As much as I love BG:DA - future classic? Really? Surely the original game on the PC is a better candidate?

Otherwise looks a solid issue - and -love the cover ! :D

When you read it I think Sam has justified it. When you think about it, it's one of the first good attempts to adapt a PC game to a console crowd and it still plays really well today. Far better than more recent games I've played.

+1

One of the most visually striking covers in the mag's history, imho. Great stuff! :D

Glad people like the cover. It was never a big-selling game, but it's certainly an iconic image. Everyone pretty much loved it from the moment we designed it.

When I saw that cover yesterday I thought it looked f*cking awful! I'm still undecided over it but I kind of think it's the worst one I've seen in the history of the mag and before everybody starts jumping on my back it isn't going to stop me enjoying the mag.

Another vote of 'Much Love' for the cover.It was 3D Monster Maze that got me into gaming (and conning my folks into buying me my 1st micro), so true to say it brings back my earliest gaming memories.Good shout....

I'd buy the mag for these 2 articles alone, certainly 2 of my top 10 favourite spectrum games.

Looking forward to it, though I've only just started reading that one with the Xmas cover, really really need some free time ASAP!
