A Game of Thrones - Genesis
40 bucks down the drain
The potential for this to be an amazing game was in place. A popular book/TV series mixed with an R T S style; yet this game is horrible. I am not a huge computer gamer but I do like R T S games ( Empire and Rome Total war). I am also a huge fan of Game of Thrones also so when i heard this "game" was coming out i was very excited. Yet they put some garbage together and slapped a G o T tag on it so people like me buy it. The game play is horrible, the use of envoys and spy's and all these other non army units is the game. It works well in books but not a GAME which is meant for fun. I mean you have to pay to buy peasants. Every unit cost more than the last of the same class. You can have guards and a spy in the same location but an assassin can still sneak in and kill your envoy. Do not buy this garbage. Stick with a basic R T S game where you build armies and conquer your enemies while still having the use of treaties.
Interesting political approach, nothing more
This game could've been so much more.
The political approach is the only aspect I came to enjoy from this game.
Assassins, spies, noble ladies, envoys and rogues.. was something new and really interesting, although it does require some micro-management.
Graphics are mediocre at best, the sound is "ok".
Campaign is pretty dull... and it leaves a lot to be desired.
I think its worth playing and completing the campaign just once.
Most of the missions were a big disappointment specially the ones with the Targaryan house.
Battles are pretty boring, there is no way to field a large army in less than 20 to 30min of gameplay and the time it takes for a unit to move from 1 point to the other is terribly slow.
In short.. personal opinion.. this game is worth 19 bucks, no more than that.
Wait for the price to go down then check it out.
This game is great. Great strategy gameplay and amazing for any game of thones fan
