It consists of a very in depth event chain crafted to give an immersive experience of the times during the A Game of Thrones book! What else!
The facial animations are nowhere near as bad as youtube comments make it out to be
While I lack a comment about the actual agot, I'd like to point out that a lot of people seem to either A: Still be upset about ME3's ending or B: Don't realize bioware's sin as a triple A maker is questionable graphics departments. MEA seems to be a fairly standard release for them. Solid game, but the animation and graphics are a bit questionable to say the least. It's no different than the bug and glitch filled mess of a bethesda release or the fact paradox model seems to be a barebones released that gets updated post-release into a complete game. Most companies have predictable faults in their games.
Plus, story>Gameplay>graphics. As long as the graphics dont kill my eyes(and on some older games like aidyn chronicles the first mage) I don't care as long as the first two are good.
And just to prevent full off topic: Yes, the valyrian swords are traits. I believe this had to do with tracking or something that the artefact method couldn't do. Plus, it leaves more room for their modified weapon traits anyways. Dual weilding the bone breaker and blackfyre ftw!
