Notable Stuff:

  • The letters this issue read like the comments section of YouTube, with writers lining up to lambaste other writers over their personal opinions involving game systems and the superiority of different platforms.
  • Ross drops a 6.0 rating on Phantasy Star IV. Bad day, bro?
  • It's Battle Frenzy, not 'Battel Frenzy' guys.
  • *sigh* And it's Generations Lost, not 'Generation Lost'. Seriously, did your proofreading staff all quit the week before publication?
  • Pitfall: The Mayan Adventure scores a 7.25 rating on both systems. Nice work programming an above-average game on both systems, developers!
  • We're confused. The mini-review for Panic! refers to it as witty, sure to turn heads, and a unique multimedia experience, yet the reviewers give it a 2?
