Full disclosure, the author is in my weekly gaming group. I still payed full price, gleefully, because it's worth it.
tl:dr Just buy it and play amazing superhero games with it.
I've been playing P&PUE along the development process. This is my review of the best Superhero Game I've played.
Mr. Pimentel is one of the best designers working today. I do not exagerate when I say he deserves to be in the same rarified air as Robin Laws. He is the only person I have talked to who designs games with the feel at the table in mind. He works hard to make the experience of the player reflect the experience of the charater. The piles of dice are not there because lots of dice are fun (though they are). You roll 25 dice when a galactic hero does their thing because rolling 25 dice feels like a big deal. Most people need both hands. It makes the experience at the table visceral. If that alone isn't enough to convince you to buy, play, and run this game, consider this.
It works. It does exactly what it says on the cover. It sets you up to easily, quickly, and enjoyably run any superhero game you can imagine. Want to play the everlasting stone cycle? It's got you covered. X-world games? Done. Are you the fear that quacks in the dark? All over it.
It's crunchy and robust enough to satisfy the grognard in your heart. It's easy enough to create a hero you can add your friend's cousin who is visiting for a week and never gamed before without breaking stride.
I know all this because I was on the receiving end of phone calls to listen to how the game could be made better, more intuitive, more fun. Mostly I made approving noises because Mr. Pimentel is brilliant. Every once in a great while I would say something to help him resolve a conflict.
I know I sound like a loopy fanboy, partly because I am, mostly because this game deserves the recognition. Now if you'll excuse me, I have some death traps to design. Supers aren't going to kill themselves you know.
