Steve Peacock says: "I was going to start this review with a stylish intro that detailed the sort of things you’d end up doing in Game of Thrones: Genesis. There would have been characters, subterfuge, a call to war, the whole shebang. It would have been like reading a little slice of the books, except better because I am the awesomest of writers.
In the end, I decided against doing that, for no other reason than it would confuse you as to just what the game gives you. Despite the insistence that Genesis is a prequel to the books, you don’t get an expertly driven narrative. What you get instead is a GCSE history report on the world of A Song of Ice and Fire."
