Pathfinder is Dungeons & Dragons 3.5 tweaked and improved upon. The most important improvements were in the early levels of play, where the game makes it a point to give spell casters something useful they can do in a fight AFTER they cast their one offensive spell. They have special abilities they can use several times a day to keep them in the fight. No more casting Magic Missile and hiding behind the meat shield. Now you can hurt things for several rounds.
Where Pathfinder really excels is the world of Golarion, the setting for the game. Golarion is rich, detailed, multifaceted, and fascinating. While I have personally grown weary of running Dungeons & Dragons, Golarion is a place that might change my mind. There are stories to be told EVERYWHERE.
