“Was The Best Nintendo Magazine Ever”

Written on: 07/06/2013 by Dr_Doctor (1 review written)

I'm talking about the one written by Tim Street, Dean Smith, Kingsley Singleton, Frank Cifaldi, Mike Jackson, and all the others I can't recall from the top of my head. It was very witty, funny, and fairly unbiased despite it being supposedly biased. It's a shame when the rights were sold to Future Publishing, the team was replaced with a new writing team. It was then renamed to Official Nintendo Magazine and then I lost interest in it. Why I lost interest? Because the newer writing team was… Read Full Review

Is no longer in print but used to be very good, it was witty, well written and not biased. When the new staff took over from previous editor Tim Street it was no longer as good, and I lost interest… Read Full Review

Written on: 24/07/2007 by steviejones (7 reviews written)

I loved the old NOM, the extremely witty and in my opinion largely intelligent team consisted of Tim Street, Dean Scott, Kingsley Singleton, Mike Jackson and Rob Burman who wrote the magazine wonderfully. It seems the new mag, as I have only come back to it recently, has done away with them apart from Mike Jackson. As said, it is still readable, but is without the love of previous issues. I still get out my old copies and flick through captions and reviews, as well as the genius of 'Bobby… Read Full Review

“Offical Nintendo Magazine used to be good, and was...”

Written on: 16/02/2006 by damsel64 (1 review written)

Offical Nintendo Magazine used to be good, and was surprisingly lacking bias for an offical magazine (see official PS2 magazine's reviews of killzone, goldeneye and 50 cent for examples of bias). That was maybe ten years ago. Then in the N64 time period they had a change of editorial, and from that point on focused on the kiddie demographic of gamers. The style was unfortuante, and even if I was a child I would have found it patronising. Alas… Read Full Review

You seem to have also noticed the weird change that a lot of mags went through circa 99-00. I read your comments on my review of Gamesmaster. It seems that all the old favourites either went bust (CVG) or just morphed into garish, hideous and pathetic comics. The best mags in my opinion were the old style 1990s GM, Sega/Saturn Power, Amiga Power, Mean Machines Sega, N64, and 1996 - 98 CVG. The only contemporary one that even compares to those is GamesTM. All the others re either written by buffoons, have page layouts like the Beano and they read more like Ikea catalogues than games mags. Unsuprisingly, I dont buy any mags these days.

“Nintendo Official Magazine (N.O.M) UK is a very good...”

Written on: 23/08/2004 by mattrainertje (1 review written)

Nintendo Official Magazine (N.O.M) UK is a very good magazine with a very good layout: the reviews are very handy (a good game gets a high score, bad games not).

Also, every month, the magazine bursts with other articles (other than re-and previews) which are very fun to read, too.

Further, you always get the latest news, things that happen in Japan (big in Japan), interviews, masterclass (how to beat your games), cheats, the newest pics, 4 pages fanmail, contests and even game-based puzzles… Read Full Review
