    Re: Computer game magazine scans.

    Mean Machines would often review import games, sometimes many months before they got a release in the PAL region. I haven't read enough of Nintendo Magazine System to know if they kept on reviewing...

    Re: Computer game magazine scans.

    Looking at this catalogue page and the Super 16 Bit. Get a wee chuckle at the useless stuff for consoles people used to make (and probably still do) that is pretty much useless. I really can't see...

    Re: Computer game magazine scans.

    Age doesn't matter because the 16bits still hold up today. The Playstation looks terrible because it had 3D graphics forced upon it that it wasn't really capable of running. It wasn't until the N64...

    Re: Computer game magazine scans.

    Looking at those reviews of the old Playstation games I can't help thinking that the system has aged terribly. Sometimes it's like going back to an Atari when you compare it to what we have today....

    I didn't own a NES until 1999 when a crazy friend sold me his boxed Mario 3 pack for 6. But for Christmas 1990 I got a Master System then 2 weeks later in the January sales my older sister's...

    Re: Computer game magazine scans.

    Never played Rayman but the other 2 were a bit boring. What's worse than Sonic? A Sonic knock-off. I remember Zool was advertised as the Amiga's answer to Sonic. LOL, it didn't even come close.

    Re: Computer game magazine scans.

    As a huge fan of 2D platformers I could never understand how the Sonics on the MD were so popular. The blue rat always annoyed me with his forced cool and stupid conjoined eye. A fat plumber might...

    Re: Computer game magazine scans.

    I've always found the Mega Drive Sonic games to be rather boring. That magazine page above showing all the levels from Sonic 1 all look the same, there is very little variety. Alex Kidd in Miracle...

    Re: Computer game magazine scans.

    It is always a good idea to try before you buy but I honestly expected a 92% rated game to be decent, Bart's Nightmare was a huge disappointment. Took me a month to save for it as well because I was...

    Re: Computer game magazine scans.

    Some of the Mean Machines reviewers like Jaz and Rad ended up writing reviews for both Mean Machines Sega and Nintendo Magazine System. Terrible name for a Nintendo Mag. They ended up doubling their...

    Re: Computer game magazine scans.

    Remember how in Super Mario 1 if you had fire power and got hit by an enemy you would instantly shrink down to little Mario? In the Japanese Mario 3 the same thing happens when you have any of the...

    Re: Computer game magazine scans.

    Yeah, I still have about 20 of the original 24 Mean Machines magazines and in issue 24 in Jazza's Editorial he mentions "something wonderful is about to happen" which was lies. Nothing wonderful...

    Re: Computer game magazine scans.

    The worst thing Mean Machines ever done was split into two separate magazines. Neither of the 2 new magazines retained the style of the original and it punished people like me who had both Sega and...
