I’ve played Pathfinder several times since receiving it for Christmas, and have generally found it to be a blast. The mechanics are compelling, and since the scenarios are relatively short, you can fit a play session into however much time you have.

Since the review above explains the general mechanics, I’m going to limit the review to some notes I have on the game.

PROS

Great Diversity of Characters: There are seven characters in the base game, and four more added with the character add-on pack. Each character has a very different background and playstyle, as well as a good mix of gender and racial diversity. You should easily find one you enjoy playing.

Fun Gameplay: Gameplay is a tricky mix of using enough cards to explore before time runs up and win in combat, while not burning through so many cards you die. As you complete scenarios you’ll “level up” and become stronger, making for an even more engaging play experience.

Replayability: As you progress through the game your character will gain new abilities (and face new challenges) keeping gameplay fresh. If by chance you finish all the scenarios on one character, you can always play a new character for a very different gameplay experience.

Box Organization: The box is very well organized. Sometimes it’s the little things that really impress you.

CONS

Card Errors: This is what prevents me from giving the game a 10. There are several errors printed on the cards, causing us to go refer to the forums when something looks fishy. It’s an annoying waste of time. It would be nice if Paizo includes corrected base game cards with one of the future expansions.
