Probably like most who would get this game, I am a HUGE GoT fan. I've read the books and I've watched every episode on HBO at least twice. That said, I didn't have high expectations for the game, but I was hoping for just a little nugget of goodness that could satisfy my craving for as much GoT as possible.
Alas, that was not to be. The combat is cumbersome and boring, and far too difficult. I'm not looking for an easy game, but at least make me struggle w/ my fighting choices, or reaction time, or something I can control. Not with the 3rd fight of the game being a dreaded task where I choose what moves my character will make and watch as my opponents' hit points barely move and mine diminish faster than my happiness after putting this game in!
Finding loot is equally boring. I basically have to just run around every square foot of a room to see if the little "there's loot here" light lights up, if so, I pick up a few measly coins. Maybe later in the game this gets better, but I doubt if I will find out.
I have to say, there is one great thing about the game. You can turn it on and listen to the theme music for as long as you want. Nothing like that cello playing in the background when working on a spreadsheet for my real job, which somehow is more fun than this game.

This was qutie possibly the worst game I have ever played. The only joy I recieved was sealing the envelope and placing it in my mailbox. If it were possible to give it a negative score I would have been happy to.

Nuff said. For 1sts it took about 15-20 mins of roleplay/dialogue to even see the combat which in my personal opinion was the WORST combat fighting of all time. Kind-of like pokemon you pick 3 abilities then your character takes his/her sweet time actually performing the moves/abilities. The dialogue and Npc speech was off time by too much. More than bearable. Save yourself the weeks wait for this game and don't even bother. Literally the 1st game I've ever immediately put back in my mailbox.
