I've bought the digital edition to use it during the play on Skype and it seems that it's lacking an interactive table of contents which makes it useless to me. This is not stated anywhere on the page so it's not obvious until you open the PDF you've bought. Consulting the Chaosium support, I've found that they do not plan to add this feature in the future. What's the point in a 300-page digital edition rulebook you cannot quickly browse through?

This is a review of the PDF download, not of the game Call of Cthulhu

I own multiple physical copies of this book, and I wanted to replace the low-quality PDF I've been using for digital purposes with a high-quality, company-supporting version.

This PDF version is clear and crisp, exactly what I was wanting in its purchase. However, it DOES NOT come with ANY bookmarks for chapters or tables or anything. If I'm paying this kind of money for a professional PDF release, I'm disappointed that it does not include the navigation features that make a digital book easy to page through. Since it is a protected, watermarked document, I cannot add the bookmarks myself, which severely impacts its functionality during sessions.

I do not recommend purchasing this PDF version of the rulebook. Instead, buy the physical copy -- if you're going to have to manually rifle through the pages of the book due to no navigation, might as well do it with a physical copy.

If you are sick of the fantasy setting for now, and want to try something different, this is it. This game perfectly captures the mood of HPL, exploring mortality and sanity in a way that other RPG's can't.

What more can be said about CoC? ONLY the GREATEST Horror RPG ever conceived, if not arguably the best overall RPG ever made. Do yourself a solid and purchase it.

Loved it! I liked the gameplay, the world, and the writing. I am not big on the combat, but thankfully combat in this system is not as much needed as D&D. I played only one game, and even tho I knew what was going to happen via reading everything from Lovecraft. I was still locked in fear more than once in the play through. Great game. Get it! The Great Cthulhu Demands It!!!

Call of Cthulhu is a brilliant and influential RPG, as almost any gamer ought to know, and it remains as playable and adaptable to different eras as ever. The interior layout is nice and mysteriously atmospheric, and the writing style appealing if you like academia and conciseness over flowery prose (which I do). The original short story is also included, which is worth noting - and some of the artwork is excellent.

There are some glaring editorial issues, however - one of the pages (a full page piece of art) is missing, the title fonts are askew towards then end of the book and the character sheets are the missing lines need to be functional. All of these aspects are correct in the extra pdf copy provided from the original book (and don't really affect the game or the writing in any way), but this copy is a bit faded and disjointed as those pdfs usually are. Could do with an editorial update, in short.
