*** The following review was written in September 2000. I have left the review untouched but have placed an update at the end to cover any changes since it was written. *** If you're a regular computer games player then you are probably already aware of the vast number of magazines available to cover them. Although I have a PC as well, most of my games are for the Sony Playstation and over the years I have read most of the dedicated Playstation magazines. Unfortunately most of them seem to be aimed at the younger Playstation users and tend to be a bit on the patronising side. I'm almost 30 and love playing computer games now as ...

I am always quite skeptical about official videogame magazines, as the question always arises; what's in it for them to be impartial? People are always going to buy the official mags, but if they're affiliated with Sony, why would they be honest about a bad game. Particularly notable is the Driv3r incident, where they, along with several other gaming publications, were paid to give the game a positive review despite it playing like a piece of crap! The magazine is at least quite comprehensive, covering not only the PS3, but the PSP also and virtually any sort of hardware of software associated with Sony. Each issue is normally in a glossy cover, which includes ... Read the complete review

Way back in November 1995, a new magazine was launched alongside a new console. July 2003, next month, that same magazine will be printing it's 100th issue, covering all things concerned with the most succesful game system in history. PlayStation and 'The Official UK PlayStation Magazine' (OPM) have pretty much gone hand-in-hand over the last few years as support for PlayStation software elsewhere has all but evaporated completely. Like the PlayStation, OPM have had their ups and downs, but have pulled through against all the odds when many thought they would be gone by their 80th issue. The first issue of the magazine that I got hold of was #37 - ... Read the complete review

Since I got my Playstation in the Christmas of 1998, I have been buying the Official UK Playstation Magazine (OPM). I actually brought my first issue in February 1999, which was issue number 42. It came with a demo disc packed with 22 playable demos. About 12 of them were fore net yaroze, which I do not have, a clue what it is but they were still good games. Some of them were actual full games but they were like the old retro games really, however they were still fun to play. Every month after that it came with 1 or 2 net yaroze games but in the summer it stopped putting them on the demo disc and I don’t know why. Since then, I have collected every issue ...

I only got a PS in June, it was a bargain as I bought it 2nd hand off a mate. Since then, I have purchased a total of 7 games, all of which are excellent and have provided me with many hours of entertainment. I have only purchased this magazine once (August issue) and it was great. Despite the reviews being perhaps a little biased, (it IS the official mag after all!), the are on the whole well written, with lots of screenshots, and very informative about the game. There are lots of previews, the latest news, tips, letters etc. One other great feature of the mag is that every month, the reviews of all 600+ PS games ever made are summarised at the back of ...
