    Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous Enhanced Edition was already one of the best RPGs on PC, and on PS4, there's virtually nothing else like it. With an enthralling narrative, evocative world, and nearly endless build variety and replay value, Wrath of the Righteous is a glorious game to get lost in for whole weeks at a time.

    Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous represents not only a significant improvement over its predecessor, but an enormous and sophisticated CRPG that players with a hankering for epic adventure and narratives will surely enjoy. Though it still isn't quite as polished as it needs to be and is complicated enough that genre newcomers might struggle with its information packed menus, largely text driven dialogue and detailed mechanics, Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous is nonetheless a vastly epic, incredibly entertaining and meaty adventure that is deserving of your time.

    Is Wrath of the Righteous a natural 20? Almost. Knowing the care that the developers invested in the previous game, I am pretty sure that the new Pathfinder will shed its initial issues and will be filed down until there are no more annoying edges, just a smooth experience. It is a dream come true for any classical RPG fans that want to be lost in an epic world, going through heroic adventures, while also exploring fulfilling side quests with quirky, yet charming companions. It has a high replay value, and you need at least two playthroughs to experience most of the content. It is a modern take on classical roleplaying that does not disappoint and manages to be newbie friendly as well.

    A staggering amount of content makes Pathfinder: Wrath Of The Righteous an easy choice to recommend for those who have a lot of time to invest. An interesting narrative and player choices that define the outcome, this is a tale that is well worth experiencing.

    I adore so much of Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous, from being able to play as an undead lich, to how the story adapts to that choice like you're playing through an incredibly detailed dark fantasy book. That's why I'm almost devastated by the game's lack of polish. It's unbalanced, there's bugs that forced regular restarts, and the console UI isn't suited to managing a crusade, which isn't as interesting as kingdom management. If this is your kind of game, you're better off trying to play on PC. Otherwise, you can join me in enjoying the game despite itself, or play Kingmaker until this has had some significant patches.

    Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous is an excellent RPG with engaging story, and deep gameplay mechanics and well-written characters. It works very well in this console port. [Recommended]

I also recommend the pc version as well, since its been out longer and cost cheaper. Expand

    I love this game to death, as I have played it on PC shortly after the initial release and put over 120 hours in a "good" walkthrough (AngelI love this game to death, as I have played it on PC shortly after the initial release and put over 120 hours in a "good" walkthrough (Angel path). I've also decided to pick it up on consoles because it was released on PS4 on a CD - the standard box is called Limited Edition and includes a full-color 30-page handbook with artwork and a set of beautiful stickers! I wanted this game on a shelf, and picking it on consoles is the only way to do so nowadays. I'm going to do another walkthrough on a PS5, probably a "bad" one (Lich or Demon, not sure yet), and for the moment I'm just about 10 hours in. It runs surprisingly well on a PS5, just saw two minor glitches so far, but no game-breaking bugs which is totally cool. I guess the game won't be bug-free, no chance for that, but the PC version is great right now, patched and polished. I bet this one will get all the fixes down the road. I'd say it is a great moment to pick it up as Pathfinder is one of the best RPGs of late, and right now it can be done with a gorgeous physical edition. The only sad thing is - there is no native PS5 version, only a past-gen one, and I hope the devs will update it in the following future. Expand

    Picked it on PS5. There were stickers in the box and a mini book, which was nice. The game works much more smoothly than their previous game,Picked it on PS5. There were stickers in the box and a mini book, which was nice. The game works much more smoothly than their previous game, but I haven't gotten too far. The controls are not always comfortable, but I know what I was getting into, I know Pathfinder is complicated. And the textures are low res, but the devs said they will patch it soon. Overall, it's not perfect, but playable. And it's an Owlcat's RPG, so it's addictive af. RIP my life lmao Expand

    I don’t know which QA said this was ready to go, but I have never played a buggier game than this. Ever. You can’t even play 30 minutesI don’t know which QA said this was ready to go, but I have never played a buggier game than this. Ever. You can’t even play 30 minutes without it crashing. Meanwhile, there’s a battle in which you’re FORCED to play turn-based, which takes **** forever. You can never finish that battle because the game constantly crashes. So. Best of luck with this awful trash. Expand

    When I buy a game I expect it to run smoothly, it glitching, freezing and has bugs with animations.
