A Blast at The Past

So, today, RPGnet has posted a review of the first edition AD&D Dungeon Master's Guide.

I know a lot of people swear by "Uncle Gary," but a few months back, I picked this thing up (to do something other than look up a magic item) for the first time in a long while. I was astounded at the apparent incoherency and the competitive DM vs. Player mentality that permeated the entirety of the book.

I suspect there is a lot of value in the thing, but it is too painful for me to find it.

In any case, the review rates it:

Style: 1 (Unintelligible)
Substance: 2 (Sparse)

...and, strangely enough, the reviewer has yet to be seriously flamed for it in the comments.
