Ratings and Reviews
I bought this game less than a week ago and have already completed it. Sadly that's not because I couldn't put it down but because it was ridiculously short with no challenges. I have been a long time fan of Telltale Games since I played the Monkey Island series as a child and was ecstatic to find that they had games for iPad. The first I bought was the Back to the Future game which lived up to the high standards set by Monkey Island. Both games had plenty of choice and challenge which could keep me entertained for some time. Unfortunately GoT did not live up to this standard and I can only describe it as a slightly interactive episode of GoT. The game included no challenging puzzles characteristic of Telltale and the 'choices' given merely led to the same outcome (which I discovered when I tried playing again, making the opposite decisions). I would not recommend this game to anyone, it is absolutely not worth the money.
Great game — runs well
Firstly, I've read some reviews that claim the game doesn't run well and lags on their device – this is simply because the game is not fit for every iOS device. It's a large game, thus you're going to need a decent device to run it smoothly. This game runs perfectly on my iPhone 6s. I've had no issues.
Secondly, the game isn't going to be like Telltale Game's "The Walking Dead" series or their other series'. This is Game of Thrones, thus the story is more important than adding in a bunch of interactions. There is enough choices and enough actions to perform alongside the compelling storyline.
Thirdly, this game is definitely a must for any real Game of Thrones fan. The story is compelling and fits with the GoT storyline (starting from the infamous Red Wedding). It has the same voice actors which is relieving and awesome and the playable characters are unique and special in their own ways. It's great.
Finally, a TL;DR... This game is great. Any GoT fan will love it. The storyline is what makes it great. If you're going to be bored of the storyline, don't purchase more episodes. The first episode is free, so test the waters before you purchase.
Interesting but low on interaction and expensive episodes.
It's certainly an interesting spin-off into the world of House Forrester for GoT fans. The inclusion of some of the TV series actors as voiceovers was nice too.
The fact that it is a memory space hog, the 5 remaining episodes costing a whopping extra £15 (£20 more if bought separately), and that the interactivity seems to barely affect the gameplay are the reasons I won't be continuing my journey with this app.
Some smaller tweaks might be to skip past dialogue - especially noticeable if you've replayed a scene; to be able to save game at any point or to autosave a more frequent intervals; some feedback as to how the user is making any difference in their choices (50 times saying character x 'will remember that' doesn't count I'm afraid.); perhaps some option to adjust the response time ( I had barely time to read the options before the time was out to choose which leaves you feeling rushed).
Overall it is a well constructed narrative app but the expense and minimal feedback you are affecting the gameworld are sufficient to play once and delete.
