Game of Thrones: The plot thickens but our patience runs out
Game of Thrones episode 2: The Lost Lords continues where episode 1: Iron from Ice left us. We get to meet some new characters, the story develops in a typical Game of Thrones style, but the gameplay gets pretty annoying by now.
The story of the Forresters unfolds
The Forrester house is in deep trouble and it seems that Asher Forrester is the one who can save the whole clan. Good thing we meet him at the start of Game of Thrones episode 2: The Lost Lords. He’s been acting like a bounty hunter, but finds himself in a pickle when a group tries to set him up for murder. How will you get out of this trouble?
Then a rather dull part takes place, so the part where Mia Forrester has to decide whether or not to betray Margaery Tyrell is more than welcome. Game of Thrones episode 2: The Lost Lords is a rather short episode: it won’t take you much more than 90 minutes to finish it. Which is good, because even though the story unfolds, it gets pretty annoying. There are no moments where you sit on the edge of your seat and the gameplay gets pretty boring.
Pressing the right button at the right moment just isn’t challenging. If you’re not quick enough, you just have to do it over and over again. In Game of Thrones episode 2: The Lost Lords it feels like your decisions are irrelevant (Mia’s choice is an exception: it’s also the only decision where there is no time limit).
Only 4 more episodes to go
Where after playing episode 1 we said we were eager to see more, it is obvious that our enthusiasm has been tempered a lot by playing The Lost Lords. In Iron from Ice the story made up for the monotonous gameplay, but as soon as even the story takes a break it just feels like a chore to get through.
We really hope that episode 3 will make up for this, because for now it appears like we lost 90 minutes.
