Product Description

Platform: PLAYSTATION 3

Product Description

The story of A Game of Thrones takes place during the first book of the saga, at the time when Jon Arryn, the Hand of King Robert Baratheon, is found dead at King's Landing.

The game allows players to follow two epic quests: Mors and Alester's. Their totally original story was canonized by George R.R. Martin himself and perfectly integrates the original story the fans are so familiar with in the series.

All throughout the game, the numerous references to books, characters and famous locations form an impressive Westeros encyclopedia, which players can consult at any time during their adventures.

Mimicking the books, the two heroes' stories are told alternatively, chapter by chapter, each character sharing the role of main character… up until their paths cross during a common quest.

Welcome to a totally innovative narrative style for an RPG.

2.0 out of 5 stars Awful gameplay with an interesting story 22 Jun 2012
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3|Verified Purchase
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
I have never played a completely linear RPG before, and I don't think I'll ever play one again if I can avoid it.

There's not a lot of game in Game of Thrones: the game. RPGs, despite having a scripted storyline as a frame for the overall experience, usually allow the player to make decisions which have consequences, to roam freely in the game world and to develop and play the role in his or her individual fashion. None of these options is available in this game. In Game of Thrones you may travel only where the story needs you to travel and fight whomever the story demands you fight. There is no real role playing involved. This is just an interactive story, one step removed from an audiobook experience, in my opinion.

The one area in which, above all others, you would expect a bit of freedom is combat... but even that is a broken system, seemingly purposely designed to suck any enjoyment and self-expression out of the game and its player. I want to press a button and see my guy swing his sword; anticipate an incoming blow and hit a button in time to block or avoid an incoming attack. Sadly the combat works like this: enemies attack you; you slow down time to bring up a wheel displaying all your character's abilities; you choose 3 abilities to add to a queue; you wait and watch your character perform the attacks/buffs/etc. which you told him to perform... except you don't even get to watch him do that because you have to be choosing the next set of commands while all that's going on. Essentially you spend your battles doing the admin, ordering tasks for somebody else to carry out. It never feels as though you are doing anything for yourself.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Martin-style plot 19 July 2012
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3|Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Unlike the other reviewers so far, I found this game to be great fun. Admittedly, if you are expecting a Skyrim or Mass Effect set in Westeros, you will probably be disappointed, as it does not have anywhere near that scope.

However, the storyline is great, and very much in keeping with the Song of Ice and Fire ethos. As in the book, there are a few straightforward villains who are there to be hated outright, and everyone else as flawed characters doing what they think is right and ending up fighting with each other! I won't say any more than that, there are a fair few surprises in the plot which I think fans of the books/ TV series will appreciate.

All in all, I think it was a good idea to create a new story with new characters so the fans of the book don't know what is going to happen. However the plot develops alongside the happenings of the book in a very convincing way.

The gameplay reminded me of Dragon Age, where you can "pause" the game and assign actions to your character(s) in combat. It is slightly different in that the game is not completely paused but slowed down, which means you can't sit around for ever trying to figure out what you are going to do.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not as bad as some might have you believe 2 Dec 2012
By Pilgrim
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3|Verified Purchase
I felt I had to put in my two penn'rth to try and get the unjustly poor ratings up for this game.
Some have criticised it for its poor graphics. However, in my opinion the graphics aren't that bad. In fact, they are quite atmospheric if a little rough around the edges, and atmosphere is what this game is all about.
The voice acting of the main characters is first rate and most of the rest of the cast acquit themselves well enough too with one or two minor exceptions.
The fighting DOES take a little getting used to but I soon got the hang of it and it soon became second nature to me.
The menus can be a little clunky but again, it's no deal breaker.
But it's the story that is the real star of this show. More twists and turns than you could wish for and a very mature and gritty one it is too that fits well into the Ice and Fire universe. There are some hard decisions to be made in Mors and Alester's journey and towards the end it gets more brutal than gritty. Not for the squeamish.
And there's even a cameo from George R.R. Martin himself.
In summary, I agree it could have been so much better in lots of ways, but the atmosphere and that story are truly worth experiencing.

3.0 out of 5 stars Is it or not for you 20 Mar 2013
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3|Verified Purchase
Well as I loved the series decided it to buy the game while waiting for the next season to be back on line. I must say I was not too impressed with this , I am used to simply battle system and this one takes a lot to get your head around doing the fight.

Game play and Graphics are really great but if you have much time on your hands to get around the battle system , then this is the game for you.

2.0 out of 5 stars The Game of Thrones Game 10 Jun 2012
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
Oh dear. This is a prime example of how not to make a roleplaying game. To most people a good roleplaying game involves freedom and choice, it allows you to design a character and play them the way you want to play them in order to make your own story. The Game of Thrones fails in every way to do this, forcing you instead to play out a predetermined plot which only allows you to sample a very small part of the world of Westeros.

As I understand it the games plot was written by George R R Martin who wrote the original Game of Thrones novels. The game therefore is very true to the original story and you get to interact with events and characters from the first novel. However, it does mean that the game designers have felt restricted to following Mr Martin's plot at the expense of any input on your part. While you are told that your characters actions and events will affect the plot most of the major decisions are taken for you and at best you get a few dialogue choices which seem to have very minor consequences.

The game is strongly influenced by the television series of Game of Thrones, using both its imagery and its music to provoke a very familiar feel to the environment. Actors from the series have been used for some of the voice acting and their facial features have been used for the main characters in the story. However, there are the occasional bit part characters who are voiced by much less talented voice actors who read their lines in a very wooden and artificial sounding manner.

The graphics in the game are poor to average at best. At no point do you find yourself awed by the sights and sounds of Westeros. One town looks pretty much the same as another.
