A GAME OF THRONES: GEN­E­SIS (PG)

Herald Sun - Switched On - - Front Page -

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.
