Editors Liked

  • Original characters
  • Good writing
  • Participating in iconic events from Game of Thrones is exhilarating
  • The Forresters are a deep, complex set of characters you will genuinely feel for
  • Playing multiple characters works well to advance the story in pieces, much like the show’s approach, but each feels distinct despite one player making all their decisions
  • Twists and turns (and death) galore, as befits a “Game of Thrones” adaptation

Editors Didn't Like

  • Glitchy animations
  • With a big focus on stage-setting, this episode's pacing is a very slow burn
  • The usual Telltale problems: not much in the way of gameplay outside decision choices and QTEs that are kind of hard to fail
