Critic Reviews for Game of Thrones: Season 2

All Critics (36) | Top Critics (19)

Game of Thrones is absurd in its ambition and scope.

September 16, 2013 | Full Review…

Once you sort out all the teams and players, Game of Thrones falls together like a good Western.

April 1, 2012 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Game of Thrones nonetheless is an undertaking worth applauding for its audacity if not always for its overall senses of direction or cohesion.

April 1, 2012 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…
Top Critic

TV's best (but do your homework before diving in).

April 1, 2012 | Rating: A+ | Full Review…
Top Critic

That Thrones remains so utterly unpredictable makes it even more mesmerizing.

April 1, 2012 | Rating: 4/4 | Full Review…

[Game of Thrones] is a great political epic, in which the nature of power and government is questioned, over and over again, and it's left to the audience to come up with its own disquieting answers.

Audience Reviews for Game of Thrones: Season 2


Game of Thrones Season 2 continues to build up its massive storytelling and visual enthrallment. From strong performances to even stronger dramatic plots, this season exceeds any expectation and easily provides more acclaim from its audiences and growing fanbase/followers. 4.5/5


Super Reviewer


Continues the excellent writting, acting and action set pieces that the first Season introduced, with even more intricate betrayls and characters that might change the game at every turn. It's ruthless, violent, exciting and I wouldn't have it any other way.
