Meh, I'm enjoying it well enough. I figured it wouldn't be an amazing game. Just feels like a poor mans Dragon Age. The story's cool and the voice acting is hit and miss. Only about an hour in though so can't say all that much about it. 6/10 to be honest.
I'm loving it just based on the fact that I am playing, as a character in the ASOIAF universe. I have only completed Ch 1 so my only real complaint is I wish there was more interaction with guys like Benjen Stark or Maester Aemon, or my favorite Yoren hell even Alliser Thorne.

The studio, Cyanide, isn't the most prosperous studio compared to Bethesda or BioWare. The game was in development since 2008, maybe even 2007, which could explain why the graphics are not up to today's standards. From the artbook I got with my preorder, they had a lot of good ideas for the game, like a tournament where you joust and were given the option to choose your House and customize a character. But monetary restraints did not allow this to happen. But from the Q&A in the beginning of the artbook, you can tell they really did care about the ASOIAF universe. They know what they are talking about, and they are big fans of the series. It's just that they are not the right studio to bring something as big as this IP to the gaming sphere.
I, personally, like the game. The story is great, and the choices play a big part in it from what I've played thus far.
Sadly with how negative the reviews are, I am sure the sales will drop like a brick. Too bad, cause if they got a chance to do a second one I am sure a lot of the stuff they cut would be added into the second game; I would love to be a Bannerman for Stannis.
