I'm on the Game

AdvantagesGet all the latest info on the newest games

DisadvantagesA cynic would call the whole magazine an advert

"...is the point of a PC games magazine, it all depends on your point of view. If you are fanatical about games and have to know all the information on a new game as soon as it is available then this is the place to find it. Looking at it from the opposite perspective then it could be seen as a blatant helping hand to the games industry to shift as many copies of their games as possible. For most of us though who fall somewhere in the middle, having a ..." Read review

I'm game

Advantageswell written, informative, packed with goodies

Disadvantagesmay be a little expensive, mostly for experienced gamers

"...need to know. In steps PC Gamer. PCG is, in my view, simply the best gaming mag you could ask for. Its packed to the brim with information, and I don't think there's a month that's gone by that I haven't wanted to buy it. I must say that I did used to buy pretty much all of the PC games magazines that came out every month...until of course, I realised I was wasting my money when I only really needed to buy one. To give you an idea of exactly ..." Read review

PC Gamer has to be the best

AdvantagesWell written articles with good presentation

DisadvantagesSome articles seem opinionated

"PC Gamer has to be the cream of the crop when it comes to PC gaming magazines. It consistently delivers up to the minute reviews and its In Development section I find particularly useful as it enables me to decide what to spend my hard earned pennies on. There are several core units to this magazine which I will break down into a descending list of favour: First Look As mentioned above one of my main reasons for buying this magazine is to ..."

The Best Gaming Magazine Out There

Advantagessee review

Disadvantagessee review

"By its own admission, PC Gamer is Britain’s best selling PC games magazine and its easy to see why. At £4.99 it may seem a little expensive, but there are always 1 or 2 Cds on the front cover which are packed with the latest game demos as well as being plenty of reviews and useful information inside which makes it worthy of the price when compared to some of its less worthy competition. The magazine is split up into 6 main sections, those of ..." Read review

Gaming Mags at their best

AdvantagesGreat reviews, Funny

DisadvantagesExpensive, Small hardware section

"PC Gamer is my favourite magazine. It is monthly and costs £4.99, which is a lot for a magazine, but I think it is big with lots of reading time. It is very informative with lengthy reviews of up to 6 pages for good games. It normally has about 30 pages of reviews with about 20 games reviewed in each issue. It also has a budget re-releases pages with short 1-column reviews for games recently put at budget prices. It has a ‘Scoop!’ section that ..." Read review

The must have gamer mag!

AdvantagesSubscription saves you a small fortune, free disc with every issue!

DisadvantagesBuying issues individually can be expensive

"...is an avid reader of PC Gamer and I recently treated him to a years subscription of the monthly magazine which at a cost of £52 works out at about £4 an issue, I believe you are saving almost £2 off every copy. My boyfriend also received his copy 2 days before they were in the shops, so he was very pleased with this! You get a free disc with every issue and this is usually packed with free demos of the latest games, free mods for some of the more ..." Read review

Biggest Sellout Mag On The Planet

AdvantagesNew screenshots

DisadvantagesThey're a bunch of sellouts

"...for cash. ("SELL OUT! With PC Gamer To-day!") When Outpost first came out, these guys gave it a sterling review, an Editor's Choice, I believe, yet 3 years later, when PC Gamer makes its list of the 10 Worst Games of all time, it makes the list?! Please. Can you say, "They got paid?" I knew you could. This magazine basically reads like a big advertisment. The writers cannot be trusted, and for that fact alone, this magazine is essentially worthless. ..." Read review

PC Gamer Best Mag Ever

AdvantagesCover CD, reviews, previews

DisadvantagesNone

"PC Gamer is Britians best selling PC Games magazine (well thats what they say) and I'm not surprised why it's the best selling mag because IT'S GREAT! Each month you get a great mag with 2 CD's full of the latest game demos and patches. Which is worth the £4.99 alone! The mag it's self is always split into 6 main sections with these being First Look, Previews, Regulars, Hardware, Tips and the Months reviews. The first look section has ..." Read review

"Pc Gamer to be fair is a very high quality gaming magazine. There is around 180 pages in each issue (13 per year), features include previews of new games, updates on the development of others and of course reviews of games.

PC Gamer

AdvantagesHigh quality reviews, large demo disc and good design.

DisadvantagesIts a tad expensive

"I have read PC Gamer almost every month for the past few years and i have to say that it is one of the best PC gaming magazines out there, if not THE best. The magazine gives balanced opinions on all the latest games and games related stories, however with increased internet access it is just as easy to read new information online as it is released. However i prefer to still buy the magazine due to its high quality and its range of demo's/files on ..." Read review

Grrrrreat!

AdvantagesGreat magazine with great reviews.

DisadvantagesDemo discs aren't always great.

"...magazine section anyway? Ah well. PC Gamer is by far the best magazine you can get for games on the PC. Simple as that. The reviews are great and good fun to read, with some of the finest reviewers that ever graced the surface of Earth working for them. The humour is wonderful, and reading the magazine seems almost like a soap opera to see what everyone has been up to or to refer to things that have happened in previous magazines. The letters are ..." Read review

We love us

AdvantagesQuality look and feel, consistent

DisadvantagesExpensive, no integrity, self-important

"...a lifelong friend. Well that's PC Gamer; consistently good in all departments, but so dependent on selling it's soul to get exclusive previews, reviews and demos that half of what's inside is untrustworthy. Compare that with the comparatively scruffy, but far more likeable PC Zone and you'll soon discover that personality wins every time. ..." Read review

A good exuberhant magazine

AdvantagesA very good magazine

DisadvantagesTries to be a little to funny and then becomes nauseating!!!

"...than my other favourite magazine, PC Gaming Wolrd, has in even their special editions. I like the reviews and the previews that they also have inside their magazines. The ideas in each issue are good and the literature is good even though this is were my anooyance comes into the opinion. The thing that I didn't like about the magazine is the fact that they try and make their reviews too funny ansd they miss out on some of the contextual data. Maybe ..." Read review
