I had nearly an hour to kill the other night before my bus was due, so decided to go for a pint. Having read my usual papers already during the day and being the proud owner of a brand new PS1, I thought I’d get a games magazine to read during my wait. I flicked through one or two of the thick mags at anything from £2.50 to £5.00 but I only really wanted a cheap read, then I spotted Video Gamer. I say spotted, but to be honest this months issue has got a picture of a buxom lady in a white bikini top and so sort of jumped out at me. Priced at 99 pence, and with just over 100 pages, it was an ideal buy. I settled down with my pint of Guinness Extra Cold and ... Read the complete review

So, another new video games magazine joins the shelves. Given the amount of titles already available, a new title will have to offer something a bit special in order to survive the wild, wild world of computer journalism.... and luckily for Video Gamer it shows a lot of promise. The first thing that will strike you about the magazine is the price - when most of the other magazines are charging at least three quid for the privilege, VG comes in at a lowly 99p. Every month. Yes, I typed that correctly. To allow for this, you'll find that the magazine is printed on lower-quality, less 'glossy' paper than the other gaming monthlies, but this ... Read the complete review

Video Gamer. I personally love reading this magazine. YOU WILL NOT believe the price of it! its only 99p! can you believe that??? if it was £3 I'd still buy it. I like the way its been written and the manner it is composed in. The layout of the magazine is simple and easy to follow. The news section is good and alays up to date and I find its been a great source for news and drooling of what games are to be^_^. The reviews are good. They only reviews games which are going to be available at the time the magazing is in circulation which I think its a great idea, then the reader and just go out and buy the game after the review and not be ...

Well, it may seem a bit pointless opinionating on this now that the magazine's closed, but after the other three reviews ... Good riddance say I. It was a dreadful magazine, which lasted for four issues before everyone else realised how bad it was. It had no idea what sort of audience it was aiming at - "jargon busters" tried to explain technical terms in plain language, but often were more confusing than helpful; they dared to say the Playstation had bad games, thus alienating three quarters of their audience (despite it being true); it was sheap but didn't even manage to be cheerful. It's redeeming feature was that it was only ... Read the complete review
