A GAME OF THRONES: GENESIS (PG)
PC, $69.95 ★★ George R.R. Martin’s epic source material provides an excellent foundation for a real-time strategy game and Genesis quite rightly focuses on attaining victory via politicking and treachery rather than outright warfare. Unfortunately, micromanaging some of the game’s diplomatic complexities quickly grows cumbersome. Diehard fans of the novels and TV series may get something out of it, but it’s not worth a look otherwise. Out now.
