An uncommon review of AD&D Unearthed Arcana

Not so uncommon, because it depends a lot on what magazine that article comes from.

Anyway, AD&D itself was already a dead born game thus it's not so strange for one of its supplements to be that awful.

Most 1e fans hold a similar opinion towards UA as this article. It rarely gets any love in the old school community.

I concur. I bought Unearthed Arcana as soon as it was published, as I did all AD&D books, but in every section of the rules it seemed nothing more than a kit to convert to Gygax's personal campaign. Or maybe his idealized campaign.

The only things in UA that saw play in my campaign were already published in other places.
