Was fun the first 7 or so games, then it just became more and more of a chore to play. I would still play from time to time though. Just not more than once within a few months.

8. Initial rating after our first campaign attempt. Very enjoyable & easy to learn. Can't wait to play it again! After several more plays, changing rating to a 9. Only played base scenario with various friends so far, each time has felt different and each character has unique attributes which compliments various team combinations. Having played the entire first campaign, reducing rating to 7.9 as no new mechanics introduced.

Only played digitally When playing Dungeons and Dragons, a player should role play to solve problems with their characters skills and a good DM should view failed skill tests not as a failure by the player but as an opportunity for story progression. It is a shame that the designers of this game got it all wrong. It is an endless progression of having to test a skill that is not your strength and failed rolls being simply a step towards failure. It is a great demonstration of the wide variance of a small number of dice, since it is almost impossible to get any check much better than 70%. The biggest disappointment of this game is how amazingly the character progression is handled. It is criminal that no designer making a campaign game has stolen it yet.

Has the same problem as many co-op games, where 1. The most experienced player can just tell everyone else what to do to win. and 2. There's usually a "best" thing to do, and once you figure out how to play there's not much of a game left since there are few tough decisions. In fact you can basically just copy and paste my Zombicide review here. Supposedly future adventure packs will make the game more varied and interesting, but I didn't really enjoy myself enough playing the base game to want to give them more money. Also important to note is that this basically just simulates the fighting portion of a tabletop RPG (my least favorite part) and has very little actual role playing (my favorite part). Your own opinions of those two aspects of tabletop gaming will likely greatly determine how much you enjoy Pathfinder.

Sometimes you just want to roll some dice and get some stuff.
