From the Manufacturer

THE AWARD-WINNING INTERNATIONAL BOOK & TV PHENOMENON…
NOW A HIGHLY ANTICIPATED GAME DEVELOPED IN COLLABORATION WITH GEORGE R. R. MARTIN!

With an original story written under the supervision of George R. R. Martin, Game of Thrones promises to deliver the ultimate interactive role-playing experience for fans. The game is filled with familiar locations straight from the pages of the beloved fantasy saga along with the likeness of some actors portrayed in the series.

In early 2012, with this epic new Game of Thrones game, fans will have a chance to not simply read or watch the story, but to take an active role in the riveting drama as it unfolds.

Overview
In this 30-plus hour role-playing game, players will enter the gritty and medieval fantasy world of Westeros. As one of two original characters with disparate motivations, both former soldiers of Robert’s Rebellion, players will forge alliances and wage battles as they play a pivotal role in the ongoing war for power of the Seven Kingdoms. Their journey will span numerous quests, during which they will interact with many characters and make key decisions that impact the realm.

Standing before the majesty and bitter isolation of the Wall or walking through the streets and alleys of King’s Landing, players will not simply pass by locations and characters integral to the series; they will explore and interact with them, meeting and learning about the people and history that defines them and their importance. Key decisions and major events will have meaningful impact on Westeros, allowing the player to witness how the game world evolves over time based on their actions or inactions.

Moreover, Game of Thrones introduces an innovative “active slowdown tactical combat engine” in which the player can slow but not completely stop the action, forcing them to plan and execute quickly. In this way, combat delivers the intensity, grit, and realism that the books and TV series are known for.

There are no complaints about the shippers, or the quality of the disc that I received. I was aware coming into this purchase the downsides to this game (glitchy, frame rate issues, character model short comings) but was pleasantly surprised about the ease of control and the dynamic dialogue choices and consequences. All around not terrible game. The story is definitely what pushes me further on into the game. Once again kudos to the seller/shipper. My package was actually early by a day!

I love reading the song of ice and fire books but with the shortcomings in gameplay I wasn't pulled in to this story enough to finish the game. From what I've seen it would've been better as a novel.

Game of Thrones has a great story and fans will likely enjoy it but nothing else is particularly good about this game.

A++ story and voice acting. C- combat engine Nov. 5 2012
By techmannn - Published on Amazon.com
Fun:   
This game didnt get much love and the major game reviews sites almost completely ignored it upon release. But I picked it up when the price dropped. There nothing *completely* broken about the game, so ignore the one star reviews. It is however a very flawed game with an astonishingly dark and riveting storyline that also happens to have uniformly great voice acting throughout.

The problem is the combat: there are a few difficulty spikes in the first 2 chapters that will scare a lot of gamers away from the game (hence the lame one star reviews). By chapter 4 the opposite happens. You can kill just about anything using your special abilities. So the combat is never really fun or challenging. That's definitely a C- for combat. There's really no excuse for the disappointing combat engine.

But if you are patient, and like a dark brutal storyline about kingship and murder, then the game is riveting in spite of the combat. There's lots of dialog here so just be warned you are basically watching a movie with lots of mostly pointless combat in between the story parts.

Some misc notes:

As an RPG you can make some minor changes in the plot but nothing that will completely change the plot. There's less than 5 sidequests in the whole game so it all about the main story. Weapons and armor are crazy expensive so you will literally have no money for anything except potions until 2/3rd's of the way thru the game (which would be a problem except the combat quickly becomes too easy anyway). Potions are the key combat -- they are inexpensive, easily found, and the do everything from poison to stun to heal. Combat is all about stunning or poisoning your enemies.

the bottomline is that if you can excuse the numerous faults, and get the game at a budget price, and like a dark storyline, it might be worth your time.

Better than the average tie-in game... June 28 2012
By TW Brown, Author, Editor, and Reviewer - Published on Amazon.com
I received this game as a gift from my daughter. The first thing we both commented on was the graqphics. They are wonderful. As a lover of the game Skyrim, that is where my comparisons will mostly be coming from. (I just got into XBox 360 about 6 months ago as an avid PC gamer that was reluctant to switch).

So far, this game doe some one upmanship on my beloved Skyrim. The dialog choices are very enjoyable as it allows you to choose a course for the dialog instead of a line by line choice. It makes the story feel more real. Also, the battle sequences are more interactive as you are allowed to alter tactics DURING the fighting.

The generation of characters are limited to the sole character(s) {there will be two that you control as the story develops} but you direct the TYPE of fighter and the type of "Red Priest" you will represent.

I have just begun, but stay tuned as I take you deeper into the game with me.

So, I have decided to play it two ways. One as a fair "Eddard Stark" type, and one as a real jerk. So far...a very different experience even early on!

I love a game that throws a curve at me. I was beginning to feel as if it had become too linear, however, the Red Priest story line is becoming my favorite part of the game. I will say that I do feel a bit guided by the game at times. I like games (like Skyrim) that don't force you to finish one set event.

Not half bad. Aug. 27 2012
By C. E. Leska - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase Fun:   
Everything you have heard about this game is true: The graphics aren't great, the battle engine is rough and the voice acting is only half-step above high school theater. Nevertheless, this was actually a good game.

It mixes an interesting (and appropriately brutal, given the source material) story and enough of your RPG stand-byes (weapon, armor, skills, etc) to make for a compelling game experience. I particularly enjoyed the mechanism of warging into the dog (Mors' special skill) as it made for a different gaming experience than the standard hack and slash.

It isn't a perfect game. There were some fights that were strangely difficult compared to previous fights and the first hour of backstory until things get going is downright brutal, but at the end the game had my interest enough that I wanted to play both endings out.

One last proviso: I am a huge A Song of Ice and Fire fan, and many have suggested this enhances the gaming experience. This is probably true and it was my fandom that pushed me past the game's initial awkwardness. However, I'm also just an RPG fan, and it was those elements that kept me playing.

Much better than its reviews Dec 31 2013
By Red - Published on Amazon.com
I bought this when it came out and played the first Chapter and put it aside. I decided to pick it back up over the holiday break and I am glad I did. I have read the books as they were released and I watch the HBO show. I am 50 and have been playing games for over 20 years years and mostly play RPG's. Once I got used to the mechanics (and also swallowed my pride and moved down to easy) I was able to get into the game. THE STORY IS INCREDIBLE AND FANS OF BOOK WILL LOVE IT. The problem might be book and the show fans that are not big gamers might find the game portion too hard and gamers who are not fans of the book and show might find the story portions boring and the game play to unreliable. (Notice I said unreliable not easy because there is an issue with the game play that it can be too easy on EASY but if you move up out of the blue you can get stuck were you die over and over.) There is more strategy involved in the game playing than normally found in RPG's that are targeted to people that might not be seasoned gamers. Even on easy I hit some places where I just kept dying until I figured out the proper strategy. I am afraid casual gamers might not hang in there until they figure it but they will be missing out on a GREAT story if they give up. (Online help is your friend.)

Remembering the pre Final Fantasy 7 days of RPG's I do not really get the complaints on graphics. If you liked Dragon Age Origins then graphics here will be fine. Also, since this is story driven the word is not open so people who do not like linear game play will be bored. I bought this for the fun of playing a character in the Game of Thrones and that is what I got to do. I was a "water-dancer" and red priest. I got to fight with a flaming sword. I was also a Black Brother of the Wall who could skin-change with his dog. I got a story with twists and turns that really surprised and moved me. After so many games with good game play and little story (Skyrium) or middle book stories that leave you hanging for the next installment (Witcher 2) it was great to get lost in a game and truly feel l like was playing an interactive book.

A very well made game! March 1 2013
By N. White - Published on Amazon.com

I am a hardcore RPG fan, and recently had started reading the Game of Thrones Books. Fans of the literary series who also love to play RPG will find this game engrossing. The battle system is unique in that it slows down while you fight and does not completely stop time. I was looking for a fast playing RPG game for my XBOX360, and this game definitely hit the right spots! So far I am happy with the weapons and armor that you have access to, I think perhaps if they were serious in making online content, a new pet (direwolf) would be nice, as well as different armor sets and some sort of random generated map system with enemies would be a pretty good start!

Overall worth the money, even used.
