    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.

    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
    If you like puzzles, subscribe to this magazine.

    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
    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@
    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:

    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 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

    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.

    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.

    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 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.

    If you are a new poker player and would like to start playing poker online at - make sure you use the bonus code: "AMAZON25" and you will receive $25 free on your first purchase at You can also use the Bonus Code "AMAZON100" and you will receive a 20% bonus up to $100! If you already play at PartyPoker, you can also play at Use the promotion code "100BONUS" and you will receive 20% up to $100

    4-0 out of 5 stars Very enjoyable MAG ¿ Now Get to Playin
    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 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.

    If you are a new poker player and would like to start playing poker online at - make sure you use the bonus code: "AMAZON25" and you will receive $25 free on your first purchase at You can also use the Bonus Code "AMAZON100" and you will receive a 20% bonus up to $100! If you already play at PartyPoker, you can also play at Use the promotion code "100BONUS" and you will receive 20% up to $100

    5-0 out of 5 stars 5 Stars with an asterisk
    That is, why pay to have it delivered when you can get it for free online at All the articles minus the full page ads. 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

    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

    5-0 out of 5 stars A Truly Hilarious Look At Toys Like You've Never Before Seen
    "Toyfare" is a truly amazing read, and delivers every month. It surely isn't on the level of top-selling magazines such as "People" or "Entertainment Weekly," but it's writing is like none other I've read. Chock full of cheesy pop culture references to Marvel and DC Comics, He-Man, and everything else, "Toyfare" has some seriously funny comedy. If you're not familiar with Marvel and DC lore, you may not get as much of a laugh, but it's truly ingenius, and an underappreciated piece of writing. "Magoo Theatre," (now "Toyfare) is comedy at its best, featuring a skeptical Spider-Man, Homer Simpson-like Hulk, and alcoholic Iron Man. These monthly pieces are gems on their own, only boosted by the comedy bits in the wildly descriptive listings for action figures.

    Be forewarned: "Toyfare"'s humor isn't for every one. Its humor can be hard to understand for people not familiar with comic book lore. But it's well worth a look, even just for the "Toyfare Theatre." You'll be surprised for the better.

    4-0 out of 5 stars No fare like ToyFare
    I tell ya, there ain't nothin' that pushes my geeky side to the forefront like flippin' through the latest ish of ToyFare. Along with Mad magazine and the Wizard comic book price guide, ToyFare was a major factor in helping me maintain my sanity during those long customer-free stretches at the comics-and-collectibles shop I used to work at. Not only did I stay up-to-date on all the latest toy news thanks to the mag's scads of previews, reviews, the Top 10 hot list, and the quick-reference price guide in the back, I also got quite a few good laughs from the sophomoric and sick humor that seemed to ooze from every page. From single-panel "Big Shots" featuring various action figures saying and/or doing very wrong things to each other, to snide remarks about how the readers should "try to get outta your parents' basement every once in a while" in one of the Toy Preview columns, to the appropriately-titled "Twisted ToyFare Theater"*, it's quite apparent the guys who put this publication together every month really enjoy their work, and have a real passion for the hobby they write about. Which is something I've found lacking in other toy collector periodicals I've perused over the years. Another thing I've found lacking in other toy mags is a willingness to throw a few yuks at themselves and the readership, something ToyFare almost OVERdoes in each issue. Admittedly, there are times when the mag's attempts at humor fall flat, or are just plain lame. But for every clinker that hits the ground with a resounding "thud", there's always a few riotously hilarious moments that more than make up for it.

    But before ya dive in for the yuks, lemme give ya fair warnin'. You'll require reasonable running knowledge of just about every popular TV show, movie, comic book, and every pop culture trend that comes down the pike to fully appreciate the many references couched within the endless instances of sick & sophomoric humor. It's kinda like Mystery Science Theater-- some of the references you'll get, while others will go right over your head...


    *Go to for more details on Twisted ToyFare Theater.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Good even if your not into the toys
    I found this mag and thought it would be something my boyfriend would like. Now I steal it from him! Toyfare covers old and new toys, news, and a Toyfare Theater that is hillarious. Try it, you'll like it.

    5-0 out of 5 stars goofy fun for your cuddly inner dork
    Let's face it -- you may never admit it to anyone, but I'm willing to bet that you've got some toys hidden in your closet that you just can't bear to part with. An action figure or two tucked away, perhaps? Or maybe you're not closeted about it at all, and, in true dork fashion, you've devoted some serious bookshelf space to your collection of toys, widgets, and props. Maybe you've gone a little buckwild on eBay from time to time. No matter. If you dig toys and collectables, the folks at TOY FARE are doing everything they can to make you happy. I'll be honest -- I'm not exactly a big toy fan, but I read this book regularly and laugh heartily. The boys on staff have a good sense of humor and their fingers deep in the cookie jar of the toy industry -- if there's some neato knicky-knack you NEED, they'll let you know. Plenty of good fun for your fun side.

    5-0 out of 5 stars good magazine
    It's a magazine about toys, yet it's not for young children. An occasional curse word shows these adults are just kids at heart. The really know what they are talking about. Very comprehensive price guides and an upcoming/preview area. My favorite is the hilarious "Big Shots" and "Twisted Toyfare Theater" with it's imagined conversations between toys. A great magazine for the older bunch who still love toys. ... Read more

    I bet all of you out there can find in your basement or addict old sports memorabilla from when you were a kid, or from some day when you went out with your friends or family.

    How much is it worth ? Is it worth money, or is it a personal memory that is yours to cherish no matter what someone else is willing to pay for it ?

    This magazine will help you find out, and the people writing it seem like a nice group of people, check this one out, its pretty good !

    5-0 out of 5 stars The Best Of The Best
    Here it is. The best magazine for keeping up on what's hot and what's not, in sports memorabilia. While most dealers and collectors look to Beckett for values, the same look to Sports Collectors Digest (SCD for short), for deals on cards and other memorabilia, and to find out what the current trends are. No matter the sport, if there's memorabilia for it, SCD has probably covered it and one time or another. It's very informative in the history and production of baseball and other sportscards. It's also informative and entertaining. The one thing I really love about SCD is their Customer Service Award program. If you go to SCD, and you see a dealer with the Krause Publications Award emblem, you can count on that dealer for service. This is a publication that anyone can enjoy and benefit from. ...

    3-0 out of 5 stars Yu-Gi-Oh Mediocre
    I got this mostly for the Yu-Gi-Oh, for which I give it three stars or less. The broader interest keeps it at that level. For each type, there was a good article or two, maybe a couple pages. The price list is marginal. I would still go with Beckett's for Yu-Gi-Oh and other specialist magazines for others.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Pick Up Scrye! (if your into everything)
    The articles in this publication are top notch. I know a few individuals in the gaming community who contribute to this magazine and they are awesome writers. In addition, the freebies that come sealed and packaged with the magazine are exclusive promotional materials.

    But the one flaw with this book is that if you are purchasing this book for information on ONE game, you will only find three or four pages devoted to it. There is so much information regarding the most popular games (CCG, Minatures, etc) but for an individual who is devoted to only one game, its not worth it. There are better choices for your specific game online; all it takes is a few clicks in a search engine.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Only good for the Price Guide
    If you need to price your Magic cards, theen this is the book for you.

    Otherwise, skip it, as the various articles are poor..

    By dabbling here and there with the various card games, they do none well. They do concentrate on Magic, but their information tends to be worthy only of the newly converted Pokemon player.

    5-0 out of 5 stars This is a great magazine
    This is a good magazine, which provides current market values of various CCG cards. Everyone I know accepts these prices as "Thee" prices. Maybe you don't need whole subscription because the prices don't change all that much. But then again, new sets are always coming out and if you're a serious trader/player, you need to know when things drop out of demand and if you're getting a good deal. Also, it provides Q/A pages and deck strategies and ideas, which help you better use new cards and types. I would recommend at least one issue of this to and CCG'r out there. ... Read more
