May 17, 2021This is a point-and-click historical fiction novel. It's a good story that's quite emotional at times. I definitely enjoyed it, but it's also a bit mundane and bland compared to top-notch walking simulators such as The Walking Dead, Life is Strange, and What Remains of Edith Finch--all of which are extremely emotionally-stimulating compared to The Pillars of the Earth.
Jul 2, 2018The 20-plus hour commitment to The Pillars of the Earth is well worth it to enjoy this interactive towering tale, faithfully adapted to near-perfection by Daedalic. For patient gamers, this is not a narrative adventure that should be missed.
Jun 4, 2018A great adaptation of Ken Follett's Pillars of the Earth. Daedalic focused on narrative rather tan puzzles, but the game is very enjoyable due to rich characters and strong story.
Apr 19, 2018Atmospheric adaptation of the story as interactive visual novel. Overall a bit too lengthy and static with little gameplay variety.
