The MS article was immensely more interesting for me, but I had an idea that Phil South was more involved in some of the games? (Either thieves or Jinxter.)
The very definition of you win some, you lose some :)

See this is why I love te feedback thread. For every three people who love an article, you'll find one that can't stand it (and vice versa). It's always interesting to hear why people like/dislike your articles, even if you don't agree with them.

He was definitely involved in Fish, not certain on the others.

Bargain. Underworld's a very underrated game - I loved it. And Tomb Raider Anniversary is even better :)

I've FINALLY got round to finishing the mag yesterday.

A great read this month, perhaps one of the best "all rounder" issues yet. Lovely wide range of interesting articles.

Although the Adventure bosses "interview" didn't really work I wasn't that bothered by it. On the other hand I have to agree with the comments about the Karl "global brand director" Stewart interview. Having read pretty much every issue of RG from the Live era I can say without fear of contradiction that that was the worst article ever published. I actually had to read it in about 3 or 4 stages & had force myself to finish it & I've never done that with ANY articles in RG before.

I know it was only a couple of pages long but I honestly thought I was playing some weird version of marketing/management bullsh*t bingo.

Sorry for the rant, the rest of the mag I loved. I enjoyed the Rock Star Ate My Hamster & Thunderforce 3 articles immensely. The Tomb Raider & Shenmue articles were great reads even though I've no real interest in either franchise.

I also enjoyed reading the Atari 7800 feature very much & you could tell the writer had a great love for the subject, however I'd have liked more of a focus on the games (I know it was a hardware feature, but I'm just giving my personal preference!)

The real surprise for me was the Magnetic Scrolls piece. I can't stand text based adventures but that was a lovely article to read.

Thanks keep up the good work onwards to the Rainbow issue......
