Ken Follet's The Pillars of the Earth is a surprisingly well grounded game. As mundane as the subject matter may seem at first, it's incredibly absorbing as you follow the lives of realistic people. While not perfect, suffering from general adventure game problems of backtracking and long-winded puzzles, the game more than makes up for it with compelling characters, a great script with fantastic voice acting and an aesthetic design that benefits the game greatly.

Nothing else on PC tells a story quite like this, and although it will be a hard sell for some, the slow pace is worth persevering with if you value storytelling above all. Sometimes it slows to the point of dullness and interaction is limited at best, but I loved immersing myself in this evocative medieval world.

The ending is bittersweet in that it does wrap up the storyline of the Book but ends right when everything is going to kick up a notch. So, I am definitely interested in where the next book will go. I have not read the book this is based on, but Daedalic’s interpretation seems an ideal way to experience the story of The Pillars of the Earth so far.
