    Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous is a bold, dark, epic saga, featuring an astonishing replayability value. The developers have experimented with Kingmaker, and have gone all-in with Wrath of the Righteous, creating one of the best story-driven CRPGs of late.

    Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous is exactly what I’ve been looking for in terms of a video game version of a traditional D&D campaign. I haven’t been able to play D&D with my group in over a year and a half, but Wrath of the Righteous scratches that itch, and then some. This is easy for me to say as a more casual tabletop RPG player. However, I’m confident in saying that Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous is rich and robust enough that even the most battle-hardened tabletop RPG veterans can have a blast while saving Golarion.

    Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous is a fantasy role-playing game that is highly playable and extremely rich in content. Although there are still some obvious bugs and optimization issues in the game, it is still the brightest new star in the fantasy role-playing games.

    A swarm of bugs is the only serious flaw of Wrath of the Righteous. While the developers managed to avoid a Kingmaker-level catastrophe, please do save this game for the upcoming holidays, or maybe even take a vacation — it’s worth it.

    Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous is what every CRPG should be. Great storytelling, complex and detailed combat system, very well written characters and an artistic compartment that does its job very well. A must play for the fans of the genre.

    Wrath of the Righteous offers an epic campaign that'll make you feel important right from the beginning and that will keep throwing outrageous enemies and events at you. This second Pathfinder doesn't evolve much though, and still misses some mechanism that would set it apart. The tactical Heroes stuff doesn't do the job.

    Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous is not a big improvement over Kingmaker, but it is an improvement, nonetheless. Some of its elements are exceptional, like the overwhelming variety in classes, skills, and "paths," or the general epic aura it has, while some other parts sit somewhere between decent and good, like the story (which is a bit too stereotypical), the Crusade portion of the gameplay (which is a buggy chore), and the actual role-playing, which, while fine and all, won't be enough for those spoiled by other modern classics of the genre. Despite some its flaws, it is undoubtedly very entertaining, and highly recommended, as it will surely satisfy your hunger for a good RPG.

    One of the best rpg experience i've ever had - both in terms of gameplay, narrative and immersion! It is literally a masterpiece.

I always want to like these rpgs, but tend to get bored. So far, however, this game has really held my attention - it keeps on adding new elements to keep the interest alive, and is far bigger in scope than first appears. It builds a compelling world, with a good range of characters, who can be quite amusing, or do unexpected things. Fun times, and well worth the price of entry, especially if discounted. I only drop a point as the army management system is not well explained in game. Expand

    I would reiterate ShakkaZu's review about this game being plagued by serious balancing and pacing problems. I couldn't get through Act 3I would reiterate ShakkaZu's review about this game being plagued by serious balancing and pacing problems. I couldn't get through Act 3 because of a combination of the enemies with 60 AC and the horribly implemented Crusade mode.

    However, I think a lot of the issues with the game are inherent to DND 3.5e/Pathfinder 1e as a whole. There is a reason why DND 5e reduced AC and attack bonuses -- to reduce the tedium of having to cast 100 buffs and debuffs so that your characters are actually capable of hitting npcs and vice versa. Unfortunately, Owlcat decided to be 95% faithful to DND 3.5e/Pathfinder 1e, which is why this game is such a tedious and frustrating slog.

    Would not recommend at full price. If you're in the mood for a CRPG, try out Solasta: Crown of the Magister or wait for the much, much, much better Baldur's Gate 3.

There are game-breaking bugs everywhere. Look at the forums and you'll see pinned posts by Owlcat warning you not to use basic game features, as these can break the game and they know it. They've known it for a month. They've known it since before release and decided to release anyway.

    I've personally reported 50 bugs since launch and not a single one has been fixed yet. Do not support this. Do not try to play it, because bugs will destroy your experience, if not your game.
