"In perfect “Game of Thrones” fashion, the first episode of Telltale Games’ new series opens with death.
That is, a lot of death. Stop me if you’ve heard this before: a well-loved lord is slain, his family in thrown into turmoil, danger lurks at every turn, and it’s impossible to know who to trust.
As far as replicating a tone, Telltale’s latest series pretty much nails it.
Game of Thrones: A Telltale Games Series’ first episode, “Iron From Ice,” is another incredibly strong start for the studio that’s become known for creating “parallel stories” within established fictional universes. Telltale does a phenomenal job of turning interactive what makes “Game of Thrones” so compelling on TV, exploring war, diplomacy and politics while constantly forcing players to wonder if their last choice was the right one."
