What started of as a fantasy trilogy, and now spans 5 books (with a planned total of seven books in the series), 'A song of Ice and Fire' by George RR Martin is one of those series that sets itself as a benchmark for the genre. Full of intrigue...

An in-depth and innovative espionage system provides some clever ways to stick it to your rivals early-on, but micromanaging all of the game's diplomatic complexities grows cumbersome as encounters progress. A Game of Thrones: Genesis's sluggish...

This odd, subterfuge-centric take on strategy grasps some of the underlying essence of the fantasy saga it's based on, but none of the character. Smart ideas are wasted on a drab, repetitive and fussy game....

It’s always tough condensing a whole landscape full of backstabbing politics into a real-time strategy, especially if all that two-faced conniving happens to be from a series of world renowned novels. George R. R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and...

International Review By PCMweb on 50

A Game of Thrones: Genesis is zeker geen geweldige strategiegame geworden. De gameplay is op zich goed, maar verloopt erg traag omdat je steeds je hele koninkrijk moet controleren op vijandige spionnen en verraders. Het gebrek aan indrukwekkende...

A Game of Thrones: Genesis ligner ikke mange andre moderne sanntidsstrategispill. Det har unike styrker gjennom gode og interessante systemer, men også klare svakheter når det kommer til kamp og krig. Spillet fortjener uansett mye ros for sitt...
