(The following is loosely based on this issue's table of contents. (Notes) and bullet lists are added for clarity.)

(Die Hard Game Fan (aka Game Fan) is notable for featuring significant import game coverage. Many of these imports would never see a domestic release or were altered (in regards to content, game title, etc) before release. This is nothing unusual, but DHGF would often omit pertinent game coverage details such as the game's platform, region, or even a game's title, making the import/domestic status of a game sometimes difficult to identify. This problem is improved in later issues. Inferred information (?) is noted, unknown information is common - you have been warned.)
