|I didn't expect to like this, After all, it's the sequel to Pillars of the Earth, which I didn't like because of the random element. This still has a random element, but the randomness is integrated into the game in a more balanced way, without feeling like anyone is getting screwed. I haven't read the book, but the gameplay is solid.
