Game of Thrones: Episode Four - Sons of Winter
Summary: Game of Thrones: Episode Four - Sons of Winter does help move this Telltale developed series' story along, however, it lacks the strong moments of prior episodes and simply sets up the stage for later entries
Top Critic Average
Depending on your choices, "Sons of Winter" finally offers a payback for every loss the Forresters suffered. Every plotline lets the player experience a satisfying victory against your worst enemies - with the exception of Gared Tuttle, who is mostly setting up the North Grove story for next month. But with two episodes remaining and a last-second twist you might still lose it all - but it wouldn't be the Game of Thrones if you couldn't.
Why must you make us wait, Telltale? Why?!
With just two episodes left, the stakes are higher than ever for House Forrester. There is plenty of political intrigue with the balancing of political and diplomatic might to consider. Still, if the books and show have taught us anything, there are precious few happy endings in this world, and I suspect the narrative of these next two episodes in this game will have its share of triumphs but also unexpected, darker surprises.
Episode four, Sons of Winter is arguably the most intense episode yet from Telltales Game of Thrones, from start to finish, you will be questioning every choice made and you will live to regret some in the heat of the moment. Business is certainly picking up in the game of politics.
"Sons of Winter" makes you feel almost as if the Forresters might find a way out of the darkness. Which has us incredibly worried about their future.
Fans of the books and TV series will love taking part in Martin's world.
Nicole Martinez and Brad Kane clearly care a lot about this world, and with episode four, they've introduced a lot of critical momentum to the season that makes it feel like the series has turned a corner.
Game of Thrones: Episode 4 - Sons of Winter delivers a dose of of the action we've all been waiting for.
Once again Telltale Games have succeeded at another attempt at bringing the player into the wondrous story of Game of Thrones with intrigue, turmoil, drama and action which is definitely an edge of your seat experience. The character development also furthers the story, especially Mira who has become this almost ruthless chess player in King's Landing to Rodrik who is desperate to find his army to save the Forrester's from annihilation. To complement the story and gameplay, the graphics mirror the TV series and the voice acting is perfect which even draws some of the original actors into the game. Game of Thrones: Episode 4 – Sons of Winter is another must have game for fans of this franchise or the HBO TV series. With only two more episodes, I really cannot wait to see how this game unfolds and how it furthers its links with the TV series.
Seeing the Forresters on the offensive delivers stressful excitement, and gives this lengthy story new life
