Game of Thrones Episode 1 review: Adventure and intrigue on Xbox One, 360, and PC

Telltale Games has been busy lately. Last week the studio released the first episode of Tales from the Borderlands on consoles and PC, celebrating the game’s premiere at the Alamo Drafthouse. Shortly thereafter Telltale announced the impending arrival of Game of Thrones, another episodic adventure game based on the hit HBO series of the same name. Game of Thrones Episode 1: Iron from Ice just has arrived on Xbox One and 360, PC, and Playstation systems. Whereas Tales from the Borderlands was a lighthearted and humorous adventure, Game of Thrones tells a much darker and bloodier story. Fans of the show and books wouldn’t have it any other way. We’ve run through the entire first episode and made lots of tough choices in order to bring you this full review.
