In a nutshell, the system is very old school in play and feel. A few points below about the game.
Character generation is 3d6 dice down the stats (strength, agility, stamina, etc.), down the column no adjustments.
Character classes/races are old school, either a fighter, wizard, elf, cleric, dwarf, etc., i.e. a elf is a hybrid wizard/warrior, while the dwarf is a focused fighter.
The character funnel system is quite interesting and works excellent in application.
Spells are Vancian system, but very old school, the system follows the original author design much closer than TSR did with their version of Vancian. DCC Vancian versions includes potential for excellent results, no results, forgetting spells, and misfire (love it), and corruption. All spells have rather extensive tables for results.
Magic items are special and rare, and so rather rules light.
Monsters have some tables for generation, but the listing is rather light, good for starters. Maybe down the road they will add additional monster books.
I DM primarily, and I have to say that overall I have loved running Goodman Games DCC system. Once you get the rules down, it runs quick. It is designed to be grim and gritty, and character deaths come fast and quick, so players will have to get used to the old day of TSR's chainmail-2nd edition where character died much more often and were not raiseable until 8th level (unlike 3.0/3.5).
