"If there's one thing I've learned from reading George R. R. Martin's fantasy epic or watching the HBO adaptation of the story it's that I shouldn't be surprised when bad things happen to good people. And yet, I still am. Every time. That I am able to feel real heartbreak playing Telltale's latest episodic adventure game is a testament to the skill of the writers and designers at the studio. They took the dense subject material of Martin's world, threw it in a blender, and spat out a tale just as grim and harrowing. It's an extremely entertaining homage, for sure, but it certainly isn't fresh or exciting either."
