbe your cup of tea but as a fps addict I need the instant gratification of owning some random creature with a flurry of dagger strike. All in all 2/10 though it could be my wife kept asking where John snow was for the first half hour.
I went into the game thinking that i could power through the horrible parts to get to the great story. Sadly I didnt even get past the first 2 hours or so because it is sooooo boring. Graphics are pre-ps2, voice acting is bad, combat is slow, and everything about this game makes me ashamed to say i love video games. Please stay away from this atrocity that they call a video game.
