Well I downloaded Pillars last night and have played through the beginning couple of quests. I like the graphics and the game play. The game is going to be really good and is pretty much another Baldurs Gate.
As in Baldurs Gate, you have to read most of the dialogue. This was, to me, the biggest disadvantage in playing the Baldurs Gate, Icewind Dale & Neverwinter Nights series as reading text is not one of my strong points. I have to really concentrate to read the smaller fonts in the game so the games with all voice acting appeals to me the most. I will persevere and struggle through it. Not that there isn't voice acting it's just the dialogue from you main character and the companions and a lot of quest dialogue is text.
Anyway it's pretty much like playing a newer and improved Baldurs Gate.
There is also a Walkthrough already at Gamepressure
