Grab The Games: Game of Thrones (Iron from Ice Premiere Episode)

Game of Thrones is the new game series added to the Telltale Game family. But why we should get it Dionysis? Will it be like all the Telltales games? Is it truly worth getting? No worries guys, I am here to answer all your questions and let me tell you one thing, in my opinion so far this game is one of the best games from Telltale Games. They have really achieved something great with this game!

But what is GOT? Game of Thrones: Season one is a six part episodic game series set in the world of HBO's groundbreaking TV show. This new story tales of House Forrester, a noble family from the north of Westeros, loyal to the Starks of Winterfell. Caught up in the events surrounding the War of the Five Kings, they are thrown into a maelstrom of bloody warfare, revenge, intrigue, and horror as they fight to survive while the seven kingdoms tear themselves apart.

You will take on the role of different members of the Forrester household, and determine their fate through the choices you make; your actions and decisions will change the story around you.

Let's start now talking about the things I love in this game and let me tell you that there is A LOT of them. Later we can talk about the negative aspects of the game! To begin, the graphics of the game are simply AAA just like all the games you have played by Telltale. They are colorful and vivid, something I always loved in all their games. It really feels like you are inside Westeros. The graphics of the game really add something unique to the game. Something that I also loved in this game is the fact that it is not only make decisions and press buttons all the time. Now the story is not linear! You will not control 1 character that tell his story but now you will be able to control a lot of different characters from the Forrester family. And if that wasn't good enough to impress you, the choices you make can affect the other members of the family and the other people around you so this is

something really good at least in my opinion since your story can affect everyone else and have either good or bad influence around you. Another thing I loved is the fact that all our favorite characters from the TV show are there and they really fit into the story, it is not something they do only to impress the fans, but it is like the story of House Forester is part of the TV show and everything is connected in the end.

As far as the negative aspects are concerned, even that the graphics are AAA there are some small glitches even on the low setting. There are some bugs in the dialogues, like when people repeat words they say over and over. Another negative aspect is that sometimes the choices are not enough and the plot really leads you to a certain direction. You know, I would like to be more free in this game for example: if I choose to stay with my family I would like something else to happen there and not be forced to go and leave or avoiding certain deaths with the right choices would be nice to see.

 Finally, I totally recommend this game to everyone who loves gaming not just fans of Telltale games or Game of Thrones. This game will really impress and satisfy the fans of the Game of Thrones TV series. They will enjoy this game even better if they have seen the series from season 3 and later. Telltale has made a really good game despite the negative facts that I have mention, the gameplay is really amazing and can't wait for the next episode!

Verdict: 8.5
