Critic Reviews for Game of Thrones - Season One

​Game of Thrones gets the feel of Martin's universe right, but it relies too heavily on familiar themes to form a memorable identity of its own.

Telltale's well-worn adventure formula finds a perfect fit in the politicking of Westeros.

Though hard to grasp for the uninitiated, Telltale's Game of Thrones is a truly meaty addition to the established tale, creating a gut-twisting fantasy drama that will leave you feeling absolutely awful, just like Game of Thrones should.

The Game of Thrones adventure game is really good at piling up bodies, but has trouble finding direction in between the bloodshed.

Though it's only just getting started, Game of Thrones: A Telltale Games Series is a video game fans won't want to miss.

Telltale's Game of Thrones is at its best when it focuses on its own characters and isn't making a point to include ones from the books and show. The first season is one that is full of hard choices and a lot of sacrifice and feels very much in line with what fans have come to expect from Game of Thrones, but just how much all of this will matter has been hidden away for a second season.

At this juncture, we know what to expect out of a Telltale experience: less-than-solid gameplay that is balanced out by an amazing story. That being said, Game of Thrones, while a solid Telltale experience, has limited appeal. The Venn diagram of interest is flatly composed of people who love Game of Thrones with people who like/tolerate Telltale's experiences. If you love Game of Thrones and enjoy Telltale's previous offerings, you shouldn't hesitate to pick up the game. If you're someone who loves Westeros but dislikes Telltale's style, you might want to give the game a shot, if only to get another hit of Thrones before you find out what really happened to Jon Snow. On the other hand, if you don't know a Crow from a raven, you should probably give it a pass.

It just also means that the very premise of a game like this set in the Game of Thrones universe is maybe not as enticing as you might think.
