Game of Thrones: Episode Two - The Lost Lords Review Summary

FairCritic Consensus

Game of Thrones: Episode Two - The Lost Lords simply put just continues the story of the first episode. With a slow burn plot , an excess of dialogue and some distracting cameos, this game should be played if you are already into this Telltale series as a whole.

Critic Reviews for Game of Thrones: Episode Two - The Lost Lords

The Lost Lords neglects to advance the Forresters' story in meaningful ways as it introduces new characters.

Another uninspiring episode of nothing but filler and hopes for the future, although that's as much a criticism of episodic content as it is the game itself.

Telltale expertly toys with players' emotions. If you walk away from this episode with anything other than a sense of dread for House Forrester, you're playing it wrong

With the stage setting done, the second episode of Game of Thrones feels like something plucked straight from the source material--gut wrenching, tense, and bloody.

It's an enjoyable evening of gaming with a few hard decisions, but it demonstrates the hands tightening around the neck of House Forrester.

Episode 2 is effective in picking up where Episode 1 leaves off, but is content to mostly move the pieces around the board in an effort to setup the rest of the story. Though not nearly as shocking as the first episode, it nevertheless manages to raise the stakes at both Ironrath and King's Landing, setting the stage for a very interesting Episode 3. If the teaser is anything to go by, the next installment will prominently feature a wedding, and we all know how those go in Game of Thrones...

Overall, The Lost Lords is a fine episode for Game of Thrones: A Telltale Game Series, but it does not stand out. It is not exactly filler, but it does feel like it exists almost entirely as exposition, putting the pieces into place for all of the really exciting stuff to happen in a future episode. It does begin to demonstrate the far-reaching consequences of each character's choices, but it lacks the truly memorable scenes found in the first episode. If Iron From Ice felt like a punch to the gut, The Lost Lords is the throbbing pain afterward.

But as a game, we have yet to see whether the series will be forced to coil around a strict plotline where your decisions matters little. Lost Lords carries the torch from Iron from Ice—no more, no less.
