That CK2 mod does seem the best hope for a decent GoT game. Just the mere mention of Cyanide is enough to make me doubt anything more than a 6/10.

But ok, let's dispense with all that crap and talk about the review. Interestingly it's confined to the Xbox 360, there isn't one for the PC (or PS3). One of Cyanide's last games Blood Bowl was awful for the 360 and great for the PC.

Game Informer gave it a 6 as well.
Joystiq seemed to not like it as well, giving it a 2.5 / 5.

Ah I'll hold out for more reviews but my hope is waning. Given that most of my favourite games are buggy messes (AP, Vamp Bloodlines) maybe I'll be more forgiving. Think that great Pirates of the Caribbean game which had bugger all to do with the movie got a few low to average scores in it's time.

Has anyone actually played it?
Just curious. I haven't actually seen anyone who's played it yet. Maybe they shouldn't have released against Diablo 3.

Forbes dislike it too - http://www.forbes.com/sites/erikkain...t-impressions/. I thnk we have here a bargain bucket game. There'll be a crowd of people somewhere who will proclaim it to be the best game ever but those guys always exist. Realistically it's going to be: demo, super-cheap-on-Steam, or nothing.

They kind of tried that with GoT: Genesis. Wasn't very good either.

I'm still kind of looking forward to playing it. I can put up with a lot of gameplay headaches provided that a game has a good plot. Plus, it's Game of Thrones!---Which goes a long way for me.
I'll wait until it's in the 10 dollar range, though (I imagine it will be by Christmas if it's getting such bad reviews and since it hasn't even cracked the top 10 on steam yet, which means it must be selling pretty poorly).

Looking at this here combat system vid, the combat itself seems kinda stale. Outside of the cutscenes/scripted stuff, it lacks the impact.
Then again, I like the (written) series because of all the dirty shit the Lannisters get up to, not for the wet-dream of 13-year olds about armor, swords and boobies. Can't make an action game all about politics, wouldnt work.

The original had terrible combat but the sequel is akin to Batman : Arkham Asylum than anything. It has its flaws but I don't see it as being potentially game-wrecking as it was in the original.
If you enjoy the style of combat in Kingdoms of Amular [a quick check of your Steam profile indicates you've played the game] you'll have little to complain about in The Witcher 2. And if you want a GoT style political RPG story it's the go-to game.

It follows on from the events of the first but it's a pretty self contained story; you won't miss much having not played the first [and the game includes a cinematic video of the first games events to get you up to speed anyway].
You can view that recap here if you want: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RPHgWfWFr9k
