Why are licensed games universally horrible? Why can't all licensed games raise to the standard of the N64's GoldenEye, the Genesis' Aladdin, or the NES' DuckTales? Generally, it's because tie-in products like this are low-budget, rushed affairs that are looking to do little more than make a quick buck off of the hype surrounding a new IP. Is this the case with A Game of Thrones? Frankly, we don't know for sure, but it certainly has all the trappings of a game of such description.
