Daedalic Entertainment's Pillars of the Earth is basically a virtual book that only differs from the paper original in its scope. Beyond that, it brings an equally strong story, supported by a dense atmosphere.

The most notable quality of The Pillars of the Earth is that you'll end wanting to read the original Ken Follett novel. In the 24-ish hours required to reach the end of the game, below a slow pace and a pretty basic gameplay, you'll find a great story and an excellent narrative.

We could talk about interactive book, but it won't be enough, we could talk about graphic novel, but it won't be enough. Is a particular narrative project, inheritance of the great story of Ken Follet's Pillars of the Earth.

Ken Follet's The Pillars of the Earth is one of the best episodic adventure games. Also it the best book to game conversion I've experienced. It's full of murder, revenge, redemption, backstabbing, and misfortune. It ends brilliantly setting up the episode to come. Can't wait for the second one.

Ken Follett’s The Pillars of the Earth is hurt by the actual story unraveling too slowly, even for a prologue. If you’re a fan of dramas and have some time to spare, The Pillars of the Earth might be the choice to break the monotony from regular run and gun games.
