Despite its downsides, Pillars of the Earth Book Two: Sowing the Wind still presents a compelling story that will leave you wanting to know more about the characters and the world they live in. You will be left waiting for the conclusion of the story and watching how your decisions carry on. As in any good adventure game, decisions and specially mistakes, will chase after and come back to haunt you even when you think they’re done for.
Ken Follett's The Pillars of the Earth: Book Two is more of the same as found in Book One, with the same beautifully drawn characters and locations. The voice acting continues to drive the emotional beats of the story, as Daedalic continues to sprawl through the huge novel and bring it down to a manageable and still enjoyable visual novel. While glitches, bugs, and some annoying open world areas ruin the flow of an otherwise intriguing story, this does well to set up what promises to be a satisfying Book Three, as all the character arcs and story threads get tied up in a satisfying conclusion.
The Pillars of the Earth Book Two carries on the great work established by the previous episode, providing a beautifully written narrative, interesting characters and meaningful player choice against the backdrop of some of the most sumptuous locations ever depicted in an adventure game. If you haven't already, now is the time to stop sleeping on The Pillars of the Earth.
