“I'm on the Game”

published 03/08/2004

ProGet all the latest info on the newest games

ConsA cynic would call the whole magazine an advert

What 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...

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...

“PC Gamer has to be the best”

published 15/05/2001

ProWell written articles with good presentation

ConsSome 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...

“Gaming Mags at their best”

published 05/10/2001

ProGreat reviews, Funny

ConsExpensive, 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...

Computer games. They're fun aren't they? You can plant your bum on a chair in front of a screen, and transport yourself away from this big bad world into....well, bigger and badder worlds. But you get to do something about it. You're the hero. What you do makes a difference. Fantastic. So, in a...

ConsBuying issues individually can be expensive

Whilst I do play quite a lot of games, I wouldn't really describe myself as a hard core gamer and ordinarily wouldn't read any gaming magazines, preferring instead just to look on websites if I want to read a review on a game. My boyfriend, on the other hand is an avid reader of PC Gamer and I...

ProNew screenshots

ConsThey're a bunch of sellouts

This magazine, in a word, blows. They are the epitome of a magazine that will say/do anything 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...

ConsIts 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.

ConsExpensive, no integrity, self-important

Imagine going down the pub and meeting a bloke, well-dressed, intellient and fairly entertaining. You hang around him for a while get to know him over the course of a few pints and consider him a likeable fellow. Thing is, as you soon find out, he too thinks highly of himself. So highly in fact...

ProGreat magazine with great reviews.

ConsDemo discs aren't always great.

I don't under stand why this isn't in the 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...
