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.

Okay, so I pre - ordered this game from GameStop and I was really excited to play it because I am so into the HBO series (yet to read the books). I started the game and let the intro go on, though way too long, and as soon as the fighting tutorial started about 30 minutes later, I was utterly disgusted. The fighting style is horrible, the graphics glitch, the mouths are in no way sync'd with the voices, and they talk way too much. I tried to get into it and let it play for some time, but after the 10th or so fight I just turned off the console and packed the game away. IT IS GARBAGE. And the worst part is, GameStop wouldn't let me return it for a refund, or even an exchange! I have never wrote a review for a game, like the guy above me said, but I needed to tell people about this before they make the same mistake I did. Game of Thrones fan or not, you will not be pleased.
Honestly, I was expecting so much more out of this game. I've never watched GoT but my brother talks about it all the time and absolutely loves the series, we got into the game and of course (him being in his 30s, has gotten to the point of poor eyesight) and he can't read, thus I have been having to sit in the room with him reading it. When we got to the fighting scenes, he sat there once again having me figure it out for him because the text is so small to read that he couldn't figure out what it said. Both of us agree that the fighting play is very poor, as are the graphics. These graphics should have been on par with Skyrim, as should have the combat system. Its completely and utterly under-rated compared to how we expected it to be. We were hoping for it to be a game that blew even Skyrim off the wall with its game of the year rating, and instead this game is definitely going to go down the drain and history most likely in my P.O.V. I've played a lot of bad games, and this one by far even only playing about 30 minutes into it, tops all of those in horridness.
