    Game of Thrones: Episode 2: The Lost Lords

    The day has come. I’ve been patiently waiting for the release of episode two of Telltale’s Game of Thrones. The first episode, with all of its twists and turns, left me wanting after its cliff hanger ending. After completing “The Lost Lords” I can safely say that it didn’t disappoint, meeting my anticipation head on before upping the ante!

    The Lost Lords picks up right where Iron From Ice ends. King’s Landing has become a very hostile environment for Mira. Due to recent events (and the fact that she’s a Forrester), she’s being watched more than ever before. Gared Tuttle is also having a rough time. Though he has finished his trip to the wall, he can’t decide who he should or shouldn’t befriend; understandable when considering he’s only choices are murderers and thieves. Then there’s Asher, the exiled Forrester who’s become a Sellsword (mercenary). His profession makes him an outcast among the people of Essos, making it difficult to go about any sort of normal life. Things go from bad to worse when his Uncle Malcolm informs him of his family’s dire situation. Bottom line, the Forresters and anyone involved with them are in the worst kind of trouble.

    Just like the first episode, The Lost Lords is packed with action right from the start. The only difference is that it never really lets up; I wasn’t able to relax as the constant screen prompts kept my hands glued to the keyboard. This wasn’t a bad thing given that Game of Thrones story is mainly built on the conversations between characters. I’m a fan of the quickened pace. Those looking more interested in the plot won’t have to worry as there is plenty to soak up. There are familiar faces like Jon Snow, interesting twists, and even a jump scare or two. Most fans will be pleased with what this episode offers. That said, The Lost Lords isn’t perfect.

    It’s great to be able to play as multiple characters. My concern though is that each their arcs felt rather short. As soon as I got sucked into one character’s plight, the game transitioned to the next. Some of the tension is removed when you’re Quantum Leaping between protagonists. Not only that but I can see someone who isn’t as familiar with the books/show getting confused with what’s going on. If each section was a little bit longer it would have greatly minimized this effect. This of course doesn’t completely ruin the experience. It just makes it a little tougher to follow/enjoy.

    Having four playable characters this time around leads to even more story and more variety when it comes to rolls you play and situations you find yourself in. The only thing that seems to be constant between all of the characters is the Forrester’s aren’t safe. With even more references to the series and non-stop action ever fan should be more than happy with this episode. If you’re not familiar with the Game of Thrones series and didn’t play the first episode this is even more of a reason to jump in and finally sink your teeth in to this pop culture icon!



    Telltale added more action while not losing sight of their story. That is something to praise.



    Same as the first episode; it looks good at times.



    Voice acting keeps its high standard with Kit Harington lending his voice for Jon Snow.

    Replay Value:


    There is a lot of different paths to take and it seems some deaths are player determined. I can see plenty of people going back to experience the different outcomes.

    Final Score:
