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

The story is certainly starting to pick up the pace and the player is left wondering who among their current crop of characters will live to see the end. Much like the A Song of Ice and Fire series and A Game of Thrones, nothing is completely certain. A must for fans of either, Telltale are hitting their stride with this series.
I really like Game of Thrones on HBO, but I'm enamored with this game. Something about having ownership of character decisions in a fantasy story that lives up to the legend of George R.R. Martin is incredible. Once again, I find myself dying to see what happens next. April may bring the next season of the TV show, but if it brings the end of the game, it'll be bittersweet.
Game of Thrones Episode 2 may be Telltale's best showing yet, capturing the world of A Song of Ice and Fire near perfectly.
Telltale has created well written instalment of the Game of Thrones game that will please fans of the show, and stands on its own as a tense, dramatic tale of intrigue, politics and what families do to survive.
I'm still waiting for things to kick into high gear and truly take hold of me, but chapter two of House Forrester's tale leaves me in no doubt that such a moment is coming.
While Game of Thrones has yet to give a definitive vision of what the future holds for House Forrester (and knowing the series and George R.R. Martin's inclinations it probably isn't going to be good) Episode 2 of its game adaptation still shows that their tale is worth sticking through to the end, even if it may mean paying the iron price for it.
Episode 2 affirms my confidence in Telltale's ability to respect the source material.
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.
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...
