For people who are looking at this and dont know what game of thrones is, it is a critically acclaimed book series and an epic hbo show set in a mideval fantasyesq era, this looks pretty good, i can't wait and i suggest that everyone watches the show and reads the books it's pretty good, i havent read the books myself but i have watched season one of the show and i can say this it is not for kids, definetly adult oriented and super epic, with that said i can't wait to see how this ties in with the series
Rated 9 out of 10 by Losifer Game of Thrones is a role playing story game of it
The main focus for one on this game should be this, it's not a graphics, high action game, but a story that you play out, that completely adds to both the series and the books. If your looking for a fast action, hack and slash, this is not it. On its own it is still a very good game, with plenty of codexs to fill you in on what is going on in both as well. The graphics are decent, the game play is fun, but it doesn't take long to understand. It is actually sort of a live action turn based system, which I loved. It makes you plan you next few moves out. If your on the easy mode, you dont really need to focus too much and plan. Haven't beaten the game yet, but I felt people are complaining about it not even coming close to comparing to Skyrim and Dragon Age, but nowhere does it claim to be anything similar to these games. Game of Thrones is a role playing story game of its own, and its fun.
Rated 8 out of 10 by gamer777777777 A normal game
This game has early xbox graphics, LOTS of talking, and a difficult fightng system to master. But really it's not a bad game, we're just really used to top notch games like skyrim and mass effect but not all games are like that. Now that the top notch producers released all of their stuff lower budget games may start poping up here and there so if a big developer doesn't make the game cut it some slack. Plus this game wasn't all that bad. Once you master the combat system it becomes very effective, and the story is great especialy if your a fan of Game of Thrones. Also there is alot of talking in the book so there obviously would have to be in the game to make sense and be acurate. Give this game a shot (buy it used), and if you don't like it just return it, you won't loose anything, but you might gain something.
Rated 7 out of 10 by NewbornRiddler For the right crowd...
Yes the graphics and animation arnt that great, yes there is alot of talking, but lets start with the basics. First off your playing "Game of Thrones" and if you know the series its not based around combat, but more of actually playing the game of thrones. The combat is like Dragon Age Origins, with the same basic customization. The sound and music is actually good, granted the voice actors dont really do the characters much justice. The graphics arnt what should drive a gamer to stop playing a game. With all honesty I think they did a good job creating an atmosphere especially in the North along the Wall. You feel the dread and gloomyness that every ranger of the Nights Watch feels as they patrol the forests. The game is slow in the beginning, but helps you understand the different personalities of Mors and Alester. You slowly begin to see how thier two stories intertwine with each other and how they actually make sense to the TV series and books. The story is what keeps you going to the end. This is by far not a game for everyone, especially people looking for a unique combat system. Id recommend this game to a small crowd of people who are fans of the books and/or tv series as you do feel as your being emerged into the world from the stories.
Rated 2 out of 10 by Vincy Do Not Buy
As a previous person posted, Skyrim may have set the bar to high for future RPG games. That siad, this game lacks in all categories. The most important to me is the gameplay itself. The fighting is pretty bad and there is way more dialogue than actual fighting/exploring. It was a real let down. Overall character control is very limited and even though it took 7 years for them to make it(I think), It didn't seem like a lot of effort/detail was put into this game. Dont buy! If you really want it, I suggest waiting a month or so and Im sure you'll be able to get it for half the price or less cuz people will be returning this game the day after they buy it.

This looks like it will be a great game; good graphics, cool story, and it stays close to the actual story. I just started the series and it is great very intense and indepth. Hopefully the game will be the same way and also I hope it will be super long. A big story needs a big game afterall. My only worry is that i dont know atlas or cyanide studios other games if they have any and i'm not sure if i want to invest 60 dollars into something unstable so hopefully gameinformer with do a preview and they'll release a combat video. Even if they don't I'm a huge fan so I'll pre order anyway (Also the 64 page art book looks really cool!)
Rated 2 out of 10 by pyro5335 Garbage!!!
A huge dissapointment. I read the books and loved them then watched the show and loved that. I saw there was a game coming out and I couldn't wait. Rushed out, preordered it, sat down to play, and wanted to start crying. The graphics are terrible and the gameplay is a joke. I hate games where you hit a button and wait for the character to play out the series of commands. That style is better for like a command and conquer not a 3rd person RPG. Stay away and don't buy this game. The only upside to it is that the actual storyline and plot are pretty good. Overall definitely not worth the money... Maybe $5

This game was so bad I wanted to give myself a red smile. It really was terrible. If you can read this, do not buy the game! Yuck. So bad.

I am a fan of the Tv series, in which this game was being created before, and apparently has been in the making for about 7 years. Mad props for not rushing out for some quick cash. I will be honest though, I'm not impressed with the graphics, but for me personally, graphics don't make the game. I have watched the youtube videos for the game developers and George R. R. Martin, and apparently it's supposed to be a great new title. From what i've seen of the battle system, you might expect a reuse of the battle system from Knights of the Old Republic, or Dragon Age: Origins. I loved both these games, and also have some control of the story like in Fallout 3. The thing I'm wondering is if the choices you make have a good/bad side, like with Dragon Age. The other thing too is it seems you might need some patience with this game, it seems that you have a good chance of failing with each fight. The other thing i noticed was that when entering a fight, it uses a short cut to where each pulls out there weapons, now for me i dont expect each person to pull their weapon in unison, would be nice to have a sneak bonus lol Overall though this game can be a great sucess or a huge flop. Atlas seems to be a hit and miss type of company. Loved Demon Souls and Dark Souls, but they deffinitley have quite of list of failed games. Games that even the story nor gameplay could save it. So I might just wait for a good review of someone who gets a post beta copy or wait for an offical review.
Rated 8 out of 10 by TKTheBoss Really good Third party developer game
So if you are a fan of the television series, you will like this game. It is a true RPG, so if ur looking for fast-paced skyrim action this game isnt for you. It takes a while to get used too, and the voices and overall graphics are amazing, but it does well for a game that was hardly, if even at all, advertised.
I loved both the books and the tv series so i thoroughly enjoy the story and the amount of choices you can make. Overall, a decent game for RPG lovers and series fans alike.
