The game takes place in various locations Ironrath, Yunkai, Kings Landing and The Wall. If you are a fan of the show, the game offers comfort in the story style you are familiar with but has enough differences to stand on its own.
The episode starts you off in Yunkai, with Asher with his sidekick Beskha. In a quick opening scene Asher kills a couple of people who are trying to kill him. He is then informed by his uncle, who is there trying to raise a army to fight Roose Bolton in Ironrath, that his father and his two brothers, Rodrik and Ethan were dead.
We then see a wagon is approaching Ironrath with the bodies of the soldiers killed which included the bodies of Lord Forrester and Rodrik’s only to find out Rodrik is still alive as he forces himself off the wagon wounded. The Maester is called to help and the Forrester’s are notified that Rodrik is alive and in Ironrath. The Forresters’ struggle for control of the Ironwood intensifies, but their quest for allies to help wrestle it from the rival Lord Whitehill involves little in the way of intrigue.
Mira is helping Margery plan her wedding to King Joffrey, by writing out wedding invitations. While we see that Mira has the opportunity to betray Margery’s trust, is one of the toughest decisions in the game by far. It was one of the toughest decisions I had to make in the game so far while playing.
Garet Tuttle is introduced to the life of the Nights Watch that closely retreads Jon Snows story. I will tell you, just like any TellTale game, it is important to figure out who will be Garets’ enemy or friend from his two fellow recruits.
This part of the episode offers some quick training in archery and combat, although it doesn’t make it any easier. I really felt like the episode really started to drag on at this point and lose its momentum and even the quick appearance of familiar character doesn’t help pick up the pace.
Episode 2 in The Game of Thrones: The Lost Lords, takes about roughly 90 minutes long to play.
Overall, I am enjoying playing the game and I am looking forward to Episode 3.
