Winter is most definitely coming
You can just imagine the conversation at Telltale Games when they learned they'd got the license to do something based on Game of Thrones. 'So, what sort of game should we do? Platformer?' 'Nah, how about one of those interactive adventures? We haven't done one of those for ages!' However, while this is extremely similar to the company's other titles like Walking Dead or Wolf Among Us in terms of gameplay, there's one major factor which prevents it from being as good as previous games. It's still not bad, especially if you're a fan of the show, but the complete lack of meaningful decision making really hurts this one. The story is an all-new concoction revolving around House Forrester as they get caught up in the bloody war which is tearing apart the land. As you play through the story, you'll visit locations and meet characters made famous by the show, while over the course of the six episodes, you'll play the roles of several different characters and, in theory at least, make decisions which have far-reaching effects. However, here's where the game falls down. The choices you make are seemingly fairly pointless as they have no real consequence to the overall story, making the whole thing feel a trifle unnecessary. The story remains fairly engaging but the need to shoehorn everything into already established history does bring things down a bit. The game features Telltale's usual high production values, but the interface is a trifle clunky and overall, this is easily skipped, except by the most devout of GoT's followers.
