About This Game

What King will you be?
Conqueror, Usurper or Diplomat?
"A Game of Thrones - Genesis" immerses you into the heart of the battles and intrigues between the Houses that shaped the Kingdom of Westeros. From Nymeria's arrival in the Kingdom of Dorne to the awakening of the "Others" beyond the Wall, you'll live the origins of A Game of Thrones saga through more than 1000 years of history, by taking part in Westeros' founding events and largest battles.
In this great strategy game, victory does not necessarily result from brute force. You can choose to use a military approach and besiege your opponents, strangle them in an economical war, or even use dirty tricks and diplomacy to politically crush them. Treachery and deception are everywhere and can be more efficient than the most powerful army. So watch your back and show no mercy if you want to keep sat on the Iron Throne.

This game is creative and full of good ideas. It introduces a nice system of spies assassins diplomates and secret alliences. There are suductions and sabatages and bribes and double agents.

Unfortunatly the game is horribly executed.

The game pace is to quick for its own good. It gives no time to observe the actions of potential traitors or plan alliences the best strategy is just to spend the extra money and go for everyone.

But the final blow is the military side of the game.

War gets declared and all the best mechanies of the go away and it becomes a build, build build charge game with a lack of strategy. Additionally raiders and assassins are so cheap that they are the only units worth getting. Why bother spying or bribing when you can assassinate everyone with half the effort.

This game had so much potential which is why it is so disappointing.

If you like Game of Thrones and like war strategy games like Men of War Assault Squad, then I will highly recommend this game. It will let you fight in the wars through out the history of Westeros. As Nimera, As Aegon I, even has Robert Baratheon for the quest of the Iron Throne. I'm actually not into games like this but I enjoyed it. It is also multiplayer, so could be fun for people who like these games.

Just no. Don't make the same mistake I made, don't fool yourself thinking being a hardcore GoT fan will allow you to withstand the multiple flaws and limitations of this game. The graphics are nothing amazing, the interface of the game looks very amateurish and disappointing, its hard to find anything enjoyable about this game. Can be interesting for a few players, but the majority will hate it.
Do not recommend.

It's pretty bad. As others have pointed out, it has many creative ideas and and potential. I just don't feel they went anywhere with it.

I don't want to elaborate with a lengthy review, just leave my opinion for others to see. I suggest watching some videos, or reading one of the many reviews(both positive and negative) already available and drawing your own opinion.
