Book Readers Only Need ApplyI had not read the novel series or had even heard of it before purchasing this game. I'm a big fan of classic point and click adventure games like Monkey Island and the sort, but this title felt half-baked in execution. The voice acting is very well done and the environments and characters have a nice charm to them, but the overall title felt flat. Had I read the books I'm sure this would have been more enjoyable for me, and for the price I paid it wasn't bad, however, I caution those who have not been invested in this series from diving in.

Wrong GameI was given pillars of eternity instead by GameStop, so I'll give this an average rating. Pillars of eternity; however, was not a fun game in my opinion. The mechanics slowed gameplay and made it harder to play
