But the gameplay is kinda, just not so good. Different characters than the ones they follow from the show (I have not read the books sorry) is what makes this game unique. You get to live in the time era. The only thing I would have changed is combat, Ability to change armor of followers (which I figured out why but, just give back the gear??) Maybe only focus on one character or both but a full story on one like character select.

Full disclosure: I watched and hated season 1 of the series and have never read the books but I do like RPGs so I thought I would give this game a chance.
Game of Thrones drags badly and I was bored stiff. I honestly gave it as much time as I possibly could (just about the beginning of Chapter 6) before I finally threw in the towel. The fight mechanism was grotesquely clunky and extremely frustrating. The graphics and character models look as though they are 15 years old and just plain do not measure up to other games in the genre. The dialogue was less than mediocre and there were actually times where it sounded as though they changed the voice actor right in the middle of the conversation. I do not understand why the GameFly reviewer and some others gave this game such high marks. As poor as this game is, I have to question their reasons. Nevertheless, this game is not worth the time or effort.
This game just screams that the developers rushed creating it and didn't put extra effort into polishing it the months before release. Having said that, I believe the game is actually pretty fun, popping textures and poor resolution aside. The story delivers as well even with some glaring potholes that could not coexist within the realm of Westeros known in the series. If you are looking for a game that plays like a bad version of Dragon Age: Origins, this game should suit your desires
