    I'm not sure what Anonymous of May 26, 2013 is talking about. This book is indeed a reprint of the second version of the 2nd Edition Advanced Dungeons and Dragons Players Handbook. In my opinion, the format and layout of the second version of the book (the "black cover" with the axe-wielding hero breaking through a wooden door) is an improvement over the format and layout of the original version of the 2nd edition PHB (the cover of the original 2nd Ed PHB showed two riders on horseback, the first wearing a winged helm and swinging a sword). For a reprint, the main negative factor is, as others have pointed out, that the grey-scale artwork is not as nice as in the original prints. This is because the printing of the entire book was "enhanced" or darkened to make the print stand out. Sadly, the unwelcomed side effect of doing so is that there aren't as many shades of grey in the artwork, so much of the details of some of the artwork is lost to patches of blackness. Other than that, I find this reprint to be a fair replica of the original and, therefore, is just as useful.

    Definitely not what I was expecting. This was advertised as a "reprint of the classic rulebook". The contents are totally different from the "classic rulebook", and the art work is horrible. You'd be better off buying a used edition of the original rulebook. Definitely taking this back for a refund.
