VGW: George R.R. Martin broke many of the conventions of fantasy literature with his A Song of Fire and Ice novels. A Game of Thrones – Genesis attempts to break many of the conventions of the RTS genre and provide something new but, if intrigues and back-stabbing can translate to gaming, I don’t think Genesis pulled it off. Fans of the source material may find themselves disappointed while fans of the genre will find themselves in a similar boat. The gameplay mechanics are unique and interesting but poorly supported by the presentation, graphics and story.
