"When you play the game of thrones, you win or you die. While you likely know which option you prefer, getting there is tricky, which the bloody Games of Thrones television show makes pretty clear. Seeing it all go down is stressful enough - but when it's suddenly on you to make the decisions that could destroy everything you hold dear? That's a whole new kind of anxiety for the Song of Ice and Fire saga, and that's what you get with Telltale's Game of Thrones Episode 1: Iron from Ice. Its narrative is occasionally jumpy, and you'll miss things here if you neglected to watch the show. But still, it's an intriguing debut that puts you in the hot seat, introducing the Game of Thrones audience to a new kind of unease."
