    4-0 out of 5 stars One of the Best
    This magazine is going to be really great once it gets more established. It seems some people have had problems with their subscriptions...I get mine at the store, so I cannot comment on that.I do know that ALL IN now has increased sales a lot in the past year, so they may be behind.As far as the magazine itself, the articles are very interesting and it appeals to those who want to read about the stars of poker.They did a thorough coverage of NBC's heads-up championship, without giving anything away. Every player was profiled, all 64 of them.It was awsome. BLUFF magazine, on the other hand, told who won the rounds and gave away the winner a month before it aired..I think that sucks. I later found that they were trying to kill the ratings for the NBC show because it had been sponsored in part by All in magazine.I will not buy another BLUFF again for that reason...also, they are not even close to being as good as ALL IN.
    The only competition would be Card Player. Card Player is the best and if you want more serious poker talk, Card Player may be your magazine. With regular articles by Hellmuth and Negreanu...among others, it is the cream of the crop. For me, I enjoy reading about the stars of poker and the upcoming events, etc.In the last ALL IN, Antonio Esfandiari wrote an article about his nights at the club and the hotties they met. Phil Gordon wrote about his tournament with Michael Jordan.
    If you want fun and light poker reading, ALL In is the best.If you want strategic poker articles written by poker stars and complete tournament coverage, Card Player is your magazine.Bluff is a waste of money. I would only read BLUFF if someone gave it to me. Poker magazines only started hitting newstands in the last few years. Magazines like Card Player and ALL IN will get better and begin to restructure themselves to appeal to the general public. ALL IN is one of the magaines leading the way in presenting the poker world in an entetaining way.
    Hope this helped some of you.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Five months waiting, and still counting...
    I ordered two subscriptions to All In Magazine (one for myself and one for a friend) around Christmas, 2004.It has now been five months and we are still waiting.When I called Amazon subscriptions about it in February or March, they said my subscriptions were due to begin with the April issue or the nearest upcoming issue thereafter (since it is only published every other month).It is now late May and I feel I should have received something.Given the recent TV advertisements, I suggest ordering it directly from the number given on those (or not at all) because I have lost faith in the subscription service Amazon is using.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Months after I order... Still no mag.
    It has been several months now and still no mag.Guess they spent all our money on advertising.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Flawed, but still the best
    Compared to the other gamming magazines I've read, (GamePro, OPM, PSM etcetera) EGM is the best, and it's especially better than those stupid "adult game mags" that try to look like Maxim magazine and FHM. When it comes to coverage of the videogame industry and magazine appearance EGM excels, however I think that they are a little inconsistent when it comes to the amount of time they put into the reviews of some games. What I mean is, it seems to me that really hyped games like say Grand Theft Auto get way more coverage and playing time put into them, where as other less talked about games get about three inches of review space-and some times a bad review. This problem isn't as bad in EGM as it is in other gamming mags (cough-GamePro-cough) but it is still at a level where it becomes unfair to those games that come from companies with less money than Rock Star or Square. Overall though, I think that the review system as well as the rest of the magazine is still top notch. I would also like to give props to EGM for their sense of humor, no other gamming mag is as funny as EGM, four stars!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Best gaming magazine out there!
    EGM is a wonderful magazine. They have great news stories, informative special features every month, a nice format for previews, cheat codes, and the reader feedback section, and HUGE contests (most recently, the massive console giveaway for their holiday contest). They also have the best review system of all the gaming magazines (well, maybe except for PC Gamer). Instead of just one biased five-star score or a bunch of ridiculous faces (coughGAMEPROcough), three different reviewers rate the game from 1-10 (in .5 increments). This gives you a well-rounded opinion on the game. And best of all, unlike the recently canned Next Generation (good riddance), EGM is (for the most part) unbiased. They don't automatically rave about Metal Gear Solid 2 as being the best game ever long before it's released, nor do they completely ignore Nintendo (NextGen refused to even review Pokemon games or most N64 games, and they had zero Game Boy coverage). Though they've made some hair-brained decisions, (like saying Xbox was better than Gamecube, which, as most serious gamers know by now, is not true), remember that nobody's perfect, and that their overall quality makes up for occasionally questionable decisions. If you own more than 1 current gaming console (and even if you only have 1), this is the magazine for you.

    2-0 out of 5 stars About as credible as a Saddam loyalist
    EGM has about the average amount of content as any mag or site for videogames but it mixes it with it's sense of humor (that really depends on if you like geek humor) but worst of all it's biased biased opinions. EGM will trash great games or not give them enough credit, especially Gamecube (if you own a gamecube do not even look upon this magazine). It praises games like Madden and Need For Speed (I don't know why) and gives some reviews that seem completely bogus. They are a propaganda machine that will always take PS2 above others and care very little about what the reader is looking for. They are unsympathetic to the different types of gamers that don't care for sports games and like a good RPG. If EGM are the Nazis ( and trust me they are) Nintendo is the Jew and Sony is the aryan race. The only way to say it is they are not credible and are blind to what other people want (since a critic is to help a reader choose and not to force their views upon them) the people calling it the best are either reading an older copy or agree with them because that is how they feel too and not because they are right.

    2-0 out of 5 stars About as credible as a Saddam loyalist
    I have heard that EGM used to be a good magazine, but I don't think it is. I got a free subsciption to this magazine and found it is inconsistient and is completely biased. What they hold against one game will magically become irrelivant for another. A 9 rated game can easily be worse than a 7 rated game because the reviewers are so opinonated and have no intrest in fairness or benefitting the readers. They will make pointless comparisons and take off big points for trivial things. They reviewed Tales of Symphonia, a 80 hour game, 2 weeks before it came out. They have definite vendettas and lack credibility. They are a magazine for the gamers that will buy every football game and racing game on the market and pass up great RPGs like Tales of Symphonia. Their reviews have zero credibility so I would not recommend making a buying decision based on what those gaming Nazis have to say. Previews have good information and they are good about not spoiling games (but you can't spoil a game with no story like Madden which they love and they don't spend enough time with good games to even know enough to spoil). If you can deal with their no facts opinions or agree with their silly viewpoints this is a mag for you. EGM has good information but presents it like Nazi propaganda. I can't stomach it.

    5-0 out of 5 stars On second thought...
    They're not as bad as I said they were. Really, the only problems I have is the ink (which I said last time) and that's about it. The new format has grown on me, and I dont really have much problem with the reviews section. I actually like the 3 reviewers now taking full hold. The staff page in the front is always funny, and the letters are too. They have one of the best in terms of an EIC and even though his column seems to be shorter than it used to be in the old format, it's still great. Yes I cant complain, about what some have said about there being too much red ink, but say what u want, white text on red, makes it very easy to read and red on white is easy to read too, along with white on black and vice versa. I love the comic they have in the back of the mag, called Hsu and Chan, and Hsu probably has something to do with the EIc, cause his last name is Hsu. They have pretty good articles in Press Start sometimes. And I can truly say that this one of the game magazines that I really like when it gets here each month. I've never read Seanbaby's reviews. Only his column. Same with their tips and tricks editor. And their rumor mill guy, Quartermann, is cool too. Both the page of rumors and his columns. Well, as always, all I can say is to go buy a copy, but you will probably want to subscribe, cause then you wont have to deal with the bags on the issues and all the other junk inside the bag. ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars GAMES is a GREAT GIFT
    I have been teaching academically gifted students for the past 25 years and GAMES magazine has been a part of my curriculum for awhile. It is never out of date and the crytograms and puzzles are wonderful for left brain / right brain thinking.

    GAMES magazine teaches kids to focus and become absorbed in the thinking process. These are learning characteristics which are surprisingly scarce these days, even in very bright students.

    GAMES magazine is also balanced between mental gymnastics and humor - it is fun to find the fake ad and enter the contests. It is the only magazine I have ever read in which I even like to read the ads!

    It is a thumbs up publication!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great magazine for puzzle-lovers!
    I've been a fan of GAMES magazine for many years! My favorite section is "Pencilwise" which is crosswords, logic puzzles, word games, and other puzzles. The puzzles come in different levels, with some puzzles geared for kids, some for beginners, and some that are very difficult.

    My only complaint is that the magazine is only published 10 times a year.

    If you like GAMES, try GAMES World of Puzzles Magazine!

    5-0 out of 5 stars The best puzzle magazine ever

    5-0 out of 5 stars The Ideal Magazine for Gamers
    If you like board games, word games, logic games, video games--any games--this is the magazine for you. A typical issue of Games magazine contains interesting articles on a variety of subjects--from hobbies like card tricks to online gaming communities; unique and colorful puzzles; and "ordinary" puzzles put together with a twist.

    From crosswords to crostics to word finds to logic puzzles and teasers, whatever tips your hat, you will likely find it here. In addition, they print a number of Conceptis Paint by Number puzzles in each edition, a type of language-independent picture-forming logic puzzle that is a growing trend: each numbered puzzle turns into a pixel picture when completed.

    Even the advertisements in this magazine are interesting. While you are hunting for the fictional ad, you will come across tournaments, board games, and websites that you would never have heard about anywhere else.

    This magazine is highly recommended for most any age and type of puzzler. I've been receiving it for years and have never been disappointed.

    Side Note: If you find a mistake or a unique answer to a puzzle, Games Magazine will send the first such finder a finder's fee: a Games Magazine t-shirt. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars lost shippments
    Hi,
    this is not review, it's more question for Customer Support Service. I send you check for subscription for next year in April. My check #077 was dated April,23,2003 and it was cashed in May 2003, but I never got new numbers.If you had time to cash my check I would think that is not unrealistic to expect to get in mail my subscribed numers of Magic Chrochet which would be for months of August and October, I think that I got June's number (because my subscribtion was expiring in June). I hope this is going to be solved very soon. I hope it's just a mistake of someone in shipping and that very soon I will enjoy my paid new numbers. I really enjoy doing staff from Magazine, it is easy to follow paterns and over a couple years that I am subscribed to magazine I have made quite a few very nice pieces, as well as ones that I gave away as a gifts.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Old issue
    Hi,I am looking for Dec 89 #63 of the magic crochet magazine. If anyone has one and would like to sell it. Please email me at uds48@ comcast.net.
    The problem I had w/ the magazine was that i would get double issues. So I stoped ordering them.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Consider Myself Warned
    I ran across some old issues of this magazine and was quite impressed. Thought I would subscribe if it was still available. After reading so many laments about the subscription service, have decided I don't need the headache. Too bad, a really nice magazine and no local availability. Just wondering......IS ANYBODY LISTENING?????

    1-0 out of 5 stars Thanks for the Warnings!
    From the reviews I've read here, it seems that the publishers really screw up with subscriptions. Thanks for the warnings - if I want a copy, I'll purchase it at a crafts store instead of subscribing. Thanks to all who arote about problems with subscriptions, you helped make up my mind about ordering.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Love the Magazine, Hate the Subscription Service
    I have been subscribing to Magic Crochet for many years. I have the 1st issue up to #132 and a few more out of sequence after 132. The subscription service is horrible. They bill for magazines already paid for. You can send copies of your check, it's never aknowledged. They just keep sending more bills. Before you get a magazine or two, they are billing you again. I sent a check Nov 2003 and have yet to get the mag. It's now Mar 2004. How do we get their attention? They have no website or email address that I can find. Any requests to them are on deaf ears. What's wrong with these people? With such a great mag, why won't they provide better service and accounting? Guess I will have to resort to purchasing used mags. I've lived here for 20 years so it can't be that. HELP US CONTACT THEM.

    5-0 out of 5 stars The best magazine out there
    Simply put, Game Informer is one of the most entertaining, most well written, most fun to read magazines out there. Heck, for me at least, Game Informer beats out magazine greats such as time for sheer entertainment value.

    the magazine is written in a very easy to read format. Each month the lovable staff excercises thier ablility to write hilarious subtitles on picutures (They love fart jokes), write histarical reviews on bad games, such as, "I would rather burn in the fires of Mt. Doom then play this game" (LOTR: The Fellowship of the ring) "I cried with joy the moment Shreck was ejected from my X-Box, I then smashed it into a million pices with a hammer" (Shreck Party game for X-Box) and my personal favorite "I've seen better texturing in a pool of my own vomit! Evil has a new name and that name is Azurick. Burn foul Deamon, burn!" (Azurick: Rise of Plathenta) Every one of the staff members write very well written and entertaining reviews. Overall, Game Informer is your best choice for Video gaming.

    The good:
    Very well written
    Reviews are generally very reliable
    Fantastic sense of humor. Its great to see a magazine that dosent take itself too seriously.

    The bad:
    Nothing

    The ugly:
    The magazine only comes out once a month, hence 30 miserable days of waiting for the next issue.

    Summary: Any video game fan who loves big magazines and a great sense of humor cant go wrong with Game Informer

    4-0 out of 5 stars Lives up to its name
    I'm a fairly big gamer. I love reading the game magazines and websites to check up on things, but I haven't felt a lot of personality of what I've read. The articles show the sad truth that the writers have no life outside of video games. So, luckily, I was walking into Gamestop one day and subscribed to Game Informer. It's the elite, the best gaming magazine there is, and even people who don't like games may find it amusing. Unlike EGM, the staff members have great, dynamic personalities, and they know there's a life outside video vegetation. You'll get a kick out of their profiles. Not only are these guys (and one girl) funny, but their reviews are incredibly helpful. After reading a couple of good reviews, I was convinced to go out and play the games they recommended, and they were right. MVP Baseball 2003, Tiger Woods 2004, and ESPN NBA Basketball are all great titles, just like they said! The articles aren't only well-written, helpful, and informative but they're overflowing with numerous pop culture references. In a review of "Pitfall Harry", they said the title character looked like Brendan Fraser impersonating Keanu Reeves. This is just icing on the cake. They also have impeccable coverage of E3 and the Retro reviews are great. But one of the best things about GI is the hilarious ideas they have for future games. Just recently, they suggested a game that mixed Quintin Tarantino goodness with "DDR". Overall, GI is an excellent magazine flowing with personality and fascinating articles. It's the "SI" of gaming magazines.

    5-0 out of 5 stars The One And Only!! =-D
    This is the big one. If your a serious gamer,or just play for fun,it don't matter. This is the only magazine for you. It covers every thing from the all mighty XBOX to the gameboy advance. It tells you every thing you would want to know about that one game that you think you should buy, but aren't sure,or a game you want to buy but it doesn't come out for like 3 months. With hundreds of game reviews, previews, and it comes with a game calendar that tells you which games and even movies are coming out for that month. IT ROCKS. And no I'm not some guy who works for them tryin to sell it. It really rocks.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Some people who review GI are morons
    I'm not saying everyone has to love game informer. )i find it to be a good source of gaming information that helps me buy good games and avoid crap ones) but u can't just make stuff up like Kevin Brennan. Game informer has one main reviewer and then a "second opinion" section where a second person gives a short review of the game and a score. that would be more than one person per review. Also, i subscribe to electronic gaming monthly and the 3 reviewers often give the same rating. ur a moron kevin. anyone interested in gaming that has a good sense of humor should definatly get this magazine. it tells u what u need to know in a humorous and informative way so the magazine stays fun and intersting.

    2-0 out of 5 stars No, its not the best
    I dislike Game Informer for a couple of reasons.

    1. Information is almost always late. Like the Halo issue. Ummmm, yeah, I think thats been in multiple magazines and everywhere on the internet already.

    2. Reviewers have no idea what they're talking about and they try and make up for it by making stupid remarks that they think are funny.

    3. Only one reviewer for each game. Wow, im REALLY gonna listen to what one person says about his gaming experience. For all I know he had a broken thumb while he was playing so he sayed it was to hard to steer the car. Here's a tip, get more people so we have multiple opinions. Like Elecctronic Gaming Monthly for instance. They have three different reviewers for each game, and every person's rating is always different.

    Bottom line; Bad magazine but some articles are funny and informative. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars This is THE PC Gamer magazine
    If you're into PC gaming, not consoles, this is the magazine for you. It has reviews, previews and walk throughs of the latest PC games as well as hardware reviews and recommendations. You don't have to wade through endless pages about PS2 or X-Box games to find what you really want (like with other gaming magazines). This is PC gaming goodness at it's best.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Not As Great As They Think They Are
    PC Gamer has been my magazine of choice when it comes to reliable game reviews. For the most part, they're been on the money. Their writing is concise and full of humor.

    What drives me nuts is their arrogance. They definitely believe they're the best games magazine out there. There's nothing wrong with confidence, but it's the overconfidence and at many times, the tendency to dumb down the writing that is truly annoying...as are the constant Vederman jokes (He's the guy who writes their hardware column. His name and variations thereof are a tired, ongoing punchline). I'd also be happy with less pictures and more writing on the games. Screenshots do not mean as much to me as a comprehensive review does.

    Computer Games Magazine is a better choice if you're looking for more in-depth, intelligent writing about games. Maybe at 31, I'm just getting old, but it takes more to impress me than what PC Gamer offers.

    3-0 out of 5 stars it WAS good......
    i used to love this magazine, but people are right. the magazine is half the size it was, and the 10 year anniversary issue was the smallest issue yet. it's also behind the times - an E3 wrap-up in the AUGUST issue? E3 WAS IN MAY! the demo disk is useless - one demo per disk - they need to switch to dvd's or why pay extra when i can download demos? i'm done when my subscription runs out.

    5-0 out of 5 stars The Best PC gaming magazine out there
    I have been a subscriber to PC Gamer for several, I think six years, and I can honestly say this is the best PC gaming magazine I have ever read, and I have tried all that I have come accross. They have several features (special stories) every month, whereas the majority of magazines barely have anything other than the previews/reviews/strategies/occasional special story. I read through every issue almost cover-to-cover devouring it's witty writing and great personality. I have agreeded on their review for every game I have played, as well.

    This review is based on the subscription with CD, but the magazine is no different.

    2-0 out of 5 stars May be the best PC games magazine, but...
    that isn't necessarily saying much. I've been a subscriber for several years, but lately have been disappointed. The magazine is getting noticeably thinner - the content watered down. The writing is becoming hackneyed - they overuse terms like "gaming goodness" or call a game "pants" without offering more substantive commentary. The Scoops feature gives you an early look at games in beta testing - which can be interesting. Their cover story is usually weak, but hey they need to put something on the cover. The reviews are inconsistent. Too often the reviews and the scores are incongruous, and they don't tell you a thing about how they determine a score - is 88 really different from 92? A 100 point scoring system is silly. The hardware features are good, except their hardware guy Vederman has a pointless column, that would be okay if it was funny, but it never is. The other columns are also inconsistent: those on mods, simulations, war games are fine, but they need to get rid of 2 columnists Whitta and Desslock - these are recent (re)additions to their staff and they are both - how should I say it - pants. With worthwhile content down, and ads up, I'm considering not renewing. I wish there was an alternative. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Most traditional aquarium magazine.
    I've been reading TFH Mag. since I was a kid. At that time it used to show articles on reptiles, frogs, etc. Fortunantly it got even better when it became am exclusively aquarium fish Magazine again. Besides it's a complete magazine, it delivers international subscriptions, so I could have mine here in Brazil. It covers every aspect of fish care, aquarium maintance, new species, diseases, aquarium display, etc. It worths every dime you spend on it. The best thing is that you can keep old issues, as I do, because they are always useful. Go ahead, you wont regret.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A great read in every issue!
    I enjoy reading this magazine as it covers both saltwater and freshwater topics. The articles cater towards beginners as well as advanced hobbyists. The content is never boring. It covers a vast array of topics from fish health and diagnosis, compatibility and care to interesting tales of travel to different parts of the world where exotic freshwater and saltwater species are investigated in their natural environments. The color photography is fantasic and the writing is clear and easy to understand. Whether you are a beginner or expert, this is one magazine that will peak your interest with every issue. Enjoy!

    5-0 out of 5 stars TFH Magazine
    This has ALWAYS been my favorite in the fish info. industry. It has always been informative and interesting and has always included some interesting pictures. When I have had trouble finding information on certain fish TFH has been there to cover them. A truly valuable magazine for any serious fish hobbyist.

    4-0 out of 5 stars I read every issue cover to cover
    In past years, there were other good magazines in the hobby. During the last couple of years however, TFH has taken the crown as the best. I read every issue cover to cover.

    I receive two fish magazines, but if budget forced me to choose just one, this would be it.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Mag.
    This is a must get magazine. Most aquaic information is provided and it is worth every cent. The delivery of Tropical Fish Hobbyist is more than better. Unlike other companies, tfh mail it in with plastic wrapping to prevent any damage. I really recommend this magazine. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Really great for crochet beginners
    I've subscribed to Decorative Crochet magazine before and found it very helpful. I like the fact that there is a wide range of patterns for you to try, so you do not have to be an advanced crocheter to benefit as there are both beginners as well as intermediate patterns to try.

Somehow my personal info was leaked on the net and i've recieved several unwanted subscriptions. customer service was very helpful once i found the nember below. I don't know if it's a good magazine or not though since i don't crchet, and i never even opened any of the magazines.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Beware - Dangerous Crochet!
    I have no idea where this magazine came from. I received one issue and lots of 'you owe me money!' bills. I have been unable to cancel (read the rest of the reviews!) I gave the mag three stars because I think it was well written and the instructions would certainly be useful to an interested person. It is the distribution policy that is the problem! The best thing to happen about it all is the review after this one has a phone number to call! By the way, I don't crochet.

    1-0 out of 5 stars EXASPERATED -- FOUND THE NUMBER TO CALL
    Hi, after spending 3/4 of a day...many links on the website I have found the telephone number to call for Decorative Crochet to cancel your subscription, get your subscription, etc. As noted in reviews many of us have had problems. Call RealTime Publications Services, Inc. 203-792-4700-ask for Customer Service give account number etc. Don't forget to ask for a cancellation letter or confirmation letter, whichever serves your purpose. GOOD LUCK!

    5-0 out of 5 stars It's now the best PC games magazine.
    Well, imagine my surprise when I picked up the February 2004 issue, and found that things had drastically changed. Mainly in the Editor's letter. It used to be 1 page, now it's just a small little column now, that is exactly like other Ziff Davis game mags, Now the redesign isnt as bad as other ZD game mags, but the removal of the 1 page editor's letter, really steams me up. At least they didnt bother Executive Editor Robert Coffey's Scorched Earth column. It's still 1 page. It's on the last page usually. And yes the redesign is really bad in terms of readability. Most of the time they have a red or blue or yellow background, and it's really hard to read the text at times. Now at least their disc will auto-load, unlike PC Gamer. And what really pisses me off, is when a magazine has a Hot 100 section, or a best PC's or videocards, or peripherals section, and they hardly ever change the captions or descriptions come with it. I'm sorry if I got off track a lot, but I felt the need to. I hope this review helped you. EDIT: 5/8/2004 PC Gamer recently changed Editor's and the Editor-In-Chief was re-assigned to become the Editor-In-Chief of the Official Xbox Magazine. The new EIC of PCG is the former Executive Editor, and I hate him, so this is why I say CGW is now the best PC games magazine.

    4-0 out of 5 stars If you're only to get one, this is it
    Computer Gaming World has the best reviews going. Unlike most anywhere else I can think of, its reviewers insist on games ... and grade accordingly. Occasionally they even correct lapses of judgment, as in the spectacular re-rating of Black & White. That the magazine is also less youngster-orientated in the writing is a welcome bonus: the writers occasionally stray outside the ten thousand most common words in the language. Oh, the shock!

    Another nice feature is a print summary of predicted game release dates ... Every issue has a strategy section for one or more games. This content ranges from useless (occasionally it feels like someone copied down bits of the manual & on-screen unit descriptions) to very strong, with my favorite semi-regular feature being two guys playing head-to-head in all types of games (shooters, sims, rts, even the Sims[!]) with annotated turn by turn carping and analysis. Reminds me of The General magazine....

    The downsides are all the common ones: even this magazine occasionally feels a bit like a junior high school bus trip, the magazine is short and getting shorter, way too much time spent on previews (though many like this).

    1-0 out of 5 stars Amazon Magazine Subscription Services are lacking in SERVICE
    While the magazines are fine, the subscription services operate in the dark ages, which adds a middleman to the address change process. This caused errors in the delivery of my magazines and the company was unable (unwilling?) to send the missing issues.

    After you subscribe to the magazine you may wish to submit an address change. Neither subscription service company used by Amazon has an online process. You either send an email or make a phone call.

    In my case I sent an email to Magazine Express, Inc. and they erroneously changed the mailing address to the billing address which sent 3 months worth of magazines to the wrong address. After getting them to correct the mistake, they were unable to get Computer Gaming World to send the misdirected magazines to the correct address.

    If the magazine subscription services had an online process for address changes, this would eliminate the middleman and reduce errors.

    My future magazine purchases will be made through companies that offer a better online service.

    This is the best PC gaming magazine you'll find anywhere. It covers the lastest games and hardware. A bonus, the issue comes with a free demo disc every month. Although PC games are fading out of the picture, XBOX is a good way to keep them alive. This magazine covers everything you need to know. It's the best thing to do if you want the most out of your PC. A good choice to start with is this. Get this magazine, your won't regret it.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Great
    This is a very Enjoyable magazine. It provided important and useful concepts about the game of Poker. I learned new concepts, which identified some leaks in my game. Leaks in your game can come from anywhere!!! Leaks can originate from lack of aggression, overcalling raises, misreading opponents and any other number of ways. So this mag helps. Many people look at poker the wrong way. They think to win they need to do all of this super fancy plays and mindblowing stunts. Well folks...there are not that many options in poker...you fold, call or raise. So its really hard to do things that will just fool your opponents all the time. To win at poker it is mostly limiting your mistakes and getting all that you can from winning hands and minimizing losses on losing hands...that's it

    Ive been playing for about 5 years now and love the game. Ive read many poker books and found this one to be very good. So I would suggest you buy this book and maybe a couple others and get to playing. There's really no excuse anymore - since anyone can access the internet.

Plus all the archived issues back to March 30, 2001 (as of December 5, 2003). If you insist on getting the "paper" issues, you can still subscribe to the paper magazine at their website for less than what you'll get here.

    That said, the magazine/website itself is definately worth 5 stars. It is more complete that any other poker-oriented magazine or website that I've seen.

    5-0 out of 5 stars The only puzzle magazine worth buying
    I've bought many puzzle magazines in my day. Most of them are thick with pulpy low-quality paper that's hard to write on. They're jam-packed with dozens of boring crosswords and mind-numbing logic puzzles, and they try to cram as many puzzles of the same type onto each page. But there's not an ounce of creativity in the whole thing.

    I stopped buying these the first time I picked up GAMES World of Puzzles. They're not very thick, but the creativity and quality of each issue makes up for it.

    Each issue has quite a few "normal" crossword puzzles of varying difficulty (rated from 1 to 3 stars). In addition, there's always a large number of crossword variations, where you'll be entering the words in spirals, hexagons, long unbroken or twisting strings, or a dozen others. These require a little bit more logic than the average crossword.

    The cryptic crosswords provide the most challenge. If you've never tried one, well... let's just say it took me almost 6 years of doing them monthly before I finished one! They're that hard, but each clue you get right is extremely satisfying. I've seen cryptics elsewhere, but none as good as these.

    The crosswords are just the beginning. Each issue also has logic puzzles like the outstanding Paint-By-Numbers and Battleships; other classic puzzles like Double-Crostics, fill-ins and cryptograms; trademark puzzles such as the 500 Rummy word game and Pencil Pointers; and an 8- or 10-page special section of themed puzzles in the middle. Even the one or two word searches in each issue have themes, and usually some sort of twist to make them interesting.

    I recommend you subscribe to both GAMES World of Puzzles as well as GAMES magazine. With the latter, you'll get about a quarter of the number of puzzles you'd get in World of Puzzles, along with articles about games of all kinds (board games, video games, etc.) plus the standard magazine stuff like letters to the editor, contests, short briefs and game reviews.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Best Puzzle Magazine I've Seen
    World of Puzzles, from the editors of GAMES Magazine, is the best puzzle magazine I've seen. If you enjoy fresh and invigorating brain-twisting puzzles, World of Puzzles is the magazine for you. It outdistances even GAMES Magazine for people like me who are interested in the pencil puzzles. On the other hand, if you're also interested in board game reviews and interesting essays, perhaps GAMES Magazine would be better, as World of Puzzles is composed of nothing but pages and pages of fascinating and imaginative puzzles. Difficulties range from the simple crosswords, word searches, and cryptograms found in the first few pages to the mind-numbing puzzles in the back. The difficult ones are the most interesting: many are one-of-a-kind puzzles, unlike anything you've ever seen before. Word puzzles tend to be in the majority, but math and logic puzzles are also popular. In addition, nearly every month World of Puzzles runs a contest puzzle. Solve this puzzle and mail in your answer, and if you're correct, you have a shot at a thousand dollars!

    If you enjoy pencil puzzles, word games, math and logic, or even just crosswords and word searches, you should definitely give World of Puzzles a try. You won't regret your decision. ... Read more

    From Amazon.com

    "Like Maxim, but about Xbox!" was clearly the mandate given to Mike Salmon, former editor-in-chief of PC Accelerator and current editor-in-chief of The Official Xbox Magazine. He got it half right: this gamer lifestyle magazine has the locker-room feel of Maxim but lacks Maxim's intelligent, tongue-in-cheek style. The result is something that looks like it was written by high-school sophomores. For example, a bio of Kasumi, a character in the game Dead or Alive 3, reads "A redhead with a difference--she can take on all comers. And if DoA 3 has the "[breast] bounce on/off" option, she'll definitely have a lot of comers." On the plus side, the game reviews and previews are informative and mostly free of bull.--Mike Fehlauer ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars Uh, where's the disc? Pretty good magazine.
    It's a great magazine, with the disc. You get reviews, previews, world exclusive articles, and so much more. Then, you (would) get the disc. Ahhh...the demo disc. I'd pay about $20 a year just for it alone. But, this stupid thing doesn't come with it. I would have given it about 3.5 stars if I could, but I figured that the magazine saves it (almost). But, let's talk about the actual magazine. It has truthful opinions from reviewers with an attitude, who know their stuff. It tells you what games you need to buy, what ones you could buy, and what games to stay away from. Also, you get to preview games that haven't been released yet, and will be released some time in the future. Then, you read their articles, which are fun. Although some are more entertaining than others, they're still good. The layout of the magazine is good, and the witty jokes at the bottom of the page are interesting and sometimes hillarious. Except, here, there's no disc. The disc gives you great demos that I've played for HOURS before. If I were you, I would get the magazine somewhere else, WITH the disc.

    Grade:
    With Disc: A
    Without Disc: B (A low B)

    4-0 out of 5 stars Excellent magazine, but you'd be crazy not to get the disc
    I am a true gamer, owning all major consoles and not being a fanboy about any of them. That said, this is by far the best console-specific game magazine available.

    However, I can't see why anyone into gaming enough to get a game magazine wouldn't sport the extra($)for the Xbox magazine that comes WITH the demo discs. For an extra ($)/year you can demo a whole lot of games and it could pay for itself by saving you one bad purchase or turning you on to a good on you might not have otherwise considered. There's also video previews, some exclusive, which give you a good look at some anticipated titles.

    As for the magazine itself, the reviews are good and surprisingly fair for an affiliated magazine. There's lots of good content too. So, ask yourself: is ($) more worth it for 12 demo disks loaded with extras?

    2-0 out of 5 stars A good magazine.
    I have been a subscriber since the premier issue, and will continue to be a subscriber, because I feel it's the best XBox magazine their. Yet, at times I get bored with it's writing style. They don't make it that fun to read, sometimes its too silly to read, at other times it's written with too much depth, to where it bores you. Plus, it doesn't have any good features (special stories) in it, they are all stupid or boring, with the only good one being in the first issue (the one about the perfect XBox setup, and the XBox set-up quiz).

    Why two stars then? The reviews are actually well written, and are truthful, and I trust them. So, if all you want are interesting reviews, try this magazine, but if you want to know about other things without getting too bored, look elsewhere.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Lame!
    The first rule I learned in Journalism 101 (shortly before dropping the class) was "Always remain objective". At OXM, editors and writers alike check thier objectivity at the door.

    OXM is a nicely laid out magazine. Unfortunatley it's content is very weak. When I read a video game magazine I want it to first be informative. While OXM is "informative", it's the XBox "attitude" that gets in the way. The editorial and writing staff try so hard to be hip, cool and edgey that they come across as a joke. If you read in between the pot shots taken at Sony and the PS2 there is some relevant information. But it tends to get lost amidst the puns and attempts at being humorous.

    The second thing I want from a magazine, are objective opinions. With OXM, objectivity goes out the window. Though most games that are reviewed are pretty informative, often times a mediocre game will score significantly higher than in other game magazines. Which makes me wonder exactly who is writing these reviews. Also, every issue is loaded with countless digs at Sony and Nintendo. After the first few pages it becomes childish and unamusing.

    The saving grace of the magazine is the demo disc. On it you can get some downloads including bonus levels for some games. Unfortunatley it's not included here.

    Considering the content of this magazine, I'd recomend picking it up on an issue by issue basis depending on what is included in the demo disc. For a better all around objectively written game magazine, I'd recomend Game Informer. ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars Just barely falls short of leading the game mag pack
    As a die-hard advocate of the unofficial playstation magazine, I normally pass this by every month (no matter how hard it is to overlook the playable demo disks that my subscription to the unofficial PSM magazine doesn't offer). This month was different, as my urge to get my hands on a Splinter Cell demo was just too much to bear... Of course I read the magazine as well, especially having spent sooo much on it. It's one of the pricier game magazines out there (obviously because of the costs involved with the disks every month), so I don't get to read it too often.

    I was somewhat pleased with what I read, but they still have a little ways to go if they plan on converting me anytime soon. While I can hardly call it a bad read, it just doesn't have the "personality" I'm looking for in a game mag. Sure, the reviews are on the mark for the most part, but somewhat dry in the process. The staff seems talented enough, yet they appear to "hold back" somewhat in terms of letting a little bit of that personality to shine through in their work. This is where their competitors (at the unofficial PSM magazine) manage to surpass them.

    The reviews were plenty, and they made sure to include the newest games that were on everyone's mind (here they were right on the mark). They even included a section on new releases for the Playstation one, a step that my favorite magazine now has chosen to overlook for some strange reason (although they once included it). If there were really a specific weakness that I had to pinpoint when it comes to the Official Playstation Magazine, I would have to point with both hands at the first word in the title...Official.

    I can't help but think that being an "official" magazine under the watchful eye of Sony would mean nothing less than the fact that the folks writing the articles are at a disadvantage to their counterparts in terms of what they can and cannot print. While I would like to think that they are impartial for the most part (and they do appear to be for all intended purposes), I can't shake the thoughts that they have more incentive to praise games under the Sony label. The other end of this argument is equally compelling though... Can an unofficial magazine really hope to get the newest information before these guys do? It's a hard call at the moment.

    If you choose this magazine over the others, I cannot say you made a poor choice by any means... I'm just saying that I prefer the other. Either way, you are going to find what you are looking for (pages and pages of games galore). Can you really go wrong? If you really have the money to burn, I'd recommend them both. If you are limited in cash though, you would be wiser to pick up a subscription to the unofficial PSM.

    "alankelly"

    5-0 out of 5 stars A very solid Playstation magazine.
    Well, this is a really solid magazine. I'd say it's better than their competition, PSM, but they both have their strengths. They redesigned this magazine with the February 2003 issue, and it's pretty good. They use stars now instead of dots. Still a 5 star rating system, which is fine. I like the facts and little captions they usually have at the top of each page. Reviews are nice, the Editor-In-Chief can be pretty obnoxious sometimes, especially in this month's issue where he talks about how they are all about getting exclusives, like the cover story for Sly (Cooper) 2. (I put Cooper in parantheses, cause the title of the game is actually called Sly 2: Band of Thieves. So you can see they took away the Cooper. I just didnt want you to be confused). And finally the demo disc is usually pretty good. Some months are better than others. I like the Cool Moves section on the disc, where they show u where certain things might be or how to beat a certain area or boss or where shortcuts might be in a game. I hope they havent stopped permanently showing what will be in next month's disc, which is usually on the last page.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Worst magazine subscription
    I love this magazine, but there are too many problems with ordering. First I sent my payment in January (beginning of January) and I did not receive my first issue until the end of May. I called Customer support and they lied saying they had sent it out. In total I had to call them 3 times just for them to start sending my magazines. The first issue was a way advance issue in July and it said my subscription would end in April. I called them again to see what was going on and they said they would extend my subscription by one issue. I looked on the next issue and they didn't even put when my subscripion ended. To this day I don't even know if I am going to get all of my issues since all they do is lie to you.
    However, this is a great magazine and if you want to deal with Playstations stupid customer support and don't mind waiting over 3 months for your first issue then by all means go and get a subscription. When my subscription ends I will not renew it unless it's like $25. I can think of 40 things you can better spend $40 on. Good luck

    OPM is almost the best Playstation 2 magazine. The staff is truly skilled in writing and organizing the magazine...sometimes. The pages can get a bit messy at times. With pictures all over the place with reviews squeezed in. It's not a pretty appearance all of the time.
    I would give this mag 2 stars if it wasn't for the demo disc which is it's best attribute overall. The disc is always full of great demos to newer games and it's also crammed with other goodies such as "how tos" and videos.
    I suggest PSM over OPM.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great, reliable source w/ a demo disc!!!
    I have been subscribed to this mag since before PS2 came out, and it has always proved to offer reliable, well explained and accurate reviews, as well as early previews and interesting articles. Not only is it good to read, but it comes with a demo disc, which is packed with demos, video previews, game files, and other helpful and interesting features. If you are trying to choose one mag to subscribe to, this is the one you want. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars A balanced approach to woodworking - tools, techniques, proj
    Woodworkers Journal has attracted some of my favorite woodworking experts from the other magazines. Michael Dresdner, Ellis Wallentine, Shondor Nagaslaski are all great tool and woodworking experts and give me the information that I need to advance my skills and keep working in the shop interesting. I can hardly wait for the next issue to arrive. It will have shop tips, jigs, finishing tips and projects. No other magazine has this well rounded approach to woodworking.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Advanced work
    I subscribe to several woodworking magazines and have subscribed to Woodworkers Journal since 1990. Each magazine has a character of it's own with a woodworking level reflected in the complexity of the projects it presents. This magazine is a bit more complex than, say Wood magazine. It should be understood that some style and esthetics are usually compromised when a project is simplified. I have one of Woodworking Journal's projects in my living room. It is perhaps the most beautiful piece I have ever made. If you have become an advanced amature (sp?) this magazine will give you projects that you will take pride in making and showing to others. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Entertaining, accessible, and reliable
    GamePro is very product-focused--you'll see the biggest coverage of most games just as they're about to hit stores, which makes sense (that's when they matter most to consumers, at the point of purchase). The reviews are detailed enough to justify the scores but not long-winded or self-indulgent the way many websites are. GamePro also features strategies (a dying breed) and plenty of codes each issue. They're also the only mag to do a consumer advocacy column (Buyers Beware), a semi-regular arcade report, and they've had an online gaming column for about five years--how's that for ahead of the curve?

    One of the things I like best is that GamePro doesn't print rumors. I know that if I read it in GP, it's substantiated; I don't get that vibe from many of the other mags, who like to fill space with gossip coluns and pass it off as fact. Nor does GamePro cover non-game stuff (DVD reviews, new CD releases, pseudo-celebrity profiles) and call it content the way OPM, EGM, and just about all other mags seem to do lately. If it's in GamePro, it's because it has relevance to GAMES. As a result, I feel like I'm getting my money's worth as a gamer.

    Some folks are turned off by GamePro's bright colors and use of cartoon characters for editors; I don't think it's a problem, because it's enterataining and nobody's hiding behind those animated faces. The GP editors are unusually accessible--they answer their email personally and show up on public websites/game servers all the time, and I've seen them discuss exactly how their magazine works on their website with their biggest fans and harshest critics alike. I don't know of any other game mag that does that, let alone one so successful. Never mind the animated faces--if you're looking for editorial accountability, you can't do better than that.

    Bottom line, GamePro's earned my trust.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Great Magazine
    An awesome mag which covers reviews,previews,codes, walkthroughs,news,letters from readers and helpfull info about games.great in many perspectives and quite cheap.
    EGM is better for reviews,previews,news and letters.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great information....and affordable.
    One thing that I like about GamePro magazine is the un-bias reviews. They do not review a game such as Final Fantasy always with good reviews just because of the fan base. They are honest with their opinions and review each game singally for what it is and don't just call it "Good" just because the sequels or prequels are good.
    Some may argue that it is not as good of a magazine because it talks about all the systems even ones you may not have. Well, I find that to be inspiring to buy new systems and it also shows that GamePro doesn't say the game is good, just based on the system.

    I sometimes have problems with magazines such as Nintendo Power, Playstation, ect...not because they are bad magazines, but because their opinions seemed to be based on advertising. Of course Nintendo Power is going to say good things about a Nintendo game...that's what the magazine is about, and if Nintendo Power would say something bad about a Gamecube or GBA game, it definately would not be a good one to buy.
    With GamePro on the other hand, you get real opinions. It is a magazine for all systems.
    There are special sections for several types of games, RPG, sports, ect. They include Previews, Reviews, and a chart to show their ratings based on a 5 point review.
    The artwork and color inside is great and shows good pictures from the games. Information is interesting, updated, and the reviewers are very good writers.

    It's a truthfull magazine with great information, pictures, and definately affordable. I paid $19.95 for my first subscription and renewed it for $12.00, so that's a great deal!

    3-0 out of 5 stars Good only if you own all the systems
    Gamepro is a good source if you own a PC, GBA, Gamecube, Xbox, and PS2, but if you own only one or 2 of those, then you would be better off subscribing to a more focused magazine, like OPM or PSM (for PS2). It is very broad, which makes sense because it covers 5 systems. I only own PS2 and PC (I have a GBA but only use it on car trips or on a plane), so it doesn't do much for me.

    1-0 out of 5 stars If I could give negative stars....
    This magazine is just plain horrible. I have been receiving it for about 4 years now, and each year, Gamepro gets signifigantly worse. I subscribe to all major gaming mags (OPM, EGM, CGW) and this is the worst by far.

    Visuals and Durability- It's horrible. The new "redesign" is an eyesore and it makes the mag almost impossible to look at. To make it worse, Gamepro is printed on really cheap paper that is flimsy and rips easy. It feels like fax paper! Every month, Gamepro comes to me with at least 5 rips in the pages or cover. The screenshots of games look to be of the lowest resolution possible. And, the mag is over 50% ads!! Not even good ones- crappy ones for crappy games that no one has even heard of.

    Previews- Gives little information, and very poorly written. They fail to make the stories even remotely interesting or engaging. The other mags (OPM and EGM) have about twice as much info on games. The only preview I have found of any use in the past 2 years of Gamepro was about The Bard's Tale. Isn't 18 bucks a year expensive for 1 helpful preview?

    Reviews- Utterly useless. These are a joke. I have been burned numerous times by buying crappy games that Gamepro rates good. It seems that every damn game gets a 4 out of 5, whether that game is ATV Offroad Fury (good) or Mickey's Crapstravaganza (hmm let's think about that one). I think I could send them an empty box that says "Gamepro Sucks" all over it, and they would rate it a 4 out of 5. The lame names of the reviewers don't help much either. Dan Elektro? Four Eyed Dragon? D-Pad Destroyer? What kind of sad crap is that?!?!?

    Covers- Surprisingly, the cover art is generally good, probably to sucker people into buying a magazine that shouldn't even be used as a firestarter. Once you get past that pretty cover everything goes downhill. Fast.

    Why anyone would like this magazine is beyond me. I have repeatedly tried to cancel my subscription, only to be greeted the next month with an unwelcome present. I would rather the mailman put dog crap through my mail slot than this "magazine".
    There is one redeeming quality: If you really hate someone who plays a lot of games, you can give this to them as a present. Then you can watch them cry after they waste their money on some crap that Gamepro said was good. Otherwise, if you're looking at subscribing to a multiplatform gaming mag, get EGM. It's got good reviews, funny articles and sure as hell beats the crap out of this trash. ... Read more
