Colm Ahern: "Telltale understand George R.R. Martin’s work. They understand what HBO have done with said work. Currently, they’re crafting their own story within the confines of A Song of Fire and Ice’s lore and doing so very well. While the first episode’s highs were ever so slightly higher and visual issues remain a real sticking point, the foundation for a narrative that can stand on its own against the books and the TV show is here."
