A Game of Thrones is a total conversion mod for Crusader Kings II, based on George R. R. Martin’s fantasy novel series, A Song of Ice and Fire.
I have to review? What's there to review? Actually, why in the Seven Hells are you wasting time reading this? GO PLAY THIS MOD. Pronto.
This mod is fantastic. The content is second to none - I play this more than the base game now. I originally looked to this to keep me occupied until The Old Gods, an expansion for Crusader Kings 2, comes out. But now, I'm worried that this mod will have thrown me off of it entirely.
The scenarios are excellently done. Scripted events play out just like the books - although you can deviate entirely and go a separate direction with it all, should you wish, the option is there to play events just as they were in the Song of Ice and Fire books! The dueling system is fantastic, it's always fun to cut down a much hated rival on the field of battle when your armies clash. Although, sometimes, it can go the opposite direction...best watch that.
The music isn't the greatest, but hey. I mute it and play the Game of Thrones soundtracks in the background, that works for me. However, the rest of the game is good enough to merit a 10/10 review, even with the music being a bit off.
Keep up the great work, guys. I can't wait to see what else you have planned. Even if the Eastern Continent never comes out, I'm quite happy with just Westeros!
...that said, if the Eastern Continent DOES come out... Think we could possibly see a rebirth of the Valyrian Empire? Maybe? Hmm? Either way, looking forward to seeing where this goes in the future.
Number 1 mod in my book.
It has everything everyone wants in a game of thrones game, better yet, it's free!
Instead of paying 30-40 dollars for a crappy game like "a game of thrones genesis" or "a game of thrones rpg" play this and ACTUALLY enjoy yourself!
This allows you to create your own sagas and what ifs!
What if Eddard never died? What if he waged war on Robert? What if Lyanna lived? What if Robert never won the war?
10/10 I highly recommend this mod
This mod, which to begin with is flawlessly constructed, gives you (the player, the power to take the reigns on the entire Game of Thrones story. Plus, if you don't care for the Song of Ice And Fire story, you have the option to play about one thousand years before current events! If that wasn't enough to credit at ten out of ten rating by its self just look to the small details: being able to find a Valyrian steel sword, being able behead prisoners yourself as a Northman, or being able to tax the crop as a Tyrell. This mod is as good as they come, and I for one, can't wait to see what's in store for us with Essos later this month!
