"A good extension of D&D 3rd edition"
4 stars"

While in no way perfect, Pathfinder does prove to be a very well thought out and well balanced continuation of the D&D 3.5 ruleset. Each class feels unique and useful, and much more balanced than in 3.5.

The Core Rulebook also has some very useful resources usually reserved for a Game Master's guide in it, making it almost 2 books in 1 at nearly 600 pages, and a great starting point if you want to get into the game.

"Great book, great price."
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Arrived in excellent time and what great value for money this book is.

"Damn brilliant, probably the best system I have used."
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

At almost 600 pages, a decent amount of information to help the DM/GM, more character options than I could ask for, this has got more than enough to run a campaign with without any other books. This is definitely the best system I have had a chance to use. If I had to make some criticism, I guess it is a bit heavy… Unsurprisingly.

"Epic"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

This is a great system.

3.0 was great, 3.5 was great, Pathfinder is great.

I didn't mind the paper stock at all – it is probably slightly thinner than the 3.5 books but I'm sure it'll stand up alright.

You can't go wrong with this book.

"Great product"

A great way to get started with the Pathfinder RPG. All you need is this book, some friends, and a set of dice.

"Essential"
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

If you're new to the Pathfinder RPG then this is the first book you should buy. It's huge! And a daunting read, but within is a heap of great art to help your imagination run wild. However one negative would be the quality of the paper stock the pages are made from – it's not that great. Hopefully Paizo address this with subsequent editions.
