What's New in Version 1.6
Absolutely AMAZING & BEAUTIFUL Game! A MUST PLAY!
This is one of the best games available on the App Store (in my opinion). If you are a Game of Thrones fan, you MUST download this game! Even if you don't like Game of Thrones, if you're into immersive RPG games, you MUST try this game! The first episode is free, and after playing it I was IMMEDIATELY hooked; I then bought the remaining 5 episodes. It's definitely one of the best purchases I've ever made on the App Store. The game's storyline is unique, so you're basically getting to experience a brand new element of the Game of Thrones world, while interacting with REAL Game of Thrones characters who I believe are voiced by the REAL actors themselves! (If not, then they're the best vocal impersonators I've ever heard in my entire life). You don't just stick with one character in this game, you get to play at least 5 different characters throughout the series, which ensures it NEVER gets boring. Additionally, the cinematic beauty of the game is equal to its brilliance and exciting gameplay. I had only one issue while playing the game (it froze on me once and didn't work for about a day, but after either restarting the iPad or just giving it time - I don't recall - it started working again the next day or so and I haven't had any other problems since). I HIGHLY recommend you give this FANTASTIC & BEAUTIFUL game a try!
Decent first play through
The first time I played this game through, it was very exciting. However, as you play through additional times, you realize that your choices matter a little bit, but don't effect the real outcome of the game. The same dialogue and same inevitable deaths for each character.
The other reason I would rate this lower is because of the technical issues I have experienced. After my initial download, the actual game play would not load and the app had to be uninstalled and reinstalled. I eventually got the app working, however, this is literally the only app on my phone that has ever crashed, and sometimes it'll crash 3-4 times in a row before actually proceeding with whatever part you're at in the episodes. The support I have received recommends uninstalling and reinstalling again, which will cause me to lose hours of gameplay decisions. It seems like a crashing app (and we're talking sometimes crashing 10 times per episode) is a developer problem that requires attention.
I enjoy all the TellTale Games, and did enjoy the story in this Game of Thrones edition quite a bit. But as others have mentioned, it is disappointing how little your decisions matter for the end results of this game. Also, the finale of episode 6 leaves a lot unanswered and was rather rushed and not well thought out.
False Advertising at its Worst
This is the first review I've ever written, because I've never before felt strongly enough about an app or product to bother with the effort. This "game" though has managed to plunge past that line in the sand and force me to take a stand. Do NOT be fooled. Nothing you do or choose in this game will effect the outcome to any degree, beyond a name change in the next dialogue. Items you can acquire will be prominently displayed in your inventory, but never used again. You can bow your head and give in to every demand made of you, or you can resist and spit in the face of your oppressors, and all endings will be the same, often without even the grace to acknowledge that the two radically different paths were taken whatsoever. If I had the money, I'd bring A lawsuit to Telltale Games, but alas, I'll have to settle for trying to save one or two other consumers that might have otherwise been duped into handing over a single cent. The few people who try to defend this game all use the same, tired argument, and it's one that will only prove fulfilling to maybe 1 in 30 people. Save your money, tell your friends, and don't let your daughters date anyone whose toxic hands touched this atrocity of a game.
