Game of Thrones: Episode 2 Review

Telltale’s highly anticipated take on Game of Thrones continues at a blistering pace, following on from the shocking events of the previous episode full of death, double dealings and power struggles, things which seem to make a normal day around Westeros.

Games of Thrones: A Telltale Games Series: Episode Two does not dawdle around and gets straight into the action, starting with a brief "previously" updating the players; this new episode then whisks us away to the far east where Ethan Forrester's brother Asher went into self-proclaimed exile where we find him right into the middle of a bounty hunt gone awry. As with the previous episode we also get to guide a few other characters on this new tale, again we venture to Kings Landing where Mira Forrester, handmaiden to Margaery Tyrell may have bitten off more than she can chew in dealing with Tyrion Lannister and an unexpected new character dealing with the fallout back at House Forrester; plus we also catch up with Gared Tuttle who last episode was banished to The Wall where we find him in training under the watchful eye of Frostfinger.

As with all of these Telltale games there is a good few hours of playtime involved with each release, each one mimicking a TV episode so it is best played in one sitting. With the gameplay being more of an interactive novel than a game, for the majority you will be watching the events unfold, the game on occasion throwing a quick time button pressing event during the more action orientated moments or asking for prompts on how to react during conversations. More often than not the outcome of these conversations will be the same however there are some instances where characters will take note, presumably these will have some effect in later episodes.

Being the second episode of Game of Thrones from Telltale, those considering purchasing this will already have a rough idea of what to expect and fans of Game of Thrones will not be disappointed as Telltale have perfectly managed to capture the constant power struggles of Westeros with their own standalone story.
