Ships Ahoy - Game of Thrones RPG

ATLUS announces the North American release of Game of Thrones, the RPG based on the A Song of Ice and Fire series of novels (apparently Game of Thrones: The Game was just a working title, awesome as it is). Here's the news:

ATLUS, a brand of Index Digital Media, Inc., today announced that "Game of Thrones™," the RPG based on the internationally bestselling book series A Song of Ice and Fire by George R. R. Martin and the critically acclaimed HBO® television series, Game of Thrones®, is now available in stores across North America for Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, and PC via download.

Replete with the authentic political intrigue and complex narrative the acclaimed fantasy series is known for, this captivating interactive adventure gives fans a new and exciting way to lose themselves in the world of Westeros. With an original story written under the watchful eye of George R. R. Martin, who recently stated, "I've sampled the work Cyanide has done, and I'm largely happy with it. I think many of my fans will share that feeling," the "Game of Thrones" RPG is filled with characters and locations straight from the pages of the beloved fantasy novels. Moreover, the game includes the likenesses of fan favorite characters from the television adaptation. "Game of Thrones" promises to deliver the ultimate interactive roleplaying experience for fans of the series and its gritty, sophisticated medieval drama.

I've found one short one so far that called it ugly and mediocre.

This one calls it outright bad: Link

Reading through that review, it seems like what is harped on is the lack of hand holding for quest guidance and inventory purchases (ie just a lack of modern conveniences)? The combat knock sounds reminiscent of how Neverwinter Nights/Dragon Age play out for combat... so hopefully there's a PC demo to give it a try. Sounds like it'll be a love/hate it reaction depending on how much convenience you expect in an rpg these days.

Definitely waiting for a Steam sale and some forum reviews before really giving it a go as 50 is way out of line for it from the sounds of it (15-20 hours of play for an RPG? And doesn't sound like too much replay value either)
