This is not the worst treatment of anthropomorphic animals I have ever seen, that prize goes to Savage Species, but it is the most confusing. There is nothing here to really judge or be entirely useful. The component parts are fairly easy to understand but the end result is not. Each animal type is given a point total and very brief overview of how to compile totals in the beginning but that's all there is. There is no scale. No range of numbers to determine how powerful a given race might be, just point totals. What are we GMs supposed to compare these numbers to? Is this supposed to link up with Ultimate Races when it gets published by Paizo? Is there a scale of point totals that got left out somehow? In the absence of any sense of scale a given GM is left to guess what the point totals mean.

If you really want these types of races in your game don't get this unless you're prepared to invent your own sliding scale. Skortched Urf's Fursona pdfs are much more concise, if they do go overboard with the sexual themes that not everyone wants in their games. As a GM this one is going on my list of purchaes I have made that I really shouldn't have but as an alternate system to Fursona it is clearly lacking.
