The Game of game of thrones,
This review is from: Game of Thrones (PS3) (Video Game)
This is a review of the ps3 version with the 1.02 patch.
First of this game is the first big game from a small developer it uses the unreal engine which is tryed and tested and quite reliable.
After a long install which took around 15 mins i was surprised at the presentation of the menu's which were very well done and the icing on the cake was the theme from the series playing this was game of thrones.
From that you get took to the character creation screen which is quite robust in terms of building a unique character for you which i like.
After that you get into the game, the graphics are not too bad they are not AAA but i would say its a pretty game just a bit rough around the ages.
I did like that i felt you were in the world of game of thrones and the night watch's wall was recreated very well also characters have a nice amount of detail to them and while the vocie acting is probaly not gonna win any oscars the writing by george r.r. martin is very good and keeping with the whole theme of game of thrones i instantly found myself getting sucked into the story (not hard if your a game of thrones fan)
The gameplay is a realtime/turn based rpg power/skill based affair its easy to use hard to master. After getting the hang of the controls i did find myself using strategy in my play rather than just bashing buttons so i don't think it will get boring soon as there is plenty of depth to this.
Lots of reviews i have read mentioned bugs but i have to say i have not noticed anything major since using the new patch as i said it uses the unreal engine which is quite robust other than a few graphical quirks it seems to run fine.
I give this game a 5 star for fans of the show the story is very good and why not the man himself wrote it though if you are not a fan of the show this would be a 3 star game imo.
