Presentation : 100%
Amiga coverage : 100%
PC coverage : 100%
Nods to Zzap! and Crash mags : 98%
16-page RARE feature : 85% (15 is fine, 16 pages is a bit gratuitous)
No feature headlining TRS-80 model III as worst gaming machine of all time : 10%

Overall : 95%

SIZZLER!

Get in there ! Looking forward to getting my copy

A Xmas style cover ! Similar to the old days of Crash/Zzap, looks like an Olli Frey ?

Result ! Thanks Darran, i'm just happy with the cover to be honest ;)

(Does look to be a lot of great stuff in there)

Looks absolutely brilliant and -for me, at least- this might end up being the best issue of 2010.

Especially love the PC, Amiga, RARE and Adventure coverage. The only thing that would make for an even better issue would be the inclusion of another text-adventure making-of. You know, just like the excellent Leather Goddesses of Phobos feature.

I loved Darran winding people up about the cover when he knew all along they were doing a Christmas themed one all along :D

Looks an ace issue. Really looking forward to the adventures article and the Rare one. That Untouchables big screenie looks brilliant, more speccy blow up screens please!

Couldn't agree more on that. It does look beautiful.

It looks like a great issue - especially that article about Virgin Games! ;-)

That looks great!

Lots of things I'm interested in, and that cover was one of my favourite Zzap covers.

Darran, that's world class. Thanks very much indeed!

I'll look forward to getting it and then I'm going to read it with a blanket over my knee in front of the fire and remembergaming Christmasses of yesteryear.

God bless us, everyone! :)

Got mine delivered this morning.

Brilliant cover and lots of good content too.

Stunt Car Racer, Virgin Games, Greatest Adventure Games (not by LucasArts) all look excellent.
