Critic Reviews for Game of Thrones: Season 2

All Critics (34) | Top Critics (19)

Peter Dinklage's Tyrion is the series' MVP, but there's not a single character without meat on their bones. Unless you count the White Walkers.

Empire Magazine

The second season has more fantasy elements than the first, but otherwise it's largely more of the same.

Flix Capacitor

I'll speak plainly: It's bloody fantastic

February 7, 2014 | Full Review…

If you thought the world of Game of Thrones was incredibly vast and complex and festooned with a crazy multitude of characters, brace yourself for Season 2.

Contra Costa Times

While Game of Thrones is steadily expanding-just look at the new pit stop on the map flyover in the credits-"The North Remembers" began hustling off steadily and confidently.

Because of the limits set within the books, the screenwriters have to choose how to make the most out of every line written. For just 10 hours this season, I don't envy them, and yet it's fascinating watching it unfold.

The second season gets even more epic.

Super Reviewer

fantastic last few episodes to end the season

Ed K

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.
