This is an RPG that doesn't actually interest me much, since it's a fantasy / dungeon crawl thing, but looks to be a reasonable package - not the best I've seen offered from this source, but reasonable.
"Castles & Crusades is basically a top-notch homebrew D&D variant writ large. The aesthetic here is 1st Ed. AD&D, with the simplicity of Basic-era D&D. All the basic classes you know from any form of D&D are here. Playing C&C is extremely easy, especially for players with any experience with D&D. You gain XP in the same way, level up in the same way, engage in combat in the same way, and more. Its combat conjures an exciting old-school feel without THAC0, negative Armor Class, or weird saves. A unified mechanic makes play fast and simple. You can pick up pretty much any AD&D 1e module or setting from TSR and use it pretty much as written, changing AC on the fly and experiencing old-guard adventures with a modern system.

As usual I have to point out my bias - I can download this stuff free if I want it. In this case I don't, but it looks like an OK deal, if not the best ever. I think it's reasonable value for money, but as usual YMMV.
