Worth a buy?

.. Or a rent? Or neither?

I'm a massive game of thrones fan, so I'll probably get this anyway. But.. is it any good?

From what I've heard and read... The game is utter crap and has had bad ratings left, right and centre.

Not saying you'll enjoy it, it's just what I've come across. I'd look up some reviews. Not sure if x360a has done one, but check out others like IGN etc

When did 7/10 become a bad review score?, which is what both Gamespot and OXM gave it.

Ign gave it 4/10 but the review was not great they did the same with Ninja Gaiden 3 which was still enjoyable.

Like I said. Its what I've read and seen in a couple of places, even here on the forums.

Again, I've never watched the series or played the game, so I'm going off peoples reactions. If others are giving it 7/10 etc, then it looks like it's getting mixed feelings and reviews.

Take the risk or don't, that's the only choice you have when it comes to that.

I agree with the other posts

I personally really enjoy the game. I have only finished level one however. It takes a little bit of time to get used to the battle system (i'm not sure why they chose such an arcane way). But as the game progresses I have found it to not be all that bad. Once you unlock more actions, it seems a little better.

I have never read the books, but I do watch the series. The story seems like it will be very enjoyable. I don't think the graphics are terrible, but they are dated. I have not experienced any bugs (through Chapter 1), and I suggest you save a lot (you can anytime not in battle).

Overall, I think I will really enjoy this game. When/If you accept that this game is different from real-time fighting (like Witcher 2) and accept it flaws, it seems like it will be very fun. Hope this helps.

I am a huge fan of the books, and love the show. So, that is why I chose to partake in this game.
I would say it is worth a rent (that is the course I chose).
Not a lot of re-playability (none, in my case).
My complaints (I started a bitching thread LINK), is the over the shoulder view, which was maddening (To me), and the mouth animations were atrocious.

But, as I stated in the beginning of this post, it was worth it to me as a huge fan, and there is a special appearance by George R. R. Martin in the game (Another post..*Slight Spoilers* LINK)

Batman AA and AC.

I picked this up and played a bit of it. Not too bad, not amazing yet either though. The atmosphere is good though for those, like me, who loved the books. Feels a bit like the Discworld games in that it would be a crap game if you didn't love the world and the style it was set in.

They're all going to suck if you keep comparing them to Goldeneye. That's a bad habit to have.


I'm about to pop the game in for the first time. I'm a huge fan of both the show and the books (currently in book 4). I think it's going to be cool regardless of graphics, dialog, and combat, just to run around the seven kingdoms.
