Game of Thrones Review | Kotaku

Kotaku: I'll confess: I really wanted to start this review with a choice quote from George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire novels. "Winter is coming" is played, I just did a riff on "You Know Nothing, Jon Snow" the other week... maybe a less common one, like, "Jon Snow flexed his sword hand" or something.

But no. I'm not going to do that.

Martin's books, and the terrific HBO series they've inspired, deserve better than that. Unfortunately, they also deserve better than the Game of Thrones video game I'll be reviewing today.

The story is too old to be commented.

Asides from the game apparently having low budget and production value , i doubt the books or the tv serie itself lend itself to many potential good game adaptations .

If like some licensed product you do a spin off tale in the same universe , it's uninteresting , boring and a pale imitation .
But if you follow closely the plot and many characters , you end up with some weird gaming mash up .

Strategie and Tactical games are probably the only one that would also emcompass a major and important feature of the franchise : politics and its many treacherous ways .

Think something like FFT/Tactics Ogre or Front mission or even Civilisation and Total Wars done in a much bigger scale and with multiple branching stories .

Something most likely impossible without the brains behind those franchise or anything equivalent , so highly unlikely
