Not the Best in the Telltale Library, but Still Worthy of a Playthrough
The Telltale series of Game of Thrones primarily deals with house Forrester and their squire Gared Tuttle. The main goal as the episodes unfold is to save their house from the Bolton's. The story does branch out to include most of the territories and characters from the critically acclaimed show. What enhances the experience even more is that the actual actors from the show provide their own voices.
The mechanics work like any other Telltale game with quick time events and dialogue choices. Only this time around the choices feel less dire compared to well received player choice games like the Walking Dead. I feel you can really mess up the conversations with little consequence. That makes the game boring when players are not properly punished for their actions.
The graphics are good, but that depends if you like looking at a cell shaded picture which I for one do. The picture looks like you are playing inside a comic book.
If you are a fan of the show then this is something to at least try. The story isn't all that compelling but there are still enjoyable moments that fans would appreciate.
There should be a spoiler warning on the game though, and I don't believe there is one. If you haven't seen the show but plan to, I suggest to watch the first four seasons before giving this game a try. Some of the important events are included in the game.
